Dr. Peter McConnell, DDS
Dr. McConnell was born in Kinnelon, New Jersey, and attended a private boarding school – The Peddie School in Princeton – during his high school years. He received a full athletic football scholarship to West Virginia University and was a member of the winning 1975 Peach Bowl Team.

Graduating cum laude from West Virginia University with a degree in Animal and Veterinary Science, Dr. McConnell continued his education in Morgantown by attending the West Virginia College of Medicine and Dentistry, earning his DDS in 1983.
He has more than 35 years of experience. During that time, he has built a very loyal and experienced team of dental professionals, who have been working for him for many years.
His commitment to excellence is obvious in that Dr. McConnell is one of the few dentists in the Maryland area using a laser to practice dentistry. As you would expect from such a dentist, his office is filled with state-of-the-art equipment. He is proud to receive recognition from “Consumers Checkbook” magazine for the past several years as one of the Greater Washington, D.C., area’s top dentists.
Dr. McConnell is married and the father of four children. He enjoys playing golf, skiing, traveling, and spending time with his family.
