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

Russ H. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


Selecting Dr. Dost as our family dentist is one of the best decisions we ever made. From cleaning to orthodontic procedure to implants, Dr. dost has provided us with the best professional dentistry available in the area. At the age of 73, I have made numerous visits to dental offices, and this includes my military career of more than 20 years. I have been a patient since I retired in 1993, but my family started their visits in 1989. We’ve been very happy with our service and Dr. Dost provides a personality that is second to none. His staff is “people friendly” and gives you a welcome feeling from the time you enter the office, and one of the best features is that procedures are reasonably priced. Hats off to Dr. Dost & staff.

So here it is 4 years later and I still give this place 5 stars! Barbara was my Hygienist up until she left late last year. When my appointment came for my cleaning I was literally terrified because I have EXTREMELY sensitive teeth and I worried the new person wouldn’t understand how severe it is like Barbara did. Tsige Gidey truly listen to me when I was telling her my concerns and fears and she really went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable while giving me the best cleaning she could. Thank you Tsige! Can’t wait to see you again in 6 months!

I have been a patient of Dr. Dost and Dr. Cary. My wife introduced me to Dr. Dost. I have had a lot of dental work done in the past (3.5 years for braces), but I have never seen a team so professional. I spent a long time in the dental chair today with Dr. Cary and I was amazed at her competence (she saved what I figured was a lost tooth and built a bridge with it). Dr. Dost also worked diligently extracting a seriously difficult tooth to remove . Today I met a Dental Assitant with 30 plus years experience with Dr. Dost who had skills that I had never seen before from someone in her position. You also don’t need dental insurance to see Dr. Dost. I would recommend their team!

I have been a patient of Dr. Dost for 5+ years. Last month I went in for a broken tooth. After an exam and x-Ray, it was evident I needed a root canal. I worried about my upcoming procedure for days and told Dr. Dost my concerns when he came to prep me. He explained everything and assured me I would not feel any pain and he was right! I had no pain during or after the root canal. When he was done we discussed pain management for the following 24 hours but he did such an amazing job, I didn’t need any other than Advil and I did that as a precautionary measure. I would recommend Dr. Dost to all of my family, friends and complete strangers. It took finding Dr. Dost to realize that dental procedures don’t have to be painful. I would also add that his staff is wonderful, every single one that I’ve been in contact with.

I have been visiting the office of Dr. Dost for 10+ years. I’ve always had such a great experience and the entire staff is amazing! I’ve been going every 6 months for regular cleanings and have always had a wonderful experience. Recently, I broke my front tooth. MY FRONT TOOTH! This was very stressful for me me but I knew that Dr. Dost could fix it. I went in for the consultation and he recommended a veneer. I’ve never had dental issues so this was creating a bit of uncertainty/anxiety for me and I was a little hesitant. However, I got my permanent veneer applied by Dr. Dost today and it’s perfect! His attention to detail, meticulous nature, caring and very patient demeanor made the whole experience very relaxed and enjoyable. Oh, by the way, my tooth looks very natural and perfect!! If you’re looking for a great dentist, look no further! Dr. Dost and the staff at Lake Ridge Dental are awesome and you will not be disappointed!

K. O. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


We have lived in the area for 20 years now and would not see any other Dentist. His office is so clean and professional. The girls are amazing and so friendly. If you need anything they are there personally and professionally. I am happy to have all my family members there and continue to refer friends. They even have great deals and referral programs. If you want someone you can trust and feel comfortable with then Dr. Dost and Staff are who you want to see!

Pamela H. from Tucson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Dost for 25 years and he is amazing. Since I was a child I’ve had anxiety and fear of the dentist, and he has always shown me kindness and patience and helped me get through several procedures. I’m somewhat of a frequent flyer here. I’ve had everything done from fillings on cavities, root canals, crowns, veneers, and most recently a dental implant. His staff is so accommodating, pleasant, and helpful and makes it the not so pleasant experience of going to the dentist bearable! Barb the hygienist is also amazing as well as Angie. They also accept several types of insurance as well. There is another doctor, Dr. Kara who also practices here and I’ve heard she’s amazing as well. Highly recommend this entire practice.

Had a great first experience as a new patient. The office is well-lit, spacious, and staffed with pleasant receptionists. Tsige performed a thorough and gentle cleaning, and politely discussed changes to my future care plan. I hope anyone who uses this review to make their decision enjoys the same first-rate experience that I did.

I love Dr. Dost and the whole office crew! They are always available and so friendly. I recently moved out of the area but I’m not willing to change my dentist. They were there when I needed an emergency root canal and worked with me to get it fixed. I always recommend Dr. Dost all the time. Thank you for all your wonderful service!

