Last week, Western Dental, which happens to be one of the country’s largest dental providers, got a little bit bigger. On September 7, 2017, the company announced it had purchased Kids Dental Kare, a provider of pediatric dental services in the State of California.
In total, Western Dental will acquire 14 locations from Kids Dental Care. Offices acquired are located in Huntington Park, Hollywood, East Los Angeles, El Monte, Panorama City, Lynwood, Fresno, Oxnard, and more. Kids Dental Kare has a history of providing high quality pediatric dentistry to communities that are often left underserved.
The firm has also worked actively with Denti-Cal, which is a part of the Medi-Cal public insurance program. Medi-Cal provides health benefits to more than 13 million low-income individuals and families. With the support of Western Dental, Kids Dental Kare will begin providing Orthodontics services at most of its offices.
After the acquisition of Kids Dental Kare, Western Dental now have 190 offices in California. 24 are dedicated pediatric dentistry and orthodontic offices.
