Crissy and her team (Amber, Danielle, Shannon) are the BEST! Professional, great sense of humor, always on top of things. Very easy to schedule appointments and they make sure to remind you ahead of time. Baked cookies greet you when you walk in - amazing. If you have any orthodontic needs, do yourself a favor and go to Crissy!!!
Wonderful experience. I went in for a consultation and left with braces. Everyone here from Dr. Markova to the front desk staff to the assistants was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend this office to any and everyone seeking orthodontic care.
Great service, but extremely high prices.
I'm new to the area so I trusted some reviews on zocdoc and booked an appointment. Glad I did! I went to get my retainer adjusted. They were very polite. Dr. Markova listened to my concerns and did a great job adjusting my retainers they are much more comfortable! She gave me some advice for my baby tooth extraction and implant placement as well! For any additional ortho concerns Dr. Markova will be my first stop!
Very quick, friendly, and helped me with all my questions.
Very professional and a pleasant experience for a first time visit.
Dr Markova is the best doctor I've ever had, for any kind of medicine. She really cares about her patients and is really great at providing flexible options based on patient needs and financing, and is the friendliest, kindest person I've ever met! I highly recommend her!
She is very kind and friendly. She listed my points, explained to me, and gave some options. No pressure at all!
Very Pleasant and welcoming! Love the office
Office staff was very friendly and informative. Dr.Markova made my visit very pleasant. I've already told my friends and they are going to get their braces there also. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a orthodontist that is very knowledgeable and can listen and understand your concerns. P.s they have all new state of the art machines and instruments. ;)
She is the best doctor I have ever been to for any reason.
Wow, I didn't know dentist offices this awesome existed. Very bright and modern facility, starting with a nice waiting area and pleasant person at the front desk who actually smiles at you and welcomes you while knowing what she's doing. The doctor came out to greet me and gave me a tour of the facility. We then went into her private office where we talked about my mouth piece. She then spent time with me checking my bite and mouth piece and how everything fit. She said that I didn't need any adjustment or a new mouth piece. She was very nice and walked me back to the front desk. There was no charge for the consultation! Shannon at the desk was wonderful. The modern x-ray machine gives out less radiation and the dental chairs are facing the window with a great view from the 8th floor.
Dr. Markova and her staff are wonderful!! I was running late because of work and they were very accommodating. They understood and they did what they could to get me in and out. I went in for a consultation and I am going back to get my scans for Invisalign! The staff is very nice and Shannon has done everything she could to work with me on making this affordable for me! I've contacted her many times over the last few days and she is always very pleasant to speak with me and has never seemed like I was annoying her or anything. She's been extremely helpful and although the office is currently out of network for me I changed it just so I could go to this office. They also gave me a cute little gift for coming to do my consultation there :)! This could go on forever haha but bottom line is I would refer anyone here and would definitely tell you to go!
Excellent Orthodontist. Very fair, polite, kind, and intelligent. Highly recommend for all orthodontic procedures.
Very nice and bubbly. :)
I loved Crissy !! My consult was very informative and she made me feel very comfortable about the process of getting my treatment . Because of that I decided to get my braces the same day . She is super sweet (everyone in the office was) and I know I made the perfect decision of choosing her as my orthodontist .
I thought that the overall experience was fanatic and I would highly recommend her to working professionals in the Arlington area looking for braces!
Dr. Markova and her staff were very welcoming! As soon as I entered the office I was given a friendly greeting and shown around the office. Dr. Markova and her staff made me feel at ease, provided very thorough and helpful information regarding my concerns, and made thoughtful and practical recommendations for my treatment. They were warm, caring, and patient answering all questions I had. I was very pleased with my visit and will continue receiving orthodontics care at their office. I even left with a small gift bag as a token of appreciation of their patients :)
I'm very satisfied with everything they had to offered.
I've been seeing Dr. Markova for orthodontics for about four months now. Everything has been going great so far and she and her staff are super responsive - they always answer any questions I have within a few hours. They truly represent a medical team that cares about its patients.
The office is gorgeous, modern and filled with natural light. Dr. Markova is friendly, knowledgeable, and is using so many wonderful new techniques for my children. Orthodontics is really evolving! Great overall experience and highly recommended!
