MEET OUR SMILE TEAM
A CARING SMILE TEAM
...JUST A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT
We love our jobs – we really do. The Silberman Dental Group embraces the concept of “patient-focused” because we sincerely care about taking care of your overall wellness. To us, it’s all about gaining your trust. You can trust you’ll receive the highest level of care in a safe environment.
Doing What’s Right
We’re not a “drill and fill” practice. This Waldorf dental team’s primary goal is to retain your natural teeth and provide high-quality dental services proven to last.
We’re an open book! Tell us your questions, fears, and desires and we’ll treat you with integrity and respect, addressing your concerns one by one with sensitivity and compassion.
Fun, Sincere, and Caring
You’ll notice a fun and caring atmosphere. We are perfectionists in the care we provide and love it. It’s a fun, loving environment and we show interest in all of our patients just because we care.
We will NEVER rush you into making a decision you’re not comfortable with. We’ll educate you on what to expect, talk you through the process, and put you in charge of the entire procedure.

Barbara, Practice Administrator | Woman Wearing Many Hats
My husband and I run The Silberman Dental Group as a team. We have been married for 43 years, and I was at the front desk when we first opened in Clinton, MD in 1981. I left the practice when my first child, Joel, was born and returned when my youngest, Lauren, went to college. It is a real pleasure to be interacting with patients again. Some of the patients we see now are the same people who became my husband’s patients when we first opened the practice. Some of our patients I knew as children now bring their children. I enjoy working with the caring team in our office. The team works to complement one another and everyone knows their job and does it well! I feel privileged to work with each member of our team. When not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, taking long walks, and above all spending time with my husband, my daughter, my son when he is in town, and my close friends. My close relationships are my priority, at home and at work. My husband and I are extremely proud of our two children, Joel and Lauren, who should call their mother more often.

Jeni, Registered Dental Hygienist, Certified Dental Assistant
I’ve been in the dental field for over 20 years. I began my career as a Dental Assistant in 1991. After 20 wonderful years as a dental assistant, I decided to further my education and return to school to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. I enjoy educating my patients on the importance of home care and regular dental checkups. The mouth is the gateway to good overall health, and prevention is the key. As a member of The Silberman Dental Group, I take pride in making my patients comfortable in the dental chair. The practice is very family-oriented, and we want all our patients to feel at home. I enjoy working with such a wonderful, knowledgeable doctor and staff. When I’m not at work, you may see me on a football/baseball field or alongside a basketball court cheering on my two boys while they play ball!!

Kerry, Registered Dental Hygienist
As a dental hygienist, I must say I am proud of where I am and who I get to collaborate with. The people here are very supportive, and I am confident that anyone who comes to this office will find this to be true.
Before being in the dental field, I was very involved in recreational and competitive dancing from ballet to tap and everything in between! I still teach dance at a local studio to children aged three to eighteen. Part of being a dancer is appearance and expression, which is why a beautiful smile is important to me.
I have been a dental hygienist for more than nine years with a growing passion for individualized patient care. I received my Bachelors in Dental Hygiene from The University of Maryland, Baltimore Dental College.
In giving back to my hometown, I like to participate in local community events involving free dental care. Outside of dentistry, I have a wonderful time with my loving fiancee, two beautiful daughters, and two playful pups at home.

Natione, Dental Assistant
I am the newest and youngest member of the Silberman Dental Group! I have been in the dental field for a year and a half now. I can honestly say I love everything about my job! I became a dental assistant through study at the College of Southern Maryland and went on to get my radiology license short after completing the program. Although my time here has been short, I am convinced that I work with one of the best dentists in Maryland! Dr. Silberman and the whole team work well together and strive to provide excellent dental care to all of our patients! I am honored to work among such awesome individuals. In my spare time I love to model, spend time with my family, catch up on the latest reality TV, and cuddle with my dog! One thing you won’t catch me watching is a Redskins football game. I know our dental team still loves me even though I don’t have the passion for football! And Barbara says I made a great impression at the interview because Doc hired me even though I have no interest in the Redskins!

Kayla, Dental Assistant
I have been in the dental field for 10 years. My dental career started when I was just 15 years old, in high school. Growing up I always knew that I wanted to have a career in the medical field, but could never decide which path to take. During my sophomore year of high school I applied and was accepted into the dental assisting program at the James A. Forest Career and Technology Center. I then realized the dental field was exactly what I wanted to do! I have such a strong passion for dentistry and love the relationship I am fortunate enough to build with my patients; we have the best patients!
At The Silberman Dental Group we all do our best to make sure our patients receive the best care possible. We will always go above and beyond to make sure our patients’ dental experience is nothing short of great! I feel extremely blessed to work with such an amazing, erudite Doctor and team!
When I’m not working you can find me at the gym or home, spending time with my family, or at Petco with my four legged, fur baby, Lilly! Lilly is a chihuahua mixed with a pug. Kisses, sleeping, and TREATS make her one happy “Chug!” She even has her own Instagram, so go follow her!
"Our patients are like family, and I enjoy treating each one as a special individual."
Sondra, Treatment Coordinator
I work as our Treatment Coordinator. I assist our patients by scheduling their appointments, retrieving their insurance information, and going over individual treatment plans. I always greet our patients with a smile and want to make them feel comfortable and at home. I enjoy catching up with our patients, especially those who have been with us for a long time. I let patients know this is a practice with a family atmosphere and they are part of our growing family! Dr. Silberman and his wife Barbara are always fun and a pleasure to work for. During my time away from work, what I love most is time with my husband and our two boys. I am now also a “Proud Navy Mom” as my oldest has joined the Navy. I love being near and doing anything that has to do with the water or the beach. I am a true blue Dallas Cowboy fan! Dr. Silberman and I have “interesting??” conversations and joke constantly with each other. We both do love our football teams!
"I enjoy helping patients maximize their insurance benefits so they can get the care they need."
Erica, Treatment Coordinator
As Treatment Coordinator, I am happy to assist patients with maximizing their benefits. I will verify dental insurance and pre-authorize any major dental procedures. I am a Qualified Expanded Functions Dental Assistant with my radiology license in the state of Maryland. My favorite part of working with Dr. Silberman is when I receive calls from prospective patients with high dental anxiety. I can sincerely assure them that Dr. Silberman will treat them with the utmost compassion and gentle manner. In my free time, I love spending time with my handsome husband, our two hilarious kids, and our sweet dogs.
Our team looks forward to welcoming you to
