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

A M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Joining the chorus to praise Washington DC Dentistry, Dr. Kham, and the delightful staff. I endorse the reviews below and will only add a rough metaphor to describe my enthusiasm for a dentist. I think of my prior dentist offices as fast food joints – I’m processed as a quick customer, only investing enough energy to avoid the unseemly or objectionable. Service is haphazard, staff is indifferent, every consideration is priced as an upsell. I’m there for the transaction and eager to leave. Dr. Kham’s office, then, is your favorite friendly corner cafe – warm, thoughtful, personable. Your server has great recommendations, the owner remembers your kid’s name, refills are always free. The type of place you bring visiting friends. The type of place you bother writing glowing Yelp reviews for!!!

Dr. Kham’s practice is the best I’ve ever been to. Dr. Kham is thorough and knowledgeable, sometimes conducting the cleanings himself. He is also transparent, giving my multiple treatment options at different price points. The other staff — the administrators and hygienists — are super friendly and professional. The office is clean and modern. I could not recommend this office more strongly!

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


I have the worst dental fear on the planet, I used to cry every time I had to go even for a cleaning. I have been seeing Dr. Kham for years now and while I still do not like going to the dentist, my fear is mild anxiety now instead of full blown terror. Dr. Kham is truly a kind, compassionate person that I trust with my teeth, he doesn’t try to push services you don’t need and is always so nice. Highly recommend!

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


I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Kham, especially after a recent tooth extraction. The procedure was literally over before I knew it and I woke up the next morning without any pain – I was shocked. His explanations are always great – he walks you through everything he does. My husband and I are huge fans (like other reviewers, we followed him from his old practice because we couldn’t imagine going to any other dentist). I’ve always appreciated Dr. Kham’s flexibility – there is never a wait (he’s taken me in early when I ran early) and if he has the availability, he’ll do a filling right then to save you an extra trip. His staff is great too 🙂

The Office is very clean and Nice . The staff is very professional,friendly and pleasant. Ms. Linzie and Dr.Kham is very Patient and understanding of his patients financial situations and will help you by giving you a payment plan. I am so glad to have him as my dentist and I highly recommend him to everyone I meet that needs an Awesome dentist‼️

Brandon E. from Fairfax, VA (Source: Yelp)


First off, I’m terrified of doctors. I walked in scared to death, but left with no stress and a big (clean) smile. Dr. Kham saw me and I had a great appointment and when I returned the next week I was very enthusiastic about it. It was comfortable, the team was so friendly and personable, and Dr Kham was extremely genuine, caring, and careful with me. I’d 100% recommend, especially if you’re looking for a top-notch office, and doctor.

Sono S. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kham and the staff are excellent, extremely professional and very nice! I usually hate going to the dentist, but everyone at the office does a fantastic job at clearly explaining what’s going on and are always making sure that I felt comfortable. Strongly recommend!!

Dr. Kham has been our family dentist for many years, and he is absolutely one of the best medical professionals that I have had in my life. He is highly skilled, extremely caring, and always wants the best for his patients. Over the years, he has been giving me and my family very accurate assessment and very sincere advises. He goes above and beyond, and does things for free (such as scanning for oral cancer with the advanced tools he buys) because it is important for him as a responsible medical professional. We trust him 100% because he is simply the best!

Alexis Applegate (Source: Google)


Dr. Kham is quite literally the best dentist I have ever had. He is caring and talks you through every procedure. I just went in for a cleaning, and he found a cavity. He filled it right there on the spot with no pain, so I did not have to come back into the office during the holidays. I highly suggest his practice, and his new location is very convenient and nice.

Avery R. from Baltimore, MD (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist but Dr. Kham’s office is literally as good as it gets. The staff are friendly and efficient. Dr. Kham is gentle and explains everything he is doing.  I recently needed a crown and he took care if it quickly and as pain free as possible. I’m moving and sad to be leaving this practice!

