I have a disable daughter that's 11 and we drive 45 mins to visit growing smiles the staff is very nice and they do an amazing job taking care of my little girl not to mention how clean the place is it is well worth the drive
Our first visit was today at the White Marsh location and it was a great experience. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and modern waiting room with kids' play area. The hygienist was very personable and put my son at ease. The dentist was also very nice and took her time and answered all questions. I would recommend Growing Smiles to anyone looking for a good pediatric dentist.
This place is just spectacular 💯 I’ve never saw an dentist place with so much positive energy. I wish I was still an kid I would always come here. Definitely earn the name growing smiles cause I always smile when I walk through those doors.
Before Growing Smiles my daughter had severe anxiety, to the point of being sick, when it came to any dental work being done to her. We were referred here due to our family practice not wanting to cause her any more stress and have never looked back. The staff is so patient and caring and each time we go, they walk her through all the tools being used— in terms a 6 year old can understand, and reassure her that if at any point she needs a break to relax she’s free to take one. I recommend this place to all of my friends!
Everybody is extremely nice. They are very patient with our special needs child. He is actually now cooperating with them.
The Growing Smiles family is doing an awesome job! We travel to BelAir about an hour so our son can see them. Now we're traveling to
White Marsh about 30 minutes. Thanks for opening the White Marsh location.
We absolutely love it here! The entire staff is extremely friendly and super helpful. My 5 year old was extremely nervous to get a cavity filled and was practically in tears walking into the office. Dr. Chris filled his cavity and actually had my son laughing the entire time! He thoroughly explained everything that he was doing and even let me sit in the chair with my son. Seriously could not say enough amazing things about this office! Highly recommend.
Awesome. I've been taking my 15 year old daughter here for 4 years now and soon my 11 month old daughter. Wonderful doctor's and staff. They always have a smile on their faces. And it's so kid friendly. I just took my 15 year old daughter yesterday and my 11 month old baby was having a blast playing on the tablets they have in the waiting room. It surely kept her occupied while her big sis was getting her teeth done. They answer every question you have and explain it so even the child understands so while she's getting checked out she's also learning. It's just a great atmosphere all around. I would definitely recommend family and friends to growing smiles in Bel air. Thank you guys keep up the good work.
We went for the first time today. We were refered to growing smiles from my daughters other dentist. They were really nice and were able to get my daughter to do what she needed to do. She wouldnt want to do those things at her other dentist. So we are switching to growing smiles for all her dental needs.
Love everything about Growing Smiles from the first step into the door to the last have a nice day out the door. My daughter has both High Anxiety with dentists and doctors and also suffers from Asthma. When she was little they didn't accept our insurance (some off life ins policy co.) so we couldn't go to them. We have seen 6 dentists in 4 years from White Marsh to Bel air, who were not willing to work with my daughter. One dentist we saw 3 times for 1 issue and she still said it was nothing. Flash fwd to now they accept our insurance we made an appt, she went to three visits to get the problem spots taken care of AND the girl who hated the dentist now can not wait till her next appt! So thankful for Growing Smiles! They are so wonderful with my daughter! <3
We went in today for a consultation for two cavities, My daughter is 3 1/2 years old. The entire staff was extremely friendly, During my daughters first visit, she was very scared, but as soon as she walked in, the staff welcomed her with a sticker and asked what her favorite color was and promised her a purple balloon after her check up, and showed her where the play area was and showed her the huge selection of children's books she could sort through while we waited. The hygienist and dentist Dr. Adkins were very knowledgeable and answered all my questions without missing a beat. (about side effects of Nitrous Oxide and how will they do this procedure without my daughter getting freaked out about having a mask on and numbing gel, etc., and how to prepare her for it with instructions on what not to eat/drink and how long it would take and how she would act after getting cavities filled.) I didn't feel rushed during our visit. My daughter even connected with Dr. Adkins on a more personal level and chatted about their love of animals and dogs. Our wait was only 10 minutes and anyone who has small children knows that time is precious with a nervous young child. My Daughter Haleigh felt extremely comfortable with the dentist and everyone there, In fact....On the drive home my daughter kept asking when will we go back and see these nice ladies. Our experience was amazing and I highly recommend this particular office. The cherry on top if this experience was Haleigh was given a gold coin after her check up- and she could choose any one of the prizes in a quarter type ,machine like they have in grocery stores. This office makes the children first! and I love that! Thank you to the entire staff for making todays visit smooth and fast for a mom like me. I have a hectic schedule, and an infant along with my other daughter - We don't get many days like this. It was a great start to a great Day!
Recently moved to Maryland and had to find new dentist for my children. From the first visit, the staff has been nice and welcoming. Dr. Amber has been amazing at explaining everything to us and keeping our children comfortable. Would recommend to anyone but especially people who have children who might be fearful of the dentist.
