Great With Kids

Great experience! The team was very gentle and patient with my kids. My kids usually give dentists a hard time, but Dr. JC was engaging and put them at ease, making our visit very enjoyable.

He answered all my questions and went into detail about my kids’ teeth. I would highly recommend Ivy City Pediatric Dentistry.
