After reading some reviews online I was expecting the wait time to be very long. I was brought in only 20 minutes late, but I was filling out papers for the first 10 minutes or so. I was very nervous and the dental assistant knew that and did what he could to help calm me down. He was amazing, very attentive and making sure I was okay. When it came time to do the procedure the numbing medicine was not really helping so I could feel most of the pain, when I would tell the one doing the procedure he would get a little frustrated and roll his eyes at me. This then upset me because I was in pain, and he was becoming frustrated with me because I could still feel what he was doing. He was quick with the procedure which I appreciated, but the eye rolling was not necessary

This was by far the best visit we've had. My son's hygenist Penny was amazing and very informative which I'd greatly appreciated. The time spent with the doctor was adequate and she was very nice.

Will never come here again. First they canceled my son appointment. We didn't know it was canceled until we drove from laurel MD to Tacoma MD location for them to tell us that. They reschedule for the following day. So we get here at 9 am still waiting after paperwork is filled out for them to say we can see him because he have a slight cough. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

If you're going to the Takoma Park location, expect to wait at least an hour after your appointment time before being called back. Then expect to wait some more. My son's appointment was at 9:45. However, we arrived 15 minutes early per their request. He did not get seen until 11:00.

The office was called several times and no one answered. The front desk receptionist wasn't very pleasant at all. However, the wait time was short and my son did excellent..

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
