I would recommend Dr Laurence and his team to anyone looking for a dentist. They offer friendly customer service, no wait times, advanced dentistry and the best chair side manner I have seen.

I have had wonderful experiences with Dr. Laurence! He explains everything he is doing thoroughly and always checks to see how the patient is doing. Could not recommend him enough!

Dr. Laurence is an amazing dentist. First he accepted me as a NEW patient in a middle of a pandemic (my regular dentist never returned my phone calls and one other dentist took the appointment and never showed up...), and then he proceeded to solve the issue I was having. When even breathing cold air sends you to the roof, you don't need to be a dentist to know that there is something really wrong. Dr. Laurence worked diligently to avoid a root canal (I still needed a crown) and even sent back the crown to have it modified to make sure that it would really cover the entire tooth. He even texted me the day after putting the crown (a Saturday!!) to check on how I was doing! I have never, ever had a dentist or any doctor checking like this. After suffering for more than 3 months, I am finally able to "forget" about my tooth. Some residual sensitivities are still there but I was told that there are normal and should go away. I will update the review in 2 or 3 months if these are still there. Many thanks to Dr. Laurence and his collaborators! Update: More than 2 or 3 months later -- Revised to 1 star. Dr. Laurence treated the WRONG TOOTH. He got me a crown that I didn't need. The "residual sensitivity" was the next tooth still untreated, with an infection that took over the entire tooth. The dentist I went to next is 40-minute drive away but he saw the issue right away and treated that tooth. In addition, I got 2 weeks of antibiotics to stop the infection. Not sure what would have happened if I had not visited that dentist. Will have probably lost my tooth. Dr. Laurence is a nice guy but not a great dentist. Sorry.

Dr. Laurence is a gem! I've worked with a lot of dentists, and am delighted with his service. On the faculty of Howard University, where he teaches and conducts research, he remains current with developments in the field of dentistry and is exacting in his work. Gentle, too! The results are truly welcome. I recommend him highly and without reservation!

I recently had dental implants done by Dr. Brian Laurence and it was an excellent experience. He calmed my fears and concerns, was extremely knowledgeable, very professional, paid great attention to even the smallest of details and was not satisfied until everything was perfectly in place. He called regularly to check-up on me throughout the process to make sure everything was alright. The Front Office staff and all the professional staff in the practice were very kind, very professional, and very cheerful. I highly recommend Dr. Brian Laurence and the entire staff at Christina Mills & Associates.

Everyone in the office was professional and friendly. Dr. Laurence was kind, prompt, and attentive to detail. I needed help with a crown and so far I'm very pleased with the outcome. I'm looking forward to changing my dentist to Dr. Laurence.

I've been a client of Dr.Laurence and Dr. Mills and Associates for some 3, almost 4 years now and I've had nothing short of a wonderful experience. Wonderful customer service and if anything goes wrong, it's taken care of immediatley. I've recieved a great deal of work including redone fillings, root canal referral work and crown prep./construction/application. It isn't often you find a family owned dental practice, let alone black-owned. With every visit, from Kwame at the front desk to everyone behind the scenes, you feel like you're being seen and cared for by family and for that I am forever grateful. I'd definelty recommend this conveniently located practice to any and everyone looking for top-notch care from enthusiastic dental professionals.

Dr. Laurence is a great dentist and very thorough in dental exams. He is extremely professional and explains everything he is doing in detail. He even followed up the day after I got a cavity filled to make sure I wasn't having any pain! I've never had a dentist go above and beyond like that! The office is clean and easily accessible to metro and the receptionist is very knowledgeable and ran my insurance before my exam to make sure I was covered! I highly recommend Dr. Laurence and the entire staff at Christina Mills and Associates!

Dr. Laurence did an amazing job! I went in for a routine check and wanted to fix some cosmetic stuff. He immediately gave me different options and didn't pressure me into anything. Fit me in right away when I had complications. He went above and beyond (and i was a new patient!) I have found my new dentist in DC. You can tell he is very knowledgeable about everything he does and his work shows that!

it took a few years for me to find the right dentist again - and i'm so thankful for Dr. Laurence. always knowledgeable & professional. Dr. Laurence and the staff around him have always been pleasant and thorough in their communications with me as a patient. He is definitely the best dentist i've ever had and i doubt i would be as happy with my results if i had chosen another dentist. Highly recommend!

Dr. Laurence is very professional, caring, and kind. Most importantly. he is very good at what he is doing. I was seen by him a few times and he did an excellent job each time. He cares about the comfort level of his patients and the result of his work. He always follows up to see how you are doing after each procedure too which shows how much he cares about his patients. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a dentist.

Excellent experience with Dr. Laurence!!!. Prior to seeing Dr. Laurence, my front tooth broke so I urgently needed an implant and crown. As one can only imagine, I was extremely nervous and worried about the appearance of the final crown. Would the tooth look real? Would the color match my other teeth? Enter Dr. Laurence......All I can say is that no one believes that my front tooth is not the original tooth. Dr. Laurence was meticulous, professional and patient. He was also knowledgeable and readily answered all my concerns/questions. If you are anxious about seeing a dentist, then see Dr. Laurence as he will quickly put you at ease and you won't be disappointed. The rest of the staff are super helpful too.
