Dr. Meredith Esposito

Dr. Meredith EspositoDr. Meredith Esposito opened the doors to her dental office, in Arnold, Maryland, on June 1st 2008. As a mother, wife and dentist, she brings the patience and compassion necessary to deal with the challenging needs of your entire family. In 2006, 2008 and 2010 she was named one of the area’s top dentists in a peer survey published in What’s Up? Annapolis Magazine. In 2010 and 2013 Chesapeake Family Magazine named her one of their “Favorite Dentists.” But most importantly, she is known for getting even the most apprehensive patient to relax in her chair.

She has completed several hundred hours of advanced education on cosmetic dentistry, implants, and TMJ through such places as the Dawson Institute for Advanced Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists. Her year long residency at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA allowed her to work with some of the top endodontists in the country.

Dr. Esposito graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2001. She moved to Annapolis in August 2002 and has been in general practice ever since. She has had the unique opportunity to work in several different offices that ranged in focus. She brings her experiences from both cosmetics and pediatrics to mold what she thinks is the ideal family practice. She thanks the love and support of her wonderful husband, Joel, and the encouragement of a terrific group of dentists in the area. Originally hailing from Northern New Jersey, she now lives in Annapolis with her husband, a robotics professor at US Naval Academy(Go NAVY!), her son John and daughter Abigail.

Dr. Esposito is a member of the Advanced Implant Study Club. It is made up of about 25 dentists and lab technicians that are committed to implant dentistry. They meet twice yearly to confer on difficult cases.
