He believes in providing a friendly atmosphere where gentle, knowledgeable dentistry is performed and where no question is unimportant or concern too small. He believes in being there for his patients 24 hours a day and encourages emergency calls at any time.

His general practice residency was at the Children’s Hospital in Baltimore where he also toured University of Maryland Dental School, University Hospital and Johns Hopkins Cleft Palate Clinic as part of the Department of Community Dentistry of Baltimore.
Dr. Woods has advanced training in dental surgical techniques, mini dental implants, relaxation dentistry, Invisalign® and cosmetic techniques.

He also served as Chairman of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area of WISE, teaching people how to run their businesses ethically and profitably.
