Great pediatric dentist office! My boys enjoyed their first experience there yesterday :)
Great place for kids! They are always accommodating if we arrive late and the kids don’t fear going to the dentist there.
Had a great experience and everyone was so nice.
Leah A. Neal
I've been taking my kids here for years. They love it and realy enjoy going to the dentist. All employees are super friendly and make your child feel at ease. So many little touches throughout the office that make it a fun experience.
I have two children currently one 4 and one 2 and both of them look forward to going to the dentist office something I never looked forward to as a child. The ladies in the office are very polite and efficient and the dental hygienist staff always make my girls feel like its fun and easy even when procedures need to be done. great environment and very kid oriented.
Growing Smiles is by far the BEST dentist around! The staff is super kind and everyone if so professional as well as fun. They provide a fun environment for your children and make it so your child wants to come back to see the dentist.
@yourgrowingsmile. Growing smiles has been part of our family since my boys were babies. They are now 13. Every employee there is wonderfull! Dr Lyman is the BEST! great with the kids and parents. Growing smiles Rocks!
After having a bad experience at another local dentist office where the kids left in tears and scared, I was advised to try Growing Smiles. From our very first visit I have been so pleased with all the kind helping people. My kids are no longer scared of the dentist. They are excited to wear their sunglasses and get their prize with they are done. The understanding staff is what makes it so pleasant. They know how scary this can be and they explain everything before they do it so they kids can understand.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr Lyman ! My son went in today for a procedure under laughing gas and he was absolutely awesome !
I am not one to write reviews, but I must say Growing Smiles is AMAZING. The staff is wonderful with my son; friendly and welcoming. He loves to go to the dentist! I could not be any more pleased with their staff, doctors and overall experience! 😀
I’m just going to copy and paste my recent fb update. 6/3/19 Talking with the staff at Growing Smiles Dentistry literally puts you in a good mood! Even if it’s just an appointment reminder. They are the literally the most friendly, uplifting and positive office I ever dealt with. Let’s be honest, when are you ever excited about scheduling appointments, filling out forms/referrals/paperwork etc at any doctors office??? Also, I have to mention how amazing they are with my son! It’s common for people to feel anxious about the dentist, even some adults. (🙋🏼♀️ lol) However the way they treat him, talk to him, and discuss everything that they are doing (because let’s face it, there’s a million questions, and a few more thousand after that 🤷🏼♀️) Everyone there makes it such a positive environment to where my son doesn’t have to feel scared or unsure, because he know Dr Bailey and his staff are his friend! 👨🏼⚕️🦷😁 (Chic fil a doesn’t have anything on them 🤣) Looking for a pediatric dentistry? Growing Smiles
Fantastic! So patient with the kids. No rush and my kids love going to the dentist!
Natalie Rose Di Maggio
Our daughter had a wonderful first visit today. The office was clean and all the personnel were exceptionally kind and friendly. The environment there encourages a positive relationship with the dentist and helps to set our child up for a lifetime of healthy dental habits.
Growing Smiles is the best of the best!! My children love going to the dentist because of the friendly staff and Dr. Lyman. From the moment we walk in the door until the moment we leave we are treated like we are family. Everyone is always so friendly and helpful. Dr. Lyman recently found a posterior toungue tie on my son and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor to perform the surgery. He was so patient and caring through out the surgery, he treated my son like he was one of his own children. We love Growing Smiles Bel Air!!🙂
The best dentist I have taken my kids to, they loved everything! Office was friendly and professional. Highly recommended!!
We love dr Diana and Growing smiles! My children love going to the dentist and that’s thanks to how great the staff treat my children! I tell everyone about this great dentist office!
Fantastic pediatric dentistry!! My three children have been going to Growing Smiles in Bel Air for the past 12 years. We have had a wonderful experience with the staff and the dentist, Dr. Capobianco and Dr. Lyman. My kids love to go see the dentist and I couldn't be happier with how they are with children and parents. My children continue to grow up and always ask if they can keep going here once they become adults!!:)
We absolutely love Growing Smiles in Bel Air. The staff is very friendly and the office is always clean and decorated nicely. My kids favorite part about coming is the tablets and after their appts they get coins to get prizes. Dr Diana is Amazing as well.
