Four Points to Successful Dentistry in Arlington, Virginia

Attaining and preserving a brilliant smile isn't an accident. Follow these points to make your smile a worthwhile investment!

We’ve broken down successful and satisfying dentistry into four points; planning, foundation, precision, and maintenance. Not all dentistry is equal, and these are some of the most important factors that determine the success of your treatment. We believe that if you approach your treatment with these points in mind, you’ll enjoy a first-class smile.


This is where cases either succeed or fail. This phase breaks down into two parts; assessing your current situation, and identifying where you want to be.

Identifying where you are now

This involves getting an accurate diagnosis of the current condition of the following:

  • Teeth
  • Gum
  • Bone
  • Bite
  • Smile
  • Oral health

Identifying where you want to be

Once we establish your current condition, we can identify your goals. When we understand your expectations, priorities, and desired outcome we can begin to shape the process to reach your goals. This involves outlining the following:

  • Realistic timeline
  • Budget
  • Any necessary external evaluations or therapy


Next, we make sure that your treatment is built on a healthy, solid foundation. That means making sure gum tissue, bone tissue, bone and tooth structure are healthy.

Possible procedures to improve your oral health may include:

  • Sinus augmentation
  • Joint therapy
  • Oral surgery
  • Soft or hard tissue grafting
  • Tooth movement
  • Implant placement
  • Removal of inadequate tissues


This is a factor we are most proud of, and what separates us from the rest. You’ll notice this only after your treatment is completed. Precision refers to uncompromising attention to detail and having the ability to execute that detail. Precision, coupled with advanced technique, modern equipment, an innovative laboratory, and master ceramist will deliver a beautiful end result that you can be proud of.
