Verified Patient Reviews
The office is a bit old-fashioned/ run-down but the staff is very pleasant and Dr. Salameh is great! He's so nice, professional and patient.
I've been here a couple of times and am always greeted warmly, and seen promptly. Tareq did a good job of presenting treatment options, and listening to my concerns to get to a solution that fit me.
Dr. Salameh was absolutely fantastic. Made me feel comfortable, had a great chairside manner. Told me exactly what was going on and what needed to be done. I will be going back!
Dr. Salameh is friendly, direct, and respectful. I will continue to see him as long as I am in the area and will gladly recommend him to others. Thank you for your great work!
Dr. Salameh was very friendly, professional, helpful in answering my questions, and funny! I actually enjoyed my dentist appointment.
Always great service!! Dr. Salameh takes his time and answers all my questions.
quicker than most dentists - pleasant and courteous
The office is a bit run down and the receptionists seemed flustered. Bedside manner wasn't great but I was able to make an appointment just 2 days in advance. I just needed a check-up and annual cleaning, that aspect went well.
Dr. Salameh is efficient, kind, helpful and really friendly. Have always had such a good experience with him - highly recommended!
Very easy, friendly, and convenient.
Excellent experience with Tareq. Thoughtful, thorough, and had a nice and efficient team.
Dentist was amazing and his staff were just as wonderful. Explained everything and was very supportive to someone that was a little nervous :)
The office felt a bit unusual, but I was very reassured by my interaction with Dr. Salameh himself. In addition to my regular cleaning, he discovered and filled a cavity during my visit. He was efficient and sure-handed, and I could tell that he and his assistant took great care to make the procedure as fast and painless as possible. The office had a quick new patient registration process and I waited virtually no time.
Outstanding service! Explained everything he was doing. Made me feel easy about the procedure and may suggestions on what I should do moving forward. I randomly picked this dentist office, however they were a blessing waiting to provide exceptional service to me. The entire staff provided Excellent customer service. I picked a winner!!
He did not exhibit any patient care. He did not explain precisely what was wrong with my gums. He gave me a deep cleaning that was unsuccessful in removing my tartar buildup (I am still bleeding from my gums). He did both sides of my gums in the same day. It appears he is more interested in getting as many patients in and out of his office as quickly as possible than providing adequate dental care. To make matters worse, the front desk originally said they accepted my insurance; but, I found out weeks later that it was actually out of network and it was entirely paid out of my own pocket. Stay away!
I really enjoyed my first visit to Dr. Salameh's office! The staff were all extremely professional and courteous. I was impressed that Dr. Salameh met with me right away and took care of me personally and discussed my dental health directly -- rather than leaving the exam to an assistant and popping in at the last minute as my previous dentist did. He also offered free whitening as part of my visit as a new patient, which I deeply appreciate.
The visit was nice. I did not have a long wait. The dentist was fine. The cleaner was a little harsh but it was done well. They were very thorough and explained everything to me. I will be going back for a follow up appointment.
As ever, I think he's great.
Fast and efficient, I was in and out in no time (though it helps that I'm genetically blessed with really good teeth)
Best experience I could have asked for! Happy to have found a dentist in the city that I look forward to visiting in the future. Salameh and his whole team are a delight!
The dentist was professional and efficient, although it was clear he was trying to sell me additional services. The assistants, however, were difficult to work with - their English could be improved and generally seemed anxious. Most of my questions were met with defensive answers, even if they were simple questions.
Dr. Salameh was excellent. The main thing I will say is that whenever a dentist says clearly: If you want me to stop, no problem, just lift your hand up - they get my appreciation. Will surely go back in the future.
Awesome. Very professional. Highly recommend.
I'm pretty picky about dentists even though I don't really have any dental issues. I'm a new transplant to DC and my first try at a new dentist 6 months ago was horrible so I couldn't go back to her for my scheduled cleaning. Dr. Salameh was excellent in his bedside manner, did the cleaning himself, accepted my insurance, and gave me pricing on some options before we proceeded. I will definitely be going back to him.
Great, he squeezed in my fillings last minute and was very efficient.
