At Merrifield Pediatric Dentistry we believe every child is unique. We tailor custom treatment plans for each child. We strive to take a personalized boutique-style approach to children’s dentistry by adopting minimally invasive techniques and bioactive and BPA free materials whenever possible.

Merrifield Pediatric Dentistry is a woman-owned local small business that started out based on Dr. Ghatak’s experience as a dentist and mother. Dr. Ghatak has personally lived the challenges that most parents face in providing the best for their children given the limitations of modern life. She understands that each child is unique and likewise each parent has different preferences. This has led to her vision of a pediatric dental practice where every child’s treatment is customized to them.

Top Rated Pediatric Dentistry Services

Here are some of the services that we offer at our top rated practice.

  • Cleanings. Regular checkups and teeth cleanings are essential for keeping your child’s mouth healthy as they grow, and for the early detection of any potential problems. At Merrifield Pediatric Dentistry, our team will make your child’s visits fun and educational!
  • Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF). Now approved in the U.S., this is a safer form of fluoride that we use because it’s shown positive results in very young patients all around the world. SDF is a proven, safe and non-invasive way to stop cavities from progressing in your child’s mouth.
  • Stainless Steel Crowns. In certain situations, like after a pulpotomy for nerve damage, Dr. Ghatak may recommend a stainless steel crown to repair a damaged tooth’s surface instead of a filling. Stainless steel crowns are approved for use in children by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).
  • Bonding. This involves adding some tooth-colored filling material to a tooth that is underdeveloped, or a tooth that has experienced trauma, to restore its intended esthetics and function.
  • Habit Counseling. Most kids outgrow habits like thumb-sucking and pacifier use on their own, but when those habits persist they can negatively affect a child’s normal teeth and jaw development. We provide habit counseling support to parents, which may include a mouth appliance in certain situations.
  • Laughing Gas. One of the safe and reliable sedation methods we use in our office to relax non-cooperative children is laughing gas, or nitrous oxide. The child remains awake the entire time, and all laughing gas is totally eliminated from their body before heading home.
