A truly amazing experience. I called with a tooth problem. They told me to come right in. I was seen by Dr. Jones immediately and given an x-ray. They knew what was wrong within 10 minutes of walking in the door and talked me through all of my options/timing/pricing.

If I could give 10 stars, I would! After EXTENSIVE research to locate a dentist last year to restart my dental care, after many years of putting it on the back burner, I decided on Navy Yard Dental. It was very important to me, culturally, to have a Black dentist, preferably HBCU educated, with exceptional talent and reputation. This office checked all of those boxes. It was definitely one of the best decisions I've made! The office is modern and beautiful on the inside. It's located in Navy Yard, so the surrounding buildings and landscaping are really nice (just walking distance from the Ballpark). The assistant that works at the front desk is always such a pleasure to interact with, and she reaches out to confirm appointments ahead of time. Scheduling is a breeze and they have always run on time for my appointments. I don't personally see Dr. Chad Jones when I go, I am seen by Dr. Tucker. Dr. Tucker is AMAZING! You feel so comfortable and at ease because she is knowledgeable, super down to earth, relatable, and very careful with her work. She is from the South, and you really feel the southern warmth and hospitality from her. I have had a couple of short interactions with Dr. Jones who was just as nice. The dental assistants in the office are also very welcoming and comforting. I have 0 complaints or gripes. I am sad that I am relocating out of the area and will not be able to return here every 6 months for my dental care. They have left that strong of an impression on me, and I'm usually terrified of dentists! A word of advice for future patients would be to utilize some of the side streets for parking, if available. It is cheaper to pay the meter than to park in the garages in the area. You can't go wrong with Navy Yard Dental! I will miss you guys!

Dr Cole and staff at Navy Yard dental really are exceptional. Great office and music, really convenient to SW and SE Hill. Several times over the past 2 years Dr Jones has made time for me on short notice. Very appreciated. My wife, Daughter and son are patients too! Highly recommend!

I have been going to Dr Chad Jones since I moved to the Navy Yard in 2018 and my experience has been fantastic from the beginning. Anyone who is looking for a Dentist locally I would highly recommend.

I have had built in retainers for over a decade. Anyone who has had one knows it's unbelievably painful when one breaks. I don't have an orthodontist in DC and felt very lost when my retainer broke here. I called dozens of dental and orthodontic offices to try to find someone who could help me. Not only did Navy Yard Dental answer my phone calls and e-mails, but they also were able to get me in for an appointment the week of. Dr. Jones was kind and very professional. I was in and out in under an hour. The receptionist was also helpful, explained everything, etc. I would recommend their office to anyone!

My husband and I had a really frustrating and disappointing experience with Navy Yard Dental. After a move and transition to a new dental office, the staff at Navy Yard Dental were unwilling/able to transfer a complete set of our dental x-ray records to our new provider. After an exhausting back-and-forth with Navy Yard Dental, their staff eventually relayed to us that they had lost some of our medical records and had no way of retrieving them. This resulted in us needing to pay for a new set of x-rays out-of-pocket at our new dental provider. We were really disappointed not only in having to incur an additional expense due to Navy Yard Dental's poor record keeping, but also their lack of transparency and professionalism in helping us come to a solution.

Navy Yard dental is THE BEST dental care facility in DMV. They are excellent in customer service and execution! Navy Yard dental took care of our chef when he had a broken tooth that got infected. They fixed him up in 30 minutes!

I had a terrible tooth that was infected. I drove 4 hours just to come to Dr. Jones because I know how great his quality of work is. It is very compassionate with his patients and makes you feel at ease. I would recommend for anyone to come visit Navy Yard Dental. The staff and assistants are amazing and the office is modern with up to date technology. This definitely the best dental office in the area.

I cannot say enough good things. The reviews are really that good for a reason. It was easy to book an appointment online. I was nervous after not going to the dentist in too long, but everyone was friendly, relaxed, and put me at ease. No wait time at all. Everything in the office was super up to date. Cleaning was totally painless. Dr. Jones was so relaxed and easy to talk to. My biggest concern was that a dentist would overcharge me or surprise me with a big bill. The opposite was true. They even took time to check my insurance and explained how much a procedure would cost without me asking. There was no pressure to get anything done and full transparency about the cost. I was so thrilled. I will recommend this practice to everyone I know!
