Twenty-four hours in a day is never enough time for most families. Seeing your pediatric dentist should not be a be a burden or hassle you struggle to fit into your life. Instead, it should be hopeful, efficient, peaceful, personal, and doable. It really should be another priceless gift a parent or guardian gives to their child. If your child is not in prime oral health, you should have peace of mind knowing that your dental home can help you get there. Rock Kids Dental is an inspiring place where we help families reach optimum dental health by tailoring oral care to family life.

Irene Apata, DDS

Welcome to my practice! I am excited to meet you and your child. As a mom of 3 wonderful kids, I understand how difficult it is to get your kids to the dentist. Here at Rock Kids Dental, we hope to make your experience as easy as possible.

I am a board certified pediatric dentist. I was educated at the University of Maryland and the University of Florida. I focus on individualized care and treat every patient like my own children. We only do work that is necessary, with the aim to inspire change that lasts their lifetime.

I am also an award winning songwriter, Nigerian-American, and local to Crofton. It is an honor to serve the community I live in. Learn More about Dr. Apata >>
