Sacramento Kids Dentistry was founded to change the way kids and parents feel about coming to the dentist. We want your visit to be filled with joy.
Founding dentist, Maha Almusawi, graduated magna cum laude from CSU Sacramento, and then went on to grauduate from the prestigious University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry in San Francisco.
Dr. Maha's passion has always been pediatric dentistry. After graduation, she worked as an associate dentist in a pediatric group practice in the Bay Area and in the greater Sacramento area. She eventually relocated to Sacramento to open a private practice with her sister, but she followed her passion and opened Sacramento Kids Dentistry.
Through ongoing education and experience, Dr. Maha is able to offer a comfortable, warm and friendly care to children. She earned her Pediatric Oral Conscious Sedation certification and license through the State of California. She has over 10 years of experience working with young children and infants. Children love her fun and bubbly attitude.
In the summer, Dr. Maha enjoys hiking nature trails and biking along the river. She prefers to stay indoors in the winter, except when she’s skiing the slopes of Tahoe. Dr. Maha is adventurous and loves to try new foods and activities.
At Sacramento Kids Dentistry we offer regular dental cleanings with fluoride and sealants as needed for your child's oral health care. Regular dental check-ups and preventative care is key to having a happy healthy smile. At these routine dental care visits our team will be able to diagnose tooth decay before they spread deeper into the tooth and cause pain.
We offer tooth colored fillings for the smaller cavities. The larger cavities tend to need baby root canals and full coverage crowns to protect your child's tooth until it's ready to fall out. Space maintainers are also a great treatment option for baby teeth that have been lost prematurely. For children who are too small to go through dental treatment we offer SDF (silver diamine fluoride) to arrest the visible cavities. We also have nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" to take the edge off during treatment.
