Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Curtis S. from Chevy Chase, MD (Source: Yelp)


Our family are new patients and had a very positive — actually, enjoyable — visit with Dr. Greenbaum and his capable and friendly associates. We were referred to this practice by our longstanding dentist who retired and highly recommended the group. We concur. They were thorough, proactive, exacting, and carefully followed COVID-19-related safety protocols. Compliments to hygienists Kristi and Sena, to Stacie and Michelle in the office, and to Dr. Greenbaum. The Center team places a premium on communication and this was very helpful. By all means look up this practice and contact them!

First time visit to this practice. Everyone was very welcoming, friendly and efficient. They practiced necessary covid protocols effectively and in stride. Particularly impressed with how thorough Dental Hygienist Kristi was in spite of not using the cavitron due to covid precautions. Pleased that we were referred here by our retiring dentist of 30 years.

Dr. Greenbaum and his staff are always friendly and competent. I went in for a very overdue cleaning (delayed because of the Corona virus) and also needed Dr. Greenbaum to check out why I was experiencing sensitivity with my crown. Precautions were in place with PPE (I was asked questions, had my temp taken and given hand sanitizer, gloves, glasses and a plastic bag to put my purse in). Both the dental hygienist and the Dr. were both covered w/PPE and the reception area staff wore masks and were blocked from me with a plexiglass barrier. Plus, I was the only patient in the office – that made me feel more secure too. I was; however, disappointed that my cleaning was shortened and less comprehensive – no deep water cleaning or polishing was offered due to the virus and the possible spraying but, I understood. The Dr. and his assistant carefully assessed and hopefully have fixed the sensitivity I’d been feeling. Although Dr. Greenbaum is farther away from my home than I’d like and a bit more expensive than other dentists, I’ll continue to make that drive because I always feel welcomed, and taken care of.

Dr. Greenbaum is an absolute gem! I came to him for some cosmetic teeth work prior to entering the Miss Maryland pageant, and he really salvaged my smile. I had four veneers implanted, and also received Zoom teeth whitening. I was concerned about the Zoom because I heard that it can be painful, but it was honestly an easy, painless experience that I would recommend to anyone. I also heard that he has award-winning experience with sleep apnea, but have no first hand experience on that. I also want to say a word about his office location. Dr. Greenbaum’s office is located in an area will a full parking lot, and is aesthetically beautiful on the inside. One of my biggest gripes with dentists and doctors in the DMV area is difficult parking, and his honest is always so convenient and stress free. And a huge thank you to Brenda for always making the check-in at the front desk so easy! 🙂 Definitely check this guy out!

The service was great. I called in for an emergency appointment and they made sure to see me on the day of. I went in for cold sore laser treatment. The treatment was painless and was able to relieve my pain instantly. The cold sores dried off quicker than ever and 5 days later, they are completely gone! I loved the great experience

Jamie C. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


From his office to his staff, everything with Dr. Greenbaum is top shelf!!!! he innerly painless when it comes to administering his procedures and takes care of all my dental needs. from getting a cavity filled to my bonding work, he always makes me feel very relaxed the patient, as does his entire office setting. he also has great dental sleep apnea treatment. Dr. Greenbaum is an excellent professional and I highly recommend him!

Jay G. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Greenbaum was an absolute pleasure to work with! His office is beautiful, and his staff makes you feel at home from the moment that you enter the office. I also really liked his bedside manner. I was having a fairly uncomfortable dental procedure, and get general anxiety to go to the dentist altogether, and he made me feel calm, at ease, and collected throughout the whole thing. I would definitely recommend Dr. Greenbaum to someone else; he’s the best dentist that I’ve ever seen in the DMV!

I went to Dr. Greenbaum to pick up my new appliance for sleep apnea and my experience with Tania was exceptional. She was very professional,courteous and patience with me the entire visit. Tania explained in detail how to properly use,store and clean the appliance. I felt very confident when I left the office. She is the best. Thank you Dr. Greenbaum for having her as part of your excellent team.

Dr. Greenbaum and his staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I’ve seen Dr. Greenbaum multiple times and he always provides an excellent quality of care. Using his latest technology, I was able to preview my smile virtually with veneers and am excited to work with Dr. Greenbaum on improving my smile!

Allison W. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Where do I even begin?! I’ve never been someone who has smiled with teeth in photos, mainly because I have small, chicklet-like teeth that make me feel extremely self conscious. I took the plunge and began working with Dr. Greenbaum on getting veneers. I absolutely LOVE my new smile. They don’t look too crazy or dramatic, nor do they look too white or fake as some veneers have to tendency to do. I was also extremely nervous about the pain factor involved, but discomfort was minimal to say the least. I look forward to continue to see Dr. Greenbaum for all of my dental health needs, as well – this guy is seriously the best!