The best dentist Ive taken my children too. Very child friendly and they work so well with my child. 😀
Very caring professionals. My son had some work done today and 3 weeks ago. He was not scared one bit. Dr.. Lymann and his assistant Tina were great. Thank you!
Great team! Thanks always!
We had an AWESOME first visit experience and would recommend this office to everyone!
Amy Holcomb Thomas
Amazing experience from entering the office to the day of procedure for our 6 year old!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!
My son is 8 and has gone to Growing Smiles since he was 6 months old. He actually looks forward to going to the dentist- it doesn't get any better than that!
Elaine Yewon Yoon
I was at the White Marsh office for my 10 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son. The office was clean and nicely decorated for the season, the staff was very kind, and I was seated in less than 5 mins. Ms. Jenn and Dr. Diana (they're first name based and I find it very friendly) were amazing with my kids, very gentle and kind. I especially liked it when Ms. Jenn tried the polishing bristle on my son's finger before she actually applied it. I highly recommend this place!
Everyone is super friendly and great with kids! They are so patient even with my 3 year old who is terrified of the dentist.
Tabitha Ebert Underwood
My daughter went to the White Marsh location for her first visit and now she can’t wait to go back. She was terrified walking in and the entire staff made her feel at home. Everyone is super friendly and the facility is pretty awesome. We forgot we were in a dentist office. The dental assistant worked her magic with helping my daughter do her XRAYs (she refused at our old dentist) and the dentist was amazing at explaining everything that needed to be done. Looking forward to our future visits at Growing Smiles :)
Special thanks for Dr. Chris at the White Marsh location for always greeting us with his infectious smile, friendly banter, and quick wit. He didn’t miss a beat today when my toddler relayed to him that he’d be eating a POOP sandwich for lunch 🤭 Going to the dentist is so easy when in the hands of your friendly and knowledgeable staff!
Missy Sistek Hopkins
Super friendly staff, great for working with autistic children!
Lana Courtright Ophardt
We love Growing Smiles and highly recommend them! We’ve been going there for years and Dr. Diana and her staff are so friendly, helpful, patient and knowledgeable.
Kind and gentle staff with quality care. My son actually doesn't mind going to the dentist! And he would love to win the Nintendo Switch 😉
We love Growing Smiles! The atmosphere is fun, the ladies at the front desk are friendly, Jen, and Jenn, and Dr Chris are thorough and efficient (a big deal with multiple kids!), and every time we’ve been there, things were running on time. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Growing Smiles is the best pediatric dentist office we've ever been to. Everyone who works there is so friendly and is absolutely phenomenal with both our kids. Both kids have always been comfortable when we go, and they actually look forward to our visits. We can't recommend Growing Smiles enough, it is truly a special practice that we are so happy to recommend.
We had a great experience at Growing Smiles in Havre de Grace. Dr. Lyman was very patient with my son and his expertise and recommendation of a recently developed treatment option made the visit a pain-free experience. My son had a very painful experience trying to have a cavity filled at another dentist who was unaware of the newer option. They recommended a different dentist with an unpredictable bedside manner who uses partial sedation with medication. I looked for another option and thankfully found Growing Smiles. I highly recommend Growing Smiles!
My boys love going to the dentist. So glad for them to have such a greater experience instead of them fearing the dentist. 😊
They handle all my children, from age 1 to 13 yrs old, very well. We have been able to get quick appointments when needed for problems. Dr. Diane is very good with my 5 yr old when he needs extra work done. 31
My daughter was seen as a,new patient this morning and the experience was wonderful. My daughter was scared going in, but walked out with a smile. Thank you!
Everyone is very friendly and took excellent care of my kids. highly recommend!
