Dr. Waddell states that he loves being a dentist because of “the priceless gratitude of seeing sincere smiles on patients who were self-conscious about their smiles.” Dr. Berger seconds this notion and takes deep satisfaction in his ability to “transform a smile on someone who was embarrassed to show their teeth, to allow them to become a confident, vibrant, happy, smiling new person who is proud of their smile.”

The community, in turn, seems to recognize their devotion to their profession. In 1997 and 2000 Baltimore City Paper declared Dr. Waddell to be the area’s best dentist. Meanwhile Dr. Berger was The Capital newspaper’s People’s Choice Best Dentist in 2008, and What’s Up? Annapolis magazine’s Top Dentist in 2008 and 2010.

Of course, both dentists have an educational background that they draw upon daily in their work. Dr. Berger graduated cum laude from the Georgetown University School of Dentistry, and has a Master’s degree from the Academy of General Dentistry. He continues to share his knowledge with the community and is one of the founders and a past president of the Annapolis Dental Study Club. He is also a past president of the Maryland Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Waddell’s credentials are no less impressive. At a young age he was fascinated by science and possessed a great ability to work well with his hands. Today, he finds that dentistry allows him to combine those skills in a way that aids the community. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, where he then went on to study molecular biology. He then received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. Dr. Waddell was elected to Omicron Kappa Upsilon as well as the Gorgas Odontological Society and Gamma Pi Odontological societies. Today he is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry.

Both of these accomplished dentists use their education to bring you the best techniques in modern dentistry. Their practice specializes in general family dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. They are able to provide Invisalign, Laser dentistry, veneers, and implants as well as bonding, crowns, comprehensive orthodontic procedures, and much more. Restorative work is done quickly—often within the same day—to make the process convenient for their patients. Patient comfort is always Dr. Berger’s, Dr. Waddell’s, and their experienced staff’s top priority. Nitrous oxide sedation, laser, and “The Wand” anesthetic system are available, but good old-fashioned tender-loving concern and care are part of their daily routine.

Together, Dr. Berger and Dr. Waddell combine their skills in order to make their practice one of the most illustrious in the area. As Dr. Berger states, the pair loves caring for those in need, alleviating pain, creating well-being, and changing a life by changing a smile. Visit them today for an experience that will leave you smiling—and might even change your life for the better.
