Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

I went for my first visit today and I loved it!! Everyone was so nice and Dr. Palaez was SUPER sweet. He knows what he is talking about and tries to come up with simple solutions that wont cost an arm and a leg. He also will pull up in-depth X-Rays and go through them with you so you know what he is telling you is “wrong” is accurate or a real occurrence. If you have had a bad Dentist experience before, I would suggest coming here. I used to hate going to the Dentist and I felt so comfortable there that I don’t mind going back!

I love Dr. Pelaez and his team of friendly professionals! From the front desk to the financial desk to the hygienist to Dr. Pelaez everyone is very knowledgeable and VERY courteous! Dr. Pelaez is incredibly honest and caring! Thank you to everyone at the office for making ‘going to the dentist’ and pleasurable experience!!

I was in such pain when I tried to find a dentist that was in my network,but most of all one that would accept me with work done by another dentist out of state. To get an appointment considering it was Friday I was not in high hopes of being seen. Not only did I get an appointment that day,Dr.Palaez was concerned and explained what was going on with my tooth. I have confidence in this Doctor for him to fix the problem. Everyone at his office were great,I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dentistry of Virginia to anyone.

My husband set me up with these guys after he went and had a great experience. The office is brand new and super-modern, and everyone I encountered was great. I needed a little flexibility in my appointment scheduling, and Leslie at the front desk really helped me out. Uma, my hygienist, was very professional, friendly, and gentle on my gums! She also explained everything she was doing, which I really appreciated (if you don’t want running commentary, there’s an overhead TV you can watch). They took the usual x-rays of my teeth, but Uma also measured my gums so as to have a baseline…that way they can see if my gums start receding or getting any bacteria pockets (scientific term). I’ve never had that done before, but I think it’s a really good idea. Dr. Pelaez was also professional and friendly, and answered all my questions thoroughly. Overall, it’s the best experience I’ve had with a dentist’s office in years. I have finally found a dentist I want to stick with!

My dad was in unbearable tooth pain while on vacation. We called and got an appointment the same day. Dr. Jorge was very professional. Although he was unsuccessful with extracting the tooth, he tried to do everything he possibly could to help alleviate his pain. The entire office staff was professional and kind. We highly recommend Dr. Jorge and his office! They even called to check on him after his visit to an oral surgeon. Thank you!!!

Dentistry of Virginia Beach is the absolute best! The staff are always so warm and welcoming. I love how they always go out of their way to accommodate my needs. As for Dr. Palaez, he is simply brilliant! I appreciate his engaging step by step explanations during every procedure he performs. His excitement for his work is remarkable. Suffice to say that he is the epitome of how doctors should be.

Jessie W. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying I was terrified to go to the dentist after too many years of putting it off and just a general fear of poking and prodding in my mouth. Check in was a breeze, barely any wait time and Dr. Pelaez and the dental hygienist made me feel as comfortable as possible. A few weeks later I got a bill in the mail and had questions about why my insurance didn’t cover some things and the woman I talked to was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and took the time to explain all of the questions I had in depth. The whole experience was above and beyond what I expected from a medical office. Highly recommend, especially if you are nervous about going to the dentist!

Dr. Pelaez is amazing. He is so passionate about dentistry and really takes the time to explain everything. We have referred so many people to him and I continue to recommend him. His office is clean, modern, with personal TVs in each room. I have never felt that I was being overcharged and the hygienists are great as well. We live out in Chesapeake but do not mind the drive because he makes it worth it.

Dr. Palaez is the best dentist I have had so far. Not only is he thorough, but he goes out of his way to be personable, explain things very easily, and he remembers every detail of my situation. After a second visit six months subsequent to the first, he remembered my wife’s name, where I worked, and where I was from. He not only is a great dentist; he has a top of the line facility that is clean, professional, and great about sending me reminders regarding my check ups. Leslie and the administrative staff raise the bar when it comes to providing a smooth dental experience. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a better dentist.

Evan M. from Sydney, Australia (Source: Yelp)


I found this dentist office based off online reviews. My husband went to see them first and has had many bad dentist experiences in the past but gave raving reviews of his experience and the most painless filling he has ever had. I went a couple of weeks later and also was very pleased. The facility was very clean with top of the line equipment and all of the staff I encountered were excellent.

Mike S. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve moved my whole family over to Dr. Palaez.  Modern, welcoming, attentive and calming from the front desk through the dentist chair.  All of the staff are great.  Dr. Palaez is thorough and explains everything clearly.  I would recommend Dentistry of Virginia Beach to anyone who is looking for a new dentist.

I was in so much pain the other evening to the point I couldn’t sleep. So I got online and was determined to find a dentist to do an emergency extraction. Let’s just I found the right place. Friendly staff and the dentist explained everything clearly. He was efficient and I felt nothing. Didn’t even know he pulled the tooth.

My daughter referred me to Dr. Pelaez who she’d seen at another practice in Virginia Beach before starting his own practice. I’ve had a lot of dental work and have seen some of the best dentists in New York City, Austin, TX, and in Virginia Beach. Dr. Pelaez will be added to my list as one of the best dentists. He’s knowledgeable, skillful, has integrity, and friendly. In addition, he has served this country! What more can anyone want in a dentist!

