VK Pediatric Dentistry: Meet Dr. Peter, Arlington’s Newest Kids’ Dentist

Dr. Peter has a lot in common with his patients. He likes kayaking, rock climbing, playing outdoors, and watching soccer and basketball on TV.

What Dr. Peter does not have in common with his patients is his age: Dr. Peter Markov, a member of the National Dental Honor Society and a graduate of Case Western Reserve University, is a grownup, and his patients are children — all of them.

Dr. Peter is the founder and pediatric dentist at the brand new VK Pediatric Dentistry on Lee Highway, between Yorktown and High View Park neighborhoods. Being brand new means the office boasts the latest in dental technology, but in addition, the modern sun-filled office is intentionally designed to be comfortable and welcoming to children. It’s also fun and, of course, kid-friendly for all ages from infants to teens.

Grownups — i.e., parents — love VK Pediatric Dentistry too. VK Pediatric Dentistry offers many things they enjoy, including free covered parking, online scheduling, text and email appointment reminders, accommodation for an expanded list of insurance carriers and a location convenient from not just Arlington but most of Northern Virginia including the surrounding neighborhoods of McLean and Falls Church.

Not many parents know that pediatric dentists receive an additional two to three years of specialty training and have extensive knowledge of children’s dental health needs and growth development. Pediatric dentists receive training in advanced techniques and special dental materials as well.

Dr. Peter completed his specialty training at UPMC Children’s Hospital, a top 10 children’s hospital in the nation, and is proud to deliver top-of-the-line care for patients starting with their first baby teeth all the way up to their teen years.

“My goal is to raise a generation of kids who care about their dental health and are fearless in managing it,” he said. “With behavior guidance, nitrous oxide sedation and a staff that never stops smiling, we can usually get even the most nervous patients to have fun and accept care. We love kids and want them to have the best experience possible.”

VK Pediatric Dentistry is located at 5001 Lee Highway, Arlington. Call for an appointment at 703-962-7814 or schedule one online; for more information email [email protected].
