Raised in Modesto, it was Dr. Miguel Padilla's dream to come back and serve the community. Dr. Padilla completed a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Pennsylvania along with a Public Health Degree. The combination of these two degrees helps Dr. Padilla practice a minimally invasive approach.
Prevention is Dr. Padilla's main treatment philosophy. As a pediatric dentist, he is able to help educate and navigate children and their families with their oral health. His goal is to reduce the caries load for his patients and make them advocates of good oral health. He strives to achieve this in a culturally competent manner to make families excited about visiting the dentist.
