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

Corey C. from Warehouse District, New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Sokoly’s for a bit over two years. The entire staff is absolutely amazing, super flexible with scheduling and could not be more helpful. I was motivated to write this review after Bonnie called me and is helping me figure out my insurance situation regarding some orthodontia work that Dr. Sokoly’s office isn’t even providing. She is going out of her way to help me figure out what my options are for services. It’s truly above and beyond and this is just one example of how helpful and amazing the staff is. Dr. Sokoly himself is awesome. He is friendly, efficient and super communicative. He does a great job of explaining what he’s doing and why and helping me understand options. I had to get a filling before I left to visit family for Christmas, and I got a call from him the day after treatment just calling to check-in and make sure the filling was feeling okay – I haven’t had a doctor just call me out of the blue to follow-up. Dr. Sokoly is the only dentist I recommend in DC – he and his staff are the best!

Dr. Sokoly and his staff are great! Today was my first visit and Renee was super welcoming from my first step into the office. Bonnie did my x-rays (she’s lightening fast!) and was very friendly. Melissa did an amazing job with my cleaning. I have been traumatized in the past by other hygienists (different practice) but she was very gentle and thorough. Dr. Sokoly was also great – very friendly and attentive. He answered all my questions and concerns. I will definitely be a repeat patient.

I do not know what the “new” filler was that Dr. Sokoly used 4/23/14, but it is fantastic! My filling needed repair and it was (is) located in a awkward place and could be annoying to me in my sleep. The new agent is working out in more ways than one; I no longer sense an intrusion and as a result, my tongue will leave it alone! Kudos Dr. Sokoly – lets work on another 15 years!

I went for my first visit … very nice dentist… even called the specialist that I had to go see….took his time and kept asking “Are you OK?” … I would definitely recommend..  its clear that he gets customer service … he said that he would never have any one waiting more than 10 minutes … after waiting for 90 minutes at one dentist I welcome this … you will be pleased with this dentist … yes unfortunate that he is “out of network” now … but my out of net work paid the same as in network … the admins took care of all my paper work and will send me a bill …. I didn’t pay anything at visit…. the doctor is open and accepting new patients

I am near completion of my Invisalign program to straighten my teeth, handled expertly by Dr. Sokoly and his staff. I couldn’t be more pleased! State of the art technology, wonderful treatment plan, responsive communication, reasonably priced, with great results! I highly recommend getting a free scan to see how your smile can be transformed by this highly skilled team.

Andrew S. from Washington D.C., DC (Source: Yelp)


After ten years of looking for a good dentist in DC (and failing miserably… repeatedly), I am so glad a friend recommended Dr. Sokoly’s office. Everyone from the front office staff to the hygienist to the doctor are kind, lovely, and extremely competent and professional people. They clearly understand that going to the dentist is not everyone’s favorite activity and take steps to mitigate those feelings. This is the first dentist I’ve gone to in DC where I didn’t get sleazy used car salesman vibes and they did not try to upsell me on every single product and procedure they offered. I wish I had known about this place earlier, it would have saved me a lot of pain and frustration!

Hazel L. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


What a great place to visit for your oral care! Teeth, gums, even cold sores! I am so glad that I found Dr. Sokoly and his team. I visited him after reading reviews posted on the internet, and every 5 star review was precisely what he and his team represent. I thank the reviewers. I moved to DC recently. One day, I had unusual pain on my left side jaws and gums. Dr. Sokoly’s office accepted me as his new patient and immediately made themselves available for the next day checkup. What a relief. His office was peaceful and cheerful. While waiting for the preparation of the checkup, I enjoyed watching the CNN reports right in front of the reclining chair I was sitting on. After a few X-rays and photo shots, Dr. Sokoly showed me the results on that very TV screen where I watched CNN news. I could see my damaged gums. The next was easy. Prescriptions, meticulous explanations of what to do with medicines, and the scheduling of the follow-up visit. My gums healed as per his prescription. I went back today for a follow up visit, including cleaning. Unfortunately, my condition would not allow them to work on my teeth — due to the flu, I had cold sores on my lips and below the nose. They knew exactly what to do. I got a prescription for cold sores and my next visit scheduled. Dr. Sokoly, Jackie the hygienist, and two other staff members whose name I don’t remember are all so exceptionally super!

