Dr. Maryam Mohammadi established the business in 1997, with her flagship location in Washington, DC. In 2003, Dr. Mohammadi opened her second location in McLean, VA and named it Beverly Pediatric Dentistry. In 2018, after over 20 years of providing exceptional patient experiences to children and teenagers in the DC metropolitan area, Dr. Mohammadi decided to expand the services offered by Beverly to adults as well. Dr. Paola Annoni joined the business to bring on her experience in adult and cosmetic dentistry, as well as her expertise in implant dentistry; hence, b. dental studios was established.
Dr. Paola Annoni Patel graduated from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine with her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). Since finishing dental school she has pursued a range of continuing education opportunities, seeking to learn from the leading researchers and practitioners in the field. These opportunities include a Fellowship in Implant Dentistry and Prosthetics with the American Institute of Implant Dentistry and Dr. Hamid Shafie. Through continuing education and her fellowship, she ensures patients always receive the most up-to-date, complete treatment options and achieve their healthiest, most confidently beautiful smiles. Originally from Puerto Rico, she spent most of her growing years in Clearwater, FL, where her parents still live. She, her husband, Ryan, and her son, Ruben, call Arlington home. Ryan is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Ruben, a new addition in 2018, is keeping his parents hands and hearts full while mommy is keeping his belly full! Dr. Annoni Patel loves cooking and all things food. When not in the office, you can find her exploring the DC/VA food scene with Ryan and Ruben, or cooking up something herself. She loves cooking so much she was selected as one of the Top 40 Cooks in America on Season 8 of Masterchef!
