Meet Gaithersburg MD Dentist Corey Anolik DDS

Dr. Corey Anolik didn’t always know he wanted to follow in his father’s dental footsteps. It wasn’t until he took a job as a dental assistant during his sophomore year of college that he realized he loved everything about the dental field, especially the impact he was able to make on people’s lives. Dentistry is science, art, and human interaction!

In 2006, Dr. Corey earned his doctor of dental surgery degree from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery and was the student co-chair of the quest for care committee. He also participated in a highly competitive oral surgery clerkship. After graduation, he completed a one-year, hospital-based residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he gained experience treating trauma of all kinds while also vastly improving my clinical skills. After his residency, he joined his father and quickly discovered that they work amazingly well together.

Dr. Corey loves learning and earned his fellowship status with the academy of general dentistry in 2013, an honor that requires the completion of over 500 hours of education, as well as passing a rigorous exam. He is an instructor for Patterson Dental in the use of the CEREC machine. He is involved in the leadership of organized dentistry and is an executive board member of the Southern Maryland Dental Society, the local level organization of the American Dental Association. Dr. Anolik is president of the Capitaligners, a local chapter of an international Invisalign study club, and is on the board of directors of the American Academy of Clear Aligners.

Dr. Anolik and his wife, Rachel, have been married since 2007, have three sons, and enjoy traveling, watching a good movie, or finding a delicious restaurant (which she usually chooses, and it’s always Italian). They enjoy trips to the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore or a nice playground where the boys can burn off some energy. His second love is the ocean and enjoys scuba diving whenever he has the chance. He is also an avid Ravens fan, Orioles fan, and New York Rangers fan.
