At iSmile Family Dentistry, we focus on providing comprehensive dental care for children and adults. Dr Gunita Singh and our staff will always greet you with a fine welcoming smile!
Dr. Gunita Singh, voted a Top Dentist in 2021 & 2019 by Washingtonian Magazine, believes in taking a whole person approach to dental care. She believes in making sure she improves the quality of life for her patients, whether it’s relieving their pain, restoring their smile, or keeping their teeth healthy. Getting to know her patients on a personal level is important to Dr. Singh in order to understand their needs and encourage open communication. She is very excited about working with the patients and keeping the fun and patient centered environment so she can continue delivering the highest level of care.
Dr. Singh received her Bachelor of Science degree at McGill University in 2005 and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Maryland in 2009. She then went on to do her one-year (hospital based) General Practice Residency in 2010 at the Lehigh Valley Health Network. That program offered the chance to learn a wide range of procedures from endodontics (root canals), extractions, cosmetics and prosthetic dentistry. Dr. Singh strives to stay up to date on techniques in restorative and cosmetic dentistry through continuing education.
She says, “Bringing a smile to my patients is the most rewarding thing about being a dentist.” Dr. Singh has been working with both adult and pediatric patients, delivering high quality care to families in Bethesda and Gaithersburg.
Dr. Singh grew up in Ontario, Canada and now resides in University Park, Maryland. She likes to do a variety of exciting things when not practicing such as travelling and outdoor activities in the summer, skiing in the winter, and even volunteering for local South Asian organizations. Dr. Singh is an active member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and Maryland State Dental Association.