Franco T. from Fort Washington, MD (Source: Yelp)


I just got a dental cleaning with this guy and he’s honestly awesome! I just moved to the area and found him on Google, and honestly, I have never had someone more thoroughly talk me through what I need in terms of dental work. He also didn’t try to upsell me on stuff that I don’t need. A lot of dentists make it seem like you need all of these extra services just to make more money, but he was totally honest and I didn’t feel like he was upselling me whatsoever. That is the sign of someone who is good at their job because it shows that they don’t need to make an extra buck. Heard he’s really good at sleep apnea stuff too but I don’t have any of that so I didn’t have to see him. Either way, a great dentist.

I needed a dentist experienced in making sleep apnea appliances. Fortunately I found the Bethesda Center for Family and Cosmetic Dentistry and Dr. Greenbaum. Previously I had spoken to staff at two other doctor’s offices. One tried to upsell me even before I had spoken or met w/ the dentist and the other was very clear that she was not going to be helpful with submitting anything to insurance. But when I spoke to Brenda at Dr. Greenbaum’s office there was such a DIFFERENCE. She checked all the boxes: she was professional and knowledgeable and able to clearly answer my questions. When I went in for my appointment Stacy was at the front desk with a big smile to greet me and great music to listen to. I felt so comfortable, and at a dentist office, no less. I was quickly taken into the exam room and met Dr. Greenbaum. Even though he must have had a similar exchange with hundreds of patients, he seemed genuinely engaged in our conversation. He asked me questions and answered questions about the appliance and the process even before I thought to ask them. I feel confident I am in great hands with Dr. Greenbaum and his kind staff.

Rhonda G. from Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Greenbaum is just amazing! He is such a caring and honest dentist. He patiently explained everything that I needed and suggested alternative treatments as well.  He and his staff always make you feel so welcome and at ease from the moment you walk in the front door!  My experience with Dr. Greenbaum has been wonderful and I have recommended him to several of my friends. He is by far the BEST dentist I have ever been to!!

Rutledge W. from Annapolis, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Greenbaum’s expertise in oral devices for the prevention of sleep apnea is extremely evident.  His treatment of my situation has resulted in a major increase in my overall quality of life.  The incredible knowledge and unsurpassed customer service of his support team, particularly Bahar, Stacie, and Brenda, resulted in a very pleasant experience – truly service with a smile.  The complex process of submitting a dental claim on medical insurance was handled flawlessly by Brenda.  I highly recommend Dr. Greenbaum and his team to anyone seeking resolution of a sleep issue.

Wendy S. from Bethesda, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Bernard Greenbaum  for 35 years. He also takes care of my family and many friends. He is the best in his field and is a perfectionist. He and his practice are state-of-the-art. He also continually participates in professional growth seminars and classes. His staff is awesome, including Brenda ,Stacie, Bahar, Chrisandra ,Jana ,and Dorthea. They provide a relaxing, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I have never had any problems with their honesty ,billing or submission of insurance claims. If you are looking for the most outstanding dentist Dr. Greenbaum is the one!

Ruth N. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


Changing from cpap therapy to an oral appliance has made all of the difference in my sleep and my health.  Dr. Greenbaum and his team are great to work with, walking me through each step of the way,  tracking the results and not being satisfied until they’re sure I’m getting the help I need.  I strongly recommend that anyone diagnosed with sleep apnea consider an assessment with Dr. Greenbaum.

Jim S. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Over my years (I am 57) I have gone to six or eight different dentists. For a number of reasons I find Dr. Greenbaum at the Family & Cosmentic Dentistry Center in Bethesda to be the best! I was searching for an alternative to a CPAP machine (for cost, electricity consumption and annoyance reasons) for my sleep apnea. Dr. Greenbaum fitted me with an adjustable dental appliance (like a mouth guard) that immediately stopped my snoring. My wife went from having around 12 headaches a month to none! Needless to say, she is pleased. Prior to using the dental appliance I would need lots of coffee to get through the day. Now I breathe well enough at night that I rarely use caffeine. Two other sleep specialist dentists I had approached did not want to deal with my insurance. Stacey & Brenda at Dr. Greenbaum’s office went out of their way to help me get the dental appliance approved by Carefirst. They were also very accommodating when I had to change an appointment time near the last minute. The technicians Cassandra and Jasmine(?) follow Dr. Greenbaum’s lead in being explanatory, attentive, careful, and cheerful! Athough it is true that specialized dentistry procedures can be expensive, I feel that I have received way more than my money’s worth from their office. One other minor thing: I like the sound tracks that play in background while my dental work is being performed. I guess Dr. Greenbaum and I share what I would like to think is sophisticated musical taste!

