About Us

At Children’s Choice, we have a vision of providing access to quality engaging care to children all over California, and we strive for our patients to be cavity-free. At Children’s Choice, four vital principles guide our care and services:

  • Quality Care
  • Positive Experiences
  • Education
  • Prevention

Our Children’s Choice locations provide quality care with no mercury fillings. We use digital x-rays that reduce radiation by 90%. Our patient education tips and prevention products such as vanilla- and chocolate-flavored xylitol toothpaste and fluoride gels can help children prevent cavities by 50%.

Our offices are rich with child-friendly murals, video games, engaging games and toys to help children feel comfortable. A separate play area is also provided for infants and toddlers. Our hospitality stations offer coffee, tea, and reading materials. Parents are welcome to join their children during treatments.

Children’s Choice places a strong emphasis on developing positive experiences for our patients. We believe that visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be worrisome. We treat children as our own. We hope you make our “dental home” your own.

Our Story

Dr. Jeffrey A. Saladin, Founder of Children’s Choice Pediatric Dental Care, opened the first location in 2005. During his Pediatric Dentistry residency, his passion for serving children grew, especially for underserved populations. He envisioned a place where children could be actively engaged and become excited about receiving dental care. As he pursued his vision of providing quality evidence-based care in engaging dental offices, he expanded the reach and care access points across the state of California. Currently, there are 11 Children’s Choice location, with plans to add more locations in late 2019.
