Kentland (Kent Village) is an unincorporated community and former census-designated place in Prince George's County, Maryland, in the United States within the Landover census area.[1] Kentland is served by the Landover Metro Station (orange line), which is located just north of the community, across Landover Road.

The former CDPs of Landover, Dodge Park, Kentland, and Palmer Park, defined as such by the U.S. Census Bureau in the 1990 U.S. Census,[2] were consolidated into the Greater Landover CDP as of the 2000 U.S. Census.[3] This amalgamated area was renamed the Landover CDP as of the 2010 U.S. Census.[4]
