About Dr. Justin Washington, Sr.

** ZOOM WHITENING SPECIAL ** Dr. Washington is a compassionate dentist whose main goal is to improve oral health in Houston and the surrounding areas. Dr. Washington is a graduate of Hampton University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and graduated with honors. After his matriculation at Hampton, Dr. Washington knew that he wanted to figure out a way to solve many problems in the health of the community. He continued his education by earning his Master of Public Health degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School where he was inducted in the Delta Omega Honor Society for his academic excellence and community service. Based on the need he saw in the community for oral healthcare professionals, he embarked on his dental education at Meharry Medical College where he graduated with honors. After graduating from Meharry, Dr. Washington completed a 1-year general practice residency with the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston where he received extensive training in treating medically compromised patients, extensive surgical procedures and all aspects of cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Washington received extensive training in implant placement and restoration using the latest technology available. He is also trained in OR procedures for those complicated cases where the patient would be totally asleep during treatment. His excellent work during his residency was highlighted as he was awarded 1 of only 2 excellence awards given to GPR residents that year. Dr. Washington is a devoted Christian and family man. He is married to a pediatric nurse practitioner and is the proud father of three wonderful children

Dr. Washington is the best. Somehow he is the only dentist I’ve ever had that doesn’t pull on your mouth or apply too much pressure. He has a light touch and really puts you at ease.

As a teen, I had a traumatic experience in a dentist office and as a result, I am an awful patient. If I tell you the dentist who serviced me was the best Dentist I have EVER encountered and I am 62 years old. This man, Dr. Matthew Plummer was awesome. He cleaned my teeth and remove a tooth that was embedded in my gums and I did not know he was finished. I have had no pain, and cannot wait to return as I am in need of extensive dental work. Highly recommend this office!

Dr. Washington took care of two cavities for me, and there was absolutely NO pain, not with lidocaine nor drilling of the teeth. He took me back earlier than my stated appointment, and I was done in 30 minutes. What a pleasure from beginning to end!

It was a nice and quick experience with Dr. Washington as always! The young woman assisting him was very nice, being the first time I’ve seen her assisting Dr. Washington. However, she was a little rough with flossing my teeth for my comfort when compared to past experiences.

Dr. Washington is an awesome dentist! He is one of few dentist that has actually done routine cleanings. He is always genuinely concerned about his patients. And he remembers the details of previous visits. He's more than a dental profession. He is a friend. He is a great asset to Dr. Plummer's life-long practice.

The service was great. The ladies upfront were very friendly when I arrived. I had virtual no wait time in the waiting area. I was escorted back and after the X-Rays I saw the doctor within 5 minutes. The cleaning was thorough and timely. It was a pleasant experience and I would highly recommend booking him.

I love visits with Dr. Washington! He remembers details about me as a person (my job, family, etc) and discusses them with me before we get started with the appointment. I can tell he really cares. Unlike other dentists, he is the one who takes care of me rather than the dental assistant. I would highly recommend!
