When you’re looking for a new dentist, you want to be sure to find someone who has an excellent reputation with their peers as well as their patients. Dr. David Gordon and Dr. Leonard Gordon have won best dentist awards, taught and lectured in front of dentists, and have positive reviews on Google, Facebook, and Yelp. Additionally, you want to find someone who can help you achieve your most beautiful, natural looking smile. As with any cosmetic work, you don’t want people to see that you had something done—you want them to see you. We can achieve the best cosmetic dentistry results so, in the words of our patients, people will compliment your smile, not your teeth. If you’d like to learn more about transferring care and coming here as a patient, visit our New Patients section.
At Gordon Center for General and Advanced Dentistry, we specialize in treating patients who have a fear of the dentist. First, you should know that you are not alone. Research suggests that anywhere from one in 10, to one in five people have some fear of going to the dentist. New patients often tell us that it is because of a prior experience. They may have felt rushed, pressured into unnecessary treatment, or found dental work to be painful. At Gordon Center, we take the time to make you feel comfortable. We’ll talk you through treatment options, answer any questions you may have, and make sure you are fully numb before completing any dental work. In fact, if you visit our Testimonials or YouTube page, you will see several stories of real patients who were afraid of the dentist, but love coming to see us!
Our philosophy has always been to take care of our patients. We understand that dental emergencies may not occur during regular business hours, and we will do our best to make you comfortable as soon as possible. During normal business hours, we make same-day appointments for our regular patients who are experiencing dental pain, sudden cracked teeth or have lost a crown. If you encounter a severe dental problem outside normal office hours on a holiday, weekend, or in the middle of the night, you can contact our office at 301-258-1998 for instructions on how to reach Dr. Gordon. If you are a new patient, we will find the next available new patient appointment during normal business hours, so that along with addressing your symptoms, we can be sure to gain a full dental picture, so our treatment contributes to your overall health. Because of our longstanding relationships with local specialist providers, if you need to see a specialist, we can usually facilitate the scheduling of an appointment within one to two business days.
