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

Terri D. from Orlando, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ansari and her team are fantastic.  She and her team have provided exceptional treatment and services.  Always taking care to ensure I didn’t experience any pain, with my very sensitive teeth, never recommending unnecessary procedures, always assisting with deciphering my insurance company’s information.  It was a fortunate day for me when Dr. Ansari bought my previous dentist’s practice.

This review is for Jasmine the front desk support at Lowes Island Dentistry during COVID. She has been a wonderful addition to the team, and her willingness to listen to all my teeth troubles of late put me ease whenever I am there. I can’t say enough about her professionalism, upbeat and easy demeanor, and her ability to respond with grace. She is often one of the first folks you speak with and see when visiting, and she sets the tone for the outstanding dental care I receive at each visit.

Dr. Ansari is an amazing dentist! On my first visit, she took a complete inventory of my teeth, indcluding Xrays and Photos. She explained to me in minute detail the health of my teeth. I had been seeing the same dentist for 20 years and he never gave me the information that Dr. Ansari did. She opened my eyes to ways I can help promote better dental health. I then went in for four crowns and a filling. The staff are so friendly and caring. They did everything in their power to make me comfortable and less stressed over the procedure. I am confident that Dr. Ansari will help me get my dental health into good shape. She loves information and will share that with you in a calm and gentle manner. She is my dentist for life!

Dr. Ansari was there when I needed her! She answered my call on a Sunday afternoon, coached me through my issue, and had me in the chair Monday morning at 7:30. Problem resolved! Also, the front desk is very thorough explaining the insurance process. A well rounded professional operation! Tom

I can’t recommend Dr. Ansari and her team enough. Skilled, professional, punctual, but also friendly, understanding, and fair. I had awful teeth and underwent a number of dental procedures with Dr. Ansari and I have a smile again. Dr. Ansari is the only dentist I’ve had to really take the time to talk to me and understand where I was coming from. Will continue to use this dentist and strongly recommend to everyone. Thank you, Dr. Ansari!

Frances N. from Herndon, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ansari is an excellent dentist.  She relates well with her patients, explains the procedures beforehand, and explains what she is doing while she is performing the procedures.  She filled several cavities, along with a cap.  The procedures went smoothly and without pain. Dr. Ansari also saw my five year old son and filled a cavity.  She was great with him.  There were no tears and he doesn’t even mind going back.  She does a great job, is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and has a wonderful way of relating to her patients to put them at ease.  I highly recommend her.

Jennifer S. from Ashburn, VA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start off by saying Dr. Ansari is an absolute perfectionist. Today I had some cavities filled and cosmetic work done on my front teeth. I was really afraid to have the cavities filled because… I’m a big chicken, but let me tell you that once the procedure was complete I was so happy Dr. Ansari did the work. She made me feel very comfortable in the chair and made my smile look amazing. I was referred to her by my orthodontist, Dr. Kortam from Ashburn Orthodontist, and the two of them teamed together to create an amazing smile. If you need a Dentist, one that really cares, is working with the latest and greatest technology, and makes you feel safe, then Dr. Ansari is your dentist.

Dr. Ansari comes across as a very passionate dentist who loves her job. I have been to her office a few times now and she did a great job for my filling and regular cleanings. She took pictures of all my teeth and explained to me what was going on, which tells the story about my dental health. This really made it easier for me to go with her recommendations for treatment. Her staff is very friendly and took the time to educate me on dental health and because of that I feel I am able to manage a much better dental hygiene. My whole family goes to Dr. Ansari including kids, who really love her.

I had a great experience. The hygienist was extremely diligent, friendly, and did an expert cleaning for me. The Doctor, who is probably the most qualified dentist in the whole of Northern VA, did an outstanding examination and offered me great forecast on the future of my teeth and general oral health. Very happy I discovered this clinic.

What a wonderful, family-style dental practice! Form the minute you walk in the door, you are treated to a warm welcome and immediately made to feel at ease. The staff knows each patient, and recalls key details of prior visits so that one truly feels well cared for. Excellent, excellent knowledge of dentistry, and excellent follow-up as well. I highly recommend Dr. Ansari.

