April Toyer, DDS, FAAPD, is a board-certified pediatric dentist practicing at Lifetime Dental Care, PLLC, located in Woodbridge, Virginia.
Dr. April grew up as an “army brat” but resided in Bowie, Maryland, for many years. She attended the University of Virginia and received a degree in biology and bioethics in 2003. There she volunteered at the Charlottesville Free Clinic and developed a love for dentistry. Dr. Toyer attended dental school at the University of Maryland and took part in the Pediatric Dentistry Clerkship program. It was there that she met her husband, Dr. Leonard Toyer. During her summers off from dental school, Dr. Toyer worked for the Department of Education to be surrounded by young smiles. After graduating from dental school in 2007, she attended Howard University for her residency in pediatric dentistry, which she completed in 2009.
In her spare time, Dr. Toyer enjoys writing, playing the piano, swimming, and spending time with her husband and her son Austin.
Dr. April believes that the prevention of dental disease is the best cure. She skillfully delivers restorative care utilizing child-centered behavior guidance, anxiolysis techniques, and dental outpatient surgery under general anesthesia.
Dr. April became a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2011, which “certifies pediatric dentists based on standards of excellence that lead to high-quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD assures the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.” She is active in organized dentistry and serves on the House of Delegates for the Virignia Dental Association. She is also proud to be a consultant for the Committee of Sedation and Anesthesia for the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