Carolyn S. from White Oak, MD (Source: Yelp)


I thought the reviews were fake because everyone hates the dentist lol but he’s special. He’s really a gem. He is so fast (who wants to sit in a dentist chair all day?), he listened when I told him I was hard to numb and made sure I had a pain free experience. Excellent customer service from him and all the staff. Tony is especially kind and helpful. He’s also affordable in my opinion. My old dentist *hated* never let me leave without taking at least $700 out of my pocket after insurance.

Ron H. from Manassas, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Dost for the past 5 years now and am finally found a regular dentist that is both friendly and treats me right. I can’t think of anything bad to say because I’ve never had a bad experience at their office. With that being said, I have to give Dr. Dost five stars! Knowledgable staff and a brand new office that is both spotless and modern. Seeing the dentist can be a little wait if you don’t have a pre-arranged appointment, but that of course is because he is so popular.

Dr. Dost is the most compassionate dentist with an easy spirit… I have known Dr. Dost for over thirty-three years…From then to now , I have absolutely no complaints… Such a hard working scholar in his field… From coast to coast Dr. Robert C. Dost is the dentist with a plan to get you to your best smile…

Jen C. from Manassas, VA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going here since i was a child. They recently upgraded the office and it looks gorgeous. But, even better, the staff is always so friendly and Dr. Dost himself is amazing at what he does. I feel the need to specifically mention Brenda at the front desk.. She is always kind and help, my whole family just loves her. Having someone so welcoming working the front desk will keep the patients coming back! Great job Dr. Dost and staff 🙂

Nicholas A. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


Very lucky to be treated by Dr. Dost and his staff.  I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time, and I definitely went to the right place!  The initial visit with the cleaning were nothing short of spectacular.  I would recommend anyone to Dr. Dost’s office for all aspects of dental care.  Thank you for the great experience.  My teeth look and feel great!

Of course my experience with Dr. Dost was AMAZING as always!!! Dr. Dost has been the ONLY Dentist in my entire life that makes me feel comfortable at the dentist. I’m not ashamed to say that, at 52 I am extremely afraid of the dentist and because of that fear, I neglected my teeth and that’s what I am ashamed of! I will NEVER go to another dentist besides Dr. Dost! He has the BEST team in the world

Dr.Dost is the BEST, hands down there is no other with such an understanding manner. No anxiety needed , just sit back relax and rest assured Dr.Dost and his wonderful assistant Jasmine will make you smile for miles. Bless the entire staff for all that they do to make dental visits more than pleasant.

Dr. Dost and Staff are very caring and true professionals. The environment is always clean and neat. My appointment today was very pleasant. I highly recommend this dental business for all your dental needs. Thank you for the opportunity to provide and express my experience with Dr Dost and his Staff.

My daughter and I just started going to see Dr. Dost and Brooke the dental hygienist. This was the most pleasant experience in a dentist office I’ve had in 42 years. The staff made us feel right at home and welcome. I felt like we had been going there for years. They are well organized, clean, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. For the first time in my life I look forward to my next dental appointment.

Kelly Stewart (Source: Google)


I’ve been a longtime patient of this practice and was sad to learn Dr. Dost had retired (well wishes to him in his retirement!). My experience here since he has left has been great, I’m a nervous dental patient, but Dr. Masoud and the hygienist staff have ensured that I’m comfortable during my treatments. I still highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for dental care in the Lake Ridge/Woodbridge area.

Kamal G. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


My wife recommended them to me after a non satisfactory experience with another dentist.  The staff were professional and the hygienist was very good, meticulous and precise she took a good care and she took her time to examine each tooth. It took little bit longer but the result was good. It has been over 10 years that I didn’t have a good cleaning like this.

Paul P. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


I was very fortunate to have found Dr. Dost over 16 years ago. His staff is always professional and easy to work with, even the billing department. Dr. Dost has shown me he genuinely does care about my family’s overall health and that dentistry can be painless. You should do yourself a favor and experience having the best Oral Surgeon in NoVa (imo) that will provide all your dental needs. You will be glad you did.

A visit to the dentist is a different prospect than it was when I was a kid. I still don’t like to go. It just not comfortable having grown adults rooting around in your face looking for crud stuck in your teeth. However, Dr. Dost and his staff make the experience somewhat pleasant. The desk staff is very nice and they always have a smile for you when you walk into the office. Dr. Dost and all the dental hygienists and technicians are very professional and don’t waste time. They get to work on your grill as soon as they can. Along the way, they take the time to make you feel comfortable through polite conversation. If you share a joke with the doctor, he may return the favor. I feel that the more I go, the better I will get to know the staff. Maybe, I will eventually qualify for a family discount. If you are the type of person that has anxieties about visiting the dentist, give Dr. Dost and his staff a chance. Your worries will disappear as your smile improves.

