  • Thank you for the recognition of my contributions in advancing the field of Pediatric Dentistry. My practice philosophy implements the science behind dental therapies to provide the most conservative and predicable outcomes—all while having fun! Recently, systemic health as a continuum of oral health has received tremendous attention and I am a participant in this trajectory. We are currently at the forefront of advanced cavity management via Silver diamine fluoride (SDF), the Hall Technique, all-white zirconia crowns and lesion sterilization and tissue repair (LSRT). SDF has helped numerous children with cavities by hindering the growth rate, lending to deferred treatment. The Hall Technique allows for a passive fitting of a silver crown by creating space with elastics—how fantastic for children who may not tolerate procedures. Zirconia crowns are a more durable and beautiful alternative to silver crowns! LSRT preserves a dying baby tooth with its partial nerve removal, followed by triple antibiotic putty and full coverage. Of recent attention is the MTHFR mutation, in which traditional treatment approaches in dentistry are modified, making it critical to understand non-invasive treatment alternatives. Dental malocclusions, breathing patterns and tethered tissue management are as critical to your child’s oral health as the management of cavities. The collaboration of myofunctional therapists and pediatric dentists in the release and re-training of facial muscle groups allows for optimal nursing latch and the correction of malocclusions and breathing patterns. In the new year I will provide laser frenectomy releases! Come experience the magic behind Chevy Chase Pediatric Dentistry!

  • At DC Pediatric Smiles our motto is simple: Laugh. Grow. Smile. Step into our office and you’ll be immersed in the bright, clean, beach house vibe of coastal California. Kids love our fun, upbeat approach to pediatric dentistry. Parents appreciate our strict safety precautions including curbside check-in, staggered scheduling, and contactless reception. As a father of three young kids, I understand the importance of connecting with all my patients to ensure their first impression of the dentist is positive. Coming into the dental setting understandably can be intimidating and scary for kids (and parents too). Our team is talented at easing any fear through their laidback, calm and confident approach to care. That’s how we’ve been crushing sugar bugs since 2017. I founded DC Pediatric Smiles on the principles of celebrating diversity and service to the greater community. In particular, patients with autism and children with unique medical needs find a comforting home at DC Pediatric Smiles. We are so fortunate to be located in such a dynamic, diverse region of the country. Our team strives to provide fun, kid-friendly dentistry in a positive setting to all families to build healthy, happy smiles for a lifetime.

  • Dr. Roya Pilcher committed to providing the most up to date techniques and advanced technology for her patients. She annually attends continuing education courses, allowing her to stay at the forefront of her specialty. She also offers digital radiography, which reduces your child’s x-ray exposure by 80% when compared to conventional x-rays. In addition to helping the families in her own practice, Dr. Pilcher believes that it is important to give back to her community in DC. To that end, she donates her time and skills to many area charities, as well as established a foundation with her husband that focuses on the needs of premature infants and their caregivers. Dr. Pilcher’s practice is environmentally conscious and makes every effort to keep waste to a minimum, to recycle as much as possible and to purchase products from as many environmentally conscious sources as possible. They are always looking for new ways to reduce their carbon footprint and welcome suggestions from patients. The most important thing to know about Dr. Pilcher is her overall philosophy. She believes each child has different needs, and she takes this into account when approaching them. Her ultimate goal is to teach children to become lifelong dentally aware patients. The road to that achievement will be different with every child. Awards & Professional Memberships Bethesda Magazine 2020 Top Dentist Past President of the D.C.
