FROM THE Top Dentist

As one of the most highly trained and accomplished periodontists in the Bethesda area, Dr. Eskow takes pride in helping unhealthy patients achieve better overall health by improving their oral health and oral health habits. He does everything he can to make even the most apprehensive patients feel at ease by always breaking down and explaining periodontal and dental implant treatment options in a way that is easy to understand. This enables patients to make informed decisions about their dental and implant health. Most gratifying is building long-lasting relationships with his patients that are built on trust.

Dr. Eskow is a graduate of the University of Maryland where he earned his Bachelors, Masters, and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees. Dr. Eskow went on to Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry where he received his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) in Periodontics.

Dr. Eskow returned to the Bethesda area to teach at the University of Maryland Dental School in the Department of Periodontology. He has remained on the staff of the University since 1976, serving in several roles as an Assistant Clinical Professor, member of the Dean’s Faculty and Vice Chair of the Board of Visitors.

Dr. Eskow founded the Bethesda Dental Implant Center in 1986. For nearly 30 years, his private practice has been devoted to providing patients with exceptional care and personal attention.
