We provide a wide range of full mouth dental implant therapy, serving patients from all 50 states and overseas. Our goal is to ensure a comfortable, seamless, and predictable process for regaining your quality of life. 

Important notice for interested patients: There are no students or residents working at the AIID Faculty Practice. Patient care is provided by the most highly skilled and experienced clinicians.

Our Team

Dr. Saltman is a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon trained locally at Medstar Washington Hospital Center residency program in Washington, D.C., which is a nationally recognized for its unique and cutting-edge training in dental implantology. 

After residency, Dr. Saltman helped build The Center for Oral Surgery & Implantology in Boston and quickly eared distinction as a Boston Magazine “top oral surgeon” within his first year in the area. Dr. Saltman was eager to return to the to DC permanently to join the AIID Faculty Practice and bring his talent and training back to the DC community. By 2023, he was already recognized by Washingtonian Magazine as a “top oral surgeon” in the tri-state area.

In addition to the the radical empathy, patience, and finesse for which he has come to be known throughout his training and career, Dr. Saltman is also loved by his patients and colleagues alike for his keen sense of humor as an amateur writer/comedian and his fine taste in rock music as evidenced by the playlist in his operatory.
