Our Philosophy

Dental Care from Our Family to Yours Since 1924

Promoting healthy smiles is our mission. From the first time we meet, our commitment is to do whatever possible to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Often, this starts with preventive care and routine check-ups. It may expand to include the treatment of gum disease and cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers. Throughout our relationship, form, function and beauty are at the core of everything we do. These factors are critical to optimal oral health, and you can trust us to keep them at the forefront of every visit. It is how we help promote healthy smiles.

A Team Approach
to Excellent Dentistry

The McCarl’s have deep, deep roots in the Greenbelt community – Dr. James W. McCarl was the town’s very first dentist in 1924, and the practice has been in the family ever since! Today, we’re proud to serve the needs of patients and families from two convenient locations and through the collaborative care of five different practitioners, all of whom bring their own unique experiences and skillsets to the table. From the first visit, we want you to realize that you’re in the very best of hands.

Google Plus logo “Always a pleasure to see the McCarl Dental Group. I have been with Dr. Clayton for over 25 years. Before coming here, I was always dreading going to the Dentist. Not anymore. They really make it a very pleasant experience, starting as you come through the door. Use them you wouldn't be sorry!”

Diana N. | Greenbelt, MD

“I have been going here the past 4 years and they are great! Very friendly and gentle hygienists, and the dentists are very thorough and nice. A friend recommended them, as they have been her childhood dentist, and I have been really happy that I chose them. I left a local Annapolis practice that I was unhappy with and have never looked back!”

Jenny V. | Millersville, MD
