I've been going to Doctor Kristallis for 5+ years and he's been wonderful. Coupled with Ann who runs the front desk, I have had great experiences scheduling and receiving dental care from Alpha Dental

Seeing Dr. Kristallis and his team is always a pleasure. Ann is wonderful and sends plenty of reminders ahead of your appointment. I've always been seen right on time and sometimes even a little early if I get there ahead ofschedule. They use a sonic cleaning tool that makes routine visits very fast - I'm usually done within 20 minutes!

As usual, getting in for my regular cleaning was easy and painless. I waited less than 5 minutes (spent chatting with my favorite front desk person, Ann), then was out of the office within 30 minutes. Happy to hear they willbe moving to a bigger office, not too far away from their current location, soon.

Dr. Kristallis is great! I have been going here for 5 years and I recommend him to others 10/10 times. The office is small, but it allows for the staff and Dr. Kristallis to get to know you. Everyone is veryfriendly, I always get in right away (sometimes earlier!), and my appointment is efficient.

Awesome dentist! I've been seeing him for years - never an issue (and I am very picky). He even put in a post and crown for my implant - perfect. He's kind and really cares about his patients and is softspoken. Love this doc! Ann runs his office, and she is efficient, friendly, and also very caring about the patients. She's been in the business for a very long time and is very smart, helpful, and efficient. Whenever I've needed to get in to see the doc, she finds a way. She's had to juggle many appointments around to accommodate me, but she did it willingly. I didn't even ask. :-)

I've been seeing Dr Kristallis for a decade (after my previous dentist retired), but had no actual work done by him till today (I had no dental problems till now!) when he prepped me for a replacement crown for an oldone that had broken. He worked very fast and thoroughly, and I could not have been more impressed with his skill and efficiency. In addition, he is most pleasant and low-key. While no one can say that going to a dentist is a nice walk in the park (that's the nature of the beast!!) I could not give a higher recommendation or commendation than I gladly do to Dr Kristallis.

Dr Kristallis and his staff are wonderful. From regular cleanings through a host of procedures he has been my go to dentist for the past 5 years. Highly recommended - I have brought friends and family to him and all arepleased. Quick and professional and well versed in the latest technology - never pushes an unneeded procedure and stands by his work until you’re happy.

Excellent visit, as always. I accidentally arrived about 20 minutes early, and the doctor was able to go ahead and see me, which meant I left the dentist even earlier than expected. Everyone from the receptionist, Ann and the hygienists toDr. Kristallis himself is incredibly polite and professional. They always get me in and out in 30 minutes. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kristallis is an excellent dentist. After years of searching through the plethora of pathetic dentists in the DC area a friend referred me to Dr. Kristallis and I have been really impressed. He is thorough and explains work to bedone in a clear way. He is not looking to sell you up on every treatment and his staff are very efficient.

I couldn't recommend this office more. They're efficient, helpful, and very aware of how insurance works. I hardly ever have to wait for more than 5 minutes after my appointment time and procedures never take longer than they're supposed to.The first time I came in, they assessed problems, told me the order they should be taken care of, and after looking at my insurance, helped form a plan to solve almost everything within six months while utilizing as much insurance as possible before the end of the year.

Dr. Kristallis is a very kind, patient doctor with an excellent bedside manner. He won't suggest dental procedures until absolutely necessary (unlike other dentists I've been to in the past). I just had an implant done on 8/4 - no problemsat all - and he made sure I was comfortable with no pain. I highly recommend him to others. His office manager, Ann, is also awesome and keeps appointments running smoothly and the office running efficiently. She will do whatever she can to accommodate the patients.

Hands down the best dentist in DC! As always, Dr. Kristallis was extremely thorough during my teeth cleaning and xrays today. It's a small office so you get to know the dental team really well. Ann was wonderful with following upwith reminders on my appointment in addition to the reminders from ZocDoc. Could not be more pleased with my dentist. He was a great find on ZocDoc!

Every visit to Dr. Kristallis is a good one--he and the hygienist on staff are efficient, thorough and very gentle. They are the best dental team I've ever seen. Ann at the front desk is wonderful--she is excellent at sending timelyreminders, and goes above and beyond working with insurance companies to ensure her patients maximize their coverage. Seeing all on their staff every six months is a true pleasure.
