Sonrava Health is Advancing Whole-Person Health for Patients from All Backgrounds

Proponents of Medical Dental Integration (MDI) persist in conveying the significance of fostering coordination and collaboration among diverse healthcare disciplines. They aim is to enhance the delivery of comprehensive and holistic patient care. Some organizations are beginning to heed the call.

Western Dental & Orthodontics, a member of the Sonrava Health family of wellness companies, is taking some steps towards whole-person health with the announcement of the opening of its Reseda dental office. The office will be co-located with a LooksBrite Eye Center, which will open soon. The new facility expands access to care with two critical windows to overall health – vision and dental services – in one convenient location for the whole family.

Sonrava Health, based in Texas, is a national family of health and wellness companies – including differentiated dental office brands with nearly 540 affiliated offices, dental and vision benefit plans, provider networks, and consumer products and services. A geographically diverse, multi-specialty organization with a unique mix of providers and payors, Sonrava Health is comprised of several companies – including Western Dental & Orthodontics, Western Dental Kids, Brident Dental & Orthodontics, LooksBrite Optometry Centers, Vital Smiles, DentalWorks, and Perfect Teeth

Dr. Zhi Meng is the President and chief dental officer of Sonrava Health Dental Group. She is responsible for clinical operations support for general dentistry, orthodontics, and all dental specialties, including pediatric dentistry.

Founded 120 years ago with the purpose of making high-quality oral healthcare accessible to all and focused on wellness and prevention, Western Dental, with its supported affiliates, offers access to and equity of oral healthcare in nearly 260 offices across California, Arizona, and Nevada. As a full-service “dental home,” Western Dental provides general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, implants, and oral surgery in offices that meet the needs of a diverse patient population.

As one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare and the leading orthodontics provider in the country, Western Dental accepts uninsured and privately insured patients, in addition to patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal) in nearly 250 California offices.

Established in 2022, LooksBrite Eye Center offers vision care to the Southern California community. LooksBrite Eye Center is equipped with the newest technology to help prevent, diagnose, and treat a wide array of conditions for adults and children. With convenient appointment times and a bilingual staff, LooksBrite Eye Center caters to patients of all backgrounds.

The new 6,192-square-foot office includes 14 treatment rooms. It offers comprehensive dental care—including general and pediatric dentistry, oral hygiene, orthodontics, dental implants, and oral surgery—creating a convenient, full-service “dental home” for patients. The office will share the space with a LooksBrite Eye Center.

“By combining vision and dental care in a single location, we’re providing a holistic care solution for patients in the community,” says Dr. Peter Truong, Regional President. “Patients can reduce visits to meet multiple health needs in one central location.”

As organizations increasingly embrace this integrative approach, the potential for enhanced patient care, improved health outcomes, and a more holistic understanding of well-being will lead to transformative advancements in the healthcare landscape, fostering a paradigm shift towards more patient-centered, comprehensive, and sustainable healthcare practices.
