All of the staff at Rad Orthodontics are great. They’re all suuuuper friendly and helpful. I had my braces on for a year and 3 months and my WHOLE treatment went by without an issue and I love my smile now! From the time you walk in the beautiful waiting area until the time you leave, you will feel welcomed and anything you need the staff will help you with.

My experience with Rad Orthodontics was amazing!! I got my braces off today!! September 18,2018. the environment is very welcoming, organized and on time with everything. Braces helped me in many ways. I never liked smiling and I was very insecure about the way my teeth looked before I started my braces process. Now I am very pleased with the results although my next step is retainers, I feel very confident with my self! 🙂 appearance is everything and I am glad I found out about this place before my teeth got any worse. I would definitely recommend this company to others.

At Rad Orthodontics I received the best care. The doctors and office staff members are knowledgeable, kind, and provide an atmosphere where I was completely at ease. This has been a great experience!!

Sydney R. from Minneapolis, MN (Source: Yelp)


I had a very pleasant visit as a new patient.  I only needed a quick wire fixed and was able to get in and out in under 20 minutes even though the office was very busy.  Being the day before Thanksgiving, there were lots of patients there since everybody was off of school/work but the everything still seemed to run very smoothly and efficiently.  Overall the staff was very personable and helpful.  The office was very clean and the check-in system was easy to use.  I would definitely go back for future orthodontist appointments.

Rad Orthodontics is the best place to ever exist. It has been a couple of years since I have been here, but every time I look at my smile I think about all the amazing providers that were able to give me my perfect smile! The staff is BEYOND amazing and Dr.Rad is just superb! I loved every single visit that I had and I can’t think of a better place than this. 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU WANT THE BEST SERVICE AND TREATMENT! YOU WONT REGRET IT!

Just finished my 2.5 year Invisalign treatment with Rad Orthodontics and it’s such a bittersweet feeling – on one end, I’m very happy with my smile and on the other, I’m pretty sad that I don’t need to come back due to their excellent work! All of the staff are WONDERFUL and GREAT! Everyone has a great attitude and they also call/remember you by your first name, which makes it such a casual/laid back setting. The ladies at the front desk are very courteous and nice as well as the staff helping you in the back. Dr. Mehdy and Dr. Dave are both awesome! They are very down to earth and I have nothing but great things to say about their professionalism. They will tell you straight up whether or not additional treatment is necessary or even recommended, which I highly appreciate (it lets you know that they care more about your smile and not about your money). I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who needs orthodontal treatments to come here first. They have 5/5 stars on Yelp, Google, FB, etc. for a reason!

I am a college student from out of state and had a great experience with Rad! Everyone who worked there was so welcoming and helpful. I was a new patient who didn’t have a scheduled appointment, and they still fit me in without a wait.  Also, the doctors knew what they were doing and were very professional and understanding. I HIGHLY recommend going here!

The Best Dentistry I Have Ever Been Too. I Love it here. I have recommended so many of my friends and they love it here. My teeth has transformed and everyone can see it. I smile more often now then I did before thanks to Dr. Rad. Don’t waste your time anywhere else this is the place to be. Everyone in the office is so nice and friendly. The receptionist are the first people you see and they welcome you in with open arms.

Rad Orthodontics has been one of the best decisions of my life. From their friendly and efficient staff, to the kind and genuine nature of the doctors, this place hits the mark on all counts. Dr. Dave has given me the best smile that I used to only dream about in the past, and has in turn changed my life. I highly recommend Rad Orthodontics, and would not change my experience with them for the world!

Kristi J. from Hyattsville, MD (Source: Yelp)


This place has to be the best orthodontist in the country. I consider myself a very picky mother when shopping around for medical professionals, and I have had a few negative experiences and impressions with other dentists and orthodontists, but I was extremely happy with Rad Orthodontics. We always went to the Greenbelt/College Park location, and I can honestly say that we had ZERO problems. Everything was amazingly well organized and run, the care was outstanding, and everyone seemed genuinely friendly. The options were presented in a detailed fashion, and we were able to ask a lot of questions and choose the option we wanted (traditional railroad tracks in my son’s case). The timing went slightly better than expected. The outcome fixed a number of issues and looks great. A few times when my son had pain or problems on the weekends, we were able to speak to the doctor himself.  Even the waiting area is a very positive, clean, pleasant environment — coffee, tea, magazines and a very efficient check-in system. If every office could run like this one, we’d all be so much better off.