Great dentist i got my teeth cleaned there i loved the staff from front desk to check out they were all nice and helpful. My Hygienist “Tsige” she is so sweet and nice and was explaining to me what i need to get and what has to be done in a very nice way She did really good job on cleaning my teeth. Great experience and Great customer service. 🙂

I am very anxious about going to the dentist, but Dr Dost and his staff are very caring, gentle and do their best to alleviate any discomfort. They always explain what they need to do. I had hip surgery recently and the technician even held my hand and led me back to the front desk after she finished. I highly recommend this dentist and his staff.

Kelli K. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dost and Staff are amazing! They are kind and gentle and understand the stresses of dental care. He is very patient and listens to me without any pressure or rush. He knows how stressful having work done can be and he really makes you feel comfortable. I am so happy I found his office and now I do not put off having my work done. I brought my family over and they love him as well! I like the fact that he can handle almost every procedure in his office so I do not have to travel around and mess with other Doctors. The office is clean and the staff is very professional and helpful. They will breakdown your insurance benefits for you so you can understand and know your coverage. For anyone who has a dental phobia or just wants a great Dentist Dr. Dost is the one I would highly recommend!!

Theana K. from Fairfax Station, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Dr. Dost’s office for many years. He has established an excellent practice. Had my teeth routinely cleaned last week by Tsige, and it was a learning experience for me, as she explained everything she was doing and why. This is important to me, as a professor by profession. In on time, and out. Efficiency along with excellence.

Holly M. from Brownstown Charter Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


My husband, daughters and I are all patients at Dr. Dost’s office. They are wonderful. I have severe anxiety, and Barb my hygienist is always fantastic about reassuring me and working with me during the cleaning. Dr. Dost is very nice and caring. Recently we have all seen Dr. Kara and she is great as well. I had to have fillings done and was an anxious mess and she checked on me constantly, let me take breaks when I needed them and really seemed to care. My girls love going to this office, and actually ask when they can go to the dentist again.

B B. from Green Bay, WI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dost has been my dentist for well over 20 years and there is a reason I’ve stayed with his practice for so long.  He and his staff are always welcoming, warm, funny yet professional, and they go above and beyond to put you at ease.  I must give them super props for making accommodations for things that pop up (or out in the case of an old filling done by a different dentist!)…they get me in the door ASAP (usually the same day…even if I call late) and get things taken care of quickly and as painlessly as possible.  I highly recommend you stop by and give them a try.

I would recommend Lake Ridge Dental to my friends and family. Very professional and knowledgeable staff. I worked with Tsige and she was exceptional. She provided me with valuable information and made recommendations based on the information I shared with her. She explained what she was going to do and keep in well informed.

Mark Snodgrass (Source: Google)


Dr. Dost is the best dentist on the planet. His true concern for each patient is unrenounced and his almost impossible to find in this day and time. I would highly recommend any new patient or any of my friends or family to go see him. I have been a patient of doctor Dost for over 12 years and had several emergency dental needs that needed to be addressed and he always went out of his way to take care of me. You will not find a better dental practice anywhere in the state of Virginia that provides the Professional Care that he does

Melissa H. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


I honestly can not say enough great things about this place. If you are looking for a new dentist in the area I highly recommend Dr Dost! I have been going to him for 20 years. The entire office staff is wonderful! They are more than welcoming and have always treated my family so kindly! Dost is an amazing dentist! I am very sensitive when it comes to going to the dentist and he has always been nothing but understanding and patient! If I ever moved away from the area I know I would travel how ever long to go to Dr Dost! I wish I could give them 10 stars instead of five!

Thomas F. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


As a dental industry professional, I’m proud to say Dr. Dost is my dentist.  This practice goes to great length to employ the latest techniques and technology to give us the best patient experience possible.  In addition, and more importantly, they are just nice caring people.  Choose them for your dental care and it will be one of your better healthcare decisions.

Dr. Dost and his staff are absolutely fabulous. I have been seeing Dr. Dost for over 15 years, since I was a kid, and have gone out of my way to continue coming back. Even while living abroad, I made sure to come visit Dr. Dost while home seeing family. I trust Dr. Dost and his judgement on necessary dental procedures as he is always looking out for what is best for me and to minimize required work. The entire office staff is incredibly friendly, caring, and honest and make sure I have the best possible experience. I have had nothing but outstanding service and the utmost quality of care and would highly recommend Dr. Dost and his team!

My experience at Lake Ridge Dental is always a welcoming one. On the 4th of November, I had my cleaning and it was so great as always. I felt at home as always. Dr. Dost was so welcoming as always. My cleaning was done by one of the experienced Dentists, Dr. Brookes and she was so awesome. Very knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Dost has a very wonderful team, right from the receptionists to the Doctors, everyone is so nice. Keep up the good work team.

Dr. Dost and his staff are always professional and courteous. My appointments have always been on time. My semiannual cleanings have been performed by different hygienists, each thoroughly conducted. Dr. Dost and staff have been our family dentist practice for many years now and even though my kids are grown and on their own, they still see his practice for their dental care. I highly recommend them for the full range of dental care and procedures.
