Best Dentist Office in Burke VA and Chevy Chase MD

Our staff is here for you.

Our friendly dental team works together to ensure that you feel relaxed and comfortable during your visits. We enjoy getting to know our patients and getting updates about their lives. We encourage you to contact our dental office in Burke VA or Chevy Chase MD to learn more about us and to schedule your appointment.

My passion and excitement, as a dentist, is derived from being able to provide insight and understanding into the root of each patient’s dental concerns. Often these issues have gone undiagnosed or have been neglected, patched up, or left untreated, which has led to serious problems. I am happy when I’m able to map out a successful plan to remedy these problems and set the groundwork so they do not reoccur.

Many patients enter our office feeling hopeless or lost with regards to their oral health, after having experienced failed attempts at care from other practitioners. I take pride in helping these people through their negative experiences and having them leave empowered, with knowledge and a clear path to oral and overall health.

Many of my patients travel from out-of-state to be treated here. I love and cherish the trust and loyalty these people have in me and our team. I treat all of my patients as family and ensure they receive the excellent care they deserve.

In constantly striving for excellence, I am able to provide a wide range of dental services within a few short visits. This ensures my patients get back to enjoying what matters most: Their Health and Their Lives!
