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

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


I became a new patient of Dr. Fattahi based on a glowing recommendation from a coworker. She was so right. I had a very positive experience scheduling with the office as a new patient and getting in for a cleaning and exam based on a toothache. My hygienist was thorough, gentle and kind, which put me at ease as I often get stressed getting my teeth cleaned. Dr. Fattahi took a good amount of time talking with me and searching out the source of my toothache. He also gave me a lot of information about my teeth from the x-rays, going above and beyond the explanations I am used to from other dentists. He is a pleasant and respectful person and a quality dentist. Before leaving I got help from the front desk to figure out an insurance coverage question and in scheduling a follow up appointment. Everyone in this office is a true professional, they made me feel comfortable with going to the dentist in a way I have never experienced.

I’ve been going to Dr. Fattahi for 5+ years and have always had exceptional experiences. The staff are friendly and easy to deal with. The technicians and hygienists are professional and do an excellent job. Dr. Fattahi is experienced and takes his time to review how you’re doing and listen to any problems you may have. He always provides sound implementable advice. Highly recommended!

Nick D. from Northwest Washington, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I had a wonderful experience at this dentist office. The office is clean and nice. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The dental hygienist provided a thorough yet gentle cleaning. Dr. Fattahi was also quite kind and warm and answered several questions I had regarding my x-rays and previous work another dentist had recommended. The only drawback is the location, which is not very public transit accessible. However, if you can make it over to Palisades another way I highly recommend. After poor experiences elsewhere the Uber ride was well worth it. Thank you Dr. Fattahi!

This is going to be a long review, but please bear with me because there’s plenty of great things to say about Dr. Fattahi and his entire practice. About 3 years ago I fractured one of my upper left molars while I was sleeping because I grind my teeth while I sleep. I broke off about one third of the tooth and it had to be filled. The fracture was big enough that the tooth needed to be crowned, but I was deployed overseas when it broke and a crown was not possible at the time. I’ve since gotten out of the military and I’m new to the DC area. Of course, the filling breaks; I have no dental insurance, my regular dentist is in St. Louis, and I have a gaping hole in my tooth that needs taken care of asap. So I turned to Yelp and found a dentist (not Dr. Fattahi). I went to this dentist, who will remain nameless, and he was outrageously expensive and largely unimpressive. He charged $275 for an x-ray and a very rough temporary filling to hold me over until he could crown the tooth. His quote for the crown was expensive as well, so I called my regular dentist in St. Louis to get his advice. He said the quote was unacceptable, especially for how underwhelmed I sounded about my first appointment. I was back to square one on Yelp. I found Dr. Fattahi on Yelp and figured I would call. After 5 minutes of speaking over the phone with one of Dr. Fattahi’s staff members I was thoroughly impressed. The gentleman listened to my entire story, offered me a free consultation with Dr. Fattahi, gave me an estimated quote that was significantly less than the first dentist, and assured me that I would be given a further discount because I am uninsured. He was respectful, polite, professional, and accommodating. I later found that this is the standard at Dr. Fattahi’s office. I was impressed by the phone call, but I was sold by the consultation. Dr. Fattahi was friendly, explanatory, and most importantly honest. After looking at my x-rays he told me that the fracture was close enough to the tooth’s nerve that I possibly needed a root canal. This wasn’t exactly news to me because the dentist who originally filled the tooth 3 years ago and the first dentist I found on Yelp both said the same thing. However, Dr. Fattahi said that he did not want to make a potentially risky call and proceed without a specialist’s opinion. He referred me to a specialist whose opinion he trusted and was able to get me an appointment the same morning. I didn’t end up needing a root canal, Dr. Fattahi placed the crown, and I got a cleaning because I was overdue and I was already there. Dr. Fattahi and his hygienists are clearly far more than capable to perform any procedure in the dental spectrum from a routine exam/cleaning to fitting and placing a crown. During the procedure I was shocked by Dr. Fattahi’s skill and gentleness. He and his entire staff had my best interest in mind from start to finish. Overall, I couldn’t be more satisfied. This office turned what was a major source of stress into a positive situation. As long as I live in the DC area I know who my regular dentist will be, and if you are reading this lengthy review because you’re looking for a dentist, I highly suggest you follow suit and make an appointment! You won’t be disappointed!

