MEET DR. HORNSTEIN, DDS, MAGD
Dr. Hornstein is a Master in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). Less than one percent of dentists achieve this honor, which requires meeting a stringent set of requirements outlined by the AGD. To obtain a mastership, Dr. Hornstein first had to become a Fellow, which requires three years of continuous AGD membership, 500 hours of continuing education (CE) credits, and passing a 400-question exam covering all disciplines of dentistry. Mastership in the AGD requires an additional 1,100 hours of CE, 400 of which must be hands-on courses and 600 of which should be in specific disciplines of dentistry.
Dr. Hornstein was also required to present examples of certain cases completed in his office to colleagues who are Masters. Upon achieving Mastership, he was awarded a Governor’s Citation from the State of Maryland and a Declaration by the State Senate for achieving this prestigious title.

The typical first-time general dentistry visit to Dentistry of Bethesda lasts an hour and fifteen minutes.

We also specialize in helping children and those with special needs, including older patients, so our office offers truly comprehensive general dental care for everyone.
Whenever you smile, people take notice. Whether they notice your stunning pearly whites or a damaged and worn smile is completely up to you. When you receive cosmetic dental care from Dentistry of Bethesda, you choose to show off your best smile.
From patients who’ve developed a cavity despite their best oral hygiene efforts to individuals who’ve avoided the dentist for years only to find that they’re suffering from a lot of wear and tear, Dentistry of Bethesda can help with restorative dentistry care, from simple fillings to full-mouth reconstruction.
At Dentistry of Bethesda, we offer nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) to help you relax during your dental care procedures, including filling placement and root canal therapy. Nitrous oxide has been used by dentists for over a hundred years to provide relief from pain and discomfort and is a proven and safe sedation method.
We’ve made significant improvements in the smiles of our patients. Check out our gallery for examples of some of the smiles we’ve helped to create.
