What made you decide to practice dentistry on the Eastern Shore?
I lived in Delaware, went to the University of Delaware as an undergrad and spent some time during the summers at the Delaware and Maryland shores. In my search to find a practice, I interviewed with Drs. Geoff Robbins and Larry Michnick and knew quickly that this was the place for me. — CT
 
 
What is a recent breakthrough in your field?
Restorative treatments in general. From advancements in material strengths and aesthetics to developments of new materials or improved techniques that shorten the patient’s visits, technology advances mean there is always a new product to increase success rates and long-term aesthetics while reducing a patient’s length of stay. — CS
 
 
What advancements do you anticipate in your field  in the next 10 years?
Continued simplified treatments, especially within the field of implants and alternative treatments to replacing teeth that have been extracted or require an extraction. — CS
 
 
What’s the most recent addition you’ve made to your practice to improve the patient experience?
As Dr. Geoffrey Robbins retired this year, we incorporated Dr. Corey Smith into the practice, the son of Debby Smith, a hygienist at Atlantic Dental for 38 years. By including Dr. Smith into the practice, we help meet the current dental needs of the community, and he will continue the Atlantic Dental legacy for years to come. — LM
 
 
What makes your practice's atmosphere so unique?
The atmosphere is different from any other practice in the area. We have a calm and relaxing facility, with spalike amenities. We also keep up with the most current dental techniques, materials and equipment, to provide to the most up-to-date treatment possible. — CT
 
 
What is it about your practice that makes it unique?
Our mission statement is: “We at Atlantic Dental Cosmetic & Family Dentistry are Different! We believe in delivering the best treatment possible, with an emphasis on smile enhancement and quality care. We treat the person, not just the mouth.” We are different because we pamper our patients and strive to make their dental experiences pleasant. Upon entering our office, you will realize you are at a dental office unlike any other.  Soothing music, art-deco lighting, beautiful waterfront environment. Our waiting room provides hot and cold beverages, fresh fruit, Wi-Fi and TV. Patients can enjoy the beautiful views while using the foot-massaging units if they wish. However, patients don’t wait long, as we work hard to stay on schedule. In addition, our friendly hygienists and assistants give the deluxe treatment to all guests. A warm neck wrap, a paraffin hand wax and a massaging dental chair all help mellow the dental experience. We like to keep our patients smiling. — LM
