There’s a lot to think about when choosing a dentist. Do the services offered line up with your dental needs? Are you comfortable with the doctor’s level of experience and expertise? Most importantly – will you be treated with the respect and concern you deserve?
At the dental practice of Jennifer Sokolosky, DMD, we’re proud to offer comprehensive services to address a wide variety of your oral health needs. Dr. Sokolosky and our team are committed to the highest standard of dentistry to ensure that you receive the best care possible in a setting where you feel comfortable and welcome every time you visit.
When you visit our Ellicott City dental office, Dr. Sokolosky and our team focus completely on you, your oral health needs, and your comfort. You can be confident about your dental care, knowing that we always focus on your concerns and take the time to answer your questions fully.
Your Family’s Oral Health
We’re pleased to provide exceptional dental care to all members of your family. Our team loves working with kids, and we’ll take our time with your little ones so they know they’re completely safe with us. Starting a child with a positive view of dentistry is one of the most important jobs we have to do!
Staying current with your appointments for routine exams and professional cleanings is the best way to minimize the risk of potential dental problems. However, if a problem should occur, we’re here to help. We’ll work together to develop the best plan for treatment that will get your oral health back on track.
Whatever problem you’re experiencing right now, we’re ready to help you achieve your goal of a perfectly healthy smile. We can restore a damaged tooth with fillings or dental crowns or replace missing teeth using dental implants or fixed bridges.
Sleep apnea is another debilitating problem that can severely impact your life. It’s critical that sleep apnea be treated because aside from being annoying, it can also impact your physical health. We’ve found that, for some people, an alternative to a cumbersome CPAP mask is a simple oral appliance. Dr. Sokolosky will coordinate with your physician to make sure we find the healthiest solution for you. Our office is approved for medical billing for our sleep apnea devices.
Each option we offer has advantages and disadvantages, depending on your needs. Dr. Sokolosky will explain possible treatment plans and answer all your questions so you can make decisions about dental care that make sense for you.
Sedation Dentistry for Dental Anxiety
At our Ellicott City dental office, we understand how prevalent dental anxiety is among millions of Americans. We specialize in helping patients feel comfortable and relaxed in a dental setting. For patients who need additional support feeling stress-free, and at ease, we offer sedation dentistry to melt away fear and anxiety.
Sedation dentistry can help nervous or stressed patients completely relax, which allows Dr. Sokolosky to complete her dental procedure without resistance from the patient. When there is no push back, your Ellicott City dentist can work quickly and get you out of the dentist’s chair as soon as possible.
Many dental procedures use local anesthesia to numb the treatment site, but for procedures that don’t require a numbing effect, we offer nitrous oxide to keep patients calm. Some patients have a strong gag reflex, which makes dental work difficult, this can be easily remedied with sedation dentistry.
If you or anyone in your family need a little more care and attention when it comes to oral health procedures, please let anyone on our welcoming dental team know prior to your dental appointment.
Making the Most of Your Smile
Many people would say there’s something they’d like to change about the appearance of their teeth. We’re pleased to offer options that help address a variety of cosmetic dental concerns and help you achieve your goal of an attractive, healthy smile.
If you’ve been putting off treatment for a misaligned smile (crooked or crowded teeth) because you don’t want to spend a lot of time in orthodontic treatment, we offer Six Month Smiles. The Six Month Smiles system uses state-of-the-art dental technology to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear braces.
Stained or discolored teeth are a problem for many people, and we’ve got lots of solutions to restore your smile to its sparkling best. Our convenient teeth whitening options include both in-office and take-home treatments. If your teeth are severely stained, we may suggest bonding with dental composites to conceal any discoloration.
If you don’t have a lot of time or money for a complete smile makeover, our Snap-On Smile is a solution you should consider. These artificial teeth are designed to fit right over your existing teeth to camouflage even the most obvious imperfections. And the process couldn’t be easier – it just takes two appointments to fabricate your customized Snap-On Smile.
Convenient, Accessible Dentistry in Ellicott City
Receiving the highest quality dental treatment is essential, but it certainly doesn't need to be complicated. We’re open five days a week, and we’ll work with your schedule to find appointment times that fit your busy life.
Dental emergencies can be upsetting, but we always leave extra time in our schedule so we can usually see you the same day and provide relief as quickly as possible. Even if you're not a current patient of ours, please do not hesitate to connect with us if you are experiencing dental pain or have a broken or damaged tooth. We certainly hope that you choose to remain our patient after the emergency procedure, but that will never affect the quality of care you will receive.
We know that insurance coverage and financing play a big part in the decisions you make about your dental care, and we do everything we can to make your treatment affordable. Our office accepts many insurance plans, including Delta Dental Premier, Cigna Radius, and United Healthcare PPO. We’re happy to file all claims for your convenience. Insurance coverage is a complicated subject for many patients, so please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have questions about your specific insurance.
If you’re interested in other payment options for out-of-pocket expenses, we offer affordable financing through CareCredit and The Lending Club. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
We don't want any of our patients to put off necessary dental treatments due to fears of financial burden; things will never get better if you ignore it. It is far better to get the treatment you need now than to suffer needlessly from pain or face tooth loss.
