Dr. Michelle Snyder, Washingtonian Magazine 2019 Top Dentist

Dr. Snyder grew up in a small town in northwest Michigan.  From an early age, she impressed her parents with her ability to put together puzzles quickly- the first of many signs she was destined to be a dentist.  In the fifth grade, her best friend had a loose tooth that would not come out and “Shelly” (as Dr. Snyder was known during her youth) asked to wiggle it as she was always up for a challenge.  Sure enough, the tooth was out painlessly in a jiffy.  Soon a number of her friends, who did not like pulling out their own teeth for one reason or another, began asking her for help pulling their teeth out as well.  Sharing her new found status as “class dentist” at the dinner table with her family, her father suggested this would be a great profession for Michelle who had previously stated she wanted to be a doctor or the first female president of the United States.  Over the years, her love of science and art became apparent and dentistry became her destiny.  Unwavering in her choice of profession since the tender age of 11, Dr. Snyder worked diligently to excel at school.  She graduated as Valedictorian of her high school class and moved on to the University of Michigan to pursue her dreams.  After graduating from   U of M with a degree in Neuropsychology, she received her D.D.S.  from the University of Maryland Dental School in 2007.

Over the past twelve years, Dr. Snyder has honed her skills as a dentist working the majority of the time in Downtown Washington, DC.  She has taken over 500 hours of continuing education on all aspects of dentistry.  Most recently, she has completed a Mastery course in treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea with dental appliances through the American Association of Dental Sleep Medicine and is designated as a qualified dentist by the highly respected association.

Dr. Snyder loves being a dentist.  She is passionate about helping patients achieve optimal oral health through educating and encouraging them in all aspects of dentistry.  She has been nominated by specialists in the area as a general dentist they would send a family member to and recognized as a Washingtonian Top Dentist for the past four years.  Patients love Dr. Snyder’s thoroughness and kind demeanor. She treats patients like family. Her moto is “Quality Care begins with quality caring” and it shows. Isn’t it time you experience that sort of care for yourself? Feel free to make an appointment and ask for Dr. Snyder.

Dr. Snyder lives in Rockville with her husband and young son. Outside of the office, she loves spending time with family and friends, cooking, practicing yoga, golfing, and skiing.  She especially cherishes vacation time spent with family on Long Beach Island and the amazing beaches of Lake Michigan.
