Very Happy with My Care. I've been a patient of Dr. Gardner's for---wow---fifteen years at least. He always taken great care of me and guided me through a number of procedures from emergency extractions to implants. I trust him implicitly. The staff is great, too. Always friendly, always helpful and always excellent at their jobs. It's worth the trip across the bridge.

StarStarStarStarStar Dental Implant Procedure —    (Patient since 2016)

My overall experience with Dr. Duckworth and his team was outstanding. I felt complete confidence and at ease from my first visit through the final procedure for my implant. That includes molar extraction through final abutment. The procedure was performed flawlessly with little or no discomfort. Follow-up by the office team for scheduling and reminders was excellent. Implants are expensive but you get what you pay for and I believe I had the best.

Dr. Gartner and his staff are a great team. The front desk is very pleasant and even had nice conversations with my wife while I was getting a crown lengthening. Dr. Gartner and the assistant with him were very professional and explained everything including moments where I might feel a pinch with gum surgery. I have very unusual bone structure in my mouth which makes working on my teeth extra complicated and they did an superb job in finishing my professionally and minimal pain.

The dental referral was for a shadow image on an x-ray. The visit was thorough and the diagnosis was a crack in the root structure that was allowing the gum to become infected. The explanation was consistent with what I had been experiencing. and plans are underway for taking corrective action. In all, it was a wonderful experience. I'm glad I came.

StarStarStarStarStar Not my normal visit —    (Patient since 2009)

I was all set for my normal visit. This time I was surprised by the taking of my blood presure. I was not expecting it. I was told that it was high. I usually have it taken twice at my normal doctor's office because it takes me a minute to gather myself when I go into medical type environments. Next time I will arrive early so I can call down before they stick the monitor on me. If I had known I could have prepared myself for the encounter. It just gave me an unsettling feeling. I guess I am just a creature of habit and this was not my normal visit

I think my teeth and gums were cleaned well. However, I was not comfortable with the hygienist. I would actually say that I didn’t feel safe. At one point she held my upper front teeth tightly to push my head up and back. I protested that and that my neck is not strong and she said it would only take a minute and it was hard on her too because she had to bend over. I tried to support my neck by placing my left hand behind it and she told me to remove it. Point being, my comfort and concerns did not appear to be of any concern to her. She didn’t attempt any problem solving.

StarStarStarStarStar Dr. Gartner and Christine are the best —    (Patient since 2007)

Dr. Gartner and his hygienist, Christine are fantastic. I can't give them enough praises. I am very afraid of dentist and they make me very comfortable and make sure I'm not in discomfort. I have had periodontal disease since the late 1980's and still have all my teeth thanks to their great care and home care advice that I follow. Even though they recommend I use my general dentist's hygienist for a least one of my yearly cleanings, I won't let anyone but Christine clean my teeth. She couldn't be more gentle, but thorough.

Been seeing Dr. Gartner and Staff since 1985 at three of his different locations. Staff has changed since he started with two at the desk. And iron fist Jackie, the Hygienist. She was good and I remember her telling me that lost teeth would alter the shape of my face. And back in 1985 I was forty years old. Now I'm not. Check my chart and you do the math. Have recommended the practice to other patients.

I have had a lot of dental work done in this office and this was the first time I had my teeth cleaned here. Emily was so gentle!

Dr. Duckworth and his staff are exceptional!! I was greeted warmly and pleasantly. I didn't have to wait for the doctor. Janine is the Best of the bests . She always puts me at ease. Dr. Duckworth is so compassionate with patients. He listens. He explains everything in a way we all understand. When he anesthetized me I felt nothing.

StarStarStarStarStar I am impressed with their expertise and experience —    (Patient since 2015)

I am always impressed with the expertise and experience of the dental professionals you help me manage my teeth and gums as I progress from middle aged to early senior-hood. Dr. Richard Gartner, Dr. John Duckworth and their team of dental assistants are adept in their skills while remaining attentive to the human dimensions of pain and anxiety. One also gets straight talk which I find refreshing even if I don't always like the news. Wait times are reasonable. The office staff is very friendly and very competent. Top-shelf service does not, however, come cheap--so having good insurance is helpful. Chesapeake Periodontics was recommended to me by my general practice dentist; a recommendation bolstered by being told that many of my general practice dentist's dental assistants go here or their family members do.

I have never been to any doctor that takes the time to sit and explain every aspect of your care.

I would recommend this practice to anyone who wants knowledgeable and friendly care.

I had the privilege to be treated by Chesapeake Periodontics for a tooth extraction. I live in ocean city md and traveled 120 miles one way because Dr Gartner and staff are the best in dental care. My problem was extra difficult because a crown had to be cut off also. After one hour in the chair, my sore jaw was already on the mend. How many dentist's call you at home at dinner time to make sure the patient is o.k.? Dr Gartner did. Truth be told I have numerous dentist's in ocean city, but I would drive 200 miles to be treated by Chesapeake Periodontics.


StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 1981)

First rate care, as always.

Dr. Duckworth evaluated x-rays and examined my entire mouth (not just the area of concern).

His assistant and staff were all very professional, courteous and answered any questions.

I'm always pleasantly surprised with the combination of the friendly atmosphere, the depth of technical competence, and the general air of efficiency that I find with my visits to Chesapeake Periodontics (CP). My general dentist advised me to involve Dr. Gartner for specialized services and I'm pleased that she made such a recommendation. In contrast to so many medical or dental providers, CP is relatively on-time (so the onus is on you to be on time) with respect to appointments. And the quality of consultation and the expertise in execution of dental or gum work is top notch. I have been satisfied with my experience in every appointment - I know I get straight-forward honest appraisals of what the situation is and I receive the best care.

From the time you walk into Chesapeake Periodontics till the time you leave, it is a pleasant and welcoming experience. The dental work is done with great care, expertise, and with a most gentle touch. Dr. Gartner does a wonderful job in explaining the progress and condition of your gums. Everyone there is most concerned about your dental health. I would recommend the practice to any of my family members and friends.

I've been seeing Dr. Gartner since 1986, and I don't want to see any other periodontist. He's skilled, competent, professional and goes the extra mile for his patients. He's helped me enormously, I love him personally, his staff is great, and I'd suggest him to anyone who needs peridontal work. If you live in the Shore, as I do, it's well worth the trip across the Bridge to work with professional, competent and pleasant people. I'm very pleased with the work he's done for me over the years.