I have been a patient of Dr. Sokoly’s (Tom) for more than 16 years and have thoroughly enjoyed every visit. He has always been thorough and inclusive in his outstanding care. Jackie is a fantastic Hygienist and works as gently as her personality. Renee and Bonnie always welcome visitors like they are family. I know that I am getting the absolute best care for my teeth with each appointment and I happily recommend Dr. Sokoly and his entire staff. They are an exceptional bunch!

Dr. Sokoly and his staff are not only professional and great at what they do but their friendly demeanor and personal service make it a pleasure to come in to the office every visit. I have been undergoing MTM to realign my teeth and have appointments every 3 weeks throughout the process. Scheduling and rescheduling is super easy. I’m never waiting past my appointment time. And,Dr. Sokoly genuinely cares about my comfort and the results as we go through this process. I highly recommend Dr. Sokoly and his team.

Mary M. from Bethesda, MD (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient for several years.  I have been thrilled with his cosmetic work.  Dr. Sokoly gave me veneers several years ago that still look amazing and have given me zero problems.  He spends a lot of time with you to make sure you get what you want, and end up with a look that is natural.  A great office staff and wonderful hygenist too.  I can’t recommend highly enough!

Heather L. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been coming to Dr. Sokoly’s office for years and we are always very happy!  Dr. Sokoly and his staff are just wonderful….we can even bring in our baby and they love to see him!  The staff is very easy to work with and they will email you for all your appointment needs, which is super convenient.

Until I started going to Dr. Sokoly I would procrastinate on making appointments and dread going to the dentist. That all changed, thanks to Dr. Sokoly and his capable team. They are professional and efficient and have a way of talking to you like a support system or resource on how to fit good habits into your routine (as opposed to my previous experience with dentists – the equivalent of my Great Aunt Ida wagging their finger at me because I didn’t floss well enough). I’m never going anywhere else again if I can help it.

This was the best dental experience I’ve had in a long time when having a this type of procedure. I’ve been in the dentists office a lot throughout my lifetime and I hate it! Lol! Dr.Sokoly was absolutely phenomenal!!! He was gentle, kept checking in on me and best of all QUiCK!!! Fast is nice… fast and great is awesome!!!! I also love the staff. They keep you informed and work with you if needed. Thank you all for the wonderful care and treatment!!!

Talented dentist, knowledgeable and skilled hygenists / techs, cutting edge technology and techniques, and beautiful modern office with a bright sunny view of DuPont Circle. Went for a regular cleaning, they identified and cavity and filled it on the spot. Also had teeth whitening done for a really fair price. My smile has never looked so great! Thank you, Dr. Sokoly and Team!

New to DC or looking for a change? This is your Dentist. No need to look any further. I have been going to Dr. Sokoly since I moved to DC in 1996. He is downtown, close to the World Bank, IMF, IFC, and K street, so it’s easy to pop in before work or during the day. It doesn’t hurt either that he is both a Hoya and a Terp! Staff is super professional and nice.