Monika G. from Glenn Dale, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have had an excellent experience at this office and already recommended Rad2 to others.  The staff is outstanding – which was important to me.  They are always on time with appointments – no waiting.  The office is wonderfully hi-tech.  Drs. Rad and Rad – what can I say but awesome!!  Monika G.

We relocated from another state to Maryland. After doing research, we settled on Rad. They took over care of my daughter’s teeth and didn’t stop until they got it right. She smiled at me yesterday and I have no words. The doctors were wonderful to work with and so were the staff. Thank you everyone for the beauty butterfly!

Renee M. from Hyattsville, MD (Source: Yelp)


Rad Orthodontics has changed my life! When I came to them in 2011 I had no self esteem and no confidence all because of my smile. I was so embarrassed to open my mouth. I went through 2 years of treatment and my life has completely changed, all thanks to the doctors and staff at Rad Orthodontics. I will be forever grateful to everyone there who changed my life forever!

Renee L. from Greenbelt, MD (Source: Yelp)


I don’t normally write reviews, but this place is awesome. I was referred to them by my regular dentist.  I had a great experience from the very first visit.  When I have an appointment here they are always on time. I am never left waiting around. Check-ins are so efficient and the staff are always pleasant. Dr. David has a very comforting “bedside manner”.  And did I say I love the location! Only 10-15 minutes away from where I live! Love it!

David T. from Cheltenham, MD (Source: Yelp)


I normally don’t write reviews, however my experience here was so awesome I have no choice. First let’s start with the office staff. They are so friendly and helpful they will make you feel like you have known them for many years. Then you have the dental assistants in the back very professional and passionate about there work and just like the office staff they are very friendly. Last but not least you have Dave and his brother when I tell you these guys know there stuff I mean it. I’ve research a lot before choosing this place and man did I pick the right place. These guys are so honest about the results you can or can’t achieve and they will do whatever it takes to make sure you leave with a smile on your face. Special Thx to Brenda, Julia, Dora and Dr Dave and Matt.

Rad Orthodontist is the Best! The doctors are knowledgeable and have a great relationship with their patients! I wish we had found them sooner! We love coming to every appoint to see them! The staff is amazing and on top of things. Extremely Nice! Clean and up to date office with the latest technology. I give rad 10 stars ⭐️. They are the AMAZING!

Tamarcus P. from District Heights, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have recently completed my treatment and I must say that it was better than I expected. I always hear the horror stories about braces and so forth but Dr Rad and team made it a very comforting environment that I didn’t mind returning to. At the end of the day, i am glad that i was able to achieve the final result but will not have the pleasure of seeing the #1 orthodontist (and staff) in the Maryland area. I applaud this team!! Front Desk staff were superb! I have never seen such a friendly bunch of individuals!

Dr. Mehdy Rad and his staff are compassionate and committed to creating the ideal smile. One thing that stood out is Dr. Rad explained the entire process, and set expectations. I’m a huge fan of his approach, and thoroughly trust his judgement. Thank you ‘Rad Orthodontics’ for providing exceptional orthodontic care in a relaxing environment. #topnotch

I am so overwhelmed with joy!!! I cried and cried. I am so thankful for a team like @radortho they brought me in and made me feel so comfortable. They walked me through my entire process and never left my side. They made me smile when I felt down and they kept the energy high! I’m so blessed to have done this amazing process with them. They will forever be family ♥️ @_mhalli_ wasn’t there for the taking of my braces off but she was amazing throughout my entire process

Caroline S. from Greenbelt, MD (Source: Yelp)


