Columbia Smiles Family Dentistry welcomes you to a New Year and wishes you much happiness and health in 2020. We want to especially thank all of you for voting for us again and allowing our office to achieve Honorable Mention in the 2019 Best of Howard survey. It has given us great pride and humility to note that in the past 30 years our office has been awarded 19“Best of” and 6 “Honorable Mention” distinctions. We have been blessed to have a consistently loyal and extraordinarily talented team, as well as the extreme good fortune of an appreciative patient family.
Our 2019 letter introduced you to several new members of our Columbia Smiles team. Since that time Lauren Peebles has also joined us as our Scheduling Coordinator. Lauren is the smiling face that greets you when you first come into the office. As our “chess master” of the daily patient appointments she, many times, is the first pleasant voice your kind referrals of new patients will hear.
Yes, we are accepting new patients! We have additional treatment days offered by Dr. Lisa Pyun to accommodate more appointments. We are always most appreciative of your “spreading the word” about Columbia Smiles and allowing us the opportunity to provide dental care to your friends and family members.
Many of you have noted some of our newer technology enhancements, one of which is our ability to do 3-D digital scanning in the planning and delivery of our crown and implant treatment services. We are in the process of updating all of our computer hardware and software, which highlights in-office patient education capability for your benefit. Dr. Halpern is specifically working on these areas as well as additional practice projects while still delivering direct patient care on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We are very excited about launching our new 2020 website, which includes our new logo. As always, we welcome your feedback as you notice the changes as the year progresses!
We have been most appreciative of your understanding regarding our hygiene scheduling. Through the fantastic volunteer efforts of the local hygiene community, as well as our having Erin Sperco seeing patients as a part-time hygienist, we have been able to provide you with continued excellence in hygiene services.
As always, we are thankful for the privilege of being your oral health care providers, and look forward to seeing you soon!
