Tracey L. from Washington D.C., DC (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Izadi and all the staff at West End Dental. First, I have a terrible fear of going to the dentist, that being said, Dr. Izadi and the team could not have been more understanding, so friendly, and will in to work with my dental phobia. Second, the only reason I ended up going to the dentist in the first place was due to an issue which suddenly came up out of nowhere. I was grateful that I was able to get an appointment first thing the next day, but unfortunately, Dr. Izadi was unable to help with my issue but took it upon herself to call two dental specialists who were able to see me that very day, which would NEVER happen without her thoughtfulness and caring. She even called the next day to see how I was doing. I can defiantly say my fear of dentist has gone way down, and that is all due to Dr. Izadi and the staff of West End Dental. Once everything is cleared up, I plan on going back and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr Kim and Dr Izadi are wonderful and also the staff. They all are friendly and makes you feel comfortable. This office is very clean and very pleasant. Dr Kim has been my Dentist for 2 months and so far so good. I have no complaints. West End Dental makes you want to keep coming back! I would highly recommend.

Dr. Izadi is amazing! He has done orthodontic work on both myself and my son. We have recommended him to several friends and neighbors. He is very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and honest. His office is immaculate. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. State of the art equipment. Appointments are easy to schedule. Payment plans are available. Highly recommend Dr. Izadi!

Frank W. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


Let me first start off by saying that I do not like going to the dentist. However, I have found the nicest dental office in all of my 40 years. I grew up with a lot of dental issues so I have seen a dentist regularly for decades. What makes this office different is how well they treat their patinents and the time they dedicate to them. From my first encounter with the front desk, to the hygienist, to the dentist herself, everyone was so kind and accommodating… They even got me in for a 7:15 appointment so I wouldn’t be late for work. My coworker recommended me here because she had some dental work done by Dr. I and was very happy with the results. Even though I’m in northern VA, I believe it’s worth the metro ride to go to a doctors office where they value your time , give you good customer service, and quality work. The doctor even called me after my procedure to see how I was feeling..I’ve never had that done before!

I have been a patient at West End Dental for approximately three years. To say that the doctors and staff are extremely competent, knowledgable in all things dentistry (and medical administration in general), and friendly would be putting it mildly. I have enjoyed each and every visit to the practice, whether it is for a regular cleaning or having a new crown put in. The office is very accessible by public transportation and is clean and organized. Furthermore, and most importantly, Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim take the time to get to know their patients personally, and they always have a smile on their face. I trust them wholeheartedly with my dental needs, and I look forward to being a patient of theirs for many more years to come.

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


I’ve been through many dentists, and West End Dental is definitely my favorite. It’s easy to get appointment times you want, and they run on-time. Dr. Izadi is really great — she remembers you on a personal level, and she has helped me get my mouth in order. I’ve had fillings done and teeth whitening with West End Detnal, and couldn’t be happier. Definitely recommend!

Rosie U. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Izadi for the last year, and highly recommend her! She is patient and understanding, and answers all questions in detail. I went to her most recently for a cleaning and to get a mouthguard, which required a fitting, and the process was very smooth and professional. My mouthguard also arrived very quickly. And a bonus: She always leaves you with great goodie bags with toothpastes, toothbrushes, mouthwash, etc. Some of my family members go to Dr. Izadi as well, and I definitely trust her with my dental care.

Best dentists in DC! I’ve been going to West End Dental for around 5 years. They have helped me through cavities, teeth cleanings, night guards, and a root canal. Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim are top-notch dentists and they truly care about their patients. The staff are friendly and professional, the office is always clean, and I always leave their office in good spirits.

Benjamin Rance (Source: Google)


I’ve been a patient at West End Dental with Dr. Izadi for over 4 years and I have been nothing but impressed and happy with the service, kindness and treatment I’ve received. The staff are very nice, helpful and care about you as a person, not just your teeth! Dr. Izadi has taken the time to get to know me, and asks about my life outside of dentist stuff every time I visit. I’ve recommended multiple people to this office, and would do so again without hesitation. Great office, amazing people and even better dental service.

Rachel A. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Where to begin!! Dr. Izadi is wonderful!! She is a kind person and an excellent, professional dentist, who is genuinely concerned for her patients. She will take the time to listen to you and not be rushed like many dentists/doctors that I have been to. I found Dr. Izadi through my insurance (yes, they take insurance). I called up and the friendly staff was able to schedule me for an appointment soon after I had called. I was pretty nervous to find a new dentist because I had had the same one for 10 years and he retired. But I wish I had found Dr. Izadi sooner! I went in for a cleaning and also needed some other dental work done. She did excellent work and also took the time to explain things to me. I have since been back a few times- one time to get cavities drilled, which I hate, but she was extremely gentle and I barely felt it. I have also had issues with my bite- Dr. Izadi helped me with that and also gave me referrals to other dental specialists. I highly recommend Dr. Izadi to anyone and everyone in the area. I can not emphasize enough how wonderful she is!! O and I almost forgot- she also emails back and forth with patients. After an appointment she emailed to ask me how I was doing! Amazing!!

