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

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


I woke up Thursday early morning, Feb 7th, 2019 and realized one of my front teeth had chipped and had fallen off. I called Dr. Terry’s office and left a message. The staff called me back and scheduled an appointment for noon. By afternoon that problem was attended to and a follow up session was set up. I was really impressed by Dr. Terry and his staff.

This is only the second time I’ve come to Dr. Terry’s (once for a cleaning and once to get a retainer made) and both times have been wonderful. Today, Ila (sp?) was the name of the dental hygienist who prepped the retainer molds before Dr. Terry came in. She was very professional and friendly. Like many people, I get nervous about going to the dentist, but she made me feel very comfortable. She even took me to the alley to show me a mural while we were waiting for Dr. Terry because I told her I love murals. I can’t wait to come back for my next appointment (never thought I’d say that about a dentist)! Highly recommend this practice.

Kofi H. from Southeast Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The staff was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. From the moment I walked in, the receptionist was welcoming and got me set up as a new patient. I really appreciated the care and detail the hygienist had when doing my cleaning. Afterwards Dr. Terry came in and provided me with detailed information about my dental health and steps to take to preserve my teeth. This was the absolute best dental visit I have ever had and am now a lifelong patient.

Love love love this Dentist office!! Everyone is so nice! You feel like you’re not in DC haha! You also feel like you’ve known everyone in the office for ages, because they treat you like family. They are sensitive to your needs and concerns and they care about your financial well-being too. I have recommended them to all of my friends. I look forward to going back. If a dentist office can make you feel like that??….you’ve found the best one!

Sharon L. from Southeast Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I was recently scheduled for cleaning and was dreading the pain that I have experienced with previous procedures.  Once I arrived for my appointment Cheryl the Hygienist assured me that I would not experience any pain and I would  be able to go back to work.  Cheryl was amazing!  The equipment used was something I had never had the opportunity to experience and there was no pain.  It took less than 1 hour and I was able to return work!  If you are looking for a Dentist and Hygienist please visit The DC Dentist.  All of the staff are wonderful and very professional!  Thank you Cheryl!!!

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


When I moved to Us (I am Italian), one of my bigger concern was to find a Dentist as I have alway HATED going to the Dentist, because of very bad experiences. Until I met Dr Terry and all his staff. I am so grateful to have Dr Terry (and his staff) in my life. You can feel their dedication to excellence in every aspect and their prompt courteous care. Dr Terry and his staff are always smiling and welcoming, and treated me with grace and kindness, taking the time to answer all my questions. When all this is combined with holistic and eco- dentistry I am not surprised he’s been voted best Dentist in Dc. Latest and greatest thing: I walk out happier and smiling more than when I walked in!

A wonderful experience! I can see why they’ve been named Washington City Paper’s “Best Dentist” in D.C. multiple years in a row, including 2020! The front desk receptionists are very sweet and funny and Dr. Victor and the entire staff are also very kind and funny. Their eco-friendly and holistic approach to dentistry is refreshing, and I love that their commitment to the environment even includes much of the infrastructure and interiors of the office being made of recycled materials. Truly a great place, and I’m so happy to have them as my dentist office. Also, they play Beyonce and Boyz II Men in the office, so really it’s the raddest and best place to make sure your teeth are great!

I have been Dr. Victor’s patient for more than five years, for routine oral maintenance and emergency problems. In all instances I have enjoyed gentle, effective and thorough attention. This is absolutely the best dental care experience I have ever had. Dr. Victor and his staff have always been caring, supportive and meticulous. State-of the-Art, ecologically friendly equipment and amenities enhance the diagnostic capabilities and performance. It’s the best!! What a wonderful way to leave the dentist – happy, with a smile and no discomfort! I recommend this practice without reservation.

Catherine H. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I had an excellent experience with The DC Dentist. I went in to get a cleaning and a filling. I felt like I was very well cared for and that the whole office wanted to make sure I was comfortable. Before they did any work they sat down with me to discuss the cost and my payment options. After I had the initial work done I had some follow up questions and really felt like Dr. Victor and the rest of the team listened to my concerns and did everything necessary to ensure I was satisfied with the work that was done. I could not recommend them more highly.

