Our Story

The Kids' Community Dental Clinic was created to fill a crucial need and gap in oral health care services for children of low income working families. A children's dental clinic existed in Burbank for almost 35 years through the generosity of the Sisters of Providence, St. Joseph Medical Center. When the hospital dental clinic closed in 1997, many working parents had a difficult time finding convenient and low cost dental care for their children.

In 2002, after much planning and with strong local support, we opened our doors to every child in need. We started with the name Kids' Community Clinic of Burbank and in 2004 we changed it to Kids' Community Dental Clinic to emphasize our focus on oral healthcare prevention and treatment and to welcome children who live outside Burbank.
