Where Smiles Grow was originally Capital District Pediatric Dentistry, and since the opening of our first office in 1979, we’ve been dedicated to helping kids achieve healthy smiles for life. Our dentists have over 90 years of combined dental experience! Our entire staff complete CPR/BLS and OSHA certifications every year, and our dentists have advanced training with certificates ACLS, PALS, and all aspects of clinical dentistry. We’ve been happy to serve the Capital Region community for over 40 years.

We are proud winners of the 2021 Times-Union’s “Best of the Capital Region” award for Best Dentist! Our pediatric dentists are also proud recipients of the Outstanding Providers Award from the Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region. We have a passion for providing the highest quality dental care to our special needs patients. Children with special needs sometimes benefit from a dental experience that’s tailored to them, and you’ll find that with our pediatric dentists at Where Smiles Grow!

We are also part of the Albany Medical Center Cleft & Craniofacial Team, which is the only accredited craniofacial team in the region. Each member of our team has multiple years of experience in treating children with compassion and providing them with dental care that meets their unique needs.
