Something to Smile About

Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry is building community, one family at a time.
By Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry

Anyone who has navigated finding and scheduling dental appointments for their family knows that it can be one huge headache. Not so at Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry. Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry offers complimentary exams for children 12 months old and younger. (It is recommended a child have a first exam around six months.) And to make sure scheduling appointments is as easy as possible, the office can schedule via text, by phone, or online, options any busy parent or caregiver will appreciate.

At Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry, a child’s dental needs are explained in a clear and respectful way to adults in an atmosphere that is fun and not intimidating for children. Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry is owned and operated by Dr. Chani Simhi, D.D.S., who is a mother of four and thus knows a thing or two about making children and parents comfortable at the dentist! Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry wants all families to be able to afford the best dental care possible, so in addition to working with major insurance providers (and offering a free benefits check to see what insurance will cover), it offers a membership plan for those without insurance.

Among her four children is Dr. Simhi’s son, Daniel, who has a complex neurological condition. This gives her a unique perspective not only on the experience of getting children into the dentist and maintaining their dental health, but also the specific issues parents of children with special needs face. The office is guided by the principles of respect, integrity, and trust, ensuring that all patients receive the best care in a positive environment.

As a local business owner and a mom to a child with special needs, Dr. Simhi believes in supporting other local businesses and organizations that benefit kids. Through her son, Dr. Simhi connected with Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI) and the incredible work they do to empower young people. In an interview with KKI, Dr. Simhi said: “It takes so many people from such a wide range of fields to make [my son] who he is. Lots of people have had such a great impact.”

Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry wants to be part of that community of people having a positive impact. Although the office helps children every day by giving them healthy, confident smiles, it wanted to do more. So for every encounter, Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry donates to KKI. Through this partnership, Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry has helped KKI purchase specific medical equipment and therapeutic toys needed for the children they treat.

Nothing makes a child more comfortable than going to a place that’s familiar to them, which makes the upcoming open house at Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry a must-do for families. The practice’s open house on May 1, 2024, is the perfect chance to meet Dr. Simhi and her team, tour the office, and learn more about their aspiration to improve the community through dental health and more. Baltimore Pediatric Dentistry is conveniently located in Pikesville just off Reisterstown Road and the Baltimore Beltway.