Terrence S. from Northwest Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The DC Dentist is amazing. Fantastic care and first rate service. The whole staff is super friendly staff and Dr. Victor is a real gem. The receptionist was wonderful about setting up coordinated appointments for my girlfriend and I. The facilities are really nice and the environment is extremely comfortable. The staff and community here makes it feel more like I am hanging out in my living room with family and friends than at the dentist. The staff is not only genuinely friendly and professional, the warm community feel of the office makes each visit a truly fantastic experience. Second to none. I have never had such a caring, thoughtful and positive medical experience. As long as I live within 2,000 miles of DC I will always come here. (my girlfriend now uses DC Dentist too and she lives on the west coast!)

Excellent customer service in the DC Dentist office!! Everyone spoke to me and seemed cheerful and friendly. Just what we need when going to a dental appointment, which is by itself stressful enough. Their smiles and greetings made me feel welcome and relaxed. Valerie Papaya Mann

Mercedes W. from Mercedes W. Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I am NOT fond of any dentist but Dr. Victor and the staff at The DC Dentist may make me change my mind. I will be completely honest in saying that this is not an inexpensive practice. They are holistic and offer alternative methods/treatments (like lavender oil on the wrists to calm anxiety) that many insurances won’t cover at the average rate. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for a dentist but also advise to save your money or look into FSA benefits to ease the burden when it comes to payment.

Bill M. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I never usually write reviews but my experiences at the DC Dentist has been exceptional. I feel like I’m visiting friends instead of going to the dentist. No pain. No waiting. No hassle. And the service is outstanding. I met Dr. Victor at the Green Fest and have been his patient twice since. In addition to knowing the latest on dentistry, Dr. Victor is kind, warm, and a pleasure to be around. Who would of ever thought going to the dentist would be so pleasant??? Coincidentally, my mother who lives 3000 miles away told me she is going to the dentist today. The difference is mother is dreading the experience. I will continue to visit this practice, and I highly recommend others visit Dr. Terry Victor at the DC Dentist.

Cate H. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Victor at the Pathways health expo. I recently moved the area and experience tremendous anxiety when visiting the dentist. I had not found an area dentist and decided to give Dr. Victor’s practice a try. I cannot praise Dr. Victor or his associates enough! Everyone at the Washington DC Dentist is extremely knowledgable, professional, and accommodating for anyone with dental anxieties. Furthermore, if you appreciate the value of holistic treatments and environmental sustainability, you will not find a better practice in the district. Dr. Victor has taken great measures (from the materials used in the physical office, to the machines used for x-rays, installing a state-of-the-art mercury removal system for water used in filling removal, all the way down to the soap used in the bathroom and aromatherapy during treatments) to reduce waste, ensure environmental sustainability, and provide you with the most comfortable, holistic dental experience possible. I feel very proud to be a patient at this practice and look forward to continuing to support Dr. Victor’s vision and efforts.

I have been a patient of Dr. Victor’s for 4 years now and I have always had wonderful experiences with him and all of his staff! I very highly recommend this practice, and will continue to be a patient there despite moving to Waldorf.

Christina has such a warm presence and always provides stellar customer service! She is extremely knowledgeable and a huge asset to her team and patients. She was pivotal for helping me navigate issues with my insurance, which resulted in me reaping the full benefits. I am so grateful for her support because it allowed me to get the necessary services to support my overall health and wellness.

Simply put, my 6 year old son loves the DC Dentist. I thought that would be impossible but the last two times I’ve taken him, when we get back to the car he asks me, “Dad, when can we come back?” I can’t believe it. It didn’t start off that way, but as he has gotten familiar with the wonderful dentists, hygienists and administrators, he is excited to go. You would think he was going to a friend’s house. So I appreciate EVERYONE at the DC Dentist, because I like going there too and bringing my son with me makes feel happy that he is having a better experience than I could ever imagine. It feels like a good decision each time I come back and that’s all you can ask. Thank you to each person I have met at the DC Dentist! Outstanding genuine warmth and communication that changed the way I view going to the dentist!

I had the best first-time experience as a patient who suffered many years of dental problems. I have never had a partial/crown made that fit so perfectly and not needing adjustment. I call Dr. Victor a magician. Not only is Dr. Victor extremely personable and easy to speak with but I love the way he interacts with his staff – like they are family and that means a lot to me. Moreover, Dr. Victor’s chair side manner is just great!!! I highly recommend him.

