Introducing Dr. Samia Nikkhah

Since enduring less than pleasant dental visits in childhood, I’ve always harboured the aspiration to become a dentist. Therefore, at Pike District Smiles, I’ve wholeheartedly dedicated my life to revolutionising dental visits into stress-free encounters, thus guaranteeing a compassionate bedside manner for all our patients.

Meet Our Team

Anisa, a proud graduate of the University of Maryland, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene. With over a decade of experience, she has honed her skills as a hygienist. Importantly, Anisa takes great pleasure in working with individuals across all age groups to enhance their oral health. Outside of her professional life, she finds joy in exercising, immersing herself in reading, and cherishing moments spent with her family of four.
Walter, an esteemed graduate from Hagerstown Community College with a specialisation in Dental Hygiene, initially embarked on his career journey by gaining valuable years of experience as a Dental Assistant with our team. Subsequently, achieving his goal, Walter obtained his Dental Hygiene license. As a result, he places a high priority on ensuring each patient enjoys a pleasant experience and receives the high-quality care they deserve. Furthermore, patient education emerges as one of his most cherished job aspects. Beyond his professional commitments, Walter finds enjoyment in going to the gym, walking his dog, participating in church activities, and spending quality time with friends and family.

Flexible Payment Options

Everyone deserves quality dental care. As a result, we embrace a variety of insurance options, including CareCredit, to broaden accessibility. Furthermore, for those lacking insurance, we extend an affordable in-house plan. This plan, importantly, offers discounts on exams, cleanings, x-rays, crowns, fillings, root canals, dentures, implants, Invisalign, and more, thereby ensuring comprehensive care for all our patients. Through these efforts, we aim to ensure that every patient receives the care they need.
