We try our best to accommodate our patients with a convenient and efficient appointment. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience. Some appointments may require the child to miss some school; however, these are considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum. We request 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, but we ask for your help as a courtesy to all of our patients. Continued broken confirmed appointments may result in an additional charge.

Our office Environment
Our goal is to make your child’s dental experience with us calm and entertaining while being motivational about good home oral care. We believe that caring for your children’s mouth is one of the most important factors in promoting good health. Treatment is always individualized and patient care centered. Home-care recommendations and instructions will be provided based on your child’s individual needs.
In addition to the oral hygiene instructions, preventative care tips, and nutritional consults you will receive for your child, feel free to ask the doctor or assistants about the materials used in the practice. Dr. Garibyan uses a variety of materials for all fillings and crowns. Additionally, our office uses digital x-rays; digital x-rays reduces radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
If you have any questions or concerns, please ask us. We are here to help you, and look forward to watching your child’s smile grow bigger as they do.
What about finances?
Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided. Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan, which fits your timetable and budget, and gives your child the best care possible. We accept cash, personal check, and most major credit cards. If you have dental insurance we will be happy to file an insurance claim as a courtesy to you.
If a tooth is knocked out (avulsed) and it is a primary (“baby”) tooth, do not try to place it back in the mouth. The chance for success is not very great and it is not worth risking the health of the developing permanent tooth. Let the child place the tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy and give them a Popsicle. The Popsicle will lessen the swelling and slow any bleeding. If it is a permanent tooth, do not scrub it or remove any tissue but place it in a glass of milk. Contact our office as soon as possible so that the tooth may be re-implanted back into the dental socket and properly stabilized.
If a tooth is fractured and the nerve is not exposed, the tooth can be bonded and both esthetics and function can be restored. If there is sensitivity, a small dab of toothpaste can be placed over the exposed dentin to lessen sensitivity until the tooth can be restored. If the nerve is exposed, the nerve needs protection to lessen the likelihood of the tooth becoming non-vital. If the tooth becomes non-vital, root canal therapy can be performed at a later date.
Dr. Garibyan may be reached in an emergency by calling the office at (909) 464-8181, leave your name and phone number with a short message and then hang up and call the number given on the answering machine so that the doctor will be paged. When you enter your number, please include your area code as well. We try to call back as soon as possible but if for some reason the page does not go through, please page the doctor again after one hour.
Pediatric Dentistry of Chino Hills was able to schedule for my son even on a very short notice. Everyone in the dental clinic was so professional and communicated all aspects of care clearly. Hats off to Dr. Garibyan who understand the urgency of my son's situation. She and the staff here were showing very genuine care and concern of my son.
Dr. Garibyan and rest of the staff were absolutely fantastic. My 2 year old daughter went in for her first dental appointment ever and everyone was so nice and attentive. By the time my daughter was left she was super comfortable and making himself right at home. We will look forward for our next visit.
