Dentists for Teens
My 17 year old daughter is ready to leave the pediatric
dentistry world. Does any one have any recommendations for a
dentist that sees a lot of young adult patients? Thanks.
Dr. Stephen G. Wong
2970 Hilltop Mall Rd., Suite 212
Richmond, CA 94806
He has been my family dentist for over 20 years and he is one of the best
family dentist there is. He is gentle, kind, honest and has a great
sense of humor. My kids love going to see him.
Dr. Roger Koppel at the top of Solano. 527-9564. We've used him for
years. My kids are 16 & 20 now.
I'm looking for a recommendation for a dentist for a teen who's
''outgrown'' his pediatric dentist. He's a bit of a reluctant
dental patient. His parents' dentist seems to have no patients
younger than middle age, so we'd be interested to know of a good
dentist for young adults.

I highly recommend Dr. Scott Mckinzie. He and his staff are awesome!
After having several bad experiences at Pleasant Valley Dental in
Oakland, I found Dr. Scott (on Grand Avenue near Ace Hardware). He is
the best dentist I've ever known - very caring and patient, actually
makes a dental appointment a pleasant experience. His phone number is
510.654.3030 and he has a web site www.scottdentist.com. Can't say
enough good about him!
All of the family sees Dr. Thomas Sharp. He is in Montclair and is
fabulous with all of us, age 50 to 7. Conservative in treatment, smart,
gentle and kind. You cannot go wrong.(510) 482-2799 is his phone
My son recently 'graduated' from his pediatric dentist to
Terlet, on Regent St. in Berkeley. She and her associate, Dr. Aziz have
a family dental practice, and are kind and skilful dentists. The office
staff are helpful, and Dr. Terlet and many other staff are fluent in
Spanish. Their number is 510-548-4084.
A happy dental patient
We're really happy with Lim, Sio and Kaufman off Solano on
Ventura. Nice people, very personal attention, wonderfully
managed front office:

Our daughter has happily been going to Dr. Neil Katsura in Orinda
forever. Insurance options have changed and we now are seeking a new
dentist for her. At her age, 12, perhaps we should be considering a
family dentist rather than pediatric. We are seeking recommendations
of dentists in the Walnut Creek/Lamorinda area who take VSP
insurance. Any recommendations? Any amount of detail you can provide
as to the dentist, the office environment, and the hygienist(s) as
well would be much appreciated.
I don't know what kind of insurance they accept for full payment (all
dentists will accept any type of insurance, but it may not cover the
full cost), but I can recommend
Dr. Scott Lothamer, 1030 Country Club
Drive, Moraga, CA 925-376-4602.
We have Delta Dental.
Our hygenist, Jayne is the greatest.
My wife & I and our two 13 year old teenagers go to Dr. Lothamer

I highly recommend
Art of Smile Family Dentistry in Lafayette. Dr.
Dontinneni is highly skilled, very caring and has all state of the art
equipment. She is a mom herself of 2 elementary age children. Her
office is absolutely beautiful. I'm sure your child would feel very
comfortable in her office. Go to www.art-of-smile.com for more