Since moving to D.C. two months ago, everyone in this city has been so nice and the West End Dental crew is no exception! I’m always a little wary at the dentist since I don’t know what to expect, but Dr. Izadi made me feel welcome and comfortable in her chair; she was so friendly and quick to spot the issue and explain it to me clearly. I didn’t have to wait at all past my set appointment time, and Debra at the front desk was super friendly as well and awesome at answering all my questions and fitting me into the schedule on short notice. I’m so glad to have found a great dentist in my new city, so I will definitely be coming back!

Cece C. from Baltimore, MD (Source: Yelp)


Awesome experience at West end dental. I was visiting the DC area with my family over the weekend and my father ended up chipping at tooth over lunch on friday. I found Dr. Izadi’s office because of the awesome reviews already on yelp, and I’m so glad I went with her since I couldn’t go back to my usual dentist. I was able to schedule an emergency appointment with ease and Dr. Izadi was able to see my father the same day. Her staff is super friendly and incredibly welcoming and understanding considering our circumstances. I would recommend West end dental to all of my family and friends in the DC area!

Christin C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Izadi for years even before she set up an office in D.C. I live in LA now, but I still come back to her to everytime I come back to visit home. She treated my very first cavity (which I was freaking out about – never had my teeth drilled) and she was awesome. Very gentle and reassuring. Good dentists are hard to find and she’s the best one I’ve had.

Lee P. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Izadi for a couple of years now. I like the fact that it’s a nice sized practice, and isn’t so big that you have to get in line to get an appointment when you have an urgent matter. The people in the practice are friendly and professional and you don’t feel like a cog in a wheel. (Are you sensing a theme here?) At any rate, Dr. Izadi is very good, I’ve seen her for both routine cleanings and for special teeth issues, and she’s been excellent all around. I hope I can continue to use West End Dental in the future.

L D. from West End, Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


BEST dental experience I have ever had. I’ve had a number of horrible dentists and West End Dental was a refreshing and welcomed change with amazing dentists!! The staff was super friendly and verified that they took my insurance. Office had flexible appointments which worked with my busy schedule! The office was super clean, up to date and modern. Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim were amazing! It was so refreshing to be treated by an actual dentist and not some dental assistant. I initially went to Dr. Izadi for a cleaning after a HORRIBLE experience at another dental clinic nearby. Dr. Izadi spotted my cavities right away. Dr. Kim even came in for a consult and they saved me from having a root canal (few)l. Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim did a great job of diagnosing my toothache, filling in my cavities and saving my tooth from a root canal! I had the pleasure of having both Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim working on my cavities. This is the first time in my life that I did not feel pain while having dental work done. I’m no longer scared to go to the dentist and getting my cavities filled was not the horrible experience that I had undergone so many times before. The dentists were super professional and polite, explained everything to me clearly, and didn’t try to upcharge me for anything or force services on me I didn’t need. I also got whitening trays made for teeth bleaching. Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim had West End Dental had them ready within 24 hours (which was amazing because I needed them ASAP for a wedding). The office is super convenient to get to since its located by both an orange/blue line metro stop and red line metro stop. Could not be a better location for working downtown by Farragut or living in Dupont/West End/Georgetown/Foggy Bottom. Plus its super close to my gym at SCLA! I have found my permanent dentists here and will continue being a patient even if I move!! I give Dr. Izadi, Dr. Kim and West End Dental an A++++++

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


It is very difficult to find a great dentist in the city and I am VERY glad to have been referred to Dr. Izadi at West End Dental!!!  She is quite simply PHENOMENAL!  Everything about this dental practice is top notch, from my initial phone interaction with Maria to my experience completing my dental paperwork and bitewings with Kenya.  After my cleaning Dr. Izadi sent a very thoughtful follow up note and offered for me to contract her with any questions or issues I might have following my appointment.  I hardly say I’m looking forward to seeing my dentist again, but it is such a pleasure with West End Dental that this is indeed the case.  If you are looking for a great dentist in DC go there right away!!!

Rolf P. from Takoma Park, MD (Source: Yelp)


My visit yesterday with Dr. Izadi was for an extraction of a crowned tooth that broke off a couple weeks ago.There wasn’t much left for her to grab onto for the extraction so she had to drill away carefully until she got to a point where she could pop the root out. She did such a good job that I needed only ibuprofen to take care of the pain, but she also had enough foresight to prescribe stronger painkillers tpo. Unfortunately the scrips needed control numbers that weren’t printed on them, so when we got to the pharmacy I had to text Dr. Izadi (she gave me her cell number) to let her know. She was already on her way home from the office but she turned around and went back and phoned in the number. This morning she texted me to find out how I’m doing. This is probably the best health care experience I’ve ever had.

