How grateful I am that I can cite my experience with Dr. Ardekani and  at Dc pearls dental  as among my blessings! From my very first visit at the office, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly competence of the staff and the pleasant environment of the offiice itself. Dr. Ardekani inspires the utmost confidence by his smile and by his wealth of knowledge, skill, and professionalism. Highest recommendation to  everyone at Georgetown Pearls Dentistry

This is a great big virtual hug to the doctor and his staff at DC Pearls and Dental Boutique! Thank you so much for giving me my confidence back. U can now go to the club and smile without thinking twice if that man I am speaking to is really listening to me or staring at my missing teeth. I am totally enjoying the attention I am getting!

Maleika B. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Yesterday was my first time going to DC Pearls Dental Boutique and let me just say this, Dr. Ardekani is awesome! So are the staff, I had the please of meeting the receptionist yesterday (I can’t remember her name) along with the Dental Assistant Jasmine (i think that was her name). Together Dr. Ardekani and Jasmine made my experience! I’ve never been to a dentist office where you actually WANT to get worked on just to be be in the presence of such greatness. Everyone was warm and smiling. The facility itself is very bright and clean. Let’s not forget about the large TVs and Netflix in each room. Can’t wait to return in a few weeks! They have evening and weekend hours too!

Highly recommend DC Pearls Dental Boutique and Dr. Ardekani!  I had cleaning a couple day’s ago and also discussed cosmetic options with Dr. Ardekani. Excellent location for me – only a couple blocks from my office in Georgetown!  My wife has been going to DC Pearls Dental Boutique for few years and loves it!  My experience here continues to be excellent and …I get a tone of complements on my smile!

I like going to be with Dr. Ardekani because he really likes to explain what he is going to do to me and carries this out while in the process of doing it. Furthermore, he really cares about the continued health of your teeth and is not trying to just make a quick money. I would highly recommend DC Pearls and Dental Boutique.

Leslie B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve just relocated back to D.C., and desperately need a great dentist. I randomly chose D.C. Pearls Dental boutique, and I have to say, this is a great place! Dr. Ardekani has completely restored my faith in my smile, his work is fantastic. And the office staff is so very kind & accommodating. The office is really clean & the energy is always positive. I look forward to having Dr. Ardekani continue to take care of all my dental needs. Highly recommended.

R M. from Columbia, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have never been to a dental office that is more professional and friendly… The staff is amazing. The hygienist is great and Dr. Ardekani is just so good at his job man! HE is good with taking his time and giving you the attention you need when he is with you… Did a few crowns and fillings ( after years of not going to the dentist ) and never had problems with any of them… would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good dental home.

Joseph J Clemer (Source: Google)


This is an office that should write the book on efficiency. I rarely wait at all and Dr. Ardekani never rushes my appointments in the least. I am free to ask as many questions as I can think of and they are all answered patiently and fully. When necessary they will even accommodate me before work hours, after them or on the weekend.

Shelly Watson (Source: Google)


Dr. Ardekani is amazing! Best dentist I’ve ever had. He made my teeth look amazing through Invisalign and he cares so much about each and every one of his patients. I have referred all of my friends to him. His office is really nice and his staff are all amazing. Even though I moved out of DC I still drive 2 hours to see him!!!

Johanna H. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ardekani is amazing! I’ve been going to him for 2.5 years regularly, which is a big deal I didn’t go to the dentist EVER prior to seeing him, mostly due to my fear of someone telling me I had cavities. After he took care of the initial fillings that resulted from my years of dentist avoidance, I knew I’d be staying. He’s so calm and nice and the office is gorgeous (and has windows, noise-canceling headphones, blankets, Netflix, you name it) – I feel completely at ease and I actually go to my checkups now. My friends are now seeing him because they know how I am. The staff is great too and making/changing appointments is so easy using their system. Going to the dentist is never fun but I can’t imagine it much better than this!

