This place is run by a dentist who cares about getting all the details right. When I first came in two years ago, I went from feeling scared about my health to incredibly cared for… it was pure luck I found this place online. I look forward to their integrative care for my young daughter—who we hope to save from many scary teeth mishaps in the future by early employment of the ALF. (We travel five hours for top care so we are very serious about our dentists!)

I had been looking to find a great dentist for my family. I finally came across Dental Excellence Integrative Center. I became interested as I red in to their treatment options and doctor profile. I procrastinated in making an appointment. My husband came down with severe tooth pain during COVID closure. They still saw him for an emergency appointment and took care of his issues. We were impressed with all the percussion and extra steps that was taken for my husband to be treated safely. I also learned that they see kids and do lots of preventive care and nutritional education. I am bringing my kids here soon. I wish I had a dentist like this when I grew up to help me prevent my cavities and crowded teeth

Great experience!! Definitely would recommend. I am a new patient here with a 7:30a appointment and was very impressed on the level of energy and friendliness at this time in the morning (and overall). Everyone was really friendly. The dentist was extremely knowledgeable. Overall 5 stars

Kay K. from Joint Base Andrews, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have continuously had wonderful experiences at Dental Excellence Integrative Center. The staff is very professional and nice. Hasiba, the hygienist, is very thorough but gentle and everyone I have been in contact with explains everything in a way that I understand. The office is very clean and they even have a changing station in one of the bathrooms for changing my baby. I am always impressed with the dentist here. I highly recommend everyone to come here for their dental needs for the whole family!

Dr. Sheri is remarkably knowledgeable and professional. The office is welcoming, clean and modern. Dental Excellence Integrative Center offers unique, progressive and safe procedures that you can’t get other places. They are ahead of their time and a leader in dentistry. I highly recommend Dr. Sheri and Dental Excellence Integrative Center. You will not find a more professional yet caring doctor.

This is one of the nicest looking dentist offices I have ever been to. Not only does it look nice but the staff is phenomenal! So sweet, caring and take the time to explain things to you. I have always been nervous going to the dentist and now I dont feel like I need to take a ‘bathroom break’ or reschedule a million times. They managed to make me feel comfortable and would recommend them to anyone! It also helps that they have the heated neck wrap and dip your hands in wax =) now I’m not sure if its a spa or dentist?

Can’t say enough good things about this place. I have been going to them for about a year now. I found Dr. Sheri on a preventive and functional dentist website. I had so many issues and my mouth was in a very poor shape. I used to not place any priority on my teeth and had many damaged teeth and root canals as a result of it. I had a bad metal taste in my mouth and my teeth were crumbling one after another. I thought I was smart by getting patch work and metal fillings because it was a lot cheaper, I even bought some stuff from CVS and placed in my tooth. I am writing this to help others take their preventive work serious, I didn’t and as the result I suffered not only with my teeth but also with my general health. I used to be an assistant myself and now I am a nurse so I have a good medical and dental background. I went to Dental Excellence Integrative to get one tooth fixed and the level of attention and care I received was outstanding. I went back for a general check up because they were so much better than other offices I had been to, I could tell everyone there was doing their job from the heart, everyone who helped me was so thoughtful. They never judged me. Dr. Sheri was so patient and spent so much time with me after hearing my health story and explained everything in details, she helped me understand how my mouth health is effecting me, from bad teeth to bad airway space. I have been going to so many doctors for an answer to my depression and anxiety, keep in mind I am a nurse myself and have many connections in the medical field. I consider myself lucky to come across this office to just fix a tooth and I got my answer. Dr. Sheri not only saved me from more root canals, she took pictures during procedure and showed me how bad it was inside my tooth. I also noticed they follow more steps while putting a crown on, don’t forget I used to be an assistant myself. I can totally tell they are top notch quality place. I question everything and they always have the answer and never get annoyed. The best part is that I am going through Sleep Apnea treatment and they are the only office in the area offering this service. I have referred so many of my coworkers here and they all are extremely happy and love this office. I am also taking my grandson in because he grinds his teeth and snores, I don’t want him to grow up suffering like me. I just want to say THANK YOU DENTAL EXCELLENCE INTEGRATIVE, YOU DO IT FROM THE HEART AND I APPRECIATE ALL YOUR HARD WORK. Also, to all the people who are whinning about their bills, you want a good service, it is not cheap or free so grow up and pay for it. Like I did.

Great office! everyone is extremely friendly and makes you feel comfortable, especially Lydie, the assistant. I had some concerns with my bite and was hoping to improve the crookedness of my teeth. I had a consultation with Dr. Sherri and she really helped me find the best treatment plan that worked for me. I didn’t feel rushed or pushed into doing anything and am really happy with the results I’m getting with the ALF.

