Dentsville is an unincorporated community in Charles County, Maryland, United States, marked by a convenience store dating from the turn of the 20th century,[1] two cemeteries,[2][3] and adjacent small businesses, including the Dentsville Rescue Squad and Auxiliary founded in 1998 on Maryland Route 6 east of La Plata.
