Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

We have been coming to Dr. O and her team for several years, and they are a wonderful, convenient full-service office. Where they really excel is with children- I’ve taken both of my kids here as toddlers and it is all around an enjoyable experience (I’m serious!) Dr. O takes time to explain and show them all the tools, and respects the kiddos while getting the job done. She truly has a gift!

Smile HQ is the best dentist experience out there. I’ve been going here for 3 years now and every time I walk in they make me feel like we’re all family. I always request Dr. O cause she’s an absolute angel, and I finally started a flossing routine just to make her proud! I truly can’t recommend this dentistry more. As long as I’m in this area, I will always be a patient at Smile HQ!

Everyone was kind. I was given the option to fill out my paperwork prior to my appointment, but I didn’t. When I arrived I was given the option to do so from their iPad or my phone. I used the iPad. It was quick and easy. I was seen immedately after filling out my paperwork. She was able to identify what was wrong after over a year of seeing other dentists. She also provided me with additional information on properly taking care of my teeth. She referred me to two possible doctors so that I can complete my procedure.

Dr. Oguntimein was really great. She explained everything she was doing and helped come up with a good care plan that addresses all the concerns that I had. The staff was really helpful and everything was explained thoroughly. It was a welcome change after some increasingly negative experiences with my previous dentist.

SmileHQ goes above and beyond to make dreaded dentist visit as painless and enjoyable as possible. After recently moving to DC, I was pleased to find their office which offers flexible scheduling hours, extremely friendly and professional staff, accommodation for most insurance plans, coverage of a wide array of regular dentist and orthodontic procedures, and more. I appreciate their commitment to patients and staff which is demonstrated through their clean/updated office environment, excellent administrative policies and procedures, and frequent communication. Huge plus for the TVs in each room with Netflix – I really enjoy watching a calming nature doc or something fun to relax during each visit.

Very nice office – clean and beautifully designed. Easy parking on a Saturday morning. The whole staff was upbeat, kind, and communicated clearly. It was also helpful that I could text my insurance card. That made my check-in process super quick. The whole process was very efficient.

The new (renovated) praxis is amazing! light, new equipment, new colleagues and stuff – but I was happy to meet several familiar faces. It would be great if the new ones would learn to talk with the patient. Just because I had x-rays done before doesn’t mean I appreciate that someone pushes something in my mouth without telling me what they are doing … However, both the ‘student’ and the woman advising him seem to be new and I’m sure they will learn under the guidance of Dr. Oguntemein

I am someone who gets very anxious at the dentist (not for any good reason, just overly concerned about my teeth), and the pandemic has made things so much worse. Luckily, the friendly people at SmileHQ helped me feel comfortable by being both amiable and assertive regarding the proper precautions for staying safe from Covid as well as being able to professionally handle my dental concerns. Dr. O and the team were very friendly and helpful and were able to guide me through the entire appointment with professional care. I was very pleased with my treatment, and look forward to my next visit.

Easy process for making appointment. Accommodating front office with experienced, knowledgeable and most importantly, friendly team members (or as they would say family). Spotless office and care taken to abide by COVID formalities. Dr Oguntimein is an amazing doctor. She is extremely detailed, thoughtful and experienced. I trust this team (family of professionals) with any dental related services.

Hello, I had an emergency because my tooth broke on Saturday. I was able to schedule and see Dr. Oguntimein on Monday. It was a tooth close to the front and my nephew was getting married on Saturday. She pulled the tooth which had a crown on it. Dr. O has a lot of work to do on that tooth before it is fully installed, but was able to send my imprint to get me a temporary tooth on Tuesday. I will be ready with many smiles to take pictures at the wedding.

My visit was great. Dr. O is absolutely awesome. She and her staff show patients utmost respect and glad to see smiles and humor in the office. Dr. O was patient with me, talked me thru everything she would do. Literally held my hand at times when she could tell that I was getting squeamish. I highly recommend her practice.

Convenient location! Beautiful, modern office! Amazing staff who are knowledgeable and friendly! They didn’t make me feel bad about my looooong absence from a dentist and reassured me that my teeth are indeed ok! They also explained cost so there is no confusion on payment. am actually looking forward to coming back. Thank you so much!!!