Alex K. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


Appointment went smoothly (in and out with little to no wait time), friendly and knowledgeable staff members, all my questions were answered in detail. Dr. Sheri has great bedside manner. ‍ It’s a reputable establishment and I will be coming back Rating them 5/5 clean smiles Everything that I was quoted for was fairly priced. My insurance covered the clean and anything else that would not have been covered is in a reasonable price range. Nothing was pushed on me and I made it a point to ask about the criticality of certain options.

James R. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheri and the rest of the staff were all so welcoming and accommodating.  There was no wait time.  The waiting room is clean, has a TV, and it looked like it had some toys for children to play with.  They were thorough and explained everything to me that they would be doing.  Overall, it was a very informative and pleasant visit.  Highly recommend.

They told me 2 years ago that I had gum issues, I ignored and went somewhere else that just did a cleaning. I recently had issues where my gums were hurting alot. I came back, they did their measuring again and showed me that my condition was worse. The 2nd dentist I went to never measured my gums and did a cleaning. If I took care of the issue I would not have as much damage. They helped take my pain away and laser process worked great. They took a scan that had lots of details and they showed me the bone levels and so many other cool information about my jaw and sinuses. I am writing this to tell people the cheapest option is not always the best option. I also have heart issues and learning about how this is all related. The level of care I am receiving is superior and I can see the value in their approach and technology.

Linda C. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not the biggest fan of going to the dentist…who is?! But Tiffany assured me that Dr. Sheri is really gentle. She really is! The place is nice but the most impressive thing is what Dr. Sheri can do! she really is an amazing dentist. I had an entire quad redone on the side of my face and I look and feel so much better. Thanks Dental Excellence!

Geoff L. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


What a classy office! I can’t say enough about how I was treated. Dr. Sheri is impressive. I have not seen such comprehensive dentistry in one place before. The office is beautiful and the reception and her dental team are really cool and really care about my comfort. I highly recommend. Seriously the best dentist I have ever known.

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


The office is clean and cozy which is nice for a dental office. I’m use to the old outdated chairs along side a dirty facility. Its nice to have a doctor that knows what they are talking about. She is not trying to sell you treatments but rather suggest treatments that will be beneficial to you in the long run. I highly recommend Dr.Sheri and Dental Excellence to anyone! I will be sure to bring my kids and husband back!!

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


I moved to the area last year and looked around for a good dentist to go to. I was blown away by the care and attention I receive from Dr. Sheri & her staff. The office speaks for itself. They have the best and latest technology in the office. I was offered comfort items through out my visits. Dr. Sheri Spent lots of time with me and I got the most detailed exam I ever had. I don’t remember any of my doctors spending as much time with me and listening to my concerns. Dr. Sheri went over many things that no one ever paid attention to, not even my medical doctors. She helped me realize what the source of my dental problems are. I have found my dental home and I am very happy with them. If I move away again I will travel to see them for my dental needs. I used to have bleeding gums and went through several deep cleanings in the past with other dentists and my gums never got better. Dr.Sheri told me about a new technique and I was skeptical at first but I was tired of my gum issue and gave it a try. My results are phenomenal and my gum measurements are alot better now, also they don’t bleed anymore. I couldn’t be happier… 😀 I also got few fillings done and didn’t feel any discomfort like my old ones used to hurt after for few days. If you want an office that is professional and cares about you in whole I strongly recommend them. They are highly trained and have the best bedside manner. They even checked on me after my appointments and followed up with me to make sure I don’t forget about my next appointments which I totally forgot about.

Tiffany A. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


Have you been inside of the office? It is the definition of “State of the art facility” The staff is AMAZING and they really do make you feel like a part of their family from the minute you step through the door. Dr. Salartash is such a great dentist, she really knows what she is talking about when it comes to dentistry and really takes an interest in you as a person as well, not that you are just there to get a dental cleaning. If I could give this office more than 5 stars I would!

Donna Kerekes (Source: Google)


The staff at Dental Excellence are wonderful. More specifically, Shabnam is an amazing Dental hygienist. She is very personable and is amazing at her job. She made my experience less stressful and less painful as I have a lot of sensitivity. She really cares about her patients comfort. I am so grateful as not every dental experience is as positive as what I experienced with them. I will say it is very pricey here. Even with insurance I had to pay over $1200 for a deep cleaning. Just to schedule those appointments I had to put a deposit down. Not something I’ve ever dealt with before. That is the only thing I wish would change. Other than that, I highly recommend.

Melissa Bond (Source: Google)


Best dental appointment. Highly recommend them. Best Technology. I didn’t even have to get numb for my fillings and they were all done with laser. No shots and no drilling. I am so happy with the care I got and they were highly recommended by a family friend, now I know why my friend is so excited about this dental office. I am a big fan.

