Office Hours

Monday – Thursday 7:30 am – 4:00 pm We take patient calls between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm Monday – Thursday. If you reach our voicemail between these hours, please leave your message and we will return your call within 2 hours. There’s no waiting weeks or months to be seen. Our schedule is carefully designed to allow us to spend quality time with each patient. We start seeing patients at 7:30 a.m. We build time into our schedule for emergency appointments and new patient exams. A new patient exam lasts 1 1/2 to 2 hours and our hygiene appointments are scheduled for a full hour. If you must cancel or reschedule an appointment, we require at least 24 hours notice.

Emergency Appointments

If you have a dental emergency during a time when our office is closed, call 410-956-5555 or 301-261-7878 and you will hear a message that provides instructions for contacting our on-call doctor. We know what you’re thinking, but Fridays aren’t for golf! Drs. Woody and Joe spend a lot of time on continuing education, both learning and teaching. Most of their speaking engagements and classes are held in the evenings or on weekends. Our Chesapeake Dental Education Center holds classes here in our office on Fridays and Saturdays as well.
