Get the Care You Need With our
Dr. Wendy Yang is a board-certified pediatric dentist in Poway who offers multilingual care to the Poway community. Whether you speak English, Spanish, or Mandarin, you’ll receive attentive communication to break down language barriers that prevent families from receiving the necessary dental care that they need.
Dr. Yang takes a conservative approach to dentistry which means she will prioritize preserving the existing healthy tooth structures that your child already has. We will always take a minimally invasive approach to dental treatment so that your child doesn’t have unnecessary removal of healthy enamel when it isn’t necessary.
We believe in building long-term smiles that your child can enjoy for the rest of their life. At our office, your child will be greeted by our positive and compassionate dental team. For your child’s ultimate comfort, we offer dental sedation, a playful environment, plenty of entertainment, and a child-friendly office design.
Pediatric dentists are specially trained in the oral development and preserving the oral health of children. Unlike a general dentist, we offer preventive and restorative treatment that is tailored to a little one’s dental needs.
Not only do we offer cleanings, fillings, dental sealants, and pulpotomies, but we also provide education that will empower parents and children to take control of their oral health. We can help you wean your child off of pacifiers and thumb sucking or give you information on how to reduce their cavity risk through oral hygiene and diet.
Up to 10% of children are born with a tight or short frenulum that attaches to their lip or tongue (known as lip and tongue ties) which restricts their movement.
This can cause long-term issues if left untreated, including difficulties breastfeeding, speech impediments, difficulty gaining weight, and long-term feeding issues. We can correct this through a quick surgical procedure that cuts the frenulum under local anesthetic to restore mobility.
As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Yang has undergone additional years of training to earn her specialization, including how to treat patients with special needs.
Whether your child has a physical or cognitive disability or suffers from dental anxiety, we are committed to providing a more accessible and understanding environment that will reduce their stress and fear. We can tailor their treatment plan to meet their specific needs.
If your child has a sensory disorder, we can dim the lights and alter the treatment environment to feel more comfortable. If your child needs a longer appointment, removal of background noise, or wants us to carefully explain what’s going on, we’re more than happy to do this.