OMG what an amazing experience feeling safe and cared for❤️ Being highly compromised, I was scared to death with COVID and fell behind on my cleanings but as I walked into the office I realized my dentist had spare options or cost to make sure patients and staff are safe. Every imaginable security measure has been implemented without compromising the quality of care and service. Never ceases to amaze me.

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


Everyone was AWESOME!! The lady at the front desk is very sweet and helpful with insurance dealings. Tiffany, my dental hygienist, ROCKS! She was so much fun and got my teeth super bright and shiny! She was also very helpful giving advise about maintaining healthy teeth. Dr. Fattahi is very nice and knowledgable. I feel comfortable trusting him with my teeth. I would highly recommend this practice!

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


I just had my first appointment with Dr. Fattahi and was very happy with the entire experience. I picked him based on the reviews, and I can only echo what a great dentist he is, how friendly the staff is, and how knowledgeable everyone there is.  I have a fear of the dentist but the staff put me at ease immediately with their professionalism, knowledge, and friendliness.  Most importantly, the work that they did on my teeth was excellent and painless! I would definitely recommend him!!

I’m so unsettled with anything related to a dentist visit. Being there at Dr. Fattahi’s office from the warm reception to the very enthused assistance, calmed me so. Each of them were fully present and fully present with me and my needs. The environment and everyone there… it was a pleasant experience that I wouldn’t dread returning.

Kori Spriggs (Source: Google)


The staff is so caring and friendly. The office is very professional and very very clean! Dr Fattahi has been my dentist for years. Julie, has cleaned my teeth for the last few years. My teeth are in such great shape due to God and their service. They are the best you can get!! Highly recommended!!!

Gene A. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


More than 20 years with the same Doctor. That should be enough to summarize this review. You’ll never want to take your teeth anywhere else. Not only is Dr. Fattahi one of the nicest, gentlest, most competent dentists you’ll ever meet — he’s one of the nicest, gentlest *people* you’ll ever meet and that energy is everywhere in his office. Dr. Fattahi makes a dental visit as pleasant as it can possibly be. There is virtually no wait time, the equipment is very modern, the staff is pleasant, and he genuinely wants to give you the best care. He’s not someone who will take on the work of a specialist just to get extra business. I’ll spare you the details, but I had number of dental issues and Dr. Fattahi and his staff saved my grill and now I’m never self-conscious about my teeth. They’re stronger and better looking than ever.

Bonita W. from Temple Hills, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fattahi is THE BEST – hands down – no contest. I met Dr. Fattahi in 1988, shortly after his Magna Cum Laude graduation from Howard University’s School of Dentistry. At that time, Dr. F. was working in the office of Dr. Paul Jones (a/k/a “Painless Paul), and their motto was “We cater to cowards” – which is how I knew I was in the RIGHT place. [I was so bad, the last dentist I visited before Dr. Jones and Dr. Fattahi put me out of his office for being too nervous]. I saw Dr. Jones and Dr. Fattahi on my first visit, but, on the second visit “Painless Paul” was out of town and I have been Dr. Fattahi’s patient ever since…which was 24 years ago. His chairside manner is unbelieveable. Not only does he explain everything in the simplest terms, but, he is always attentive and works hard to ensure his patients are comfortable and he shows concern at the least movement, facial expression or sigh. Dr. F. has always maintained an immaculate “state of the art” office replete w/ cable tvs at each chair. He has further demonstrated the extraordinary knack of employing individuals who adhere to his same standards of excellence, display his same exceptional work ethic, give tremendous customer service, have extremely pleasant personalities and consistently display compassion and sensitivity in each interaction. Needless to say, Dr. Fattahi is just an all-around nice guy, down to earth, conversant on any subject and genuinely concerned about his patients. [He even called me once to see how I was doing when one of my other friends whom I had referred arrived for her appointment and told him I had been in a car accident]. Everyone who knows me knows I have the BEST dentist in town. I now look forward to going to the dentist, never miss my appointments and have told Dr. Fattahi quite emphatically that he MUST outlive me because I have absolutely NO intention of ever having another dentist!

Dr. Fattahi has been my dentist for over 30 years. His chair side manner is assuring, efficient and, more importantly, removes all anxiety. The office atmosphere is pleasant, beautifully appointed, and conveniently located whether you live in DC, Maryland, or Virginia. If you need a highly skilled dentist, that stays current with the best dental technology, I recommend you give Dr. Fattahi a try.

