Keeping you smiling

Dental health is critical for your overall health. And Western Sierra makes it as easy as possible with a state-of-the-art dental suite and a five-dentist practice.

Dental patients can receive regular teeth checkups/cleaning, deep cleaning for gum disease, fillings and root canals in the Grass Valley, Penn Valley, Kings Beach and Downieville locations. Full and partial denture services are provided in the Downieville and Kings Beach centers.

Children’s dentistry is available in Grass Valley, where we have a four-chair dental suite, Penn Valley, Downieville and Kings Beach. Fillings, stainless steel crowns and root canals, including extractions and “space maintainers,” are part of our dentistry service for adults and children.

And, when necessary, Western Sierra dentists refer patients for specialty services – such as orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics (gum-related), pedodontics (children’s dentistry), prosthodontics (dentures) and oral surgery. 

“Our patients are happy to know how many types and levels of dental services we provide, and that we are committed to guiding them to get the best possible care, says Dr. Juan Chavez, Dental Director for Western Sierra. Chavez practiced dentistry in Los Angeles for more than 20 years before relocating to Nevada County and oversees the five-dentist practice. “We’re extremely proud of the practice, and continue to expand what we provide.”
