Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have been practicing dentistry for over 9 years and have gained a wide range of clinical experience. I have extensive experience in both general and implant dentistry gained from private practice, my implant fellowship, and the Navy. We have a great staff and modern office where we will take outstanding care of your oral health needs. We have natural light in all our dental operatories, a massage feature in the dental chairs, and free on-site parking.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I focus on General Dentistry, Implant Dentistry, and Invisalign treatment.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am proud of our dedicated staff along with our modern facilities here at Washington Dental Care.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating all cases but especially enjoy the ability improve someone's confidence in their smile. I particularly like cases that utilize implants and/or Invisalign to improve a patient's function and esthetics.

    The office is very clean and modern and the front desk was a bright smiling face as soon as I walked in the door. The interior design of the office was modern and very clean feeling. My experience with the dentist was very clear about what I was expected to pay and the staff are very down to earth and friendly. I had an overall great experience.

    From the time I walked in it was so peaceful. I was greeted and seen right away and they were playing classical music which I love. They were very friendly and helpful. I've found my new dentist!
