Lawrence D. Singer, DMD
Sadly, Dr. Singer lost his life this past April, 2019. His dedicated team, patients and colleagues, feel a great loss. He was so dedicated to making people healthier through education and sound treatment. Dr. Singer will always be remembered, admired and sorely missed for his Intelligence, hard working ethic and for the love of his work. The practice will continue to treat patients with the same principles and philosophy as always.
Dr. Lawrence D. Singer earned a bachelor of science in Human Development from Vanderbilt University and his doctor of medical dentistry degree from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, one of eight Ivy League Universities.
Dr. Singer held the title of Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at the George Washington University Hospital. His work at the hospital included treating facial trauma patients who had broken their jaws and teeth, treated medically compromised patients under general anesthesia in the OR, and provided emergency dental care to patients admitted to the hospital. Dr. Singer worked very closely with members of the Department of Otolaryngology (ENT: ear, nose and throat).
In addition to delivering care at his private practice, Dr. Singer served as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, instructing doctoral candidates in all aspects of restorative dentistry. He has prepared articles on oral healthcare economics for the Swedish Government at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
I love learning, I love challenges, and this naturally pushes me to continually raise the bar. With full privileges at George Washington University Hospital, I experience all facets of medicine; every experience is a learning experience that makes my patients care that much more complete and better.
Cosmetic dentistry was a strong focus for Dr. Singer and his associates and he invested hundreds of hours in education in this complex area of dentistry. Dr. Singer was the Official Cosmetic Dentist for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders and had been since 2000. Many of these beautiful celebrities may be seen in the Smile Gallery. The Miss DC Pageant regularly consulted with Dr. Singer regarding treatment options to broaden, brighten and beautify the smiles of their candidates. Candace Allen underwent a Smile Makeover in 2006 and was one of the top 10 finalists in the Ms. USA Pageant.

Why does this matter to me?
Earning a doctorate of medical dentistry, along with his continuous training and work in oral surgery, gave Dr. Singer a complete understanding of the entirety of patient health, including how the body relates to the mouth and the importance of oral health to overall well being. If you had a medical condition, Dr. Singer understood the underlying biology and physiology and was better equipped to provide you the ultimate in dental health care and more. His team was always educating themselves and following the same principles Dr. Singer believed in.
