Judith Penski, DDS, began her career as a professional dancer in New York City. After earning her masters degree in dance from NYU, she found herself taking an emergency trip to the dentist. Intrigued by the work her dentist performed, Dr. Penski moved to Washington, DC to attend Georgetown Universitys School of Dentistry. She graduated in 1983 and started this practice. Dr. Penski later met Dr. Margaret Irvin, and they became partners in 1993.

Dr. Penski is a member of the District of Columbia Dental Society, the American Dental Association, and the Greater Washington Academy of Women Dentists. One aspect of her work that she particularly appreciates is the nonverbal communication she engages in with her patients: She draws on her dance experience to help her connect without using words.

Have been going to this practice for several years but they have changed. Made an appointment several months in advance and they changed the time without calling me. Excuse was i was sent an email ( landed in junk mail) On morning of appointment received call i was late when i was actually early for appointment i made. Tamika was rude and made zero effort to accommodate their mistake or apologize. Clearly could not careless about their patients.

Afraid of the dentist? Fearful of exposure during Covid? Me too, and then I had a tooth that had to be crowned. The skillful care and warm attention I received from Dr.Afshar and her assistant allowed me to feel safe and at ease throughout the entire procedure.Throughout the pandemic it was this medical office where I felt the safest.As important,the results were excellent.

I always receive excellent checkups and the hygienist is terrific. I love Dr. Afshar. She's recently wanted a suspicious spot reviewed by the specialist in the practice, Dr. Farzin. He saw me ASAP. He was great and assured me not to worry. I have lots of confidence in the staff in this group and recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist.

Dr. Irvin is the best. She gave me a temporary crown this morning, and she was so gentle, caring, and careful. She has generously and thoughtfully given me her advice on many occasions over the years.

I've been a patient at PIA for 19 years, and wouldn't think of gout anywhere else for my dental care. Because they believe in quality care, and care about their clients, they attract the best staff in every position. With all that is required of them to consider to keep everyone safe during vivid, they didn't miss a beat in care or service.
