I would like to say thank you to Dr. Nana Dickson and her staff. They are very informative when it comes to insurance to billing to information regarding your teeth. I came in multiple of times due to pain and sensitivity and they made time for me without feeling rushed. I would definitely refer them to anyone who needs dental care. 🙂

This is by far the best dental practice I have ever visited. I was very impressed with the whole setup. Extremely clean and very modern. Wonderful set up. Dr. Dickson was so patient and gentle with me. All the staff were fantastic explained everything in detail and were very friendly. I have never felt more comfortable at any other dental practice. Professional in every way possible.
Thank you Allegra Team.

I’m not really sure where to began but my overall experience with Dr. D has been great. She’s very experienced, detailed and thorough. She makes you feel really comfortable and she’s easy to communicate with. What sets her aside is her genuine care and concerns about her patients. I’ve had to get three of my impacted wisdom tooth pulled out and she would often check on me via text and phone to make sure that I was ok. She checks on me often if I am having other procedures being done. I am never worried while under her care. Her hours are flexible with early morning and late night hours. The office is nicely decorated and the equipment is top notch equipment and up to date. The staff is super friendly, I love them all. I’ve never wrote a review for any doctors before but Dr. D definitely deserves one! Go and see her today, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

I am happy to say that Allegra is our new family dentist.  We relocated to the area, gave Allegra a try, and were blown away by our experience.  Dr. Dickson’s staff ensured that every aspect of our visit was both professional and pleasant. I was impressed that the high service levels never changed-whether we were getting a simple cleaning or Invisalign for our daughter.  The office is very clean and the decor is inviting.  Most importantly, the doctor listens, explains, guides, and is simply awesome at her craft.  We are grateful to have found Allegra.

Allegra Dental Center is always clean and inviting; even during the pandemic, I’m not at all concerned about their sanitation and hygiene practices. All the staff is warm and friendly as well. The office is really good about communicating bills and what insurance will and won’t cover- I’ve never been surprised by a bill! Dr. Dickson is amazing! She’s efficient and personable. She communicates throughout procedures to ensure your comfort and is so encouraging for anyone who may be nervous about a dentist visit. She’s never shamed or nagged me about my dental hygiene practices. I needed a procedure done that was out of my budget. She worked with me to create a payment plan so that I didn’t have to wait to get a necessary and pain preventing procedure done. If you’re looking for a new dentist, Dr. Dickson at Allegra Health Center is who you need to see!

Dr. Dickson and her staff were amazing at every step of the way. Love the seamless use of technology throughout the scheduling and intake process–sure beats sitting in the waiting room for 45 minutes trying to remember by group number! They explained everything that was going on at each step. They have by far the most informative and transparent dental experience I’ve ever seen. I only gave 5 stars because the rating system wouldn’t let me give 6!

Michael D. from Gainesville, VA (Source: Yelp)


First off, I’ve always kind of hated going to the dentist and for many years didn’t go at all. That being said I LOVE Allegra Dental Center and strongly recommend it to anyone I talk to. Dr. Dickson is so friendly, thorough, and gentle. Her entire staff is extremely courteous and make each visit comfortable and welcoming. Two Saturdays ago, I was having pain in my bottom right wisdom tooth area, which was due to an infection. After receiving treatment, I got a phone call from Allegra two days later. I figured that maybe my appointment to have the wisdom teeth out needed to be rescheduled or that maybe there was a payment mishap or something like that. I couldn’t have been more wrong, Dr. Dickson was just calling to make sure that I was healing and didn’t have any more pain or problems. I’ve never had a doctor who actually cared enough to follow up after the fact like that. Jumping ahead to this weekend, I had all four of my wisdom teeth out on Saturday. When I arrived, Dr. D informed me that they were running a little behind and that I may want to come back in half an hour. How great is that!? Most doctor’s offices just have you wait and wonder if your appointment will start soon. Instead my wife and daughter and I were able to go walk around outside in the nice weather and come back just in time. The surgery was performed at the office by Dr. Remi Ogunsanya, who was every bit as friendly and attentive as Dr. Dickson. I’ve never had any type of surgery before this and was completely at ease with the entire process. A few hours after the surgery, Dr. Remi called just to check on me. I told him I was doing well but still bleeding. He said that was normal and gave me some instructions to try and help the surgical sites clot. To my surprise he called again a few hours later and said he just wanted to make sure it worked and I was doing well. I thanked him and assured him I was doing well. Two days later, Dr. Dickson called as well to make sure I was healing nicely and because I work in the same building she told me if I liked to just to swing by and she would take a quick look to see how I was healing. I really appreciate her taking the time to do that for me. This office really cares about their patients and their actions prove it. If you’ve been avoiding the dentist, you need to try Allegra Dental Center. If you don’t LOVE every part of your experience with your current dentist, then switch to Allegra Dental Center. You absolutely won’t regret coming here and you’ll know it the moment you step inside.