Second visit here. I didn't have to wait at all and the cleaning was very quick. The cleaning was a little more rough this time than last, but maybe because my gums were more sensitive. Would come back!
Dr. Salameh was wonderful. He was very gentle with my cleaning because he saw that my gums were irritated. In addition, they give you a treatment plan with the costs, so you can see what your insurance covers, which I really appreciated.
Everyone there was great. Very friendly and told me every step of the way what was going on. I had a horrible experience with my previous dentist so I was very nervous about going to another dentist. Both gentleman, the dentist and his assistant, we're amazing. They were so nice and welcoming. I will definitely continue to use them.
Very professional and friendly staff. Great location, right off the metro. Appointment was quick and efficient. This is a great option for anyone who appreciates great service and values their time!
His office was very good have showing me the health of my teeth, and was quick to give me pricing on additional procedures I needed.
He's a fantastic dentist who cares about his patients.
Tareq is excellent, very accommodating, highly reccommend.
Very nice doctor. Highly professional and skilled.
One of the most pleasant trips to the dentist I've ever had. Everyone was nice, polite, and professional, without being overly chummy. The whole process, checking in, x-rays, cleaning, seemed both efficient and thorough. Tareq Salameh was clear and not overly lecture-y.
I've found my visits here to be reliable and easy--I am in and out quickly, they are always very receptive to my concerns, and appointments are always on time. I would highly recommend!
Everyone in the office was weirdly brusque. Not rushed, just ... weirdly quiet. Normally I'm fine with people not making smalltalk (especially when they have drills stuck in my mouth), but it was very odd. The office was dark and not very neat, and they seemed confused about where I should put my backpack. The dental work itself was fine, the dentist was good about letting me know what he was doing and showing me what he saw, but I don't think I'll go back there.
Would definitely recommend Dr Salameh. Very friendly and good dentist.
This guy is the worst dentist I've ever experienced. I went in to get a couple of cavities filled and to get a broken tooth fixed. He literally filled teeth that didn't have cavities, and the broken front tooth he fixed crumbled apart within 10 days. To make matters worse when I went to a different dentist to get the work redone I had to pay out of pocket since the insurance wouldn't cover the same work on the same broken tooth in the same calendar year. Really nice guy, friendly staff, incompetent dentist.
Great dentist! Got me in 5 min early. I was done in 20 minutes. They have a great system, are very nice and I'll be back!
seemed rushed and hasty throughout procedure
I was a great visit. Very professional and I was in and out quickly.
Came in for a cleaning, and Dr. Salameh found a few cavities that he quickly filled on the spot. I was terrified (any sort of procedure gives me a mild panic attack), but he did a great job of easing my anxiety. The staff was friendly and efficient as well.
So professional. I recommend this.dentist. comfortable office. I wwill be taking the rest of our family members to them. When my previous appointment would not work for them they contacted me confirmed a later appointment 30 mins later. I arrived on time and was ushered right in. Great staff excellent dr.
Very pleased with the individual attention given. He was very happy to share his advice and knowledge about anything I asked about. Other than that, he was very careful cleaning everything and made sure I was comfortable the whole time.
He had a great team. Office was clean and organize. But for cleaning, I think he can probably hire a hygienist. He was a bit rough and I felt like I could have just clean my own teeth. Otherwise he was knowledgable and had good bed side manner.
Good dentist. My filling was quick and pain-free.
I was pleased with my visit. The office was comfortable, not too busy, and the receptionists were exceptionally patient and helpful with gathering my insurance information. Dr. Salameh and his staff were friendly and thorough, but a little quieter than I'm used to with past dentists! It did not seem like a family dentist office.
I had a great experience. The entire office staff was friendly and efficient.
First time with DDS Tareq ..he is the best in DC area..thank you doctor for the best job you did to me..
I went with Dr. Salameh because I was in pain because of my wisdom teeth (I'm 28 by the way). I really liked Dr. Salameh because he was straight to the point and very considerate. Other doctors I called tried to sell me a cleaning before even considering extracting my wisdom teeth. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Salameh acknowledged that I was in pain and that I couldn't even open my mouth, so having a cleaning before the surgery had no sense. Instead, he recommended me to get the cleaning when I recovered from the surgery. As for the surgery, the procedure was very smooth and gentle. I was done in less than 30min! I actually spent more time waiting for the anesthesia to work than in the actual extraction. I followed his post-surgery instructions and was fully recovered 4 days after! Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Salameh and I will definitely go back to his office soon!
