Mike B. from Virginia Square, Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emad has been my dentist and my family’s dentist for over 30 years. I have nothing but the best to say about him and his office. When my insurance changed they even worked with me and my new provider so I could continue to see my life long dentist. I’d recommend Nova Dental Care and Dr. Emad to anyone looking for a great dentist in the northern Virginia area.

Our family has had wonderful experiences with Dr Neal Emad and Dr Marcus Emad of NOVA Dental Care. They have attended to a broad range of our dental needs (from simple to complex) with expertise, care, and compassion. They are very attentive and professional and have a true passion for dentistry. We highly recommend NOVA Dental Care and their dedicated staff and appreciate their commitment to exceptional customer service.

I was extremely nervous about the dental work I needed done, and Dr. Emad really calmed me down. He was absolutely wonderful. He made time for me in his schedule when I needed some last minute work done, and his staff are very helpful and kind as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Neal Emad!

Susan M. from McLean, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emad has been our family dentist for almost twenty years.  He is without doubt one of the best dentists in the region. For example, a few weeks ago I had a dental emergency, on a day when the clinic was closed.  But Dr. Emad responded immediately, met me at the clinic within half an hour, and took care of the emergency.  He has handled everything from cavities, to crowns and implants for our family.  He cares deeply that the care his patients receive is top of the line. He always follows up with a phone call to  make sure there are no issues. Dr. Emad and his staff are very conscientious, honest and professional.  We feel very lucky to have found him!

Dr. Emad has been my dentist for the past 25 years. He has taken care of numerous crowns and root canals for me (I did not grow up with good dental hygiene), he took care of braces for both of my daughters, and he continues to be conscientious in my dental care. In December 2018, he removed my youngest daughter’s wisdom teeth (she is 18). He really took his time and was as gentle as possible. A week later, you could not even tell that anything had been done in her mouth – the extraction sites had healed well. Dr. Emad is always professional and personable. I feel he truly cares of my family as patients.

David L. from Hamilton, VA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been going to Dr Emad at Nova Dental Care of Vienna for 25 years. Dr Emad is a great guy and and a great dentist. Unlike dentists I have had before him, he is honest and conscientious as well as competent. No matter what your dental concerns, he does it all and he does it well. I would highly recommend him and his staff. Just Sayin’ David L

Vicky B. from Falls Church, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emad has been our family dentist for well over 15 years, and today he also has my mother who moved to Nova recently.  She could not say enough good things.  He saw her promptly, assessed what she needed, explained the procedures and took care of her all at once.  She is a very happy customer.  He then called her the next day to make sure all was ok, as he regularly does whenever we have anything done beyond a basic checkup. He is always professional, courteous, respectful, caring and amazing with children.  And to top it off, he has a great sense of humor.  Everyone is always happy after the visit, regardless of what is done.  He has my complete trust and that of everyone in the family.  I will continue to highly recommend him to my friends – which I have done many times to friends who have also become loyal patients!

Dr. Neal R. Emad has been our family dentist for over 25 years. He is absolutely the best dentist I’ve ever had! He’s very professional, warm, funny, caring and is state-of-the-art in his practice. One of the little things he does regularly is to call the night after a dental procedure to make sure there’s no pain and that everything is going smoothly. I truly appreciate him and his staff and can’t imagine going to anyone else.

Pam G (Source: Google)


I have been lucky enough to have had Dr. Emad as a dentist for 5 years. He is one of the most kind, genuine people I have ever met. He noticed a rotten tooth before I had symptoms and placed a crown without problems. He even called the next day to see how I was doing. He doesn’t oversell interventions and allows you to make your own decisions about treatment. Highly recommend!

Karen A. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


The writer of the one-star review has written seven reviews on Yelp. Of the seven, two received five stars and she awarded the rest one star. It’s interesting to note that all her one-star reviews are about medical professionals, which may suggest a negative perception of the profession in general. She is certainly entitled to her opinion, and I have great sympathy for her negative experiences, but I hope all the positive reviews of Dr. Emad preset a more accurate picture of his practice.

Laurie V. from Adams Morgan, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emad has been our family dentist since 1999 and we are very pleased with his services.  Over the years we have seen him for an emergency tooth extraction on my then 3 year old who had a tooth abscess, root canals, crowns, and orthodontics for our two children, now 21 and 19 years old.  We find it well worth the 23 mile trip from our home to his Chantilly office to have our dental needs attended to by Dr. Emad and his friendly staff.  On occasion we have also visited the Vienna office.  I have recommended Dr. Emad to many co-workers and friends – all of whom have had positive reports of their experiences.  If you are seeking a compassionate and genuinely caring dentist, call Dr. Emad.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Emad at NOVA Dental Care for a very long time. 15 + years. I think he is one of the most compassionate and caring persons I’ve ever encountered in my life. He always takes time to let me know what’s happening and to be sure I am not having any discomfort. His follow up phone calls are always welcome. He knows me well enough by now and that my anxiety can quickly go off the charts. His calm and reassuring manner are a comfort to me. The Staff is like a well oiled machine. I don’t think I’ve ever had to wait for my appointment. Everyone is aware of my time too.