Lee F. from Washington D.C., DC (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been in DC for three years and have gone to several dentists in that time. Dr Fattahi and his team are by far the best dental office and the best dentist that I have found and Im planning to continue to visit this office throughout the rest of my stay. Ive had regular cleanings, fillings, crowns and whitening done in the office and it has all turned out very well. The main highlights I can point out for you are: 1: Knowledgable staff. it’s obvious that the entire team is proficient and up to date on modern techniques. 2. Caring: They are invested in making you feel comfortable not just get you in and out as fast as possible. What else can you ask for? For me this combination works.

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


I was actually looking for a new Dentist so I asked my FB friends for recommendations. Dr Fattahi name came up several times so I made an appointment. Dr Fattahi and staff are friendly professional. Actually looking forward to my next appointment. The handwritten thank you note and was such a nice touch. Update 4/2016 Boy a lot has happened since 11/2014. I started my invisalign in 2015 and happy to announce I’m done. On my final tray Dr. Fattahi could see I was not 100 percent satisfied so he ordered me refinement trays and I love my smile. Who looks forward to getting her teeth cleaned? This girl…Julie is amazing. Love the staff at the office and Dr. Fattahi they are so personable. Oh and they are always ready for me when I arrive.

DC D. from Capitol Hill/Southeast, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit with Dr. Fattahi last week and am thrilled to have found him. From the moment I made my appointment through to the after service (received a handwritten ‘thank you and welcome to the practice’ note from the doctor a couple days after my visit), the entire experience was OUTSTANDING. The hygienist Tiffany is fantastic. She took her time cleaning my teeth and gave me great tips and advice, without being overly aggressive. Her demeanor is sweet and friendly and reassuring, making it genuinely a pleasure to have my teeth cleaned. Dr. Fattahi then spent a great deal of time with me during the consultation portion of the visit, listening to all my concerns and addressing all my issues. He is warm and personable and has a great bedside manner. His office never makes you feel like they are selling you extra services. They offer sincere, practical advice centered upon genuine concern for your dental health. I have to say that this is a rare experience for me with dentists. If you are not insured, he makes sure to keep things within a very reasonable budget. I compared the cost of basic services at his office to many others in the area and his basics are very very competitive and the service is very individualized. Plus you don’t have to wait weeks to get an appointment! The entire staff from the receptionists on are very personable and overall a visit to his office makes you feel like a part of a family….quite a wonderfully surprising experience…when going to the dentist!

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


I’m always skeptical when a practice has nothing but top scores on Yelp, but I nevertheless decided to book an appointment with Dr. Fattahi after recently moving to DC. His staff was very professional, polite, and personable. The appointment was very thorough and comfortable. Questions were quickly addressed and I was not pressured into unnecessary treatments or procedures. Its safe to say that Dr. Fattahi will be my DC dentist, and I’ll be recommending this practice to everyone.

Molly L. from San Carlos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who actually likes going to the dentist????? Shhhh don’t tell anyone, but I do! Dr. Fattahi is AWESOME!!!!!!! As someone who didn’t have dental insurance for a long time, he heavily discounted my bills. Don’t worry I’ve still spent plenty of money there, bad teeth run in my family :(. Nonetheless he is great about noticing improvements in how I care for my teeth. Which motivates me to keep up the tedious dental routine I now follow. His staff is fantastic!! Very personable and go out of their way to make sure every visit to the dental chair is a pleasant one. Whether your teeth are in great shape or close to marshmallows, go to Dr. Fattahi!!!! He will take care of you. You can even tell them I sent you, I’m not a regular anymore (phew) but they still know who I am.

My aunt recommended Dr. Fattahi after I left my previous dentist for lack of good customer service. I’ve never experienced an all around good office like Dr. Fattahi and his staff. Not only are they knowledgeable about dentistry but they are all so welcoming and exude such a positive environment. I always feel like family. I definitely recommend!

Jill Leontiadis (Source: Google)


The whole office is very professional, and very kind. Dr. Fattahi does an amazing job and makes you feel like you are in excellent care. I always have faith in his work. The office is clean and observes Covid regulations. I couldn’t say more about the personalized and generous care in which I have received. I’m so very grateful!

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


I found Dr. Fattahi after moving to the area and looking for a new dentist. His reviews were among the best I had seen, so I thought I would give it a shot even though the office is a bit further from me than other options. I am so glad I decided to go with Dr. Fattahi – everything about the experience was wonderful! The front desk staff, hygienist, and doctor were all very kind and attentive. I will definitely be returning and will be telling everyone I know to go to this office!