Dr. Thomas Sokoly is a gifted dental practitioner with a comforting style. I have been with him for many years. My dental work has always been a challenge from the time I grew up in N.Y.C. to all my years in Washington, D.C. and Virginia. Besides Dr. Sokoly’s’s excellent dental care, he alleviates any concerns I have. In addition, his staff is exemplary and wonderfully friendly. I delight in recommending him to family and friends because I have unreserved faith in his skill and care. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Sokoly and his exceptional staff. Sincerely, Freda Lippert Thyden.

i literally do not have the language to describe how wonderful this human and the humans that work at this office are. literally. but i carry cards to hand out to ppl i overhear that need a dentist. absolutely worth it. every single thing, completely worth it. i broke a tooth, multiple times sadly, and have been able to be squeezed in the next business day every time. every single time. additionally, when, after hours, dr sokoly assured me he’d be able to fit me in in the morning before i went to work, and then he had a personal emergency, his office called me to relay the emergency and worked with me and him via text to find an adequate time. i will never see another dentist as long as he practices.

Dr. Sokoly is a gifted dentist and his expertise is outstanding. He and his first class dental staff create a warm, non- threatening environment. It’s like visiting a friend. There is flexibility in scheduling which keeps stress at a minimum. I am more than satisfied with the precautions taken during this time of Coronavirus. Excellent precautions.

Nicholas Kirsch (Source: Google)


I needed a quick appointment after I broke a tooth and my dentist had just recently retired and they were able to fit me in the same day. The scheduler was phenomenal, quick and very easy to work with which is important to me. The appointment was excellent, Sokoly an staff were very knowledgeable and competent and communicated very clearly what they were doing and what the results and recommendations were. I couldn’t be more pleased after my first appointment.

T W. from Bethesda, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of this dental practice for several decades with both Drs. Sokoly and it is better than ever! The staff [Bonnie, Renee, and Jackie] is, to a person, friendly, competent, efficient and, in a word, great. Dr. Sokoly is highly skilled, efficient, uses the most up to date technology, and communicates all the necessary information in an easy and informative way. The overall experience puts you at ease regardless of the procedure. This is a dental practice in which the patient is clearly cared for and well treated. There are absolutely no negatives!!

Marnie K. from Washington D.C., DC (Source: Yelp)


I am very pleased with this practice: They’re current on the latest dental technology and I feel confident I’m getting expert care. I appreciate that they offer suggestions (gum specialist evaluation, whitening) without being overbearing and judgemental. And yes, while they don’t take insurance, Im grateful that they process the claim. Special props to Jackie who’s a great hygienist!

I was unsure of what expect when I scheduled a routine cleaning during a pandemic. I wondered – what precautions were being taken? would I feel safe?, etc. I did feel safe and left confident that Dr. Sokoly and his staff took every measure possible to minimize risk to their patients and themselves. For example, there’s only 1 patient in the office at a time. They text you when it’s ok to come up. The office door is locked to regulate who enters. Upon entering the lobby, your temperature is taken and, if ok, you’re instructed where to walk to reach the hygienist. The hygienist and Dr. Sokoly have full PPE and have extra measures during your teeth cleaning that minimize airborne particles. Last, patients are rotated among the various exam rooms (remember, 1 patience in the entire office at a time) so that there’s enough time to thoroughly clean and disinfect exam rooms between patients. Dr. Sokoly and his staff have always put the patients comfort and safety at the forefront of care and they demonstrated that commitment in their changes to protocol during COVID.

Dr. Sokoly and his staff are the best! The staff are always so friendly and helpful in setting up my appointments around my busy work schedule and with getting me information around my insurance coverage (thanks Bonnie!). Dr. Sokoly is extremely professional, spends time with his patients and does a thorough dental examination. The office is also very clean and updated. Would certainly recommend to family, friends and others.

Dr. Sokoly and his staff are wonderful! He’s been my dentist for nearly a decade now and I’ve brought my mom to him for extensive dental issues. Their office is very modern and nice and everyone who works there is friendly, professional and very understanding. They worked with me to find the right match when referring my mom to a periodontist and they made appointment times that made it easier for me and my sister to drive our mom there. I have moved away from the area, but Dr. Sokoly is still my dentist and I just make my appointments coincide with visits home.

