Western Dental Services, Inc., California’s neighborhood dentist and one of the nation’s leading dental health maintenance organizations, has opened a family and specialty dentistry office in Redding.

A grand opening celebration will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., May 13, to introduce the facility and staff to area residents. The festivities will include a live remote radio broadcast and giveaways from KEWB-FM (94.7), and the chance to spin for free dental goody bags, T-shirts and more on the Western Dental Prize Wheel.

The new office at 1310 Churn Creek Road is conveniently located across from the Mt. Shasta Mall, near the intersection of the 5 and 44 freeways. The high-tech office will add capacity and additional services for Western Dental patients in conjunction with the existing Western Dental office that is steps away in the Shasta Crossroads Shopping Center.

Experienced providers and specialists at the spacious new office will offer a complete range of family dental services, specialty care, Invisalign®, periodontics, pedodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry, including white fillings, veneers, crowns, dental implants and ZOOM!® whitening. The new office will provide Western Dental’s industry-leading, proprietary ORION system, a complete digital experience that includes check-in, X-rays and dental records, as part of Western’s delivery of the Ultimate Patient Experience.

The new location employs 12 staff members, including Managing Dentist Dr. Zhibin Ji, D.D.S., and Alyssa Rilinger, office manager.

Individuals and families can schedule appointments during regular or extended operating hours, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday.  The original location, which has expanded twice since opening in 1997, will continue to offer all dental services, including orthodontics, which were added in June.

“We value the trust that our Redding-area patients have in Western Dental,” said Samuel H. Gruenbaum, Western Dental president and CEO. “With this expansion, we can continue to provide personalized, quality dental care across a range of specialties.”
