Coronavirus and our office update

We have received many questions about the coronovirus and our practice. I wanted to let you know that we are taking aggressive, thorough, and comprehensive measures to keep our office COVID-19 free. In addition to the standard hygiene protocols established by the CDC, American Dental Association and OSHA, which even in normal times we follow and adhere to with vigilance, we are also screening our patients for travel and flu like symptoms while cleaning throughout the day all of our public spaces -- bathrooms, reception, front desk, door handles, etc.

As you know, our professional staff always wear masks, gloves, and protective coats when interacting with our patients and all our equipment is sterilized. All exam rooms are thoroughly cleaned between each patient visit. Nothing is more important than our patient's health and dental health and we will do everything in our power to make our office an ultra-low risk environment.

If you currently feel sick, please reschedule your dental appointment and call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.

Please also reschedule your appointment if, in the past two weeks, you have either been in close contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19, or have returned to the United States from an area affected by the coronavirus disease. Right now this list includes China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. However, the list of countries continues to change, so it’s a good idea to check this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for updates on the affected countries.

If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to call us.

    What Our Patients Are Saying


    “I have no fear—which is amazing.”

    “My kids actually enjoy coming to the dentist!”


    “Dr. Longenecker is exactly the dentist I want to have”

    Cosmetic &
    Restorative Dentistry

    What does the term “cosmetic dentistry” mean? Simply stated, traditional dentistry focuses on hygiene, prevention, and the diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases. Cosmetic dentistry’s main goal is to improve the appearance of your smile. Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring your mouth to its most effective functionality. When we complete your smile and make your teeth and mouth function properly, restorative dentistry can enhance your smile and oral health!



    To give you a fabulous smile without the hassle, discomfort and unattractiveness of traditional metal braces, we offer Invisalign® clear braces. These fantastic invisible braces are almost completely undetectable, so feel free to laugh and smile while your teeth are being straightened. Invisalign® clear braces are also much easier to care for and can take less time than traditional metal braces as well! You will love orthodontic treatment when you choose this option!


    Family Dentistry

    Dr. Longenecker is happy to offer family dentistry to his Hereford Dental patients. From regular family dentist checkups for you and your loved ones to a focus on screening for oral cancer, educating about periodontal disease, TMJ, and other oral health issues, our family dentistry practices can provide early diagnosis and treatment to enhance your good health. Our family dentistry is all about you, so you feel completely comfortable during your visits here!


    What Our Patients Say

    Cindy, patient of Monkton dentist Dr. Craig Longenecker.
    We all know that “everyone hates to go to the dentist”. However, I have found at Hereford Dental Health, you are treated by happy, professional people from the front desk to the dental chair. I’ve had extensive work done from restoring old fillings and crowns, to replacing bad veneers. I’m pleased to say Dr. Longenecker has done an amazing job. I am 100% satisfied.


    Laura, patient of Monkton dentist Dr. Craig Longenecker.
    Hereford Dental Health provides the most thorough dental care I’ve ever had. Feeling confident in the care I receive is invaluable. What really sets them apart is the amount of patience everyone at the office has. I never feel rushed; whether I’m there for a cleaning or otherwise, they take time to explain options and walk through procedures. Even though I’ve moved away and it is no longer convenient to visit Dr. Craig, I can’t imagine going anywhere else.


    Laura, patient of Monkton dentist Dr. Craig Longenecker.
    I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing Craig Longenecker for over fifteen years both personally and professionally. We have seen Craig and Liz start both their family as well as start his dental practice and both have been brought into fruition with great care, love and due diligence. Craig and his associates/staff have always treated his patients as if they were part of an extended family, you can feel the bond as soon as you walk in the door… While there is complete professionalism, there is also no shortage of laughter which serves to make me feel right at home in his chair.


    Laura, patient of Parkton dentist Dr. Craig Longenecker.
    I feel very fortunate to have such an excellent team of dental experts in Northern Baltimore County. Hereford Dental Health is a top-notch practice; from the inviting and comfortable waiting room atmosphere, to the warm and friendly staff and the extremely clean treatment rooms. Dr. Longenecker’s practice is by far the place to go for high quality, gentle dental care for the entire family. I’ve been Dr. Longenecker’s patient for over 15 years; now, I take my three children to him, too. The staff all work well with children. I love my white healthy teeth and Hereford Dental Health gives me a lot to smile about!


    Mike, patient of Monkton dentist Dr. Craig Longenecker.
    Who likes going to the dentist? No one. However, Craig and his team have changed that . Their commitment to excellence, attention to detail and caring bedside manner are delivered in a warm and friendly environment. If you like to smile and want to hang on to your teeth, regular dental checkups are a necessity – and the Hereford Dental experience makes it easy to follow through.


    Meg, patient of Monkton dentist Dr. Craig Longenecker.
    My family and I have been patients of Dr. Craig for over 10 years. I have total confidence in him and his entire staff. Going for check-ups there is always a positive, enjoyable experience. An enjoyable experience at the dentist? Yes!
