Sometimes the hardest step is making the first call! Doing your research ahead of time will help you feel more comfortable. Ask friends for referrals, and choose an office with great patient reviews and a warm, welcoming staff. Often people choose a dentist based who accepts their insurance, but if you haven’t been to a dentist in a really long time it’s in your best interest to choose an expert office that won’t try to oversell you. Forging a long-lasting relationship with the right dental office will help you avoid unnecessary dental work. Call 301-258-1998 or click here to schedule an appointment.
If a dentist who takes your insurance recommends a procedure that you're not sure you need, bring your X-rays to Gordon Center for General & Advanced Dentistry for a free second opinion consultation. Few dental decisions on treatment need to be acted on immediately. Dr.’s Leonard and David Gordon will give you information that will allow you to make the decision that is best for you. We are able to provide an expert and impartial diagnosis, because of our unique vantage point: (1) Dr. Leonard Gordon and Dr. David Gordon have nearly 50 years of combined dental experience, so they’ve likely seen a case—or several—like yours before. (2) Because the Doctors Gordon do not participate with insurance, we are not under the same pressure to produce a certain amount of work, and therefore only recommend necessary treatments.

At Gordon Center for General and Advanced Dentistry, we work with all dental insurance companies. We are considered an “out of network” provider. This means we are not under contract with any insurance companies. (Dental insurance plans often tell dentists the treatment they should pursue—not necessarily the treatment that’s indicated.) We individualize care and provide you with the very best experience. It gives us the freedom to schedule your appointments based on the time you need, as well as to discuss treatment options and diagnose you based on years of clinical experience and success. As a fee for service office, we request payment in full at the time of service. We accept all major credit cards, check and cash for payment. Our office will electronically file your claim and all supporting documentation with your insurance company on the day of service. This will help you receive your maximum allowed dental benefit as soon as possible—and it means there is no additional work on your end. Most PPO insurance companies will help you with a portion of the cost of your dental care when you see an out of network provider; this reimbursement check will be mailed directly to you.