Well if you can say you love going to the dentist which not many people do… I’d say I do love Dr. Jorge Pelaez and his staff! The office is very pleasant, comfortable and clean. Amanda and Marisol are soooo sweet! Very attentive and concerned for your comfort and well being. Dr. Jorge Pelaez is wonderful!! Very gentle and very comforting. Also very knowledgeable and professional. I feel very secure and that I am in good hands when I am at his office for treatment. Thank you to Dr. Pelaez, Marisol and Amanda!! Linda

I had recently moved to the area and was looking for a dentist in the area. I found this office online while searching and was impressed by the website and the ability to make appointments through their website. When I arrived at the office it was very professional and peaceful and all of the staff was friendly and helpful. The facility itself was very clean and up to date. I was very comfortable during my visit and even enjoyed some episodes of “Fixer Upper” while waiting in the chair and getting my teeth cleaned. My insurance was explained to me so I knew what was covered and how much. The doctor himself was very warm and welcoming and knowledgeable. I overall really enjoyed the office and already made my 6 month appointment!

Being in a new place I did not have a dentist,however I had a bad tooth ache,also I had just had a crown fall out. On his sight there was a appointment the next day, I signed up for it online. The staff there could not have been nicer. And Dr.Pelaez was super friendly and explained what needed to be done. I have appointment to have the work done this week. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Palazzo

Dr. Pelaez is a miracle worker. We found his office a few years ago when we had a dental emergency on a Sunday – he was the only doctor to call my husband back. He is truly dedicated to his patients and he is incredibly intelligent. Staff in the office are pleasant, and I never wait – as soon as I check in they call me back. You have your own personal TV while you’re getting worked on, so how could you complain?

Nicholas S. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


The service was absolutely amazing. I was extremely happy by the end of my appointment. The staff did a wonderful job of explaining everything that they were doing. It surprised me that the dentist actually did most of the cleaning and I was really happy that he took the time and effort to do so. I’m used to seeing the dentist rush through after someone else and talking for maybe only a couple of minutes. The dentist really got to know me and I felt very much at ease. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Jenn M. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This was my first visit to the office and needless to say I was hesitant only because I’m not a fan of dentist visits. From the moment I made the appt, until the second I left the office I was greeted with warm and friendly staff members. My entire experience was very pleasant and I was made very comfortable throughout the whole process.  I will absolutely be returning and referring all my friends/family! 🙂

My wife and I are new patients and couldn’t be more pleased with our experience. The staff is very professional and pleasant. We have been patients of several dentists over the years and would reccomend Dr. Pelaez over all the others. 5 stars

Going to Dentistry of Virginia Beach has easily been the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Pelaez is incredibly skilled and really patient and friendly as well. His staff is always incredibly nice and they do a fantastic job. Even my kids have no issues going to the dentist when we go to this office. Can’t recommend enough!

It has been quite some time since I last saw a dentist. A toothache that I (rightfully) suspected was caused by an infection finally pushed me to do it. Dr. Pelaez was able to schedule me at the last minute for an exam, identified the issue, and discussed options with me that wouldn’t involve extracting the tooth. I opted for extraction. The day of the extraction, Dr. Pelaez once again made it clear that there were other options. For personal reasons I chose to proceed with the extraction. He made sure I was comfortable with the process. He explained what he was about to do each step of the way and warned me of pressure, sounds, etc. While the personal experience was miserable (I am a giant baby), Dr. Pelaez did an outstanding job! I had a concern post-extraction and he went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure I would be taken care of if the concern persisted. I highly recommend Dentistry of Virginia Beach to anyone. From the front desk to the chair, the staff was friendly, professional, and made me feel like my concerns were acknowledged. Thank you, Dr. Pelaez! I will be back again under better circumstances!

I recently started going to Dr Pelaez I had lost a tooth a couple years ago and a few others were on their way out as well. I absolutely hated going to the dentist for years I put it off. I have to say from the moment I walked in I felt at ease. The Dr is not one for a lot of small talk he is direct and to the point he explained my options and told me what he would suggest and told me to think about it. A week later I was in for 3 fillings and have to say it was the least pain I have ever experienced in a dentists chair and when I did show any hint of discomfort he stopped and numbed the area even more. I completed my plan with a partial and couldn’t be happier he truly gave me back my smile. I have to mention his staff as they are just as awesome as he is any questions I had were answered especially when it came to billing. I highly recommend this Dentist.

Mary B. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Yesterday was my first appointment,  and it was amazing!  Dr. Pelaez was great,  he explained everything thoroughly and my treatment plan was much better than the one I was given last year by a different dentist in the area.  I was so happy to again experience “Navy dentistry ” which is much more conservative and not just about getting the most money out of the patient! Thank you Dr. Pelaez, you have a new patient for life! !

