The staff at Laurel Pines Dental Group, located on Laurel Bowie Road, has many reasons to be proud of Thomas a'Becket, DDS. A'Becket, who has practiced dentistry in Laurel since 1997, was recently named president-elect for the Maryland State Dental Association. Additionally, in August, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Award at the annual Chesapeake Dental Meeting. This award recognized his many years of professional service and dedication to the profession of dentistry. A'Becket graduated from Georgetown University School of Dentistry and provides general and preventive dentistry, with a focus on restorative implant treatment. When not engaged in professional activities, he finds time to indulge in his other interests, which include landscaping and bowling. Many kudos to this Laurel professional!
