Here is MilitaryBridge's Top Fifteen List of United Concordia Military Pediatric Dental Providers in Hampton Roads
(1) Hampton Roads Pediatric Dentistry (Peninsula & Southside) *Vetted MB Partner*
Benefits: Eight locations throughout the peninsula and southside area of Hampton Roads. They do accept United Concordia. They love serving their military families and are committed to doing so. The dentists are fantastic and wonderful with the children.
5 STAR REVIEW: Love this practice, my kids have been going for five years. No complaints.
5 STAR REVIEW: We started seeing Dr. Bobby when our daughter was 5 years old. She was terrified of the dentist and I always dreaded appointments when I would bring her to my dentist (a non-pediatric dentist). Since the first time I brought her to HR Pediatric Dentist she didn't scream and cry. The practice is decorated with kids in mind. The staff is extremely friendly and great at working with children. We have been going to HR Pediatric Dentistry for 6 years now and we couldn't be happier. They have turned what started out as a not so good dental experience at my dentist to a very positive experience at their pediatric practice. I would highly recommend them to anyone.... we have also seen the other dentists in the practice to include Dr Behl (ortho) and they all are wonderful.
The dentists include Dr. Bobby Garofalis, Dr. Darchelle Braxton, Dr. Alexandra Katsantoni, Dr. Chikara Saunders-Fiddermon, Dr. Steve Bullock, Dr. J.B. Martin, Dr. Richard Pugliese, Dr. Christi Wengler, Dr. Luis Arango