Everyone here is so wonderful. They are so kind and patient and make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. I'm so glad someone I work with recommended them to me:)
Very bright and clean office. Staff very pleasant and professional. We did not have to wait - got waited on at our appointment time. Young dentist very good at his work and friendly. I wish dentists office were like this one when I was young, wouldn’t be afraid of going to dentist. FYI- grandmother
100% recommended! My son loves this place. Excellent service! Friendly Staff! Thankssss!
My kids love it here!! They are the best dentist for children!! Very professional, Everyone there is friendly & they are great with children. They make sure kids feel comfortable when they are there & actually tell parents about their upcoming appointment, what to expect & recommendation. I have been with them for about 3 years & I wouldn’t change it to anyone else. Keep up the great work Growing Smiles!!!
Sharon Krouse Miller
My boys love going to the dentist. All the staff is so helpful and take their time explaining things to them. The waiting room has movies and iPads to pass the time while we wait. They love getting their gold coin at the end of the visit, to pick out a fun treat in the vending machines. They really have made going to the dentist a fun experience!
Miguel loves the entire staff! Everyone is very friendly and efficient. They will even fax notes to school, balloons and toys are handed out at every visit, makes the whole experience memorable for the little ones!
Devrey Whitney Cunningham
We went to the Growing Smiles in White Marsh and saw Dr. Lyman. We were greeted by a warm and efficient staff and clean, fun office! My 5 year old son was very nervous about having a tooth pulled, but Dr. Lyman was so FUN and positive and made my son feel very comfortable in am otherwise scary situation.
Friendly staff and caring dentist. They make the dentist fun! Wish they took adults.
Exceeded expectations. Dr Lyman is wonderful with our child. The exam rooms are state of the art and the staff are very friendly and courteous. Highly recommended.
Katherine McDowell Wallace
Couldn't have asked for a better dentist appointment! I got a cavity filled and it didn't hurt! Thomas, age 11
Danielle Marsh Ghaner
We love Growing Smiles so much. My kids get so excited to go each time. The staff is so amazing, caring and of course beautiful as the boys say 😊. My son has mid autism as well sensory issues and the amount of care they put into making him feel comfortable is so special to us. Best place ever!!!!
Kelly B White
All three kids have a blast going to Growing Smiles. Minimal wait time, friendly staff, and clean environment. Great job!
Wonderful place for children. Everything here is geared toward making a dentist visit fun. I really appreciate all the little helps like wearing sunglasses or peaking at the mirror the dentist uses.
Nicole Mathaney Gore
All of the workers are so great! They're gentle and they are very caring towards the children.
Great dental office. My kids are so comfortable going there. My youngest (age 4) begs me to take him in for a cleaning! The staff are very caring and put the kids at ease!
Leah Pyle Hebert
we always have a positive experience here. The staff Are all so kind and gentle, and they always make my daughter feel comfortable. i highly recommend this office for pediatric dentistry!
My family started going to Growing Smiles on 43 last year and love it there! The entire experience from the moment you walk in the door is amazing. The staff is so friendly and every dentist we have seen so far has been great with my three year old. The atmosphere is welcoming, bright and clean. I have referred many people to this location. My 3 year old has had dental issues because of a fused front tooth and this was the first dentist office to perform an X-ray and get to the bottom of the problem; I finally got answers and he received treatment. My other son just had his first birthday and will have his first check up this month! Thank you Growing Smiles and happy holidays 🎄
My son had to have a tooth pulled, it became infected and they got him right away. Today we saw Dr. Chris and he was amazing with my son. He was making us laugh the entire time and keeping my son very calm thru the whole thing! I highly recommend Growing Smiles, best pediatric dentist we have been too!
Dear Growing Smiles my name is Lee John Quinter Jr I was very happy to see how awesome my sister Julia Quinter was treated at her appt with Dr.Chris today. I asked my mommy to please let me become Dr.Chris’s patient too. He is super nice, super funny, super friendly, and he made me feel safe seen how he took care of my baby sister. Thanks for treating me like a patient even tho my sister was the patient. Therefore, before we left my mommy made our appts😱🤪😁 My sister and I can not wait for our appts on December 13 🙂😍Can’t wait to have clean teeth a day for my bday(Dec. 14th I’ll be a 8yr old boy😁) Dr. Chris you are the “best” Dentist and your staff are the best ever too 🥰😍 Gracias Growing Smiles👏🏻
My 5yr old loves her Dentist! She goes to the White Marsh office which is beautiful!!!!!!! Wonderful, wonderful staff!
