When Dr. Mehdi Yousefi opened this practice in 1994, it was called the Yousefi Washington Clinic, and the philosophy was simple: provide quality dental care and exceptional customer service to each and every patient. Years later, his daughter and her husband have taken over the practice and rebranded it as Washington Metro Dental. Keeping things in the family has made Dr. Mehdi a proud father with abundant peace of mind. It is a comfort to him knowing that his existing patients will continue to receive the excellent care they are accustomed to, and that new patients will experience the Yousefi difference firsthand.
I am Dr. Alexis Corbitt Washington, one of your general dentists here at the office. Helping patients achieve their best smile makes each day exciting!I graduated from North Carolina State University with a bachelors degree in Biological Sciences and a masters degree in Nutrition: Food Sciences. I went on to pursue my dental degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (rival schools, I know!). I continued my training at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, completing a general practice residency.
Following a six-year career providing dental care to homeless veterans at the DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center, I am bringing my love for dentistry and comprehensive care to Washington Metro Dental.I am, and will always be the consummate educational enthusiast! As such, I am a member of the DC Dental Society, the Greater Washington Academy of Dental Studies, and chairwoman for the Robert T. Freeman Dental Society. Keeping current with, and utilizing, the latest dental technology helps me to create a comfortable and relaxed dental environment to care for patients.
I was born and raised in St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands (60 miles southeast of Puerto Rico). I grew up in Americas Paradise, snorkeling and scuba diving in a place rich with culture! Currently, I enjoy finding new beaches around the world to explore and scuba dive. While at home in D.C., my cockapoo, Sheba, and I enjoy parks and dog-friendly wineries.
