My first visit with Dr. Mitra Davaninejad D. was the most pleasant experience.  She and her staff were so friendly, efficient, organized, and detailed.  Dr. explained everything so clearly and thoroughly, and guided me to the next step to address my problem.  The office is spotless and nice.  There was no wait time.

I have been going to Dr. Davani’s practice Dental for many years. Dr. Davani is outstanding. She really cares for her patients and explains in clear terms when some actions are required. She is also gentle and sensitive when working on my teeth since I tend to have greater sensitivity to pain. The staff are always helpful, cheerful, and very pleasant. They make me feel very comfortable and “at home” when I come in for my visits. I couldn’t imagine going to a different practice.

This is an excellent, professional place to do your dental services. I was on a trip and I had a dental issue without knowing any good and experienced dentist in that area, long story short I was amazed by the service. Absolutely recommended.

Dr. Davaninejad is amazing. Danni works the front desk and she is super accommodating. Doc even took pictures of my teeth and gums to have for comparison in a few months! The office is beautifully decorated and I was brought back into my room immediately. I couldn’t ask for a better dentist! I am so lucky to have found her!

I had a great experience at Merrifield Dental Associates! Dr. Davaninejad was extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current dental research. She is an extremely caring person who goes above and beyond for her patients. She even took pictures of my teeth for comparison in the future, which no one has ever done before. Awesome office and employees.

I had a great experience at Merrifield Dental Associates! Professional, courteous, and friendly staff made me feel like family. I felt safe and comfortable with their suberb level of cleanliness and caution, especially with the concerns of Covid-19 spread. Every detail of the experience is well- thought out and thorough. Dr.Davani was very professional examining and providing with solutions by priority.I have been to other dentists that exaggerated what my needs were in order to make more money so it was a relief to find a dentist with integrity. Definitely recommend.

First time patient. They were able to see me for a dental emergency when my previous dentist wasn’t available. Throughout the entire 2 week process they were great about communicating with me, making sure I was comfortable, and answered all my questions. I will be back. Thank you Dr Davaninejad and the rest of the team there!

I can not explain my feeling with words. They are excellent! God sent Dr. Davaninejad to me! She is great person great dentist I have ever seen. I have very big problem in my tooth but she solved it without any pain. She and her assistant became my angels! Thank her and her assistant for everything!

Lauren D. from Fort Belvoir, VA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t put into words how thankful I am for Dr. Davaninejad!! I am so lucky to have found her. The office is amazing and friendly, Cindy is exceptional, and the atmosphere is spotless, modern and calm all at the same time. And Dr. D is such a blessing. Cleanings are extremely hard for me to tolerate due to gum recession, bone loss and meds that make me extra sensitive. Other dentists and hygienists have blown me off and thought cleanings shouldn’t hurt and were not willing to find ways to make them tolerable which made me skip my 6 month cleaning. Dr. D listened to me, and got me numb before the cleaning (thank you thank you). Her bedside manner is friendly, caring, sincere and extremely competent. After getting numb my system didn’t like the numbing for some reason and I almost passed out numerous times (the last few years I react funny to getting numbed up and it’s not a pleasant visceral reaction…)I felt embarrassed but I was so well taken care of that Dr. D was able to finish the deep cleaning and fill 3 cavities (she offered to allow me to come back another day instead but I wanted to get it over with and I knew if I had to change my mind I would be given that grace). After our appointment, Dr. D actually took the time to go over my Invisalign treatment plan in her office because she had received images from the dental trays that were on order. She made sure I was pleased with how everything would turn out. Actually she is recommending Invisalign because I cracked a back tooth and I didn’t even know it and I also have done quite a bit of damage from my uneven bite. Others have recommended Invisalign but said it was for cosmetic reasons however no one took the time to look further and see the true problem. Between my bone loss and my uneven bite I could’ve potentially been looking at a myriad of dental issues in the near future. However with her treatment plan I’ll be well on the way to stopping any further cracking and bone loss and to having the healthiest teeth I’ve ever had. Oh and Dr. D called me before she left for the day to check up on me since I almost passed out in her chair early in our appointment. That blew me away and was so kind, especially since I was fine after our appointment. After some doctors have performed fairly significant procedures I have not received a call to check in. Thank you for saving my teeth and my sanity in the dental chair. I’ll see you in 6 months!