There are not enough positive and kind words to describe Rad Orthodontics. I began my treatment at 21 years old and finished at 23. My case was challenging especially since I was an adult, but the process went smoothly without any problems. It is incredible to see the transformation of my smile from beginning to end. Dr. Mehdy and David Rad are exceptional orthodontists. I am thrilled with my results and I love my new smile. I’m so grateful for the work Dr. Rad put into help me achieve that. I strongly recommend Rad Orthodontics to anyone of all ages looking to correct their smile. The staff is so warm and friendly and made me feel comfortable. The office is clean and well organized and I never had to wait for my appointments. They are very thorough and explain everything to you. I honestly looked forward to my visits their. Dr. Medhy, Dr. David and their staff are phenomenal!!! Thank you!!

Yusuf H. from Jefferson Park, Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


Coming to Rad Orthodontics has been the most worthwhile personal investment in my health. Both Drs. Rad and their staff have been so friendly and helpful through my Invisalign journey, that I would recommend them to anyone without any hesitation. They really do take the time to answer my questions and are extremely flexible when it comes to timelines for treatment. Their projections were accurate and I achieved better results than I could have imagined. Basically, if you follow their regimen and instructions you will have the desired outcome on schedule. The staff there is very accommodating and they make the experience as painless and as pleasant as can be. They were all very helpful in answering my questions and even gave some good tips and tricks for cleaning and maintaining my Invisalign aligners. Overall, if I had to do it all over again I would come back to Rad Orthodontics!

They are the greatest ever! Everyone is so nice and cheerful and genuinely friendly. They’re all so knowledgeable and willing to teach. They never mind when I ask a million questions. They remember me every time I come in and I only go every few months. If you can go there for your orthodontic work, do it! All top of all that, my teeth look amazing now!! 15/10 would recommend.

Excellent service. Dr. Rad knows every of his customer and give you the time of day despite him having a lot of clients. They take care of your smile and encourage you in your journey. They always tell you what they are doing during your appointment so that you know what is happening. I could see progress just after 3 months and every time I go back I notice my smile gets better and better which helped me gained much more confidence in myself.

K S S. from Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


I just came back from a quick appointment for my son.  Dr. Rad is a perfectionist – he isn’t satisfied with anything less than perfect.   He made an adjustment – a little tweak on something that I couldn’t see until he pointed it out.  It’s refreshing to have a dentist who actually cares about what is best for the patient (his jaw alignment) rather than the dollars he can charge.  If you are looking for an orthodontist who will create a treatment that is truly customized to you, then don’t go anywhere else.  You can really trust Rad Orthodontics with your teeth.  I do.

Holly T. from Greenbelt, MD (Source: Yelp)


My son loves coming here. They are very knowledgeable, are always willing to answer any questions I have as a parent, and explain each step to me throughout the process. They also offer a payment plan which always helps with such a big expense as this. On his first visit, they gave my son a backpack full of all kinds of dental supplies and an electric toothbrush which I thought was cool. They also have a rewards program so he can earn points on each visit and exchange them for gift cards. Needless to say, he looks forward to his appointments because he loves getting the points lol. I am so glad our regular dentist referred us here. I can’t say enough nice things!

Shahara R. from Greenbelt, MD (Source: Yelp)


Best dental service I have ever gotten! Seriously oke of the nicest staffs Ive seen! Everyone in the office is sooo incredibly nice and it always brings a smile on my face whenever I see them. Normally I wouldnt like going to dentists but I really get excited when I come to Dr.Rads office! It feels very comfortable when I am over there, almost as if I were home! The office has a cool fish tank and video games which i personally love! I have been coming to Dr.Rad for about 5 1/2 years and I have never had any complaints about it! 🙂

My family is from Colorado and are on a vacation in the DC area and my 14 year old’s wire came out of the brackets. We googled orthodontists in College Park and found Rad. We called and they were able to get him in the very next morning and didn’t charge us for the repair. We were greatly blessed by the friendly and helpful staff and we can now enjoy the rest of our vacation because of the excellent work of the orthodontist. We highly recommend Rad Orthodontics!

