Recently, I visited Fox Family Dentistry for the first time since I was overdue for a cleaning. My previous dentist is no longer an in-network provider with my insurance company. We are a military family, so it is always a challenge to find trusted dentists and doctors. A friend recommended Fox Family since I was searching for a new dentist. At first, I called and left a message. When I did not hear back, I called a week later. I am so thankful that I called again! I have never had a dentist personally call me before my initial appointment. However, Dr. Fox (Sr.) called me the day before to introduce himself and to discuss any questions or concerns that I might have. That in itself demonstrates that Fox Family Dentistry values their patients. The staff is warm, friendly, and patient-oriented. The office was clean and comfortable. I was taken to the back on time and my appointment ran smoothly. I had an exceptionally pleasant experience, and I am thankful to have found new dentists. I highly recommend Fox Family Dentistry to anyone, for this business is a gem in this hectic Northern Virginia area.

While researching local dentists, Fox Family Dentistry was recommended by several neighbors, and thus I felt comfortable giving them a try. I’m happy to say that my first cleaning went very well. Both Erin, my hygienist, and Dr. Fox (senior) were incredibly pleasant and answered all of my questions. I never felt rushed and left knowing I would recommend Fox Dentistry to my entire family.

I’ve been going to Dr. Fox now for (15?) years and can’t say enough good things about him and his staff. When my first dentist in this area retired I had some terrible experiences with dentists and developed a terrible fear of having dental work done. So I went to a “sedation” dentist who charged me like $300 to take two little pills in his office to calm my nerves. This guy also found all kinds of things wrong with my teeth, requiring thousands of $$ to fix. After I figured out what was going on I went to Dr. Fox upon the recommendation of a friend. He prescribed two little pills before my procedure. That I took 30 minutes before my appointment (no driving). The pills cost me like 75 cents!! Since then, however, I no longer need any kind of tranquilizer because I am no longer afraid. Dr. Fox is so gentle and so conscientious of ensuring I’m comfortable I have no need to worry. He’s conservative in his treatment and will not recommend dental work that isn’t necessary. He is honest and compassionate and I trust his professional opinion completely. His staff is equally kind and gentle.

Today I saw Dr Lawrence Fox, as always he, Stephanie, Candy were so helpful. I have a problem holding my mouth open. They couldn’t have been nicer, or more accommodating. I want them to know that I appreciate everything they did for me today. I couldn’t ask for a better professional, friendly atmosphere. I should mention that Dr Fox’s injections don’t hurt. Stephanie takes the best impressions. The entire office has always gone above and beyond for me. I used to be a little afraid of the dentist however with the care and attention I’ve received. I am more than happy. After 50 years of dentists I’ve found my forever Dentist.

Dr. Fox came highly recommended to me as an excellent dentist for “anxious people who get stressed about the dentist” — and he (and his office) have absolutely earned that reputation. Over my adult life I’ve probably seen a least a dozen dentists, and Dr. Fox was the first to have ever personally called the day before my appointment to check in, introduce himself, and find out if I had any questions prior to the appointment. It made me feel so much better to have that contact prior to coming in. My hygienist answered all of my questions, and was extra careful during my cleaning around the sensitive areas on my teeth. The staff was all super pleasant and courteous – it was easy to book an appointment and do my new patient paperwork. Covid protocols in place included having me wait in the car until the last minute, chairs blocked off in waiting room to enforce distancing, extra plexiglass, a temp screening and screening paperwork, and what looked like an air filtration machine in the appointment area — all of which made me feel very safe. Would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Fox Family Dentistry is 100% the best dentist I have ever visited. Their non-judgmental and friendly bedside manner actually make me look forward to going to the dentist. With their level of hospitality, I always feel more like their guest than their patient. If there is a problem with your teeth I guarantee they will take care of it calmly and with care. I needed a root canal and  it was a surprisingly comfortable and pleasant experience.

Ottie G. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Drs. Lawrence and Erik Fox by a friend, since desiring to find a new dental practice. For my first visit, I had my teeth cleaned, x-rayed, and examined. Erin, the hygienist, was so friendly, kind, gentle, and informative about everything she was doing. Dr. Lawrence Fox then consulted with me about what procedures I may need in the future, but not at this time. I was so impressed with the conservative outlook by Dr. Fox, and I feel very satisfied with having him and his staff take care of my dental needs. Thank you!

I recently switched my family’s dentist to find one closer to my house and the kids’ school and I have been very pleased with Fox Family Dentistry. I had to have some fillings redone and Dr. Fox did a wonderful job explaining the procedure and took great care to make sure that the entire procedure was painless.