Always a great visit to Allegra Dental! I actually look forward to my visits. My last visit was on Valentine’s Day and they had donuts and roses for patients, which was such a thoughtful touch! Everyone there from the front desk to the hygienists and Dr. Dickson herself, are all so friendly and kind and seem to genuinely take interest in getting to know you. In the two years I’ve been a patient, I have gone for my routine check ups as well as for a wisdom tooth extraction, and couldn’t have asked for a better experience with them all!

I absolutely love Dr. Dickson & and her team! The customer service is impeccable and best of all there is no pain with any procedure. This is definitely the place for anyone who has a fear of the dentist. I have talked so much about Dr. Dickson; that my mom is coming from Florida to receive her dental care from her as well.

Glenda S. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr D is the best! she made sure to educate me on what i could/should get done, and never made me feel pressured like other dentists! Her second opinion is FREE and boy am i glad i walked in. I will definitely be coming back and i urge you all to go! her schedule is very flexible and she was very accommodating to my needs

Marie A. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


I recently went to see Dr. Dickson at Allegra Dental center and was amazed by her office and staff.  I had a bad experience with a previous dentist and she addressed my concerns and assured me that she will take care of my fillings quickly and with no pain.  I was amazed of how fast and pain less my procedure was and I instantly felt at ease and pain free! I would certainly recommend friends and family members to see Dr, Dickson

I have been a patient at Allegra Dental for over 2 years, and Dr. Dickson and Staff are professional, timely, and welcoming every time! They never offer me treatment plans that I don’t need, and Kate thoroughly explains my billing so I’m not caught off-guard with additional expenses. Its always clean and just an overall warm environment. I love this place!

Erik C. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dickson is the best dentist I have ever worked with, and her practice Alegra Dental is my favorite dental center I have ever been to. Normally going to the dentist is a pain and source of anxiety for me, but Dr. Dickson and her staff are so kind, understanding, and funny! They make the dental experience 5+ stars every time. I have gotten 2 cleanings from them and these have been the easiest, fastest cleanings I have ever gotten. What is even more remarkable is the great support and price I got from their team as I went through Invisalign treatment the last few months. I am very satisfied with my treatment and Invisalign has also been easier than I expected. Thank you Alegra Dental for being the best – I would recommend to anyone!

Jessica A. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is extraordinary from reception to check out. All staff is extremely friendly and professional. The office itself is extremely clean, ambient, and all equipment is modernized. Each appointment, I am seen immediately on time … even a few minutes early once when I arrived early. Lovely hygienists get things started before the doctor comes. Dr. Dickson is fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable and explains everything to you thoroughly. She seems genuinely interested in your oral health and care. Also very friendly (I see where her staff gets it from!) and a great bedside manner — always confirming I was doing ok during procedures. This office is far from home for me but I wouldn’t consider going elsewhere!

Warren P. from VA, VA (Source: Yelp)


I moved to this area about one year ago and was looking for a good knowledgeable dentist. I am 70 years old and have had extensive work on my teeth as well as an implant and looking for someone to maintain my investment in my teeth. It was my good fortune to be referred to Allegra Dental Center and Nana Dickson DDS. I have been with many dentist over the years and had both bad and good ones and would compare her favorably with the best I have seen and would recommend her to anyone needing a good dentist.

Danielle M. from Freehold Township, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dickson and her staff are amazing. Very attentive and she follows up with patients after procedures. The office is upfront about procedure costs and will confirm all of your insurance benefits before moving forward. The office is very modern and welcoming and Dr. Dickson takes the time to answer all of your questions.

