The History of our Pediatric Dental Office
Our pediatric dental office was originally started in the 1950s by Dr. Arthur Dugoni - the same Arthur Dugoni whom the University of Pacific Dental school recently named their school after! In 1960, Dr. Charles Bona took over when Dr. Dugoni went to graduate school in orthodontics.
Dr. Bona took exceptional care of his patients for over 40 years. The success of his practice was a testament to his gentle and caring approach to the children of our area. Dr. Bona met Dr. Kenny in 2003 and they instantly felt a connection. They both have similar views on the profession of pediatric dentistry which made the transition for both Dr. Bona and Dr. Kenny very easy. Dr. Bona has since retired and when not out sailing, he can be found on the dog show circuit with his champion Old English Mastiffs. Dr. Kenny and Dr. Bona still have regular lunches and attend numerous continuing education courses together. Dr. Kenny considers Dr. Bona to be his mentor and great friend and is thankful for the opportunity he gave him to practice pediatric dentistry.
