Harvey Levy, DMD, MAGD, FACD, FICD
Harvey Levy established our practice with the mission of extending dental care to underserved populations. His focus centers on aiding individuals grappling with anxiety or special needs. As 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. Dr. Levy is an inspiring teacher and professor. He has taught thousands of dental professionals to care for patients with unique requirements, and loves to make sure that patients clearly understand their choices. His favorite aspects of dentistry are oral surgery, sedation dentistry in the office or hospital, and difficult cases in general. Harvey is a master in the martial arts, and 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 joined our practice in 2020. She’s a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in Baltimore.

She has extensive experience in pediatric dentistry, and displays an outstanding chairside manner with children — even the ones who are scared of the dentist. Ellen loves dogs, hiking, swimming, and being outdoors.