We Love Growing Smiles! Dr. Lyman always relates to my girls whenever we go. When my oldest daughter was 2, she came in for her first cleaning and check up. I had my younger daughter in the carrier. She was an infant. The baby was crying, and my 2 year old was overwhelmed with her first visit. I was very stressed, not knowing what I was going to do. Dr. Lyman asked if he could hold the carrier while we talked about my older daughter’s teeth. He swung the carrier back and forth for me while we discussed the check up...which went lovely! The hygienists were so kind to my older one who was a little nervous, and helped her through her cleaning. Dr. Lyman swung the carrier to help my baby stop crying, and had me sit and take a break as we talked. He will never know how much he touched my heart this day. We’ve been going to Growing Smiles ever since! My girls are 3 & 4 now...and Dr. Lyman still treats them like princesses and relates to them on their level during their check-ups. We had their 6 month cleaning done this morning, and Dr. Lyman saw they were wearing Paw Patrol shoes. He discussed Paw Patrol with them during the check-up like it was his favorite show he has ever watched. So gentle and kind with them during the check up as well. And again...the hygienists are always phenomenal! We will never go any place else! My girls look forward to going to the Mario room during any check-up! And they love their balloons and their trips to the treasure chest when they are finished with their cleaning. WE LOVE GROWING SMILES!!!!
Went to the White Marsh clinic and loved it! From staff to the ambience to Dr. Chris. Everyone was nice and super friendly. They provided a good, inviting environment for my baby girl. I also would like to give kudos to Dr. Chris, he took the time to explain everything to my 7year old as well as with me. He is very gentle and has very good rapport with my daughter.
The staff is so great! They always make us feel at ease and very comfortable. They have a great way of making their patients less fearful and they make every effort to make a trip to the dentist to be not a big deal!
Love Growing Smiles & all of the staff!! We have been taking my special needs son there for 13 years and they are always on time & GREAT with him!! The Hygenist are very patient, careful and caring!! The Dentists have all been great & we highly recommend this practice!!
Christina Edwards Pane
All 4 of my children are patients at the White Marsh location and they all love going to the dentist!! Everyone is so helpful and friendly and they bend over backwards to make the experience super easy for us parents !!
great place. extremely friendly staff.
This is a wonderful dental practice. My children have seen both Dr. Lyman and Dr. Diana. Everyone here, the office staff, dentists, etc. are compassionate, caring, and child friendly. I highly recommend them!
Awesome team, and always a great experience! From the friendly welcome at the front desk, to the knowledgeable and understanding hygienists and Dr. Diana, to the superb and upbeat scheduler Kristen on the way out (having school notes ready for us!) my kiddos are well taken care of! Kudos to you guys for making the dentist an anxiety-free, welcoming experience for my kiddos. Thank you!
Great with our kids - makes going to the dentist fun
Very caring staff and great with our kids. Highly recommend!
Melissa Bennington Kasten
Our family has been going to Growing Smiles for almost 10 years now. They have been wonderful for my 3 children! My youngest is 6 now and she actually gets excited to go to the dentist and wishes she could go back more often than every 6 months!
My boys loves the staff and so do I. They are very good with children.
Petrina Hayden Youngbar
Always a great experience! Staff is professional and respectful! Love the staff at the White Marsh location!
Joanna Corteggiano Dieter
The entire staff at Growing Smiles is always welcoming with a smile. They are so friendly and efficient. We haven’t had to wait for an appointment or wait to be seen. With 3 little ones its always helpful to get in and out! Thank you Growing Smiles for being so wonderful!
Amy Beck Lennon
Our kids love that the staff are nice and helpful. They don't make the process scary and the tokens are always appreciated. The waiting room having movies and tablets to play on is a great perk. Really, if a dentist can be fun--this one is.
