Being in a hospital setting, Dr. Winter was on-call for dental emergencies in the hospital ER and Trauma Center. He also had the opportunity to perform full mouth dental rehabilitation cases under general anesthesia in an operating room setting. Towards the end of his residency year, he was able to provide care during the COVID-19 pandemic under the strictest of infection control protocols and brings a high level of expertise to Catonsville Comprehensive Dentistry.