Dr. Ansari and her staff are simply amazing! They are prompt, professional and very friendly. I went in for an annual check up and discussed my concern with my front tooth that was shifting out of alignment. For years this had caused me a lot of anxiety and I always hated how it showed up in photos. Previous dentists explained the only option was either braces or invisalign. I had already had 2 rounds of braces as a child and invisalign in college. All of my other teeth were straight except for this front tooth. The options would cost another $5000 – $10,000 and it just didn’t seem like solution that would guarantee results. Dr. Ansari was the first dentist to present the option of putting a cap on this tooth. I was hesitant at first but she explained everything to me and was confident this simple fix would give the best results. I am so glad I listened to her because it was instant results! Most of it was covered by insurance and out of pocket only costs me $500 (I had another cap done on a back tooth as well). Not only was she able to provide a solution that provided instant results and minimal costs, she was a perfectionist about matching the color. Many of her staff members who have worked on my teeth don’t realize it’s not a real tooth until they see an x-ray. Stop looking for a dentist and make an appointment. I still go to her even though I moved to MD and recommend her to all of my friends & coworkers. Thank you Lowes Island Dentistry & Dr. Ansari!

Fantastic experience EVERY time at this dental office! Dr. Ansari is a wonderful dentist and takes one’s concerns and needs seriously. She is creative and helpful and wants you to have the BEST smile. I just finished my Invisalign treatment and my teeth look great. She shaved down areas that were chipped or uneven and added composite to areas where there were small gaps. I am VERY happy with the outcome of my treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ansari and her dental office team!

Dr. Ansari and the staff at Lowes Island are the fantastic! They always meet or exceed my expectations. Dr Ansari makes sure that all your needs are met and provides personalized care. You will actually ENJOY going to the dentist! I’ve referred several of my friends and they all agree! On a 1 – 10 scale I rate Dr Ansari and the team a 10!

Sahira Kortam (Source: Google)


I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Ansari. She is an amazing dentist, she does so many CE courses to provide her patients with top notch dental care. Excellence is what she strives to provide. On top of that she has a big heart, she does a lot of charity work. She just helped someone in extreme pain, that can not afford going to a dentist, to get her dental work done at no cost & got her out of her severe pain & misery. Thank you Dr. Ansari for giving back to the community! Highly recommend!

The care I’ve received at this office is superior to any I’ve visited in the Sterling, Ashburn Va area. With in my first visit I knew this office would be my primary dental office. From the receptionist, dental assistance, and the doctor- I felt like a valued patient. This is in comparison to three dentist in a row ( only a week apart) who treated me like a number or just another upsell for dental procedures that I didn’t need. I was taken care of in every arena in this office and would highly recommend it to my friends and family. This will be my personal primary care center going forward. Thanks.

I think Dr. Ansari is an excellent doctor. She makes conservative recommendations and is truly looking out for her patients. She is easy to talk to and has a very nice bedside manner that immediately puts you at ease. I would highly recommend her and all her staff.

I was very impressed and pleased with the courtesy extended to me; and by the professional care provided by Dr. Ansary and her staff, particularly Diane, the hygenist. The procedures, the digital x-rays and the other equipments used were very modern and up to date. I will certainly return to this dentist for my routine dental care. Many Thanks

Dr. Ansari is wonderful! I have been going to this practice for years, and everyone there is thoroughly professional and thoughtful. I think I’ve had a total of 3 crowns done over the years. Dr. Ansari has the latest technology and can create the crown right there in the office in one visit. No temporary crown needed. I go in for regular cleanings and the dental hygienist does a great job. Couldn’t be happier with them!

I have gone to Lowes Island Dentistry for over 20 years. The staff is very knowledgeable and takes time to answer questions. They also take time to know their patients. I am very pleased with all of the dentistry work they have provided me. I highly recommend Lowe’s Island Denistry. I will also add that they are taking time to provide safety measures. Today I had pin-hole gum surgery. Dr. Ansari made sure I was comfortable during the procedure. She is an outstanding dentist and takes time to share her talents with her students. Thanks to the staff for providing great service to all of their patients!

