We warmly welcome you to our state-of-the-art office in Granada Hills. Here at TLC for Smiles, we combine tender-loving-care with the latest technologies to bring you the best in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics for adults, teens and kids. Our goal is for people to maintain healthy and beautiful smiles throughout their lifetimes.
The entire team at TLC for Smiles is dedicated to changing lives for the better. We start by helping our patients and our care extends into the broader community through community service and support of World Vision, a Christian organization dedicated to helping the poor in the U.S. and abroad.
Our team works together to deliver a consistent and amazing patient experience. We are committed to doing the right thing for our patients, to the best of our ability and to give our patients the best value for their money. At TLC for Smiles, we want to be the best part of your day. We love to make our patients smile!
Our talented dentists include Dr. Catherine Guerrero, Dr. GizelTabibnia and Dr. Janet Schrodi. Dr. Guerrero is a pediatric dentist. Dr. GizelTabibnia is an orthodontist and Dr. Janet Schrodi is both a children’s dentist as well as an orthodontist. All three doctors are invisalign providers. You can see amazing results for invisalign teen and invisalign for adults in our smile gallery!
Both Dr. Catherine Guerrero and Dr. Janet Schrodi are pediatric dentists with training in public health. Therefore both doctors truly emphasize prevention of dental disease. We educate and equip our patients and their parents so that our patients have the best opportunity to avoid tooth decay and gum disease. If ever your child needs any dental restorations, we use the latest research to guide all of our treatment recommendations.At each and every visit, our pediatric dental patients receive a personalized risk assessment for cavities. Patients with high risk are placed in a prevention program that includes enhanced education, closer monitoring as well as topical toothpastes and rinses that help prevent cavities and gum disease. We also proactively place dental sealants on the chewing surfaces of teeth to help seal out tooth decay.
As children mature into the higher elementary school years, both pediatric dentists proactively anticipate common problems that can affect tooth alignment as well as assess how the patients’ jaws are developing. For example, we guide the eruption of permanent teeth, we assess the patient’s swallowing pattern, tongue and lip patterns and we use mouth trainers when necessary to guide development of the jaws and to enhance the development of ideal arch forms.
Because all children in our practice are under the careful watch of professionals who understand jaw and arch development, you can rest assured that if your child needs interceptive orthodontics, this will be identified and initiated at just the right time. TLC for Smiles truly provides your children with comprehensive dental and orthodontic care!
Orthodontics is not only for children. Adults and teens also benefit from beautiful and straight teeth. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean which in turn helps prevent cavities and gum disease. Dr. Janet Schrodi and Dr. GizelTabibnia are talented orthodontists who can treat a majority of cases with invisalign, a series of clear aligners that are used to successively move teeth into better alignment and bite.
It is an honor and privilege for us to help you and your children with your dental health. To schedule an appointment, please call our office at (818) 360-2131.
