Personalized Care you can Feel Good About.

We'll give you something to smile about.

Beautiful long lasting results.



Greetings from Dr. Cynthia Sclater, Dr. Rhiannon DeLeon and the Gentle Family Dentistry team in Dunkirk, MD. We are welcoming new patients and look forward to helping your entire family with their oral health. Our mission is to provide superior dental care that is pain-free in a relaxed environment.

We provide our patients with the latest dental technology. Gentle Family Dentistry utilizes laser family dentistry, laser periodontal therapies, low radiation digital x-rays and 3D digital scanning. Our doctors are laser certified, which means they can use the WaterLase dental laser to treat many dental concerns. For some patients and procedures, it is even possible that we will not need to use any anesthetic. 

We are the only dental practice in Calvert County to use CEREC technology for beautiful cosmetic results. Just a few benefits of CEREC technology are single-visit convenience, hi-tech accuracy, metal-free restorations and extreme precision for long-lasting natural porcelain results. We provide all aspects of traditional dental care beginning with the smallest member of your family. We also offer BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® to enhance your beautiful smile. 

Our patients are our "why"...we take the time to get to know our patients on a first-name basis. We care about oral and systemic health, and believe in the mouth-body connection and its importance in our patient's quality of life. We believe strongly in giving back to the community that gives so much to us. We support over 25 local non-profits, schools and organizations in the Calvert and Southern Anne Arundel County communities. We are proud to call Southern Maryland home. -

I have never experienced such sincere and personal attention from a group of healthcare providers. Your genuine interest and concern on our behalf is outstanding to say the least. Thank you to each of you for being wonderful people!


1st class dentistry! Dr. Cynthia Sclater & her staff are all, as good as it gets. All around beautiful place. I highly recommend her.


I had a problem that required immediate attention this week. They fit me in with no problem and worked for almost two and a half hours on me to resolve it. A number of staffers stopped by to say hello and make sure I was comfortable. They patiently suggested several options for a permanent fix and gave me 100% attention even though I was unscheduled that day. I really love all of them for their care and concern.