Nasheen N. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


Had an emergency!! Broke my front tooth but was not worried as I knew Dr Ansari would do her magic As always, Dr. Ansari went the extra mile to ease my pain and addressed my problem immediately!! I was in dire pain and she made the effort to squeeze me into her busy schedule. Also, filled a cavity and deep cleansed my teeth with the latest Laser technology! She always goes above and beyond her duties to make her patients feel comfortable and well taken care of!! Great staff too! To thing off…Won a TV from the referral Raffle!! First time won anything…life is good

Carl W. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


This is one of my best dental experiences. I wish I had discovered them 7 years ago when i moved here. This was my second visit to them and Dr. Anasai and the staff and hygienists are wonderful. They explain everything in detail before the do it so you can understand what they will be doing. The office is clean and bright and the equipment is the latest. They take most insurance and file the paperwork for you.

Bazla Shahzad (Source: Google)


Great Staff, and even better Doctor. Dr. Ansari takes her time to actually show you what is being done, before and after photos, and makes sure you are comfortable while she is working. She is fast but a perfectionist, so you get the best treatment in a timely manner. The staff is also great. They are friendly and willing to accommodate to you to make sure you get the best treatment in a timeframe that suits you. I am really impressed with Dr. Ansari and her team and will recommend them to any one who is looking for a good Dentist.

Dr. Ansari is one of the most kind, honest and considerate people I have ever met. My parents and I had a consultation with her for a dental treatment. She was very thorough in explaining the treatment options. She is very warm and personable. Her office is also very beautiful and the staff is fantastic as well.

Olga Velasquez (Source: Google)


Dr.Ansari is honestly the best dentist in the area. From the moment I went in, they treated super kindly. My past experiences with dentists have always left me fearful of coming back. Dr.Ansari and her staff, however, treated me with the utmost respect and was extremely gentle and thorough with my cleaning. Dr. Ansari also helped me with a plan that would be budget-friendly. Thank you, Dr.Ansari, for all the kindness and for working with me to obtain a better smile!

Meredith E. from Herndon, VA (Source: Yelp)


Lowes Island Dentistry is an local dentistry to the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area that puts its patients first! As Mrs. District of Columbia America 2014, it was important that I had a smile that could really shine!! Dr. Ansari of Lowes Island Dentistry ensured that my smile was picture perfect! Together, we won the national Mrs. America Fitness Award that focuses on overall health. As a wife and mother, it is also important that my family has healthy smiles. Our dental health is better than ever! Dr. Ansari has taken excellent care of my family and will be my dentist for a lifetime! – Meredith Egwuatu Mrs. District of Columbia 2014

Dr. Ansari was very thorough and informative about the results of my exam, and I feel confident about having her perform any dental procedure I might need. She explained my potential issues in detail, including the various options. The hygienist, Mandana, gave me an expert cleaning and was also very thorough. All staff were very friendly and professional.

Absolutely the best dentist I have been to in my 34 years. Dr. Ansari(USAF Veteran) has your best interest in mind. Her attention to detail and advanced equipment is top notch. I was in and out in one visit with a new crown in less than two hours. I would definitely recommend her services to everyone. Her staff members are very professional and caring.

Robert Wood (Source: Google)


Dr. Ansari and her staff are just superb! She is an amazing dentist who spends a significant amount of time with you explaining your treatment plan and any options you might have. She and her dental techs helped me with a challenging crown replacement that was painful and frustrating. Working through several options we finally resolved it with a great end result. I just can not say enough about Dr. Ansari, her state of the art equipment in her office and just how friendly and welcoming her entire staff is! They also helped me resolve my dental claim for insurance on this same issue enabling a payment for my claim with the insurance company. Dr. Ansari has my highest recommendation for dental care.

Stephen Hartstack (Source: Google)


This practice is absolutely top-notch. The clinical staff deliver expert care via state-of-the-art equipment and procedures, and explain everything along the way. They emphasize preventive care, and are up-to-date with their advice. In addition, they have a one-year care plan which will save you money. Dr. Ansari is by far the best dentist who has ever taken care of me, and her staff is the best trained and most knowledgeable.

