Welcome to the Washington, D.C. dentist office of Dr. Nishan Halim. Committed to excellence in dentistry and the best possible experience for our patients, our dental care team provides comprehensive care for your oral health needs. Dr. Halim is highly trained and experienced in helping patients in all stages of their lives to achieve a smile that is beautiful, comfortable and healthy.
It is our mission to provide the highest level of dental treatment in a caring, professional environment. We believe that the best care results from focusing on our patients as individuals, not as collections of symptoms. Our methods are thorough, sensitive, and pain-free.
Dr. Halim is a Dawson trained dentist with advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of complex dental problems, often related to the bite. Using the Dawson concepts of Complete Dentistry, Dr. Halim performs a thorough evaluation of your entire occlusal system when you visit with us for routine dental care. This means that we go beyond appearances and the health of the teeth and gums, analyzing the fit and function of your jaw joints. All aspects of your bite should be working together harmoniously with no discomfort- this is the foundation of lifelong oral health and wellness.
