Your child's dentist should be

Your Rockville Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Bana Ball provides honest, genuine dental care with an individualized approach for every child. At Shady Grove Pediatric Dentistry, we don’t just treat symptoms, we work with you to resolve the causes of dental issues and create good habits that will last a lifetime.

For more serious problems, we can also provide sedation dentistry in a hospital setting.

Meet Dr. Bana Ball

Dr. Bana Ball is more than a board-certified pediatric dentist. She is a mother of two young children, so she has first-hand experience of what life with little ones is like. She knows that your child is your world, and she understands the joys and challenges of being a parent. Through her practice, she always treats her patients the way she treats her own children. She lives and practices by “The Golden Rule.”

Dr. Ball always had the dream of opening her own practice so she could operate according to her own personal dental care philosophy. She values providing truly customized treatment options that fit the needs of each individual child and family. She practiced this way for nearly a decade while living in Baltimore, but this all changed when the private practice where she worked was sold to a dental management company, and the corporate ownership model took over. The impersonal practice style that followed was the reason Dr. Ball decided to build her own dental office. She chose Rockville because she and her husband realized this is where they wanted to raise their children. By founding Shady Grove Pediatric Dentistry, she is able to create custom treatment plans for every patient and carry them out with continuity of care. Because she will see every child every time, Dr. Ball can create real relationships and personally serve the community she and her family now call home.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist by the time they turn one year old, or within 6 months of whenever their first tooth grows in. Seeing a pediatric dentist early lets us track your child’s oral health effectively, and ensures that you can be fully informed during the very important early childhood years.

She was also able to accommodate them for extra time in order to complete the work that needed to be done without me having to drive back for another appointment. I do appreciate it when people are able to be friendly and professional at the same time. Thank you Dr. Bana Ball!"

I can’t stop raving about our amazing experience at Shady Grove Pediatric Dentistry! Dr. Ball and her staff are outstanding. Her office is top notch and absolutely beautiful - so new and clean. It was an amazing experience for my 5 and 6 year old from start to finish. They both left happy, with beautiful smiles and a fantastic little goody bag! I highly recommend Dr. Ball for the pediatric needs of your family too

Dr. Ball and the staff at Shady Grove Pediatric Dentistry are head and shoulders above the rest. The attention to detail and fun atmosphere from the second we walked in the door makes for what my daughter called a “play date where you get your teeth cleaned”. I highly recommend this practice and will be coming back every six months with my children. Smiles beget smiles!

"Dr. Ball is AMAZING with her patients as well as with the parents. She explains everything she is doing and she makes sure that each parent is knowledgeable of what needs to be done DAILY in preventing any issues. The staff from the time you walk in the door to leaving is PHENOMENAL. I would recommend Dr. Ball to ANYONE looking to enjoy QUALITY patient care."
