Meet Our Dentists and Orthodontists
Welcome to Main Street Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics of Perring Parkway in Baltimore, MD
At Main Street Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics of Perring Parkway, it’s our privilege to serve children in the Baltimore area. We specialize in treating kids ranging in age from six months old to 17, as well as children with special needs. Don’t worry, if you’re bringing an infant to visit us, you can hold them during the dental exam. And, when you schedule an appointment for one child, we can also arrange for siblings to see a dentist during the same visit.
You’ll find us conveniently located at 8831 Satyr Hill Road in Baltimore, in the brick building behind Jerry’s Chevrolet. For those who rely on public transportation, you can take the BaltimoreLink #53 bus, which stops near our office.
When Should My Child Visit the Dentist for the First Time?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children see a dentist by their first birthday, since once a child gets one baby tooth, they can get a cavity. Our dentists will show you how to clean your infant’s teeth and keep them cavity-free. Even though baby teeth are not permanent, you don’t want your child to get cavities in them. Untreated decay can grow, causing your child pain, and the tooth could become infected.
We’ve found that children who see a pediatric dentist routinely from an early age are generally not afraid of dental visits. They view going to the dentist like visiting friends who offer fun games to play and give out prizes. By creating a warm and child-friendly atmosphere, our goal is to have our patients tell their parents that they can’t wait to come back for their next checkup.
What Makes Us Unique?
Main Street Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics of Perring Parkway treats children exclusively, so our dental office is designed specifically for young patients. It’s colorful and welcoming, with games, toys and televisions, just like the ideal playroom. Our mission is to make dental visits fun for children and stress-free for their parents or caregivers, and our doctors and staff treat everyone like family.
Our highly experienced team knows how to make children feel comfortable. We don’t rush them; everyone takes time to explain what will happen and why. Our pediatric dentists always use age-appropriate language. For example, if we need to give nitrous oxide to a child (so they won’t realize how long a procedure takes), our dentists call it laughing gas because nitrous oxide can sound scary to kids.
In addition to providing exceptional dental and orthodontic care to our patients, we support local mission groups that visit underprivileged children and families in different areas and countries. We also participate in the Ronald McDonald House Charity Event. It’s always been our privilege to give to those in need.

Emergency Pediatric Dentist in Baltimore
If your child breaks a tooth in a fall or is complaining of a severe toothache, please call us at (410) 713-4542. We can often schedule same-day appointments and will do our best to get your child in as quickly as possible. If we can’t accommodate the emergency, we’ll call the next closest Main Street location to inquire about the availability of emergency appointment times there.
Special Needs Dentistry
Our compassionate pediatric dentists have expertise in treating children with special needs. They use sedation when necessary to make the experience stress-free for your child, and will create a personalized treatment plan to meet your child’s unique needs.
Orthodontics in Baltimore
We suggest that our pediatric patients have an orthodontic assessment around the age of seven. Orthodontists can spot any potential problems with teeth or jaw growth and begin treatment early in some cases to minimize the length and degree of treatment needed in the future. Our experienced in-house orthodontists offer a variety of orthodontic treatments, making it easier on children if they need braces, a retainer or Invisalign, since they can be treated at the same dental office they already visit regularly.
Affordable Children’s Dental Care
We understand that cost is a concern for many parents and caregivers, especially when it comes to emergency care or braces. We accept many major dental insurance plans and our knowledgeable office staff will gladly help you with the details of your coverage. We accept major credit cards and can help you apply for the CareCredit healthcare credit card. We also accept the DentRite® discount dental plan. It offers significant savings on common procedures.
Call our pediatric dental office at (410) 713-4542 to schedule an appointment for your child with a dentist or to consult with our orthodontist. We look forward to meeting you and your child.

We’re making it easier now than ever before to pay your bills online, either through one-time payments or by creating an account.
At The Office
Easter baskets, egg hunts and more! Easter week was hoppin’ at our Perring Parkway office in Baltimore.
Our patients were even treated to a surprise visit and fun giveaways from ‘Sir Floss A Lot’ – our favorite tooth mascot! The Easter Bunny was a bit busy.
