Dr. Maher and her team are top notch. We have three kids under 8 and they all do great with her cheerful, professional staff. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to find excellent dental care for their children.

I would highly recommend! It is a very child friendly environment from the tv and arcade games in the waiting room, to the halls and rooms filled with Disney posters, to the extremely kind staff. My son had to have fillings done and they were so good with him! They helped him feel comfortable, had him laughing and always give lots of stickers and prizes for being brave

The Staff members at Dr. Maher's office are always kind, courteous and professional. They take wonderful care of my children's teeth and make them feel comfortable and safe during all their dental appointments. Highly recommend using Dr. Maher for all your pediatric dental needs!!!

For my son's first and second dental visit, I couldn't have asked for more. The hygienist, Ms. Tina, is so warm and welcoming. She truly made me and my son feel at ease. She explains everything she is doing in a gentle way that my son understands. This is very important to me because I feel like it sets him up for great dental habits. When the doctors come in they are informative and kind.


My son has been going here for about 7 years now, and he loves going every time. They make us feel comfortable and they educate us on a lot about his teeth each time. The staff is amazing and always helpful and Dr. Maher is awesome! She gets the job done and have educational conversations at the same time with my son and we are all so thankful. I highly recommend this facility!
Thank you so much!

We are huge fans of Dr. Rachel Maher and her staff! They are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and wonderful at helping kids with their dental hygiene. They are THE best pediatric dental staff in Delaware and we highly recommend them.

My son is a bit difficult to handle because he gets anxiety when it comes to anything medical but the staff and the dentist and the dental assistants were absolutely wonderful. They were so helpful and patient. I honestly don’t think I could find a better dentist and better place to take my son and I feel that he is in wonderful hands. Thank you.

Exceptional service...Dr Maher has been our children’s dentist for the last 13 years. She and her staff are always so patient and kind. They do a great job explaining things in an age appropriate way to our girls. Dr. Maher and her dental hygienists are always great at highlighting what they are doing well and educating them about what they could do better. Jen and Kira at the front desk are exceptional and always bend over backwards to work with our busy schedule. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone with young children.

We love Dr Maher and the staff at Dentistry for Children! My grandfather was my first dentist, so I am pretty picky about dentists for our family. Dr Maher lives up to my high expectations! Our kids have no fear of the dentist - that is a huge plus!! We have been patients for almost 10 years and are very happy!

We love coming to Dentistry for Children. We landed here after visiting several practices where we weren’t getting what we needed. The staff is skilled and friendly. Everyone is wonderful with the children. My kids always have a good experience and they have managed any issues flawlessly. The decor and the movies are a hit, and of course, the kids love the toys. The front desk and business end are seamless and their communication and responsiveness are top notch. We thrive on their text reminders. Overall I highly recommend this practice. We moved and drove over 30 minutes each way, past dozens of other dental offices and we would drive farther.

Dr. Maher provides excellent care at each and every visit. She and her team are friendly and compassionate. We appreciate the time she spends with our daughter and us at every visit.

Dr. Maher is an incredible caregiver and dentist. My daughter had severe dental phobia and she was asked to leave three different general dentist offices. Worried that she was not receiving the care that she needed, I found Dr. Maher's office as my last hope. Dr. Maher was the first (and only) dentist who was able to calm my daughter and allay her dental fears. We were able to complete her entire treatment plan and my daughter stayed with Dr. Maher until she was 18. I highly recommend her and her staff.



Our family of 4 children have been Dr. Maher's patients for 12 years. She is exceptional. She runs her practice with high standards that you can trust you are getting the best treatment around. Even while you wait for the appointment, it is the best child friendly atmosphere. My older 2 children had to move to an adult dentist, needless to say they miss being Dr. Maher's patients.

The staff is very friendly. My son who is on the spectrum can have a hard time when something is different than his usual cleaning. They are patient with him, show him the tools, explain what each tool does and let's him feel them. This is so important for any child. Most kids are terrified of the dentist, but taking a few minutes to explain everything like this, can make a world of difference!

 M. Fleming


Dr Maher was beyond amazing. My son had surgery that lasted over 3 hours with 7 caps and removal of a tooth. He has experienced 0 pain and no swelling. How she managed that is beyond me but we got our miracle. Thank you so much to you and your staff. Anne Marie was also a lifesaver in working with us and making sure we understood what was needed. I can not say enough about how wonderful this practice is.

My children have been visiting Dr. Maher for over 13 years. Dr. Maher and her staff are fantastic. You will be very grateful that you find her.

 Edward C


The most professionally run office I've ever been in. My son has been coming for almost ten years and has never had a traumatizing experience like he had before coming here. The waiting room is very appealing for kids with toys, Disney movie playing, arcade game (pac man). The dental area is also very appealing and the technicians and dentists are friendly and gentle. I am sad that my son will age out of this practice after next year.

  •  Amy Reid


Love Dr. Maher!!! She's the best pediatric dentist!! So kind to my children. Treats them as if they were her own.

Really impressed with our first visit. Loved seeing a welcome sign made just for my daughter and I was really impressed with how the entire staff truly has a skill with high anxiety kids (and moms).

I will recommend Dr. Rachel Maher without any doubt to anyone with kids. She was so personal with my daughter. Krista one of their hygienist patiently explained the whole process to 3 year old which led to a smooth process. Awesome job...
