An enthusiastic world traveler, she pairs these passions by focusing on dental needs in developing countries - she planned a documentary chronicling her medical mission to Ethiopia in early 2013.
Verified Patient Reviews
Highly recommend this office!
Great team of people, warm environment, and professional atmosphere!
I've put off going to the dentist literally for YEARS because I have anxiety around dental work due to past poor experiences. Well I wish I visited this office earlier! Very nice and professional staff, and relaxing office. Like how can a dentist office be relaxing?? I just recommended Dr. Hancock to my friend who has also been avoiding going.
Great staff and very friendly, timely attention, clear explanation of procedures and treatment.
She is great! And the tam was really nice too.
I have serious dental anxiety and hate going and I must say that several appointments in, I don't dread it the way that I did before. Dr. Hancock is gentle and fast and does amazing work. Thanks to her and her great staff, I've gone from full-blown panicking, waiting until things are beyond intolerable, and unable to even book my own appointments to going online today to schedule my own appointment for something that happened yesterday. The staff is truly understanding of my extreme anxiety and never chided me for waiting so long to come in. For the first time in my life, I feel like I've found a dentist that I can stick with.
I almost always enjoy my visits to see Dr. Hancock! The office is well kept and the staff members are professional and very friendly! In fact because of my great experiences there it prompted David Harris to become a patient as well. Other friends have inquired also.
Fantastic dentist and staff.
Dr. Hancock and her entire staff was very reassuring and thorough. I definitely recommend the practice
All made me think people there were doing business instead of giving a health service.
Enjoyed the small office, very convenient location
Services are a tad expensive but maybe it's just the location of the practice.
She missed a chipped tooth that the hygienist had to point out. But seemed very competent examining xrays and dental work. Unclear what the office's relation to Invisalign is, but they seem to push it a lot. Pretty modern equipment.
It was a pleasure meeting w Dr. Hancock for a second opinion. I will follow the professional advise provided and followup if all fails.
Best dental care I have ever received. Dr. Hancock was extremely thorough, attentive, patient with my questions, and by far the most knowledgeable and insightful dentist I have ever visited. I travel a lot for my job, but will make sure that wherever I am in the future, I return to DC for her excellent work. Thank you!
The office is very nice and the cleaning seems thorough. I do feel like they were always trying up-sell me into adding on extra things that weren't necessary (mouth guard, whitening, etc.) I now go to a new dentist and they haven't suggested anything.
This was among the most professional and thorough dental experiences I have ever had.
Fantastic, as a new patient, I was impressed!
Good. But expensive as hell. Not sure they charged my insurance and think.they overcharged me in cash. Otherwise doctors were good
Thought the doctor and staff were highly professional.
Dr. Hancock & the staff are incredibly polite and professional. The wait time was minimal and they even presented me with a gift basket as a new patient.
Best dentist I have ever had!
They were very polite, hospitable, and easy to talk to. They also thoroughly explained everything from the procedure being done and the x-ray pictures that we both viewed to the billing cost. Most importantly, they care about your time...so they will get things done efficiently, thoroughly, and as quickly as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Hancock and the Presidental Dental Group.
