Dr. Louis Sachs established his private dental practice in 1991 in Avondale Center in Solomons, Maryland. His dental mission was to have a comprehensive dental practice in a caring environment using top quality dental materials and laboratories. In addition, outstanding features of Dr. Sachs’ practice is the time spent with patients and seeing patients as close to their appointed times as possible. These key features are different from most dental practices, where low quality materials and labs are used and schedules are jam packed with patients. Another key feature is that you will see familiar faces. We added two new staff members within the last two years, due to the retirements of two long term staff members, while the other staff members have been with Dr. Sachs for an average of 18 years!