If you want the most gentle and throughout cleaning and other procedures of your life and literally all of your most honest tooth concerns met to insure your mouth’s future – this is the best place to go. The staff is angelic and the doctor not only knows the latest ways to do anything you need to your teeth but will not cheat you out of your money like many other practices might. All insurances are covered and her cosmetic procedures are the best well. I trust her with my mouth and wallet.

Yesterday I had a procedure that was recommend at my last visit 6 month visit. Was super disappointed that I wasn’t informed that Dr. Ansari – whom I have come to trust was not the attending Doctor on that day. Fast forward six weeks and the appointment was nothing like it was described nor was the cost. At the end everything worked out. Love Lowes Island Dentistry but there are times over the past couple of years where I feel there is lots of poor communication. Staying positive because of Dr. Ansari.

I am a regular patient of Dr. Ansari. Both her and her staff are amazing!!. They take the health of my teeth very seriously. There were times I needed help urgently and Dr. Ansari and her staff not only were kind enough to take care of my needs immediately but also followed with me to make sure I was in good health. I moved to Dr. Ansari from a different dentist and now very happy and completely satisfied with my decision. I always love visiting her for both routine and needed work knowing she is professional and ethical. I have recommended her to family and friends and have gotten many thank you compliments. I will definitely recommend her practice to all. John Sabir

For many people there is nothing more frightening than a dental visit. I was definitely one of those people. Although, I always would do what I had to and go, it gave me anxiety beyond measure. Until, I met Dr. Ansari and her team at Lowes Island Dentistry. I unfortunately always had issues with my oral health. As a kid, although I was never into sweets or candy, I managed to show up at each checkup, with a newly formed cavity. As an early adult, in my college years, I became obsessed with taking care of my teeth. However, genetics soon began to take over and the major work began. By age 21 I just knew I was on a fast track to early dentures!!! Nonetheless, I did what was necessary, endured the discomfort and pain and proceeded with the necessary dental work when needed. In my last 30s, after having my two children, I continued to see a decline in my oral health and managed to completely lose a tooth, during the end of my last pregnancy. How could I be 36 and already missing teeth??? I floss, twice a day!!! Then due to the tremendous opportunity of competing for and winning the 2016 title of Mrs. DC America, I was blessed to meet Dr. Uzma Ansari and her beautiful staff. From my first visit I felt at ease and my anxiety was nearly non existent. This was the most comprehensive dental appointment I ever had. I left from my initial consult feeling informed, comfortable but most of all empowered to take control over my oral health and finally have the truly amazing smile I’m now wearing proudly everyday. She took the time to make an attainable treatment plan for me, so I always knew what treatment I was due for next and when. As well as making sure I had all insurance and tretment information at hand; especially regarding associated and predicted costs. My confidence has sored and I’m not even done!! I’m so excited for my next visit… Wait did I just say that? They are truly the best and now our entire family are patient’s. Even our toddler, who recently had his first, official visit to the dentist. I can’t say enough, nor can I stop smiling! Thank you Dr. Ansari & Lowes Island Dentistry!

My appointment(s) with Dr. Ansari went better than I could have ever imagined. She is a very compassionate person and an expert in her field. Dr. Ansari provided an environment in which I was able to comfortably share my individual “quirks” and dental history – without judgement. She took the time to listen to my responses and asked “on target” questions until she was satisfied that she had what she needed to offer the best treatment options for me as an individual. She then clearly explained each option, noting the pros and cons (health and money wise) of each and the time-frames in which each option could be completed. Dr. Ansari then gave me “time” and “space” to consider each option – versus immediately pressing me for an answer. I have had subsequent visits which have gone very well and although I have a history of dreading and fearing any type of dental work, thanks to Dr. Ansari my anxiety has not been a factor when scheduling future appointments. Quite amazing.

9/10/18 update: another terrific visit to LID. My cleaning appointment was for 1100 but something came up so I showed up at 0930 and they accommodated me instantly. In fact Dr. Ansari herself did the cleaning and I couldn’t be more satisfied. I really appreciate their ability to make things work and delivery quality service. My wife and son have also had a terrific experience with LID. Thanks guys! Previous review: Terrific staff and friendly and reliable dentist. Always a pleasure to meet Dr. Ansari and the fine folks at LID.