I am TERRIFIED of the dentist. After reading reviews of different ones in the area, I decided to be brave and make an appointment. I received a call from Dr. Lawrence Fox the day before my appointment. He asked if I had any questions or concerns before coming in. He let me explain how I’ve had bad experiences with the dentist and made me feel relaxed even before coming in. Everyone in the office is amazing. His hygienist Stephanie was comforting and knowledgeable. I am not able to hold my mouth open that long, and she suggested something to help with that, and it worked! Dr. Fox explained everything that would happen and let me ask any questions. I am afraid of the needle for novocaine, and Dr. Fox used a vibration when inserting the needle and I FELT NOTHING! They are very reassuring and take wonderful care of their patients, even the new ones. I have never had such a great experience at the dentist. I would highly recommend to everyone. Thank you for being a great practice.

Fantastic dentists (both generations) and office/staff from top to bottom. My entire family has been going to this dentist for years and we have no plans on ever leaving them. I normally do not give Yelp reviews, but I felt I needed to after I saw the completely undeserved 1-star review come through recently – I had to even the scales a bit.

Lea P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fox is simply AMAZING! I experienced a painless cavity fill for the first time in my life! His cutting edge, laser technology was pain free and took less than 20 minutes! He also corrected a chipped tooth in minutes and you cannot tell the tooth was ever chipped! His front desk staff are so pleasant and professional and the Dental Assistants are fabulous! They are so skilled, courteous and extremely professional. The entire team is top notch and the facility is so nice, clean and efficient. They use the latest technology and make going to the dentist a wonderful experience! They were phenomenal with my 6 year old who raved about enjoying the dentist! You may have a good dentist, but if you don’t have Dr. Fox and his team, you don’t have an exceptional dentist! Call and make an appointment with them today!

In my experience, Dr. Lawrence Fox is absolutely the best dentist, ever! When I lived in Maryland in the late 1970s, I had an emergency and was seen quickly; problem resolved with a minimum of discomfort and great kindness. I changed dentists and started driving to Virginia for all my dental needs and I have stuck with Dr. Fox’s practice ever since. With access to all the latest equipment, Dr. Fox is quick and efficient, but also gentle and caring. I’ve referred several patients over the years and they have all been pleased and have continued seeing Dr. Fox. I get cleanings three times a year, and the hygienists are excellent, providing the comfort and care I’ve come to expect from Fox Family Dentistry.

Sharon G. from Annandale, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lawrence Fox is the best dentist I have been to in 30 yrs. I had a root canal done and felt no pain at all. Prior to Fox Dentistry other dentists had problems getting me numb, leading to many traumatic dental experiences. I am so happy to finally find a great dentist. His whole staff is very professional, caring, and understanding of my initial fear. His dental hygienist Stephanie was amazing!

Patricia P. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


Yesterday I informed Dr. Fox that my teeth are now trouble-free for the first time in about 30 years. Of course he already knew that. I came to his offices three years ago with serious dental problems that had been building my whole adult life. He set out a plan of action for me that led to the removal of a bad bridge, a couple of necessary extractions, two implants (he gave me the choice of bridge or implant in one spot, I chose the implant), and assorted crowns. If your problems are like mine were, you may be casting about looking for someone you can trust to get you back to good health. I’m happy to share my experience to save you a lot of pain, trouble, and unnecessary expense of time and resources. Start your journey with the Foxes and their crew of professionals, you’ll be glad you did.

Christy O. from Annandale, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fox is the best.  I am terrified of the dentist.  He makes you so comfortable.  Explains everything that is happening which really helped me.  The entire staff is friendly and accommodating.  He really is experienced and has an outstanding bedside manner.  I would recommend him to my family and friends.  He turned a very unpleasant experience into a positive one. I will definitely return again and again

Lyndsey T. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


I am the most anxious patient on the planet, but calmed down in 5 minutes because everyone was so nice. My dental hygienist was amazing. Dentist was really honest. My previous dentist told me several years ago that my crown needed to be replaced immediately or the sky would fall. Dr Fox told me it had several more years to go. I was in and out quickly. Amazing. Would totally Recommend.

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


After reading so many great reviews on Yelp and Facebook, I chose to make an appointment with Dr. Fox. At first, I was alarmed because I submitted an appointment request through their website but never heard from them (Staff, that system should be reviewed to make sure it s working!). After 4 days, I decided to call the office to make an appointment and I am really glad that I did! I was so impressed by the fact that Dr. Fox called me personally the day before I was to be seen to review the details of my appointment and to ask me ahead of time if I had any concerns that he should know about prior to my appointment. During the office visit, the team was courteous and patient. I was very impressed by my treatment as both a patient and a client and I would highly recommend this office to anyone!

