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

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


We moved to DC 5 years ago, and have been through a number of pretty mediocre (or downright bad) dental providers ever since. We finally landed on a location/provider we could walk to, and just stayed there because it was close and I was tired of looking. We were due for our dental cleanings in March, just as everything shut down for Covid. Our dental provider kept rescheduling and rescheduling, until finally everything was just cancelled outright. When I started having some issues in December, I was able to get in to see them, but I wasn’t impressed with the care I got, so I started shopping around for a new dentist again. My neighbor recommended Elite Dental, and I tried them out because they were pretty close by (5 minute drive). I immediately felt better cared for than at any point in the last 5 years. I had a lot of work to be done and they have been gently guiding me through it without judgement and with extraordinary patience. I have been so impressed that I cancelled my kids’ cleaning appointments at the old walkable provider and scheduled them with Elite. My 6yo came out of her appointment with a big smile, a newly discovered molar, and a sense of motivation to take very good care of her teeth. My 9yo had a slightly less positive experience, primarily because he had a lot of tartar buildup and some apprehension about the work he needed – 2 sealants had to be replaced and one small cavity needed filling. Luckily, they were able to schedule us for the next day, so he didn’t have a lot of time to stew about it. Unfortunately, a day was plenty of time to get himself worked up. My son has a debilitating fear of pain, and when he gets worked up it’s near impossible to get him to see reason. But Dr. Walker was amazingly patient, even when we overstayed our appointment time trying to persuade my son to open his mouth so they could take care of his teeth. In the end, we somehow convinced him, and Dr. Walker came back in between his other patients to get the job done. Afterward, my son kept talking about how much it didn’t hurt, and he didn’t even realize Dr. Walker had put a filling in the 3rd tooth! I just can’t say enough about how amazing Dr. Walker was. Dr. Smith (whom I’ve primarily been seeing) is also great, as are the hygienists and technicians and Diego and Kia at the front desk. I was also impressed with Dr. McCall when I saw her. I’m so happy to have finally landed here, though I look forward to seeing much less of them in future, once we get through my current issues.

I had a wonderful first visit to Elite Dental Takoma Park! The staff were professional and friendly. My hygienist, Anne, was extremely thorough and informative when it came to ways to improve my oral health. The office is also beautiful and high tech. It was a great experience overall, and I will definitely be back!

Stacia B. from Laurel, MD (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Smith and his staff. The hygienist are super knowledgeable and friendly. It was breath of fresh air to have a practice that was competent and young and friendly vs. my old dentist who I left after 2 root canals of which caught me off guard cause I never knew why I was having trouble but I knew something was wrong. My first visit to Elite Dental, Dr. Smith assessed me and in 2 minutes said “Oh you need a mouth guard” which if my old dentist of 10 years had figured that out I may not have needed to root canals! Thank you Dr. Smith and your excellent staff at Elite Dental!

Elite Dental Takoma was recommended by a friend after he had many problems a his bridge that only this dentist was able to resolve. Dr. Smith and his staff are very efficient, friendly, and professional. They don’t make you wait around and run all of the costs by you ahead of time. They also took the time to fully assess my gum health before recommending unnecessary procedures.

I had an excellent experience at Elite Dental. After more than a year dealing with dental issues and having bad experiences at other dental practices, I’m so happy I found this dentist! Dr. Smith was very communicative and amiable, and made my treatment plan clear and logical. He offered real solutions to dental issues I’ve been having that other dentists didn’t think could be repaired or have simply dismissed. Both he and Yolanda, who I am assuming is a dental assistant, were really friendly and respectful of my needs. They had plenty of COVID-19 safety measures in place and I felt very comfortable in their office. Their front desk was also very friendly, efficient, and helpful. I couldn’t recommend them more.

Chris N. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I first came to Elite Dental when I had a tooth that needed to be desperately removed. They made the effort to fit me into the schedule 30 minutes after I called them and had me off an on my way nearly an hour later. I’ve been a happy customer ever since. Their scheduling is flexible, the staff is helpful, courteous and professional. I don’t think I’ve ever had to wait longer than five minutes after I checked in to start my session. I’ve had a lifelong phobia about going to the dentist and while the Elite Dental team hasn’t cured me of this, they have definitely helped ease the pain once I’m there.

Rayneka G. from Capitol Heights, MD (Source: Yelp)


I was referred here by 2 coworkers and I must say I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time so I was fearful to have someone take a look. However, Dr. Smith and the rest of the staff made me feel comfortable and the environment was clean and neat including the bathrooms. Music is usually playing and it’s not loud but up enough to hear to feel relaxed. I have been 3 times for cleaning, filling, and getting wisdom tooth pulled. No issues. The staff gives you ahead up on pricing in case your insurance doesn’t cover before procedures are done so you’re not taken advantage of or end up paying out of pocket a grip of money. Appointment reminders via email, text, and call which is appreciated. Pre and post-op instructions provided via print out and email. I recommend everyone to try them for your dental needs.

