Oral SurgeonsEdit

William R. Dzyak
+++++ I imagine you've already received this recommendation, but just in case you haven't, I suggest you consult with Dr. Dzyak.

+++++We love Dr. Dzyak in Kensington. Noah just had his wisdom teeth removed earlier this month. A great experience, or as great as oral surgery can be. I also had a ton of oral surgery with Dr. Dzyak about 10 years ago. He is wonderful, kind, patient, a total pro. I highly recommend him. We were referred to him by our own dentist (whom we hold in very high esteem) for a number of consultations on various things (though not wisdom teeth), and even before we were his patients, we knew people who were quite happy with him as an oral surgeon.

Dr. Israel Putterman
+++++ I went to Dr. Israel Putterman for some bone work prior to having a crown put on. He seemed good, and was informative. Also, he might be higher priced than others.

Leonard Goldman
12510 Prosperity Dr # 250
Silver Spring, MD 20904

+++++ Leonard Goldman pulled 12 (!) of my daughter's teeth and we had a very good experience.

+++++ Leonard Goldman cut some gum tissue away from my daughter's back molars, in preparation for getting orthodontal work done. His team seemed very well prepared. (FYI, he is the husband of Dr. DeMarco, the orthodontist we go to.)

Dr. Terry Sweeney
Corner of Dennis Ave & Georgia (medical building with the pharmacy)

+++++ He removed my wisdom teeth & has performed a few extractions on my daughter.

Maxillofacial Surgery
Dr. David Ross Oral
Bethesda, MD

+++++We will likely be doing this surgery next summer but have been talking to our dental practice recently and they highly recommend Dr. David Ross Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Bethesda.


Dr. Norman Lockshin, Dr. Ben Lockshin, Dr. Amy Cole, and Dr. Edward Cowen
10303 Georgia Avenue, #309
(301) 681-7000

Customer Recommendation(s):
++++ We were happy with her (Amy Cole).

++++ We've seen both the elder and younger Drs. Lockshin and liked both of them.

++++ We've also seen both father and son and highly recommend them.

Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) SpecialistsEdit

Dr. Bosworth
Siegel & Bosworth
off Shady Grove Rd.

++++We really like Dr. Bosworth of Siegel & Bosworth, off Shady Grove Rd. we heard good things about Siegel, too.

Dr. Stephen Epstein
9715 Medical Center Dr.
Rockville, MD 20850

Customer Recommendation(s):
++++We are huge fans of Dr. Stephen Epstein. He diagnosed my daughter's enlarged adenoids, which were causing hearing loss, when no one else suspected what was wrong. Now she's a bubbly, chatty girl where before she could hardly speak at all.

++++I second the recommendation for Dr. Epstein. He removed my son's tonsils and adenoids and he was great both with him and with me.

Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy

It's small enough that he actually knows who I am when I come in or call. He's always been very helpful when I've had questions about my medication. Upon request, they will send you your medications by mail or deliver them to your door.
