WHAT IS OUR S.A.F.E METHOD?
As an expert in pediatric dentistry in Washington, DC, Dr. Pilcher is proud to offer a safe, welcoming and stress-free dental experience for her patients. With her S.A.F.E. technique — which stands for Sequential Approach to Familiarize and Engage pediatric patients — Dr. Pilcher created a game-like experience to help kids relax during their dental appointments.
This kid-friendly method helps us explain any instruments we’ll be using and procedures we’ll be performing so that our patients feel like they’re part of the process. We also incorporate mindfulness and relaxation techniques to put kids of all ages, including those with special needs, at ease.

Meet Your Washington, DC, Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Roya Pilcher has been a pediatric dentist since 2005. After earning her doctorate of dental surgery at the University of Maryland, she completed her residency in pediatric dentistry at New York University. Guided by the advice of her father, a physician, who told her, “Treat every patient like they are a member of our family,” Dr. Roya opened Smile Valley Pediatric Dentistry in Washington, DC in 2009. She remembers her father’s words each and every day. Whether it’s allowing you to hold your child’s hand through a procedure or suggesting your little one bring their own toothpaste to an appointment, her first priority is your child’s comfort and wellbeing.
