Your Local Community Family Dental Practice

Get to know us

WHO WE ARE

We are a single doctor owned dental practice who loves our Maryland metropolitan community in all its diversity. We have served the region for over 10 years and have developed meaningful relationships and friendships with many of our patients all along the way.

We value and respect all who walk through our doors, from young to elderly, from short to tall, from the talkative to the taciturn and everywhere in between. Both the Kentlands and Aspen Hill are blessed with a strong sense of community spirit and we are proud to contribute to it, and to always embrace a spirit of inclusivity, kindness and service for every culture and person.

Our office is a comfortable and modern facility that uses the latest technology and techniques to make your dental experience as positive as possible. Good technology doesn't replace great people though; that's why the secret ingredient in our office will always be the people we work with. We want to make sure you are treated with a joyful spirit, a kind manner, and the knowledge that we care about every patient.

Thank you for being YOU! We look forward to seeing you soon.

A little background of Dr. Ponraj: He is a Montgomery County native, and was born and raised in Maryland. He moved to California to complete his undergraduate work at Pacific Union College and then received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Loma Linda University in 2008. Upon returning to Maryland after receiving his DDS License, Dr. Ponraj has been an active dentist in the local Virginia, DC, and Maryland communities. In October of 2014 Dr. Ponraj began his practice ownership by taking over for a retiring dentist at the Plaza Del Mercado location in Silver Spring, MD. Over the past 4 years Dr. Ponraj has updated and grown this practice. In October of 2017 Dr. Ponraj continued his rapidly growing practice by taking over for another retiring dentist in the Kentlands Market Square location in Gaithersburg, MD.

Dr. Ponraj believes in providing quality care in a personable, family friendly environment. He enjoys seeing families from little kids to older patients, and all ages in between. Dr. Ponraj prides himself on getting to know every patient who comes into his offices and meet their dental needs. He is looking to update and improve on the quality of dental service provided at both locations and appreciates any questions or concerns you may have about past or future dental needs.

  • review rating 5  I was looking for a new dentist and Dr. Ponraj and his team at Bel Pre Family Dental have been amazing. From the moment I enter their office, they provide an inviting experience that put me at ease immediately every visit. I went because I had some tooth pain and needed the relief ASAP. Dr. Ponraj tended to the matter with no issues (Side note: I have needle phobia and I didn’t feel a thing….I’m serious...this is not an exaggeration). I’m also self conscious about my smile and Dr. Ponraj was highly professional and compassionate while explaining the potential treatment plan for my smile. My original intent was to deal with pain, but Bel Pre Family dental has become my new home for dental services.
