Western Dental is well known for extending credit to its patients with convenient installments at zero interest to make quality dental and orthodontics care affordable, even if the patient's credit isn't perfect. Western Dental also is a participating provider for most major dental insurers and welcomes Denti-Cal.

The orthodontics office will provide a full range of services to diagnose and correct orthodontic problems such as crooked and crowded teeth, overbites and tooth spacing and jaw protrusions. Braces, retainers and other such appliances are among the measures most commonly used to treat such problems. Western Dental's ortho team offers both traditional braces and state-of-the-art invisible aligners (Invisalign®).

Like all Western Dental offices, the new combined family dentistry and orthodontics facility will employ Western Dental's state-of-the-art Quality Assurance Management System (QAMS) for its patients. The system electronically monitors patient care to ensure that patients receive quality care each and every time they come in to the office.
"We are very pleased to be opening a combined family dentistry and orthodontics office to serve the residents of Porterville," said Samuel H. Gruenbaum, president and chief executive officer of Western Dental Services. "This is a special occasion for us not only because we are opening our first dental and orthodontics treatment center in Porterville, but also because it marks our expansion throughout Tulare County."
"We are proud to be part of the growing business community and to be a new neighbor to the residents there," Gruenbaum added. "The full range of general dentistry and orthodontic services we provide, coupled with our office's central location and convenient evening and weekend hours, should be especially helpful to the many working moms and dads living there, as well as the ever increasing number of families moving into the Porterville area."
