Harvey Levy, DMD, MAGD, FACD, FICD

Dr. Harvey Levy

Dr. Harvey Levy founded our practice with the vision of providing dental care to underserved populations, particularly those with anxiety or special needs. An alumnus of Tufts Dental School and the University of Rochester, he started practicing in Frederick in 1980. He’s an excellent diagnostician who developed a special technique for pulling teeth quickly and with few fractures. An inspiring teacher and professor, he has taught thousands of dental professionals to care for patients with special needs, and loves to make sure that patients clearly understand their choices. He enjoys oral surgery, sedation dentistry in the office and in the hospital, and difficult cases generally. A master in the martial arts, Dr. Levy may treat you to a stream of dad jokes and lighthearted conversation. See his complete CV here. See Dr. Levy’s Clinician’s Corner.

Ellen Hailemelecot, MS, DDS

Ellen Hailemelecot

Dr. Hailemelecot joined our practice in 2020. She’s a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in Baltimore. Dr. H. focuses even more than the rest of us in treating the whole mouth: she will want to know what your goals are, and what you want to achieve. She has extensive experience in pediatric dentistry, and displays an outstanding chairside manner with children — even the ones who are scared of the dentist. She loves dogs, hiking, swimming, and being outdoors.