I really had a great experience my time time there with my son. He really loved this place. The people there was really awesome and the went beyond the call of duty. They made my son feel welcomed and happy to the point he wants to go back. Thank you all for being so wonderful.
Jennifer Hoffman Nakhla
I have been taking my kids to GS for almost 10 years now and have had nothing but good experiences. I have a child with special needs, who didn’t handle going to the dentist well. They worked with me for a year to get him to the point where he can go in and have a full exam and cleaning with no problem. They took there time with him, were patient and encouraging. Even now when a procedure comes up, they find the best way to make things successful for him. Their Dentist, Hygienists, Techs, and Administration has been hands down the best I have ever encountered. A professional and caring operation all around. I am proud to say my kids go there!
Beth Rau Aquilina
The dentists and hygenists are wonderful - so caring and gentle
Sindy Van Meter
We switched to Growing Smiles in White Marsh from another well-known pediatric dentist. I am so pleased to have found such a great place. My daughter has high-functioning Autism, and my 2.5 year old son is a very big handful, but the dentists and the staff make it seem like a breeze. My children actually love going to the dentist now! The office is extremely clean and they use top of the line, modern equipment which is important to me. I drive 30 minutes to get to this clinic, and I don’t mind the travel one bit. We have such a great experience each and every time. Coming from an Autism mom, I’m truly amazed that they made going to the dentist an enjoyable experience for my daughter. It means more than they know!
My kids really enjoy coming to the white marsh area dentist. The office is beyond welcoming and kid friendly and the bonus token after the appointment is a huge bonus !!
Mitch N Kitty Vega
OMG...what an amazing office. we bring all our kids here and it is HANDS DOWN the best place we have ever gone to for dental care. the staff is professional and courteous...and so good with kids, especially the younger ones. our youngest is 4 and they make the whole experience for him as easy as and painless as possible. they really care about how your kids feel about dental hygiene and going to the dentist. their concern really shows in their work. 10/10 highly recommend, you wont need to find another place
Our family loves Growing Smiles! We have been in a few times, but yesterday was our first experience with Dr. Chris-he was awesome! Both of my children enjoyed his calm tone and cool shoes. 😎 After leaving another family dentistry, we really like the vibe here and recommend Growing Smiles to all of our friends!
Dr. Chris and Dr. Diana are always wonderful. Both of my boys love Dr. Chris. The office is always efficient. As a parent who hates the dentist, my children love going and having their visits. Brushing used to be such a task, now they love it!
Our kids loved this place. play area that kept the younger ones entertained while others were being seen. Would recommend to anyone.
My 3 children ages 8 7 and 1 had dentist appointments at 10:30 here it is 11:00 and we’re done and on our way out the door! The office is super kid friendly super clean and the staff is AMAZING! My one year old had no problems and either did the other 2 older ones! Thanks so much for being thorough fast and amazing! The Brown family.
Rachel Howard Wiederhold
Growing Smiles Pediatric Dentistry has been so great for our children for their first experiences going to the dentist. the staff are very welcoming and the bedside manner is absolutely the best. We loved the White Marsh office so much we recommended it to friends as well. I recently received a hand written thank you note and gift card from Diana for a referral who started taking their daughter there. As a small business owner myself, the gesture is very much appreciated.
Amanda Lee Hamm
Dr. Lyman is friendly and great with my wild toddler. The office is clean and everyone who works there is amazing. They really take the stress out of taking the kids to the dentist.
loved everything about this place can't say enough good things!
Janice Grafje Bergen
Highly Recommended.... my children have a fear of dentist from previous bad experiences.. had their appointment here and absolutely LOVE it... from making the appointment to the actual appointment everyone was wonderful
Loved it!! My daughter is 14 months and barely cried .. the staff was amazing ! They were patient and took really good care of my baby.
Everyone in the office was incredibly nice and friendly. They made my son’s first dentist experience an amazing one.
Melody Marie Brammer Young
Dr Chris and all of the staff there are amazing... my kiddos love going to the dentist!!
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.
My children look forward to their dental appointments. They really take time to build relationships with my children. The lobby is also perfect if you need to wait.