Jia Min W. from George Washington University, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Fattahi and his dental hygienist, Julie, were amazing! Everyone at the clinic,including the receptionists at the front desk, was warm and friendly. My insurance does not cover dental services. Yet, this clinic quoted and charged a reasonable price for the dental cleaning that I did. Julie and Doctor Fattahi did a thorough job in cleaning and examining teeth. They were extremely professional in their service, offering detailed explanation on what was happening to my teeth and gave good advice for oral hygiene. What impressed me the most was their sincerity! They knew that I would not be returning to the States (only here for the short term), but volunteered to send my dentist back at home the x-ray which I took today. It is rare to spot a good dentist who prioritises the well-being of his patient than dispensing expensive and unnecessary treatments for his own gain. Thank you team, the visit was well-worthy and made my day! 🙂

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


Many things to praise about this practice. My two children and I have been patients for ten years or more. The office is friendly and functional, the dental hygienists attentive and professional, and the dentists skilled and easy to communicate with. My teenage daughter recently saw Dr. Fattahi for a problem that will require an extraction of her wisdom teeth. The always-genial and helpful office manager, Tosin Onikute, made several phone calls on her behalf, arranging an emergency appointment with an oral surgeon and facilitating the communications between the two offices. When she left, my daughter reported to me, “They took great care of me.” In short, I have never had a single complaint or reservation about this practice, and my daughter’s most recent visit confirmed my appreciation for the many professionals who work there.

Monique Harrison (Source: Google)


Dr. Fattahi and his staff are GREAT! Always attentive, concerned and empathetic. The service was exceptional from the time I entered the office through the time I completed my service. Dr. Fattahi made me feel like I was his only patient while working with me over a few months. He and his staff showed compassion throughout the implant process which was over several months. Go see him, you’ll be satisfied too.

We came to Dr. Fattahi because the dental care we needed cost over $100,000 in Manhattan. He did all the work and then some for a fraction of the NY costs. But more importantly he did an amazing job. The results are just awesome. His team is so caring and good. He is really the very best. A great dentist and a wonderful gentleman.

J P. from Vienna, VA (Source: Yelp)


I used to live in the AU Park area, so this dentist was great location-wise, and easy to get in and out of, which many offices in the DC area aren’t. This is an automatic plus. I came to Dr Fattahi for almost 3 years, and I wanted to continue too, however my time is more limited and I moved to VA. The staff and waiting area are very nice and accommodating. There’s a great area for kids too in the waiting room. I never had to wait more than 5 minutes, tops. Dr. Fattahi takes the fear and general bad stigma out of going to the dentist. It was painless, billing was simple and straightforward, and I never had any issues whatsoever. He also explains to you what he’s doing as he’s doing it, so you know what is happening. This is one of the few dentists in my life that I can rank at a 5 star rating! Excellent experience all around, highly recommend.

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


I read reviews on Yelp when deciding on a dentist here in DC. I’m a college student who hates having dental work done. The great reviews are all correct. I went to Dr. Fattahi with a few more dental problems than most have. I felt pretty self conscious and bad about it, but Dr. Fattahi assured me it’d get done and held no judgement. He’s a friendly, caring and honest dentist who cares deeply about not just making money, but making sure you are healthy, too. He’s the first dentist of mine that has talked about preventative care other than flossing and brushing. What a dentist!! Office staff is very friendly, as well!

Dawn M. from Springfield, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fattahi has been my dentist for 26 years. I cannot imagine ever going to another dentist. Dr. Fattahi is wonderful, in terms of the quality of his work and his caring, both for adults and children. His dental work is as close to painless as possible in a dental chair. He remembers his patients, their milestones, their health issues, and, of course, their teeth. Dr. Fattahi was my daughter’s first dentist, at age 3. He has been her dentist, except when she lived out of state for college and grad school, since that date. She is now 29. At age 3, my daughter left her first dental appointment, happily, asking when we were going back to see Dr. Fattahi again! I have had two route canals and Dr. Fattahi worked with me on payments when times were difficult. I could not ask for a better dentist.

