Have a fear of visiting a dentist? Or hard time finding the right dentist? Look no further and go to Merrifield Dental Associates, and you will see why I found this practice so amazing. The entire staff was extremely courteous. Any concerns I had were take care off with respect. Did not feel rushed, and the Doctor answered all my questions. And I couldn’t be more happier with the outcome.

Absolutely wonderful service! From Cindy at the front desk to Dr. Mita Davaninejad and Dr. Nima Raoufinia, every single person encountered us very friendly and welcoming! My husband is Dr. Mitra’s patient and I am seeing Dr. Nima. My husband is so grateful for the procedure Dr. Mitra performed which totally removed the sensitivity and pain from his tooth. When I visited Dr. Nima for the first time for my annual check-up, he spent time with me to discuss my teeth. Dr. Nima made the most amazing crown for me that looks like my own tooth. It is very comfortable and I’m so happy with it. I recommend this office 100% since I really felt I got quality care at this location!

Wow what a great find! Highly recommend! My daughter relocated to Maryland from California and needed to get set up with a local dentist. Dr. Raoufinia was recommended by our family dentist out here and had good reviews. We checked out several dentists in the Maryland and DC area and were very concerned about the change. Roxanne was amazing and went above and beyond answering all my questions and taking into account the time change as I helped our daughter find a dentist. Great service, great prices and awesome communication every step of the way!

I have had horrible experiences at dentists starting from age ten but these guys really restored my faith! Who knew not all dentists were sadists lol. Dr. Raoufinia and his awesome staff have always made me feel calm and welcome at his office. Calling their office has never been an issue and they’ve been happy to accommodate my busy schedule. Wonderful bedside manner, no long waits. Highly recommend!

It was my first time at Dental because I alway been scared from going to the dentist they are the best I really recommend going there they rally nice and friendly, and what ever your problem was they will fix it for you, For the first time in my life I was proud of my teeth because of them. Thank you very much for all the help ☺️☺️ It was really far for me to get there almost 1,200 miles but every miles on the way there was Worth it

Tabitha W. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


I work downtown Silver Spring and needed to find a caring dentist because I had been to a few out there and was not happy. The previous ones I had been to seemed more like “clinics” with many patients waiting to be seen. Dr Raoufinia and his staff were above any other experience I have had. They sat me down immediately, took the time to listen to my concerns and addressed them perfectly. About the office, its very modern and clean. They have big TVs in each room that they show you the xrays and pictures on them. The staff was very friendly and did everything to accommodate. The doctor seemed very genuine and spent time with me which is rare! It did not feel like he was rushing to leave the room. Dr. Raoufinia was very conservative in his treatment and did not recommend a bunch of fillings but rather wanted watch a couple of the suspicious areas. I have never had any cavities and it was refreshing to see he wanted to watch these areas rather than be aggressive. The person that cleaned my teeth was also extremely gentle and the cleaning didn’t hurt. She went over brushing and flossing too. I think if you are like me and want a quality experience, you should see them. You will not be disappointed with them! I will surely be a regular here!!

Had my first appointment with Dr. Raoufinia this past Friday.  He was very professional with great bedside manners.  Something about him was that I felt he really cared about what he does and took time with me, not common in some of my previous experiences at dental offices in silver spring area.  The staff was also friendly.  The office was very high tech and clean.  I recommend this office if you’re looking for a new dentist.

I am so glad i took a chance with a new dentist. I was looking to get veneers to fix my gap. I was googling and searching for a cosmetic dentist reading endless reviews and i’m so glad i went to his office. He explained to me all my options and which option would best work for me and I went with invisalign. I’m extremely happy with results! He’s very nice and the staff is really nice also highly recommend

Three words to describe my experience at Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry: pleasant, professional, and pain-free! Making an Appointment My first impression of Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry was the speed with which I was able to schedule an appointment. I called on a Friday and there was an opening the following Monday! Scheduling was a breeze for every subsequent appointment. Getting There The office is walking distance from the Silver Spring Metro and Sarbanes Transit Center. I parked in the municipal Cameron Street garage, but there is also metered on-street parking. The Visit I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Raoufinia performed the cleaning himself. The thorough cleaning lasted about 40 minutes and included x-rays, a physical exam, plaque and tartar removal, gritty toothpaste cleaning, and a waterpik cleaning. Each chair is surrounded by state-of-the-art equipment, including a flat screen monitor where the dentist can show you your x-rays, records, and even a live video feed of your mouth. Dr. Raoufinia has a calm and reassuring chair-side manner. During my cleaning and later appointments to fill cavities, he let me know what to expect and narrated as he went along. Staying informed helped reduce my anxiety in the chair. I also appreciate Dr. Raoufinia’s skillful use of novocain. In the past my face has been numb for 4-5 hours after a procedure, but after my last appointment with Dr. Raoufinia the numbness was gone after 2 hours.