This was my first time visiting this office. All of the staff were courteous and welcoming. I appreciated that everyone took the time to thoroughly explain what they were doing and also were happy to answer the questions I had. Unlike other dental appointments I’ve had in the past, this process didn’t feel rushed. They did a thorough job. Will definitely be back again.

There are no words to describe how much trustworthy is Dr. Davani! She absolutely knows what she is doing. Dr. D did a great job with my smile, I went in for several fillings, and a new technique of topical veneers for two teeth. I highly recommend her for any complex or cosmetic procedures. She is a perfectionist. I also want to point out the staff that works there is also awesome. Believe it or not I am looking forward to the next meeting in 3 weeks that’s how much I enjoy it over there.

She is by far the best Dentist I have ever seen. She came in to see me on her day off and I was just an out of town visitor. She was so kind and compassionate. She was able to take care of my crown that had broken off and emailed the xrays to me incase they were needed by my dentist in Florida. If you are looking for a dentist I would highly recommend her.

I learned about this office through a Groupon promotion and used the coupon to get my teeth cleaned. I was very happy with the professionalism of the staff and the dentist and the recommendations she gave me. I have booked my follow up visits with this practice, for myself and for my family, I am very happy to find this dentist since my previous dentist (whom we loved !) decided not to return to work after her second child. I have tried a few other practices, but now I believe we have found our new dental “home”!

If you are dentist phobic this is the dental practice for you. Dr. Davaninejad is very gentle, she took the time to explain every detail of my procedure, sent me a handwritten thank you card, followed up the next day to make sure I was ok. Cindy is awesome, made sure I knew exactly what my insurance paid for. You need to make Merrifield Dental Associates your dental provider you won’t be sorry.

I went to see Dr.Davaninejad for root canal and crown and had such a pleasant experience. The front desk receptionist; Cindy was amazing and very helpful. Overall the office is very clean and professional as well as affordable as well! So glad I found this place and could not recommend this family practice more! Her husband Nima Raufinia and his assistant, and the front desk help Roxy (from silver spring office) was also great, careful and detail oriented. Both are superb dentists and the atmosphere is relaxing. Thanks and I’ll keep coming back!

I love Dr. Davani!!!!!! She is not only talented, caring, and knowledgeable but her entire staff is absolutely kind and professional. The overall office is beautiful and eco friendly. I am extremely grateful to her and her staff for taking care of emergency in such a timely matter. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Davaninejad and her staff were wonderful for my first visit! Very personable, efficient, competent, and explained everything regarding my exam in detail. Very nice, clean, COVID-safe facility! I’m looking forward to my next cleaning! Setting up my first appointment was seamless and staff were very helpful in sorting out insurance. Highly recommend if you are searching for a new dentist!

Sundeep S. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


If you need a trusted non greedy and the best bedside manner dentist – Don’t go anywhere else.  Dr. Davaninejad is honest as they come. While other dentist told my mom to perform extraction and do impacts – keeping her personal interest aside she retook the X-ray and said none of that is required.  Good deep cleaning will do just fine.  Her bedside manners were the best I have seen from any doctors – helping my mom getting off the chair – listening to her patiently and catering to her needs. The entire staff was so so nice.  Thx for making dental experience a pleasant one.

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


The first time I seen Dr. Davaninejad was in June 2020. I came across this office because they accepted my insurance. I thought I would give it a chance, and I’m so glad I did! I love the look of the office, very modern and clean. The staff are super friendly. At the time I was pregnant with very irritated, bleeding gums. I was sure I had gum disease but Dr. D assured me it was because the pregnancy hormones. She recommended a mouthwash and it helped. I went yesterday for my 6 month recall. I’m so happy with the service every time. I’m so lucky I found Dr. D. I’m not going anywhere else. Definitely recommend.

I found this practice online after a Google search and came in for a free consultation on a specific tooth. My current dentist said I needed a filling and I wanted to make sure it was necessary. The entire staff was extremely courteous and friendly. They had hand sanitizer on the front desk and even “clean” and “dirty” pen holders. They of course screened me for COVID symptoms (temperature, questionnaire). The dentist was extremely friendly and helpful. It turns out we’re neighbors, and we chatted about that for a minute. She helped me understand my tooth issue and even took quick digital pictures and showed it to me close up on her screen so I could understand the problem and my options. I like my old dentist, but I was blown away by the entire staff here. They even gave me dental insurance recommendations. I will definitely come back here for a visit. It was the highlight of my day! 🙂

This office was amazing. First time patient moved to the area and very happy with my choice. Dr. Davaninejad is very caring, personable, and thorough. She was very honest and took all the time to explain her work. She surrounds herself with a fantastic staff (Sarah was great!) and was one of the most enjoyable dentist visits I’ve experienced. Takes most insurances and fluoride was super fair priced. I immediately recommended my friend (whom was looking to change dentists) to go. As long as I live here I will go to her.

