The new office, located at 7860 West Lane in Stockton, will be open evenings and Saturdays and will provide quality orthodontic care at affordable prices.  It will serve all residents living in and around the Stockton area.  

This is in addition to the orthodontics office Western Dental has at 678 Wilson Way in Stockton. Western Dental also operates three other full family dentistry offices in Stockton.

Western Dental is well known for extending credit to its patients with convenient installments at zero interest to make quality dental and orthodontics care affordable, even if the patient's credit isn't perfect.  Western Dental also is a participating provider for most major dental insurers and welcomes Denti-Cal.

The new orthodontics office, like the office at 678 Wilson Way, will provide a full range of services to diagnose and correct orthodontic problems such as crooked and crowded teeth, overbites and tooth spacing and jaw protrusions.  Braces, retainers and other such appliances are among the measures most commonly used to treat such problems. Western Dental's ortho team offers both traditional braces and state-of-the-art invisible aligners (Invisalign®).

Office hours for the new orthodontics office (Phone: 800-466-5555) will be the 1st and 4th Fridays of the month from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and the 1st, 3rd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Managing the orthodontics office will be Dr. Donald Hull.  The office manager will be Gina Balesteros.

The existing orthodontics office at 678 Wilson Way will continue its normal hours of operation from Monday through Saturday every week.

Like all Western Dental offices, the new orthodontics facility will employ Western Dental's state-of-the-art Quality Assurance Management System (QAMS) for its patients.  The system electronically monitors patient care to ensure that patients receive quality care each and every time they come in to the office.

"We are very pleased to be opening our second orthodontics office to serve the residents of Stockton," said Samuel H. Gruenbaum, president and chief executive officer of Western Dental Services.  "We are proud to be part of the growing business community and to be an even more involved neighbor to the residents there," Gruenbaum added.  

Headquartered in the city of Orange, Calif., Western Dental Services currently operates more than 200 dental centers throughout California, and affiliated offices in Arizona and Nevada, many also offering orthodontic treatment.