Ammi K. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Great Practice- recommend it 100%.  little to no wait time, clean office. The staff was very nice, and smart front office staff. They did a great job of explaining the insurance coverage to me and very patient with all my questions. Dr. K is very friendly, down to earth and did a great cosmetic work for me. He first did whitening on my teeth and put 6 veneers for me that I absolutely love.  I am so happy with this dental office .

Went in today to get second opinion about some work that I need to get done, I was impressed by the doctor and his level of detailed explanation , his knowledge and technology at the office that could actually show me what was going on! My pervious dentist told me I needed 4 cavities and left the room but this dentist explained everything in detail and showed me my photos and walked me through my X-rays which I appreciated a lot! I would recommend Dr Ardekani .

Fernando D. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The office of Dr. Ardekani is conveniently located and beautifully decorated. The waiting room provides good complimentary coffee and tea. The receptionists are extremely kind, personable, and efficient. While performing dental procedures, Dr. Ardekani is very thoughtful and makes sure to ask if you’re comfortable often. My favorite thing is that upon leaving the office, patients are given the option of picking a small gift from a basket such as a candle. After dental surgery, the doctor calls the patient at home to follow up

Giselle L. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I never leave reviews but I am so impressed with Dr. Ardekani and his staff that I absolutely have to. Dr. Ardekani is incredibly professional, talented, kind, and attentive, and I will never go to another dentist in DC now that I’ve found him. I had a pretty challenging case with my front tooth, and I am blown away by how well he did with it. He clearly cares about doing the absolutely best he can and making sure you as a patient are comfortable and happy with his work. I’ve had some terrible experiences with dentists, and Dr. Ardekani has single-handedly restored my faith in dentists. His staff is also very kind, attentive, and responsive. I can’t recommend him enough.

S M. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been looking for a new dentist for a while now. I chose this office based on their great reviews on google almost 6 months ago. As a new patient I was unsure about going to the dentist because let’s face it, going to the dentist is not fun. However, Dr. Ardekani, took his time, which was one of the things I really appreciated. He was patient with all my questions. Also, not many dentist around here accept my insurance, but his office does and I of course love that. The front desk lady (Millie) was so nice and helpful when it came to explaining my benefits to me. All around I would give them 5 stars, great office, great staff, and great dentist.

Perri S. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Had terrible tooth pain and Pearls fit me in as a new patient with 20 minutes of notice at 5 pm on a Saturday. Extremely helpful staff, clearly explained all the procedures and payment options. Dr. Ardekani was professional and friendly and made sure to explain what he thought was going on and all the potential options for treatment.

Karen P. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


What a wonderful dental office. I went there for a second opinion about my teeth and I loved it. Dr. Ardekani did a great job of explaining my treatment to me. the office is in a great location, is very clean and modern. Love their quiet and relaxing atmosphere. I  just got my first  invislign tray. I am so excited and can not wait to see the final result. If its anything like his tooth filling, crown and teeth cleaning, then I have no doubt it will be great.

Brianna J Anderson (Source: Google)


I am a firm believer in regular check-ups and cleanings and convinced they are the reason I still have all of my teeth and they are all in good condition. A lot of my friends are putting off dental appointments because of the pandemic but with Dr Ardekani as my dentist, I have no intentions of doing that because of how closely DC Pearls follows the recommendations of the ADA and the CDC.

Joseph Hale (Source: Google)


I am a previous smoker of 30+ years. I wanted to get my teeth whitened but was worried about cost and if it would be effective. I’m thrilled to say I trusted Dr. Ardekani and went for it. The results…….. amazing. The price seriously worth it. Oh, and did I mention you get free whitening for life after treatment?! Like I said…….. amazing.