Elizabeth K. from Vonore, TN (Source: Yelp)


Your review helps others learn about great local businesses. Excellent! Our family has been in Dr. Emad’s dental care since 1987. We live in Tennessee now and drive 8 hours to remain in his excellent care. Courteous and professional manner and that of his staff are what patients are expecting in a qualified dentist….Dr. Emad is just that! I myself have had extensive dental work over the years and might add a ” white nuckle” patient…can not even think of putting my dental health in another’s hands. Dr. Emad and staff are focused on attention and detail in every aspect of your dental care. We are so very fortunate that our family has this caring, understanding and professional dental office. E. Kelly Please don’t review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you’re connected in any way to the owner or employees.

Genesis C. from Chantilly, VA (Source: Yelp)


A good good dentist is hard to find but with the grace of the almighty my family hit the jackpot with Dr. Emad. I feel so bless that I found a dentist I can trust. He is kind, prompt, empathetic, courteous and professional. Dr. Emad represents in all of these categories with flying colors. He has all of the qualities you’d hope to find in any professional in the medical industry. Also, his supporting staff is very nice, polite and professional. I absolutely love Dr. Emad; He seems to genuinely take notice of all your concerns and addresses them to your utmost satisfaction. He’s such an easy person to talk to which makes the whole dental experience feel at ease; he goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable along the way. Afterward, he makes time to call you and check to see how are you feeling after a procedure. let’s be honest, who really enjoys trips to the dentist? Thanks to Dr. Emad, I can honestly say that I do.

R J. from Herndon, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Emad’s office for several years, and have always had a pleasant experience.  I have had crowns and fillings and he has always been gentle, yet quick and efficient.  Dr. Emad is very professional, gracious and courteous in his manner, and always follows up the next day with a personal call to make sure all is well!  After every appointment I always comment to my family how lucky I am to have found Dr. Emad!

Kristen L. from Clifton, VA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Emad and the staff at Nova Dental Care. My mother found Dr. Emad on a recommendation from my aunt and he has been my dentist and my sister’s for over 20 years. Not even once through university and graduate school did I ever see another dentist, I always came home to keep my appointments with Dr. Emad, and I cannot imagine entrusting the care of my teeth to someone else. Dr. Emad and his staff have never been anything less than professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating, while still maintaining the friendly atmosphere of a local family business. The office is always clean and tidy. Whenever I have had a problem, I have been able to make an appointment quickly, and if I’ve had even a minor filling, I always receive a follow-up call the next day to make sure everything is okay. I have recommended Nova Dental care to my friends and will continue to for years to come.

Patricia D. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Neal Emad has been my dentist for 25 years and my son and daughter were his patients for many years before they went away to college. Eventhough I moved to Arlington several years ago I continue to stay with his practice and visit the Vienna office. We have nothing but the highest regard for him. I have always found him warm and respectful as well as professionally trustworthy and competent. My daughter, in particular, still mentions his gentleness and patience and always has me give him her regards whenever I visit his office. After a procedure he is known to call me later in the day to find out how I’m doing. He has taken me on an emergent basis on more than one occasion and accommodated my lateness on an occasion when I was quite late. His entire office is helpful and cordial, the atmosphere is cheerful and parking is right out front.

I have been going to Dr. Emad for over twenty years. I can’t express how much I appreciate having him as a dentist. I actually live in Maryland and make the drive to see him. I am a very nervous patient and he is so calming and gentle with me. I completely trust him with all of my dental needs. I would never go anywhere else.

Laurie-Ann Preston (Source: Google)


Dr Emad was recommended to me by a friend and have been very happy with Dr Emad and his staff. They are very thorough and proactive in warning you about possible future issues. I appreciate knowing ahead of time so I can try to resolve the issue. Very friendly and nice office. I would definitely recommend NOVA Dental Care of Vienna.

John J. from Chantilly, VA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely recommend Dr Emad to anyone looking for a dentist.  Dr Emad has met all my dental needs for the last 20 years and I am completely satisfied with his work. Dr Emad works carefully – the outcome is proof of his care & proficiency.  I have never had to go back after a procedure because of pain, or even take pain killers the following day. When Dr Emad fixes something, it stays fixed!  I have never had decay next to a filling, a filling come out, a crown come off, a crown crack or any other problems of any type with Dr Emad’s work.  Dr Emad also really cares about the comfort of his patients.  I have oddly placed nerves, and they don’t numb easily. Dr Emad always takes the time & gives extra care to be sure the anesthetic is fully effective before proceeding.  At Dr Emad’s office, I get solid, reliable dentistry from a true professional, and that is what matter to me.