Dr. Sheri and her team are the very best. Over the past year I was treated for cavities, cracked teeth— ultimately leading to two bridges. Their initial assessment was thorough, which gave me a ton of insight and options throughout the process. The work was impeccable. The staff is tied together extremely well and on top of everything. And, the office is always clean and welcoming. You won’t find a better dentist!! – Eric

Sara S. from NO POTOMAC, MD (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to the area and was looking for a new dentist and boy am I glad I found Dr. Sheri. I had a few cavities and had them fixed with a laser device. I recently went back and was impressed when they informed me they have a new device that can scan my teeth so I don’t have to have impressions done. l honestly love how they keep improving and advancing their equipment. I feel like I’m receiving top-notch dental care.

Sali M. from Falls Church, VA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Sheri and her staff! They are professional, yet personable and really care about my health and happiness. Working with Dr. Sheri and her staff is always a pleasant experience! They are great about working with my busy schedule and they always follow up with sincerity and thoughtfulness after my family’s procedures . And I have to say, the results of my treatment have been fantastic so far – I finally feel like I can smile without being embarrassed again! If you need a dentist, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Dr. Sheri She’s the BEST!

I had an excellence first consultation. I had high anxiety and they dipped my hands in the Paraffin wax and then put a warm neck pillow on my neck. It helped ease me a little. All the techs who worked on me were very nice and talked me through everything. Not once did they seem annoyed. Dr. Salartash explained everything to me and even though it wasn’t great news she eased my worry. Another lady walked me through all of my other questions and was beyond helpful . By the end of the visit my husband decided to switch dentist

I cannot recommend them enough. My daughter (17) had her first cavity and struggles with anxiety. She was extremely stressed and Jasmine was so incredible sweet and patient with her. She explained every step, multiple times, and never got frustrated with her. Jasmine was able to ease my daughters anxiety by being patient, answering any questions, showing her what would happen and even offered a weighted blanket and earphones to help sooth her anxiety. She was the perfect person to help my daughter. Her kindness and patience was truly a blessing. My daughter was embarrassed after everything was done because it did not hurt at all. The laser is great, I highly recommend it.

I am so happy I found Dental Excellence! Everyone is very professional & I have gotten very good dental care here. After hearing horror stories from others who have had extensive problems with crowns & other work, it was very important to me to find a dentist’s office who got things right- the first time. I have been very happy with my crown & fillings. Their laser procedure prevented further complications. I love that they are holistic & the office is peaceful & clean. Everyone always makes sure I am comfortable and completely satisfied with my visit! I highly recommend this team!

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


Sooo let’s be honest guys, I am not a fan of the dentist. I’m so thankful that my teeth have always been in good shape. I came to Dr. Sheri for a regular check up and cleaning. Upon coming in the staff welcomed me very nicely and professionally. I was walked to the back and even given a tour!! I thought that the tour was hilarious, but honestly a great idea. Once on the chair on of the assistants came in and took my X-rays and some images. The doctor came in after and started her exam. She was SOOOO detailed. I passed the test of no cavities! However she did explained a lot of things to me that have helped me figured out something’s regarding my health. I really think that this was the best part. I have mercury fillings that I never thought of really, I have hoshimoto disease and apparently mercury fillings affect this condition greatly. I have started doing research and I have actually found out so many things out thanks to Dr. Sheri. I am very thankful that I came to this office. I think that even if they didn’t accept my insurance I will be paying out of pocket to come here. Honestly if you are looking for more than just dental care and an office that genuinely cares you should come to this practice. FIVE STARS TO YOU DR. SHERI AND YOUR STAFF.

Grace R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I definitely have some serious dental anxiety and have always hated the experience going which is why I avoided it for so long. I stumbled upon this place because I was having TMJ issues and I needed to get it looked at in addition to a check up. The whole staff when scheduling the appointment to when I got there was so incredibly friendly and welcoming. They felt like they wanted to get to know me and really understand the issues I was having with my teeth. I have a lot of things that need to get done and they explained how I could space things out, pay for it and a whole plan going forward. I feel like this is the best and only dental place that I will be going too and I highly recommend to anyone who is nervous.

Nydia M. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheri is great. She removed my amalgam fillings and is very knowledgeable about Hashimotos (My reason for having them removed). There were a few rough spot left on the replacement filling which she was happy to smooth out and polish at my next appt. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They are very kids friendly. I have 3 kids and sometimes have to bring them with me. The staff is wonderful and they bave a room the kids can play in, or watch a kid friendly movie that is truly a relief for a busy mom wuth no sitter. Overall, a great experience.

