Dr. Alex extracted a tooth for my 6 year old son, and did a great job. We saw him since my son’s regular dentist was not available. He recommended a filling but was very understanding when we told him that wewould like to get this done at my son’s pediatric dentist.

Dr Alex was great! He gave his staff the day off for the holiday and so did everything from checking in to x rays and cleaning himself.

I think I finally found a dentist that is not pushing me to do procedures that I think are not necessary. He was great, attentive, and knowledgeable. Front desk staff was very friendly and efficient too. Quick and easy experience!

Dr. Alex is AMAZING. I waited less than 10 minutes and he was so apologetic. The office is clean and well organized. He walked me through every step of the way of my cleaning and x-rays. He showed me a tooththat was getting close to a cavity, he told me we could wait and monitor it with extra flossing to see if it gets better or he could fill it. I felt informed and no pressure to get it done for money, which has been an issue in the past. We did the filling and it only took an extra 30 minutes. Such a great great doctor, great location, and open late!!

I live in another state and was only visiting DC when I accidentally cracked one of my molars. I had to frantically search for a dentist here and Dr. Alex was fantastic. I am squeamish about dentist and so seeing anew dentist for a major procedure (I needed to get a crown) was terrifying. His staff were amazing and made the process of making a last minute appointment, checking in, verifying insurance a breeze. I’ve never had to get a crown before but Dr Alex was great, professional, friendly, meticulous and has a calming presence. I can’t say enough about Dr Alex and his staff! A+ all around.

I hadn't been to a dentist in several years and had bad experiences with past dentists. But Dr. Alex made me feel at ease and was super non-judgmental.

This review is long overdue. Dr. Alex was excellent in every aspect. I was in a lot of pain and Dr. Alex handled me with the care I would expect from a top notch dentist. I have experienced bad dentists inthe past and Dr. Alex took his time to explain everything to me. He made me comfortable and put me at ease. If you're in search of a new dentist, give Dr. Alex a try. You won't be disappointed.