Freddy B. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I have had a fantastic experience with all my cleanings ana procedures here at this office . everyone is extremely nice and I truly feel they care about my dental needs. Their staff is extremely nice and educated and the office is extremely clean. Doctor has performed a few procedures on me and I have nothing but great things to say  about his performance . I had a Few cavities that I had to take care of so he first explained the procedure to me and why I had to get it done and then he asked if I  had questions or concerns – then they set me up for an appointment based on my availability! I have had no problems post procedure and I can easily say this has been the best  dental experience I have! Everything went very smoothly and according to the plan . Thank you

Bran B. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Love this dentist and his staff. They are Great with communication and education! Everyone goes above and beyond to help you- anything from insurance to tooth cavity! I went in for my annual check up an cleaning and had a pleasant experience! Have not had the chance to go to the dentist since I moved here from Boston a few years ago so I did have 1 cavity but I was expecting worst! I selected this placed based on reviews and because they took my insurance and I must say I am happy with my choice. About covid: they were taking temperature and had me complete a survey to makesure I was not high risk or didn’t have any symptoms or had not traveled. They were very conscious about keeping people 6 feet apart and had 2 extra chairs in the hallway for those who didn’t want to wait inside! Overall Very impressive!

M. L. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ardekani and team get “two thumbs up.” From a good first impression in scheduling, up to after my procedures — including today. A few weeks ago, I got a dental guard, which was fairly priced and feels great compared to prior ones that were hard and somewhat bulky. Today the doctor fitted an inlay onto a back tooth. The need was diagnosed on my initial exam. He had seen, and I easily saw in huge x-ray photographs, the problem. My tooth now looks and feels great! “Crisis averted!”

Aysia Robles (Source: Google)


This is THE MOST EXCELLENT dental practice and there is no argument about that! I’ve suffered with my various dental issues for many years now and have always had bad experiences with dentists. Dr. Ardekani is the best and very kind towards me. I finally found me a dentist I can be with and will continue to come here.

Mehan Austin (Source: Google)


Dr. Ardekani can be credited with doing the impossible in my opinion. My history with dentistry in general has not been good. To say I suffered from dental anxiety would be putting it mildly. The thorough and comforting way he has in explaining exactly what is going to happen and me knowing what to expect has somehow turned dentistry around for me. I no longer even require sedation.

Michael E. from Northeast Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The moment that I walked through the front door I felt welcomed and had the feeling that I had made the right decision.  I was greeted with a friendly smile and the wait time was very short.  Dr. Ardekani was friendly though straight forward, which I appreciate.  The staff are very attentive, knowledgeable and attractive ( which was an added bonus).  DC Pearls will be my choice for the future!

Tee A. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The team in the office is fantastic. The entire team is friendly and I am always pleased with Dr. Ardekani. I am happy with my teeth and have had nothing but pleasant experiences. I wish to expressly state that Tanya and Jasmine are the most outstanding professionals I have encountered in a dental office. The quality of care and commitment to customer service from these ladies is phenomenal and personable! I enjoy the energy that they bring! Overall the practice is great and highly recommended.

Randy C. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


Great Experience!!! I just had my first appointment at DC Pearls Dental Boutique after two years of avoiding dental work. The staff, from the business managers to the hygienists, were kind and inviting and made me feel comfortable even though I came in with a lot of apprehension. My cleaning was very smooth and I experienced no pain throughout. Dr. Ardekani spent extra time explaining my x-rays and exam findings and helped me make a plan for my dental needs. Although I don’t live close to the office, the care I received today makes a trip into DC worth it. Thank you so much to the team at DC Pearls!

Poya S. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ardekani and his staff were amazing. I came in as a new patient and was very pleased with the professionalism and how thorough my exam was. State of the art equipment with Dr. Ardekani explaining to me in detail about my teeth. He answered all my questions in detail and addressed any concerns I had.  Afshin, the dental hygienist was amazing as well with his explanations and effort and care he puts in towards his patients.  I highly recommend this practice for anyone looking for a good dental practice.

