At Claros Dental Care, Dr. Claudia Claros and her experienced staff work to keep teeth healthy with treatments ranging from simple preventive care to advanced technical procedures.

No matter where they are in the country, clients of Dental Professionals of Virginia and Maryland and Neibauer Dental Care are bound to find a dentist just as skilled as the one at home. That’s because more than 400 offices in 19 states are affiliated with the dental network, whose administrative support, guiding principles, and focus on continuing education ensure that their dentists will be talented wherever they work. The company also strives for community improvement—they’ve contributed more than $250,000 to such charities as the American Red Cross, The Oral Cancer Foundation, and the Smiles for Life campaign.
Under the direction of Dr. Farida Khattak, the Dynamic Family Dentistry team maintains high standards in training, safety, and patient education to keep teeth in mint condition. The dentists and hygienists recognize the unease some patients may feel about going on dental visits, which is why they try to create a comforting atmosphere with personalized care and positive demeanors. As the mother of two young girls, Dr. Khattak is particularly skilled in the art of putting children at ease during appointments, as well as synchronized french braiding. She and her staff perform preventive services such as x-rays, cleanings, and periodontal exams, along with more involved procedures such as dental implants and porcelain crowns.
When searching for a new dentist, patients prize a light touch almost as much as they do extensive training or whiz-bang technology. Fortunately, Tarek Mogharbel, DDS—who worked in District of Columbia General Hospital’s oral-surgery department and is a certified Invisalign and Lumineers practitioner—and his partner, Sun Park, DDS, both describe themselves as gentle people. This character trait translates to each of their cosmetic and family dentistry services. The doctors take special care no matter the procedure, whether it’s an exam for an anxious youngster, a teeth-whitening treatment for an adult, or a new set of porcelain veneers for a ventriloquist’s dummy locked in an eternal, unfeeling grin.
With a dentist who formerly served at the Pentagon Tri-Care Dental Clinic and a staff of military-trained dental assistants and technicians, you might think that Amazing Smiles would only be concerned with function, not form. But its trendy mod-style environment surprises with its numerous glittering chandeliers, neon LED accent lights set against white walls, and stark white waiting room complete with a graphic purple rug. Amid such stylish surroundings, Dr. Sylvie Ho and her staff focus on improving appearances with everything from veneers to teeth whitening.
