We love serving the children of Rockville and helping them achieve healthy smiles. Our goal is to help them build habits that will keep their teeth and gums healthy for life. Whether that means essential dentistry through regular check-up and cleaning appointments, treating broken or decayed teeth with fillings or crowns, removing teeth for the tooth fairy, or offering a holistic approach to proper growth and development of the jaws and airway via the HealthyStart system, we’ve got your kids’ oral health care needs covered.
We look forward to being your children’s partners in the path towards lifelong dental health. Check this map if you need directions to our practice.
If your child has had dental trauma, and if you are unsure whether your child’s situation is considered a dental emergency, do not hesitate to contact us. A knocked-out baby tooth isn’t usually an emergency, but there could be other damage that is not as obvious. When you call our office, we will triage the problem quickly over the phone to determine the gravity of the problem and then bring you and your child to our office promptly according to their emergency needs.
If your kids love the outdoors and animals, Meadowside Nature Center is a great place to visit. There are hiking trails to exercise out some of that boundless energy, a themed outdoor play area, an indoor crawl-through cave, more indoor play areas, and a variety of animal species to see and learn about. You’ll see beautiful birds of prey in the raptor area, many small, colorful birds, and different types of reptiles in the indoor exhibit.
Another fun thing for the whole family to do in Rockville is...rock climbing! Earth Treks is right next to Richard Montgomery High School and is the perfect place to enjoy some family fun. You could all climb together, or you could take advantage of Kids’ Climb Time for ages 6-12 or their after school programs (separate programs for ages 6-8, 9-12, and 13-17). They’re much less likely to get a tooth injury climbing with the careful supervision of qualified instructors than they would be climbing a tree in the backyard!
Rockville, settled in 1717 and founded in 1803, has grown to be one of the largest communities in Maryland. It gets its name from Rock Creek, a tributary of the Potomac that runs through the town, and today the population is over 67,000.
Six prehistoric sites have been uncovered and documented in Rockville that date back to as early as 8,000 B.C., as the area was an excellent refuge for semi-nomadic Native Americans for thousands of years until some eventually settled into year-round agricultural communities. The Confederate army occupied Rockville during the Civil War on their way to Gettysberg, and they carried off the town’s records in the confusion of their retreat.
