General Dentists & Cosmetic Dentists located in La Plata, MD

About the Practice

The Wilhelm Dental Group is a family-owned and operated dental practice located in La Plata, Maryland. It is a completely modern practice that’s been providing the highest quality dentistry available to residents of Southern Maryland since 1962. 

The Wilhelm Dental Group is full of history, with more than eighty years of dental excellence located at 807 Charles Street. Their little, round, red-brick building, designed specifically as a dental office, has been a fixture in La Plata, Maryland, since 1955. John Wilhelm, DDS, began providing dental care there in 1962, with his son, Eric Wilhelm, DDS, joining him to practice the art and science of dentistry in 1989. 

What sets The Wilhelm Dental Group apart is their approach to patient care. As a multi-generational family-owned business, the practice knows how to truly provide compassionate and personal services. They see every patient as a unique individual, not just a number for insurance purposes. The dentists and staff know that there’s no one-size-fits-all treatment, and they’re constantly tailoring their methods and approach to best work with their patients’ unique needs, preferences, and smiles.

The Wilhelm Dental Group also believes that a happy patient is an informed patient. The team takes their time to educate their patients on their conditions and treatment options, collaborating on treatment plans that make everybody happy. They also know that the best results come from using the best equipment and always stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the technology used in their services. 

The days of working with the same dentist or dental practice from pediatrics through geriatrics are unfortunately fading, but The Wilhelm Dental Group works hard to keep that light shining. Amongst your numerous dental choices, the family-owned practice at The Wilhelm Dental Group hopes to welcome you into their dental family. 



Our practice has been family-owned and operated since 1962. Dr. Eric Wilhelm is a third-generation dentist and is happy to welcome you to the The Wilhelm Dental Group family.
