The following pediatricians/medical groups are being recommended consistently by other Lamorinda families:


#1: Lamorinda Tooth Buds

#2: Moraga Pediatric Dentistry

#3: Aloha Pediatric Dentistry

#4: Walnut Creek Pediatric Dentistry

#1: Lamorinda Tooth Buds

3501 School St, Lafayette, CA 94549

Website: https://www.lamorindatoothbuds.com/

Tel: (925) 369-7788


Neighbors Reviews: We use the nitrous oxide to ease our nerves. They have a private room and a therapy dog on staff if that would help.


Neighbors Reviews: We second Dr Roy at Lamorinda Tooth Buds. My daughter also had a lot of anxiety and trauma around dentistry and Dr Roy has been a complete angel and transformed my daughters experience so much that she actually looks forward to visiting - especially if Buddy the dog is on site. Good luck, it’s not easy!



#2: Moraga Pediatric Dentistry

533 Moraga Rd #100, Moraga, CA 94556

Website: https://www.moragapediatricdentistry.com/

Tel: (925) 247-0193


Neighbors Reviews: My son had been super afraid of the dentist in the past but since switching to Moraga Pediatric Dentistry his whole attitude has changed. He had to get a cavity filled today and was relaxed the entire time. Amazing! Dr. Cheung is so calming and wonderful. If anyone is looking for a good pediatric dentist I highly recommend her.



#3: Aloha Pediatric Dentistry

3 Altarinda Rd #210, Orinda, CA 94563

Website: https://www.alohakidsdds.com/

Tel: (925) 253-8190


Neighbors Reviews: We have had great success and support from Aloha Pediatric Dentistry in Orinda. All the dentists are great, but we really like Dr Kohsrovani. She is so kind, patient and validating with my kiddo. She is wonderful with anxious kids.



#4: Walnut Creek Pediatric Dentistry

1855 San Miguel Drive, Suite 9, Walnut Creek, CA 94596

Website: http://www.walnutcreekpediatricdentistry.com/

Tel: (925) 937-7000


Neighbors Reviews: Dr Jaffrey at Walnut Creek pediatric dentistry has been brilliant with my high dental anxiety kid - she was recommended to us precisely for this reason



#5: Dr. Virginia Ellis

77 Moraga Way Suite E, Orinda, CA 94563

Website: https://www.orindadentist.com

Tel: (925) 478-3237


Neighbors Reviews: She does all ages (me!!) and my kids so it’s easy. I stopped going to a “pediatric” dentist and found Dr Ellis to be far more thorough than the local previous pediatric dentist we went to. My kids love the treasure chest toy closet after their visit! And you can’t beat Karen at the front desk.

355 Lennon Ln #215, Walnut Creek, CA 94598

Most Recommended Pediatric Orthodontics by Lamorinda Mamas


Each of these pediatric doctors, some local and some further away, have been highly recommended and endorsed by other Lamorinda families. Make sure to meet with a few different doctors before deciding on the right fit for your family.


The best advice I got is to pick a provider close to where you live since you will have to go frequently. I heeded this advice and am SO happy I did.

Also, don’t limit yourself to who takes your insurance. We went with someone outside of our network (many insurance offers reimbursement) who has been great; the price was hard to beat. Good luck!
