“South Bay allergy doctor often works closely with pediatric dentists when treating children with allergies.”
Riviera Allergy Medical Center, headed by Ulrike Ziegner, MD, PhD, is an allergy and asthma center that focuses on the treatment of asthma in children and allergy testing children. After testing for food allergies in children, it may be necessary for parents to take their children to visit a pediatric dentist.
In an effort to ensure that children with allergies get the right treatment as well as the right nutrition, Dr. Ziegner recommends her patients see a pediatric dentist. In some cases, testing for food allergies in children may require a pediatric dental professional to further assess any health deficiency.
The final selections were chosen based on experience, education and over all genuine concern for helping children relieve discomfort and improve their quality of life. If you are seeking a referral for a pediatric dentist in the South Bay area, Dr. Ziegner is happy to recommend one of the following.
Dr. Janelle Holden, DDS – Top Pedriatic Dentist
Dr. Janelle Holden graduated with honors from University of Southern California’s School of Dentistry. She is a wife and mother of two sons: Chase and Blake, and Blake is a child with special needs. As a mother and a pediatric dentist, Dr. Holden understands the difficulty parents have in convincing their children – especially children with autism and sensory difficulties – to brush properly.
To help her own son and other parents in similar situations, Dr. Holden developed a toothpaste that is wheat- and gluten-free, non-foaming and tastes great, so children find brushing their teeth a fun experience. The toothpaste product has been a delight to many parents who don’t like the products on the market and a treat for children with allergies.
Dr. Holden’s office is in Manhattan Beach (451 Manhattan Bch. Blvd., STE D 226) and every effort has been taken to ensure a fun experience visiting the dentist (for parents and children). Her private practice is designed with a kid-friendly jungle theme. Every room has a jungle animal, and there are two family rooms – each with dual dentist chairs so that siblings can be treated at the same time.
Schedule your next pediatric dentist appointment by calling Dr. Holden’s office at (310) 545-5757. You can also visit Dr. Holden’s website for more details.
Dr. Marina Lange, DDS – Top Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Marina Lange graduated from Case Western School of Dentistry and specializes in Periodontal Disease and Endodontics. She is also a certified Cosmetic Dental Surgeon. Her first priority is preserving her patient’s natural teeth. While prosthetics like bridges, crowns, veneers, etc. are excellent options for a child who loses a tooth due to unusual circumstances, Dr. Lange and her team will do everything they can to ensure that your child’s natural teeth are preserved – including educating your child on proper brushing techniques and preventative care.
Dr. Lange ensures that patients who visit get her undivided attention. More specifically, her team does not schedule overlapping appointments so parents and child patients can get the support they need without waiting their turn. In addition, Dr. Lange’s office can set up parents on payment plans through a financial company when long-term dental treatment, like that usually required to straighten teeth, is required.
Dr. Lange’s office is located in Redondo Beach (1611 South Catalina Avenue, Suite 200). She recommends pre-scheduling your next appointment each time you leave, especially if you need appointments outside work hours. Call her office at (310) 316-0850 to get an appointment. You can also visit Dr. Lange’s website for more details.
Dr. Michelle M. Kelman, DDS – Top Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Michelle Kelman specializes in pediatric and adolescent dentistry. She has a private practice and is also on the surgical staff at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. In addition, she is an associate professor at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Dentistry.
Dr. Kelman’s office is designed to treat infants, children, teens and children with special needs. If any patient requires special care due to a specific concern, her office staff is instructed to make accommodations to ensure the patient has the best possible dentist visit. In some cases, a child’s facial and dental development can be disrupted due to mouth breathing – which is commonly caused by allergies and/or asthma in children – and pediatric dental treatment is ideally suited to intervene in these situations, especially while the face, jaws, and teeth are developing.
In addition to providing fun oral hygiene teaching and tips, Dr. Kelman fights the risks of a skin allergy in children. Dr. Michelle insists on biocompatible, non-metal, and BPA-free products for sealants and fillings. Her office uses the latest pediatric dental technology, including high-speed digital x-rays (which reduce radiation exposure up to 90%) and digital photographs, quiet electric hand-held tools and dental instruments, and more.
Schedule your next pediatric dentistry visit by calling Dr. Kelman’s staff at (310) 659-8863. Her office is located in the Cedars-Sinai Medical Towers (8635W. 3rd Street, Suite 255 West). You can visit Dr. Kelman’s website and Facebook page for more details.
