Dupont Dental - General dentist in Washington, DC

A graduate of the Georgetown University School of Dentistry, Dr. Gary Seiden has been creating great smiles for more than 30 years. His countless success stories and ongoing professional development have positioned him as one of the most sought-after dental practitioners in the National Capital region. Before opening his Washington office, Dr. Seiden built a highly successful family practice in Baltimore. He left that practice in October 2000. Along with spending two months in India, he spent time volunteering at a mission in Ecuador. In March of 2002, he decided to return to private practice, this time, much closer to his Dupont Circle home.

In February 2013, he traveled to Vientiane, Laos, as a representative from Health Volunteers Overseas. He spent time instructing dental faculty and students in areas where they required much-needed expertise.

Seiden is a scam artist. He messed up my teeth a few years back pretty badly recommending dental work I didn't need, without fully explaining the consequences--eg he did some work to straighten chipped edges and LATER told me I shouldn't go around biting into apples and carrots EVER again. He also shaved off my canines during the session for "aesthetic"reasons without ever asking me or getting permission and that has caused me problems down the line. Every time I went to him over the course of a few years, he always pushed more and more work (at exorbitant prices, as some others have noted) that has genuinely made my teeth in much worse shape than they naturally would have been.

I've been so pleased with this place. It was recommended to me by a friend and I've been twice now. This last time I had an issue with my insurance and they were so devoted to helping me figure it out. In fact, Kris pretty much just fixed the problem on my behalf. I'm grateful for Dupont Dental -- it's a clean, beautiful space, and the staff is SO kind and professional! Thanks guys!!

I am a loyal patient at DuPont Dental for many years. They have the best customer service. The staff are cheerful and friendly and the office is conveniently located from my work. I never felt pressured to get unnecessary things done and they provide high quality and impeccable service. I highly recommend this gem of a place. You will not be disappointed.

Every time I come, the dental technician remembers some part of my background, which makes you feel comfortable. Never a wait, in and out within 30 minutes. If you're fed govt, choose Aetna dental and you'll pay nothing for a cleaning and X-rays every 6 months. Office staff handled insurance and I don't have to do a thing. Making appointments is super easy with their email and text reminders. Been a patient for about 3 years, would highly recommend!

This is a lovely office, and Dr. Seiden is a great dentist. However, the billing and insurance practices that this office uses are simply unacceptable and the reason for my low rating. After two standard cleanings and one round of routine x-rays, I received a bill for over $400! Mind you, I had dental insurance at the time of both visits. Unfortunately, this office has decided that they are out of network with every dental plan, and they balance bill patients for any amount not covered by their dental insurance. This is a predatory and frankly unethical practice, and this provider should be held accountable. After numerous calls and emails with the practice, they ultimately dropped my amount due to $240. I will be finding a new dentist.

COVID precautions were thorough and made me feel very comfortable. And I love everyone here. The visit was, as always, thorough and as pleasant as a dental cleaning can be.
