Dr. Gerald Marlin

Simply Radiant, Simply Natural

Dr. Gerald Marlin is a leading specialist in implant, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. One of the only prosthodontists with an on-site lab, Dr. Marlin has been voted “Top Dentist” by his peers for more than 20 years in a row in Washingtonian Magazine’s annual “Best Dentist” survey, and is considered the most experienced prosthodontist in the D.C. area.

Your Dental Consultation

Most often, you will have a separate consultation appointment to review our findings, in detail, from your initial examination. During the consultation, we will review your existing condition and present all available treatment plans. With the aid of digital images, we will demonstrate how new dental technologies may benefit you in your choices of treatment.

Consultations are scheduled at the end of the day to allow sufficient time to address all of your questions and concerns. Dr. Marlin will sit with you to discuss the end result and how those changes will affect your mouth, smile, and overall health and appearance. You can ask questions, have procedures clarified, and ensure that you will be comfortable with any work that will be performed.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

Your Referral

As a prosthodontist, Dr. Marlin works with other specialists and/or general dentists when providing treatment. While many of our patients are referred to us by other practitioners, many of our patients refer their family or friends.

We recognize that referrals are a sign of trust and confidence in our practice and our work. We appreciate our patients’ and other dentists’ confidence and will do everything in our power to continue to earn your trust.

A professional referral is not required to schedule an appointment with our office.

Problem Solving and Coordination of Treatment

In addition to handling simple dental needs, we are often called upon to problem solve more challenging cases, such as complete smile makeovers. Should the services of another specialist be required or if we are working with your general dentist, we will assist you with the coordination of your treatment with the other practitioners.