I was so impressed with Growing Smiles! I just took my 2 1/2 year old twins in for their first dental appointment and the staff did a great job of making them feel at ease and giving them lots of distractions. I highly recommend them.
Today my 4 year old daughter had an amazing experience at Growing Smiles. It actually started Wednesday when she was crying that her tooth hurt and we were squeezed in immediately. She met with Dr. Lyman (who she is totally in love with, by the way) and came back a day later to have extensive dental work done by Dr. Diana. Dr. Diana was kind and continuously interacted and distracted her. In addition, she was able to save her tooth. The prize and the balloon on the way out were a plus as well. So happy they are our dentists.
We visited the WM location last week and it was wonderful! Very clean. The front desk staff were very friendly. Dr. Chris spoke directly to my 3 year old. Explained everything he was doing. Even got a few smiles out of him.
Growing smiles is amazing from start to finish! The staff is kind and friendly. Dr. Amber is so incredibly kind and gentle. I am so happy our family found growing smiles for our daughters dental needs! I would highly recommend them. Also, having various locations makes scheduling an appointment even easier!
Love Dr Diana at Growing Smiles.
She is knowledgeable, talented and compassionate. She has been a blessing for years, from seeing our family through the aftermath of severe dental trauma, managing care across other oral surgeons, and working with a prosthetic retainer, to make modifications and get it just right, always within the same day when a need arises, understanding how important a smile is for cosmetic reasons and self esteem.
Took my boys here today they are 3. Everyone was so friendly from the initial call to the dental hygienist and dentist coming in. I will recommend the white marsh to anyone looking for a pediatric dentist.
Dr. Amber and the dentist hygienist are the absolute best! Dr. Amber was gentle with my child. My son needed his front tooth fixed, the time and energy she gave my son was way above what was expected! Eden the hygienist is always helpful , kind and always has a smile on her face!!! I wish I knew everyone’s name , so I can give them a shot out too!!!! Absolutely the greatest place to take your kids !!!!
We love Growing Smiles! The staff is friendly and professional from the time you walk in the door until you're done the appointment. The hygienists are wonderful with kids, always making the experience fun and not scary. Dr Lyman and Dr Diana treat our kids like family, we will never stop going there!!
We love Dr. Lyman, Ms. Jen and all the staff at Growing Smiles. They interact so well with my son. They provide iPads to keep the kids busy while waiting for our appointment. Dr. Lyman sings and if I remeber correctly, speaks Spanish too! Finally, they are also supportive of the arts in our community. They sponsored the Curious George show at Harford Community College. Glad to have them in our community!
I was pretty nervous about changing dentist after we moved out to Harford county. We literally waited 3 minutes before both of my children's names were called to be seen. The staff is excellent and very friendly. The office is bright, and very kid friendly. Dr Chris is amazing and took time to explain every procedure before performing it. Im happy to call this our NEW DENTAL OFFICE.
Absolutely LOVE this place!!! We goto the Bel Air office and they’re all so good with the kids- my kids actually look forward to going to the dentist and even ask when they can go back! My oldest needed to have a little work done- Dr. Lyman was absolutely wonderful and took the time to explain everything to him! Can’t say enough nice things about them all!!
I don't know what I would've done without Dr. Lyman. He fixed my son's mouth and did a awesome job! Even before his surgery was done. He made it fun and he helped me feel comfortable about the surgery. He is feeling like he can eat everything now. There is absolutely no pain. $2000 worth of work that needed to be done and it was all covered by his insurance. I love this place.
We just visited the new White Marsh location, and everyone was FANTASTIC! It was my daughter's first time at the dentist and she loved it so much she didn't want to leave! Our hygienist, Jen, and Dr. Lyman were so patient and friendly which made it fun. HIGHLY recommend!
I'm so glad I decided to take my daughter to Growing Smiles of White Marsh! The office is absolutely beautiful and very clean! Dr. Lyman and his staff were very friendly and made my daughter feel at ease. They explained everything that they would be doing and made sure that my daughter and myself were comfortable every step of the way! This was my daughters first experience at the dentist, and they made it a fabulous one where she is excited to come back for her next visit!
My 6 year old daughter had her first appointment at the belair office today. She described it as "one of the best days ever!". Like seriously, what kid says that about a trip to the dentist? They were just absolutely amazing. I will be recommending to everyone!
