Meet Mt Airy MD Pediatric Dentist Michael Virts, DDS

“Dr. Mike”

A lifelong Frederick County, MD resident, Dr. Michael Virts, or “Dr. Mike” as he is known around the office, has been involved in the dental field since he was in high school over 25 years ago.  Dr. Virts is a board-certified pediatric dentist and compassionately practices the full scope of pediatric dentistry in our practice.  He is also particularly involved with helping infants to feed properly, and has helped over 1,000 families with laser revision of their baby’s tongue and/or lip tie to help them to grow and thrive.  

Dr. Virts has more hobbies than you can imagine, but his favorites are fishing, woodworking, gardening, and performing music.  He lives in Middletown, MD with his wife, Kristen, their two boys, Jackson and Ryan, and a Golden Retriever named Sunny.
