By providing comfortable, compassionate dental treatment, Dr. Gilliam seeks to help erase the stigma of pain that is typically associated with the dental profession one patient at a time.

After proudly serving his country in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, Dr. Gilliam, a decorated Marine Corps veteran, received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He went on to attend Howard University College of Dentistry where he further cultivated his deep-seated interest in dentistry, developed a mastery of advanced dental techniques, and fostered a true understanding of the dental profession and its ever-changing nature.

Dr. Gilliam, a native of Freeport, New York, now resides and practices in Takoma Park, MD where he provides expert level dental services that range from preventive care to cosmetic and restorative procedures. Dr. Gilliam’s ADA, ADEA, MSDA and NDA memberships and his commitment to studying current trends in the field of dentistry do much to keep him abreast of new technologies and techniques. This knowledge enables him to ensure that every Confident Smiles patient has access to the very best treatment options at all times.

When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Gilliam enjoys snowboarding, speaking to college students interested in entering the dental profession, participating in community service efforts with his fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha, and watching Game of Thrones. While he enjoys these activities, nothing brings him more joy than seeing the wonderful smiling faces that enter his office daily!
