I have been a patient of Oakton Family Dentistry for over fifteen years, after seeing a variety of dentists. There is simply no equal to this practice anywhere in the DC area, they are fantastic! So many reasons why, here are my top three: 1) the dentists are talented and 100% committed to making recommendations in your best interest (not to drive profits), 2) The hygienists are top notch and spend the time needed to do cleanings right, 3) the equipment is constantly upgraded and state of the art (heated massage chairs, mouth cancer screening lights, intelligent office software, you name it). During these COVID times, the practice follows strict protocols to keep everyone safe, even staggering when you walk in or out of the office with signals. I need a good dentist to keep my teeth healthy and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else! Really exceptional provider.

Oakton Family Dentistry staff are always hospitable and comforting no matter what type of visit. There is always a solution for any concern. The office is also so nice, clean, and have TVs for you to stay entertained. No long wait times. And most importantly, painless and issue-free results for all procedures I’ve had. Never been disappointed in the 20 years I’ve been a patient.

Minhaj A. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


I am grateful to have been receiving high quality professional care from Oakton Family Dentistry for the last five years. The whole team, (whether it is Christine at the Front Desk, or Meghan the Dental Hygienist, or Dr. Elhady himself) have remained consistent in their commitment to providing an excellent experience and also keeping up with the new technologies. The whole premises is beautiful, their equipment is state of the art, and also Dr. Elhady is eager to explain the procedures and advances that are currently occurring in dentistry. As an example, I went for a routine cleaning and Meghan (Dental Hygienist) performed a thorough cleaning with targeted advice on how I can keep improving my dental health. I was encouraged to use the water pik, the most suitable string floss in combination with other flossing techniques. There is no way to fake this level of dedication. These people love what they do and they are good at it. Five Stars to the team!

What an awesome experience! I have been scared to death to go to the dentist…especially being an adult and doing some true damage to my teeth when I was a teen! So it had been awhile since I had gone for a dentist appointment. I was recommended to Dr. Tamer Elhady and thought I’d give it a shot,it was about time I take care of my teeth. Although I was a little nervous they would tell me my teeth are falling out (my biggest fear-Thanks Coca Cola!) I was greeted by staff and they already knew who I was! Greeted me by my first name and it made me feel a little more relaxed…Christina came out and introduced herself to me,showed me around the office ( which was very high tech to me and over the top beautiful and clean!-and cute christmas decorations too!) I quickly apologized for my teeth being so bad and to my surprise Christina walked me thru everything I needed to do to get my teeth in better shape..and they really weren’t THAT bad! I dreaded getting my teeth cleaned…but Christina walked me thru it too and put numbing topical on my gums and she cleaned my teeth so gently and thoroughly I was in shock! I never remembered the dentist office like this! My teeth felt awesome! Christina made me feel so at home, we chatted about our kids and I really felt like,hey I found my dentist office and taking care of my teeth with some guidance from the professionals…I think I can do this. Adulthood! They are def. professionals, they gave me a welcome coffee cup which I am already using! Dr. Elhady came in and talked to me about my concerns, my long term goals with my teeth and what I need to do to take care of my pearly whites….They did discover I have one cavity..which I believe is pretty good since Its been years….and the best part is I can’t wait to go back and get it fixed. Totally comfortable environment,welcoming,beautiful and thoughtful & personable staff! 🙂 Thanks for such a great experience Oakton Family Dentistry….I can finally say I am not afraid of the dentists office anymore,thanks to you guys!

This dental practice makes the dreaded cleanings an other visits so much more bearable. The staff (hygienists, doctors, assistants and front desk) are super nice, very personable and very professional. They will go out of their way to make things comfortable for you and to book your appointment at a time that is convenient. The doctors explain the processes thoroughly and always take the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. I’m a patient for life.

I was in town visiting the parents when I experienced what I thought was an abscess. My mom recommended Dr Elrayah at Oakton Family Dentistry. Right away I was impressed. Sparkling state of the art facilities with ample parking. The staff were really amazing and there was no “upsell”. Very quick, attentive and extremely kind. Highly recommended.