I absolutely love Elite Dental. I cannot think of a time I have gone in for an appointment and waited long to be seen, my crown impressions are always right the first time and the staff is so nice/awesome. Dr. Smith is a PRO and I’ve come to expect great dental care from him. Another plus is their selection of tunes playing in the background – can never go wrong with good R&B or Soul 🙂

I decided to include very important details that I left out with my original post. regarding previous visits that assisted in me making another dental appointment. The doctors and dental hygienist treated me with great care! Each visit was fun painless and safe. unfortunate that Teago refused to allow me to make another appointment. Its extremally difficult to locate a doctor that accepts my insurance and also cares for their patients . Step 2e/Y34jC4I1m70?t=35

Erin O. from Takoma Park, MD (Source: Yelp)


Can’t ask for better service–great front desk staff, almost no wait time, and Dr. Smith is a fantastic dentist–I’m a baby and he made sure I had absolutely no pain or discomfort. They also have modern equipment like digital x-rays (that exposure you to way less radiation than old school ones). I also really like that he works seamlessly with his hygienists. I will be a lifelong customer! Also, THEY ARE OPEN ON THE WEEKEND!

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


So glad I found this place.  Had emergency tooth pain, they saw me right away on a Saturday! Incredibly friendly and professional. It was obvious from the get go that this is a patient centered establishment.   Brand new facility.  Dr. Smith, Sam and the front desk team were all awesome.  Thanks again!

Best dentistry I’ve ever been to! The atmosphere is more like a chic cafe than a dentists office, and the entire staff is very friendly! The hygienist was very gentle, and explained everything and asked if everything was alright with me before she did it . She even asked me if I was comfortable having the chair laid back! Before she began the cleaning, she told me to raise my left hand if I needed to her to stop, and continued to check in with me throughout the entire experience to make sure I was comfortable. I’ve never felt so comfortable with a dentist in my life! Everyone I interacted with was extremely kind and non-judgmental, even when I told them about my terrible flossing habits! I cannot recommend this place enough, especially for those with a history of trauma/ptsd or special needs of any kind.

I recently tried Elite in Takoma for the first time. I have a dentist that I have been to for years and love, but I moved and wanted to find someone closer to home. My expectations were low, since my prior dentist was so great, but the team at Elite really blew me away. Everyone was extremely friendly and experienced and I loved the fresh, modern office. Having Saturday hours was a huge perk too. Even my daughter asked to go back the next day! Looks like I have found my new dental home.

Went for my first visit this afternoon. Best dentist I have ever been to. Everyone was kind, personable, and helpful. There was no judgement, only encouragement. The customer service was impeccable, the office was clean and inviting, everything was above 5 stars. You can also tell that the employees are appreciated and enjoy their job. Well done, Elite Dental Takoma Park!!

Elite Dental is a well-staffed and well-run office. The dentists are friendly. You can tell they love what they do. The hygienist was kind and considerate. I am skittish in the chair, and she was thoughtful and courteous. You can tell they look for a specific type of employee, with a calm demeanor. Strong marks to the team for billing and insurance issues too. Everything was upfront with a clear statement in writing about the treatment plan with an eye for maximizing payment of insurance and minimizing out of pocket costs.

Juliette Lunsford (Source: Google)


The dentist and staff are courteous and polite. You are greeted with a cheerful hello. There is a spacious waiting area that electronic equipments can be used. You are escorted to the room where the dentist comes in and review what will be done. During the procedure, you are asked if you are all right. After the procedure, they tell you what you need to do and walk you to the check out area. I highly recommend Elite Dental Takoma Park

Lenfant F. from Northwest Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Great dental clinic. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Starting from making my first appointment and during treatment Elite Dental Center was very professional, effective and work was very good. Wonderful staff, great service and The Doctor who treated me did a good job. Price is reasonable for very good dental work, great service and you treated well by the entire staff that is hard to find in DC. It’s always one or the other but not at Elite Dental. Will recommend to my friends and family.

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


I actually enjoy going to the dentist! Everything about the experience is professional and pleasant. The office itself is bright and clean with friendly and professional front desk staff. Each person I speak to, from checking in to checking out, is warm, patient, and approachable. The hygienists are top notch. They talk you through your cleanings and take the time to explain how to maintain or improve your dental health without judgment or being pushy with extra services. I feel like they care about my health and smile. The first appointment I had, they walked me through the charges with my insurance so I understood the costs. The dentists make you feel like you’re old friends. This is just an excellent dental office. I can’t say enough good things about them. 10/10, would recommend!