I’ve never been a huge fan of the dentist’s office, but West End Dental has changed my mind. Dr. Izadi spends significant amounts of time with patients and is fantastic at patient interactions and (as far as I can tell) the technical aspects of her job. Billing is clear and consistent. The office staff is professional and flexible and there never are waiting room delays. The office is well-located (certainly for me, but likely for many others as well) and they are always able to get me in over lunch. I really cannot ask more from the experience.

This was my first visit to West End Dental, and Mr. Kim was super nice and very informative. He was detailed when going through my x-rays and made sure I understood everything. He also did an amazing job with my cleaning. The office staff was very professional and helpful as well. I really enjoyed my visit and am glad I decided to give this place a try.

Mary R. from Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad that I went to West End Dental.  Amazing dental office.  I am a dental phobe and have been putting off getting work that I need for years.  Dr. Izadi and her staff got me through it in a way I never thought it is possible.  I will never go anywhere else.  I actually look forward to my next appointments.  I could not ask for a better dental office.  The BEST!!!

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


By far the best dentist that I have ever been been to. Dr. Izadi is very knowledgable, polite, prompt, and SUPER nice. She and her staff go out of their way to make sure you have an excellent experience at their office. I recommend West End Dental to my friends all the time and would not think of going anywhere else in the city.

Lauren C. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I so enjoyed my visit to West End Dental.  I was warmly greeted to the practice and the environment was inviting and relaxed.  The dental assistant was kind and very skilled and I felt like I was in good hands with her while she did my x-rays.  I was very surprised that it was Dr. Izadi who actually did my cleaning, though!  Usually you only get 5 minutes with the dentist, but she was very hands-on and made me feel at ease.  She listened to my concerns and made me feel very welcome.  I’m so glad I chose to go to West End!  I’ve officially found my dentist in DC!

Brenna Maloney (Source: Google)


Dr. Izadi and Dr. Kim are two of the best dentists ON THE PLANET. I grew up in the generation where dentists used fear, threats, and rusty hooks (or so it seemed) to ply their trade. If you have anxiety about dentists, this is place to go. They are extremely skilled; they use the latest technology and techniques. But they are also both extremely kind and supportive doctors. They really care about their patients. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Emalie Townley (Source: Google)


My husband and I did a lot of research before choosing to go to West End Dental as he had some extensive work necessary (and it had been years since he had seen a dentist), and I wanted a reliable place to go to for any/all our needs. We love it! Office staff (Lydia) is so friendly and helpful, and Dr. Izadi is always kind, listens to questions, and goes to bat for her patients when insurance is less-than helpful. The Drs there all seem to respect/help each other, and the nurse techs are gentle and careful. Couldn’t ask for more!

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


Dr. Izadi is wonderful!  I grew up in the area and had been going to the same dentist for a long time.  My old dentist wasn’t conveniently located for me anymore, and I finally switched to West End Dental – I was shocked at the difference!  With a friendly smile, a professional attitude, and up to date technology, Dr. Izadi is leaps and bounds better than my old dentist!  I recommend her to everyone in search of a new dentist.

Victoria A. from Hyattsville, MD (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE West End Dental. After going to various dentists and being highly disheartened I am SO lucky I found Dr. Izadi. Dr. Izadi and company (Kenya and Maria) are the sweetest people and good at their job. Maria, the receptionist is super nice, has never made me wait forever for an appointment (which most dental offices will book you two week to a month down the road!) and works with you to give you an appointment ASAP and at a time that works for you. Kenya, the dental assistant, is young but is very intelligent and quick with helping Dr. Izadi. And Dr. Izadi is the sweetest dentist I’ve ever had. Friendly (hard to find), cares about your concerns (hard to find). I had a bad cavity and needed to get a crown, then I had pain and needed a specialized root canal, she sent me to a specialist then REPLACED the crown and made sure I wasn’t in any pain afterwards all for one price (you know some dentists would charge you twice and then some). She knew I was on a budget so she worked with me….I didn’t have insurance so had to pay out of pocket so they worked with me! So nice of them because I don’t know what I would have done if they hadn’t been flexible! LOVE THEM. So lucky I finally found a dentist I can trust to care about my dental health and not just money in their pocket. It’s a shame that more doctors don’t realize that being nice is the way to keep customers…and in turn more money in their pocket long run.

