Diversity and Inclusion - As the largest pediatric dental provider in Pennsylvania, we serve a diverse patient population, including special needs patients. Additionally, we accept a variety of insurances, and are one of the few providers who will accept Medicaid plans in the state. This enables us to make a greater impact with children who need it most.

At Children’s Dental Health, our business and support teams will take care of practice management and administrative functions, offering you time to focus on practicing dentistry, without the added pressure of managing a business after patient appointments. With us, you can enjoy a healthy career without limiting the amount of time doing what you love.
