Dentist ProfilesSPONSORED CONTENT
Steven Janowitz, DDS
What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?
Dentistry is the perfect profession for me; I can think of nothing I would rather do each day. What I love most is the ability to develop long-term relationships with patients and having them evidence their confidence in me by referring family and friends. It’s so gratifying to incorporate the latest technological advances into my patients’ care. Using evolving technologies, and with the assistance of my compassionate and highly skilled staff, I enhance and restore beautiful smiles and help my patients achieve the best possible oral health. Dentistry combines my passion for caring for people, my keen interest in science and my delight in continuing to learn new techniques and practices.
How do you mentor and encourage those starting out in the dental profession?
As a member of the Boston University School of Dental Medicine APEX mentoring program, I host dental students for six weeks during the summer preceding their sophomore year. Exposing them to every facet of dental practice, I help them gain a real world understanding of my wonderful profession and get them ready and psyched for the future. I have taught clinical skills to dental residents, senior dental students and dental hygiene students, serving as a clinical instructor at Sinai Hospital and as a member of the Dean’s Faculty at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.
I was honored to be selected as Bethesda Magazine’s Best General Dentist in the Best of Bethesda Readers’ Poll for the third consecutive time. It means the world to me that so many people made the effort to vote.
