    Excellent service, this dental practice was able to set me up for an appointment very quickly, I came in from overseas & needed some urgent treatment for a loose tooth. The whole process was handled very professionally, staff were very friendly & helpful, & very clear & explanatory about what needed to be done; I walked away feeling a huge sense of relief that my dental issue had been resolved, & most likely on future visits to the DC area, I would come here again, without doubt.

    Dr. Berman and her staff are the best! I hadn't been back to work in DC since Covid in 2020 and they got me right in for a cleaning. I have had painful experiences with dentists in the past but I feel safe and comfortable under Dr. Berman's care. I appreciate the entire staff, from dental assistants to the front office, they take time to explain procedures & costs to you and work with you to achieve the most favorable outcome. I highly recommend them.

    I rarely write reviews about specific employees who make their business shine, but Jessica, the Office Manager of the 555 12th St location, has gone above and beyond in terms of customer service--and so I very highly recommend Washington Elite Dentistry. Yesterday, after almost a year of Invisalign and (although 100% satisfied with Dr. Burman's excellent treatment) a bit discouraged by having to wear retainers that were giving me issues for the next year, I came in for a consultation about options as to different retainers. I was past the warranty period, so assumed I'd have to pay for new retainers. But Jessica assured me that she would make everything right, and sure enough, she called me later that day to tell me that she convinced Invisalign to give me new retainers for free. The part that struck me the most was the excitement in her voice when she said she was able to obtain from Invisalign what I was hoping for. This goes above and beyond customer service, and shows that you will be in good hands if you choose this place.

    I have been going to Washington Elite Dentistry for many years. Everyone who works there is so kind. They take the time to explain everything and treat the patients with understanding and compassion. I can't imagine going anywhere else.

    Dr. Harbison was amazing and I can't speak highly enough of his work, professionalism, and courtesy. I went in for an initial intake which consisted of X-Rays, a modeling of my teeth/gums, a cleaning, and a review of future work needed. He explained everything very well and always made sure to ask if I have any questions. On my follow up appointment for a filling, I never felt nervous and he explained everything as he went along. The procedure was painless (shockingly!), quick, and I had minimal recovery time. Again, I can't recommend Dr. Harbison enough, especially for nervous patients like myself.

    I am truly blessed to have found this dentistry, they have changed me as a person, just from changing my smile. Dr. Berman expertise in dental care along with her incomparable team make up a dental family that can't be found anywhere else. It's no exaggeration to say, " They All Honestly care about you and your dental health". Five stars isn't enough when rating a facility that you can't find a flaw in!!!! I love everyone here from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Washington Elite Dentistry and more importantly thank you , Dr. Berman!

    Washington Elite Dentistry is one of the best, if not THE BEST, dentistry offices in the city. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for dental work. The team is extremely friendly, explains everything clearly throughout your appointments, and stays in contact to ensure you are doing well even after any procedures you have. Recently did Invisalign through the office and the whole process was well explained and managed smoothly by Washington Elite Dentistry

    Drs. Berman and Harbison, along with their team, are excellent. After some poor experiences at other local dental practices, I had developed a bit of dentist-anxiety. The compassionate and empathetic care provided by the team make me look forward to coming in for both routine and not-so-routine visits.

    DO NOT GO HERE. I went for three different visits, thinking each time would get better, and they never did. They use temp hygienists who have no idea what they're doing. One time I didn't even see the dentist at all. I asked why, and they said, oh if you want to, we'll bring her in but you're good. I'm at the dentist and not going to see the dentist?... Then, for my last appointment, I need to cancel the DAY BEFORE. I had not gotten any appointment reminders up until the day before, and then was informed when I got the reminder the day before that I would be charged a fee for canceling late. I figured ok $25, sure. THE FEE WAS $100. That is ridiculous. The office was completely unhelpful and disinterested in understanding the situation, especially having not gotten any reminders. I would definitely go elsewhere.

    I am so pleased with my service at Washington Elite! Everyone has been so incredibly sweet and accommodating to me during my ortho journey. I knew I wanted Invisalign, and thanks to Dr. Berman and her team I have a confident simile that I dreamed about for years! They really helped transform how I feel about myself and gave me confidence I didn't know I had. I am so grateful for everything and to the entire staff who work well together and treat one another like a family.

    Dr. Berman and her staff are top notch professionals. I have been going to the office for many years and am always impressed with the treatment I receive. The office is always very efficient with keeping appointment times and the doctor and the staff are phenomenal. During the pandemic I have traveled an hour each way from my house to make these appointments. It would be easy for me to go to a closer dentist since I'm no longer working in the city right now but it is worth the drive to me. Dr. Berman does wonderful work and makes sure that I am always comfortable and not in pain. I am in the process of getting Invisalign done with her as well. Always impressed by this office and their staff. Would highly recommend this dental office.
