About Our Practice
We work with our young patients and their parents as a team to create a dental home, a concept established by the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry. This includes comprehensive oral health care, assessment, treatment and emergency care plus the information, guidance and training necessary to ensure development of proper dental care practices at home.
We use digital x-ray because it exposes the patient to the lowest amount of radiation. We follow the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists’ radiation exposure guide- lines, and we use lead aprons to protect the patient’s thyroid as well as other parts of the body.
We specialize in caring for patients with special needs.  We do many dental procedures for children with medical conditions such as autism, and for children who are fearful or medically compromised.
Our practice is a green and paperless office space.
My oldest daughter had some cavities before she turned three. I was very careful in choosing a pediatric dentist. We chose Dr. Kohli because she is the best!! Not only am I confident in her abilities, but her office (with its flight theme) is so much fun for the kids and Dr. Kohli and her staff are wonderful, patient, upbeat and fun. I have recommended Dr. Kohli to several friends and all of them have been thrilled. We feel lucky to have found Dr. Kohli.

My children all love to visit Dr. Kohli. She puts them at ease with her jokes and friendly manner. They are so relaxed about visiting the dentist which is very different from most doctors visits! Her office is a beautiful, inviting place and staff is terrific. I highly recommend Dr. Kohli.