Receptionist where really nice. Doctor was awesome with my son. Didn’t have to wait long
Morgan Ashley Wickman
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!
Melvin G. Young Jr.
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.
We love going to Growing Smiles! My kid have been going since they were both one! My daughter loves Dr. Diana so much she wanted to stop brushing her teeth to see her more!
Update: Less than a year after visiting my daughter has an infection under a cap, THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN, also started to have pain in another. They are so hyped to get it fixed yet it's a month out. My oldest daughter had a cap for 3 years and no issues went to Dentistry For Kids, which we will be returning to for our future appoints. 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
I wish I had a dentist like this when I was growing up. My kids love going to the dentist. Everyone is super friendly and put the kids at ease no matter the procedure
Love love love this place and the staff at Whitemarsh is wonderful
Lori Thompson- Hechler
We took our granddaughter here for her very first visit at the Dentist. She is 20 months old she cried but they did great with her. They were so nice very helpful we loved it. This is a great environment for children.😀
Dr. Capobianco, Dr Lyman and the Staff at Growing smiles are so welcoming. The children are entertained from the moment you walk in the door. I’ve been going here 9yrs and recommend every family I know that’s looking for a children’s dentist to visit Growing Smiles. Thanks for making the community a better place.
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!
Melonie Camus Conway
Switched my 8 yr old son from a prior dentist to Growing Smiles and he loves it! The facility is so welcoming and clean and the staff were wonderful, making him feel at ease. Highly recommend!
Denise Zunt Dabrowski
Dr. Diana was great. She is always gentle with the kids. She is amazing dentist. I would definitely recommend her!
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.
Tiffany Ann Banks
This place is amazing! My girls are very scared of new things and they tend to tense up and not Cooperate. My 7 year old went first and the Dr. Diane (spelling maybe wrong) was very patient and kind. She told her everything she was doing, laughed and joked and made her very comfortable. Another Woman came in (I did not get her name) for my 2 year old and was patient and talked to her. The assistant that we had was kind and pleasant. She talked to my girls like they mattered and even praised them constantly for doing a good job. They did so well and I’m very happy with the service and how informed I was about what was going on with their care. I’d recommend to everyone with children!!!
Kellie Knight Edris
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.
I’ve been taking my son here, and they are absolutely amazing! The entire team is so friendly and they do such a great job at making the kids feel comfortable. So glad we found growing smiles!
Katie Williams Badders
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.
Dr Chris is givning 200% to hos little patients. I’m very impressed!
We saw Dr. Lyman and we’re very pleased with him as well as the rest of the office.
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!
Stacy Holtschneider Koerber
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.
Danielle Kelly Vacheresse
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!

We drive from out of state just to come to this dental office! We love the staff, the atmosphere, and the pleasant experience that we have.

Little Bobby saw Dr. Diana and now he's not afraid of the dentist anymore!
Both kids into today...Can't thank Dr Diana and staff for such an amazing experience. She really has built a great experience
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!!

Took my son their for his first dental visit and he is 20 months old. He was scared and not a big fan but they where very patient and very good with him. Def will go back.
The entire staff is patient and kind and treats your children like their own. My son-who does NOT like going to the dentist-says “this is the best dentist ever!”
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.
Absolutely love this place and the staff! My daughter loves coming to the dentist!

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!
Very warm and welcoming. Very patient with my special needs daughter.
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!
All 3 of my children are seen at Growing Smiles and we adore everyone there! The staff and dentists are all amazing!!!!!
If I could give no stars I would. I would never return after the inadequate care they provided for my child.
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

Great place for kids. The doctors explain what they are doing to the kids.
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 prize bag & a balloon.
Dr Lyman and his staff our awesome thank you for taking care of Ian today!
My 3 sons have been patients for years. We love the care, staff and location. I recommend to family and friends all the time.

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. :)
Everyone in the office is kind and accommodating.

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!
Debbie Tipton Lunenfeld
We have had nothing but great experiences @ Growing Smiles! I would highly recommend them.

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!
