About Our Practice

Our History

Founded by Dr. Ronald Darden in 1972, the practice has been taking care of families in the Glendora area for over 40 years. We are now treating grandchildren of Dr. Ron’s original patients, which speaks to the quality of care we provide long term. In 2001, Dr. Ron’s son, Dr. Bryce, joined the practice.

In 2010, Dr. Bryce Darden became the primary dentist, bringing with him a number of surgical procedures and innovative techniques to an already comprehensive practice. Darden DDS continues at the forefront of dental technology and methodology, and has made it his mission to continue the long-term goal of offering the highest quality care in a friendly and family atmosphere.

What to expect when you visit

Our office is professional, yet relaxed and comfortable. We understand that going to the dentist can be intimidating, (especially if it’s been a while), so we do our best to make you feel at home. With each exam, we will explore each tooth, explain which treatments (if any) are needed and present all of your options and outcomes. Our goal is aesthetics, restoration and prevention; we will never sell you on unnecessary services.

About Dr. Bryce Darden

Bryce M. Darden D.D.S. was born and raised in nearby La Verne, CA. He joined Darden D.D.S. in 2001 and has been as incredible asset to our family-centered practice ever since.

Dr. Darden has a passion for restoring smiles using the latest technology and techniques. Even though his hours significantly exceed that required of the Dental Board of California, he continually seeks out higher education and training courses to continue to learn and grow in order to offer the highest level of care possible to his parents.

We are happy to work with your carrier and will assist you in maximizing your benefits. We do not have all of the policy information pertaining to your insurance carrier but will preauthorize if you desire. Any remaining balances after insurance payments are the responsibility of the patient.

Patients Paying out of Pocket