Rad Orthodontics was an amazing experience for me and I got the best results I could’ve asked for. The staff was so nice and helpful with anything I needed help on and Dr.Rad was super funny always there to help brighten the mood. It’s pretty sad my time here is almost over, because I love it there but Know I have the best smile ever now. Thank You soo much❤️

Could not be happier with Rad Orthodontics!!! My son’s teeth look incredible and my daughter’s will soon too! My son started his Invisalign treatment in June 2018 and finished June 2019. My daughter started in January 2019, looking forward to beautiful results. Great, friendly, knowledgeable staff at every turn. Thank you Rad Orthodontics!

Shymee D. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Rad Orthodontics has been superior. You cannot as for a better staff then Rad Orthodontic . These people know you by your first name. It is just like family and that they have been knowing you for ever. The assistance and the dentists are top notch, perfectionist, honest, and have great bed side manners. They take time with your treatments, I feel that I am in great hands with these people. I never have to wait. As soon as I come in and sit down they are calling me back. The payment plan was reasonable and they work with you. I have never seen these people have a bad day and take it out on the clients. They are always so professional. The office, staff, have neat clean appearances. They have state of the art equipment, which means the uncomfortable procedures does not take as long and they have the equipment to perfect your smith. I can not wait to see the end result. I am sure it going to look great. I have no complaints about Rad Orthodontics. I recommend Rad Orthodontics to the people in congress and the white house That is just how good they are.. Shymee R. Davis 02/15/2015

So when I started my ortho treatment I was working at a dental office that did ortho but I wanted to come to dr. Rad because even from the consultation visit everyone was so nice. Even if they really had no idea who the hell u were you would never know it everyone from the front to the back of the office would address you by your name felt like you were family. They always see you on time even of your a little early u will be seen early I never had to wait there. The treatment is quick I had my braces on for 16 months and the payment plans are great I had no dental insurance and my payments were 150.00 a month with a deposit of 800.00 which is not bad at all. I send all my patients to rad orthodontics when they ask who did my braces I always tell them to go on the website and check them out

My daughters started treatment 3 years ago and know they are in second phase this journey have been difficult but Dr.Rad and his team have been amazing! We have seeing great results. We move to Frederick and I was looking for other orthodontics near home, but my daughters didn’t wanted another because they really like Dr.Rad , so no matter the distance we preferred going to the Gaithersburg location, because we know that we are in the hands of the best! Also another thing that we really like is that Dr. Rad always gives you options for your treatment, options that avoid extractions and surgery. We just love Dr. Rad and his team they have become like family to us.

Simply the best. Hands down. Dr. Rad and his staff are genuine and kind – every time I go in there I am greeted with a happy hello and personal attention. I can tell by the time Dr. Rad spends with me and the attention he gives my children when they are in his care, that he truly cares about how well their teeth work and how good they look. Questions are encouraged and he listens and answers them thoroughly. I am so glad I chose Rad Orthodontics. You should too – you won’t be disappointed.

Julie D. from Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


Both my children are patients at Rad Orthodontics and it is truly an impressive practice. The staff could not be warmer or more helpful. They go out of their way to remember every patient and their family and make each patient feel important and cared for. My son was not the easiest patient to work with and both Dr. Rads as well as their talented staff were incredibly patient and flexible with him. The Drs. kept me informed on every step of the of the treatment and took time to talk with me at each appointment to let me know progress. My daughter is still in the middle of her treatment but my son is finished and his teeth are beautiful. Its amazing that its the same smile. Perfect!

Our dentist referred us to RAD Orthodontics for my daughter’s treatment and I couldn’t be happier. The team is highly skilled, professional and the staff is extremely personable. After 20 years, I decided to correct issues that occurred due to not wearing my retainer. My daughter and I are now pleased with our smiles! Thank you Drs. Mehdy and David Rad! We would recommend them to anyone! 5 ⭐️
