PDI Surgery Center's mission: To maintain a sustainable dentistry resource that will serve the low income children of Northern California who need safe sedation for dental treatment, and to provide prevention education and promote oral health.

PDI Surgery Center is the only non-profit pediatric dental surgery center in the United State focusing on treating children with severe tooth decay under general anesthesia.  Tooth decay is the nation's number one childhood health epidemic. 

 

PDI Surgery Center provides a vital resource for children in urgent need of dental surgery in and beyond the North Bay. PDI hopes to eliminate the pain, suffering, and distractions that living with Early Childhood Caries (cavities) causes. PDI is a licensed and accredited ambulatory surgery center.

 

2013 marked our 5th year in operation and we treated our 10,000th patient! We are proud to continue serving children and families from 30 counties who need our services. 

Often, PDI is the only option for Northern California children who need access to dental surgery. 

Thank you for your continued support to help give kids the gift of a lifetime: healthy smiles!
