It’s been 11 years since Dr. Faisal Khan launched Grand Parkway Pediatric Dental. Back in 2012, it was just Dr. Khan and two employees. Today, this dynamic pediatric dental office has 23 members on staff and serves a population of thousands of little patients across Richmond, Rosenberg, Sugar Land, Fulshear, and Katy. “Dr. Khan loves kids, and kids love Dr. Khan!” says Dr. Khan’s wife, Samiha.
“Kids are my whole life,” continues Dr. Khan. “They’re so much fun. Every patient is different…children keep things exciting and fast-paced. My own kids, Zayna, Hamza, and Eisa, visit the office all the time. They love talking to the employees, and they help out by making goody bags and shredding papers. My life outside the office is hanging with the three of them. We are Marvel junkies!”
Dr. Priyanshi Ritwik, Dr. Annie Zheng, Dr. Khadija Khan, an oral surgeon, and an anesthesiologist join Dr. Khan at Grand Parkway Pediatric Dental to provide all aspects of pediatric dentistry, special needs dentistry, and minor orthodontics. Dr. Khan is also an on-staff physician at Texas Children’s Hospital and West Houston Medical Center. This team’s list of achievements is long and distinguished. Dr. Khan pursued a fellowship at Albert Einstein Medical School in Special Care Dentistry, where he obtained extensive training in working with children with various complicated medical and physical disabilities. He is a published author in the Journal of American Dental Association and the Texas Dental Association journal. Dr. Ritwik is currently a full-time Professor in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at UT Houston School of Dentistry. Dr. Zheng graduated from UT Health School of Dentistry as a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. After graduating from Yale University, Dr. Khadija went on to serve as co-chief resident at Stony Brook University in New York where she received specialty training and completed her residency in pediatric dentistry.
The Grand Parkway Pediatric Dental team can be spotted all over our community sponsoring events and giving tooth fairy presentations and talks to schools and daycares. The focus is clear: to create a comfortable and welcoming dental environment that helps children relax. And the entire staff loves being a part of Dr. Khan’s vision. Many call Grand Parkway Pediatric Dental the best place they’ve ever worked. “Everyone here is so hard working.” says one team member. “We really care for our patients!”
