After graduating NYU College of Dentistry and getting his DDS degree, Dr. Krohn spent 2 years in a community based residency honing his skills. He then established a very successful general dentistry practice for the next 29 years. Driven by the desire to contribute on a larger scale, Dr. Krohn joined the Peace Corps, spending 2 years in Moldova, an impoverished Eastern European country, where he taught health education and established a pain control clinic for cancer patients.
After a fulfilling experience serving a less fortunate community, Dr. Krohn returned to the US with a new vision for his dental practice. Incorporating Fair Pricing, mindfulness, soothing music, sedation medicine and a caring touch, he has redefined dentistry as we know it.

Crowns: A crown, or cap, is a replacement for a tooth after you have had an implant, a root canal, when a tooth is broken, or severely decayed. This is usually takes two appointments. In these cases, a crown is permanently cemented onto the remaining tooth structure.
Dentures: Traditionally, dentures have relied only on suction to stay in place, and for many people this has proven unsatisfactory. Dentures are known to move around while talking, eating, or can just fall out. They can cause sore spots, require yucky denture paste, and worst of all, cause your jawbone to shrink after years of use.
Now, however, our high-tech implants can eliminate all these problems, and give you a secure, pain free solution. With the placement of 4-6 Mini Dental Implants, and corresponding inserts in the underside of the denture, your teeth will snap into place and fit securely until you are ready to take them out. This helps eliminate sore spots, denture pastes, and maintains the health and integrity of your jawbone.
With recent technological advances, repairing, replacing and beautifying teeth has become faster, easier, and less expensive. This can be achieved with minimal to no discomfort.
Implants are revolutionizing dental care, allowing us to replace multiple missing teeth to recreate natural function and esthetics. Mini dental Implants can be placed quickly and easily, And should you need traditional dental implants, even those have become smaller and easier to place.
For many years our medical colleagues have used what is called PRF, which stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin. It is used in many kinds of grafting procedures, and is the ideal material for many situations. What makes it ideal is that it is made out of your own tissue, so there is no chance of rejection. In fact, it is the most natural material there can be, because it is yours. Grafts made from PRF heal quicker, better, and stronger than any other material. All it requires is a small blood sample from your arm, just like going for a lab test. We have the equipment and expertise to do it right here in our office.
At Rockville Sedation Dentistry Plus we use PRF for all our grafting procedures, because there is nothing better, more natural or safer. Your welfare is always our first concern
Dr. Krohn has been using sedation for all of his 30 plus years as a dentist. He has had extensive training, including a 2 year, full time program in hospital-based operating room anesthesia. Dr. Krohn is also a student of mindfulness meditation, which involves integration of focused breathing and purposeful calming of the mind and body. As such, he is dedicated to making the dental experience as comfortable as possible. Using oral sedation, a calming tone and breathing techniques, he prides himself on being the most gentle, painless dentist around.
Unlike conventional forms of sedation, such as nitrous oxide and intravenous sedation (IV), oral sedation directly targets the part of the brain that controls fear and anxiety. To ensure maximum comfort in the hours leading up to your treatment sedation will be prescribed prior to your appointment.
We love our patients, and want everyone that comes to our office to leave with a smile.