My experience with Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry has been great. Dr. Raoufinia and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and they strike the perfect balance between being efficient but also being focused on the individual patient and taking plenty of time to explain things and answer questions. Additionally, I have had a couple of larger procedures, and the office has always been transparent with cost estimates and they have worked with my insurance to make sure I don’t overpay, which I really appreciate. I highly recommend them!

Though Dr. Raoufinia was unable to fix my problem (a needed root canal on a curvy tooth root) he referred me to a specialist, had his office call and make the appointment for me, gave advice about what to do until I saw the specialist, and was extremely kind as well as professional. I will visit him when it is time to get the crown I will need. The entire staff who dealt with me was unerringly kind, polite, and professional. My old dentist retired, but I feel I have found a new one that I can be very comfortable with.

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


I highly recommend Dr. Raoufinia and his team to anyone looking for a reliable dentist/dental team. Dr. Raoufinia is honest, caring, professional and patient. He always told me what I needed to hear and not what I wanted to hear. I have been going here for years getting necessary work done including root canals, extractions, crowns, etc. I have terrible anxiety especially when it comes to the dentist, and every single time I went to Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Raoufinia made me feel like he cared and he always checked on me when I would move my foot or ball my fist as a coping mechanism for my anxiety. All of the time and work Dr. Raoufinia and his team have invested in my dental care is truly appreciated. I have not been this confident in my smile since 2012, I literally feel like everything just goes up from here for me because I can be my natural smiley self and that to me is priceless. Thank you Dr. Raoufinia, Sandra, Maria, Danni and Roxy for your help, you all are the best and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. See you soon! 🙂

This is likely one of the last independent dentists in town, and it really makes a difference in service. The dentist does the cleanings himself, and does one of the best jobs of it I’ve ever experienced. He is also very charming and personable, and both he and the dental hygienist make sure to check in with you as the process goes along. Front desk staff is also very welcoming and efficient.

Where do I even begin? First and foremost this is the best dental office I have ever been to. Dr. Raoufinia and his staff are the most professional, friendlest, and caring people I have ever met as far as dental offices. Today was my 2nd visit (my 1st visit was amazing and my teeth were thoroughly cleaned) and I had my top left wisdom tooth extracted and it was 100% painless. Dr. Raoufinia was gentle and careful with my mouth. I was so nervous being as though this was my first extraction at 28 yrs old. Nonetheless, he made my visit pleasant, comfortable, and pain free. Definitely will tell my friends and family about his practice. He is very informative and listens to everything you tell him him, Great doctor!

I went for a cleaning today and I got to say I was quite impressed at the level of professionalism in that office. The doctor and his staff were just amazing! I explained everything in great detail, made me feel comfortable and didn’t recommend to do any work that is unnecessary like other dentist in the metropolitan area.

JR (Source: Zocdoc)


I absolutely love this dentist facility! I’ve had a root canal and dental cleaning all within a 2 months span, they were super clean, and there was never a long wait. Dr. Raoufinia is all about pain free dental work. I was so nervous about my procedure he walked me through every step and reassured me the entire time. He was also very reasonable with pricing since specially since I’m a student, I’m also singer myself, and I require only the best to work on my instrument. I highly recommend this dentistry facility if you want to keep a great healthy smile!

