Our Mission

Diversity and Service

DC Pediatric Smiles is a new pediatric dental office located in Bethesda, Maryland, that opened in July 2017.  The practice was founded on the principles of celebrating diversity and service to the greater community. 

Some pediatric dental offices have focused on specific segments of the population and unintentionally have made it a challenge for certain families to have access to oral healthcare.  DC Pediatric Smiles is different.  Regardless of background, socioeconomic status, or a family’s address, the team at DC Pediatric Smiles strives to provide fun, kid-friendly dentistry in a positive setting to build healthy, happy smiles for a lifetime.


Community Engagement

Involvement in the greater DC community is truly at the core of DC Pediatric Smiles.  It is with great intention that the practice name speaks on a broad scale to any family in need of quality children’s dental care in the greater metropolitan DC area.  Dr. Blank became a pediatric dentist to help others.  One direct example of this engagement includes participating in community sponsored health fairs, school activities, and charity events throughout the region, including Kensington, Silver Spring, Prince George’s County, and Washington, DC. 



DC Pediatric Smiles strives to be accessible to all.  This inclusive culture and sense of purpose for the greater community have helped shape the practice’s mission.  In the end, the goal is to establish a mutually beneficial partnership between DC Pediatric Smiles and the surrounding region to allow for an enhanced oral healthcare experience for all children.