Tina K. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Oguntimein was friendly and attentive, so my treatment (replacing a missing filling) was painfree, professional and quick. I enjoyed a nice conversation with her while waiting for the anesthetic to kick in. The staff is very friendly too. I would highle recommend dr. Oguntimein, especially to people who are not comfortable with dental procedures. I felt so relaxed, I almost dozed off during the procedure. Thank you dr. Oguntmein!

Shakera T. (Source: Zocdoc)


If I could give 6 stars I would! Dr. Oguntimein and her staff are consummate professionals; I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dentist chair in my life. I explained my “phobia” of the dentist and they took it from there, doing everything to reassure me and make me feel okay without awkwardness or judgment. Oh and the Jazz Pandora, good stuff, not cheesy elevator either-how classy is that?!?

Tracey F. (Source: Zocdoc)


I had not been to the dentist in a long time and I need alot of dental work. Dr. Oguntimein explained everything to me and she was very good at making me feel comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone. She has such a warm spirit. She is the epitome of what a dentist should be!!!!

Angela F. (Source: Zocdoc)


I was so overjoyed and very pleased with Dr. Oguntimein and her staff. I was a little nervous because I wasn’t sure what was going to take place, but she made me feel comfortable and at ease. I had to get a root canal and was completely amazed at the fact that there was no pain during the procedure and no post pain afterwards. She will be my dentist for life. I thank her and her staff for a job well done and their exceptional customer service,.

The only reason I wasn’t seen right away is because I was late and this was my first visit. Let me just say that the staff and Dr. Oguntimein were awesome!! They were the three C’s capable, caring and curteous. I have finally found the dentist that I will keep from this day forward.

This place whips. All the ladies on staff are so nice, I never had such a pleasant appointment-forms-check in experience. The facility is nice, clean, and you don’t need to wait around for long. The dentist was so efficient and I barely felt a thing. The hygienist was so good I stg I did not choke on saliva ONCE and that’s a first. Payment was easy with no surprises. Only good dentist office in DC imo

SmileHQ is the best! We recently moved to DC and they have been wonderful in providing dental services for our entire family. Our daughter is 2.5 yrs old and has had a great experience each time she’s visited and looks forward to going back. My mother also switched to SmileHQ after a bad experience with another dentist and she loves SmileHQ. Dr. Oguntimein, Ciren and team are so professional, thorough in their care and welcoming! Also you can communicate with them via text which is super convenient for me. I highly recommend SmileHQ if you are looking for a dentist in the area.

Dr. O was very friendly and kind and most importantly- gentle! I have sensitive teeth and am always super anxious about seeing the dentist but the whole experience was pain-free which was wonderful! The receptionist and the girl who did my x-rays were also super friendly and pleasant.

Marquita B. (Source: Zocdoc)


This is my first of many visits here. There was emergency situation that caused me to wait hour and half from my original scheduled time. The average person would be upset but things happen. The ladies in the office place were very apologetic about situation and that someone will get with me shorty. I had a issue with my dental insurance and one of ladies worked relentlessly to figure out who my carrier was and what coverage I had. Once in the chair, Dr. O took care of me. She fully explained what I needed to get done and explained my financial coverage from the insurance company. I’ve never had a doctor break down the financial aspect. The ladies treated me as family and wanted to make sure I was taken care of. Thank you Dr. O and your amazing team.

Dr. “O” (as she introduced herself) and her entire staff were extremely polite, pleasant and professional. The bedside manner of the dental hygienist was welcoming yet professional. We dialogued as if we were old friends. I can appreciate honest professionals who are well acquainted with their areas of focus. It is very difficult to establish trusting relationships in today’s society. Dentists, barbers, mechanics, handymen etc. are extremely difficult to come by. I think that my family and I can put a check by dentist now. Thanks.

My family has received great care for many years at this dental office. All of the staff have been courteous, warm, and welcoming. The dentist and dental assistants have been great with my kids and have helped them to have a positive relationship with the dental visits. We have been patients for a long time now and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Also… they seem to have taken all precautions to keep patients and the staff safe during COVID which is greatly appreciated.