5 GOLDEN STARS to Dr.Nima ,Dr.Davanine and their Friendly stuff. What A GIFT !!!!! What a great people and what a great service ! I have been struggling to find a good dentist who can help me after the problem I had. I literally felt desperate when the whole bridge between two teeth I did with another dentist fell from my mouth. I made an appointment to go to this office after a friend of mine recommended it for me. First , when I entered something I noticed different is how much clean the office is. SUPER clean and nice. The administrator welcomed me with great pleasure. They considered me as a member of a family before a client. They even work on Saturdays ! It is Amazing. I had a little water bottle from their fridge It was the right time( Lovely Service )When I got to see the dentist , He was very friendly with me .I loved the way he asked me to know about my problem. Soooo Nice. So they took X-rays for me ,all parts of my mouth. You will not get this with another dentist . Slowly he found out the problem which I didn’t expect by giving me some tests in my teeth .I was like WOW. I wasted my time not coming here . I was impressed by the way the dentist explained everything to me and he had his helper do that to me one more time ( with great patience and she even answered every single question I asked her ) All the staff are all smiley and considerate about their patients. They will make you feel at ease.They made me happy that I can finally fix my bridge at a generous discount and I am 100% Satisfied that I will do all my future teeth problems with him. Something we don’t get all the time anywhere is this If you are looking for a CLEAN Place with a GREAT Service at an AFFORDABLE price Yayyy ! then this is it. It is a miracle. It is not Easy to find like this one. It is the best DENTIST I have ever seen. I will say thank you so much for considering my situation. Dr Nima is very professional, knowledgeable and an honest person. I appreciate your kindness and especially your help. I would definitely recommend Dr Nima and Dr. Davanine to YOU because you deserve a better Smile TOO.

Mia J. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I love it here. Dr. Raoufina and his staff are nice and personable. The atmosphere they have created there is very comforting, and we all know the dentist isn’t the easiest trip to take. They always lay out your options and will work out a dental work plan that best suits you. You can tell that they care and just want you to have the best smile you can possibly have

Annie T. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


I finally found the best dentist in the world and stopped searching since I met Dr. Nima Raoufinia. I had been looking for the great dentist in the area for decade since my best dentist (Dr.Owaise) retired decade ago. I don’t ask much and only searched for these qualities in my dentist: @ Gentle, no pain, caring @ No stacking customers (don’t pile up clients in the waiting room or in the room then run around to do the work on other client leave me waiting) @ Quality work with painless charges. @ Affordable and accountable I found all these qualities in Dr. Raoufinia !!! I went to do the crown after the root canal and Dr. Roufinia did the fantastic job. He is the best dentist in town and his front desk staffs are amazing. They are very friendly, very kind and treat you with respect. Dr. Roufinia is very knowledgeable and very professional. He puts you at ease and let you know every step of the procedure. He also told you up front what he is charging and willing to work with you on financial issue. Love love love this Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry. I already spread the word about him through out my Thai community. There are hundred of dental offices in that area but his practice stands out and I am a repeat customer for sure.

Dr. NIMA IS AN EXCELLENT DENTIST, I have never in my 64 years of living experienced such wonderful Care, Compassion, and Gentleness, not only from Dr. Nima but also from his office assistants, Ms. Mildred, Ms. Julie and Maria. The office atmosphere is great, always very nice and clean and very pleasant. If half of the Medical Doctors and their Staff In America had half the Compassion and Care for their patients as Dr. Nima and his Staff does, I believe there would be a lot less sick people in this world. I could go on and on but I’m going to end my review with these words. whatever dental problems you, your family, or friends, may be having, ” GO TO THE BEST”, Dr. Nima, at Silver Springs Cosmetic Dentistry in Downtown Silver Springs, Md.” I Thank God For Guiding Me To Dr. Nima and Silver Springs Cosmetic Dentistry.”

Chris B. from Rockville, MD (Source: Yelp)


Went back in for my filling appointment.  I love this place (I usually hate going to the dentist)!  The shot was completely pain free and Dr. R was quick in putting in the fillings.  Even though he was fast with fixing my teeth, I didn’t feel rushed.  As the previous reviewer said, he explained everything he was doing.  I still recommend Dr. R and his office.

Robin F. (Source: Zocdoc)


I had a very positive experience. I am a person who suffers from serious dental anxiety, so going to the dentist is a bit of a struggle for me. I was handled with compassion and care. My hygienist was Danny and she was very patient and kind. She checked in with me throughout my service to make sure I was okay. I also saw Dr. Nima Raoufinia, he was very gentle and has a calming demeanor. I would highly recommend this office. Everyone was really knowledgeable, thorough and they did an exceptional job with communicating next steps, recommendations and over all suggestions to improve your oral health.

