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

By far the best experience we’ve had out of all the dental offices we’ve visited. I love how the atmosphere is warm and so kid friendly with lots of toys and movies to keep the kiddos occupied while we wait. Dr. Sharif and staff were excellent from the moment we checked in until we checked out. Wonderful service from a warm and professional staff. Dr. Sharif was not only professional she was genuinely caring and kind not to mention very patient with our child with special needs. I was brought to tears because this was the first time my child was able to have a thorough cleaning and evaluation without any issues. My child left with a happy memory which will ensure that this will be the dentist/practice of choice for our family for many years to come. I highly recommend Greater Washington Dentistry and Dr. Sharif to anyone looking for superior service.

I was there for my daughter. Everybody’s very helpful and kind. They are really very professional. They had patients temperatures taken. Everybody were in masks and they had hand sanitizer throughout, following all COVID 19 protocols. My daughter is very happy with her doctor. Because she told all the steps of treatment to my daughter and she doesn’t have any concerns anymore and she’s so excited to start the Orthodontic treatment

The staff are very professional from the receptionist to the dental assistant and the dentist. They care very much about their patients. The payment plan looks affordable. My son felt so much at home. They even explained very well how to take care of my son’s teeth. I also liked the DVD being played while they clean my son’s teeth. I will definitely recommend them to my friends.

Love Dr. Sharif and love the staff.  Michelle and Rachel are awesome and always willing to help and answer any questions I have.  My oldest child now has a beautifully straight smile to go with his handsome face thanks to Dr. Sharif.  For general pediatric denistry and orthodontia I woudn’t recommend anyone BUT Dr. Sharif and her tea!

My first appointment did not work out, and I ended up rescheduling, for a day where my time was not so limited. My next appointment was 07/13/2020 and I had a mini melt down just before the Novocaine shot ( I have a severe issue with needles). The way my Doctor and Dental assistant too the time to calm me, means so much to me, when I got the two shots required, it hurt less and less. We had to stop mid procedure when I expressed I had felt pain (which required another shot), but the Doctor stopped completely and did not start again until I was sure that I was numbed completely. I have NEVER had a dentist listen to me, and now I am not as afraid to go back for the rest of my treatments. I will be recommending this office to everyone I know in the area 🙂

Everyone at this Dentist office is top rate, from the front desk to the dental techs, and all the way up to the doctors themselves. My children have seen both Dr. Sharif and Dr. Pearson and both have been very patient, especially with my four year old, who, based on his extensive dental experience, had multiple suggestions for how the doctors should do their job when treating him. When my 4 year old needed a filling, Dr. Pearson was extremely patient, and didn’t make me feel like I was a horrible parent when my son suddenly possessed the strength of three men and put up a fight. Aside from the dental care they provide, they also have plenty of entertainment for the children, including toys and games in the lobby and plenty of televisions with netflix access to childrens shows on large screen TVs for each chair. Overall, I couldn’t ask for a better experience. Definitely recommend!

The incident happened, no one is denying that. Once it was clear that I knew what happened, the Doctor personally became involved and sorted everything out. Eventually, we ironed everything out. They explained to me how they changed their office procedures to assure it never happened again and disciplinary actions. The remaining work was completed as I preferred. Overall, nothing was wrong with my kid, but the initial lying made me irate. I’m also satisfied the changes in their procedures will make sure this does not happen again. We have kept going to see Dr. Shariff ever since then and have received top notch care. I will continue to see her until my kids age out of her care or until insurance changes.

This was our first visit here. The entire staff were friendly and very helpful. They answered all our questions and took great care of our children. I observed Dr. Sharif with a young patient that was quite upset and they way she interacted with him was amazing. She was gentle, kind and encouraging. She was even able to put the mother at ease. The office itself was very clean and they have T.V.s for the kids to watch while getting their teeth worked on. They were quick as well. We were taken back after only waiting about 10 min. One of the big draws for us was, in addition to the rating, this office is a one-stop-shop. We were able to get not only routine dental stuff done but also orthodontics done in this office with Dr. Sharif. Their prices on teen Invisalign were very reasonable and Dr. Sharif suggested a plan that offers the convenience of the trays and the results of hardware. We look forward to future visits

I’ve been going to Greater Washington Dentistry for about 17 years when my boys where little and the staff there is like family now. They have the BEST customer service and they always go out of their way to help you with any concern you’d have. I recommend them to everyone!

Lisa B. from Clifton, VA (Source: Yelp)


I recently tried out a different dentist (Let’s Smile Fairfax) because of the location and decor and I quickly regretted my decision to try another dentist. Shohreh Sharif’s office while cozy in appearance the hygienists are very kind and gentle. My one little one for some reason was not a fan of the fluoride and threw up, they not only made him feel comfortable again, but found him a replacement shirt to wear. the hygienists do a thorough job of cleaning the teeth and are quick too to minimize discomfort. The dentist was very nice and kind to not just my children but to all the children I see her deal with. I would recommend this dentist.

I’ve been to three pediatric dentists in two years and this was the best. Very patient, completely dedicated to children, and my son got a very thorough exam. My first visit i even found a valpak coupon, not sure if that’s still running, but I just made my second appt.

I love this place! My 2 year old son goes here, so ofcourse I also had to bring my nieces and nephews too! They are so awesome here, they are incredibly patient with everyone, especially with kids. So ofcourse, I also had to bring along my younger sibling LOL! I recommend this place to anyone and everyone! No regrets! CHECK THEM OUT!

Not only Dr. Sharif is professional, but also she is patient, kind and warm-hearted. Fantastic service and friendly staff! Exceeded my expectations in terms of the facility. Looking forward to my next visit. Highly recommend Dr. Sharif and ” Greater Washington Dentistry.”