My 5 children have been seen by Growing Smiles over the past 12 years. We've always had the best care there and I recommend them to everyone. The office staff is always very friendly and accommodating to our busy schedule. The hygienists and staff are very kind and do a great job even with my kids who were a bit shy and scared to go for the first time. All of the kids actually get excited to go to the dentist, because they make it so inviting. The dentists including Dr. Diana and Dr. Lyman are professional, knowledgeable but also very friendly. We had a few emergency situations over the years dealing with the kids teeth and they have helped us through those situations smoothly - sometimes talking over the phone or squeezing us in for a same day check up. Its always easy to get an appointment. Thanks Growing Smiles for serving the families in Harford County the way you do!
High tech, plenty of entertainment in waiting room for kids. Friendly, caring, patient staff who are very engaging and helpful. Dr. David invited and answered my questions regarding my 3 year old. Excellent service all around!
I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and today we were at the Growing Smiles office in White Marsh for the first time. I LOVED it! Dr. Lyman was FANTASTIC with both of them and the staff was super friendly. My 3 year olds teeth were counted, cleaned, brushed and flossed without a single tear shed! The office was very clean, and colorful. If anyone is looking for a dentist for young ones, this one comes HIGHLY recommended!
We loved it!! Dr. Diana was so personable and extremely good with my kids. The new location is immaculate and my kids loved the toy machine. I loved the spacious rooms and warming atmosphere. The staff was so friendly and made us feel special. Thanks for an awesome experience
Growing smiles is Amazing! Everyone who works there are always so sweet and kind to my kiddos. My 4 year old son had his first cavity filled today and Dr. Lyman and his assistant were absolutely wonderful! They mDe him feel so relaxed and comfortable he didn't even need the gas! My kids LOVE going to the dentist because of your great office!!
My kids love going there to see Dr. Diana & Dr. Kim. Everyone there is very friendly & the most important thing is they are great with the kids. My 3 years old daughter favorite part is when she gets a prius bag & a balloon.
My daughter (age 4) loves going here and seeing Dr. Diana. They are sweet, patient and talk to her the entire time. I also hear the male dentist is very nice. She loves the coin for the toy machine, as well as the book and toothbrush at check ups. They also have balloons, which is awesome. They go above and beyond to make the kids feel comfortable
I absolutely LOVE this office and the staff I had all 3 of my kids treated last Friday all in the same room, the dentist was fabulous the assistant was amazing very friendly made you feel more as friends. My kids were comfortable sitting in the chairs waiting to be seen.. the office is super clean. Giving the kids a gold token at the end to use in the machine to get a toy is a great idea! I'd recommend anyone to this great office! Thank you guys!
What a place! My son is only 15 month old and granted, he cooperated (phew, thank god), but they were grand! Everybody was very pleasant, the place is beautiful and they give them all kinds of little toys and books to entice them to come back. My son loved the balloon at the end.
I wish this was my dentist too. :)
Dr. Diana and her staff are amazing! I take my 3 year old to see this practice and they have always done a fantastic job! Yesterday, while babysitting my autistic nephew, one of the brackets from his braces detached from his tooth and the wire was left sticking out of his mouth. He lives out of town and his Mom was on a plane. I tried calling every orthodontist in Bel Air but learned none of them work on Fridays! I called Growing Smiles in a panic, wondering if they could help...Dr Diana filled us in, took great care of my nephew, and was very understanding of his special needs. I will always bring my children here. Bravo!
I'm honestly in awe every time I visit this office with my son. It's filled with gifted professionals who put nervous children at ease. Dr. Todd Lyman absolutely amazed me with how he handled a small cavity in my four year-old's mouth -- he got my son to relax by telling him a story about his dog while he worked on the filling. He didn't even need pain meds during the procedure. Truly an amazing practice. Thankful!
My daughter has had the best experience with both Dr. Capobianco and Dr. Lyman. Lori, the surgical coordinator is also very pleasant to deal with and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend them!
The staff is truly amazing and caring! I have two children, and they both LOVE visiting the dentist. Thank you for making the trips to your office so enjoyable for the kids. It is obvious you truly have your patients best interests at heart♡♡♡!!!
I just want to thank Growing Smiles for being an AMAZING dental office ✨- I had a request and they got back to me the day of my request and gave me exactly what I needed the following day! Not to mention - that EVERY visit is great. We love the staff and your facility is always neat and clean. Thank you so much for being so wonderful !
Thank you for taking such great care of Camryn! I'm blown away by how well she did during her treatment. Thank you for making her comfortable and acknowledging her bravery. I will definitely recommend this practice.
You guys are the best!! My daughter has sensory issues and another daughter that is scared of doctors, and you guys were so patient , even tho they cooperated. I was really worried about my one daughters fear but you really eased her. I would recommend you to ANYONE. The staff is just amazing, the balloons, the tokens they get! My youngest had her teeth surgery through you guys at the hospital and you were nothing but wonderful!
