Dr. Ali Fatemi helms family dental offices in Lexington Park and Gaithersburg, where he practices the techniques that he mastered at the Columbia School of Dental and Oral Surgery in New York. Working with children, adults, and seniors, the doc delivers everything from basic checkups to Invisalign braces. Filtered-water lines run through both offices, carrying bacteria-free fluids for use during biannual checkups and dental cleanings, and an arsenal of digital-x-ray machines cut radiation by 90% compared to conventional systems.
To plug cavities, the doctor forgoes metal fillings in favor of tooth-colored materials that are free of the mercury that some believe can negatively affect health and the chrome that everyone knows can attract insatiable car crushers. Thanks to his license in sedation dentistry, Dr. Fatemi can spare his patients stress by lulling jittery patients into a blissful slumber.
Dr. Scarlett Logsdon and her professional staff keep smiles healthy and aesthetically pleasing through dental services that include crowns, bridges, and whitening treatments. They take care of developing teeth with pediatric dentistry, and preventative care such as regular cleanings enables them to ward off disease as teeth grow up and become defiant.
Voted one of the top dentists in the Washington metropolitan area by Washington Consumers' Checkbook, Dr. Henry Lee has served the dental needs of the Olney and greater-Washington community since 1979. After receiving his MS degree from the University of Notre Dame, he furthered his smile-tweaking training at the University of Maryland, where he was elected a member of the Prosthodontic Honor Society and the Phi Beta Cavity fraternity. Lee was also elected a fellow by the American College of Dentists in 1997, an honor bestowed on less than 3.5 percent of all dentists in the United States. A participant in the Ethics Summit's drafting of the U.S. dental code of ethics, Dr. Lee strives to respect the rights of patients and never takes an x-ray without asking the tooth's permission first.
Dr. Namita T. Chaudhary graduated magna cum laude from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, and her specialized education and experience with patrons of all ages shine through during general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. After sessions, she calls her patients to check up on them and provides her personal cell-phone number so they can ask questions and check if her refrigerator is running. The staff keeps up with the practice's technology by attending courses and seminars, which prepare them to use a laser cavity-detection tool and a ViziLite oral-cancer screen. Sandwiched comfortably between the treatment chair and a toasty blanket, guests open wide while watching movies, or listening to music and taking in the window's sweeping view.
When Dr. David Pinsky opened State of the Art Dental Group in 2001, it was the culmination of a dentistry career that at that point had already comprised nearly 20 years of experience. Now, together with Rustin Levy, DMD, and Ira Reiz, DMD, Pinsky delivers general dentistry and orthodontic services ranging from root canals and extractions to the popular Invisalign teeth-straightening method. Unlike lifelong cave dwellers, the doctors are comfortable exploring the area outside of the mouth—they also provide skin-smoothing injections that reduce the appearance of wrinkles for up to one year.