This pediatric dental office is absolutely a five star!! Front desk staffs, dental assistants, and the doctors will make you feel like you are a part of their family! They have several ways to make the kids at ease ( Ipads, TV, singing doctors, dancing assistants, 10 stars front desk) Updating medical history through ipad is a plus, making sure that before they bring the patients back they make sure that patient is in a good condition. They care about saving patient’s teeth more than anything! I recommend this practice to anybody who need a dental doctor for their kids. Front desk will entertain you while you wait for your kid. I wish they see adults too!

Robin B. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


Our kids have been going here for years and they’ve always been great! The women at the front desk are very friendly and efficient. I actually enjoy taking my kids there. Dr. Sharif has always been pleasant, professional, and easy to discuss things with. Very happy! Recently, my teenage son had a couple seizures within a month and needed to have his braces temporarily removed for an MRI. Their office made what could have been an expensive, time consuming, complicated process in an emotional time easy. I received a call from one of the doctors to discuss and they fit my son in and made it happen. Great place to take your kids!!

Fantastic experience. Wonderful to be able to make an appointment for myself and my two daughters, everything from teeth cleaning to orthodontic work, and have it all seen to at once. Very friendly and professional staff. I am so very happy to have found them! I highly recommend!

Dr. Sharif was very transparent straightforward and thorough. She explained everything to us in a manner we can understand. Our family was very happy with the procedure and the results. The staff and nurses are very nice and professional. The practice is brand new with all the latest technologies for dentistry. Great place highly recommend!

Yoda M. from Glen Allen, VA (Source: Yelp)


I went to her for a second opinion on my 4 year old who needed a root canal. It turned out she was the only practice in the area that actually used the Fairfax Inova hospital to use anesthesia on my son (which insurance covers.) Most dental practices use a traveling anesthesiologist, olympic anesthesia, who won’t schedule any earlier than noon (but your kid can’t eat for 6 hours before that.) Somehow he considers that reasonable. Anyway, it took several months to get a hospital appointment but after the procedure, she called personally twice to check up on my son and see how he was doing. I really appreciated that level of care.

Denise B. from Aldie, VA (Source: Yelp)


Our three kids started going to Dr. Sharif at the age of 3 and continued until they were in their early 20’s!  In fact, one is still going to see her because he doesn’t want to change dentists yet – although, he knows that day is coming soon!  She is an excellent dentist, so calm and reassuring for the kids, and she is extremely knowledgeable. Two of my kids had to get braces, so she handled all of that as well. The staff is very welcoming and the techs are excellent too.  Everyone works extremely well with kids.  The office is very inviting, and the tv’s in the waiting and exam rooms with cartoons and kids’s shows playing continuously definitely helps. Needless to say, it was never hard to get the kids to go the dentist! I would definitely recommend Dr. Sharif and her practice!

Shiva S. from Washington D.C., DC (Source: Yelp)


My daughter was 2 and 1/2 when we first visited the dentist and it was a great experience. Dr. Sharif and her staff were patient and realized the anxiety associated with toddler’s first visit to the dentist and made it fun. They let my daughter touch the tooth cleaner, and never pushed her that first visit. Thereafter, there was far less anxiety associated with visiting the dentist and she does great. Most of all she is honest and knowledgeable, employing the latest technology and technics in the area of pediatric dentistry. Her staff was also helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend her, and recommend that you visit her early and often to keep your kids used to seeing the dentist and out of trouble with cavities.

Courtney M. from Centreville, VA (Source: Yelp)


From the receptionist to the dentist this place is 5 star!!! When my daughter needed a tooth pulled (6 yrs old) she and I were very anxious, but doctor Shohreh was so calm and soothing and before we could blink it was over! The second time she had a tooth pulled I was hesitant because it can be pricey and they told me they could do it without using gas (which is most of the cost) I wasn’t sure but she pulled it off no pain, very easy, very calm. Flash forward 1 year later, she just had 3 teeth pulled today and it was done in no time no anxiety and they asked my daughter what movie she would like to watch on demand during the procedure, it was awesome! Also there was a very scared little boy and they had the receptionist and 3 assistants helping the mom to get his x-rays. Dr. Shohreh is not pushy at all which I love! She suggested a retainer for my daughter a couple years ago and I said I’d like to wait until she’s older and that was that. She respected my decision. Also when we first started going here I was skeptical about radiation from x-rays so I declined and they never questioned me or forced them. The receptionist is always mindful of school holidays and tries to get us in when the kids won’t miss school. Highly recommend this practice!!

I highly recommend this office. I have lived in the NoVA area my whole life and I have had a hard time finding and keeping a pediatric dentist due to the various unsettling issues that turn patients off such as long-wait times, non-transparent treatment plans etc. This office respects patients time by seeing patients on time, clearly communicates patient responsibility costs, are accurate and efficient in scheduling appointments. The professionalism, kindness, expediency, and efficiency of all the staff (front desk, hygienists, assistants, etc.) are top-notch. They are welcoming, warm, and inclusive. This office is a gem, I am so happy i found them. I highly recommend them.

This Denist office is incredible!! The location is convenient. Dr Shorief is a wonderful, patient doctor that works well with children. She does a fantastic job treating her patients.Her staff especially Anna and Shelby take that extra time to really talk to you and get to know you to feel very comfortable during your visit.

Both girls continue to follow her and her colleagues at both the Merrifield & Fair Oaks office locations. The staff, hygienists and doctors are sensitive, knowledgeable and helpful with all aspects of their care including billing, appointment times, and working with the girls’ orthodontists. We highly recommend her practice