Katelyn G. from Northwest Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Since recently relocating to D.C., I had yet to find a dental provider to carry over my care with when an accident resulted in the chipping of my front tooth. After a recommendation from a friend, I called Dr. Emad’s office to explain my situation. They made every effort to work with my schedule in order to get me in to be seen immediately. I appreciated this sense of concern and urgency, especially since I had not been a patient of Dr. Emad’s before. He was thorough in asking me about my dental history while quickly working to evaluate and repair the damage, which is thankfully now unnoticeable! Aside from Dr. Emad’s notable skill and experience, I was incredibly impressed with his empathy and his personable yet professional demeanor. Additionally, the entire office staff was warm, welcoming, and responsive. I noticed Dr. Emad, as well as individual staff members, continuously filtering in and out of the waiting area to greet other patients, giving the office a friendly, familial feel. I respectfully disagree with the previous negative 1 star review by E.W., as I could not have had a more opposite opinion. I have worked in several areas of healthcare, ranging from a technician, to a nurse, and now in anesthesia. My work has allowed me to practice in different settings with a wide variety of practitioners. Dr. Emad is a provider who balances the skillset of being exceptionally competent and knowledgeable with invoking a sense of comfort and compassion. I felt reassured in my confidence that I was being treated by the best, and I look forward to continuing future dental care with him.

Dr. Emad and his son Dr. Marcus Emad are the best dentists I’ve ever had. They are very professional in their assessments of your dental needs, they are extremely caring and careful while treating you and they are constantly checking on your comfort level. Additionally the technicians who clean your teeth are very knowledgeable and take great care to make sure that you are not in any discomfort. Last but certainly not least, Maria the office manager goes out of her way to assist you with anything concerning scheduling, billing questions, etc. Maria has worked with Dr. Neal Emad for 25 years. That is a testimony in itself as to how great this dental office is.

Melanie Prettyman (Source: Google)


I have been seeing Dr. Emad since 1993. Yesterday I had the pleasure of also meeting and being worked on by his son, Marcus Emad. The care I have received over the past 27 years is second to NONE. Dr. Emad takes his time and makes sure the patient is comfortable and understand the work that is about to happen. Dr. Emad also did my braces when I was in high school and after braces he pulled my wisdom teeth, and even back then in 2000, he was calling home to check on me and asking my parents about my recovery. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Emad, and now with his son Marcus working beside him, I’m so glad my excellent dental care will be offered for many more years. Thank you for making every experience as painless as possible and as comfortable as you can imagine <3

I went in for what I thought was a cavity, but it turned out to be a cracked tooth. The staff & doc took care of me right away, fitted me for a crown and a set me up with a temporary crown all as part of the initial visit! They were patient, very kind and they walked me through everything step by step so I felt comfortable.

Shazia D. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


Shazia D. 2/8/2017 I usually don’t write reviews on products or providers, but Dr. Neal Emad truly deserves a recommendation of the highest order. I have been going to Dr Emad’s practice for almost five years and every time I have returned home pleased with his treatment whether it is a simple dental cleaning, a filling, or a crown placement. Not only is Dr. Emad a highly skilled dentist providing impeccable service, but he is empathetic, courteous, and a very caring professional. His passion for providing excellent customer service is reflected in his attentiveness to the patients’ needs and in perfecting his treatment until the patient is fully satisfied. Whether you are undergoing a complex or a long procedure, you can be rest assured that Dr. Emad will make you feel comfortable and make it as painless as possible. In addition, Dr Emad uses state of the art equipment; ensures prompt patient appointments; manages a well coordinated staff; and provides a well organized and esthetically pleasing office environment. This “feel good” experience motivates you to take care of not only your dental health but your overall health in general. Kudos to Dr Emad!

Rick F. from Chantilly, VA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been with Dr. Emad for almost 20 years and we are very happy with the service and care we received. Whether it’s a cleaning, filling, crown, root canal or braces, every experience has been positive. We particularly appreciate the follow-up calls that show a level of concern seldom seen these days. Thank you Nova Dental!

Z S. from Bethesda, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr Emad is our family dentist. We have been going to the practice for more than ten years and have been very happy with the quality of his work. So much so that we don’t mind driving from Maryland to Virginia to see him! Dr Emad is available when we need urgent care and is always friendly and shows genuine interest in his patient’s well-being. His staff is very friendly and helpful with handling our insurance claims, and very thorough with cleanings and examinations. We recommend his practice to those in need of a great dentist.

