Thank you letter of the week :-)))

I give Dr. Gentry my highest recommendation. He has been my dentist (and also my wife’s) for over 20 years. We started with him while we lived in Arlington but he is so good we decided to stay with him after moving out to Fairfax. He has only done dental work that is absolutely necessary, and his expertise and skill has actually saved at least two of my teeth from having to be extracted (despite two dental specialists who claimed the opposite) and Dr. Gentry also saved me from a root canal; instead, having filled the cavity instead. The procedures went so smoothly and were done so expertly that I had absolutely no pain and could eat immediately. Dr. Gentry takes great pride in his work; he has repeatedly said “fixing teeth is what I do” and he is a widely-recognized expert who also is dedicated to teaching aspiring dentists as well. Now THAT is skill and dedication! He has a great personality; always friendly and cheerful and ready to help. I also highly recommend his professional staff: Juany, Carolina, Karla, Alicia, and Galdia; all are extraordinarily friendly, helpful and professional. I intend to be a patient of Dr. Gentry’s for as long as he continues to practice; you WILL be pleased with Dr. Gentry as your dentist as well.

A patient I made very happy and a very rewarding case for me.

This is why I became a dentist! To help people look and feel better.  When I first saw her, she  would never smile because she was embarrassed and uncomfortable with the way her teeth looked. She told me she just wanted to be happy and smile again. After I finisher her treatment you can see how wonderful, confident, and happy she looks. This is why I love being a dentist and why I go to work every day!!!


Dear Dr. Gentry,                                                                                                                                                       Thank you very much for fixing my teeth. You are the best dentist! You have made me able to smile again, and make me feel so good with my beautiful new teeth.                       

Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                                                 Marcella Giovannetti

Thank you letter from one of my patients last week :-)))

For 44 years, I have been practicing dental hygiene in Virginia.  Recently I had to have a crown prep done on #8 and a replacement crown on #9.  My first crown on #9 was stainless steel, placed at age 7 in 1958.  Since then this tooth has had 14 replacement crowns that improved the appearance as dental materials progressed over the years.
My new ones though are the best I’ve ever had made.  The contacts, size, shape, color & occlusion are perfect and needed no adjustments when they were delivered.  I experienced no discomfort during the procedure, even while wearing the temporaries.
I have seen thousands of crowns & fillings by hundreds of dentists over my long career and Dr. Gentry’s work surpasses them all.  He is extremely attentive to detail.  The perfect fit and aesthetics are evident in every restoration he does.  I have no reservations in recommending his work to family, friends & current patients.  His sensitivity and approach while interacting with patients is a model for all individuals interested in entering the profession.
I truly feel he is deserving of the recognition equal to his daily accomplishments in the field of dentistry. As a dental hygienist with 44 years of private practice experience, I know who the best dentists are, and Dr. Gentry is one of the best!
I highly recommend Dr. Gentry. His dental work is the best I have seen.
