We travel from Baltimore bc we love this practice. We started coming here during a very difficult time when my son needed a lot of dental work and Dr. Grant quite literally made it all better. She fixed my son's teeth and the practice has been taking excellent care of him ever since. The hygienist Vicki is also amazing!

My son looks forward to going to the dentist every time, and talks about it for days after his appointments. It is truly a special treat for him. The whole team has created a wonderful environment.

My 2yo just had his first visit to the dentist ever at Children's Choice. He had a great time and came home saying he likes the dentist! Everyone was great, from the front desk folks to the doctor and the hygienist. They clearly know how to deal with young children and could easily put him at ease. The hygienist was singing songs the whole time and he was totally distracted and happy. Strongly recommend it for the young ones! Update: we had our second visit. They are amazing. All the personnel was very positive and professional. They made the whole experience easy and fun. We also had a holistic evaluation of my son's tongue thrusting and bite, and came out with a plan on how to continue evaluating and working on our issues. I love this place!

I really love this pediatric dentist. They make you feel so welcome as soon as you walk through the door. Ms. Vicki (??) did an excellent job doing my son's flouride treatment today. We're looking forward to our cleaning in a couple of months.

Amazing! Our two year old who doesn't allow us near his teeth smiled all throughout the visit and loved playing with the tooth monster while in the seat! Follows up by a visit four months later with a way more aware cautions toddler - amazing! Doctor was so positive and was able to distract him to clean his teeth.

I am so happy I found Children's choice for my five-year-old son. Since our first appointment, I have been highly impressed. The staff is always warm and welcoming, which puts my son at ease and makes him feel comfortable during his visits. I love that they allow the parents to sit with their children in case they need reassurance while getting their teeth cleaned. Ms. Jo is AMAZING; she has a beautiful voice and always sings or comforts my son if he is a little uneasy, and I looovvvee Dr. Anamelechi! Dr. Anamelrchi is kind, attentive, and funny. This amazing doctor is a true visionary and is completely changing the game for children's dentistry. Thank you all for a great experience every time.

Children's Choice consistently provides fantastic service and care for my kids. My oldest is a very squirmy/sensitive 5 year old but this team always works magic to get him (calmly) through each visit.

The office is nice and colorful. The front desk employees are very welcoming. They know who's walking in the door on your way in. The dental assistants and hygienist is great. The hygienist explained the importance of good dental hygiene to my son and her recommendations for aftercare. Dr. Anamelechi is always amazing.

We had a tongue and lip tie consult here and then proceeded to get the tongue tie procedure done here with Dr. Anamelechi and we could not be happier. She's gentle, kind and truly wonderful with kids. Our son is just 3 months old and we trusted her with his care. Everyone we have encountered at this dentistry has been such a delight to work with, from the front desk all the way through. We would highly recommend and will continue to bring James here.
