Practice Philosophy

“One size does not fit all in modern dentistry. I truly believe in listening to what the patient wants and then designing a custom treatment plan based on what the patient wants to achieve,” says Dr. Djawdan. “Most patients I see in my practice have not been to the dentist in seven, ten or even twenty years. Many of them cover their mouths when they laugh or smile. Often men grow mustaches or beards to cover their embarrassment. I truly understand the fear and embarrassment associated with going to the dentist. I am not here to judge my patients; I am pleased to be given the opportunity to help them renew their smile and confidence.”

Dr. Djawdan, his wife and Practice Coordinator Renee, their daughter, Shelby, and two dogs, Rhody and Gabby live in Annapolis, Maryland. Dr. Djawdan enjoys spending time with his family, as well as skiing, flying, scuba diving and sailing.