What can I say but he is the BEST of the BEST. I went in terrified to the point I had to have so much reconstruction just to be able to eat and this fabulous dentist has the most gentle, kind, understanding manner. His staff is above 5 stars as they become your greatest cheerleaders in helping you through some rough situations to get your smile back!! Dr G is so wonderful he came in on his day that he is closed to take care of me when I was in horrible pain along with his staff to ensure I was taken care of. This is a dentist you have to go see to understand that there is caring gentle ways to handle someone who would break out in hives just at the word DENTIST!! Thank you Dr G and staff for taking such good care of me!

My family of 6 has been going to this dental practice for years. I describe Dr Greenbaum as the kindest man with a keen eye for detail. He is incredibly patient and kind not only to his patients but also very respectful to his wonderful staff. Dr. Greenbaum is conservative yet ensures that you are getting the BEST care in dentistry. All of his hygienist are excellent as well. Highly recommend for regular dentistry but also cosmetic work. He is a perfectionist and expects/seeks out the best results for his clients. One more thing— they always have appointment reminders and work you in when you miss an appt or need something done that arises. We have been very satisfied clients and highly recommend this practice.

Gayle P. from Dickerson, MD (Source: Yelp)


This is such an outstanding dental practice! Dr. Greenbaum is a wonderful, thoughtful, and gentle dentist. Everything is always explained in detail to me. The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team is unbelievable. I’ve been going to them for years and will continue to do so. Every visit is like visiting friends and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Ryan B. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been dealing with sleep apnea for over a decade now. I’ve tried the CPAP mask, I’ve tried accupuncture, I’ve tried natural remedies, you name it. Someone told me about Dr. Greenbaum helping their husband, so I decided to give him a try. I can single handedly say that this doctor has provided me with the best relief to my sleep apnea condition to date. He recommended the OASYS Herbst, which I have never heard of, and has honestly been a true god send. It’s a mouthpiece that has allowed me to breath better at night, but to be even more honest, the thing is really comfortable, so I continue to use it, which provides me with more and more treatment. Don’t know how he is as a dentist – though I’m sure he’s excellent if he’s anything like how he is with sleep apnea – but he has provided me with the best treatment for my condition to date. Highly recommend

Liis P. from Rockville, MD (Source: Yelp)


This place is awesome!!!! Everyone treats you there like family from the moment you walk in. I happened to just walk in there one day and have been “hooked” ever since 🙂 – brought my husband in there too. The office manager Brenda is the heart and soul of this place she knows everyone by first name and keeps track of what you need and when. One day she was not there and I just felt like I had to ask if she was OK – it was just strange not seeing her 🙂 The rest of the staff is just as great – they are attentive and always genuinely happy to see you and most of all they do a great job too. Now Dr. Greenbaum himself really makes sure you understand everything he is doing, he has this calm (almost fatherly) way of explaining what you need and what is going on – you just have to trust him! To me this is important as I generally don’t like the idea of any dental work done – just uncomfortable – this place however helps you relax and feel as comfortable as possible so you will walk out with a big happy smile on your face!

I have been tremendously self conscious about my smile and have been researching top notch, cosmetic dentists for over a year with expertise in porcelain veneers. I’m beyond grateful and blessed I found Dr. Greenbaum- the drive was worth it! He transformed my smile, and I now feel confident in my own skin. Throughout the whole smile rejuvenation journey, he treated me like a relative or family member, providing the highest quality of care and truly listening to my concerns. I can’t thank him enough from my once (no longer) self conscious heart for this positive, life changing procedure. The only regret I have is I wish I found him sooner!! Thank you Margy and Doctor for my perfect teeth!!!! The picture below are the temporaries!

Ameliana H. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


The Sleep Apnea mouthguard that Dr. Greenbaum prescribed to my husband was seriously a gamechanger. He’s been sleeping with a CPAP machine for years now, and this really effected his sleep (and mine haha!) in a very positive way. More importantly, it has significantly improved the overall condition of his sleep apnea. If you’re having sleep issues and have gone through countless sleep studies, I definitely recommend you make an appointment with Dr. Greenbaum. I never knew that there were such strong ties between dentistry and sleep disorders!

Talia C. from Lincoln, RI (Source: Yelp)


My husband has sleep apnea, and never wanted to take care of it because of the mask you normally have to wear. Thank God we found Dr. Greenbaum! He showed us oral sleep appliance that basically looks like a mouth guard, and it has been SUPER effective in curbing both his sleep apnea issues, as well as my sleep because he doesn’t snore anymore. We tried a few consults prior to Dr. Greenbaum and no one could compare to him and his treatments. His office was also very convenient and very well maintained. Going to the dentist usually gives me anxiety however, Dr Greenbaum and his staff were extremely calming and have allowed my husband and I to have different feelings on going to the dentist.

