CGWA Business Partner Highlight: A Kidz Dental Zone

dental zone 2Who can’t resist returning a bright, healthy smile? At A Kidz Dental Zone, the business at hand is growing and maintaining irresistible smiles with healthy teeth and gums. Patients and families receive oral care and education at cheerful clinics that are brightly decorated with murals created by artist Mark Nilsson. The art depicts outdoor lifestyle scenes from around the Columbia River Gorge that scream, “Go outside, get moving, enjoy the fresh air and beauty!”

A Kidz Dental Zone came to the Gorge in 1999 and currently operates out of two locations, one in Hood River and one in The Dalles. The clinics are specifically designed for children and create a positive, inviting and secure atmosphere. Pediatric dentistry is their specialty and the entire Oral Health Team reflects that purpose in specialty training and passion. Children and their health fuel Dr. Houses’ advocacy at local, state and national levels.

Although the offices are shiny, clean and beautiful, Dr. House and his staff don’t spend all their time in the office. They are involved with our local community in many different ways. These include partnerships with Head Start, WIC, and the Health Departments in both Washington and Oregon. Their tooth fairy visits local schools and preschools to teach the importance of oral hygiene in a non-threatening environment. The fun factor is bumped up with a free pool party and BBQ in July, giveaways at Families in the Park, and fun games with prizes at the Hood River County Fair. They sponsor the Gorge Kids’ Triathlon, the Apple Knockers’ Kids’ 3-D archery shoot, the Bed Pan Open, Mom Prom and FFA to name a few.dental zone 3

CGWA is proud to have A Kidz Dental Zone as a sponsor for our Gorge Groms Youth Program again this year and looks forward to seeing them at the Beach Bash in June. For all your oral pediatric and adolescent care, A Kidz Dental Zone has the most experienced Pediatric Oral Health Team in the Gorge by far. They care about kids, know how to make them smile and make smiles dazzle.
