The Hero Pediatric Dentistry Story

Patient with our pediatric dentist in Gainesville.

Parents often think that pediatric dentistry isn’t important since baby teeth will eventually fall out. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Your child’s baby teeth serve as placeholders for their adult teeth, and maintaining good oral health during this time is crucial for ensuring strong and healthy adult teeth.

Not only does keeping your child’s baby teeth healthy protect their future smiles, it helps them in the present! Just because baby teeth are supposed to fall out, doesn’t mean they’re not just as impacted by things like tooth pain. Poorly cared-for baby teeth can, in some cases, require extraction to allow the adult teeth to come in appropriately.

Your infant’s dental health is just as important as their overall health. That’s why at Hero Pediatric Dentistry in Gainesville, we believe in early and proactive dental care for infants. Whether your little one needs a dental cleaning and an over growth analysis, we’re here to provide comprehensive and compassionate pediatric dentistry services. So, if your child has teeth, it’s time to introduce them to Hero Pediatric Dentistry!

Let us be your family’s partner in strong, healthy teeth for life.

The Hero Pediatric Dentistry Story

Hero Pediatric Dentistry in Northern Virginia was founded by two brothers, an orthodontist and a general dentist, who shared a deep passion for dentistry. When the opportunity arose for them to take on a new practice, first founded by Dr. Lezley Mcilveen, they jumped at the chance to bring their shared vision of dentistry to life.

Between our leading dental providers Dr. Tamer and Sherif Elhady, they have 8 children—in opening a pediatric practice, it helped fulfill their desire to provide a patient-centered practice that offered exceptional dental care to children of all ages.