Excellent dental care ! I’ve been going to this practice for over 20 years. all my family and friends go here, too ! The dentists and staff are Professional and thoughtful. They put your comfort first; offering heated chairs, blankets, sunglasses, music and ceiling videos of trivia questions for distraction. I also feel very safe here due to all the disinfecting and barriers in place.

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


I was recommended by a friend to see Dr. Elhady for my dental needs.  He is an exceptional dentist.  From the time I walked into the office and meeting the front staff to the assistants, everyone here is extremely good at what they do and caring.  I felt at ease.  Dr. Elhady explained everything to me in detail throughout my treatment and highly recommend his office to my family and friends.  Best dental office in Oakton!!!

Wj T. from Chantilly, VA (Source: Yelp)


This is the most professional dental office I have ever been to. The doctors take the time to make sure you understand the procedure and give you options for treatment. The staff is outstanding always making sure you always receive outstanding customer service. I highly recommend this office to any dental patient

Lauren Preaskorn (Source: Google)


I always get great service here and they go out of their way to make me feel comfortable wtith everything be it a regular check up or filling a cavity. They also do a fantastic job of working with my schedule and always get me in for appointments quickly and efficiently. I would 100% recomend Oakton Family Dentistry to anyone looking for a great practice!

Rachel G. from Rockville, MD (Source: Yelp)


They are open and have excellent covid safety practices (masks, temp checks, social distancing, hand sanitizer, super clean office)** I have severe dental phobia and have needed extensive work due to my avoidance. When I walked into Oakton I hadn’t been to the dentist in 10 yrs. immediately, the staff was kind. They offered to let me use nitrous oxide for my cleaning. They had a chair warmer, massage chair, tv overhead. And I never felt judged for my fears or like I was silly for using nitrous for a cleaning. Dr. Elrayah can prescribe oral sedation and she did for step one of my journey to fix my smile- a deep cavity filling. I don’t remember a second. Literally left my house and woke up the next day, one cavity less and none the wiser. She is so gentle and fun and helpful and on my non sedated visits has always made me feel reassured. No one ever makes me feel less than for my fears nor do they ever try to encourage me to push through the pain or go another second or any nonsense like I have encountered at other dentists. Just compassion, care, and great dentistry!

Sabri H. from Clifton, VA (Source: Yelp)


Great practice for the whole family.  We see Dr Elhady for everything from routine care to emergencies and he and his practice are always available, responsive, careful, and gentle with all of us.  He always gives us multiple options for treatment, especially with our children’s issues.  The whole staff is friendly and pleasant to work with.

Robin L. from Ashburn, VA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place! I travel from Ashburn Virginia and it is well worth the trip:) The staff is so friendly and willing to work with you on any situation. Christina is an awesome and gentle dental technician/hygienist. She is very thorough and explains what she is doing every step of the way. Dr. Elhady is also very pleasant and seems truly concerned and sincere in helping with any dental needs that you may have… definitely not a rush job here.  Thumbs up!!

Great experience.. Dr. Elhady was amazing.. He knew what the problem was and fixed my tooth with no pain whatsoever.. Angie was great as well. Felt welcomed and right at home.. Taking my whole family there.

Erin S. from Falls Church, VA (Source: Yelp)


Oakton Family Dentistry is phenomenal.  Everyone in the office, from the front desk, to the hygienists, to the dentists themselves, are friendly, helpful, professional and understanding.  I have been going to Dr. Elhady for years, and he is absolutely top-notch.  He takes the time to explain procedures and answer any questions I have.  I actually ENJOY going to the dentist, because Oakton Family Dentistry makes me feel like a valued patient.  I can’t imagine ever leaving this practice!

Have been going here for 5 years now. Prior to this we hopped around a lot and didn’t find one we could trust. This is the only dentist in the area we trust to give sound advise and not simply do dental work for no reason. The new office is great and comfortable the staff is friendly and kind. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a dentist they can trust.

Matthew Kucinich (Source: Facebook)


I really enjoy the new office! Great amenities to make each visit a breeze. Great staff and excellent visits every time I need my teeth cleaned. I have never had a bad experience and definitely recommend Oakton Family Dentistry to anyone who is looking for a great practice for their whole family. Our little ones love coming too!

