Dental Care, Your Way.

Equal parts progressive technology and warm, friendly service with a smile, Dr. Childs has been meeting the dental needs of Orange County families and professionals for more than 30 years.

A true Orange County local, Dr. Childs graduated from Marina High School in Huntington Beach, and Magna Cum Laude from UC Irvine with a degree in biology. He recieved his doctorate of dentistry from UCLA, attending as a Regent's Scholar. He is a member of the American Dental Association and has embraced a life of exploring, educating and researching all things related to dentistry, whether health and exercise, or most prominently, diet. Dr. Childs "walks the talk", embodying the same healthy lifestyle he encourages in his patients. A vegan and avid runner, Dr. Childs has completed seven marathons and weekly runs nine miles of trails in Morro Canyon. He and his wife have raised three children in Fountain Valley and are now enjoying the incredible gift of four grandchildren, all living locally.

What People Are Saying

“This is a great office, true professionals & since I’m a dental fanatic, they will keep me cavity free & going strong!”

- Paul M. | Newport Beach, CA

“Dr. Childs and his staff are very friendly, always remembering who we are and what is going on in our lives. I also enjoy having the option to listen to my preference of music through headphones during cleanings. It makes for a very pleasant experience.” 

- Sabrina R. | Mission Viejo, CA

“Dr. Childs is a minimalist, he is not looking to rob your savings account and he was so patient in working with my dental-o-phobic kids, LOL. Needlesstosay, we adore him and my kids are not afraid of the dentist anymore :)”

Meet the Staff


Registered Dental Hygienist

Kerry is quite simply the best! She listens attentatively to any sensitivities or patient concerns and happily adjusts her cleaning regime to best suit your needs. Kerry prides herself on performing gentle but thorough teeth cleanings. She always goes the extra distance to educate patients about their role in oral hygiene care.

Kerry earned her bachelors degree in Dental Hygiene from USC. Endlessly active with her husband and three children, Kerry still finds time to skin dive and play tennis regularly (just two of her favorite pastimes).


Registered Dental Assistant

Being greeted by Connie is like being wrapped in a warm blanket. Her friendly smile and nurturing personality allow even the most reluctant patient to feel comfortable and well cared for.

Her degree in early childhood development is put to good use with our younger patients. Connie has seen many of our patients as children who are now bringing in their own children!


Registered Dental Assistant

Cherise came to our office as a young dental assisting intern. In addition to her professional skill set, her warm personality was an added bonus. Cherise can be found by Dr. Childs side in the operatories, but is equally qualified to run the front office. She is ready and available to assist our patients in every aspect of dental care. Cherise and her husband recently welcomed their first baby boy into the world.


Registered Dental Assistant

We think is says a lot about a practice when the newest staff addition was over 10 years ago. That was the case until Liddy joined us. Her experience in general and pediatric dentistry has brought an added dimension to our office.

Outside of dentistry, Liddy and her family are active members of their church where she volunteers as a Sunday school teacher. Sewing is a favorite activity and she has shared her baking skills by treating our staff to delicious home made cookies and cakes!


Business Manager

Armed with a business degree from CSULB, Wendy has mastered all aspects of our business office. From navigating the most complex insurance issues to answering all things financial, Wendy is the expert. She has even been known to act as a concierge and recommend restaurants, shops and leisure activities!

A happily married mom of three, she is a whirlwind of family activities and charity work.


Practice Administrator

Sue mostly works behind the scenes making sure everything at the office runs smoothly. From organizing, facilitating, and ordering, Sue is a knowledgable resource for all our patients.

You may find her filling in at the front office and answering phones when needed but most of her work is done during non-patient hours.
