After attending the University of Maryland at College Park, Dr. Fatemi received his doctorate from the Columbia School of Dental & Oral Surgery at New York. He has since taken many continuing education courses, including those in orthodontics, TMD (facial pain, headaches) therapy, dental implants & pediatrics. He also attended the prestigious Pankey Institute in Florida, where he focused on occlusion (bite) & its relationship to TMD & muscle problems in facial-pain patients. Here he developed a patient-centered treatment philosophy geared toward preventive dentistry to avert uncomfortable dental problems & promote patient health. The doctor has completed a residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) at Columbia University's School of Dental & Oral Surgery in affiliation with New York Presbyterian Hospital. He also undertook two years of continuing education in implant dentistry & one year of intense training for IV sedation at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. Dr. Fatemi is a member of the American Dental Association, the Southern Maryland Dental Association the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology & the Academy of General Dentistry. He is also a fellow & member in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Dr. Fatemi was awarded a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, an honor that is bestowed upon very few dentists, by taking over 500 hours of course work & passing a rigorous exam. The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is a professional association of more than 37,000 general dentists dedicated to staying up to date in the profession through continuing education to better serve the public. Founded in 1952, the AGD has grown to become the second largest dental association in the United States, & it is the only association that exclusively represents the needs & interests of general dentists.

Our Office

Our concern for the safety of our patients was the most important feature in the design of our newly built dental office, which is equipped with the latest dental equipment & software available. We are a fully digital, chartless office where Dr. Fatemi can access the patient’s records remotely & review treatments, answering emergency calls while looking at the patient’s radiograph. These features greatly enhance our ability to better help our patient maintain their dental health.


Our Technology

Digital Panoramic X-Ray Machine
Digital Panoramic X-Ray

Emergency & Affordable Dentistry - Fatemi Family Dentistry - in South & Southern Maryland, Gaithersburg, Lexington Park utilizes state-of-the-art dental technology that makes this practice truly unique. Digital radiography provides us with an accurate view with almost 90% less radiation exposure to our patients, & we can often e-mail the patient’s radiographs in case of referrals or out-of-town travel. Also, digital photography enables us to take dental pictures that are extremely accurate (up to 7 megapixels). These photographs aid Dr. Fatemi in viewing the dentition & oral environment in a more detailed manner, giving him useful records of before & after treatment views. In addition, our utilization of one of the latest inventions in the dental field, DIAGNOdent®, allows the dentist to find cavities by using a special laser beam. This laser will pinpoint any hidden cavities, telling Dr. Fatemi the severity of the cavity before he starts the repair process.
