This has indeed been an amazing year for EJL Dental and as 2019 winds down, we have so much to be thankful for. We would like to wish our valued patients warm and happy holidays. We appreciate your business and wish you the very best in the coming year. To our dedicated staff, we thank you for your daily efforts and look forward to even greater things in 2020. May everyone’s holidays be filled with the great company of family and friends and of course, amazing food!
This year, we rolled out our e-newsletter to share good dental health information and news about our practice. The latest addition to our pediatric team, Dr. Sheyda Maghsoudi, who joined our practice in July of this year, was the first dentist to be featured. In case you missed it, here is a link to her bio. If you were wondering who the ‘E’, ‘J’ and ‘L’ are in EJL Dental, here’s your chance to find out as each of our dentists were also featured. Dr. Ensor gave us insight into her motivation for wanting to become a pediatric dentist, Dr. Johnson told us about following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather in being an orthodontist and Dr. Lewis explained what being a pediatric dentist, especially one who looks after special needs patients, means to her.
Due to high demand, we also extended the office hours for our dentists who care for adults. We increased availability to better serve our patients. Our hard work did not go unnoticed as we were recognized as ‘Top Vote Getters’ in Bethesda’s Best of 2019 readers pick for Best Pediatric Dentists. We were extremely proud of Drs. Ensor and Lewis, whose hard work and dedication to the dental pediatric field were recognized. Dr. Johnson was also featured in 2019 Best of Jewish Washington as the ‘Best Orthodontist’ in our area and was also voted ‘Top Vote Getter’ in Bethesda’s Best of 2020. We are VERY proud of him! Our support staff has also been instrumental in our successes this year. To show our appreciation for their hard work, we are in the process of planning an unforgettable company trip. Be sure to stay tuned for the details in the months ahead!
Community support has always been something our practice has been passionate about. And 2019 was no different as we participated in the candy buy-back in October and a canned food drive for soup kitchens in November. Earlier this year, we were privileged to be of service to two families in need. Two refugee Afghan families were brought to the area by a local synagogue and when we heard of the families’ story, we wanted to help. To help get their dental health in order, we provided pro bono care to each member of both families. Throughout the year, we also did our best to provide school sponsorships to sports teams. All in all, 2019 was definitely a year of giving back.
We also extended our marketing efforts by having a great digital marketing firm come on board- Consult PR. We would like to thank them for our brand new website. You may have noticed that the look and feel of our site was drastically improved and we hope that you have found it to be more responsive and easier to navigate. We definitely wanted to enhance the online experience for our patients.
We are happy to report that we will be celebrating 50 years in business in the new year! The legacy left by EJL Dental’s previous owners, Drs. Morgenstein and Levy, can be seen throughout our practice to this very day. We have always been, and will always be patient-centric while providing a safe and comfortable atmosphere for you and your family. We have many things planned for this huge milestone! We can’t tell you just yet but you can expect exciting things in 2020! We thank you for your continued trust and support and we look forward to providing unparalleled dental care for every member of your family!
