Welcome to Gale Ranch Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics of San Ramon! Whether you’re a new patient or a returning one, we’re looking forward to caring for your loved ones and setting the stage for a lifetime of happy, healthy smiling! With that in mind, we firmly believe in building and shaping our policies around what patients need above all else. We encourage you to review the following information in advance of your child’s appointment; that way, once both of you arrive, you know what to expect and can enjoy a positive experience!


Your First Visit

When you and your child enter our pediatric dental office, you’ll both quickly notice that we have TVs, toys, coloring areas, and all sorts of activities to occupy your child while you’re waiting for the appointment. When it’s time, you’ll be called back to a treatment room where we will have your little one sit in the dentist’s chair. We’ll show them the various dental instruments we’ll be using and explain how each of them works, and then we’ll begin by polishing their teeth. Next, we’ll take age-appropriate dental X-rays and then complete an examination of their teeth, gums, and oral structures—we want to be as thorough as possible! We can then provide any necessary treatment recommendations and apply a fluoride gel or varnish to their teeth if needed, and you’ll of course have time to chat with us and ask any questions that might come up. At the end, your child will be presented with a new toothbrush and goodie bag!

New Dental Patient Forms

CareCredit Financing Available

We understand that not every patient is insured, and we also realize that it’s not always easy to pay for a service that’s not covered by dental insurance. That’s why we’re proud to partner with CareCredit! As a third-party financer, they can offer qualifying patients plans with no surprise fees and low-interest rates. That way, instead of having to pay for your child’s entire service upfront, you can spread your payments out over the course of several months. You shouldn’t have to break the bank to help your child achieve a healthier smile!
