UPDATE: APRIL 14, 2020
Like everyone, we are closely monitoring news about the coronavirus and the best advice to prevent transmission. When Washington, DC went into “lockdown,” we closed our offices for regular dental care. As a health care provider, however, we are able to provide emergency dental care to some patients. If you are having a dental emergency, please use this form to request an appointment. You may also call us at 202-543-2020 during our temporary office hours (below). If you call at any hour and get a voice recording, you will be given instructions for reaching Dr. Halim directly. Please follow those instructions.
Our temporary office hours are Mon, Tue, and Wed from 8:30 to 12:30. 

In the meantime, we continue to take these precautionary measures:

  • Frequent and thorough hand-washing
  • Enhancing our already-high standards for keeping all furnishings, tools, and treatment equipment clean and sanitized.
  • Strictly enforcing our rules for both staff and patients regarding staying home if sick and/or potentially contagious.
  • We will greet you with warmth but not handshakes or other non-clinical touching.
  • We ask that you maintain the 6′ social distancing guidelines in the presence of all but Dr. Halim (during treatment).
  • For the health and safety of our staff and other clients, please call us to reschedule your appointment if you are sick, self-quarantining,  and/or potentially contagious.

We will continue to monitor the latest advisories on the virus and take additional measures, as needed. Everyone’s health and safety come first.

Thank you!
Nishan Halim, DMD