I wish I could rate higher than 5 stars!!! This dentist office is absolutely amazing!!!! I felt NO PAIN. They treated me like a QUEEN! No joke, I felt like I was at a spa. Plus a HANDWRITTEN thank you note after the visit was the icing on the cake!! I have had dentists and doctors tell me to stop screaming when in pain because I actually scared their patients away. I have a VERY low pain threshold. When I was in the chair I could see my hands shaking. There were three people in the room while I was in the chair. I was offered nitrous oxide, sunglasses, massaging chair, blanket, etc. I didn’t even feel the needle go into my infected tooth area. I live in Alexandria, Va and went there as part of their Warrior Day event. They help veterans on this day for free. However I plan on going back to them even with the hour long drive. Also going to recommend them to all my family and friends.

Craig Scimeca is my normal dentist. I love him. He is so sensitive to your needs and just a great dentist. Alas he was not there today. Last night I placed an emergency call for a terrible toothache. They had me come at 7am to assess it (I had said I could make it thru the night…little did I know what a horrible night it would be). Anyhow Dr Elhady and his asst Sam saw me 1st pop. While he could not do the needed root canal right then, he did inject me with painkiller to alleviate my suffering (I was teary-eyed and vomiting). And they worked me in at 8:30. They fixed me up spectacularly. I cannot overpraise this practice. Sam is so patient oriented…she knows what is going on in your life and is sensitive to your need for a blanket, a tissue, whatever. And they are bent on making you as comfortable as possible as quickly as possible. They make you feel like friends and certainly like valued clients.

Francisco B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist is never a treat, but Dr. Elhady and his staff definitely make it as enjoyable as possible. Everyone in the office is genuinely welcoming, professional, and extremely attentive. They make you feel very comfortable and at ease from the minute you walk in the door. By far this has been the best experience I have ever had going to the dentist. Thank you Dr. Elhady and Staff!

I recently had to have some old fillings replaced. I was impressed by how painless and easy this process has become – and I didn’t even take advantage of all the possible comforts they offer! I have always gotten great care at Oakton Family Dentistry – my family has been coming here for over 20 years. They are courteous, professional and caring, showing attention to every detail of a visit down to the exit and payment process. I can happily say that fears I gained growing up have been erased. You will be in great hands here!

I had a fantastic first experience with Oakton Family Dentistry. All of the clerical staff welcomed me with a smile and a great attitude. I was introduced to Katie, a hygienist on the team. Katie was very personable and welcoming. She was careful yet precise in her work and did a great job. Dr. Elhady was a pleasure to speak with and laid out a clear and concise plan for my short-term dental health goals. The patient accommodations exceeded any expectations I had and even include automatic massaging chairs. Oakton Family Dentistry has earned a long-term customer in me.

Janine P. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here since moving to Vienna. I first came after a long hiatus in dental care, and Dr. Scimeca worked out a schedule for me to get back into good dental health. I have been a grateful patient ever since, through different procedures to restore and maintain my teeth. When my daughter needed dental care, she also became a patient. When she had a dental emergency on a weekend outside of normal hours, Dr. Scimeca was able to refer her to a trusted surgeon who could handle the procedure needed right away. I have always been impressed with Dr. Scimeca and Dr. Elhady. They are friendly, use state of the art techniques and equipment, and have a friendly, well-trained staff. I give Oakton Dentistry the highest rating I can. My 30+ years as a patient with Dr. Scimeca and Dr. Elhady have given me the opportunity to experience their excellent capabilities and those of their support staff. Their office is always cheerful with seasonal decorations, and I am confident that whatever the reason for the visit, I will come away in a better condition than I started with.

Zi M. from College Park, MD (Source: Yelp)


It’s my first time but I’m giving a 5-star review for the Oakton Family Dentistry! The hygienist Afshan did a fantastic job on cleaning my teeth. Dr. Elhady thoroughly broke down every detail about my oral health and gave helpful and valuable suggestions. Thrilled to discover a dentistry I can trust!

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


I have never been to a dental office that I actually enjoyed spending time at until now! All the doctors are simply amazing and knowledgeable. It’s so refreshing to find an office where the doctors take time for their patients. They explained everything in a way that I could understand and broke down everything for me. The front desk staff was welcoming beyond reason and everyone I met was willing to help at the drop of a hat. But I have to say that the most refreshing thing about Oakton Family is that when you call you talk to a real person and get helped right away. You just can’t find that anymore! Highly recommend!!!!

