On May 7th, 2020, Governor Larry Hogan lifted the “Stay at home” order and allowed us to return to provide dentistry for our patients. We are excited to see everyone again. As you have already known, cases for COVID-19 are still relevant. We have been working diligently to improve our services and protocols to help prevent the spread of the disease and to protect our team, our patients, and our community. We have resumed regular appointments with the dentist and modified hygiene appointments. The following protocols will be carried out indefinitely:
Advanced Registration for New Patients - Please use our Online Registration Form.
Pre-Appointment confirmation calls - to asses any changes in your health
'In-Your-Car' waiting: - Please call us when you arrive and remain in your car until its okay for you to enter the office.