Kurt H. from Bowie, MD (Source: Yelp)


The DC dentist has a very friendly and professional staff, my wife and I feel like family during our visits annually. Dr. Terry and his staff are amazing. The DC dentist has helped both me and my wife when our dental problems… As an example I had a case of gingivitis for about a year-and-a-half and I tried three different dentist before finding the DC dentist which of whom cured my problem. As a herbalist and a holistic person myself they are the perfect fit, for my dental needs and longevity. I’m now married to them for life..

Glenda S. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


My daughters and I were seeking an eco-friendly, holistic dentist and found The DC Dentist in the Pathways magazine. Today, was our initial visit to this dental office and we were immediately wowed! We were greeted by a very friendly staff, who had taken no time to get us back for our appointments in a very timely manner. The wait time was …extremely short as they allowed us to complete and submit our new patient paperwork via email. I deem this process to be super efficient, in addition to being very courteous and considerate of their patient’s time. Dr. Victor Terry was very kind, knowledgeable and provided a very comprehensive report on his findings upon completion of my daughters’ exams and x-ray interpretations. While there, I received a cosmetic/orthodontic consultation, which Dr. Terry took the extra care and time to determine what my needs and desires were. I enjoy his partnership approach, whereas other practices I had consulted with in the path, seemed more aggressive in terms of providing an analysis and determination of orthodontic care. Overall, my girls and I were extremely happy with our visit and even raved to our family members and friends about our experience. Finally, there are so many other factors that immediately attracted us to this place. I admire The DC Dentist’s mission to provide a bio/eco-friendly and natural approach to dentistry and orthodontic care. The second was, the convenient locations in Capitol, which is close proximity to our favorite grocers, restaurants, home and a plethora of transportation hubs.  By the way – They are offering a special ($500 off) of the Clear Correct invisaligners this month only!!! I took advantage of the special today. I say all of this to say – We finally struck gold, finding and coming to receive dental and initiating ortho care at this practice. I highly recommend anyone who cares about their total health to consider becoming a patient.

Being a practitioner of wholistic health wellness (spirit, soul and body), I experienced service excellence with the competent, professional and wholistic services of Dr. Terry Victor, pleasant receptionist Lexus, and very competent Cheryl, Dental Hygienist today! I appreciated the caring and competence Cheryl displayed in providing dental/gum cleaning while she stood, because it was difficult for me to recline in the dental chair (challenges with boggy nasal passages due to Vasomotor rhinitis). I made a well-informed choice in utilizing the Wholistic, biological and Eco-friendly services of the phenomenal Dr. Terry Vincent and staff!!

As a long-term patient I’m pleased to report that DC Dentist Staff is always courteous, responsive, professional. I truly appreciate Dr. Victor’s pleasant and knowledgeable interaction with me. I don’t hesitate to refer family and friends. Gratitude for referrals is demonstrated. All of their efforts have assisted me to be “relaxed” during dental treatment!

The people here are incredibly kind, skilled, and respectful. I have anxiety with dentists as well as some unique medical challenges (due to a birth defect) but was accommodated in a way that made me feel respected and “normal”. I got absolutely none of the usual guilt trips I get from other dentists. Every single person at DC Dentist made me feel supported and informed. I won’t lie, as a woman I’m so unused to being listened to and treated with respect I actually teared up a little out of relief. This was the first time in my life I actually enjoyed a dental experience.

Kate L. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend the practice of Dr. Terry Victor. I had my first appointment this week and everyone made me feel at home. The hygenist, Jasmine was so kind and caring and did a great job. Dr. Victor was genuinely open, friendly and knowledgeable, explaining several things to me.  I was happy to find a holistic dentist here in the DC area, as I had gone to one in my former town in Vermont!

Ellen J. from Northwest Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I met Dr. Victor at the Pathways Expo last fall and I won a free cleaning. In addition, I am having major work done including two crowns and a night guard. I explained that since I have to make presentations, and I am constantly in front of people, that it was important that my crown look authentic (number 8 , front and center). Dr. Victor listened and reassured me that I had nothing to worry about and that even the temporary crown would be fine. He referred me to the lab to ensure that the shade would be an exact match. He has gone the extra mile to ensure that the outcome is positive. I have been extremely pleased with the care and attention to detail that Dr. Victor has demonstrated. I now have a temporary crown , which actually looks exactly like my natural tooth, including the shade, structure, etc. Dr. Victor and his staff have assured me that the permanent crown will be even better, and it should arrive within the next two weeks. I can hardly wait to see it! I should note also that Dr. Victor has a gentle touch, making the experience virtually pain free! The office is very comfortable and conducive to the comfort of the patient–the massaging dental chair is also a great touch! All members of the staff are professional, conscientious and compassionate, and they always make my experience pleasant. I look forward to having more work done by the DC Dentist!

