Our Dental Practice Philosophy

At Ronan Freyne, DMD, we strongly believe that a dentist cannot merely treat the teeth of a patient but rather must evaluate and treat the patient as a whole, comprehensively. What affects one part of the human system will eventually influence other parts of the body. Changes in the form or function of teeth, muscle, joints, bone or ligaments are interrelated and must be understood thoroughly in order to perform effective dental treatment. Dr. Ronan Freyne also knows there are commonalities among patients, but no two are the same. Whether you are coming in for a routine dental checkup, need a cosmetic dentist in your area, or are ready to rebuild your smile from root to crown with dental implants, time must be spent understanding your unique health needs, goals and desires. This type of individualized, patient-centric care is what sets our practice apart from the rest.

Dental Checkups
& Teeth Cleanings

For Chevy Chase Families

Checkups and cleanings are two of the most basic and essential tools in dentistry. They allow us to clean your teeth more thoroughly than you can at home, and they give us the chance to catch small dental issues early before they progress to bigger concerns. These preventive checkups are imperative for patients of all ages. By having two checkups and cleanings each year, we’ll be able to give you a healthy smile while saving you time, money, and discomfort down the road.

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

Our team loves being a resource for our patients. So, if you have a question for us – even if it seems small – don’t hesitate to let us know! If you can’t get on the phone right now, that’s okay too. Below, you will find the answers to FAQs.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

After graduating high school, the aspiring dentist needs to earn their bachelor’s degree. Then, they must be accepted to one of 67 accredited dental schools in the U.S., which is where they will complete three years of in-classroom and hands-on training. Once they’ve earned their Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) degree, they can work as a dentist and begin their lifelong commitment to continuing education and advanced training.

As for Dr. Freyne, he earned his undergraduate degrees from Georgetown University before attending the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine and underwent an externship as well as a general practice residency. Of course, his education and training did not end there. To this day, he pursues continuing education and advanced training to learn about the latest techniques and technology the dental field has to offer.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

If you think that you can’t afford dental care, you may just not be familiar with the financial solutions we offer! In addition to helping our insured patients maximize their coverage, we help our patients without dental insurance make the cost more affordable with interest-free monthly payments. If you are interested in learning more about these, you’re welcome to give us a call or ask us any questions you have at your appointment.

Important note: Keeping your teeth and gums healthy requires a solid oral hygiene regimen as well as routine checkups and cleanings. If you skip these biannual visits, then any existing dental problems will continue to progress, negatively impacting your oral and overall health.

Am I Eligible for a Cosmetic Procedure?

Nearly anyone who has fully developed teeth and has great oral health can potentially be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Of course, our team will need to assess your mouth to see if you’re free of any underlying complications that could become problematic in the future, such as decay, gum disease, and infection. Once we’ve been able to address any oral health issues you might have, we can move forward with deciding the best method for improving your pearly whites the way you want them.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost in Chevy Chase?

The cost of dental checkups and cleanings can vary depending on the patient. For example, if you have dental insurance, then there’s a chance that you won’t have to pay anything out-of-pocket! Of course, if you’re simply interested in learning the average price in the U.S., then the answer is $200 to $350.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

To begin with, you’ll need to sift through the factors that you think are important for you when it comes to getting dental care. This is often a combination of several things, including hours, location, credentials, cleanliness, insurance, and payment/fees. You should also figure out exactly the kind of dental treatment you’re interested in or require. Do you want to enhance your pearly whites with teeth whitening or veneers? Are you thinking of replacing missing teeth with traditional dentures or dental implants? Or do you simply need to schedule your routine dental checkup and cleaning? Depending on what you’re looking for, certain dentists might be better suited for your smile goals.

Finally, you’ll want to take the time to get familiar with the dental practice. How do they interact with and treat their patients? For instance, our team at Ronan Freyne, DMD focuses on personalized care, that way our treatments are tailored to each patient’s unique smile. After getting to know more about the dental team you’ll be working with, feel free to read online reviews as well as the team/doctor bios on their website. This is a simple way to learn about each team member’s background and education.

What is the Best Way to Find a Dentist Who Does Dental Implants?

As one of the most comprehensive ways to rebuild missing teeth from the roots up, dental implants are highly popular and it’s important to do some homework before deciding on who to get this treatment from. Firstly, you’ll want to remember that there are two phases to this entire restorative process: placement and restoration. Some practices only offer one of the two stages, meaning you’ll likely have to visit two separate locations to undergo your treatment. However, Dr. Freyne is able to perform the entire process in-house, meaning you won’t have to visit multiple places across town and you can stay with a team you already know and trust.
