Our Community and Office News

VK Pediatric Dentistry in Arlington, VA

Dr. Peter and the team at VK Pediatric Dentistry understand the importance of giving back to the local community of Arlington, VA and the surrounding cities of McLean, Falls Church, Alexandria, DC and Northern Virginia! We understand that as a pediatric dentist we may be fixing cavities and creating smiles in our office but we also support our young patients outside of the office.  Whether it's visiting your child's local Arlington school to teach the importance of brushing and flossing, cheering the family on at Arlington Soccer Games or contributing to the numerous PTAs, charities and local groups, we want to do everything we can to help our local community and neighbors in Northern Virginia and DC.

If your school, team, classroom or business has an idea for community outreach and VK Pediatric Dentistry can help, please email us at
