in Ft George G Meade, MD |
My 12 year old daughter had to have 4 baby teeth removed. From the consultation to the oral surgery everything was done amazingly well! She has a huge phobia of needles and Dr. Garden and the staff put her at ease. Knowing we were on a huge time crunch due to her having musical concerts, and high school auditions soon, they tried to accommodate our schedule, and we were cutting it close. Ashley promised to call if she had any cancellations and she did. My daughter is so happy with everything

My experience was so satisfying I am not a fan of the dentist but Dr. Garden and his entire staff made me feel so comfortable. While in the examining chair I was waiting for him to extract my tooth and the tooth was out before I knew it without any pain. I also work with the public and realize it can be difficult at times to keep a smile and a happy attitude ...it came very easy to the ladies I came in contact with and Dr Garden I highly recommend this office to anyone who needs a dentist

Glen Burnie, MD |
Dr. Garden is extremely professional, but at the same time very personable. He takes time to explain everything he is doing and answers all questions you have. I have just finished up having a dental implant and at no time was I in any pain or discomfort. I was very nervous at first, but Dr. Garden and his assistant quickly made me feel at ease. The office is clean and inviting and he uses top notch up-to-date technology. He and his staff are extremely friendly. Scheduling was a breeze.
in Arnold, MD |
Dr. Garden removed all four of my wisdom teeth just yesterday. Procedure only took about 30 minutes, I was not put to sleep, and he had me laughing the whole time. I recommend him to anyone, especially someone who is nervous about getting their wisdom teeth removed. 24 hours post surgery and I don't even need my pain meds anymore I feel great!!

Dr Garden and staff are top notch!
Lutherville, MD |
My 7-year-old needed to have a baby tooth pulled (after Dr. Garden pulled a permanent tooth 6 months prior), and it took us two failed attempts with our regular dentist before we went to see Dr. Garden. My daughter was terrified and near hysterics. Dr. Garden and his staff were fantastic with her. They gave her just enough control that she felt like she was in charge, even though she wasn't. She left the office smiling and happy after having a tooth pulled, all because of their care for her.
in Glen Burnie, MD |
I saw Dr.Garden today to see about getting more implants and he just makes me feel so comfortable and safe and ready to get another surgery by him to get my smile back . YOU HAVE TO LOVE DR. GARDEN AND STAFF .God Bless you all.

I am a registered nurse and had been putting off getting my wisdom teeth pulled for over 2 years, but finally got the nerve to get them pulled. Dr Garden made me feel comfortable and walked me through the whole procedure step by step. He was super fast,which we all can appreciate, with a great bedside manner. His staff was just as awesome and treated me like family, holding my hand,and preparing me for the each step. It was not nearly as scary as I thought and should of done it sooner,call them!

Professional and courteous Doctor and staff.
in Davidsonville, MD |
My primary dentist recommended Dr. Garden. I have had to have extensive oral surgery. I am impressed with Dr. Garden and his staff. I appreciate their attention to infection control and staying on time. Dr. Garden is a personable and explains procedures in easily understandable terms. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his staff.
in Annapolis, MD |
Competent and professional care by the doctor and all his staff. Extraction of teeth is difficult for the patient but all in the office made the experience as pleasant as it could be.
Pasadena, MD |
Dr. Garden and his staff were very understanding of my anxiety and fear. During the consultation they explained every step and on the day of my procedure were amazing. Dr. Gardner placed my IV himself with zero pain and on the first try! I've had many IVs in my life and no one has ever been able to place it on the first try due to my difficult veins.
in Gambrills Md |

Yesterdays visit was for a tooth extraction. Dr Garden and his assistant were very reassuring and relaxed for an excellent atmosphere. All of the procedure and post-op instructions were thoroughly explained. This was my fifth visit to his office and I was totally satisfied as . Thanks to Dr. Garden and his team.

