Our philosophy has always been to take care of our patients. We understand that dental emergencies may not occur during regular business hours. So, we 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. The outgoing message includes 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. This way, 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 Maryland dental specialist providers, if you need to see a specialist, we can usually facilitate the scheduling of an appointment within one to two business days.
