This is a wonderful office! I hate going to the dentist, but these guys are all extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. They really care about their patients and their teeth. The dentist really takes his time to get to know you and plan out the best plan to get your teeth back on track. It’s a small, but clean and modern office The receptionist, hygienists, and dentists are great and make you feel very comfortable.

Very good experiences with this office! I went for a cleaning then made another appointment for a consultation to get my retainer re-fitted and both appointments were very efficient. Dr Hae Lim Ji was so nice and very knowledgeable. I felt like she explained things better than I’ve ever experienced at other dentist offices which I appreciated. I don’t dread going to this dentist!!

The staff and doctors here are always so friendly. For every procedure they make sure they walk you through what’s happening as well as the pricing. These are also the best cleanings I’ve gotten anywhere! The dental hygienist is so gentle yet effective. My boyfriend and I both go to this office and we’re so happy with them. In terms of covid they screen all patients with a symptoms screening and then temperature and heart rate monitor. They also do a good job of spreading patients out – during covid I haven’t been in the office with more than 1 other patient.

I’ve been going to this place for the past three years and today was my last appointment. They’ve been my favorite dentists by far and I will miss them when I move. The office is clean and beautifully decorated. They are very responsive to online appointment requests and will email you to confirm and text you a reminder too. While they usually run on time, they were about half an hour behind today. I was told their hygienist wasn’t feeling well and the dentist was doing all the cleaning himself. The exams are quite painless and gentle. You get a cute little toothbrush kit at the end. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

I have never been really fond of going to dentists due to some experiences but Smile Designer wiped all those bad experiences away! From the moment you walk in and out, they treat you like family. My dental treatment plan was created to fit extremely well with my dental benefits so that I would have little to no out-of-pocket expenses. Every one on staff is amazing and this practice is gem!

I’ve only ever had basic cleanings here, but they’ve always done a great job, never made me wait, and are completely lovely (front desk, hygenist, and dentist are all very friendly). Plus, I love the little toothbrush travel pouch they give you– mini toothpaste costs AT LEAST $1.00 at CVS so I count that a total dentistry win.

Dr. Ji was so good – very sensitive to my dental history, needs, and pain points. This was the first cleaning I’ve ever had where I wasn’t in pain. She is super attentive, empathetic, and understanding. She didn’t push anything on me for the $$, but actually advised based on my health and wellbeing.

A great Dental experience with Smile Designer. Great energy and engagement with the staff. Prompt, thorough discussions about the services. The best dental group I have been to and I wish I would have found them sooner. Love the atmosphere and the care they give to each patient. I will always come here

I had my first visit today 9/26/12. I chose this dentist, because it was/is so convienent for me. When I first walked in, I was immediately blown away by the warm/professional greeting from the receptionist, x-ray technician, dentist, and dental hygienist. They were all very friendly and professional. One thing I look for when I visit any dentist or doctor’s office is the cleanliness of it. I give them 20 stars! They were gentle, very caring and extrememly understanding to my hectic schedule. I had a deep cleaning and will need to go back for extractions and fill-ins. To show just how much I enjoyed, yes.. Enjoyed my experience with this office, I immediately called friends/family that are interested in finding a new dentist to tell them about my encounter. I have found a dentist that I feel comfortable with and that I can be open and honest with. Great Job Smile Designer! See you all on Friday!

I have been to Smile Designer for several different items. My first experience was with a tooth that was in need of a crown. I had an early evening appointment that was just to prep my tooth for a crown. I was in a lot of pain prior to the appointment and as work got underway it became apparent that a root canal was going to be a must. I assumed that I would have to make another appointment and come back. To my surprise the dentist offered to stay and take care of everything right away. The dentist, assistant and receptionist all stayed until almost 10 PM so that I wouldn’t have to go home in pain. I was so appreciative! They were all so nice about it and never made me feel that I was inconveniencing them. I haven’t had any pain or trouble with the new crown. All of the other standard work I have had done (cleaning, fillings etc) have been great too.

Smile Designer – The Arlington VA Dental Office – has a great team filled with caring, and friendly experts. Not only are they phenomenal at the work they have done for me but they treat everyone like family. I have had nothing but great experiences during my visits. Indrian, the office manager truly understands everyone and their situations. She puts a smile on my face every time I see her 🙂 I can’t praise the staff and doctors enough!! I can’t imagine going anywhere else in the Arlington Area. I truly recommend Smile Designer.

I arrived at Smile Designer a few minutes early (after parking at the front door) and was greeted promptly and pleasantly. I was ushered in for my appointment (cleaning & exam) and was out within 50 minutes of my arrival. The young lady who did my cleaning was very pleasant and informative of every step of the work she was doing! No discomfort at all! A very pleasant experience!