So friendly! So efficient! I have horrible teeth, always have. I've seen TONS of dentists and oral surgeons etc, Dr. Garden was by far the kindest I've worked with. I couldn't recommend him more.
in Millersville, Md |
I am the biggest chicken in the dentist chair! Dr Garden has extracted two of my teeth and started the implant proceedure all painlessly!!!! I cant believe i am saying that, but its true. Love everyone in the office! Everyone who knows Dr Garden says the same things! He will earn your confidence on your very first visit!!!!! Always a good experience
in Severna Park, MD |
Had a tooth pulled today and they added me in as an emergency and not once was I made to feel like an intrusion or that they were doing me a favor, both which I've experienced in a doctor/dentist offices before. I'm cloister phobic and they listed when I explained and stopped when I needed them to. That is the difference between finishing a procedure and me waving my arms around in a dental office and freaking everyone out. Having a tooth pulled and paying for it sucks but go here. Trust me.
in Severna Park, MD |
I had my wisdom teeth removed. Zero pain, great doctor.
in Maryland |
As I needed 4 teeth pulled, I was quite a nervous wreck about my appointment with Dr Garden. Dr Garden and his staff were completely patient and supportive of me during the entire process. I left the office feeling well cared for and not judged for my dental problems. I don't anticipate having to have more teeth pulled, however, if it becomes necessary, Dr Garden is my first and only choice for tooth removals.

Very caring an was persistent on making sure I was comfortable.
in Millersville, MD |
Dr. Garden was great for my wisdom teeth extraction. He and his staff are very professional and did a great job of keeping me calm throughout the procedure. The small things like being able to watch TV in your exam room before the procedure is comforting (I got to watch SportsCenter in the morning for the first time in years). I would highly recommend Dr. Garden for wisdom teeth extraction and other oral surgery needs.
There's no need for any other options if you have Dr. Garden. He has a very friendly and competent staff. He takes the time to fully explain procedures, answers whatever questions you may have and discuss any possible complications. He is always available to his patients.
in Severn, MD |
Professional and friendly in all respects. Dr. Garden's experience is shown in his evaluation and treatment always working around your comfort and no pain in a procedure. I would highly recommend him and all the staff.

Dr. Garden is the BEST. On each visit he has performed flawlessly with absolutely perfect results while being exceptionally accommodating and flexible to the special needs of my MG condition. With a skilled team of assistants his work was always fast, painless and efficient. His friendly disposition expressed a focused and sincere concern toward treating me as an unique individual.
Millersville, MD |
Dr. Garden did a great job with the extraction of two of my son's teeth. The staff was helpful not only when we arrived, but days before our visit. They answered questions in reference to forms and insurance, which were very helpful as well as how the process would go on the day of the procedure. Once in with Dr. Garden, he explained what he was going to do and how it would be done. When it was over my son was a little sore, but happy for the staff and the skills and kindness of Dr. Garden.
in Elkridge, MD |
Great patient treatment! Made my surgery seem like it was going to be a piece of cake and it really turned out to be. Minimal to no post-wisdom teeth removal pain compared to most of the stories I've heard.
in Annapolis, MD |
I got all my wisdom teeth removed and was extremely anxious about it. Dr. Garden made me feel very relaxed and made me laugh to take away from my fear of needles. His staff was very professional and warm, and everything went well. I'd definitely go back again. They make you feel at ease and welcomed, and you're care is the most important thing to them.

I had a tooth pulled and a week later a bone/tooth was still in there and it accessed. I went back to Dr. Garden and he pulled the bone/tooth out and did not stitch me like before; an hour later I had mouth fulls of blood. I went back and he stitch the area. He charged me for the visit and sent me a bill for the balance. I asked Ashley, from the office, if I could pay half this month and the rest next month because I'm out of work and she told me they want it clear up now. After that she wa

Dr. Garden removed my wisdom teeth and later removed a broken molar. I have had a great deal of dental work done over 40 years and Dr. Garden is one of the most professional and skilled doctors I have seen. His staff is well-trained and professional. I would not hesitate to have further work done by him or to recommend him to others in need of serious dental surgery.
in Annapolis, MD |
I needed to have one of my front teeth extracted and a bone graft. I absolutely HATE dental work, so this whole process scared me to death. But, Dr. Garden explained all of my options very clearly and was very empathetic about my anxiety. He made me very comfortable with the entire process. I am still under his care as I will be getting a dental implant once the bone heals and I couldn't be more comfortable with Dr. Garden and his staff. Highly recommend them!!
in Annapolis, MD |
Getting my wisdom teeth removed was not difficult at all. Dr. Garden was honest about the procedure and what to expect during and after the surgery, he made me very comfortable. The procedure was easy -- it was over before I knew it and his staff was great. I've heard horror stories from my friends, but Dr. Garden made it all very easy and as pleasant as something like this could be!
