Only 20 more Saturdays in 2023
Book your Family's Weekend Dental Appointments Now

Hard to take off work during the week - and don't like the kids missing school? If you're struggling to find the time to get the entire family to the dentist Monday through Friday, find a dental practice with Saturday appointments.
"Our Saturday appointments are incredibly popular," says Becky Short, manager of
Dr. Marvin Tong's family dental practice in Valencia. "Parents bring all their kids in at once and often make themselves an appointment at the same time. We've got your favorite Disney movie playing on our TV and a team that's committed to giving gentle, joyful service that makes everyone smile."
Saturday appointments book fast. If you want one this year, call now.
Dr. Marvin Tong, DDS 268-6284

"I moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to pursue my career in film and television. I self-submitted via snail mail, trying fruitlessly to acquire an agent, manager and auditions. As many know, paying bills and maintaining a regular steady income became priority, so my acting career took a back seat. After getting married and having kids, I once again found myself in a position to pursue my acting desires.
I found SCSOPA and signed up for unlimited classes in 2017. Within three months, my son and I had signed with an agent. To me, this was worth every penny. My son Logan and I have both been on Fox television. Logan has also been in a Disney commercial, featured in student films and most recently he has been cast in multiple Dhar Mann YouTube videos - a channel with over 18 million subscribers. As many actors know, it's not like riding a bike, acting is like going to the gym. You must continually use your acting muscles to keep the creativity and confidence flowing. If you aren't on set, you should be in acting class. The unlimited option was well worth the investment. I have also acquired life-long acting friends through the school and we have been creating our own content to add to our reels. I cannot count the many ways SCSOPA has fed my acting career and brought joy to my life. None of this would have been possible without SCSOPA."
