The La Plata Dental team

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

Smile Restorations

Teeth supported by dental implants can not only replace any number of teeth, but they are versatile, long-lasting, and of course beautiful to look at! To do this, dental implant posts are placed below the gum line. Here, they mimic the function of tooth roots almost exactly. In fact, they mimic your natural tooth structure more so than any other replacement option. Even if you have lost several teeth, you don’t have to worry about the pitfalls of previous tooth loss.

Invisalign®Clear Braces

Make Your Smile Straighter, Faster

Turns out, you still have an opportunity to make your smile straight! With traditional bracket and wire braces, treatment is less ideal when you’re a working professional associating with other adults. With our beautiful alternative, the Invisalign orthodontic system, you can use clear plastic alignment trays instead! Treatment typically takes just 12 months to complete, so you can have a beautiful smile, improved confidence and easier at-home care without having to deal with metal hardware.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Tooth Replacement You Can Rely On

Do you wish your removable denture was more secure? Would you prefer a reconstructive option that not only looks more like natural teeth, but feels like them too? By talking with our team, you may be able to convert your current denture into one that works in tandem with dental implants! Just like it’s suggested in the name, dentures can be configured to attach to dental implants, giving them a more stable foundation in your mouth. Furthermore, you can enjoy the reliability, biting strength, and boost of self-confidence they’re sure to provide.
