Stephen J. Friedman, DDS, a Dentist in private practice

Get to know Dentist Dr. Stephen J. Friedman, who serves patients in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Dr. Friedman, a well-versed dentist, tends to patients’ dental needs at his private, premier dental practice in Silver Spring, Maryland.

He and his team remain committed to providing state-of-the-art cosmetic, restorative, implant, orthodontic, and preventive dental services, including diagnostic smile design, monitoring cavities, and periodontal disease risks, oral cancer screenings, short-term braces, and clear aligners, single-day tooth-colored crowns (provided with the CEREC® system), tooth whitening, and dental bonding with tooth-colored fillings and veneers. They offer patients a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and set aside plenty of time to understand each patient’s unique goals and concerns prior to developing a dental treatment and wellness plan. 

Additionally, they offer an elective Wellness Coaching Program that helps patients chart a course for good health and well-being – a preventive care rinse program called “CariFree” that tests and treats decay susceptibility to help patients eliminate the risk of tooth decay, as well as a full-service Dental Hygiene Department that coaches and teaches an easy approach to effective plaque control, keeps dental disease risks and susceptibility to a minimum, and effectively treats early-stage gum disease. 

A proud graduate of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Dr. Friedman served his country following graduation by enlisting in the United States Public Health Service in St. Ignatius, Montana. There, he spent three years as the Director of Dental Services in General Family Practice in the Indian Health Service. At the end of his tour of duty, he returned to the Washington, D.C. area, where he opened his private general practice that continues today. 

Dedicated to enhancing smiles, he remains a member of several professional dental organizations, including the American Dental Association’s Maryland State Dental Association, the Maryland Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Dentists and participates regularly in local dental study groups.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