Brian R. from Annandale, VA (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist – I think I’ve been twice (for myself) in the past 14 years. Luckily, I have good teeth. My husband, though? Not so much. Once we got married, we knew the dentist was the next stop post-honeymoon. His wisdom teeth were starting to impact, and the rest of his mouth hurt as well. Dr. Dickson and her team are amazing. First, my husband’s English is ok, but not when discussing dental surgery. Dr. Dickson has staff that are entirely fluent, and they made it MUCH less stressful for him. They took an X-ray, decided he was in imminent need of extraction, and made an appointment for the surgery for two days later – TWO DAYS! He also had many cavities, and we scheduled that for the following week, once he had recovered. Dr. Dickson was fully present, warm, transparent, and conveyed an understanding of our comprehensive needs – and expressed the sense of urgency without making my husband panic (a feat in itself), addressing all concerns raised friendly and professionally. Every time we walk in the door, the WHOLE staff knows who we are, and are incredibly friendly. The waiting room is comfortable, and the whole office is state-of-the-art. It doesn’t feel like you’re in a stuffy or sick place, like most waiting rooms with stale magazines and yellow walls. I imagine a child could be pretty relaxed going there, and not be scared and squirmy, feeling like needles are right around the corner. Plus they’ll play the music/tv of your choice in your exam room, so cartoons should help, too! It’s also exciting to be supporting a practice that is nearly 100% women run, minority owned, gives back to the local community – and for us personally, was very LGBTQ-welcoming. They even go to Pride Festivals to advertise! Basically, I’ve NEVER even said I’ve cared one way or another about a dental office – but I LOVE ALLEGRA DENTAL CENTER. **I’m NOT compensated by them OR related to any employees of the practice; I’m just a loyal customer (who may actually start coming in every year myself – though I’m sure I’ll be driving my husband there more often than that).

I have been going to Dr. Dickson’s office for a few years now and cannot say enough positive things about everyone there, both personally and professionally! I used to actively avoid going to the dentist until a friend recommended her, and now I actually enjoy going. They have taken great care of me from cleanings and fillings to Invisalign, I’d recommend them to anyone (especially if you are anxious about going to the dentist like me).

Niema Gordon (Source: Google)


I love Dr. Dickson and her staff! I have been a patient for a few years now. I travel from MD just to see her because the care is worth it. Especially now during my pregnancy. I have a condition that leaves me extremely sick. They made sure to take their time and give me what I needed to be as comfortable as I could. The amount of time and patience does not go unnoticed.

Pash A. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience at Allegra Dental. Dr. Dickson and her staff are amazing. Everybody is very welcoming and professional. I had full mouth debrightment and I felt great after procedure! The hygienist did a fantastic job, she was telling me about every step she was about to do, very gental and super nice lady. I’m looking forward to come back and highly recommend Allegra Dental!

Alyssa C. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Dickson since 2014 and I’m always impressed with the team she has. I also appreciate that she does the cleaning herself and has a hygienist do the polish afterwards. Other dentists I’ve been to come in at the end and poke around for a minute and send you on your way. I’ve also had surface fillings done at Allegra and they clearly explained the procedure and my insurance coverage before beginning. The fillings matched perfectly.

Kaye T. from Falls Church, VA (Source: Yelp)


I left work early due to a swelling caused by my wisdom too that had been erupting and another wisdom tooth right above it that was rubbing against it. I was fortunate enough to have this dental center as an option in our office building. I walked in with an ice pack on the side of my face and the ladies at the front desk were friendly and empathetic to my situation. I was stressed out with my insurance not yet being active but they didn’t treat me with anything other than great customer service. Although I was in pain and having a bad day, these ladies, Angie, Chaina, and Dr. Dickinson made the difference. I can’t exactly say I’m excited to go back to the dentist just because I know that the next time will involve the wisdom tooth extractions, however with this team there to support you along the way, I feel like I am in great hands here.

I submitted an appointment request and was contacted immediately the next morning for an appointment that same morning. The location is great and the staff members were so friendly and warm. I had not visited a dentist for routine cleanings in a year due to the pandemic, but when I walked in, I felt at ease. Personal protective equipment was worn properly at all times. My exam was thorough and the dental hygienist was great. Dr. Dickson was kind, very personable, and took the time to explain my treatment plan.I look forward to Allegra Dental Center becoming my home for long-term dental care.

Chanier McDonald (Source: Google)


From the moment I walked in the door, I was greeted and helped by some of the friendliest, and most knowledgeable staff members I’ve ever met. After going through some really traumatic incidents at previous dental offices, my interactions with Dr. Dickson and her team put me totally at ease. I can tell I’m going to be a long time patient here and I’m so glad I was referred to Allegra Dental!

Rahul K. from Falls Church, VA (Source: Yelp)


I dont think i ever had such a good experience with any of my other dentist appointments ever before i switched to Dr Dickson that I actually looked forward to my next appointment. I got my deep cleaning and also a root canal done which from what i have heard is a painful process, well not when you have a dentist like her. Dr Dickson, her assistance Anjie and well the whole staff is super friendly, made me felt like i was hanging out with friends. I would highly recommend this place to anyone especially to people who have a dentist phobia to give it a try. thanks again Dr Dickson and staff for making it a great experience for me.

