  • We just went for the first time and my son had an awesome experience.

    “My son is 4 years old. He was going to another dentist. We recently moved to Canyon Country and Adventure Dental was recommended to us. We just went for the first time and my son had an awesome experience. The entire building is so inviting and specifically tailored toward kids using jungle animal themes that look absolutely amazing. The assimilated waterfalls add to it to because the theme of course, but also the sound of water is relaxing. The waiting room has A TV, Video game room, toys and books. There are TVs throughout the building. My son was so focused on the movie, he did well with the teeth cleaning. All of the staff, including the dentist, were friendly (soooo good with kids), and welcoming. The technology was helpful in giving a visual while the dentist educated us on dental health and the best part cavities!”

Santa Clarita Pediatric Dentist

Dedicated to Providing Premier Dental Care

Both of our Santa Clarita pediatric dentists attended the UCLA School of Dentistry and completed their residencies at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Boston Children's Hospital. While they have honed their skillset at some of the most respected institutions in the country, Dr. Monti and Dr. Pepper have taken their education one step further by becoming Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Not every specialist is board certified. The certification process is a rigorous and voluntary examination that tests a doctor's knowledge and skills. Maintaining your board certification means that you must periodically be re-examined. This means that Dr. Monti and Dr. Pepper are committed to providing exceptional dental care to their patients by staying up to date on cutting-edge treatment and resources.American Board of Pediatric Dentistry Certified