Gene N. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emad has provided our family’s dental care for over 25 years. That includes myself, my mother, my wife, our son, our daughter, our son-in-law and our grandchildren. He is knowledgeable, competent, caring and personable. He stays abreast of dental techniques and has respectfully counseled me in sleep apnea treatments, an affliction we share. We have recommended him to our friends without reservation and, those that followed our recommendation, agree. He is a GREAT family dentist. My wife and daughter are educated, successful, professional woman. My wife is an educator and homemaker. My daughter an author, elected school board member and homemaker. They have described Dr. Emad as a health care professional who is encouraging, deferential and respectful when including them in diagnostic and treatment decisions. In closing, I feel I must comment on an aspect of E. W.’s negative review – “Could be cultural beliefs on his part… Just saying”. Really?!!!! Fortunately, Dr. Emad neither a bigot or sexist.

Karen Akers (Source: Google)


Dr. Emad meets his patients on a personal level and he’s formed a warm relationship with each of the four members of our family (two of whom started with him when they were 4 and 5 years old). We’ve recommended him to three different families (all with daughters), and they rave about him, as well. He is thoroughly professional, endlessly kind, has the most amazing staff, and is the best dentist I’ve ever had.

Andrew Velarde (Source: Google)


Both my wife and I have been coming to Dr. Emad for several years now. I highly recommend his services. He has had to fill a few fillings for myself over the last few years and the results have been great and pain-free. I’ve always had great interactions with him and he will gladly answer any questions I have about procedures.

David B. from Bristow, VA (Source: Yelp)


We have been patients of Dr Emad at NOVA Dental Care for many years since our daughters were very young. Dr Emad has always been very  professional with the entire family. He takes the time to explain any procedure and then will answer any questions you might have. He was extremely patient with both our daughters who were very nervous about any procedure. I have appreciated the phone calls in the evening checking on us after a procedure to make sure we are doing okay. Dr Emad, Maria and the entire staff have been wonderful to deal with always making accommodations when necessary. I will and have recommended Dr Emad to all my friends when they ask if I know a good dentist!

Danette P. from Ashburn, VA (Source: Yelp)


I started seeing Dr Neal Emad approximately16 years ago after a co-worker referred me and have never been more happy with his care. I had several bad experiences with dentists and was very anxious every 6 months when I went.  And to this day, every 6 months I get very anxious, UNTIL I get in his chair and then I know he will take care of me.  I have referred many happy patients to him.  My daughter, now 18 and son, now 17 have been with him since they were 3 and he has taken very good care of them to the point he calls after a procedure or filling to make sure nothing unusual has occurred.  My girlfriend who has had a dentist for many years tired him and haven’t looked back. I trust that he gives me excellent advice and has NEVER offended me at all.  I am thankful for his service and staff .

Bruce B. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emad has been our family dentist for over 25 years and he is undoubtedly the best dentist I have ever had!   My wife and I and my children (now adults) go to him because he is friendly, polite, professional and absolutely state-of-the-art when it comes to dentistry.    He always checks up on us the night after a dental procedure to make sure there’s no pain or concerns. I would truly be lost if I had to go find another dentist.  He’s absolutely the best…I couldn’t recommend him more highly! .

We have been long time patients of Dr. Emad, and I would highly recommend him. I have had lots of fillings, crowns and a bridge, so I know a good dentist. He has always been so kind to my 3 daughters, even allowing one, 10 years ago to be his “assistant” when he was giving exams to her older sister. She got to operate “Mr Thirsty”, we thought for a long time she might be a dental hygienist! I always get in very quickly for appointments, even if I forget to make my 6 month checkup. Plus he always calls after fillings/crowns to make sure everything is okay.

Raydene B. from Clear Brook, VA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always had a fear of dentist since I was 14. I only went to a dentist when necessary. About 2 years ago my children and I became new patients of Dr. Emad and I must say I am so happy we did. Dr. Emad made us feel so comfortable. Even though my children had regular checkups I was the one who needed to help the most. My teeth were in bad shape. Gum disease, loss enamel, shifting of my teeth and the worst (yellow). Dr. Emad worked with me a my fears. Never pushing me to do more then I could handle. I hated needles so bad but he made it so easy that I barely felt it. I had 2 years worth of work on these teeth.  An now I’m so happy. He’s the best. Always caring. I remember one procedure where the air hit my teeth after I got my temp crowns off to get me permanent  placed it. The cold air hit it and I was in tears. Dr. Emad immediately  gave me some more pain medicine and wiped away my tears. Now that’s a doctor that cares. As long as he is in practice, I will be his patient. He is one in a million!!!!!
