A friend told me about WCD and I just left their office after going in to get a tooth chip fixed. I was floored by my experience. From the moment I waked in to the moment I checked out, the entire team was so kind, professional, and helpful. From the front desk crew who warmly welcomed me to the practice, to the dental assistant Teresa who made sure I was comfortable at every step of the way, to Dr. Fordjour who was thorough in his explanations and gave me a few options (and their pros and cons) before I chose how I preferred to proceed in fixing my tooth. (When I asked "do I choose today?" he said "you can, but we can also talk about it until you are ready, if you prefer." I mean, who does that?). Really pleased with my experience, and have changed over to Dr. Fordjour and WCD for my dental needs.

The Washington Center for Dentistry is a very impressive group indeed; It all begins with a beautiful, large, and comfortable open sign-in and waiting area with an eye-popping view of K street from the 8th floor. The doctors and staff are dedicated, focused, and personable, and the goal is clearly the very best dental care. This, for me, came in the skills and very pleasant demeanor of Dr. Elana Shlansky whose insistence on perfection soon revealed itself as a kind of signature. All very agreeable! The whole Washington Center for Dentistry package is extraordinary! Take your mouth there! you won't regret it.

I've never been more excited to see a dentist. Dr. Deutsch and the entire team are fantastic. From my first visit over 10 years ago until now I felt best taken care off from the front staff, to Rachel my hygienist everyone is super professional and caring. Always feel I'm getting the best advice and long time care; never feeling pressured into anything. Weird to say but I love going to this dentist ! Always dragged it before. Thank you to everyone at Washington Center for Dentistry.

I have been a WCD patient for decades. WCD doctors, hygienists and staff have always been professional, courteous, polite, kind and compassionate in their interactions with patients. WCD has always made it a pleasant, warm and positive experience to visit the dentist. WCD always goes the extra mile. They are tops in class. I remain a happy life long patient. Over the decades, when in a different area, the local dentist always asks (in admiration) who performed my dental work. Kudos Dr. Deutsch!!!

I cannot recommend this dental office enough. It is wonderful! Excellent dentists. Caring and experienced staff. Very gentle. They care about your teeth and are honest. No trying to rip you off. They also do everything to make sure you do not feel pain. One of the staff, Trina, worked way after hours one time when I needed some dental business paperwork. She could have waited to provide it to me later on, but wanted to make sure that I had it. They are all like Trina. Very professional, oriented towards service and excellence.

Excellent comprehensive dental practice. The dentists are highly skilled and supported by a staff of pleasant and professional dental technicians, assistants, and hygienists. The administrative staff is equally professional, always pleasant and polite. Going to the dentist is not high on most people's list, but this practice makes the experience as pleasant (and painless) as a dental visit can be. Highly recommend!

Close to five years ago I had a really bad toothache for few days. I went to few dentists and no one could tell me what was wrong. Finally I called WCD and made an appointment and to find out it was a root canal. Dr. Katsaros took care of it. I was so relieved and happy. Everyone at WCD are professional and helpful. I especially love Rachel who is my new hygienist. She is outstanding. She gives me a thorough cleaning. Very gentle. Answers all my questions. The absolute best!!!

I have been going to WCD for a few years now and I always receive exceptional service and care. Dr. Fordjour is an excellent dentist and all of the hygienists and front desk staff are consistently professional and proactive. In particular, Katrina (front desk) went above and beyond to handle an insurance billing concern I had a few months back. While I wish that my insurance could be billed directly, WCD is prompt with sending out invoices so that insurance reimbursement is quick and painless.
