Meet Our Team

Pediatric, Family, & Cosmetic Dentistry Clinics located in Woodbridge, VA

The staff at Lifetime Dental Care has a primary focus of making all our patients feel right at home! We consider your previous history, current oral health state and future goals to provide individualized treatment plan to suit your individual needs.

Our friendly and competent staff is dedicated to patient comfort and quality care. We believe the key to dental success is establishing good oral habits at an early age, with an emphasis on regular preventive dental care. Dr. April Toyer, being a pediatric dentist, will eventually graduate her patients once they reach adulthood or once they have advanced dental problems concerning permanent teeth. Dr. Leonard Toyer, Jr. is a general dentist that is highly trained in complex dental conditions. It is important for a pediatric dentist to have a strong relationship with a general and cosmetic dentist that they can trust so that they feel comfortable referring those patients that they have cared for since infancy. Our focus on prevention and excellent restorative skills will provide our patients with the tools to maintain superior oral health for a lifetime.

Thank you for choosing Lifetime Dental Care for your family’s dental needs!
