Dr Ho and her team has provided me with best dental experience that I have ever received in over 60 years. Dr Ho gave me an assessment that was detailed in all steps I needed to take in achieving my goals. Martha and Jason are exceptional in all the services they provide while making me feel very comfortable and wanting to keep every appointment. In the past I dreaded a dental visit because it came with pain, dis fort and anxiety. Now it’s wonderful! The office atmosphere is very engaging that includes patient fun activities before you leave that leaves a smile on my face. Thank Dr Susan Ho and team!

I am a new customer and I’m impressed at the great customer service. From beginning to end the service was impeccable. The practice goes to extra lengths to ensure Safety given Covid and the staff are friendly and professional. The technology used is impressive compared to the previous my Dentist’s Practice. Dr. Ho is very thorough and communicates clearly and concisely. I appreciate her show and tell style whereby she actually took pictures of every area of my teeth and explained the procedures that were needed to bring my molars and teeth back to health. Most importantly, Dr. Ho is gentle and kind and checked in with me to make sure I was feeling okay at every step of today’s procedures. This is the one dental practice where I look forward to coming back.

The waiting area is really relaxing and comfortable, they also have some options for drinks such as coffee, tea, and even apple cider. The dentist’s and nurses are also extremely kind, and caring about their patients. Making sure they’re comfortable and not in any pain while they go about their procedures. The dentist itself is easy to contact and make an appointment with, as well as reschedule. I would definitely recommend this dentist to everyone- especially parents of children who are usually scared of the dentists.

Dr. Susan Ho’s office is one of the most HELPFUL places I ever went to. The service here is AMAZING. Ms. Marjorie in the front is always very nice and helpful every time we walk in. She always greets me with a smile. Dr. Ho is very friendly. She makes sure that throughout your appointment you are comfortable. The best part of getting my teeth extracted 2 weeks ago was that I got to watch a movie and before you knew it my teeth was out. If ever in the future I need more teeth taken out I will come to Dr. Ho. SHE IS THE BEST! THANK YOU M. H.

Dr. Ho and her staff are terrific!! It’s always a positive experience. They are friendly, welcoming, and extremely competent. The office is always accommodating when an unexpected appointment is needed . A great job all around. Dr. Ho and her staff are wonderful assets to the community, participating regularly in many charitable events and activities.

I have been seeing Dr. Ho for a little over a year now and have had the best experience ever at a dental office! The front desk staff is so helpful at explaining my insurance benefits and Dr. Ho has always greeted me with a warm smile. My appointments never feel rushed because everyone takes their time making sure I have the best experience possible. I’ve come to realize that insurance plans sound great and all but they rarely cover everything, let alone 100%, so having them explain to me my benefits and working with me to make sure I can afford to keep my mouth healthy has been incredible. I have referred family and friends to Dr. Ho and will continue doing so in the future! Also, the office is very easily accessible with their own private parking lot. I’m usually in and out in no time!

Cliff C. from Kensington, MD (Source: Yelp)


This is my first time visiting. I had brought my daughter in on this visit. From what I had seen so far, the staff is very welcoming. The office is clean and quiet. WiFi and light refreshments are available in the waiting area. Furthermore, this dental office is a 5 minute drive from my house. My daughter is still in the back being seen by the dentist. I will return later to add to this review.

I had my first dentist appointment with my two children yesterday here. I was amazed at how Dr. Ho and her staff were so welcoming. My husband & I even got a tour of the office, as well as, the warmest welcoming ever. From my personal experiences with other dental offices, no other dental office has taken their time to give their patient’s an office tour, nor make sure that their patient’s family was comfortable enough while their children were receiving treatments. I didn’t catch the name of the person who was assisting my children yesterday, but she was absolutely wonderful. It amazed me at how much patience she showed my children, given that they are ages 3 and 2. I am also very happy with Dr. Ho as she too was very patient with my children. Overall, nothing but positive feedback for Dr. Ho and her staff. People who come here will never regret coming here in the first place. Thank you Dr. Ho and staff for your services and most importantly, your wonderful hospitality. 🙂

