Sleep Dentist Reviews


I’m a huge baby when it comes to going to the dentist but I found the Maryland Sedation Dentist and all of that changed (not really – they just know how to treat a 28yo baby lol). I started treatment with Dr. Adams 5-6 years ago. She’s cute and an amazing dentist (who knew that possible?). Her staff is extremely pleasant and make you fell warm.

I have been going here for almost five years now I believe. This is a great gem hidden underneath a condo building in the North Bethesda / Rockville area. Dr Adams and his staff are professional and friendly. I previously despised going to the dentist, but Dr Adams and his Sedation Dentist staff go out of their way to make you comfortable and relaxed