Dr. Davaninejad has a great chair-side manner that put me at ease from the start. She explained thoroughly all issues she uncovered during the examination. Then she generously shared excellent advice on improving my dental hygiene routine going forward. Her staff members Sara and Anny are friendly and helpful. Her office is clean, well lit and modern. Covid-19 safety protocols are clearly being practiced. In summary it was a stress free and even pleasant visit to the dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Davaninejad!

As a new patient of Merrifield Dental Associates, I was astonished with how quickly the staff and Dr. Davaninejad exceeded my expectations. The office is beautiful and the staff are all extraordinarily friendly; every measure and accommodation is made to meet your needs and ultimate comfort. Excellent service; professional and courteous. My first appointment was for a routine cleaning and I can without a doubt say that this was the first time that I wasn’t forced to purchase a product or service that I didn’t actually need. Sara was so gentle and painless. Most importantly, the care provided by Dr. Davaninejad is that of the highest quality. She is attentative and incredibly thorough; an exceptional dentist who truly cares for her patients and who has created an amazing team who share the same outlook. I highly recommend Merrifield Dental Associates.

I was seen by this office about a week ago and they were nothing but kind and helpful. It had been a couple years since my last dentist visit and they didn’t hesitate to get me all checked out and set back on track. The doctor was attentive and helpful and she made sure I was comfortable. The front desk is kind and informative and very sweet. I highly recommend this dentist office! They outfitted me with an amazing night guard and they were very on top of having it done as quickly as possible. They also work with our United Concordia insurance which is amazing. I will continue to be seen here as long as we live in the area.

I visited the practice last week for the first time, the staff were really welcoming as well as accommodating in checking my dental plan. Dr. Davani was very professional and highly skilled, if you are looking for an expert in dental work don’t look any further. I really enjoyed the cleanliness of the office and the brand new feels. I felt very comfortable during my visit and very well taken care of. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a reliable dentist in the VA area.

This is an exceptional dental practice. First went Dr. Davaninejad in November of 2019. Was impressed, and continue to be, with the professionalism and quality of patient service. The Doctor and her staff are warm, personable and sensitive to what the patient is experiencing. They have taken significant effort to ensure their patients are safe and not put in harm’s way when visiting the office. Have seen a variety of dentists in my 68 years and hands down, she is the best. Do yourself a favor, if you need dental work, this is the practice you want.

Increcredibly professional and friendly service from front desk to technician to doctor. The office is clean and beautiful. I felt completely at ease throughout my visit. Dr. Davaninejad is very patient and describes the procedure every step of the way. I like that they also respected the patient’s time and made sure I wasn’t kept waiting too long. I highly highly recommend.

Found myself in the position of looking for a new dentist with whom I could affiliate. Merrifield Dental Associates was recommended by a friend whose opinion I value. Hands down, the best recommendation I’ve ever received. The practice of Dr. Davaninejad is fantastic. They are a practice that epitomizes professionalism, great care and an excellent patient sensitivity. Like most folks, I am not someone who thinks “Wow, I can’t wait to get to the dentist” and some less than positive past experiences have jaded my view. That said, I have to emphasize my surprise and pleasure following my first visit to this practice. They focus on the human element and have sincere empathy. Looking for a greatd practice? You just found the one.

This was my first visit with St. Davaninejad and I.must say that I was thorouggly, even surprisingly, impressed by her professionalism and thoroughness. She took time to explain the xrays in detail, talked about options, and even pointed out a procedure that should be done by a specialist. She was congenial, placing no pressure whatsoever. She was also quite transparent regarding different costs which was a stark contrast to some other dentists. Finally, I very much liked the cordially of the receptionist and the professionalism of her clinical assistant. All in all, a superb first experience

Dr. Davani is as good as it gets in the DMV region. She is the ultimate professional, and an expert at her craft. She is willing to take on the most complex challenges. Dr. Davani truly cares about her patients, and takes her time getting to know and understand them; which is a big deal considering they are in a production and volume business. Simply put, values quality over quantity. I strongly recommend her over any other dentist. You will not regret it.