I am not a fan of dentists; but, wow! when I visited Dr. Susan Ho on 5/7/18 for an infection that has emerged on my two molars post root canal years ago, I was never so impressed. Oh my God! First I was greeted by the staff in such a friendly manner, firm handshake, felt respected and important. I was offered yogurt of various kind, fresh fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and granola. There was organic tea, coffee etc. Then I was given a tour of the office by staff. They have the trends of latest dental technology. I was very impressed and I am not easily impressed at all. Dr. Ho is very professional, excellent bedmanners and knowledgeable. She made me so comfortable that I felt as if I have known her for years. What I appreciate the most is the concern she expressed about the condition of my molars/gum that were badly infected. (My regular dentist did not noted – what a shame!). Dr. Ho immediately took action – made arrangement for me to see an oral surgeon known to her for the following day (5/8/18) at 8:00 am. I followed up with my appointment this morning as planned. The surgeon and his staff were awesome. That’s another review in itself. I will be posting further reviews as my treatment continues with Dr. Ho for my implants. We need more doctors with strong work ethics, humility and compassion. Sad to say, but that is a rarity these days. Dr. Ho, may God continues to bless your practice.

I was very nervous going to the dentist since I had not been in some time. Dr. Oh is so nice and thoroughly explains everything she is doing. She makes wonderful suggestions and is very patient. I very much appreciated how carefully she evaluated my teeth and gums. I would suggest her to anyone who has been nervous about going to the dentist. The staff was quite friendly too. As an aside, as someone without dental insurance I was very happy with how transparent the front desk staff was in showing me estimates for cost of treatments.

Grace L. from Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ho is skilled and patient! She took time to perfect my restorations and thoroughly explained along the way. Her staff is pleasant, friendly, and professional. Marta the hygienist has the lightest touch and also very thorough. The use of the intra oral scanner is state of the art and very impressive. I highly recommend this dental office!

Dr. Ho and her staff are very professional, patient, and kind. I am always greeted by name when I walk into the office, which is bright, clean, and inviting. I had some very extensive procedures done and Dr. Ho always took the time to educate me and make sure I felt comfortable, even calling after hours to check on me. Marjorie is also great with coordinating insurance and providing appointment reminders. I highly recommend Kensington Natural Smiles.

Debi V. from Chevy Chase, MD (Source: Yelp)


I’m new to the area and needed a new dentist.  I picked Kensington Natural Smiles, with Dr. Ho, because I could walk there from my house.  I was delighted that Dr. Ho did a a thorough exam.  Her office is modern, with all the latest equipment.  She spent time with me and didn’t rush.  I’m so excited to have picked a great dentist to work with.

As a patient, I was a challenge because I am uncomfortable going to dentists. This practice is perfect for me or anyone who needs staff that are supportive. The staff is wonderful. The dentist is extremely good, uses good quality materials, and has a fantastic patient manner. The proof is that I have had measurable Improvement in my gum health, over the past year-and-a-half. In addition Dr Ho provided an implant, and I’m very impressed that she chose the Zimmer implant. Because I have to live with the implant, I am pleased that she uses quality materials. I recommend her to everybody. Also free parking.

My visits are always a comforting experience. Not only have they helped me get my gum disease under control, but they helped me get a better fitted teeth guard for my grinding issues, so I don’t wear them all down before I am even 60. I appreciate the service and ongoing education on proper oral health.

Jackie S. from Kensington, MD (Source: Yelp)


Always an amazing experience when coming to see Susan Ho, DDS. Greeted with smiles from the lovely staff and taken immediately with no wait. Helpful with any questions I might have and great with suggestions as well. My kids love coming and getting their teeth clean. Which is a huge plus. I also love the way they motivate them to continue with their upkeep on heathy teeth.  Great experience every time.

Dusty A. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


I love Kensington Nature Smiles! This is from someone who has feared the dentist for many years after some bad experiences. Dr Ho and her entire staff are kind, gentle and compassionate. I had to have numerous dental work for a year. I trusted Dr Ho’s expertise and advice throughout the process. She is patient and explains everything till you understand and feel comfortable with the plan. Her office staff is always pleasant and quick to offer a genuine welcome. They are happy to help make the billing and insurance process as easy as possible. I highly recommend this practice to patients of all ages.

