To Our Patients and Their Families

We are happy to announce our office is open or all patients.

We have missed interacting and caring for our patients and look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve your dental needs and concerns.

Our staff has always made infection control a top priority and we will continue to do so. The safety of our patients and staff is of our utmost concern.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office
  • Upon arrival at the office for your appointment, please wait in your car and text or call the office to let us know you are here.
  • Please wear your mask upon entering the office.
  • During this time, it is extremely important to be prompt to your appointment as it may result in canceling your appointment and delaying your dental care if you are late.
  • Upon entering the office, your temperature will be taken with a contactless thermometer.
  • We will ask you to use our handwashing stations when you enter the office.
  • You may see that our reception area will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to maintain social distancing between patients.
  • Our doctors, hygienists and assistants will be wearing required PPE, this includes masks, gowns, and face shields. Our front office staff will have a plastic barrier placed between themselves and patients. The entire staff will also be screened and have their temperature taken daily.

The addition of all these procedures and materials are very costly, however, they are essential to the health and safety of our patients and our staff. We will be billing your insurance company (if you have one) for these additional costs (D1999, ADA code).

We are extremely excited and looking forward to seeing all of you again. We want you to know that all of you are a part of our dental family and your health and safety will always come first and foremost. As always, we are here to answer any questions you may have, feel free to call us at 301-926-4408.

Sincerely,

Your North Potomac Smiles dental team.

New Patients

What to expect

We are committed to providing you with the best dental care available. Our New Patient exams include:

  • A sincere welcome
  • A teeth and gum examination
  • A smile evaluation (if you so desire)
  • A jaw-joint and muscle examination
  • An oral cancer screening examination
  • A set of x-rays (one set /year)

We usually, but not always perform a cleaning as well if no other oral issues require any immediate attention. The initial appointment is about an hour.

If on your first visit you are scheduled for an emergency evaluation to address any particular discomfort or dental issue then we will most likely only perform a limited oral evaluation on that day. A comprehensive dental examination will be scheduled on another day as our schedule allows.

Start Here

You can request your appointment using the link below and securely fill out your forms ahead of your appointment directly online as well. We will receive your forms instantly and we will be in touch with you promptly in order to confirm your appointment date and time.

Please fill out your health history as accurately as you can so that we can best serve you while protecting your health. Please bring with you any set of radiographs (x-rays) taken within the past year as well as the name(s)and dose(s) of any medications your are taking.

If you have any questions, you can call our receptionists at (301) 926-4408. We look forward to meeting you and taking care of all your oral health care needs.

Please keep in mind that the doctor has reserved your appointment time slot especially for you. If you are unable to make your appointment, please notify our office at least 24-48 hours in advance so that others who are in need of dental treatment can take your slot. We will be happy to re-schedule your appointment to a more convenient time if need be.
