The doctors and staff at Gentle Dental Care & Orthodontic Care cover every corner of the dental spectrum with traditional preventive-care methods and a stable of high-tech apparatuses. The team's general tooth-healers keep smiles brightly beaming by purging plaque, tartar, and stowaway tooth fairies during regular cleanings, and exposing hidden cavities or gum disease with digital x-rays. Teeth in need of extra help can turn to the center's resident endodontist, periodontist, and orthodontist, all of whom specialize in restoring teeth with medical problems to a healthier state. During each appointment, dentists and their assistants consult with patients to ensure visitors go into treatment comfortable and familiar with their procedure. The offices of Gentle Dental Care & Orthodontic Care boast advanced equipment to enhance treatments such as tooth whitening, braces, and tooth implants, all of which stay safe and sterile with thorough sanitizing and bubble-wrap packaging.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

AMC Dental Spa's Dr. Ana María Cújar has designed a dental experience that prioritizes patient comfort. When guests see the soothing blue-toned walls, red and orange flowers, and shiny, futuristic black tile floors that resemble the discotheque of a spaceship, they might forget that they're there for services such as teeth whitening or porcelain veneers.
Dr. Cújar has been practicing general dentistry for two decades, utilizing extensive experience and a doctoral degree from El Bosque University, in Bogota, Colombia, where she was taught dentistry for more than 10 years. She has discussed the importance of regular dental care with Felipe Lagos of the Washington Hispanic newspaper.
Under the direct supervision of Dr. Alicia Jones, a graduate of the University of Columbia, the licensed staffers at Reflections administer a variety of aesthetic services, ranging from laser hair removal and microdermabrasion to chemical peels and Botox injections. They also treat problematic skin aesthetics, busting stubborn acne breakouts, freeing legs of unsightly spider veins, and easing the effects of hyperpigmentation.
Reston Center For Dentistry's Drs. Taimour Raja and Rabia Rafiq are so confident that you'll have little to no wait time at their boutique dental office that they've stocked the waiting room with only two chairs. That's not to imply that the waiting room is small. In fact, it's part of a spacious, loft-like space with floor-to-ceiling windows, modern decor, and a kids' area that comes with a bright-green table, stuffed animals, and invisible rocket ships. The waiting-room chairs are spaced apart by a pedestal table covered in magazines and sit atop a cream-colored shag carpet that lies underneath a candle-topped coffee table.
The dentists' dedication to modern times is present not only in the chic decor but also in their extensive arsenal of oral technology, including an intraoral camera. These tools come in handy as the dentists perform their extensive list of services, which range from children’s and family services to cosmetic treatments to sedation dentistry.
Dr. Reza Nikpourfard is able to perform his dental services with the latest technology by frequently taking continuing-education classes and practicing dental surgery on thrift-store teddy bears. In an effort to give back to the community, Dr. Nik volunteers with the Juniper program, an organization that provides dental care to low-income patients with medical conditions.
Dr. Narjes Abtahi, a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia Dental School, restores symmetry to disorderly mouthscapes with Invisalign treatments. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
