Dr. Laura is a loving mother and board-certified pediatric dentist with over 18 years of experience in her field. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Santa Clarita, her passion for healthcare goes all the way back to her 7th grade human anatomy class, when she told her mom that one day she would become a doctor.
With this dream as her North Star, she moved across the country to attend Brandeis University in Massachusetts. During her time studying biology and anthropology, she fell in love with the art of dentistry and the meaningful, long-term relationships that come with caring for people’s smiles. Dr. Laura went on to become a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, and continued her education in pediatric dentistry at Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry.
In 2014, Dr. Laura’s wish came true when she opened All Kids Dentistry. She couldn’t feel more grateful to give kids in the Santa Clarita Valley the safest and happiest dental experience while creating lifelong friendships along the way. She loves getting to interact with the brilliant kiddos under her care and watch them grow up to be active participants in their oral health!
Outside the office, you can find Dr. Laura cherishing quality time with her two beautiful kids, Noah and Ayla. She’s also a huge travel enthusiast! From open ocean kayaking off the coast of Washington to snorkeling in Belize, she adores adventure and diving into new experiences. As a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, she’s endlessly honing her skills in continuing education courses to support her team and give her patients the absolute best care.
Growing up in Panama and raised by Korean parents, Dr. Alex’s multicultural upbringing has played a huge role in shaping his warm, curious, and compassionate personality. At the age of 18, he moved to Philadelphia to study diplomatic history at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. Embarking on a volunteer dental mission trip in college inspired him to pivot his career path and pursue dentistry. After graduating from UCLA with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, he knew he wanted to make a positive difference in children’s dental care, and completed his pediatric residency program at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
Today, Dr. Alex splits his time between teaching and caring for his patients at All Kids Dentistry! As a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and an adjunct Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Southern California, he’s constantly keeping up with the latest advancements in dentistry and applying the most gentle, conservative methods to his practice. Nothing makes Dr. Alex happier than seeing kids light up and feel genuinely excited about their dental experience. He takes the time to step into his patients’ shoes and put their needs at the forefront of his care.
When he’s not making his little patients smile in the office, Dr. Alex enjoys spending time with his adorable pup, Nala, staying active on the soccer field, and practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
Dr. Paulina Nguyen grew up in Monterey Bay, CA and completed her undergraduate studies at UCLA and dental school at USC. She always has had a passion for working with children and has traveled abroad including Thailand, Vietnam, and Mexico for dental mission trips. Following dental school, she worked in a pediatric dental office and decided to continue her training by completing a pediatric dental residency at NYU Langone in Hawaii. Her post-doctoral training in Hawaii enabled her to serve children across four different Hawaiian islands while advancing her training in general anesthesia, oral sedation, orthodontics, and special needs patients. She returns to southern California where she aims to not only provide quality dental care for infants, children and adolescents, but also create long lasting positive dental experiences from a young age.
In her free time, Dr. Paulina loves to spend time with her family, husband, and adorable labradoodle Nalu. She loves trying new restaurants, drinking coffee, and running by the beach. During basketball season, you can find her glued to the TV or in the Staples Center cheering for the LA Lakers! Dr. Paulina is also fluent in three languages: English, Vietnamese, and Spanish. She hopes to become fluent in more languages and learn more about other cultures as she explores and travels around the world in the future. Although Dr. Paulina is a dentist, she is a child at heart and looks forward to learning the latest Tik Tok trends and dance moves from her pediatric patients!
All Kids Dentistry is made up of the sweetest, kid-friendly experts who will instantly make you and your child feel right at home. We believe the best way to provide for our patients is by growing ourselves personally and professionally every chance we get. We bring lots of laughter and learning to every appointment, so your child can feel excited about taking great care of their teeth! If there’s anything we can do to enhance your family’s time with us, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
When you arrive at our beautiful space in Valencia, our cheerful team will welcome you and your child with big, sunny smiles and thoughtful care.
We know just how important first impressions are, especially when it comes to visiting the dentist. That’s why our kind crew will spend this time getting to know you and your child, taking a tour around the office together, and introducing them to preventive care in a way that’s informative, stress-free, and fun. This process will help to instill a future of happy appointments with a team they know, trust, and look forward to seeing!
Every child deserves an awesome dental experience. If you have a little one with special needs, we offer personalized desensitization visits. Whether it’s getting them comfortable in the dentist chair, breaking up treatments into several appointments, or just stopping by for a sticker or prize, we’re here for all kids!
Our bright and airy office is lovingly designed with delight in every detail. Curated with state-of-the-art amenities and soothing comforts, our practice has everything your family needs for a homey, stress-free stay.
Delivering dental excellence for the little one you love is our top priority. With our best-in-class equipment, we’re proud to offer the most comfortable, conservative, and convenient care that yields high-quality results and lasting smiles.
Here, your children can kick back and relax while we give their smiles top-notch care. We’ve equipped our office with the latest Solea laser to eliminate the anxiety that comes with numbing shots and noisy dental drills. From pain-free fillings to minimally invasive frenectomies, this cutting-edge laser provides second-to-none comfort, precision, and healing time for every treatment.
We want your children to feel safe and empowered when it comes to their dental health. Rather than traditional x-rays, we use the Nomad Mobile X-Ray Unit–known to our little patients as the Buzz Lightyear gun! This innovative imaging technology allows our dentists to take a picture of your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth with exceptional speed, accuracy, and the lowest radiation exposure possible. Because it is a mobile, cordless unit, it can be used for a patient in a wheel chair, one that wants to sit on the floor, or wherever they feel most comfortable!
As a mother of a child with special needs, Dr. Laura is passionate about spreading smiles and making a meaningful difference in the lives of all kids. This greater purpose is what unites our team and fuels our passion, so we’re honored to support Carousel Ranch–a place where therapy takes the form of fun. With local roots in Agua Dulce, this generous non-profit is dedicated to brightening the lives of children and young adults with special needs through equestrian therapy. Together, we’re helping every child in Santa Clarita find healing and hope, one step and one smile at a time.
