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.

Our Advanced Dental Technologies

We are always investing in the latest dental technologies to better serve you. Both Dr. Kodsi and Dr. Graham stay current with the latest in dental care by attending continuing educations courses that go far above and beyond what the licensing board requires. North Potomac Smiles was designed and conceived from the grounds up as a model of what a modern dental office should be. Below are some of the dental technologies that we offer at our practice.

Our dental office is paper-free and completely digital

All of our forms are securely processed electronically from your appointment requests to your consent forms. Every patient has an encrypted digital chart which provides for a very clear and efficient method of communicating information.
Automated E-mail and text-messaging

Automated E-mail and text-messaging

Automated E-mail and text-messaging services are available to help keep us only a click or a phone call away from your smart phone. Your patient account can be checked and managed online and even your bill and insurance claims can be checked online through patient account access.
Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are the most advanced and safest method to detect dental decay as well as many other oral conditions. They offer less than 50% of the radiation of traditional x-rays and offer a far greater resolution. We utilize large Flat panel monitors that are situated in front of the patient to show and educate the patient on any findings we may come across.
Intra-oral Cameras

Intra-oral Cameras

These are small cameras that can take pictures of any particular concern we come across inside your mouth. We utilize them to show you on the flat panel monitor in front of you what the concern is and how to best address it.
Intra-Oral Scanners

Intra-Oral Scanners

These are the latest in state of the art CAD/CAM technologies. While they have not fully replaced the traditional impressions and molds that we have utilized in the past, they are becoming useful in providing accurate digital models to fabricate many restoration and appliances. We use them when taking records for invisalign patients.
Zirconia Crowns, Implant Crowns and Bridges

Zirconia Crowns, Implant Crowns and Bridges

The latest in dental ceramics that provide exceptional strength and esthetics. They have come to replace traditional metal ceramic restorations and are fabricated with CAD/CAM technologies.
The WAND Single Tooth Anesthesia

The WAND Single Tooth Anesthesia

Happy to offer our anxious patients Digital Anesthesia. Doesn't look like a syringe - doesn't feel like a syringe! Takes the fear, anxiety and pain out of dental injections! Now you can relax during the numbing procedure knowing that anesthesia can be done without the dreaded syringe. "The Wand" technique allows us to numb the affected tooth only – not the cheek, lip or tongue which means no more speech impairment, drooling or cheek biting after dental visit. Great for kids!
