I am a very anxious dental patient. I also grind my teeth a lot, which means that sometimes we have to redo or adjust dental repairs like crowns or cracked fillings, etc. Everyone at Elite Dental is very reassuring and helpful.I feel taken care of here because they do a great job of explaining everything and working with you to ensure your comfort and the success of the work.

Dr. Walker is the best dentist I've ever had. Both he and his entire office are so wonderful and I always leave the office feeling better than when I walked in. If all offices were like this, maybe people wouldn't dread the dentist so much!

I highly recommend this practice! In fact, I just recommended this practice to someone yesterday. from the reception staff, to the hygienists, to the doctors--everyone is always professional, friendly, well-groomed, knowledgeable, patientand kind. Many staff members are bi-lingual and there is rarely a wait time. As an added bonus, the office decor is stylish, contemporary, yet professional.

I hadn't been to the dentist and was scared about returning after so long, but everyone at Elite Dental was great and put me at ease. What I really liked about this dentist office was that you can tell that thepeople working here are really nice, happy, and love their job. It was a great atmosphere, which I never really considered as a criteria for choosing a dentist before now.

I am a patient at the Wheaton, MD location and will remain there. Dr. Walker engages his patients while in the chair and, in an attempt to ease any anxiety he explains what to expect in plain language. An added bonusis that the hygienists and office staff are all very knowledgeable in their respective fields. I have always had a pleasant experience.

I went to Elite Dental by recommendation. Dr. Walker was very professional, but yet created a comfort. The office is very welcoming from the front desk to the dental chair. While the office has modern and beautiful decor, it is theattention and expertise provided that makes Elite Dental a definite choice. To note, I don't normally do reviews, however, Dr. Walker knew exactly what my dental issue was before I even explained. So, I am sharing my experience with Elite Dental to all who are indecisive. You will not be disappointed.

What can I say but 'PHENOMENAL'!!!!!!!! When I entered the office, I automatically felt the time that was put into making me feel wanted through the decor. Some offices that i've walked into felt that the walls were only there tojust have a place for business , BUT not here AND before I knew it, I was being called back~so fast! I did NOT spend a day waiting to be seen! Now to the dental service! Again~PHENOMENAL! (By the way, Everything was so high tech!!!) :) On my first visit, I had a full and I mean FULL exam and my teeth cleaned. I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH CLEAN TEETH! Now to the next visit. At my previous dentist, I had a crown put on several times and it kept falling off. When I went to that dentist, he just examined me and put some material into my mouth to send it off for the crown. NOT here! Dr. Walker PREPARED my teeth so WELL for this procedure! I thought it was going to in and out, But what he did was SUPER. I don't know everything that he did, however it was a REAL preparation! He even had a machine that took a picture to send off for the crown ~didn't have to mail the crown in~it was received instantly ~WOW! I really can't explain it ~~ it was really high tech!!! He constantly made sure that I was not in any pain, his voice was so comforting, he did not rush me in and out, he made sure that my bite was just right and gave me clear directions on what to do when I left and WHY ~ he explained everything so well. I know I must be leaving something out, but just want to say~Thank you Dr. Walker and staff for ALL that you did to make me feel wanted~from the money and time you put into your office not only with the decor, but with the Superb High Tech equipment, to being extremely pleasant, punctuational and professional AND for the THOROUGH Work you did in my mouth! Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU Dr. Walker!!!!!!!

I love this practice and highly recommend Elite Dental! Dr. Walker is excellent: very attentive, precise, and friendly. The other practitioners and staff are just hands down the best dental team I've ever interacted with: extremely knowledgeableand professional, respectful of my time, and stellar customer service skills. I moved away from the neighborhood where the office is location, but still commute to Elite because I don't think I'll find a better dentist.

My name is Patricia Acosta. I have always been terrified about going to a dentist. When I finally got the nerve to start taking care of my teeth more thorough I saw the Elite Dental right next to my apartment. Tomy heavenly surprise I was first treated by Dr. Walker. I was at ease during the whole exam. Now I keep all my dental appointments with great pleasure and big smile. Dr. Walker is beyond a blessing, his staff is phenomenal!!!! I recommend Dr. Walker and his staff 100%.

Dr. Khalfani was great. His office was clean and his reception staff was friendly. His assistant was kind of rough when doing my cleaning but whatever. What completely turned me off from his office was the constant calling, texting and emailsabout coming back for my follow up. I was told I needed another cleaning under the gum line and that a filling needed to be repaired. I had to cancel the day of my appointment and said I would call back to reschedule and that's when this went downhill. One day I received a call, text, email and voice message within 20min of each other. Even when I changed the contact settings on my patient profile to emails only I would still receive calls about it. One day Dr. Khalfani himself called me, at this time I had no insurance coverage and was working pt, I let him know this and proceeded to tell me about insurance plans I could get then cancel after getting my dental work done. -___- Very annoying.
