Low-cost Orthodontic Services
The CHC Dental Department is offering affordable orthodontia services to children and adults through its local dental clinic in Nipomo.

and the first Saturday of the month.

Dr. Lotwala, DDS, MSD is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, having graduated from University of California, Berkeley, the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, and most recently the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Department of Orthodontics. Dr. Lotwala practiced dentistry with CHC for two years prior to receiving his orthodontia training, and has returned to serve those in our community most in need.
Orthodontic care involves the use of devices, such as braces, to straighten teeth, correct problems with bite, close gaps between teeth and to align teeth properly. In young children, orthodontic treatment may guide proper jaw growth. This can help permanent teeth to come in properly. Straight permanent teeth can help prevent tooth and jaw-related problems later on.
Having an improved smile not only has health benefits, but can make all the difference for a child's or an adult's self-esteem. CHC is committed to making it as easy and affordable as possible for our patients to get quality orthodontic care.
Since orthodontia services are rarely covered under most insurance plans, CHC will offer affordable monthly payment options. New and existing CHC patients will be able to apply for the CareCredit™ Healthcare finance plan. CareCredit™ is a personal line of credit for dental treatments. It is a no-interest credit card that can only be used for healthcare services.
CHC currently operates five dental clinics in two counties: Lompoc, Santa Maria (2), Nipomo and Templeton.