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


Great Dentist, he’s to the point, smart, and his staff are great as well. They no longer accept insurance (heck I wouldn’t either if I was a Dentist or Doctor) so I’m getting a new dentist because I’d have to foot most of the bill and I want to use my employer’s insurance because I’m paying for it, ya know? Strongly recommended!

Sharon C. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Sokoly for 20+ years and now my family is part of his practice. Dr. Sokoly and his team are the best! Friendly, professional, use most modern dental practices, and conveniently located downtown. His team always clearly explains the technique or issue that is being experienced. I recommend everyone I know who is looking for a dentist to try Dr. Sokoly.

Matt G. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental experience that I’ve ever had.  That sounds like a rye comment, but here it isn’t.  The entire experience there is differentiated.  I’ve had multiple excellent visits with Jackie Farris as my hygienist, she’s gentle and effective.  Renee at the front desk is amiable and efficient.  You even get to watch little flat screen TVs from your chair during the appointments.  And Dr. Sokoly is credible, knowledgeable, and concerned.  They have spoiled me for other dentists.  I’m moving to work remotely in Philly and I’m considering keeping this as my dentist (scheduling appointments around trips to the office).  5 stars.

Mike M. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sokoly and his staff are the best I’ve ever been to.  I found him through a recommendation and had never had a Dentist in the area show be so friendly, yet professional.  Dr. Sokoly takes an interest in you as a person as well as your teeth.  The office is nice, clean and modern.  Highly recommended!

Stephanie Eshelman (Source: Google)


Dr. Sokoly and his office team are first-rate. Dr. Sokoly is an excellent dentist and a really friendly person. He makes you feel at ease immediately. I have been going to this practice for a long time; back when his father had the practice. I will continue to use it as long as I’m living in the DC area. I recommend Dr. Sokoly to anyone looking for a good dentist. He’s great.

Henry Gallagher (Source: Google)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Sokoly and team for several years now and I think they have an awesome practice. I rarely have to wait for my appointment, and after my cleaning, Dr. Sokoly comes in to quickly wrap things up. They are very friendly, great about sending text and email reminders, and even give me an option of which TV channel to watch. 5 Stars every time.

Jeff T. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Today, was my first visit with Dr. Sokoly. I now, consider him my dentist. I chipped a tooth, didn’t know what to expect. He and his whole staff made me feel comfortable. Short wait in the waiting room. No question that the dentist is important but you can tell, he picked very good support staff. If you’re looking for a dentist, he’s a very good choice.

Was referred to Dr. Sokoly by my periodontist more than a year ago. His office is clean, modern and every staff member highly professional. Dr. Sokoly and my hygienist are detail oriented and pro-active about recommending additional care (electric toothbrush, possible orthodonture) – took my care to a whole new level!

Jenifer Rider (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Sokoly is superbly skilled, uses the latest technology, is linked into a top notch referral network, and on top of that, he’s the nicest guy in the world! Apparently his staff agree; unlike other practices with high turnover, I’ve been receiving excellent care from the same cheerful staff for the 8+ years I’ve been a patient. Thank you, Sokoly Dental, for the great work you do!

I found Dr. Sokoly’s office over the holidays when I urgently needed help with a sudden toothache that ended up needing a root canal. His office was extremely accommodating at getting me into visit as soon as possible and they sent me over to an amazing doctor to get the root canal done. Dr. Sokoly and his staff are very professional, friendly, and helpful. I was excited to have found a dentist in DC but unfortunately they stopped taking Aetna in late January 2016. I would highly recommend going to Dr. Sokoly. He is an excellent dentist that takes the time to explain things and is thoughtful and cautious in his approach. Bonus is they have TVs at each station so you can focus on that if you need to!

I had a very difficult problem with a front tooth. The endodontist wanted to do one painful sounding procedure. The periodontist had a different equally painful sounding suggestion. Dr. Sokoly came up with a simple solution that created the needed structure to mount a crown on what otherwise could have been a complicated, painful and much more expensive. I recommend him highly.
