Referring a child to Dr. Michelle Kucera
“We partner with you in giving children the finest care.”
Professionals are the eyes and ears for children.
Whether you are a Pediatrician, General Practitioner, School Nurse, Teacher, or a Day Care Provider, you are often the person who first notices the need for kids to see the dentist.
You may notice that a child may not be able to focus on her schoolwork, she may fall and break a tooth, or have other trauma which involves the mouth or jaw.
Why Caring Tree?
Dr. K is a consummate professional in her field of Pediatric Dentistry. A Pediatric Dental Specialist focuses solely on children, and their unique dental needs.
Our team has been chosen not only for their expertise in the field of Pediatric Dentistry, but for their innate ability to communicate clearly and compassionately with children and their parents. They have the training to address all challenges that come with a child’s individual needs and are wonderful at making children and their parents comfortable.
As a Pediatric Dental Specialist, Dr. K has undergone a rigorous two year course in addition to the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She is Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and is on staff at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

- Behavior Management and Communication with Children

- Hospital Dentistry Specific to Children’s Needs
- Growth and Development in Children
- Craniofacial Anomalies and Birth Defects
