A few reviews for this pro...



Description of Work
I had extensive work to be done, still on going, and they have been terrific. They do not take a lot of insurance, but that seems to be the norm in the dental field.

Category periodontics



Very impressed with Dr. Rose who was highly recommended by a long time Periodontist from out of state where I resided prior to moving to Maryland. The dental hygienist provided the cleaning and care instruction. She was very knowledgeable and friendly, asking al the right questions and providing guidance on continued effective gum care.

Description of Work
First appointment, check up and cleaning. Staff excellent and dental hygienist was very skilled, informative and friendly. I have a followup appointment for X-rays and consultation.

I see Shreeti, the dental hygienist. She is wonderful. She takes as much time as I need to talk about my problems. She is very patient and very calming when I have problems. She communicates very well with Dr. Rose, the periodontist. She helps me to communicate with him because he doesn't have as much time to talk with me so it is very important that she has patience and time to let me get my word...

So far my implant has been successful.

Description of Work
I went to Dr Rose to get a dental implant done. This included a tooth extraction, a bone graft, and getting an implant in. Dr Rose was very professional and his staff is very competent. Dr Rose seems to be an expert in dental implants. The only downside is that Dr Rose seems to be more expensive than other implant providers. To me, a dental implant is not something you want to skimp on if you have the money though, and for me it was worth it to go to the best.

The surgery was a success. I am very happy with my new implant. Dr. Rose installed the post for the implant, and my regular dentist attached the prosthetic tooth to the post. Communication and coordination between Dr. Rose and my dentist was very important in the process; so I greatly appreciate the fact that Dr. Rose is so competent and pleasant. His prices might be a bit higher than some, but he...

Description of Work
I had an implant installed in the space where a molar had been removed by another dentist the previous year. I wish to highly praise the services of Dr. Rose and his staff. It was a slightly scary situation for me as I had never had an implant before. Dr. Rose is particularly compassionate and a good communicator. I like to understand all the details of a procedure, and he spent a considerable amount of time with me, patiently answering all my questions, drawing diagrams when necessary. His staff is also particularly easy to talk to; and the quality of the communication is superior to that of most of the other dental/periodontal practices I have used in the past. Margaret, the receptionist, is a pleasure to deal with.

Dr Apgar is extremely good. She calls up to find out how things are going.

Description of Work
Dr Apgar is my periodontist.

Category periodontics



Dr. Rose's ego and arrogance interfere with his medical decisions and care. I would NEVER recommend this person!

Description of Work
Dr. Rose placed an implant which two weeks later had to be removed because its placement had failed.

Category oral surgeons



Great! She was prompt, relaxed (i.e. not rushed), very patient and very kid-friendly. She took ample time to connect with my daughter before looking into her mouth. She also seems very knowledgable and has high standards. Took lots of time to teach me about periodontal issues during orthodontia, and to teach my daughter effective brushing and flossing technique.

Description of Work
Dr. Apgar evaluated our daughter's gum tissue, to ensure there is sufficient "support" for orthodontic appliances (braces).