David F. from Derwood, MD (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here since the practice started at this location and it is a fantastic place.  The office manager Maria is wonderful and she is always helpful and cheery.  Dr. Izadi is fantastic. She knows her stuff. I have gotten a mouth guard and crowns done here and after the crowns she emailed and to make sure I was feeling well. When  I had an issue with one of them she was able to fit me into the schedule and took great care of me. I highly recommend this dental office for anyone new to the city or someone wanting a great dental office.

Jimmy G. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


I am a student at a university in the DC area.  I was told I needed a root canal at home, but it was too late to do it there, so I found West End Dental on the internet.  The reviews were great, but I didn’t expect my experience to live up to the hype.  Not only did my visits live up to the hype, but I actually had the most pleasant and pain-free experiences I have ever had dealing with dental work.  Everything that I was curious about was explained to me and Dr. Izadi could not have been nicer.  I was relaxed during my two procedures – one for a temporary medication filling and the other for the permanent filling – because of the lovely music playing softly in the background.  They were understandable and kind about scheduling around my heavy work and class schedule.  I would recommend West End Dental to anyone who is seeking a new or better dentist in the DC area.

Alan Perry (Source: Google)


Dr. Izadi and her staff are always very knowledgeable and welcoming. Dr. Izadi always tells me about problems as they emerge / as soon as she identifies them rather than after it’s too late. I have been seeing her for 8 years now and I’m so much better off! My prior dentists seemed great but they did not monitor for grinding or give me specific candid instructions about how I was brushing and flossing incorrectly. Luckily I found Dr Izadi before too much grinding damage had been done. I highly recommend Dr Izadi. And Dr Kim is great too (seen him a few times when Dr Izadi has been out)!

Every time I go to West End Dental, I have a super-pleasant, easy experience. The office is open early, which is great for working professionals. I’ve never had to wait to see the dentist; I’m taken back immediately once I arrive. I appreciate Dr. Izadi’s really explanatory method of dentistry; she always explains in very clear language what all the tools and sounds do and mean. I’m not afraid of the dentist, but do appreciate knowing what’s coming next! Overall, very straightforward, clean, friendly, convenient service. I love it.

Stephanie G. from MD, MD (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Izadi! She is incredibly kind and is an amazing dentist. I had been going to her practice for years, but when I changed jobs across town, I tried another dentist close to my office. BIG MISTAKE. I was told I needed work done which did not seem right, so I decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Izadi.  Turns out the new dentist was completely wrong, and I was so thankful for Dr. Izadi’s care.  She is well worth the metro ride across town, and I will be sure to return promptly in six months.  On a side note, she really is just a great person- I had not been there for years and she remembered my husband’s name, where he worked, that we have a son, etc.  That says a LOT about her character.  As long as she is around, she has a patient in me.  🙂

Jean L. from McLean, VA (Source: Yelp)


Had to call for an emergency appointment and they squeezed me in the same day! Unfortunately had to have a tooth extracted but Dr Izadi was gentle and made me feel comfortable as possible. She explained exactly what was to be done and numbed me really well. Later that night called to see how I was doing. I really appreciated that.

Rachel N. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


It’s weird to admit this, but I actually ENJOY going to the dentist thanks to Dr. Izadi! She is kind, attentive to detail, and clearly cares about her patients. I wish everyone could find a dentist like her! To boot, her staff is likewise friendly and great at what they do. If you’re in DC, this is the place to go for your dentistry needs!

Payton Stone (Source: Google)


This is an update since I had to go back for some dental work. I really appreciated that I got an estimate of the work to be done before my appointment. It allowed me to budget correctly and not be stuck with a huge bill at the end. They are great making you feel comfortable and relaxed in a dental office…something that you usually don’t get when your in a doctors office. The music is so soothing and the office smells like cinnamon! Not the typical dentist office smell. The procedure was painless and the filling on. Y front tooth looks great( no one can even tell I have it) I highly recommend Dr Izadi and West End a Dental…you won’t be disappointed

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


I was referred to West End Dental by a coworker happy with West End Dental, whose whole family are patients. I’ve been a patient there for a year and I’m very happy with the work I’ve had done. The staff is very personable, and they are incredibly accommodating. Dr. Izadi is very professional and I’ve been very happy with the work I’ve had done. In addition to being a skilled dentist, she has a very pleasant bed side manor. They didn’t make me feel guilty when I first came in and hadn’t been to the dentist in awhile and they are very conservative in their recommendations. As a result of their positive and practical care, I don’t mind going at all, haven’t missed an appointment, and take better care of my teeth in general. The whole staff is personable and makes you feel like a valued patient. Maria in the front office is very friendly and warm and always seems to remember the patients. They made the insurance process incredibly painless for me. Finally, they do early morning appointments to accommodate people’s work schedules. Being able to fit in an appointment before work and not being stressed about making it to the office in time is really nice. The practice is an easy walk from the metro stop, making it easily accessible.
