Dental Care Philosophy
A twinkle in children’s eyes when they are able to have a pleasant and comfortable dental checkup (they are often surprised) – the sense of accomplishment and confidence evident on their face as they give me a hug or a high five at the end of their dental visit is priceless! This is possible only by use of gentle behavior guidance.
I get to work with the most tender of the patients, many of whom really need specialized help. No matter what the dental needs of a child are, they can be accomplished with kindness, patience and dedication.
Dr. Rishita is on staff to perform surgeries at Children’s Hospital in DC for her patients with most challenging special needs that require hospital based care.
Before the end of every appointment, I like to ensure that I have answered any questions that children or parents may have. Quality dental care coupled with prevention and effective patient education is the recipe for a lifetime of happy, healthy and beautiful smiles.
As you know, with any doctors office... forms are a part of life! We have tried to make this process smoother for you and your children by making our forms available online so that you can fill them out in the comfort of your home.