Samia B. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


“I had some complex dental work like fillings, root canals, crowns etc. and I had discussed my situation with friend of mine who is also a dentist. She recommended me to consider Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry where I would find the best solution for all of my detailed dental issues and so I did. The level of service and care I received at the clinic surpassed the other various clinics in DMV area I had visited before. Dr. Nima’s high level of skill in the field of dentistry is what gave my broken down teeth a rejuvenating look. This is the first time I am giving review for any dentist ever because he deserves it and want to share my experience so others can also get benefit. His staff Julie and Mildred are so caring and treat patients like family members. I strongly recommend everyone to consider Silver Spring Cosmetic Dentistry for all their dental work.”

Roy S. from Takoma Park, MD (Source: Yelp)


This office continues to be the best dentist experience my wife and I have ever had. The hygienists are gentle, efficient, and the front desk is courteous as well. The dentist is personable, warm, and always makes us feel like family. No insurance price for cleaning, xrays, teeth pictures, and a dentist’s consult for only $99!!! Highly recommend to anyone in the area looking for dental care.

Lesli C. from Baltimore, MD (Source: Yelp)


I started visiting Dr. Nima Raoufinia’s office about 4 or 5 years ago. In that time, while the office has gotten more stylish (kudos to your decorator), the quality remains the same. Dr. Raoufinia is very thorough, knowledgeable, professional AND highly personable. The staff – love Roxy 🙂 – is also very efficient and friendly. On my latest visit Saji was my hygienist and she answered my questions and followed up on pricing when she wasn’t sure. Essential for out-of-pocket patients. I moved over an hour away nearly a year ago but wouldn’t consider switching to someone else. If you want competent, professional, friendly and efficient dental services I highly recommend SSCD.

London F. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Let me first start by saying I am terrified of the dentist, due to a few experiences I had when I was child. I will dodge the dentist any chance I can get. About a month ago I experienced a toothache from hell overnight, by the following morning I went to work suffering and crying. I searched all over the Washington, DC area and no office could take me on a late Friday afternoon. The earliest appointment I could find was the following Wednesday until I stumbled across Silver Spring Cosmetic Dental. I talked to the receptionist basically in tears, she scheduled me the same day (Friday) @ 5:00 p.m. I work downtown Silver Spring so this was perfect for me. The moment I walked into Dr. Raoufinia’s office I felt warm and at ease. My old dentist would give me a pill to ease and relax me. I asked the receptionist for something similar, she said they didn’t have anything on site but moving forward they will see if they can accommodate me 🙂 I filled out my paperwork and within 5 minutes the Dental assistant called me to the back. She knew I was nervous and tried her best to calm me as much as possible. I don’t think I completely calmed down until I met Dr. Raoufinia, boy is he warm. He could tell I was tense and made me feel at ease. I received TWO extractions and I felt nothing but pressure and heard nothing but Dr. Raufinia’s calm voice checking on me every 1-2 minutes throughout the process. Due to not getting as much dental work as I should’ve over the years, I also need two root canals which Dr. Raoufinia will perform. Dr. Raufinia’s bedside manner, personality and experience cannot be found in any other dentist I’ve met in my entire life. I will go to him for any procedure and will also go to him routinely to get my dental up to par. I really didn’t want to make this review because I wanted to be selfish and keep him to myself, but he’s so amazing I have to share him with the world! Thank you Dr. Raoufinia, you and your staff is amazing!

The practice is very clean, in a great location. They have friendly and professional staff, the dentist is very friendly, listens and gives good feedback/information. I was attended promptly, especially considering it was my initial visit. The equipment is state of the art. The overall experience was great!

Leslie R. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


Such great service at this dental office. I haven’t been to the dentist in 2 years but when I came into this office they helped me with everything I asked for. The staff is very friendly, office is clean and overall a great environment for all patients! Will definitely return to this office for my regular cleanings!

I had a really good experience on my first visit to this practice. Everyone was friendly. I barely had to wait to be seen, and I was able to get and reschedule a Saturday appointment very easily. The dentist took his time and explained everything to me. They were very gentle and I really had a great experience.

Dr. Nima is an excellent dentist, I have never in my 64 years of living experienced such wonderful care compassion, and gentleness, not only from his office assistants, Mr. Mildred, Ms. Julie and Maria. The office atmosphere is great, always, very pleasant, if half of the medical doctors and their staff in America and half the compassion and love for their patients as Dr. Nima and his staff does I believe there would be a lot less sick people in this world. I could go on and on but I am going to end
