Our 4-year old daughter likes going to this dentist so much she excitedly flips through the calendar to find the next appointment like looking for a birthday or celebration! The whole team does such an excellent job from check in to check out. We highly recommend!

Kids Love Our Beach

From movies on the ceiling during treatment to the wide array of sunglasses to choose from, kids love our little beach in Bethesda.

We work hard to make sure kids love their time with us. That’s why we’ve carefully crafted a bright, welcoming and fun environment that will keep children looking forward to their next visit.


The more your child loves the dentist, the more committed they’ll be to developing lifelong oral health habits. That’s the end goal – helping your child grow their best smile for life.


During your child's first visit, they'll receive a gentle cleaning and coaching on how to brush their teeth at home.  We'll share our findings and answer any questions parents may have.  You can expect honesty and transparency.  To help parents and children, we also design a special oral health plan for each child that includes lots of encouragement and motivational tips for eating right and maintaining a healthy smile!

and Financial info

At DC Pediatric Smiles, we accept several PPO insurances as accessibility to exceptional care is our priority.

Dental insurance can be a helpful way to offset the cost of dental treatment for some families. Currently, we work “in-network” with many of the following plans listed below:

  • Cigna
  • GEHA
  • Guardian
  • United Healthcare

Additionally, we continue working with many other PPO insurance plans considered “out-of-network” with many other PPO insurance plans (such as Aetna, CareFirst, Delta, MetLife, and United Concordia).

As a courtesy, you can count on our team to file insurance paperwork for you to ensure that your benefits are maximized and your experience is hassle-free.  We encourage families to aid our team when utilizing insurance by being familiar with the benefits of their specific policy, and to leave the tricky stuff to us!

It is important to note that each individual plan has its not unique benefits and limitations. Please email Shae, our New Patient Coordinator, for additional Information:

No insurance
No problem.

We are proud to keep our services affordable and even offer financing options to make comprehensive dental care attainable.  More importantly, we want you and your children to feel comfortable at our office and excited to be part of the DCPS family.

The team at DC Pediatric Smiles is committed to providing the best possible care to all of our patients.  By discussing various treatment approaches and encouraging you to select the most appropriate plan for your family, we hope to have the opportunity to earn your long-term trust.