Uchenna E. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The most painless and professional dental service I’ve had the pleasure of receiving. Even before you get into “the chair” you’re put at complete ease by the staff and environment. Dr. Victor himself is highly skilled and knowledgeable and your time in the chair will be nothing like the nerve-wracking experiences a lot of us are used to from other dental offices. The fact that the dental chairs are massage chairs doesn’t hurt either. These guys are the best I’ve come across.

Tarn O. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Okay. I am not a fan of dentists. I am not a fan of leaving 5-star reviews unless it is truly deserved, either. I had a fantastic experience here. The entirety of the operation is housed in an old brownstone type building, but the interior is bright and airy and even has natural light. Because I am not a fan of dentists, it has been a few years between cleanings. However, the hygienist was of excellent humor, possessed grace and patience, and was an artist with cleaning my teeth. Dr. Victor was also a man clearly happy with his vocation, and happily guiding his whole practice towards ‘greening’ the dental industry. In fact, when the office heard about my line of work, the office manager offered to give me a tour of the facility and show off their initiatives at sustainability (energy efficiency, reducing pollution from waste, including nasty amalgams, et cetera). I actually, and I am not making this up, cannot wait until my six-month return for cleaning comes up!

Joe Bruce Realtor (Source: Google)


I am a senior and aware of a profession staff when I see one and Dr. Victor’s staff is one of the best. I have only been a client for about 8 months. Dr. Victor and his staff made me feel very relaxed. I am one who had a bad experience as a young person with needles, but Dr. Victor and his staff understood and took extra time and care to make me feel comfortable. It worked. I have scheduled my routine dental and care with his office. Thanks Dr. Victor.

Ranjani S. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr Victor was very gracious and helpful with an emergency fallen bridge issue for my mom who was visiting from India. He put in a temporary solution to reset her bridge and allowed my mom to travel back with great peace of mind. Dr. Victor provided a solution in one setting and did a great quality job. My mom also appreciated his great bed-side manner. We would recommend him without reservation!

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


I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Victor, Dr. Daniels, and the amazing staff here. This practice, and the people who run it and work here, DESERVE FIVE STARS. 1) I’ve always been seen within a day or so when I’ve needed any kind of help. I was seen today after cracking a tooth on popcorn. 2) I know the doctors and dental hygiene specialists will be kind and respect my comfort level. They’ve earned my trust. 3) Pricing is transparent. After being evaluated, I was presented with options and an estimate for the cost. Incredibly grateful for this practice and for the kind and capable doctors, hygiene specialists, and office staff.

Once of the greatest blessings for me in 2019 was being referred to the DC Dentist by my Naturopathy Doctor. They saved me from a double front upper teeth root canal and all that could have come after and kept my wholistic well-being front and center. I appreciate the professionalism, kindness, and caring of all the staff . Shout out to Dr. Daniels , Dr. Victor , the awesome dental hygienists and the entire team. You are simply the Best!!

K C. from Princeville, HI (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this dentist since he established himself in DC, and have always had positive experiences, or as positive as dentist visits can be. I’ve had a variety of work done, from cleanings to crowns to fillings to implants. Staff are friendly and professional, office environment is good, but most importantly Terry Victor is highly skilled and competent. O have never been disappointed. I highly recommend him and his practice.

I found the DC Dentist via the internet, the office had very good reviews. In my experience a lot of times the sevice does not always support reviews, but in this case it definitely did! The doctors & staff were kind, courteous and most of all professional. Although my visits were consultations, I left feeling confident that I have made the right choice.

AMAZING service! My experience here was the best dental experience I’ve had. Very friendly, calm & soothing atmosphere. Everyone was warm from the front desk staff to my hygienist and dentist. It was quick, I felt comfortable & relaxed the whole time. The dentist (I saw Dr. Jackson), was very informative and gentle during my evaluation. I had the same experience with the hygienist (I believe Shakora) during my cleaning. The chair was a massage chair, which was a great touch. A huge bonus is how eco-friendly and sustainable the business is, including using all natural products. I had a really great experience here and will definitely recommend them to everyone!
