Kensington Dental Care Named ‘Best of the Bay’

KENSINGTON, Calif., June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- As a child Louie B. Mendoza, DDS, was fascinated by teeth. So it's no wonder he became a dentist and excelled in the profession.

His practice, Kensington Dental Care, was recently featured on KRON 4's "Best of the Bay" as the "Best General Dentist," making it the first dental practice in Contra Costa County to appear on that prestigious list.

"We're very proud to have been recognized in this manner," says Dr. Mendoza, who delivers gentle preventive, restorative and cosmetic care to both adults and children. "We focus on preventive care and do all we can to teach our patients the benefits of good oral hygiene because we want their teeth to be functional and last a lifetime."

A longtime resident of the Bay Area, Dr. Mendoza is a graduate of the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry. In 1998 he bought an existing practice in Kensington and made it his own, carefully balancing professionalism and personality to create a unique dental environment.

The boutique-style practice is located at 296 Arlington Avenue. Its warm colors and attractive decor immediately put patients at ease, whether they're having an exam and cleaning, teeth whitening, a single-visit porcelain restoration or other services.

Dr. Mendoza has forged a family business with the easy feel of the town it serves. His wife Cecie staffs the front office, greets patients and offers them tea or water and a snack after their appointments. Massage chairs, personal DVD players with individual headphones and a mindful staff also help make each visit as pleasant as possible.

But there's nothing provincial about the care. Dr. Mendoza is known for taking his time, listening to patients and working at their pace. He offers nitrous oxide to those who need extensive care, suffer from dental anxiety or just want a more relaxed visit. And he uses high quality dental materials and a first-rate dental lab to ensure long-lasting work and brighter, healthier teeth.

That's because Dr. Mendoza has transformed his childhood fascination with teeth into a driving force to help others preserve their smiles and boost their self confidence.
