What Is A Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric Dentists take additional two to three years to focus exclusively on the oral health, growth and development of children. Just like a pediatrician is a doctor specific for children, a pediatric dentist is a dentist specific for children and adolescents.

Dr. Mori is specifically trained and certified as a pediatric dentist to provide the highest quality oral health care for ages 21 and under.

Why Is Board Certification Important?

Not all Pediatric Dentists are certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). The ABPD board certification indicates that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary 2-part examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.

Dentists certified through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) hold the highest possible credentials within the field of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Mori strives to provide the best oral care for your child and this board certification is a testament to her dedication.


Our newly built office, located in Torrance California, is designed to embody the same relaxed and optimistic energy that Dr. Mori and her team bring to their patients. Our space’s bright and airy California coastal style is punctuated by high ceilings and waves of aquatic blue. With bubbly touches like porpoises suspended over the waiting room, oceanic murals that line treatment rooms, a rainbow wall, and prize-dispensing machines, the space is made to invite and engage kids throughout the course of their visit.



Routine visits, preventive treatments, and setting up your kiddos with early oral health education are the best defenses against dental issues. We offer fluoride treatments and protective dental sealants to keep your child’s smile pearly white and healthy.


Fluoride and sealants are a great tool to prevent decay, however, teeth are still prone to decay, infection and breakage. In order to get them back to health they do need to be restored. We are able to offer more options for restoring primary and permanent teeth back to health. Primary teeth are such an important part of allowing the permanent teeth to grow in a healthy environment.

Emergency Care

Nothing is more important than your child’s health, and we understand the importance of immediate care during a dental emergency. We offer same-day and walk-in appointments to make emergency care as convenient as possible.


Some children are not candidates for nitrous oxide because of level of anxiety, age, or extent of required treatment. For these patients, we offer treatment with IV sedation administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. If your child is a candidate, this treatment would be offered in-office.


Dr. Mori is an excellent dentist. She’s been seeing my children for the past year at a different location. She’s amazing with kids and Is very patient. I would recommend Dr. Mori with your little ones.
