“Hi! I’m Dr. Joseph P. Sciarra, known to all my young patients as “Dr. Joe, and I have practiced Pediatric Dentistry in Woodland Hills, CA, for over 40 years.

During that time, I have had the privilege of providing dental care to thousands of the finest children to be found anywhere. As a Pediatric Dentist, I feel strongly about the importance and advantages of introducing kids to their dentist at a very young age. Youngsters that begin their dental visits around age two will learn to accept dental care more readily and with less apprehension. By starting children so young, many dental problems can also be prevented by early intervention.”