I love this dental office. I came here for roughly a year after they were giving out business cards by the Rosslyn metro during one of the Rosslyn BID events. I went here for my regular cleanings as well as for some rough fillings that had to be done. I also had a free orthodontic consultation done, where the doctor was efficient and clear at explaining how messed up my teeth were, and what work needed to be done. The doctors and techs were very professional, friendly, and welcoming. They always stopped to make sure I understood the forms and documents, and I never felt rushed. It was also a plus that it was close to my work and residence, so I could go in for quick appointments during my lunch break. I definitely recommend this office!

Pretty good experience here. Came in a couple of weeks ago for a cleanup and checkup. The cleanup went relatively smoothly, I waited about 5 mins, filled out my forms and was on the chair. Cleaning was quick, efficient, and pretty gentle. She informed me I wasn’t flossing correctly, and showed me how. She also recommended a new toothpaste for my sensitive teeth and I have to say, I have already started to feel the difference already. Overall, great experience, comfortable and upscale environment.

I started coming to Smile Designer over a year ago when I moved to the area and am so glad I found this place! The office managers, hygienists, and dentists are wonderful and provide great care to their patients. When I needed some major dental work last year, they were thoughtful about making sure I knew everything about the procedure and understood exactly how much money I’d be charged out of pocket after applying my insurance. Additionally, their practice is very modern and they seem to use the latest procedures and equipment so I always feel comfortable. I just scheduled my next cleaning and will be coming here as long as I’m in the area!!

SmileDesigner is one of the best dental practices I’ve ever been to! The front desk staff is incredibly helpful. They communicated with my insurance company before I set up my consultation, and the entire process was a breeze. At my initial consultation, they performed a cleaning and advised me on additional work I had to complete. I had a wisdom tooth removed and fillings replaced. They walked me through the bill, and set up my appointment for the next week. The dentist who performed my procedure was very kind and helpful, and explained what she was doing as she moved along. The extraction was painless, and so were the filling replacements. Everyone in this practice is highly professional. I recommend this business over its competitors!

I have never been to a dentist office where they wanted to make sure you fully understand everything that was going on as much as this office did. I can’t express how happy and satisfied I am after my visit. From the actual cleaning, consultation on a treatment plan, to even a consultation on insurance coverage; I give this office a full five stars and my highest recommendation.

Amazing staff all throughout the office, from the receptionist to the hygienists and the doctors! And I know because I had to work with many staff members, having had an implant (which meant many different procedures). They always took the time to explain everything that was going on (with my dental care, my insurance payments process, and other services I was interested in). Couldn’t recommend them more 🙂

Kathryn P. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Smile Designer for about 2 and half years. The office is always clean and organized and the staff is always friendly. Easy to make appointments online and the office uses text, email, and phone to remind of you appointments, make them, or change them, which makes it super easy if you are always on the run like me! would definitely recommend!

Overall great experience. Dr. Ji went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and welcomed. She was very thorough in her explanation of my dental health and was quick and easy with treatment. I left the office feeling well taken care of. Five stars.

From the receptionist to the hygienist to Dr. Hamalian, everyone at Smile Designer is patient, friendly and kind. I never felt rushed and the doctor and hygienist answered every tiny question I had. The cleaning was the least painful I’ve ever had (and I hadn’t gone for three years!) and I’ve never experienced their technique before. Even the receptionist, Kelsey, helped me through several insurance problems and explained everything to me in detail – she helped me throughout the week to make sure I was covered! I can’t recommend them enough. I actually look forward to going again. My teeth feel great!

Smile Designer is comprised of a great team of friendly and knowledgeable staff that is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your visit is pleasant. My family has received care from Smile Designer since we moved to the DC area several years ago, and I’m proud to say that the practice gets better each year. It’s very obvious that they are making customer service is their #1 focus. Keep up the great work!

Amazing service! First off, they took me in with a 2 day notice to do a full cleaning, exam, and filling assessment. Secondly, Olivia, the receptionist was extremely friendly and explained the entire ins and outs of the insurance payment, as well as what would happen throughout the visit– I’ve never once received that at any doctor’s office anywhere. Third, the dentists and hygienists were extremely friendly, prompt, and efficient. What an amazing experience! I would give it 10 stars if I could.

I was referred to this office by a DC government colleague and I must say that I’m glad I was. The office upholds superb sanitation standards. The staff are extremely welcoming and respectful, creating a very comfortable environment for customers. I like how staff walked me through my procedure, ensuring that I was fully aware of everything and comfortable. I am highly satisfied with Smile Designer here in Arlington and would undoubtedly and eagerly recommend services to my network.
