About VK Pediatric Dentistry
Voted Top Pediatric Dentist by Arlington Magazine, Washingtonian, Washington Parent, Northern Virginia Magazine and More!
VK Pediatric Dentistry specializes in one thing: setting the bar for the highest possible standard of pediatric dental care in Northern Virginia and DC.
Our strength comes from working together as a team with the families who entrust their children to us. We listen to our patients and parents concerns and place a large emphasis on mutual respect, integrity, timeliness, and education that is both engaging and easy to understand. We understand that every child is unique, especially in a dental setting, and we adapt to every patient and their needs with our innovative approaches. We pride ourselves on having a conservative treatment philosophy and truly having your child's best interest in mind.
Establishing a relationship with you and your children from their first tooth (infant) to their adult teeth (teens), allows us to provide dental care and shape your child's attitudes about their oral health for the rest of their life. We fully endorse the AAPD's concept of bringing a child to a pediatric dentist by their first birthday (age 1) and start seeing children as early as 12 months or their first tooth, whichever is sooner.
We aim to provide you with the education relevant to your child's age, a place to ask oral health questions, and a place you can rely on for urgent or emergency care. Having a pediatric dentist established may reduce the amount of dental treatment your child will need in the future. According to the CDC, more than 40% of children will have a cavity before they reach kindergarten, and dental cavities can start in children as early as 15 months. Your child's visit to the pediatric dentist should be a pleasant experience that will positively influence their attitude about their future oral health care.
