I switched here after a bad dentist experience. Truly the best dentist I've ever had, and the hygienists are so gentle and kind! Everyone is very patient and takes time with you to explain options.

I have not been to the dentist in years and this office came as a recommendation. I was terrified but Dr. Thornton and Jamie crew put me at ease. Sonya my hygienist was amazing and treated me with so much care. Office is clean and comfortable. Front staff are very friendly. They are booked and busy so get in when you can. Angela at the desk is amazing. I left the office smiling and laughing which I did not expect.

I absolutely love this dentist and all the hygienists! They are so professional but also fun and friendly. The office is clean, the music is enjoyable to bop along to while you're in the chair, and they are informative about the process/careful with my sensitive teeth! Honestly the best dentists in DC, they even took me for an emergency filling on a Saturday, when the dentist had to come in just for my emergency. They're customer service is top notch so they are busy! Don't wait to book your appointment and make sure you make it or the reschedule will take a minute.

I've been a patient here for going on 14 years, and the staff and dentists are phenomenal. I've always been a nervous, on-edge patient at the dentist, but the folks at Rusk and Thornton are compassionate, non-judgmental, and gentle, and they've made it possible for me to get regular dental care instead of avoiding it as I used to do. Highly recommend this practice!

I am a new patient and was referred to this office by a friend. Since the very first intake call, I have been unexpectedly over- impressed by this dental office. I have never once had a reason to say that ever in my life.

Great atmosphere from the moment I walked in. The front desk associates were welcoming and friendly. Dr. Van der Linden was kind, thorough, informative, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. I definitely mention trustworthy because after 15 mins with him, I acknowledged that I did need to have my crown fixed, and committed to him being the one to do it. Previously, I had been to other dentists over the years, but just didn't feel a connection. Long story long, this is a great dental office with superior employees. Shout out to Angela at the front desk for great energy and a positive attitude.

This was my first visit to Dr. Van der Linden (Rusk, Thornton Dental Associates WashDC). They used the latest technology to evaluate my dental condition: x-ray, photos of individual problem teeth, and three dimensional imagery of the full set of my teeth which enabled me to 'see' the problem areas and to participate in the educated solution choices. The dental assistants were obviously highly trained and enabled the diagnostic process. Dr. Van der Linden is a well trained, experienced friendly professional who is definitely patient oriented, giving me a feeling of wellbeing. Highly recommend Dr. Van der Linden and the Rusk, Thornton Dental Associates practice.

I started visiting Dr. Thornton 8 years ago and now my entire family sees him for all our dental care. It is rare that you get excited to go to the dentist, but I must say it is always a pleasure when we visit their office. From the warm greetings we get upon check-in to the careful care from the hygienists and the amazing patient rapport from Dr. Thornton, it is always a positive experience. I highly recommend the entire practice!
