About Us

Service Area

Our service area includes Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Napa, and Marin counties, however, due to limited surgery resources for other counties, PDI treats children in 33 counties in California, and even from other states.

Our Patients 

A typical patient treated at PDI is 3.5 years of age, with more than 11 cavities in their primary (baby) teeth. Typically we treat children under the age of seven. Services are all administered under general anesthesia and include cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, crowns, and pulpotomies (root canals on baby teeth).   

Funding and Support

PDI Surgery Center currently accepts Medi-Cal and Healthy Kids insurancesHealthy Families and other similar insurance programs.

More than 85% of medical services provided by PDI Surgery Center are paid by Medi-Cal. The gap in government funding is filled by individual and corporate donations and grants.
