About Us

Meet The Smile Rangers, A Dedicated & Caring Team

We are parents, pediatric dental professionals, and members of the Gold River community. Our highly trained, experienced, and caring team offer the highest standards of professional and individual dental care, and strive every day to deliver the very best results possible.

Nothing gives us greater joy than transforming an anxious child into a child who cares for his/her teeth and mouth, and loves going to the dentist. We prioritize preventative care, and work hard to establish lasting relationships with our young patients and their parents. Meet The team:
