Welcome toPediatric Dental Specialists

Welcome to Pediatric Dental Specialists located in Long Beach, California! We consider dental health to be an integral part of overall good health. Our practice philosophy is to provide dental education and treatment, as well as orthodontics, for children, teens, and those with special healthcare needs. We believe that good dental health can instill a sense of well-being, provide a lifelong smile, and promote good overall health.

Dr. Santos Cortez, Dr. Estela Sanchez, and Dr. Ana Planells, as well as our team, are committed to supporting and educating our patients to care for their teeth and gums and help in the prevention of dental disease. We strive to achieve this goal in an environment that is soothing and welcoming to both parents and children of all ages.

We have been serving patients in Long Beach and surrounding cities for over 30 years. We are a proud community partner and help support many local charity organizations that provide services to children, such as the Assistance League of Long Beach, Children Today, Children’s Dental Health Clinic, Miller Children’s Hospital, and From Maddi’s Closet. We take interest in the activities our patients are involved in, and support many of their activities in the community by sponsoring their athletic teams, arts programs and volunteer efforts.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming your children into the Pediatric Dental Specialists family!
