    I love this practice. I consider myself pretty picky when it comes to doctors and Dr Dufera is one of the bests I’ve seen (doctors in general, not just dentists). He is super nice and professional, gentle on my sensitive teeth, and takes the time to explain everything, show photos and teach you how to have great oral health. I can’t recommend him enough

    I highly recommend Silver Spring Smiles. Dr. Dufera and the staff are truly wonderful and caring, and have gone above and beyond in many different ways in the five years I have been a patient. My whole family is always extremely happy with the level of care and quality of the dental work we receive. Dr. Dufera is the best dentist I have ever had. The office is clean, new and state of the art, and very conveniently located in downtown Silver Spring. I am so happy I found Silver Spring Smiles!!

    I'm delighted to share my incredible experience as a new patient at Silver Spring Smiles. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted by a pristine and inviting environment. The cleanliness of the facility was immediately noticeable and added to the sense of comfort and trust I felt. The entire staff demonstrated a remarkable level of professionalism and kindness during my initial visit. It was evident that they prioritize patient care and satisfaction. The doctor who conducted my examination was thorough and informative. They promptly identified my urgent need for wisdom teeth extraction due to the pain I was experiencing. Additionally, a deep cleaning was recommended, which was efficiently scheduled for the following week. During my subsequent appointment, the doctor's commitment to my well-being was truly commendable. Their inquiry about the status of my wisdom teeth extraction appointments elsewhere showcased their dedication to addressing my immediate concerns. This proactive approach reassured me that I was in capable hands. Following the doctor's advice, I diligently contacted multiple oral surgeons in search of an earlier appointment for my wisdom teeth extraction. Unfortunately, most offices had availability only as far as January, which would have been too late given my discomfort. Miraculously, the last place I contacted had an unexpected cancellation on the same day as my scheduled deep cleaning. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, I seized the opportunity and agreed to the same-day extraction. While embracing my role in securing the necessary procedure, I encountered an unexpected challenge when rescheduling my deep cleaning appointment. Despite my valid reasons and the doctor's explicit guidance to seek an earlier extraction, I faced an unprofessional attitude from the front desk. The tone of the conversation and the emphasis on my awareness of the original appointment date were disheartening and really makes the company look bad. It's important to highlight the significance of exemplary customer service, especially when representing another entity's brand. In conclusion, my experience at Silver Spring Smiles reaffirmed the vital role that exceptional customer service plays in a healthcare setting. The blend of clinical expertise, genuine care, and a strong commitment to patient well-being makes Silver Spring Smiles a standout choice. As a representative of their brand, the importance of leaving a positive and lasting impression on every patient cannot be understated. I'm grateful for the expert care provided and hope that this review serves as a testament to the outstanding service that Silver Spring Smiles strives to offer to all its patients.