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


Been seeing Dr. Kham for two years now and am still so grateful I found him.  It’s a relief to have such a friendly, gentle dentist who answers all my questions!  This place is so considerate — they even give you protective glasses before cleanings so nothing splashes in your eyes, and they put chapstick on your lips before starting so your lips don’t dry out uncomfortably while they work!  What more could you possibly want from a dentist?!?!  In addition to this, I’m having SO many less fillings done than before — he said that instead of drilling immediately, more modern practice is to monitor a potential cavity over 6-12 months to see if the spot is worsening before immediately drilling.  I really appreciate this, because my last dentist was starting to make my teeth feel like swiss cheese.  Finally, I take my night guard with me every time I visit, and they clean and disinfect it for me and Dr. Kham tests the fit to make sure it’s still good.  Even though my night guard is very chipped and banged up after years of use, Dr. Kham is like, “Well, it’s still doing what it needs to,” and never pressures me to get a new one if it’s not necessary.  Can’t tell you how nice that is.  I swear half my office also sees Dr. Kham now.

Dr. Kham has been my dentist for six years. He is also my wife’s dentist. Without a doubt, he is the best healthcare provider in the city – dentists, doctors, surgeons, physical therapists, and all others included. There is, quite simply, no one like him. He cares so deeply about his patients, he is unbelievably dedicated to his craft, he is skillful, he always keeps us comfortable (even during stressful and inherently difficult procedures), he is kind, he is courteous, and, perhaps most importantly, he cares about our dignity. He does the little things that make all the difference – placing moisturizer on dry lips, checking glands for swelling, looking for oral cancer during each visit, keeping up with our family history, and checking in on our lives. He also has intellectual curiosity and a drive to master his craft. He really is the crown jewel of dentistry in the DMV area. I have lost track of the number of times he has gone above and beyond for me and my wife. We simply will never trust a dentist like we trust him. When he formed his own practice, we were thrilled. Par for the course, he has hired staff (hygienists, assistants, and admin staff) that are extremely qualified, friendly, and kind. When my wife and I come into the office for visits, we are treated like friends – not business. As long as Doctor Kham can maintain his workload and practice, we will be lifelong customers – that includes our children in the future.

Amy G. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


The nicest dentist and seems to genuinely care about his patients. He always seems to remember what we talked about on previous visits. He explains each step and why he is doing what he is doing and checks to make sure you are ok. He has always been on time. I’m in and out of the office in less than 30 minutes. It is a seamless process each time. I always recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist!

Philip K. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Just checked in and left a longer review but to reiterate, Dr Kham is the best. He is kind, thorough, patient and encouraging throughout your procedures, and I’ve come to him for numerous and different services. I highly recommend him – he’s hands down my favorite dentidt in DC!

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


Dr. Kham is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. My entire office goes to him now because word spread so quickly. He is so professional and seems to care about his patients and want the best for us. I love that he explains everything he does as he is doing it. I don’t feel like he recommends unnecessary procedures, and he really saved my life when I needed two root canals. Shout out to Datrice and Vermelle, who are the friendliest and most efficient assistant and receptionist, respectively.

Carolyn Muraskin (Source: Google)


Dr. Kham is the absolute best! My husband and I both go to him, and we recommend him to anyone that asks! Dr. Kham is friendly and professional, has wonderful bedside manner, and always seems happy to see you. He remembers all of his patients, and is clearly deeply committed to providing quality dental care. He recently opened his own practice in a great location with wonderful staff. He’s the only medical professional I look forward to seeing!

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


Dr. Kham is the best dentist. He is always incredibly positive and friendly when you walk into the office. He walks you through every step of the process and he was the first medical professional to walk me through my x-rays and explain what I was seeing and what to expect. He’s both knowledgeable and easy to talk to!

Ellen S (Source: Google)


Dr. Kham and his staff are amazing. He’s attentive, meticulous, and talks you through every step he is taking, and his assistants are always helpful, warm, and professional. Anytime he recommends an action (filling, canal, etc.) he shows you changes he sees on the x-rays and makes sure you understand why. To Dr Kham and his team, you are like an old friend, a person they respect and appreciate. So lucky to have found him.

