Welcome to Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill

Since 1973, Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill has provided the best in children’s dental care in a fun and comforting environment. With gentle and positive experiences, we set each child on the path to a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles!

Our board-certified pediatric dentists — Dr. Amybeth Harmon, Dr. Jennifer LaRocque, Dr. Jay Golinveaux, Dr. Joyce Bright and Dr. Joanna Meekay — are dedicated to caring for each patient as a wonderful individual.

Whether seeing your infant or toddler at the first visit, providing preventive care or restorative treatment for an older sibling, or addressing a dental emergency, our focus is always on the child’s health and comfort. Our doctors use Solea*, a dental laser for drill and needle-free procedures as well as to release tongue and lip-and tongue-ties.

We offer nitrous oxide for the comfort of your youngster and, in certain cases, oral conscious sedation or general anesthesia. General anesthesia is offered, in office by dual board-certified pediatricians and anesthesiologists who also work at Children’s Hospital, Oakland.

Our doctors and team always want our patients to feel safe and welcome in our office and at ease in our care. We invite you to learn more and schedule your son or daughter’s next dental visit at our Pleasant Hill, CA pediatric dental office.

We offer early-morning appointments and Saturdays for your convenience.

We serve infants, children, teens, and special needs youth from Pleasant Hill, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Martinez, Concord, and surrounding communities. Our doctors and team look forward to serving your family too!