Overall he and his team were excellent
Dentists are often scary. He isn't. He is kind and generous.
Not 100% sure what to think of Salameh. My teeth have been fine since going to him, and he does a good job, but his bedside manner needs some work. I feel sometimes I am at a car dealership when I go there, where they are trying to get more money out of me. Also, I understand it is his culture, but when he and his assistant speak in another language it does not come ass as professional. My last appointment with him, he said I was good to go and just left the room. He left the "bib" and glasses around my neck. Not that I can not take that stuff off myself, because I did, but I also had no idea where to put them, so I just placed it on the counter. A DDS or his/her assistant should be taking care of that.
I felt very welcomed, I'm always nervous gooing to the dentist office but today I felt really comfortable
I will definitely continue going to him as my dentist.
Excellent dentist and excellent staff. Personable and professional.
Seriously, I never thought I would be so tempted to give highest ratings after the dentist visit. Great practice and a wonderful doctor: patient, explained everything, quoted prices for all the procedures, worked fast and smoothly - I am very happy with my choice this time!
It was great!!!
Great guy. Would go again.
DDS Salameh, was quite professional, and explain things in a very clear and uncomplex manner. the staff was out-going, yet still quite professional in their approach.
It had been 2 years since I had been to the dentist, but it seemed a bit odd that in that time I have 5 fillings that needed to be replaced. Dr. Salameh felt the need to show me with a mirror why each of my fillings needed to be replaced - like I am going to have the dental knowledge base to make the call myself. At the time, I thought it was really odd, but I guess this is sometimes a common practice for dentists. I don't really know what to think. I currently have a follow up appointment planned, but might cancel it.
Awesome! Very quick and professional.
Dr. Salameh is the best dentist I have found in DC. I appreciated how honest and up front he was about my treatment plan. He is committed to helping his patients -- unlike many dentists in DC and NOVA who are out to milk their patients for as much $$$ and as many extraneous procedures as they can.
HE GAVE ME A LOT OF INFORMATION THAT WAS BENEFICIAL TO ME AND MY SMILE! THANK YOU
A little rushed, but overall good experience. Long wait time, but I got over that.
He was concise and direct about what I needed to do. But also easy to understand.
all in all, I liked him.
Half way through the appointment it was discovered that Dr Salameh did not take my insurance unfortunately, however he was kind enough not to charge me! Thanks doc.
He was awsome I haven't. Been to the dentist in years but he didn't mind that he was focused on helping me get my teeth where they need to be and his front desk staff is very friendly and professional I really look forward to my.next visit
Went to this office in December '12 and they recommended a root canal for a capped tooth because of risk of infection and referred me to a specialist. Next month, before I could even book an appointment with a specialist I was felled by an excruciating toothache. Other specialists refused to see me on an emergency basis, Dr. Salameh agreed and performed an immediate root canal. I experienced some lingering pain afterwards from the infection, again seeing a specialist (endodontist) did not help one bit (he told me I would have to live with the pain forever), but Dr. Salameh stuck with me until everything was resolved. I felt like such a pest going back to the office for many follow-ups, but he was amazing. Several rounds of antibiotics and appointments later I am pain-free. I'm so glad I found this office before the tooth infection occurred or I would still be wrestling with specialists and suffering.
He was great and professional.
Root Canal- In and out in less than an hour. A true prince.
Overall, he did good work on the two fillings that I needed for minor chips. However, I had to wait for 45 minutes before being seen and Dr. Salameh seemed rushed and unorganized. There was not a good explanation of the process he was going through and the cleaning I received was one of the messiest and least professional I've ever had.
Dr. Salameh is one of a kind. My appointment was schedule for 1:30 pm but I arrived early so he took me early so we could get a jump on the treatment. He cleaned my teeth personally, took care of some fillings, and accommodated my needs in a timely manner. Would recommend him to the entirety of D.C.