Anastasia M. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


From coffee drinking, my teeth have always been chronically yellow, and traditional teeth bleaching has only moderately worked. Dr. Greenbaum’s in house bleaching formula (idk what it is specifically) took my teeth up pretty significantly in brightness. Absolutely so happy with my teeth now! As a side note, I have not worked with a doctor friendlier than Dr. Greenbaum. His positivity is infectious and he clearly loves the work that he does. It makes me want to give this guy my business. If you’re looking for a great all around dentist, definitely book an appointment with Dr. Greenbaum!

I was diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea a few years back and was unable to deal with the Cpap machine after trying it for a few months. I found the cpap machine to be extremely cumbersome, uncomfortable to wear and even intrusive. The other option I had was the dental appliance and see a sleep apnea dental professional . I am certainly glad I chose Dr Greenbaum for my second option. Back in January 2019 I had a home sleep test , after that I was fitted for the appliance. As of June I can say I sleep much better and feel rested, the snoring has been reduced to a minimum , I feel the apnea has been reduced as well. Dr Greenbaum is extremely pleasant to deal with and truly caring. He will take time to listen to your concerns , discuss and explain to you the issues to be solved in detail and also will provide you with as many solutions and options as he possibly can. His office is very patient friendly and I have found them to be truly caring as well. It’s been almost a year since I first went to their offices and the improvement in my sleep apnea are crystal clear. I am glad Dr. Greenbaum was my choice and without any doubt I can say that I highly recommend him.

Just spoken to Dr G….my sleep apnea test results show improvement beyond my wildest dreams thanks to his fitting me with an oral device to prevent my apnea! Cannot thank him enough and the wonderful staff for all their support and effort to help me crack this problem. No tubes up my nose/masks/blown air for me…just simple dental appliances worn on top and bottom jaws…don’t even know you’ve got them in. Top man!! Highly recommend!

Bill N. from Rockville, MD (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad that I was referred to Dr. Greenbaum. He has the unique combination of being excellent in his field and very kind. He makes you feel as if he has all of the time in the world and you are his most important patient. His staff couldn’t be nicer. Nothing is too much trouble. I actually look forward to seeing them all. How many people can say that they look forward to going to their dentist! I highly recommend this practice.

James T. from Takoma Park, MD (Source: Yelp)


The first word that comes to mind to best describe my experience with Dr. Greenbaum and his staff is “exceptional”. I was suffering from TMJ. The first day of my appointment, Dr. Greenbaum came out and introduced himself. He immediately asked how I was feeling and if I was experiencing any discomfort. Two minutes into the consultation, after observing how my jaw was tracking, Dr. Greenbaum said, “We can fix this”. Next, he used a model to demonstrate how the mechanical movement of the jaw is supposed to function and how mine was working. (Who doesn’t like visual aids). I felt like I was in a PBS NOVA program as he was measuring the contact points for realigningmy jaw to its proper position. He is very exacting and explains in clear detail what he is doing as the action is taking place. My TMJ has been resolved. All those symptoms are gone. The staff are very pleasant, skilled and knowledgeable. There is a feeling of confidence and genuine enthusiasm. Everyone is focused and professional. Their satisfaction is that the patient is getting the very best care possible. I applaud Dr. Greenbaum for fostering this philosophy among his staff. One can sense it and feel it when you enter the office. The specialists that he has recommended have also been “exceptional”. Accolades to everyone associated with Dr. Greenbaum’s operation. Thank you.

Debra U. from Kensington, MD (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Dr. Greenbaum and his staff has been nothing short of wonderful. I had been steered toward another office for a sleep appliance. After they dickered about for 3 1/2 months with insurance, I gave up on them and called Dr. Greenbaum’s office. I had a complicated and time sensitive insurance issue, which Brenda navigated in one week flat. I truly appreciate the efficiency, professionalism and friendliness of the entire staff, not to mention their excellent work on my sleep device. I highly recommend them.

Dr. Greenbaum fitted me with an oral appliance for sleep apnea. In the process, it was necessary to replace a crown. Both procedures were handled skillfully. When a problem arose with the temporary crown, Dr. Greenbaum made a special trip to his office to fix it, although I was willing to wait for his next regular office day. The appliance has greatly improved my sleep problem. I cannot recommend Dr. Greenbaum too highly.

David Y. from North Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


Regrettably, I haven’t seen a dentist in roughly a decade. That was, until yesterday when I first met Dr. Greenbaum and his amazing staff. It all started with preliminary chats with Brenda, an assistant at the front desk. She was FANTASTIC!!! Without her countless hours of diligently coordinating my insurance benefits, I wouldn’t have walked through the office doors. Truly, a great first impression and asset of the practice. As for Dr. Greenbaum, his professionalism and expertise seamlessly integrate with his personable nature to create a relaxing and enjoyable experience. If you’re looking for a dentist, look no further than this practice. Two thumbs up and five stars!!!