Staff is always super pleasant and polite with patients and try to develop a relationship with each one. They are super clear about what you are doing well on and what they can work with you on to get your teeth to where you want them to be. I have been going for several years now and couldn’t be happier with my experience. They also upgraded and moved their office last year to an extremely high standard with the latest equipment. Can’t recommend them enough.

Best dental office in town!!! All of the doctors in the office take their time with you and make sure you are aware of your dental needs. The hygienists are so warm and friendly they make you feel like family. It’s great service from the minute you walk in to the minute you walk out. The front desk team makes you feel so welcomed and happy you’re there. I love their message Chairs and warm blankets. I recommend this office to EVERYONE!!

Dr Elhady is a truly excellent dentist. Whether doing a crown or my recent fixing of my 3 front teeth. On this last, he did truly EXCEPTIONAL work, redoing old bonding to 2 my new whiter 2 front teeth and fixing on the tooth next to it, which stuck out some on the side. Dentist usually said I needed braces to fix the one that stuck out but it wasn’t big enough to ever bother me and I don’t believe in braces when no longer young, as your teeth seem to go back into former shape easily, per a friend of mine who did braces in her 50’s. But Dr Elhady fixed that odd tooth so it looks PERFECT without any need for braces (!) by shaving, bonding and fixing the corners to square off with my other teeth. He could see how to fix it beautifully whereas I could not. He truly has the vision of a great cosmetic dentist. He is skilled, patient in answering questions, and comforting in his manner. He is worth of your trust. My kudos to all of the staff, as well. They are exceptionally responsive to the client’s needs. Indeed they go out of the way to help you. Also, as for dental hygienists Stacy Mangiacina I have ever had in over 60+ years. Her eye to hand coordination is so exceptional, she just doesn’t hit the gums when she uses her tools and so have the least pain and bleeding I have ever had. A lovely person and again, exceptionally skilled. Many thanks, Dr Elhady, Stacy and staff!!!!! Robin B

If you are that middle aged scaredy cat who has avoided dentistry for decades, fear no more! This is the practice where you will receive comfort, compassion, and the best care with the most up to date techniques and equipment. Dr. Elhady has brought my husband and I, as well as a dear friend back into the habit of smiling confidently and joyously. The staff are marvelously kind, gentle, and skilled. We are so thrilled to be back on track with proper dental care!

Always an amazing experience and Oakton Family! They always take this mama of three at the same time to get us in and out! The kids love to talk their ears off while getting those pearly whites taken care of. Even had a great experience when my 5 year old needed a emergency tooth extraction all with my newborn baby in tow. Couldn’t ask for a better family dentist!

Michael Brownen (Source: Google)


I had the best experience at Oakton Family! I don’t know how I’ve never been here before. I was recently a new patient and the level of care that my hygienist Katie gave me was outstanding. She took the time to explain what she was doing before Dr. Elrayah came to do my exam. Both were just amazing. Allie was so kind to schedule my appointment when best convenient for me. The office is so clean and the staff are so welcoming. Highly recommend!

Carolina C. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


As a child, I had two extremely bad experiences with my dentist and my orthodontist. After getting my braces off I went to my dentist maybe once more and I vowed never to go back. FIVE years later (after not seeing a dentist) my dad talked me into going to his practice, Oakton Family Dentistry. I have panic attacks every so often and I was so scared to go get checked out. I sat in the chair shaking waiting to get seen with my dad by my side. After meeting with Dr. Tamer Elhady and dental hygienist, Megan they made me feel SO comfortable and were so patient with me. My mom accompanied me as I had a three hour procedure of a deep cleaning. Dr. Elhady and Megan walked me through the whole thing. After maybe one more appointment with my mom or dad there I began to go alone (I’m almost 30). That is how safe they made me feel. As soon you walk in, you can feel the tight knit family they have at Oakton Family Dentistry. The whole staff is outstandingly friendly and it helps that they always have a smile on their faces. I highly recommend this practice if you’re looking to switch dentist or even if it’s your first time. I have already recommended a couple of my friends and they had nothing but excellent feed back. I guarantee you will have a positive experience as well!