Joseph Milani (Source: Google)


Im very happy I choose this office. They have a beautiful office and very friendly staff I originally went to Dr. Ardekani for a second opinion for my cavities. He was very thorough unlike the other dental office that just told me I have cavities and needed to fix them. He took x-rays and spent a lot of time with me explaining my dental treatment to me. They ended up being in network with my insurance and I needed fewer fillings and had to pay a lot less. Couldn’t be happier

Like many people and you know who you are, I put off dental work because I have a fear of dental practices. I finally made an appointment at DC Pearls Dental Boutique. Dr. Ardekani is an amazing dentist and a very patient man who insisted that I had nothing to apologize for not coming sooner.

Kate O. from Northeast Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ardekani did a great job on my dental work. I just started going there, and he made sure that I was comfortable and in no pain during my filling. His staff is very welcoming, and do a great job of explaining benefits/coverage information. I’ll definitely be going back and recommend DC Pearls Dental Boutique to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Ritanch H. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The entire team is so helpful! They fit me in even though they were completely booked that day and I was a new patient. After they saw I was waiting a long time to be seen (even though I had no problem waiting since they fit me into their schedule) I was given a 5 dollar Starbucks card by the office! Not only that, Dr. Ardekani kept his practice open later for me on a Saturday since he saw I was in discomfort. The facilities are superb and I felt like a royal inside a dental practice as you can watch TV while being treated 🙂 Highly recommend him to anyone in the DMV area looking for a great dentist!

Louis A. from Crofton, MD (Source: Yelp)


When I was about 12 years old a fell off of a scooter face-first and chipped one of my two front teeth. While I had it repaired, after 7 years (I’m 19 now) the fake tooth had become extremely yellow and made it embarrassing to smile for pictures or laugh with friends. Dr. Ardekani led me through a process of whitening, fitting a temporary veneer, some more whitening, and finally a permanent veneer. I could not be more pleased with the result: my veneer fits perfectly and matches the color of my other teeth perfectly. You wouldn’t even know I have a veneer. To top off the process they offered an extremely good price for the entire procedure. Dr. Ardekani was extremely professional, helpful, and kind throughout the entire process. He always checked to make sure I was okay and was ecstatic with my final result. I also get my regular cleanings done at DC Pearls and have always been pleased with the service, prices, and staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Thank you, Dr. Ardekani!

I would like to commend DC Pearls for the seriousness they place on the precautions taken relative to COVID-19. My spouse is immunocompromised making it crucial that care be taken. Dr. Ardekani calls us before each of my spouse’s appointments in order to evaluate if we should keep the appointment or reschedule.

Alyssa M. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been really pleased with the team at DC Pearls Dental Boutique. Dr. Ardekani is extremely professional, and he has proven himself to be a thoughtful partner of my dental health care team. I came in with an urgent and complicated case of an abscessed tooth stemming from a misdiagnosis from a previous dentist, and he did an excellent job of walking me through my options for management, and even went as far to speak to my primary care doctor and my oral surgeon to ensure that we were all on the same page for treatment. I have also found that he is one of the few doctors I have had that listens to me when I tell him something feels off. I am typically asymptomatic for things until they get really serious, and anytime I have told him that I think something warrants further treatment, he takes the time to do a full analysis of the situation, walk me through options and associated risks, and then we make the final call on how to proceed together. I ask A LOT of questions throughout the process to make sure I have a good sense of what’s going on, and he has entertained all of them very patiently and thoroughly. I also appreciate that in the two cases that I had that were particularly complicated, he referred me to specialists immediately so that I got the proper level of care. Both the oral surgeon and endodontist he sent me to were excellent, and all three of them kept in touch to ensure everything was moving forward well. Finally, the front office staff has been delightful. I unfortunately know them all better than I would have liked because I’ve had to go in so much, but they have been great about discussing potential issues with insurance on certain treatment plans and developing payment plans with me. Overall a great team and I would highly recommend!
