Dear Friends and Family of Silver Spring Periodontics,

It is with deep sorrow that we regretfully inform you of the untimely passing of Dr. Craig Gayton. As patients of Silver Spring Periodontics, your support and friendship has always been valued and greatly appreciated. That will continue to be important through this time of transition. Our commitment to your care and treatment remains of the highest importance to us. Many have had the opportunity to meet Dr. Duane Bennett, our associate Periodontist, who has been with us since 2017. He will continue to provide the same quality care of which you’ve become accustomed. We ask for your thoughts, prayers and patience with and for not only Silver Spring Periodontics, but the entire Gayton family.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please call Vanessa Graham at 301-681-4812 or email her at v.graham@silverspringperio.com.

Why should I choose a Periodontist?

Did you know that the primary cause of tooth loss in adults 35 and over is caused by periodontal (gum) disease, and that it may be preventable? Our doctors and staff will work together with you to evaluate your daily oral hygiene practices, and provide treatments that will benefit your oral and physical health.  Now more than ever periodontal health is understood to be important for you and your family’s over all health.   Emerging evidence demonstrates links between periodontal disease and other health problems such as diabetes, respiratory disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and preterm, low birthweight babies.