Kade A. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


Wowww. My experience was amazing!!!!!!! (Never thought I would write a review on yelp, I am mainly the reader, but after my experience, I have to spread the word.) Dr. Fattahi and his staff is an amazing team. They work together systematically and efficiently. I have had from cleaning to complex procedures performed at Dr. Fattahi’s office. Their skill, communication and friendliness helped me feel relaxed. At times the staff and I chuckled from time to time, but when it was time to get to business, they focused and got the job done in a timely manner. Their care and concern for my health and comfort was natural and not forced. Their technology is advanced. Dr. Fattahi showed me digital X-ray of my teeth and the status and condition of them. High resolution flexible camera was used to look at the teeth at very detailed level. I was extremely impressed. Instantly, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Fattahi and the staff are very knowledgeable of their craft. I am glad I found Dr. Fattahi, he is my permanent dentist, and there is no need to search anymore. If you are looking for a dentist, I strongly recommend for you to visit this office, even for a consultation, you’ll be satisfied.

I have been a patient of Dr Fattahi for years. There is none better. He has an incredible bedside manner and treats each person with incredible care. He never recommends services that are not needed. I had a root canal happy dentist before him and I have always been certain that he treats me as he would treat a member of his family. In fact, many in my family now see him and we all love him. He is patient, available, offers incredible service and is very clear with his billing. I could not ask for more.

A. Greenough Dodd (Source: Google)


Fantastic experience with Dr Fattahi and his team this morning! As Dr Fattahi pieced together my dental history it immediately became apparent that he is experienced and well-versed in his field. Further, Dr Fattahi knew exactly how to communicate with me, what amount of detail I wanted/needed to hear. And the office… bright, open space. FIVE STARS all the way around!

Megan G. from Alexandria, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fattahi has been my dentist for over twenty years. He has assembled a wonderful team of professionals who are very caring in their approach to patients. I had a horrible dentist as a child and an extreme fear of going to the dentist as a result, but Dr. Fattahi has gotten me over that. I have sent many friends and colleagues his way and they all have been so pleased to work with him. He is terrific.

Rico S. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fattahi used to be my dentist years ago. He did an excellent job on a tooth, which later was ruined by a lady dentist with the way she did my bridge. I may get him to do it over one day. I recently found him on the net and he was the only person to help me find an oral surgeon to pull a tooth, which was also ruined by a male dentist in my area. His office used to be quieter with only one secretary, as I recall. He now has a larger staff along with another dentist, and all of the ladies are very nice. Unfortunately, he is not in the Aetna network, so dental work is limited with me. If you are looking for a professional who listens to you, he is the dentist for you!

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


I went to Dr. Fattahi on the recommendation of a friend, and am VERY glad I did. He is a professional, kind, cut-to-the-chase kind of doctor and you can tell he enjoys his job and his patients! He explains everything he’s going to do, takes the time to listen and delivers excellent and careful results. The office is also well-run and well-organized: I had a slew of fillings to get done and a very difficult work-related travel schedule and he and the office made sure I could get everything done as I needed it. I’d highly recommend Dr. Fattahi to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Jessi Finegan (Source: Google)


Best dentist I’ve been to in my whole life. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Fattahi is very sweet and caring. He is always making sure that his customers have a positive experience and that they are comfortable. I’ve gotten many procedures and treatments with him, and every time I leave very satisfied. I have recommended many friends and family. My mother travels all the way from Pennsylvania to be seen by him. If you’re scared of the dentist, go to Dr. Fattahi. He will make you loose the fear and look forward to every dentist appointment!

Jill L. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


I could not be happier with this Dentist. He has kind eyes, and his bedside manner is very professional and gives you a sense that you are in good hands. I have been in and out of Dentist offices, and have seen it all and have the dental records to prove it. After my first consultation, I was so impressed with his communication, and the warmth and kindness of the staff as well. Most importantly, he was recommended to me by a trusted source whom I literally trust with my life- let alone my teeth. (My source is an excellent judge of character and has given me wonderful recommendations and advice that have changed my life for the better). Above all, this Dentist has good character. He told me that my health was more important than my looks, as I was looking into cosmetic changes Dr. Fattahi spotted something that concerned him greatly and prioritized my health above my cosmetic yearnings. He will still revisit the cosmetic aspect when I am ready, but he reassured me that the health matter was much more pressing. I told my husband and now he wants to have him as a dentist as well. Dr. Fattahi is going into my gratitude journal today. He is also very classy without making you feel like a hobbit. He is competent, respected/respectful, polished, and compassionate. His staff is very pleasant, warm, and communicates very well.
