A Dental Experience Designed For Your Comfort

Our Dental Patients Love Us

“I am the WORST dental patient there is. Dr. Hochman was the GREATEST most patient dentist I have ever encountered. From the moment I walked in the door, EVERYONE made me feel relaxed. The dental assistants are wonderful and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. I am so happy that I have switched. I wish I would have done it sooner.”

Roz M., La Plata, MC

“My 7 year old daughter had her first appointment with Dr. Hochman's office yesterday and from the moment we walked into the office the staff made her feel relaxed and comfortable. She had quite a lot of work done and did an amazing job and I owe it all to Dr. Hochman, Terra and the rest of the staff. She came home and told everyone we saw about her experience, and even told her brother and sister how much they are going to LOVE this dentist office.”

Terah C., Mechanicsville, MD

“I would like to thank Dr .Hochman, Mellissa and the rest of his fantastic team. I felt totally comfortable and at ease. His patience first allowed me to put my trust in them, which only grew as my treatment continued. Now, after a number of treatments which enabled me to "smile” for my wedding, I can honestly say that he has become more than just my dentist—he has become a valuable friend.”

Modern Dental Implants

Replace Missing Teeth

Versatile, natural looking, and long lasting, dental implants allow us to replace any number of missing teeth. Dental implant posts are inserted below the gum line where they mimic the function of tooth roots. This means they end up looking and feeling almost exactly like natural teeth. What that means for you is simple – even if you’ve lost numerous teeth, you won’t experience diminished jawbone density or sagging facial features. You’ll just keep your flawless smile.

Relaxing Sedation Dentistry

Enjoy a Stress-Free Visit

For many people, visiting the dentist is a dreaded activity. Stress, pain, and fear are just some of the things sufferers of dental phobia or anxiety experience before visiting the dentist. At La Plata Dental, our caring dentists and team want to help you change your mind about dental appointments. In addition to treating each patient with kindness and respect, we can also provide sedation dentistry services to ensure every patient is completely comfortable throughout their time with us.

Invisalign®Clear Braces

Straighten Your Teeth

If you think it’s too late to straighten your smile, think again. Traditional bracket- and-wire braces may be a less-than-ideal option for busy adults with professional images to maintain, but we have a beautiful alternative. The Invisalign® orthodontic system uses clear, plastic alignment trays to gently shift teeth into position. In just about 12 months of treatment, you’ll have a beautiful smile and improved confidence without any of the hassle of braces.

We welcome patients of all ages at La Plata Dental, and we can often schedule a block of appointments for family dentistry on the same day.

Implant Dentures

Reliable Tooth Replacement

Are you unhappy with your removable denture? Do you wish you could enjoy a reconstructive alternative that feels much more like your natural teeth? It’s time to talk to our team about the possibility of having your existing prosthetic converted into an implant denture. Like the name suggests, implant dentures are designed to attach in place over a small number of dental implants and remain securely in the mouth. You’ll be able to enjoy increased reliability, better chewing strength, and much more self-confidence!
