Billings & Murphy, DDS, PA has the reputation of being one the most respected professional practices on the Eastern Shore. Built with compassion and care, their office strives to provide excellent dental care and make every patient’s experience pleasant, efficient and comfortable.

Jonathan Soistman, DDS and Ashley Francis, DDS, have joined the practice. Their shared philosophy that dentists need to be caring and compassionate make them a perfect fit for the team. Dr. Soistman and Dr. Francis graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School and completed post graduate residency programs. Dr. Scott Billings and Dr. Christopher Murphy also attended the University of Maryland and have practiced on Kent Island for more than 20 years.

The office is equipped with the most modern equipment included digital x-rays which reduces radiation by over 80 percent. Comfort items such as lip balm, bottled water and blankets help make the patient’s visit more relaxed. Dr. Soistman says, “Everyone has certain expectations when they go to the dentist. Our desire is to surpass those expectations and deliver dental treatment in a cheerful, pleasant and comfortable manner.”

Their office has always been committed to the community, contributing to numerous charities over the years. Recently, they held their first annual “Dentistry From the Heart” day and gave free dental treatment to patients that otherwise could not afford it. “Our commitment to the community is steadfast. We feel rewarded when we give,” says Dr. Murphy.

The office offers appointments from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to meet the busy schedule needs of their patients. Saturday hours are available as well. Payment plans and Emergency Care is also provided, and New Patients are always welcome.

Q. What should someone look for when choosing a new dentist?

A. I think that the doctor’s reputation in the community is very important. Then, when you meet the new dentist you should feel that you have trust in him or her. This will be developed by the doctor’s personality, the disposition of the staff and the appearance of the office. A clean office with modern technology shows that the dentist cares about you and the treatment you will receive.
