A Modern Approach to Dentistry

The Choosiest Patients Choose Us

Voted Washington’s “Top Dental Experience” for more than 30 Years, the Washington Center for Dentistry welcomes demanding patients because we demand more of ourselves. Our office never stands still. Modern dentistry is always on the move—and so are we—in a never-ending pursuit of science, technology and artistic skill. We admit. It’s our passion!

Our patients seek us out for innovation and excellence. And here are some of the ways we deliver: The DC Region’s only 21st Century-designed “Air-Flow Polisher” painlessly super-cleans bacteria under the gumline. The newest “Saliva Test” finds mouth pathogens dangerous to whole-body health. A “Digital Smile Design System” uses computerized measurements and proprietary metrics to enhance the smile creation process.

Highly Skilled, Scientific Approach.

Having placed thousands of porcelain veneers and crowns—to create thousands of new smiles—our dentists every year are voted "Top Dentists" in Washingtonian Magazine, and The Washington Post states that our office "sets the bar, with its soothing atmosphere and latest in high-tech equipment."

And you won’t be surprised to learn that all of our dentists have earned dental degrees from the finest institutions in the nation. Their professional careers are dedicated to studying with top dental educators, with a commitment to "complete dentistry" vs. "repair dentistry." This concept focuses on total treatment, rather than treating one dental problem at a time.

"Eman worked with me and she was amazingly vibrant and so customer oriented! Came for whitening, she far exceeded my expectations and I’ll be returning later!!"



"As we all know, moving out of state can be stressful, especially locating new medical professionals. When I experienced excruciating dental pain, I needed to quickly find a dentist to take a look at my tooth. I did a quick google search for a dentist in D.C. and Washington Center for Dentistry was the first dental office that appeared in my search. I completed the online intake form and within minutes I received a very pleasant call from Michelle. In speaking with her, something told me I was already in good care. She introduced the practice, the dentists, the mission and most importantly the care I would receive      6"



"The Washington Center for Dentistry is a very impressive group indeed; It all begins with a beautiful, large, and comfortable open sign-in and waiting area with an eye-popping view of K street from the 8th floor. The doctors and staff are dedicated, focused, and personable, and the goal is clearly the very best dental care. This, for me, came in the skills and very pleasant demeanor of Dr. Elana Shlansky whose insistence on perfection soon revealed itself as a kind of signature. All very agreeable! The whole Washington Center for Dentistry package is extraordinary! Take your mouth there! you won't regret it."



"The Washington Center for Dentistry is a VERY impressive group indeed. Beautiful, large, and comfortable open sign-in and waiting area with an eye-popping view of K street from the 8th floor. The Doctors and staff are dedicated, focused, efficient without being distant, and the goal is, from my own experience with them, always perfection....numerous appointments to get things just right. The whole package is extraordinary! Take your mouth there! you won't regret it."



"Switched to this dentistry on the recommendation of a friend, seeking a practice with hygienists and several dentists. They were easy to contact and making appointment was handled quickly and easily. Upon arrival, treated very professionally and personally. My hygienist explained everything she was doing and was excellent. Dr. Deutche came in as soon as she was finished and went completely over my X-rays, explaining what he was seeing. Everything was handled quickly, efficiently and pleasantly. A great first visit."
