The Patient Experience is Our #1 Focus

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.”

Dental Implants

Restore Your Smile

Dental implant-supported teeth are designed to not only look natural and last a long time, but be incredibly versatile. With them, we can restore any number of missing teeth by placing titanium posts into the jaw beneath the gum line. This way, they mimic the function of tooth roots, meaning your implant-retained restorations are even closer to your previous natural dental structures. Despite losing natural teeth, you don’t have to experience diminished jawbone density or deal with sagging facial features. Enjoy your truly flawless smile!

Stress-Free Dentistry

Sedation Options Available

We understand that many patients find it very difficult to visit the dentist. If you have dental phobia or experience anxiety prior to your visit, we want you to know that we understand this stress and fear you’re struggling with. La Plata Dental’s dentists and team members are prepared to help you reconsider skipping dental visits, no matter how severe your anxiety might be. We always treat patients with kindness and respect as well as offer sedation dentistry services should you need additional help getting comfortable during your time with us.

Invisalign®Clear Aligners

Realign Your Teeth and Bite

La Plata Dental wants you to know that it’s not too late to straighten your smile. While traditional metal braces can be a less ideal option for adults maintaining a professional image at their full-time job, there is an alternative worth considering. With the Invisalign® clear aligner system, we use clear plastic alignment trays to move teeth into a straighter and healthier position. On average, treatment takes just 12 months to complete, so you can have a beautiful smile and improved self-confidence without having to deal with metal braces!

Implant-Retained Dentures

For Long-Lasting, Reliable Tooth Replacement

Do you find your removable denture difficult to use? Wish you could have a restorative alternative that not only looks better, but feels more like your original teeth? If so, it sounds like you’re ready to talk to our team about having your current denture transformed into an implant-retained version! Just like it’s suggested in the name, this restorative option is designed to attach to dental implants, which are more securely fastened inside your jaw. The result is a denture that is more reliable, offers better biting strength, and allows you to live your life with more self-confidence.