Isabel R. from Montgomery Village, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have to agree with the previous review. “Hands down” this is the best dentist and staff you will ever find. As someone who fears the dentist, I have never felt so comfortable and relaxed during a dental appointment. Dr. Dickson, Angie, Jessica and Katie are amazing at there jobs. I came in thinking I was their worst case patient and leaving out feeling like even better about my situation. Dr. Dickson cleaned my teeth to the point were I didn’t want to stop smiling. And I know by the time my treatment plan is over I won’t stop smiling. All I have to say is GO to her. The drive, distance, or if you have to pay out of pocket…… All of it will be worth it.

T T. from Reston, VA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist office I have ever been to. The office itself is very modern, well-kept, and spotless. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful… They even went over my dental plan step by step at the close of my appointment. Dr. Dickson was professional yet casual, and very charismatic. I didn’t feel uncomfortable and I never got the “you need to floss more” lecture that ALL dentists seem to give to every patient. Seriously, this place is awesome. It’s about 35 minutes from my house but the reviews I found online were great so I took a chance- It was 100% worth the extra drive. I’d give it 6 stars if I could!

Jasmine W. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


As a new patient I was a little nervous, in general, since I hadn’t been to a dentist in a long while, but Dr. Dickson and her staff were incredible! The process of getting an appointment was easy, I was even sent a reminder via text. I was seen right away and every step of the way, I felt comfortable and secure that I was in the right hands. They also made a very conscious effort to explain each step of each process thoroughly, which I truly appreciated. They have the latest in technology, they are professional and courteous and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of an amazing dental experience. Thank you Dr. Dickson!

As usual, the service of the staff at Allegra Dental Center was EXCELLENT!. Dr. Dickson, a highly skilled dentist, has put together a team of people that take care in taking care of your dental needs in a way that makes you want to come to the dentist. I am very pleased with the service and she and er staff. I smile brighter because of Allegra Dental!

Allegra makes going to the dentist fun. Yes, I said it. FUN. Mimi is such a joy to work with — very cool, knowledgeable, and thorough. She takes time to educate her patients in an enjoyable way. I learned things about my teeth that I never knew, and came out with a better understanding of how to take care of them. Dr. Dickson is always amazing as well. Don’t hesitate if you’re unsure, just choose Allegra!

Keana S. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dickson is amazing! I decided to look for a new dentist because I’ve had many horrible past experiences with dental visits. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. I instantly felt at home as I entered the front doors. I love the modern touch to the office and how organized everything is. I am very confident that my friends and family will feel the same way as they begin to see her too. I’m beyond satisfied!

J C. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I recently tried Allegra Dental because my dentist is retiring and I’m happy that I heard about the practice. The staff is professional and eager to please, the space and equipment is all new and Dr. Dickson is an experienced dentist that’s still young enough to be on the cutting-edge of dental technology and techniques. She was delicate, thorough and accomodating of my concerns, and I look forward to being a patient for many years to come.

Ana B. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dickson and her staff are nothing short of amazing! Everyone has a calm demeanor and is very approachable. Each visit, I’m greeted with a smile and my anxiety about being at the dentist’s office quickly fades away. To make things better, I have never been to a more efficient or understanding dentist. My appointments start promptly and I am out in a timely manner. Dr. Dickson always talks me through any issues and explains next steps – and as someone who highly dislikes the dentist’s office, I appreciate the level of care that she takes to make sure I’m comfortable and satisfied with my results. Finding Dr. Dickson’s office was a Godsend. Because of her kindness, efficiency and calm demeanor, I will always be a client here and I will happily recommend this office to any and everyone that I know.

Abigail B.Y. (Source: Google)


I have no complaints about Dr. Dickson’s office, her professionalism and that of her staff. Service is top-notch, facility is clean, equipments are all modern and the space warm and welcoming. Even in COVID, I have confidently visited the office twice, knowing that they take all the necessary cautions that need to be taken, and were doing so pre-COVID. There are no hidden fees, and there is complete transparency as far as procedures are concerned and also what to expect before, during and after a procedure. Also, there’s a candy jar at the front desk which my sweet tooth appreciates.

SJ M. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


It is so hard to find a good dentist in this area, especially one that has a nice office with kind staff. From the receptionists, to the hygienists, to Dr. Dickson herself, visiting Allegra is always such a wonderful experience. They greet you by name when you walk in, they ask how your family is doing, etc. A really nice personal touch to their customer service. For an office that sees patients typically twice a year, they have a great memory and make an effort to make a personal connection. My family goes here, and my coworkers all go here, and we are all very happy with the services we receive at Allegra! Keep up the great work, Dr. Dickson. You are really doing something right!