Magdalena Navarro (Source: Google)


Dr. Kham’s practice was recommended by a friend and we couldn’t be happier. His bedside manner is excellent; knowledgeable and affable. I was afraid of going to the dentist until we started seeing him. His staff is also very competent and friendly. Would definitely recommend him to any families out there

Margot L. from Tucson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


A friend recommended Dr. Kham’s office to me when I was searching for a dentist in town. I’m so glad she did, because Dr. Kham is an excellent dentist, has wonderful staff, and a great office. I have never had such a thorough, dedicated exam, and it was clear Dr. Kham cared about my health and wanted to make sure I knew how to maintain proper care of my teeth. Everyone was lovely and made the experience extraordinarily pleasant. I’m so glad I went, and would highly recommend this practice. Also, all the music they played was amazing.

Grant S. from Ann Arbor, MI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kham is not only a phenomenal dental expert, he’s a genuinely compassionate person. He has gone out of his way to treat me like a real friend, and not just another customer. As others say, his bedside manner is very communicative; he explains what he’s doing and why each step if the way, and he’s always sure to check in to ask how you’re feeling. I’ve been sending everyone I know to him because I’ve really been that impressed! Not to mention the rest of his staff, who are all extremely warm and professional.

Dan G. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I followed Dr Kham from a previous practice and am so pleased with his independent endeavor. His office is immaculate and staff are so pleasant. Dr Kham is both superbly friendly and incredibly thorough. I always appreciate his gentle touch and careful explanation of my dental health. I recommend him enthusiastically.

Shanelle Powell (Source: Google)


My 9 year old son and I are seen here and we absolutely love it. Dr. Kham and his staff are professional, funny, and friendly. They definitely make you feel comfortable. My son and I were never happy about getting dental work done but Dr. Kham talked us through every step, asking questions and just making sure we were comfortable through the whole process. We truly appreciated his kindness.

Jessica Ott (Source: Google)


This is a great dentistry practice—I was sad to leave my previous dentist when I moved to DC, but they quickly made me feel like I’d been going there for years. They are thorough, kind, efficient, and understanding. They have gone above and beyond during Covid to accommodate my unpredictable schedule. I felt very safe during both of my post-Covid appointments. I highly recommend them.

Jess B. from Court House, Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Kham for four years first at Daniel Cave & Associates and now at his new practice- Washington DC Dentistry.  His new office is conveniently located less than a 5 minute walk from the Foggy Bottom metro station.  Dr. Kham leads the teeth cleaning process and takes time to explain all necessary steps.  On two separate occasions, he has been able to do fillings during the initial teeth cleaning appointment.  His receptionist went above and beyond by calling my insurance when a billing question arose.  I recommend Dr. Kham to all my family and friends and have no doubt that his professionalism and customer service will make his new practice one of the most sought after in the D.C. area.

Latoya W. from Cincinnati, OH (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kham is heaven sent. Honestly, I’ve been putting off going to the dentist for YEARS (I won’t tell you because I don’t need that kind of judgement) frankly because I’m scared to death of dental care. After scrolling through Yelp, I found Dr. Kham and saw all the 5 star reviews. The office is convenient enough so I figured I’ll give it a try. I called to make an regular check up appointment and was told I couldn’t get in for a couple weeks. The lady was very kind and explained she’ll let me know of any cancellations so I can come in sooner. Literally a couple hours later, she calls me back and says I can come in the next day! Nice! So I book a Friday appointment. The office was easy to find. The staff were super personable, fun, and eased down my anxiety. I was offered water or coffee while I filled out paperwork. I waited for maybe 2 mins (so fast!!!) and was taken to the back to do X-Rays. Dr. Kham explained every detail to me, he explained I would need fillings (anyone surprised? Remember it’s been years haha) and even showed me my cavity. I liked him so much, after my Friday appointment, I booked my filling appointment for the upcoming Monday! Again, Dr. Kham walked through every step of the filling, letting me know of any pressure that would come. My fillings took about 35 mins and I was out the door, feeling numb but thankful it didn’t hurt one bit!! So yeah folks, take it from someone who has already been in twice in one week. Everything from the location, the staff, the cleanliness, friendliness, and of course the overall Dr. experience. This place deserves much more than 5 stars.

