Dr Darwish is fantastic. This was my second visit - the first was a check-up, and this was a follow-up appointment to address a few cavities. Her manner is professional, kind, and more than anything, I appreciate her invitation to givefeedback. I moved to DC within the last 2 years, and I am so pleased to have found Dr. Darwish. I also value the service provided by the full office staff. I needed to change this appointment from a previously scheduled date due to a medical issue, and they were kind, flexible, and responsive. They also called my insurance company for me and explained my dental benefits so that there have been no surprises in terms of bills. Super thankful!

I scheduled a routine clean up recently and I've always wanted a Dentist like Dr. Darwish. She is very caring and gentle with my teeth, I always feel like I'm in good hands. She showed me my xrays on the monitorand explains everything in depth. Super friendly staff, a well experienced doctor and the latest technology. Everything is top notch. I've been going to this dental practice for several years now and it's one of the best decisions I've made so far. Thank you Doc! Keep up the good work!

Best dentist ever! Dr Zohra Darwish is simply superb. She is a meticulous professional and very methodical in her approach. Her engaging yet calming bed-side manner coupled with the serene environment of her office makes you feel like you'vejust been to the spa rather than the dentist. Highly recommended!

Zohra and her husband are both so kind! I really appreciated that when I can in, they check what procedures my insurance would cover and advised me accordingly. Everything was very clear and they were very understanding. Zohra did an excellentjob cleaning my teeth and I feel like I can really trust her advise. I will absolutely come back for my next check-up and would trust her with any dental procedures I need in the future.

Dr. Darwish is great, and I would absolutely recommend her. She does the x-rays, cleaning and exam herself, is very thorough and gentle, and offers very practical recommendations for better care (nothing invasive or expensive unless it'struly needed!) as she goes. The receptionist is very kind and checks on insurance and such immediately, and I had a wait time of all of 5 minutes. A++!

Upon entering, the clinic is very clean, and the atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming. Her receptionist, who I believe alternates between various family members, is always smiling, patient, and helpful. I arrived a few minutes early for myappointment, and was shown in to the exam room at my exact appointment time. Dr. Darwish is extremely affable and seems genuinely interested in your dental and general wellbeing. During the procedure, she does an excellent job communicating what she's doing and what sensations to expect. I'm very happy to have found such a great practitioner in such a convenient location.

Dr. Darwish was extremely professional, thorough, and compassionate. She made me feel very at ease and explained what she was doing while doing it, including letting me know my insurance would cover the x-rays she was doing (which I was duefor, and were at my request). She performed the dental cleaning herself, not a dental hygienist. Everything about my visit was courteous, from the receptionist, to Dr. Darwish walking me back to the front desk. The location is convenient, and I had no problem getting an appointment at a time that worked for my schedule. I am so glad to have found such a phenomenal dentist who took such great care of my teeth!

She is one of the best dentists I have ever seen. During the treatment, she made sure I was comfortable and that I wasn't feeling any pain along the way. I had a badly infected tooth that needed to come outand Dr. Darwish was so gentle and it was indeed a pain free procedure. Later that evening she personally called me to see how I was doing. A truly caring doc!