Dr. Ho is great and the staff is very friendly. They’ve taken good care of me and my family. They seem to be taking Covid-19 safety very seriously. The hygienist wore extra protective equipment. There were some new safety processes in place for the patients, but they made it easy to navigate. Overall I would highly recommend this dentist office.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Ho since she took over the practice when my original dentist retired. Dr. Ho and her staff are extremely patient and very kind. Going to the dentist can be stressful, and she and her staff make every effort to ensure that the patient is comfortable and understands what is happening. If you have questions, they are happy to answer them. The office is very well-run and organized. It’s rare when a medical office runs on-time, and it’s very welcome! Depending on the season, you may leave the office with a free pumpkin, succulent, orange, yogurt…This dental office is all-around great!

Sabry L. from Kensington, MD (Source: Yelp)


I was very pleased with my visit to Dr. Ho’s office! Dr. Ho and her staff did an incredible job ensuring that I understood my oral health needs. Comfort is held to a very high standard! The check-up was thorough and detailed. You are presented with very competitive options for treatment and given time to make a decision before proceeding which, compared to other dentists, is appreciated. The options presented to me were reasonable in both quality and price. I will definitely recommend Dr. Ho to anyone looking for a great dentist!

Te Te F. from Rockville, MD (Source: Yelp)


I am a proud mom of six children. Their previous dentist was not up to my standards. I have seen plenty dental ads but Dr Susan Ho at Kensington Natural Smiles caught my attention immediately. My children have been coming here ever since and that was about 5 years ago. The service is amazing. The office is extremely clean and the equipment is always up to date. Not to mention the children always leave their dental visit with some type of gift or cool item that reinforces proper cleaning at home. One example is a timer to assure they brush their teeth long enough. Coming here is unlike any other dental experience. My children look forward to their dentist appointments and that makes me happy. I recommend any and every parent to make this facility their #1 go to Dentist!!!!

Maria M. from Columbia, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ho is the only dentist I will ever go to. I’m the world’s biggest coward, but Dr. Ho puts me at ease. She’s extremely honest, and will give you every option available. The staff has been with her forever, so that speaks for itself. The office is spotless, and the staff is great! If you make a Wednesday appointment, you will be offered a wonderful cup of soup. I’ll even give you a ride if you need one.

Jocelyn M. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


Hi! So today I came in for a dentist appointment, and the lady who cleaned my teeth was very wonderful. She told me what was going on with my teeth, if anything was wrong. Then Dr.Ho, she was outstanding when she was cleaning my teeth. She made me feel happy when she was cleaning my teeth. Thank you very much for making my teeth clean! I’m looking forward to coming to Natural Smiles again! This is my 2 time coming here. I’m very proud of coming to Natural Smiles! I can’t wait for my next cleaning.

Awesome dental practice with warm, caring, and highly-skilled staff. Dr. Ho is very considerate to explain her dental work every step of the way. Uses the latest technology in her practice and up to date. Great neighborhood practice for small town Kensington. Lucky to have a great dentist nearby.

I’ve never written a review for a denstist before now. Dr. Ho, Martha and the whole staff at Kensington Natural Smiles are wonderful. They are warm, welcoming and they really care about the whole person and their wellbeing. Both Martha and Dr. Ho explain the importance of treatment procedures and why they are beneficial. The office is run efficiently and they are always able to answer questions about my insurance coverage and a treatment right on the spot. And most importantly, my teeth look great and are in good health.

Imani M. from Wheaton-Glenmont, MD (Source: Yelp)


I love this place. I came here one time, referred by a family friend, and I haven’t gone back to my last Dentist since. The service is beyond great. The entire office is spotless. Even the waiting room is set up to make you feel at home. I have 3 younger siblings that come here as well and they absolutely love it here. I’ve recently began bringing my step sister and we still couldn’t be happier.

Maria W. from Fishers, IN (Source: Yelp)


I started here about 2 years ago and it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The waiting room has the ability to keep all age groups occupied. (Magazines, tea, coffee, toys, tv, etc.) When I am getting my teeth cleaned the dentist is always gentle, No matter who I get. Also they are very good with scheduling because the waiting room is never crowded. It’s great! For back to school they even give kids supplies.

My son and I have been patients of Dr. Ho for years. Her office is always very welcoming and know us by name. My son actually likes going there when I tell him he has an appointment, he’s 9, which just shows you how wonderful they are. The staff is extraordinary and professional. Definitely would recommend them for any individual or family!
