What Sets Us Apart

As a premier pediatric dental and orthodontic practice in Santa Cruz since 1994, Brent J. Porter, DDS and our team provide exceptional care from beginning to end, offering quality preventive care, education, and a very positive first dental visit.

We enjoy the company of children and believe every child deserves a positive dental experience. Our team works hard to deliver a superior experience that educates and excites the youth about coming in for their next dental visit.

Why choose us as your child’s dentist?

  • Dr. Porter and our team are known in the Santa Cruz community for being professional, warm, and welcoming to our families.
  • The experience we offer our patients is unique, valued, and cannot be duplicated. Our practice is a sole proprietor practice, so when you arrive, you’ll see Dr. Porter every time.
  • We offer comprehensive care from infancy through young adult under one roof with a family room treatment area for siblings to be seen together.
  • We encourage chairside parental support to maximize preventive care, allowing us to establish new habits from brushing and flossing to diet counseling.
  • Our Santa Cruz dental office features an ocean theme, which is soothing and fun. Plus, we offer a separate teen/young adult wing of the office with sport videos and cool music.   
  • As a team, we acknowledge our patients’ birthdays, sports, accomplishments, and achievements. We believe everything about your child should be celebrated!

We feel honored for the opportunity to treat your family. We appreciate the trust you’ve put in us to care for your child’s smile.