Laura K. from Mechanicsville, MD (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. Sheri yesterday and she is the absolute best!!!! I had jaw surgery to correct an open bite 30 years ago and my teeth have somehow shifted.  All the other dentists I’ve seen recommended that I be treated with braces again.  I’ve had braces already twice in my life and didn’t like that option.  Dr. Sheri, on the other hand, had a different approach and that is to correct the root problem and she explained to me in detail of what was causing the teeth to shift.  Will be having the new pinhole gum technique done by Dr. Sheri for gum recession in the near future and after that an oral appliance to wear to correct the bite.  Prices are very reasonable here.  I don’t want to leave out the staff…they are wonderful too!!!!

I am very pleased with their work. I though the whole team was very professional and did their best to make me comfortable. From the manager to the doctors and assistants, you can see they go the extra mile to help. I was referred by my chiropractor here and they have done an amazing job with my teeth and gums. Dr. Sherry is helping me with my sleep apnea issues and I sleep better. The laser thing they have is pretty cool. I enjoy going to the office. Everyone is cool.

Recently, due to the pandemic, I needed to find another provider that was closer to my house as my usual dentist is across the city and I didn’t feel comfortable using public transportation with the current situation. So, I decided to give this office a try for my annual cleaning and check up. I was nervous about going in during the pandemic but they did a pretty good job of taking safety precautions. Although it looks liked something out of a movie (plastic barriers for each exam room) I appreciated it. Overall the office is really nice and clean and from the looks of it their technology is pretty new. The exam and cleaning went well and they were thorough. At the end the doctor recommended a couple of treatments – I had a cavity and I guess my gums are receding a bit. I asked what I needed to do vs. what was really optional at the time and for the cost based on my insurance. She broke everything down for me and although she recommended taking care of everything soon she did say the cavity was the only thing that needed to be addressed immediately and that we would keep an eye on my gums condition to see how things progressed. Overall I would recommend this office. The doctor/staff seem great and I liked their office.

I have had several dental experiences throughout my lifetime, and want to say that Dr. Sheri exceeded all my expectations. Dental Excellence has very friendly, knowledgeable staff, clean, and organized facility. The procedures are priced fairly so if there are few members of family needing dental procedures you don’t have to break the bank. I’ve had cleanings, filings, and two crowns here and am very happy with the service I received from Dr. Sheri Salartash.

Bezhan Hamdard (Source: Google)


Like most of us, I have had many dentists that I have seen but Dr. Sherri and her staff is by far the best. Incredibly nice staff – from the moment you walk-in front desk, to assistants and doctors. Everything was thoroughly cleaned and disinfected which is important in these times. Every room had air filters to take extra measures. Would highly recommend this place!!

Megan T (Source: Zocdoc)


Really great first impression. Both Dr. Salartash and the Assistant Mary were really nice and really took the time with the treatment. The office has several complementary options which were nice. Definitely a modern office with up to date technology and great service. I’m having follow up treatments which I hope are just as good of an experience.

Dental Excellence uses a root cause approach to their dentistry — as a holistic nutritionist myself, this is what I sought out and found at this place! Dr. Shari is very knowledgeable and is helping to address my issues resulting from an underdeveloped jaw (TMJ pain, clenching, upper airway resistance syndrome). The staff is also very lovely and responsive. If you’re looking for a dentist who will dive deeper than surface level dentistry, this is your place!

Sarah S. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t like to go to the dentist. At all. I have had some bad experiences and I feel silly each time I go because I get upset and sometimes cry when I have a procedure. Not this time. I broke a sealant on my front tooth and it was very sensitive. I called Dental Excellence and the representative was wonderful, fitting me in the same day and even calling during the afternoon to ask if I wanted to come earlier as they had had a cancellation and she was worried about my pain. When I got there, the representative at the desk was friendly and helpful about my paperwork, insurance, and payment. The room they led me to had a TV and soothing pictures. I was still scared but calm. Then I met the dentist. Dr. Sheri could not have been more gentle. She carefully examined my tooth without hurting me and then numbed my mouth before giving me the big numbing shot. It helped having her talk me through it from start to finish. When she fixed my sealant she told me each thing she was going to do before she did it which reduced my anxiety considerably. At one point I jumped – in surprise not pain – and she and the tech immediately stopped and both asked me if I was OK. The dental chair even had a massager and they told me the next time I go back they will give me a warm towel and hot paraffin so I’m not so nervous. They were done quickly and my tooth looks and feels great. This is next level dentistry. Here’s my advice: * If you’re scared to go to the dentist because of a previous bad experience and want a dentist and staff who will be sensitive and not judge, go to Dental Excellence. * If you want an easy booking experience from start to finish, and friendly, experienced staff who make you feel like a person, not just a patient, go to Dental Excellence. * If you want luxury like a massage chair, hot towel, etc. that you never even knew dentists had but now you feel like you have to have them, go to Dental Excellence. It is truly excellent. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
