Dr. Rodney McDaniel, Yorktown Dental Care's chief tooth tender, has been fending off dental difficulties with comprehensive examinations and advanced treatments for more than three decades. Aided by his associate, Dr. Irina Novak, Dr. McDaniel surveys mouthscapes for cavities, gum disease, or picture-worthy landmarks to capture with intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays. Custom teeth-whitening kits restore shine to smiles, and meticulous hygienists keep mouth diamonds gleaming with regular cleanings and custom-designed preventative maintenance plans. While tooth tenders dote over smiles, patients relax with headphones, pillows, and heated wraps, and enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks in the waiting room. To straighten up unruly food grinders, Dr. McDaniel also continually educates himself on orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign, which steadily and stealthily shifts teeth until they're straighter than an arrow under a steamroller.
Educated at the Medical College of Virginia, Dr. Dreelin has been caring for smiles in his private practice since 1983. He and his team look after patients' teeth and gums using some of the most modern equipment available in the industry, including intraoral cameras, digital and panoramic x-rays, and Cronut-flavored fluoride treatments. Services span form general preventative treatments to more intensive cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, and the team can make clients more comfortable during appointments with The Wand novocaine delivery system or sedative in gas or pill form.
SmileLabs of Virginia's teeth-whitening experts empower visitors to go toe-to-toe against enamel discoloration with an arsenal of peroxide-based whitening gels, which have little to no effect on tooth sensitivity. During SmileLabs' signature, in-office treatments, patrons sit comfortably in a specially designed chair before wielding an easy-to-use brush applicator to coat their own gumstones in whitening gel. An LED lamp attached to the chair then shines cold blue light at food-destroyers to accelerate the gel's tooth-blanching ingredients. After the half-hour session, clients prepare to flash grins bright enough to temporarily blind an angry, rapidly approaching linebacker.
Voted for Best Dental by the Daily Press Choice Awards, City Center Dental Care fashions sparkling bright smiles with their professional whitening services. Beginning with a consultation, the experienced Dr. Bill Griffin and his team of dental dynamos check teeth thoroughly to ensure they can achieve maximum luminescence from the whitening process and haven’t been accused of biting local politicians. Mouth owners can then relax while the friendly specialists start the Opalescence Boost Whitening treatment, its lightening formula fortified with fluoride and potassium nitrate to help fight cavities and strengthen enamel. The evaluation and whitening process takes about two hours, after which customers will receive their custom-fit, take-home whitening trays, which help prolong sparkling smiles for page-a-day calendar shoots or power outages.
Recently praised for having mom-worthy meatloaf, d’egg diner offers Virginians a menu full of day-long breakfasts, crowd-pleasing burgers, and single hungry-human-approved sandwiches; d’egg west’s menu serves up a similarly smorgas-y selection.

Lunch items for the breakfast-weary include the swiss-on-rye tuna melt, which, in accordance with vegetable zoning ordinance, comes with a tomato at d’egg west ($6.50 d’egg diner/$6.99 d’egg west). The d’egg burger ($6.99 d’egg diner/$7.99 d'egg west) reunites beef and fried eggs 20 years after their nasty ketchup custody battle, with bacon and one fried egg on a cheese-covered patty at d’egg, and two patties, an egg any style, grilled onions, bacon, and mayo at d’egg west.
