The Air-Flow Polisher is a compact but comprehensive dental cleaning technology that combines the use of compressed air, fine powder particles, and water to polish your teeth quickly and without direct contact. In heavy contrast to the manual scraping techniques of yesterday, the Air-Flow Polisher uses a very strong current of water to remove bacteria and plaque without heat, noise, or discomfort. As the first and only practice in the area to use this technology, Washington Center for Dentistry remains a step above the rest as it pertains to remaining at the forefront of modern advances in the industry.
What Makes it Revolutionary?
Perhaps the most revolutionary aspects of the Air-Flow Polisher include speed and effectiveness. The polisher works three times faster than manual techniques and removes nearly 100% of harmful bacteria in the process. The power-wash action also helps to remove stains caused by foods and beverages while protecting your teeth against sensitivity, scraping, rubbing, or harsh tools. The strong jet of water released by the applicator removes the bacteria responsible for inflammation and infection, reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth loss.
What are the Benefits?
A few of the incredible benefits of the Air-Flow Polisher include:
- Deep cleaning up to 5mm deep into the periodontal pockets
- Reduction of tooth sensitivity
- Re-mineralizing of damaged teeth
- Removal of up to 100% of plaque and bacteria
- No need for scraping or hand tools

Air-Flow Polisher Reviews
"I'll second (third?) the recommendations of the others. I've been going to Dr Doctors since they used to have their offices a block away from my office (now they moved to 15th and K st NW). I initially went there because it was close to my office and Dr D was in the Washingtonian as one of the best dentists in DC. The place is very nice and modern (it looks like a spa). The staff is very helpful an polite Dr Doctors is the best. He is very friendly and patient and takes the time to explain the procedures carefully so that you aren't nervous. The office is very computerized and high-tech. The only negative thing I will say is that if you are just going for a routine cleaning, some of the hygenists are better than others, but other than that it's a great place. I've recommended this place to numerous friends of mine."- F.E. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2009
"I haven't been to a dentist in 5 years. I thought they would have berated me, but they were nice and didn't make much of an issue of it. I had to have xrays, which were with a new machine that was strange. I didn't like it too much, but I could see how it would be preferable to have the xrays right in the room as opposed to having to stand with the big machine around your head. I had a cleaning done, and it wasn't painful at all. The technician was gentle. The only thing I dislike about them is having to pay up front and then get reimbursed from my insurance. That's going to be expensive and I wish I didn't have to do it this way, but they're nice enough and talented enough that it's worth it."- Google User / Google / Jun 23, 2012
"This is a great dental office, I had a great cleaning done this morning - I mean I almost don't want to eat it feels so darn good (and food is one of my greatest loves!) They are very thorough and friendly. The office is absolutely beautiful, serene like a spa with candles burning, wood paneling, and complimentary water and juice. I met with Dr. Yu and she was very intelligent and friendly. This was as pleasant an experience as you can hope for with a dentist, and I would recommend it to anyone!"- H.C. / Yelp / Mar 23, 2010
"I have a mild dentist phobia stemming from more than a couple bad experiences with cavities and teeth-pulling as a child. This place has soundly squashed all my dentist fears. From the second I walked in, I was treated like I owned the place. My hygienist was fantastic. She was gentle, thorough, and very knowledgeable. Dr Telis was very friendly as well and he made me feel as if I had been his patient for years. I hadn't been to the dentist in a while (see above) and was prepared for the obligatory lecture about how I need to be seen every 6 months if I want healthy teeth. There was none of the lecturing I expected and, believe it or not, I can't wait to go back for my next cleaning. I had no idea going to the dentist could be such a pleasant experience!"- E.W. / Yelp / Sep 08, 2010
"As a recent transplant to the area, I've been dreading the eventual visit to the dentist. Alas, it was time. I had no idea where to turn to find a decent dentist so THANKS AGAIN YELP for pointing me to this practice. My apointment was yesterday and I couldn't wait to YELP about it. This is the best dental practice I have ever been too. Top notch all the way. I don't really know how to describe it other then, I wasn't sure if I was in a dental office or a spa. Awesome. I flaked and forgot to fill out the forms online so I was totally expecting to have to spend another 20 minutes filling out paper forms, wasting my time, but NO! They have free internet and computers you can use OR they handed me the Ipad to do it on. Pretty SWEET! Once the forms were filled out, I got the tour (YES, A TOUR!) and then was guided to my dental tech. I still wasn't sure I wasn't also getting a massage. The dental tech was great. Professional, personably and kind. She also really seemed to like her job and the place she worked which is also a nice change from my last dentist who didn't even HAVE a tech to do cleanings and xrays. She asked alot of questions and while I do not have any dentist nightmares of lore, I can rest assured it will stay that way for a long time! Pretty sure this is my dental practice for life, even if I move. The only catch, which I can imagine is hard for many people, is that you pay upfront and get reimbursed by your insurance. I'm ok with that but I don't know many people who can be out that cash up front. I would recommend saving your pennies though, this dentist is TOTALLY WORTH IT."- N.F. / Yelp / Mar 17, 2011
