Status of Our Offices Reopening

May 8th, 2020

Dear Patients and Families,

We wanted to give you a quick update on the status of our offices reopening.

We are working hard to ensure the safety of our patients and staff prior to reopening. We are required to have certain PPE as you have heard from our governor, there is a shortage. We have ordered everything and just waiting for it to arrive. We are also required to get certification from the Maryland State Dental Association that we are compliant with the new standards due to the coronavirus. As such, we are happy to hear the governor's office has announced that dental and oral healthcare offices may begin to reopen, but it will be a little longer before we begin seeing patients in office. We will announce when we officially resume in- office visits and will also post updates on our website.

In the meantime, we are so happy to continue to offer virtual appointments. For those who has in- person appointments scheduled for the next few weeks, we will reach out to you directly to coordinate. We are also available to assist with any orthodontic emergencies. If you experience an emergency, please call the office to make an appointment.

Stay well everyone! We can’t wait to see you in the office, sometime soon!

The Team at Benkovich Orthodontics

Give Your Teen a Winning Smile

Give Your Teen A Winning Smile

Does your teen avoid smiling because they don’t like their teeth? An adolescent’s smile can actually have a profound effect on their self-esteem and even impact their social skills. Further, according to a research study out of Webster University, a confident smile can be seen as being more attractive than traditional good looks. 


We know that our teens are super conscious of their image. Just look at the number of selfies they take, and how much time they spend liking, commenting and sharing their friends’ photos on Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram. That’s why when teens come to Benkovich Orthodontics we provide options to ensure their confidence stays high while their smiles improve.


Through orthodontic treatment (either with traditional braces or Invisalign) Dr. Benkovich can correct genetic issues from crowding and spaced teeth to protruding upper teeth. He can also address improper bites due to thumb-sucking as a child, periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene, early or late loss of primary teeth or trauma to the teeth from a sporting injury.


The other good news is that adolescence is the optimal time to rectify orthodontic problems since teens haven’t yet finished growing. Early correction of orthodontic problems frequently takes less time in treatment and is less costly when compared to correction of dental problems that have been allowed to progress into adulthood.


Improving and encouraging your teens’ self-esteem is one of our core values at Benkovich Orthodontics. It’s one of the big reasons why we offer Invisalign (besides the fact that its excellent technology that allows us to create beautiful, healthy smiles). In fact, a study by Invisalign, confirms that “people with straight teeth are perceived more likely to be happy” … we hope all our patients are leaving our practice happy after each and every appointment. 


Want to give your teen a smile that will help boost their self-confidence? Bring them to Benkovich Orthodontics where we’ll give them a smile that will knock ‘em out of the park!

With two convenient locations, Annapolis and Kent Island, we are ready to help you start smiling. Please contact our Annapolis or our Kent Island office to schedule a complimentary consultation or click below:
