Rockville Dental Arts Will Remain Open For Dental Emergencies

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. As of May 11th, 2000 we will begin to offer regular dental appointments, including cleanings, and all other dental services. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that we you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it’s time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  1. Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  2. We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office.
  3. We will be scheduling extra time for every appointment to allow for proper infection control protocol.
  4. There will be no reception area. All patients will be immediately directed to their appropriate room.
  5. Patients will not be allowed extra guests in the office, except under special circumstances.
  6. We will be using text messaging to let you know when we are ready for you to come in for your appointment. During this time, it’s extremely important to be prompt to your appointment.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Dr. Dennis Norkiewicz and Staff

Have you been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or come in contact with individuals who have been suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19?

We will continue to perform standard infection control techniques in our office.


Our staff routinely clean and disinfect public areas frequently; reception area, bathrooms, common areas.

We will ask that you rinse with our peroxide mouthwash before any dental procedure is initiated.

We understand your decision to seek dental care is personal and many factors are involved. Our office is committed to the importance of your dental healthcare, welfare, comfort, and safety. We will continue to monitor this dynamic situation and will follow the guidelines of our infection control, epidemiologists, public health authorities, and other healthcare professionals to provide you great dental care in a safe and comfortable setting.

When I first moved to the area some six plus years ago I stumbled on this gem. All the staff are very accommodating and polite and they truly care about their patients. From the dentist to the dental hygienist they always try their best to help you and education you on dental care. Really could not ask for a better place! If you are in need of dentist this is the place to go.

Hands down the best dentist and dental office that I've visited. The warm and genuine hospitality that April and the entire front desk staff exhibits is unparalleled. Beyond that, once you are seated in the new and sparkling clean dental chair, you immediately know that you are in good hands. Dr. Norkiewicz and his team have provided me with world class dental care for nearly a decade. From routine cleanings to dental implants, they do it all. Go to Rockville Dental Arts if you want something to smile about. You'll be glad that you did.

amazing experience! I had developed severe anxiety around going to the dentist after a bad experience. I found this place after seeing so many great reviews and can definitely see why that is. They made me feel so at ease and informed. I really appreciated their solution-oriented approach. Highly recommend.

I had such a wonderful experience as a new patient at this location. My hygienist (Jackie), was nothing less than phenomenal with my oral care and maintenance. She was very thorough in explaining my care plan, she was extremely personable and genuine which is very important to me. The physicians and staff were all extremely inviting, and impressed upon me that my dental care was their number one priority. I would definitely recommend this location and their team to all!