SmileHQ makes me love coming to the dentist!!!!! The staff is very friendly and the office is always clean. Dr.Josephine and Dr. B both know there ish. I have never had a dentist actually give me great tips on keeping my mouth clean and healthy!!!!!!!! I’ve only had 3 visits with this dentist but I will definitely be a for life patient. I wish that I could give SmileHQ more than 5 stars. They are just BOMB!!!!

Kerrion W. (Source: Zocdoc)


The staff is always very professional, warm and friendly. Doctor O., is amazing as always. When we have our talks, you can tell that she is really invested in my health and wellbeing. She treats me like family. I’m happy to have the Ultimate Dental Care DC practice, take care of my family’s dental needs. -K

Benjamin W. (Source: Zocdoc)


I was impressed by the professional manner of the staff–I felt very comfortable with the dentists poking around in my mouth, which is impressive given my anxiety about the dentist. Wait time was unfortunate, but I would rather be processed slowly than rushed through by shoddy staff. Strongly recommend.

Keith B. (Source: Zocdoc)


She truly cares about her patients. She takes the time to make sure they are comfortable and relaxed and she truly tries to build a relationship with you to better understand your characteristics and personality….I am so GLAD I chose her during my search through my job insurance list….

Nwabuogo O. (Source: Zocdoc)


She is very professional, patient and gentle to her clients. Her disposition inspires great confidence that I don’t have to worry about her decision. No one has handled my teeth better. That’s why we decided that she should be our family dentist. Dr Oguntimein’s personality is a wonderful therapy because she and her staff keeps you relaxed and smiling on every visit. Nothing to worry about.

Great experience from walking in the door until I left. Great signage & environment made you comfortable know that they cared about our safety & well-being. Front desk young lady was super nice & such a great energy, techs were great & hygienist was attentive, friendly & did a great job. I’d recommend this office for app your dental needs.

Flava EZ (Source: Google)


I did not know what to expect, but I was very impressed upon walking through the door with the office and the staff, who were all courteous and professional. Clean well lit space with modern equipment. My appointment started on time and no long forms to fill out as it was all done in advance. I am so glad to have found this place.

This dentist is the greatest! She is attentive, spends time explaining everything and understands patients that are scared to death of dentists, don’t want any pain and don’t want to see dentists ever. She doesn’t scold or make any judgments (unlike some dentists that start admonishing you because you’re not flossing every day). I recommend her 100%.

Lauren S. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Oguntimein is a very knowledgeable practitioner with the utmost concern for her patients’ health. She advises me about potential problems before they become major issues – which is always best! Additionally, her team members are intelligent and very competent in their jobs. My cleanings are always thorough, any work that I have done is completed efficiently, and I never have to wait longer than 5 minutes for my appointment. Dr. Oguntimein and her team are a treasure and I would (and have) recommended them to people in the DC area searching for good dental care! 

Virginia Krista H. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Oguntimein and her staff were excellent! All of them were so friendly and had really valuable information to share about my dental health. I highly recommend seeing her if you live in DC since her office is about a mile north of the Columbia Heights metro! The only thing I’d say is that the parking lot by the office was crowded so I parked on the street nearby.

I’m bringing our whole family to this dentist now – the staff are warm and courteous and service is usually prompt. Previous dentist (especially for the kids) we’ve often waited over an hour even with an appointment. My 9 year old had a cavity and was done with his whole filling procedure in less than 45 minutes from his appointment time. The dentist was very kind, explaining to him what needed to be done and he was very comfortable – they even gave him headphones to watch a movie while the procedure was happening. Plus they have just renovated their office beautifully.

Was highly impressed – one of the best dentists i have ever seen. Dr Oguntimien and her all of her staff had fantastic bedside manner, kept me informed of what was happening all the time and did all they could to minimise pain and discomfort – and genuinely cared for me well being – going to the dentist is not one of the most pleasant things we need to do, but Dr Oguntimien and her staff made it as stress and pain free as possible – and the follow up call that evening just to check on how i was, was amazing service.