It was good. I was attended to as expected. The treatment was good. Thank you
They were all very helpful and friendly. Location is really convenient.
The staff members were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was very comforting. They answered all my questions.
He was very nice and explained to me in a kind way.
It was great
Dr. Salameh was great. I had to go in for three fillings. He took time to show me the damage to my teeth and explained why the procedure was necessary. This was extremley important to me because of a past experience. I asked for the copay estimate for the service and the price was less than expected. The procedure went well, and the front office staff were friendly and professional. I scheduled my next appointment before leaving. The office is also located across the street from the metro. Easily accessible and convienent! was under what I had expected.
Dr. Salameh was excellent. I haven't been to a dentist is 10yrs. because I was terrified of dentists...so I was prepared to be told how bad I neglect my teeth speech, but he didn't. Anything he told me what needed to be done to protect the the quality of my teeth & the procedures that have been done. I finally found a great dentist
Hard working, very intelligent
Dr. Salameh was very friendly and welcoming. He was thorough in explaining my x-rays as well as the procedures I was going to have done.
He was great! I got a cleaning, fillings and a tooth extraction in less than 2 hours!
excellent staff and team. would highly recommend to others.
Dr. Salameh and his staff were perfect. I ended up going in for an emergency visit, and left with four fillings and some chip repair. He did wonderful work and he and his staff were very comforting when I became tense and overwhelmed. I will definatley be back to see him!
DOCTOR SALAMEH WAS VERY ON TOP OF THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF MY VISIT. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANY ONE IN THE WORLD. ALSO I HAVE TO VISIT HIM IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS FOR A ROOT CANAL. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING HIM SOON. THANKS DOC.
Very nice, helpful, and professional. I love him , he was awesome.
He was patient attentive and very friendly.
Very efficient and well-performed, but tends to not explain things (procedures, treatments, costs, etc.)
Dr Salameh was very professional, friendly, and comforting. I will recommend him to anyone I know looking for a great dentist. His staff is great as well.
This is my first time with Dr. Salameh so it is hard to properly evaluate him beyond what I have indicated above. The appointment served more as a consultation as he took some x rays and told me I needed to reschedule for a root canal therapy procedure. He apparently could not access all of my x rays because of a problem with the machine or reader. I am a bit nervous about my upcoming appointment with him since it is my first time undergoing such a procedure. I would like to discuss with him in greater detail how i can better take care of my teeth in order to avoid such procedures in the future. I am also interested in other services that may be cosmetic in nature such as whitening and changing the color of existing fillings to better resemble my natural teeth. Also, I am long overdue for a cleaning.
The staff was pleasant and professional. The office was convenient and well-appointed. However, I was not satisfied with the doctor. I went for a routine cleaning. Many X-rays were taken, but he offered no discussion on the condition of my teeth before or after the cleaning. He sat behind me and leaned my chair back so far that I felt like my head was in his lap. He cleaned my teeth and got water all over me and in my hair. It was awful and I'd never go back.
Basically I found it painful, but it wasn't his fault. He seemed exhausted by a stressed out staff, overall a lot of waiting and repeating and actually rather painful.
Dr. Salameh seems entirely competent, but his cleaning was rough, and seemed short -- much shorter than cleanings I've had in the past. His bedside manner is also, frankly, not very good. He is not very friendly, and he seemed oddly reluctant to engage about my dental health.
I think there customer service could have been better. She didn't know anything about geting the insurence.
I enjoyed the friendly office and the personal attention to my particular circumstance. I scheduled my appointment at the same time as my mothers, to be able to do that was important. Also my mother has dementia and the doctor treated her with great respect. I am disabled I found the office very accessible.
I loved Him!!!!!!!
GREAT experience with Dr. Salameh and staff... They got the job done VERY fast and painless... I referred my fiancé and her appt is on Monday. This place and these people are WONDERFUL!!!!
0n a 1 to 10 scale, I'd give him & his office staff a 10
Not enough relaxing equipment, no headphones, no happy gas, no distractions from th noise of th equipment or procedures necessary
He talked me through the things I did not know, and convinced me to floss. He was great.
He was very friendly and professional. Went above and beyond! I will definitely be seeing him again.
