Dr. Baliga is a MIRACLE WORKER! We tried to take our daughter to the dentist twice before and we couldn’t even get her in the chair. She would become hysterical. Today, we headed there in tears but Dr. Baliga even got her laughing & she loved it! Im still in shock, lol. Amazing office & staff! So glad we found them!

I took my 2 year old and 4.5 year old here today for an appointment. We have been to two other pediatric dentists and our experience at the last dentist was absolutely horrific. My kids both screamed the entire time, I had to restraint them during their cleaning and we were rushed though. I left those appointments feeling like I had run a marathon! Needless to say I was super anxious about this appointment. When we got there the receptionist was so friendly and helpful! She engaged my kids and gave my daughter a “job” to do while she was waiting. They had several iPads on the wall in the waiting room with several games for the kids to play. The dentist came out to get my daughter and she was incredible. She was so patient, explained everything, let her touch and use every piece of equipment and even put on the show she wanted to watch. They made her so comfortable! She got in the chair and laid there for the whole cleaning with no fear, tears or screaming. It was incredible. My son also came back and they put a truck show on for him. She talked to him and made him comfortable. He did fabulous through the cleaning. They even gave them a little travel pack with a toothbrush, floss and toothpaste. As a reward they were given a gold coin to put into a vending machine and pick a prize. I was so incredibly impressed with the service and care of all the people who work in this practice. We will definitely be going here from now on! I am so grateful that my kids finally had a great experience at the dentist!

Friendly environment and great service!

I took both of my young daughters who are usually very fussy with doctors and any sort of strangers to doctor Naru’s office. The setting was very calming and upbeat specially, for young kids. The staff was pleasant and very friendly. Suddenly my kids felt at home which made my job a ton easier. Overall, a fantastic experience!

Doctor Naru and her staff will be recommended to my friends and family.

Love love love! Took my 18 month old here. Front desk lady was very kind and professional. The hygienist was very kid friendly and chased my son around while the dentist discussed stuff with me. The dentist was very nice and informative. We felt very welcomed even when my son had a little tantrum 🙂 the place is beautiful. Can’t say enough good things. So glad they opened in Damascus!

This practice is amazing! From making the appointment and check in, everything was easy and the staff was so kind and professional. The hygienist and doctor were wonderful with my daughter. They made my toddler’s first dental experience so terrific that she didn’t want to leave!

We took our 2 year old for his first cleaning and everyone was so wonderful! The space was extremely clean and child focused. They were patient and let him get acclimated before starting his cleaning to make him feel more comfortable! Would highly recommend this dentistry! Looking forward to going back for his next appointment

Best experience ever. If you’re looking for an amazing pediatric dentist- go see Dr. Baliga @ New Smiles Kids Dentistry. Her office just opened in DAMASCUS off of Main Street. She was so inviting and unbelievably sweet with Henry and Claire. The office staff went above and beyond to make it an extremely positive experience.
