I don't live in the area, so I really can't help. BUT I was browsing the web and came across this site http://www.wcmidentistry.com/index.php?ID=33147&
called "Minimally Invasive Dentistry" with a whole bunch of dentists who practice this and there are quite a number in CA; OR do what I did with my 4 yr old DS and take your children to a "family" dentist.

My DS was terrified of the 'pediatric' dentists and justly so, but he went right in for the family dentist and got his little dead tooth pulled and his 1 cavity filled. No problem.

I love my new holistic dentist Dr. Vernon Erwin located in Glendale, CA. Here is his web site: www.drerwin.com. He's really like a naturopath and goes beyond just dentistry. My old holistic dentist Lucy Picone in Redondo Beach went out of business so I switched to Dr. Erwin and I am very happy. Now, I haven't yet brought my 17 month old for a check-up, but I'm hoping to in the future.

My friend child is of one year and she gets proper care of his teeth from the first day when the first tooth starts to grow. She brushes his teeth with soft toothbrush. She also visits dentist manhattan beach to get more useful for the proper care of his teeth.