I’ve been with Fox Family Dentistry since retiring from the Navy in 2012. Dr. Lawrence Fox took all that was right with military dentistry with him when he transitioned, along with what could be improved and built that into the best experience I have ever had with a dentist. I cannot recommend this practice strongly enough! Their genuine care for the services they provide and personal touch in treating patients as family is second to none. I would recommend my hygienist by name except for two reasons: (1) She is awesome and I don’t want to compete for time slots, and (2) ALL the hygienist are equally outstanding in their own right.

I cannot say enough kind words about Dr. Fox and his team. Dr. Fox is by far the most compassionate dentist I’ve ever visited. As a new patient, he called me the night prior to my appointment to introduce himself and see if I had any questions. His office’s COVID procedures made me feel very safe and his office staff was equally kind and personable. It was a wonderful experience overall.

Donna F. from Fairfax Station, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Erik Fox for several years and was so grateful to find him! He listens carefully to your issues and is extremely competent and kind. He always makes sure that his work is perfect, and that is greatly appreciated! For the first time, today, I had Dr. Lawrence Fox (Dr. Erik’s father). He was just as wonderful and as professional as his son! This is an exceptional family business comprised of individuals who are excellent at what they do and who apparently love it. No one likes going to the dentist, but I actually enjoy my visits to this practice. Thank goodness, I’ll never have to find another dentist again. They are the best!

Need a new dentist – do not hesitate to visit Fox Family Dentistry; as a matter of fact I highly recommend their practice. Myself, my wife and daughter are new patients and all of us had great experiences. So my take today on my first visit to Fox Family Dentistry. As a new patient Dr. Fox called me the night before and asked if I had any questions or concerns and said he looked forward to meeting me. I had an early appointment and was greeted kindly and professionally by the receptionist. Promptly at the appointment time, Stephanie, the hygienist, greeted me and explained (where I can understand) what she was going to do and what she saw. Another true professional. As soon as my xrays and cleaning was completed Dr. Fox came in for the examination. He made me feel comfortable and explained what he saw. Bottom line where I can relate is he said, “if it were my teeth, what would I do, and for now I would not do anything further until we see you in six months we’ll make another assessment.” That made my day, an honest Doctor. They also take many insurance providers, thats a plus for me. I will be back in six months! PS: everything was clean!!!!

We and our large extended family have relied on Fox Family dentistry for decades! Dr. Fox is my most trusted doctor. He has helped our family with routine as well as complicated crisis dental work. This practice is an absolute GEM. Not only are they expertly skilled, the technology used PREVENTS pain during the numbing process!!! I also have to say that they have a lovely bedside manner. So gentle and kind.

Karen Weiss (Source: Google)


Kind, cheerful, and friendly front desk staff! Did not have to wait. They called me back before I even finished the paperwork. The hygienist and dentist listened to my concerns and promptly answered questions and came up with a plan. Clearly they are an experienced team. You won’t see me going anywhere else, anytime soon!

I live in Florida, but am visiting in Virginia. One of my crowns popped off when I was flossing. Tom called his dentist, Dr. Lawrence T. Fox, from Fox Family Dentistry, to see if I could be seen. He said yes. Come in today at 3 pm. Dr. Fox and Stacey met me in the office and took care of my crown. I wanted to hug both of them. I was in and out in 30 minutes! Fabulous service and care!

Robert H. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


I just purchased new dental insurance as military retiree dental care is no longer funded. This forced a change in providers. I am very fortunate that Fox Family Dentistry is in the new insurance network. First impression was that the office was too busy for new patients – I then found out the receptionist was out sick. Dr. Fox called me personally to day before my scheduled appointment to see if I had any questions or issues before seeing me. This has never happened to me before! On arrival, I met a very professional and cheerful office staff and Stephanie, the dental hygiene tech, talked me through what was going to happen. She also has a gentle hand when it comes to cleaning, which in the past has been reason enough to avoid dentists. Cleaning invariably hurt my gums and pain lasted for days. Guess what? My teeth are just as clean as ever before and I had no issues after my cleaning. I’m going back in six months. The entire team is great.

After retiring from active duty service, I needed to find a local dentist.  Fox Family Dentistry was recommended by a colleague and was very conveniently located.  Dr. Fox and the entire staff are not only courteous, they demonstrate the utmost in professionalism and utilize the latest treatments for all their procedures.  They are also very accommodating when making appointments and offer their own in-house dental plan that is very competitive with other insurance policies.

