Medhat Ghannam, DDS
My passion and excitement, as a dentist, is derived from being able to provide insight and understanding into the root of each patient’s dental concerns. Often these issues have gone undiagnosed or have been neglected, patched up, or left untreated, which has led to serious problems. I am happy when I’m able to map out a successful plan to remedy these problems and set the groundwork so they do not reoccur.
Many patients enter our office feeling hopeless or lost with regards to their oral health, after having experienced failed attempts at care from other practitioners. I take pride in helping these people through their negative experiences and having them leave empowered, with knowledge and a clear path to oral and overall health.
Many of my patients travel from out-of-state to be treated here. I love and cherish the trust and loyalty these people have in me and our team. I treat all of my patients as family and ensure they receive the excellent care they deserve.
In constantly striving for excellence, I am able to provide a wide range of dental services within a few short visits. This ensures my patients get back to enjoying what matters most: Their Health and Their Lives!
I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) at the University of Maryland, Baltimore Dental School. I then completed a hospital-based residency program at the Baltimore Veterans Affairs Hospital.
Additionally, I served in the Oral Medicine and Pathology Department at the Greenbaum Cancer Center in Baltimore and in the Oral Pathology Department at Johns Hopkins University, also in Baltimore.
Since completing dental school, I have attended numerous continuing education courses, pursuing dental excellence and striving to master my craft. With my passion to advance the art and science of dentistry, I am able to serve my patients by meeting all of their needs here in our office, in a relaxed and family-oriented environment. In doing so, I provide continuity of care and treatment, for the most effective, pleasant experience and outcome.

Beyond the Practice
My wife Jen and I have our hands full with our four children: Moussa, Caleb, Sophie, and Salma. When I am not in the office, you’ll usually find me with my family, often on the soccer fields as I cheer for my children and their teams!
