Catherine Guerrero, DMD, became a pediatric dentist so she could make sure that every child who walks through the doors of Dr. Cat & the Tooth Pediatric Dental Office feels welcomed and comfortable. She’s committed to giving each child the best dental care and the best time possible while at her office in Woodland Hills, California.
Dr. Cat — as she’s fondly known by her patients — wasn’t always a dentist. She spent several years working for the United States Secret Service and in the computer industry. All that changed when her son had a bad experience at the dentist. Recognizing the need for warm, caring dental care for kids, Dr. Cat decided to change careers.
She went to dental school at A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona, earning her certificate in public health simultaneously. Afterward, she completed her residency at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Tucson, AZ. Today, she is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the California Dental Association, and the California Society of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Cat knows that each patient and their parents can only make the right decision for their individual smile when they have all the relevant information. Not only does she strive to educate her patients, but she also keeps herself educated. Dr. Cat stays on top of the latest dental innovations so she can use the best tools and treatments for her patients. Whether she’s helping children understand their teeth or offering specialized orthodontic care, Dr. Cat layers a warm, fun approach over everything she does.
When she’s not enjoying time with her patients, you can find Dr. Cat at the beach or watching a play or movie with her husband and two teenagers.
