My first appointment here and so far my favorite dentist ever! The staff is so friendly and helpful, and they didn’tmake me feel bad for it being my first cleaning in a long time. I really appreciated their thoroughness and taking the time to review everything carefully with me. I was taken back right on time, too. Highly recommended!

Front staff members were very welcoming and pleasant. There was no wait time. The assistant was knowledgeable friendly. Images were taken of my teeth condition before and after treatment with Dr. Janbakhsh, which I greatly appreciated asit demonstrated her capabilities but also her desire to educate the patient My initial encounter with Dr. Hanbakhsh and her team was astounding! I look forward to continuing my dental care with her and referring to my loved ones. Highly recommend.

Christine (Dental Hygienist) and Dr. Jan were very thorough and polite! I went in for a Dental Cleaning and it's the best one I've ever experienced. I highly recommend paying them a visit. I also appreciate how Christine and Dr. Janexplained everything before beginning my cleaning; Dr. Jan sat down with me and reviewed the pictures of my teeth pre-cleaning to show me what was being removed. Once again, I highly recommend!

The best dentist I've ever been to! Always thorough and procedure details explained. Always pain free. Dr. Jan is always concerned about you and makes sure you're doing fine during the treatment....as far as dental work.... It doesn't get better than this.

This is my second visit with Dr. Jan and I am so happy with her and her staff. As a single mother of two with a full time job, the hours are great and cater to my busy schedule. Molly isvery attentive and follows up great. Dr. Jan worked on a plan with me to get me a healthy and happy smile and Consuelo walks me through everything going on. They are a great team!

I love this office! There is almost never any wait at all, and I'm always there less than an hour. The people who work there are very nice and as someone who really hates the dentist, this office is the best I have been to so far.

She's quick, and does a lot of the work herself. I have only seen one Dental Assistant there but I never have to wait too long. And even with my insurance, I was charged much less at this office than other places for filling cavities.

Dr. Janbakhsh has been my dentist since I moved into the DC area bout 4 years ago. She has helped me through some scary dental issues. She is highly professional, always updating her knowledge and balances it all with a 'greatbedside manner'. She treats me more like a friend than a patient. I would and have highly recommended her to my friends.
