About Us
Crossroads Dental Arts


Our Mission

Our purpose as a dental team is to provide the best quality dental care for our patients. With care, compassion, and understanding, Owings Mills dentist Dr. Joanne Block Rief and her team strive to deliver this treatment as gently as possible. We want to help our patients achieve excellent oral and overall health and create the exceptional smile they deserve. We are the smile experts.

Our Technology

Dental technology has made remarkable advances, with developments in diagnosis and treatment that many may not be aware of. If you have not been to a dentist recently or have been in the care of someone who has not adopted new techniques, you will notice a difference the first moment you enter our office.

For example, we now use digital radiography, which allows us to diagnose in more depth with the use of much less radiation. We also use diode lasers to cosmetically contour gums and treat mouth ulcers and cold sores. We also use the Itero Digital Scanner instead of making impressions of teeth. This device is more comfortable for patients, requires no more gooey impressions, and creates highly accurate images of teeth. Our Owings Mills dental office also uses SNAP Dental Imaging, which allows us to take a digital picture of your teeth and create the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of having.

VELscope is routinely used in our office to help detect precancerous and cancerous lesions that may not be visible to the naked eye. To eliminate bacteria from the dental waterlines in our office, a system called O-So Pure has been installed.

Our Promise

We are committed to providing each patient with an initial appointment during which patient concerns and cosmetic desires will be addressed. We respect our patients’ time. We do not double book. Unless an unexpected dental emergency arises, we make sure that patients are seen at their scheduled appointment time. We want each patient to feel comfortable with ample appointment time to address his or her dental concerns. Please allow adequate travel time to locate our office.

Once you have explained your dental and cosmetic concerns and we have completed a thorough dental examination and necessary radiographs, a treatment plan may be developed. Written explanations of most procedures and problems are available and will be offered to you. Advantages and disadvantages of treatment, risks of treatment, options, and costs of treatment will be presented to you. Any questions you have will be answered before treatment begins. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our practice. We hope to see you soon!
