Indian Falls Dental Center

Meet the Dentists


Dr. Dave founded Indian Falls Dental Center at its present location in North East, Maryland in 1990, after having already established himself in the Upper Chesapeake area for fifteen years, practicing in Elkton and Chestertown.

His vision was to bring together a staff of friendly and talented, long-term contributors interested in providing exceptional dental care in a comfortable and personable environment.

A Marylander all his life, Dr. Dave was born in Frederick County and graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park. He went on to earn his DDS degree at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in Baltimore.

Since graduation, he has made continual post-doctoral training an absolute priority, studying extensively under the luminaries in the field, from Key Biscayne, Florida to Seattle, Washington, and many points in between.

Dr. Dave is well respected within the community and was recently nominated to serve on the Board of Trustees for Cecil College which is now partnering with the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. He is delighted to have the opportunity to serve the residents of Cecil County and considers it a wonderful place to live and practice.

In his spare time, Dr. Dave enjoys spending time with family (he has been blessed with a wife of more than 30 years, four delightful children, and even grandchildren now). He also enjoys reading, exercising, being outdoors (ie. kayaking, biking, running, etc.), home maintenance, playing some music and teaching Sunday school at Grace Bible Chapel, in the Rising Sun area.

In June 2008, Indian Falls Dental Center welcomed Cecil County native and Rising Sun High School graduate Dr. J. Adam Price to the practice.

While studying at the University of Maryland Dental School, where he earned his DDS degree, Dr. Adam was awarded several top honors including the Harry B. Schwartz Award, which is given to the senior dental student who performs the best in fixed partial prosthodontics (bridges). He was also inducted into the Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontic Society for outstanding ability in fixed and removable prosthodontics and earned recognition for his talents in treating persons with disabilities.

Since graduating, Dr. Adam has continued to seek out the best dental training possible. He has studied at the world renowned Pankey Institute and as a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, has spent a considerable amount of time learning from the best dentists in the world. Some notable master dentists he has had the opportunity to study under include:  Gordon Christensen, Irwin Becker and John Cranham.

Dr. Adam feels honored to be able to work alongside Dr. Dave at Indian Falls Dental Center and hopes to serve the community where he was raised for years to come.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Adam’s interests include classic cars, tennis, playing guitar with his church’s worship team and spending quality time with his wife and two children.