This was the best experience I’ve had at a dentist appointment for my son. He is usually very anxious about his appointments and was today as well. But the two hygienists who worked with us were wonderful! Not only did they calm him down quickly and make him feel at ease, by the time my hygienist was done with me he willingly got in the chair to get his cleaning with no anxiety at all. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!

Ashley Rounds (Source: Google)


AMAZING, ANXIETY GONE! I had severe anxiety and Dr Fox has restored my faith in dentists! They are more than willing to use gas/Valium/or both. I don’t respond well to those so I was on nothing and nervous. He is so calm, gentle, and works smoothly. I literally felt ZERO pain or discomfort while getting my root canal. Even the nerve block at the beginning was absolutely painless. He has this great contraption that causes vibrations on the gums so the nerve is unable to respond to the needle injection! There’s usually some pain with the first poke of the needle, not this time! I’m actually pulling my children from their dentist to take them to Dr. Fox! I cannot recommend him enough!

M D. from Fairfax Station, VA (Source: Yelp)


Truly enjoyed my first visit to Fox Family Dentistry. A military friend recommended them and I was very pleased. Dr. Fox himself called before the appointment to introduce himself and gave me time to ask him questions. Very nice man. Front office is also very friendly. A thorough cleaning was done. I look forward to returning for my next visit. Highly recommend them!

A W. from Annandale, VA (Source: Yelp)


As an AD Mil Fam we are shuffled through Dentist frequently. Our last office dropped our insurance so once again I was on the search. This practice came highly recommended and I can see why. Very polite, professional and courteous. If you have any anxiety at all they will make you feel at ease and welcomed. A personal phone call from the dentist the evening before to welcome you and to see if you have any questions is a great way to start. Each of the receptionist are super friendly as was my hygienist.

JoAnn D. from Springfield, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Fox and his team are #1. I’ve visited too many dentists to count and Dr. Fox is far and clearly the best! He really cares what his patients are going through and what they expect/want with their teeth/smile. Dr. Fox is really meticulous (even a perfectionist) in all of his work and his staff are as well! The entire office team are a friendly bunch, who provide an easy going, relaxing atmosphere and thoroughly discuss procedures beforehand- so you know what to expect. Dr. Fox and his assistant technician Stephanie (who is especially AWESOME in cosmetic dentistry), just gave me front veneers and WOW!! They not only gave me my smile back (without any pain whatsoever), but I feel a little like a celebrity –my teeth have never looked better!!!!! Thanks so much Fox Family Dentistry!!

Jane D. from Fairfax Station, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fox is just the most outstanding dentist I have ever been to. I was a new patient having only been to the office once before. My first visit was great, with Dr. Fox spending a lot of time with me, as well as getting a thorough cleaning. So I left the office a happy camper and did not expect to see them again for six months. Then diaster struck! I chipped my front tooth, oh no what could I do? I was a new patient, would Dr. Fox help me? I called the office and my fears were put to rest as the receptionist arranged for me to be seen that very day. What joy! So kind Dr. Fox took care of my problem with no fuss and my tooth was as good as new. Even though he was squeezing me in to his busy day, he spent lots of time reassuring me that all would be well, and it was. The end, oh but not really. The real end of the story is that he didn’t even charge me. This is a story with two happy endings, my teeth were smooth and delightful and my purse was still full. This is a doctor who is not only professional and acomplished, but he has a heart and really cares about his patients. If you need a dentist go to this office you will not be disapointed. And that’s the truth.

Our family has been patients of Dr. Larry Fox since we moved to the Washington area in 1986. We have always found him to be accommodating to our needs, compassionate, warm and friendly. In recent years we welcomed Dr. Larry’s son, Eric Fox, to the practice. Dr. Eric has lived up to the high standards of his father. Although we moved out to Loudoun County, we don’t hesitate to travel to them for dental care. We have recommended Fox Family Dentistry to lots of folks and all have raved about the service. In short, they are the best.

I have had many dentists work on my mouth over the years. I have always been apprehensive and very uncomfortable during these visits. Some have made mistakes while others showed no real concern over my comfort. Dr. Fox and his staff were amazing. Painless and very comfortable. How comfortable? I had a root canal done and there was literally no pain at any point during the process; not even the numbing part! I was so comfortable that I even started to fall asleep while they were drilling. I would bet that it would be very difficult to find a better dentist anywhere. A small practice with short wait times. Appointments are almost always right on time. This is truly the best dentist I have ever been too.
