Course Description

Less is more when it comes to children's oral health. This applies to almost everything one can conjure up, from junk food intake to the amount of toothpaste used in treating dental caries. Minimally Invasive Dentistry is built upon the same rationale. As clinicians, we are constantly learning and exploring ways to make evidence-based dental treatment easier, faster, and more efficient for our young patients to ensure a lifetime of good oral health and positive dental experiences. As practice owners, we are constantly mindful of incorporating materials and methods that enhance productivity and improve workflow while keeping the overheads reasonably sound.

She provides comprehensive dental treatment to children using non-pharmacologic as well as pharmacologic behavior management techniques including Nitrous Oxide- Oxygen, oral sedation and IV sedation with a dental anesthesiologist. Dr. Kanuga prides herself in the practice of Evidence-based dentistry and an emphasis on preventive oral care for young children.

Dr. Kanuga serves as an Editor at the San Fernando Valley Dental Society and chairs the Social Media Committee of the CSPD.

She established her state-of-the-art fully digital pediatric and orthodontic group practice, Kidz Dental Care in April 2018 in Santa Clarita, CA and the practice is well-renowned and sought after in the community. Within a few years, the practice has shown exponential growth under her leadership and her growing team of assistants and doctors. Dr. Kanuga is known for her fast, efficient and gentle patient care to the point that the anesthesiologists that work with her call her one of the fastest pediatric dentists in the state of California in terms of restorative dental treatment. She also manages and owns another practice in Porter Ranch, CA. With her exceptional patient management skills and gentle demeanor, children and parents love coming to Dr. Kanuga for their regular dental exam and treatment.
