Pediatric Dentistry And Orthodontics In Bethesda

At Harmony Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we take a functional approach to treatment. That is to say, we look at dental health not only on its own, but also in how it relates to the rest of the body, and vice-versa. Board-certified specialists Drs. Madeleine Goodman and Heather Sholander came together in their careers and their ideals to create a dental practice that operates on a philosophy of harmonious interconnectedness. By combining art and science, STEM and creativity, orthodontic treatment and pediatric services, Harmony Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics offers comprehensive care for children and orthodontics for the entire family. With an integrative and efficient style, we are bringing quality, patient-centered care to Bethesda and surrounding communities.


We specialize in a wide array of orthodontic procedures, from traditional metal and ceramic braces to Invisalign clear aligner therapy. Dr. Goodman will guide your child through the orthodontics process to give them a head-start towards a lifetime of dental wellbeing.

Why Is Orthodontics Important?


Children are more than just tiny adults. They have their own personalities, their own fears, and their own feelings. Your little ones benefit immensely from receiving dental care from doctors who specialize in pediatric dentistry. Dr. Sholander has over a decade of experience in making children smile.

Meet The Doctors

Dr. Goodman & Dr. Sholander

Dr. Maddy Goodman and Dr. Heather Sholander have always had a lot in common. They both grew up in families of doctors or dentists and held strong interests in science, medicine, and helping others from their youngest days. When they met at Light Pediatric Dentistry, it wasn’t long before they realized that they shared a passion for integrative and innovative care that treats dentistry and orthodontics as a part of the larger whole of overall health and wellbeing. After eight years, they decided to open their own practice where they could implement their collective vision of dentistry and orthodontics for their community.

Reviews & Testimonials

Dr. Goodman and Dr. Sholander are excellent pediatric dental practitioners. They managed all three of my children's ortho and dental care needs for 8 years (I have two children with special needs so this requires serious super powers!). They are infinitely patient, kind, and gentle with their young clients and are very passionate about their profession. Highly recommend.

Our Give

City Blossoms

As an orthodontic and pediatric practice, our goal is to help create the next generation of healthy smiles through an early adoption of good dental habits. City Blossoms is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering healthy communities through the creation of kid-driven green spaces and gardens in urban settings. These spaces promote creativity, healthy habits, and environmental awareness through a direct connection with nature. Based out of Washington D.C., but active nationwide, City Blossoms is making an impact every day, giving children across the country a healthy relationship with the natural world. For every new patient we will support this cause by donating plants to help their gardens grow because we believe that health starts from the ground up!
