Care Philosophy

It's important as a dentist that I spend quality time listening to you as a patient. By focusing on your individual needs, I can more effectively address your concerns during treatment and provide the proper leading-edge care so that you can get the smile of your dreams.

Higher Education for a higher level of care The best part of what I do is seeing the look of pleasure on a patient's face after I've renewed their smile. My goal is to help people look their best and feel their best through advanced dental care. That's what makes all the hard work and time in school worthwhile.

  • BA: Biology, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, 1986
  • Licensure: Maryland

Sharing experiences to provide advanced care Interaction with my peers is extremely important. The first benefit that comes to mind is the exchange of ideas and the free flow of information that has had a direct influence on my practice over the years. The second benefit is the knowledge that something I may have recommended to a colleague has made a difference for a patient I'll never meet. That gives me great satisfaction.

Dedicated to giving you the best care Over the years, I've come to understand what people in this area have come to expect from their dentist. My patients have high expectations and in order to meet and exceed those expections, I have maintained an exacting continuing-education program. In this way, my dentistry always continues to improve.

  • Advanced Training: The Pankey Institute
  • Continuing Education Includes: Esthetcs, TMJ Therapy, Occlusion & Implants, Radiographic Techniques & Interpretation, Provisionalization, Mastering the New Technology in Endodontics, Teeth Whitening Techniques, Advances in Dental Materials, Anterior & Posterior Composite, Direct & Indirect Restorations, Porcelain Veneers, Crown & Bridge Options, Advances in Cosmetic Dentistry, Soft-Tissue Management

Treating you with compassion In a world of impersonal HMOs and dental clinics, it's nice to know that when you visit, you'll experience a level of patient care that's unique to my practice. I use advanced techniques so that your visits will be more comfortable. When you come to Lifetime Smile™, be assured that we'll give you a reason to smile.

Gaithersburg, md |
I have been going to Dr. Urban for over 12 years, and I found him to be a professional and a very caring doctor. He has installed a couple of new crowns and replaced several older crowns. I have had no issues with the crowns he has installed. In fact, I love his crown placement process; when he first places a crown he will use a temporary cement and if after 6-8 weeks there are no issues with the crown placement or underlying supporting tooth he will then permanently cement the crown in place

First overall this picture he has at his profile is 30 years old Second this dentist is insane, as a cosmetics work he will fight with u over what u choose and even that he will give u what he wants and what u choose and like He doesn't use high quality materials for cosmetics work , Insted uses some cheap ones makes your crown look 10 different colors . He made me long ugly crowns ,with 10 different shades in it . I wish I didn't go to him ! Hate his work .

I had been avoiding the dentist following some bad experiences in the past. This office and staff has turned that around. I LOVE the staff here. They are attentive and explain everything as they go. They are patient and caring.

Great doctor. Very understanding and patient.
in Largo, MD |
My experience here was great.. I'm very fearful of dental offices, but the doctor and staff really made me feel at ease. Carolyn really helped me understand my insurance and has been pleasant every single time I've come back. When I have to see Dr. Urban, I no longer feel anxious.. I love my visits. It's like I've been coming here for years. They treat you like you are their only patient.