Went there for my first cleaning since I have been in the area, and they were great! Explained to me exactly what needed to be done, and why. Showed me the x-rays and pictures, explained what I was looking at, and what was important so I could make an informed decision. Went to them last week to have an erupted tooth extracted / have a bone graft done, and it went flawlessly. Was done in under 2 hours, and let me just say I did not know how much pain the old tooth was causing. 4 days out from the procedure, and it does not even hurt anymore, Dr. Palaez did an awesome job, and I am not afraid to go there ( a first for me and dentists). Absolutely recommend them, if you are new to the area, or looking for a new dentist, they are absolutely amazing! edit: I feel like I should add that they never tried to “sell” me anything. Every dentist I have ever been to has tried to sell me on something like whitening, or this or that. This was straight up “this is what you need, and why”, no trickery, and they gave me all of the options.

This amazing staff never lets me down. I went in yesterday to get a tooth pulled and Dr. Pelaez made me super comfortable and made sure I was ready. I have had traumatic experiences in the past when it came to getting teeth pulled but I felt comfortable yesterday and didn’t feel pain whatsoever. It was simple and easy. They walked me through the post op instructions and everything and made sure I was alright when leaving. I am so happy I have Dr. Pelaez as my dentist!

This was my first visit and from the point of first contact the entire visit was a pleasure. The front office is helpful and professional. Leeandra, my hygienist, is caring and very capable. Dr. Pelaez is thorough, helpful, talented and listens thoughtfully. My visit was a great experience!

When I left Indiana, I was also leaving behind the very best Dentist I ever had, by far. I was concerned about finding someone who could even approach his quality of care. Well, I did find such a person – Jorge Pelaez is an incredible person who sincerely cares about his patients and had a great gift where his work is concerned – he is very skilled and I can trust him and don’t feel anxious when I am there. Could not ask for more

Here’s how it my visit went: I went online and picked an appointment- miraculously available the same day. The paperwork was filled out easily via ipad, no waiting! The hygienist came out and confirmed a few key details. Imaging was completed in a matter of seconds, and then I’m back in the chair watching TV, and actually enjoying myself. The procedure was completed effortlessly- with zero pain or discomfort, and payment was simple and quick. Then I get an email giving me a recap of my procedure, next steps, my next appointment is booked and now I’m doing this survey! Dr. Pelaez and his staff were impeccable, and efficient! I can’t believe how good this experience was, I look forward to my next visit. This is by far one of the best service experiences I’ve ever had, especially with regards to healthcare.

A little over a year ago I had a dental emergency and needed a dentist on a Sunday. After scouring the internet and making countless phone calls, Dr. Pelaez was the ONLY dentist to call me back. We have been going to him ever since and he is honestly one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He remembers everyone in our family and is always asking how we’re doing. I hate the dentist but his demeanor makes you trust him. The hygienists are always so friendly. We are patients for life!

I chipped my tooth at the end of the workday, just before a trip to VA Beach. Since I was going to be in the area, I chose to call Dr. Pelaez based on his reviews online. They were able to fit me in for an appointment the next day, and Dr. Pelaez walked me through step by step how he was fixing my tooth. If I lived in this area, he would be my dentist!


Jorge Pelaez is a native of the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. He completed pre-dental studies at Penn State University where he was also a member of the varsity golf team. Subsequently, he attended dental school at the University of Pittsburgh. After completing a one year AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) residency, he spent an additional 7 years in military service as a Navy dentist. During his military time he was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina and at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California. The Navy then brought him back east to Virginia Beach where he spent his last 3 years at the Dam Neck Dental Clinic. Dr. Pelaez completed two deployments while in the Navy. The first was an 8-month deployment as the dentist for 2,200 Marines of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the Norfolk based USS Iwo Jima during the ship’s inaugural deployment. He also spent 8 months in Camp Virginia, Kuwait where he was the dentist working as part of a 5 member team serving the US military troops as well as a multinational group of patients from South Korea, Mongolia, Australia, the UK to name a few. After separating from the military in the spring of 2009, he immediately became an associate dentist in private practice. It was always a life long goal to practice dentistry under his own terms. Being able to build his ideal long-term practice after 13 years as a dentist on land owned by family has been very rewarding. It involved long delays in approval by the city zoning board and a lot of patience, however it has come together beautifully since construction started in October 2013. Dr. Pelaez thrives on continuing education. He attained his fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in 2010. On a regular basis, he seeks out the latest techniques and equipment to make dentistry more efficient, comfortable and affordable for his patients. He maintains active membership in the American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, Tidewater Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Implant Dentistry and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. “My favorite hobby is actually dentistry believe it or not. I think I’m very lucky to love my job as much as I do. I really never feel that I’m working when treating patients. Practicing dentistry is one of the most enjoyable activities for me.” Since moving to Virginia Beach in 2006, he met his wife Reena Talreja-Pelaez, a local OB/GYN. They have two young children, Mateo and Lola. In his free time, Dr. Pelaez likes to do most anything outdoors including running, mountain biking, going to the beach, basketball and golf. As a cook, he enjoys experimenting with new recipes. “I enjoy the temperate climate of Virginia Beach and after being in the Navy for 8 years I became accustomed to living near the coast. I feel land locked any time I’m away from the coast for a few days! And of course Reena is a native and her parents and brother live here. Even my parents, originally from Spain, moved to Virginia Beach in retirement 5 years ago so it truly is home for me and my family.”
