Dr. Friedman is a proud graduate of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Following graduation, he served his country by enlisting in the United States Public Health Service in St. Ignatius, Montana. There he spent three years as the Director of Dental Services in General Family Practice in the Indian Health Service. At the end of his tour of duty, he returned to the Washington DC area, where he opened his private general practice that continues today. Dr. Friedman is a member of the American Dental Association’s Maryland State Dental Association, the Maryland Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is a fellow of the American College of Dentists and participates regularly in local dental study groups.
The dental team offers patients a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and sets aside plenty of time to understand each patient’s unique goals and concerns prior to developing a dental treatment and wellness plan. All patients have access to complete state-of-the-art preventive, cosmetic and restorative services, including diagnostic smile design, monitoring cavities and periodontal disease risks, short term braces and clear aligners, single-day tooth-colored crowns (provided with the CEREC® system), tooth whitening, and dental bonding with tooth-colored fillings and veneers.
They also offer a full-service Dental Hygiene Department that coaches and teaches an easy approach to effective plaque control, keeps your dental disease risks and susceptibility to a minimum, and effectively treats early-stage gum disease. We also offer a preventive care rinse program called “CariFree” that tests and treats decay susceptibility to help patients eliminate the risk of tooth decay. Regular oral cancer screenings are also performed as well as screenings for periodontal disease to help with early detection and prevention. New this year is an elective Wellness Coaching Program that helps patients chart a course for good health and well-being.
Whether you’ve recently relocated to the Washington DC area or it’s simply been a few years since your last dental appointment, Dr. Friedman and the team can help. Call the office or use the online booking tool to request your consultation today.