Nabila A. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve ever had. Dr. Kham did five cavity fillings for me and a gum treatment. He was kind, thorough, and extremely attentive. He immediately noticed the issue with my gums without me prompting him (I’d asked two previous dentists about it and they both dismissed the issue). He also treated an infection I had around a wisdom tooth for free. He’d still be my dentist if I hadn’t left D.C. The office is also great, and the staff are friendly, organized and responsive. All in all, I fully recommend Dr. Kham. I’d give him 6 stars if I could.

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


Some of the best care I’ve ever received.  With all the horrible, inefficient, overpriced medical care out there, the waiting 45 min for an appointment, the “oops we sent your labs to an out-of-network provider,” etc., when you stumble upon a wonderful medical provider and attentive and friendly receptionist to boot, you just want to hug them!  I started with Dr. Kham before he had his own practice.  I came to him after having a horrible experience with Washington Elite Dentistry that is the subject of another review :).  An extremely knowledgeable, caring, patient-focused doctor who is not at all out to make a buck off you, and knows how to tell you when you need to up your oral hygiene game (not speaking from personal experience or anything, my teeth are bangin).  I take my toddler to him and am trying to convince my husband to switch over to him, I am Dr. Kham’s biggest fan!

Maura S (Source: Google)


I moved to DC about 3 years ago and was struggling to find a new go-to dentist that I trusted. I found Dr. Kham on OpenCare and I couldn’t be happier. Everyone in the office is always so friendly and they create a warm environment for people who may have fears/reservations about dentist visits. Dr. Kham is patient and explains everything he is doing in detail so that you’re always comfortable.

Garrett Lamm (Source: Google)


I’ve gone to Dr. Kham for about 5 years, at his previous practice and now his new one. He’s the best dentist I’ve ever had. Super kind and knowledgeable, and also extremely communicative. He always explains what he is doing, why he is doing it, and really puts you at ease throughout your whole visit. I cannot recommend him enough.

Michael M. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kahm embodies professionalism and care. He is thorough, explains what he is doing every step of the way, and is more than happy to sit with his patients to understand and address any questions or concerns. From my first appt. which was a checkup and cleaning, to a filling that I requested based on my history, he has been nothing short of extraordinary. On top of that, he has an incredible staff who are equally as kind, caring, and professional. I can only recommend his office and services. He is my new dentist until he moves or I move. Good dentists are very hard to find in DC. Every experience I feel I’m either getting gouged on pricing or not taken care of well. My wife even had an office recommend a root canal which we went through with only to find out from 3 other dentists, that they wouldn’t have done it. Ended up costing us $5,500!! Dr. Kahm is great, I recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.

Lacy H. from Granger, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kham has been my dentist for over 2 years now. I feel so lucky to have found him. He’s the only dentist/doctor I’ve had who carefully walks me through my options, and is honest about the trade-offs and costs associated. For example, I went through the Invisalign process with him because he was careful to explain what I needed to do to see results, was easy to schedule appointments with, and he’s a perfectionist, so I knew it would be done well (and it was!). Even after Invisalign, my visits to the office are quick, easy, and I am always greeted by the staff. It is telling when the dentist does most of the cleanings. He makes sure to know his patients and develop a personal and professional relationship to better respond to their needs. The office itself is clean and conveniently located. I highly recommend Dr. Kham and his team.

Stella Bonds (Source: Google)


Dr. Sai and his team are espectacular. They are professional, attentive and friendly. I just had a root canal done and Dr. Sai was explaining the process as he was working on it. This is not my first time having this procedure and I found it very informative. He also offered his phone number to call him if any problem since the procedure was done on Friday and the dentistry will be closed. I see how Dr. Sai really care. His staff are two great ladies very pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend it

Sean Dugan (Source: Google)


Dr. Kham is an excellent dentist and also an all-around great guy. He’s not like many dentists in town who are out to get ya: he’s honest about the care you need and the care you don’t need. His staff is wonderful as well. Highly recommend if you’re new to DC or your current dentist doesn’t match this description.

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


Dr. Kham is a great dentist. He explains what he’s going to do before he does it and checks in with you regularly to see how you’re feeling. He’s extremely thorough and does great work (have had 2 crowns done with him). He’s very warm and kind and will help you feel at ease. He used to work at Cave & Associates before opening his own practice in Winter/Spring 2018 so you can also check their yelp site for additional reviews.