Tony J. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I called Siri and asked for the newest dentist. Elite Dental was at the top of her recommendations. I called the place of business and spoke with Ellie. I gave her a quick run down about my situation concerning my Mother. She invited me today and offered a discount before I asked for one lol and included information about Senior Citizens discounts. I called an Uber and my Mother and I arrived in 11 minutes. The place was beautiful and the energy was amazing and what was more compelling, on this particular day, Seniors was in the house, and they represented people from all walks of life just like the employees. I live in Atlanta and I’m from DC, this gave me Peace, Love and Happinesses. I recommend this place if business to everybody. The customer was amazing!!

I’m a new patient at Elite Dental Takoma Park and I’m so glad that I found them after the horrible experience that I had at a previous dentist. The staff is both knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with and Dr. Smith came right into the room and made me feel comfortable. I look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Elite Dental.

I appreciate the fact that Elite Dental takes the necessary precautions and actions for the patient’s safety during these pandemic times. The hygienists are thorough and do an excellent job of informing you what you need to do after your visit. The dentist have patience while working with you and do excellent work.

Courtney W. from Norcross, GA (Source: Yelp)


This is a state of the art dental practice, with a beautiful decor. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They take the guess work out of the insurance aspect of dental care. The office verifies your benefits and reviews them with you before you receive any services. Dr. O was knowledgeable and engaging. The dental techs were attentive. I’ve had very positive experiences since I’ve become a patient. I highly recommend.

This has to be the BEST dental office I’ve been too in a long time!!! The staff and dentists are EXTREMELY nice & professional which is a huge plus for me. I truly believe that I’ve found my forever home!! All the procedures that I’ve have been 100% painless & I love it!!! Bottom line is…Elite Dental Takoma Park is AMAZING & I would recommend anyone to come here!!

A W. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin?! I made a quick visit from out of town and found that the facility is brand spankin’ new and very nice. The staff is very professional and friendly…all smiles as soon as you walk in! Dr. Smith is very personable as well, which makes a dental visit a lot less intimidating!! He really cares about his patients…and it definitely shows! KEEP UP THE GREAT SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY, ELITE DENTAL !!

The staff at Elite know how having a healthy and attractive smile can be a life-changing experience. They took care of my teenage son’s chipped front tooth & his confidence was boosted. During these pandemic days, they are extremely conscientious and careful, checking temperatures, maintaining social-distancing in the lobby, etc. Crazy as it sounds, we look forward to going to the dentist in 6 months.

Mark Crozet (Source: Google)


My wife and I just moved to DC in June. We had a fabulous dentist in Scottsdale so I was not looking forward to trying to find a new one. Elite looked good online and was close to where we live so I thought I would try it – and that was definitely the right choice. From when we walked in – really bright open space, super friendly reception and staff – to the treatment itself; again just really friendly people who really know their craft. Modern equipment everywhere and a smart, capable crew. Highly recommend.

Malaika Y. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Awesome dental experience!! Took my daughter for appointment this morning & I was greeted with a beautiful smile from the receptionist ! Everyone was so friendly. The dentist & hygienist was extremely professional & meticulous. They explained to me and my daughter any issues going on with her teeth and made suggestion. For the first time, my daughter was extremely comfortable at the dentist office – yay!!  This is a Takoma park Jewel !!

All of my experiences at Elit Dental have been nothing short of exceptional. The administrative staff is very caring, supportive and knowledgeable. The physicians and technicians are equally caring, supportive and knowledgeable. Everybody treats you as if you were a personal friend or family.

Outstanding service which is personable, laden with dental expertise and precision. Dr. Vincent Smith is My dental hero next to my childhood dentist; he is by far most excellent in explaining procedures, cost, and final outcome and works with the patient to ensure that the final outcome meets and surpasses ALL expectations!!! He is SUPERB!! as is the overall practice!!!

Ernestine Lewis (Source: Google)


My name is Ernestine Lewis aka Tina, I have been with Dr. Smith since 2012. I was a hard patient to deal with; I was letting him know that I hate pain and don’t tolerate pain well.. He informed me that he does not like for any of his patience to be in any kind of pain. So I gave him a try, and we have been very good with each other ever since. He is the best dentist I every had. Tina Lewis. PS I won’t trade him for the world.

The best dentist office music ever! Okay, I know that’s probably not what you’re looking for, but someone had to say it. The professionalism, care, and thoroughness of the care that these people provide is the best I’ve ever had with a dentist. And that applies to the support staff as well as the dentists.
