If you’re looking for more from your dentist, you’ve come to the right place.
Patient Focused Dental Care
We are, foremost, a patient focused practice. To us, that means we will always center your needs, desires and limitations from the moment you first make contact with our office. We believe that respect and communication are key to any good relationship, and we value our relationships with our patients above all else.
At Ellicott City Smiles, we strive to be a safe environment free of discrimination, regardless of race, age, sex, different physical or developmental abilities, religion, culture, national origin, residency status, sexual preference, familial status, and gender identity.
We also believe informed patients make better healthcare decisions, and are invested in making sure you have a full understanding of your own health needs. We will never pressure you into a decision you don’t want to make. Instead, we will listen to your needs and concerns, and work with you to determine the best treatment options for you.
If visiting the dentist can be a source of anxiety for you, you’re not alone. Millions of people have long and difficult past experiences with going (or not going) to the dentist. At Ellicott City Smiles, we believe that everyone deserves to have confidence in a healthy, beautiful smile. It’s no wonder why we’re known for our respectful care of people who experience fear, panic or avoidance when they consider taking care of their dental needs. If you have these kinds of concerns, we encourage you to let us know when you call, and we’ll discuss options for a more anxiety-free dentist visit. We have many patients who choose to be sedated during procedures, and many more are opting to use NuCalm, an all natural, extremely effective system that brings patients to a very comfortable state of relaxation. If any of these options are of interest to you, please feel open about discussing that with us.

Our Approach to Your Oral Healthcare: The Oral Systemic Health Connection
At Ellicott City Smiles we take a multi-disciplinary approach to oral healthcare. Not only do we specialize in areas like cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, and sedation dentistry, but we don’t just focus on the health of your mouth in isolation. The body is connected from head to toe, from mouth to heart. Therefore, we also take into account how all of your body’s systems can affect your oral health, and vice versa. (Learn more about Oral Systemic Health on our blog.)
Our dentists and hygienists will work with you to create a plan to achieve and maintain your ideal dental health. There is no “one size fits all” dental treatment plan in our office. Your unique needs and desires will inform how we move forward together toward the smile of your dreams.
