In an effort to help control the spread of the coronavirus, our office will limit appointments to
essential and emergency procedures until further notice.
This decision is in accordance with the recommendation released by the American Dental
Association (ADA) to postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks.
“Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and
alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments,”
the ADA said in a statement Monday.
If you have an upcoming hygiene or non-urgent appointment:
We will be in contact with you soon to reschedule and we will notify you when we are fully
prepared to resume business as usual for all of our patients.
Our phone lines will remain open for your questions and concerns. If you are experiencing
pain or have any dental emergency, please call our office at 301.469.4775.
If you are scheduled for urgent dental care:
If you are scheduled for a procedure such as a filling or root canal, your appointment will remain
unchanged, but we may also contact you to see if you would like to reschedule and have your
treatment completed sooner.
At Super Smile Center of Bethesda we have always followed standard universal precautions
issued by the CDC and ADA to help protect every one of our patients and team members from
the many infectious diseases that we are potentially exposed to on a daily basis. For your peace
of mind, these are the precautions we take EVERY time you sit in one of our patient chairs:
● We wear single-use gloves and masks while treating patients.
● We wear full length sleeves and launder all of our work clothing on site.
● We place instruments after each use into an autoclave (a high-pressure steam oven) to
kill every known infectious organism, including coronavirus.
● We wipe down each dental operatory after each patient visit with a medical-grade
surface disinfectant that kills all known infectious diseases, including coronavirus.
● We either wash our hands thoroughly or apply an alcohol-based compound between
In addition to the above standard measures, we will be exercising a higher standard of infectioncontrol
in our waiting areas, including removing all magazines, toys, and other items that are
difficult to disinfect. And while we love and value each of our patients, handshakes and hugs
may be replaced with an “elbow bump” for the time being.
While we are doing everything in our power to protect you, we also ask for your cooperation in making our office environment a safe one when you visit us. If you have a cough, fever, or chills,
please call our office to discuss whether or not you should reschedule. We will be checking
temperatures on all patients as they enter and anyone with a reading over 99.9 degrees may be
asked to reschedule at least three weeks later as a precaution. Also, to practice social
distancing and minimize the number of people in our waiting room, please show up no earlier
than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment and come alone if possible.
We care about each of you and hope that you and your family will remain in good health during
this difficult time.
