DC Pediatric Smiles is Celebrating Fall with a $100 Whole Foods Giveaway!

DC Pediatric Smiles is getting excited for fall! And to celebrate the season, they are giving one lucky KFDC reader a $100 Whole Foods gift card to help with those busy school nights — you can pick some up some healthy food to go and make the weeknight a little easier for everyone.

DC Pediatric Smiles is proud to be the only pediatric dental practice in Bethesda owned and operated by a board certified pediatric dentist. The brand new office has ample free parking and is all digital — you can schedule an appointment online, and all new patient paperwork can be done from your home.

Their family-friendly hours include select evenings and Saturdays with 24/7 on-call services provided by their pediatric dentist for any after-hour emergencies. They are now accepting new patients, and the first visit for any patient under two years old is free! They also offer free office tours for patients of all ages — but you can get a glimpse of it in the photos below.

DC Pediatric Smiles is located at 5640 Shields Drive Bethesda, MD. They can be reached at 301.363.9026 or smile@dcpediatricsmiles.com.

Where to Play on the Weekdays: September 18-22

Entertainment provided by sea lions at the Zoo

Monday – Have a wild time at the National Zoo! Check the Daily Programs schedule before you go to help plan your outing — you can view an elephant training demo, see the furry residents of the Kids’ Farm, watch feedings, and more — or pick your animal visits as you go. This time of year, grounds are open 8am – 7pm, exhibit building hours are 9am – 6pm, and the Visitor Center runs 9am – 6pm. Admission is free, though parking in the Zoo lot for non-members is $22 (free for members). You can also try parking on Connecticut Avenue or a side street, or take Metro to Woodley Park or Cleveland Park stations then walk a few blocks.

Tuesday – Let little ones bounce, climb, swing, tumble, and slide at the PG Sports & Learning Complex Gymnastics Center in Landover, MD. The hour-long weekly open play session begins at 11:30am, and admission is $7/child. (This also takes place on Wednesdays at 11:30am, Fridays at 4:30pm, and Saturdays at 1:30pm.) Read more about open play at PG here.

Wednesday – Enjoy a musical morning with Boogie Babes as they bring kiddie entertainment to Eastern Market at 10:30am. Kidsinger Jim will get little ones dancing along fun tunes. Admission is $6/child, and siblings 6 months and under are free. Plan on lunch after the show — there are lots of options at the market or nearby for a tasty bite. (FYI: Boogie Babes shows now take place every Wednesday & Thursday at 10:30am at Eastern Market, and all shows benefit the DC Diaper Bank.)

Thursday – Summer isn’t quite officially over according to the calendar — or the weather — so savor the last of it at Yards Park. Play in the sprays and wading pool, hang out in the grassy areas, stroll the boardwalk, take in the views, and have a picnic by the water or go for lunch at one of the many nearby eateries.

Friday – Explore the woods and wetlands of Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria. Look for little creatures as you hike — turtles, frogs, fish, and birds are practically guaranteed wildlife sightings — and take in sweeping vistas of the marshland. Be sure to stop in the Visitors Center, where there are several interactive exhibits about the surrounding environment. Open daily from dawn to dusk. Admission is free. Sunscreen and hat recommended.
