Have patients, it is a holiday weekend (in America) and not everyone logs on every day.

 

I am not to well versed on fish, but enchodus looks similar.

Fossils?

Can you tell us the area that you found it and the the size of the tooth

The tooth is about a centimeter long- found in miocene material along the Potomac river in Virginia.

Since the cliffs there are Miocene Calvert Formation, enchodus is ruled out. Not really sure. It would help if we could get some better, more in focus pictures from all angles.  

But I am thinking along the lines of a Hake; something in the family Merlucciidae.
