Patient Reviews

I could not have picked a better dentist in Washington DC! Dr Marlin is the best. I live in Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase MD area. Dr Marlin and his team gave me back my smile in a couple of weeks! I am so happy with the results! I had serious dental issues and was missing a few teeth including in the front. The use of their sedation to ease pain and stress was crucial for me to go through this journey with peace of mind and I literally felt nothing during my multiple sessions/procedures. Dr Marlin and his team did an amazing job and I can’t thank them enough for their kindness and care during and after my procedures! I would highly recommend this practice! Simply the best!

I am so very grateful for Dr. Marlin and his dental team. I did some research before choosing him, and this has surely been one of the best choices in my life. This was over three years ago. I have had a lot of work done on my mouth and teeth. I had a bone transplant and implants and bridges. It has been a long journey, but I sincerely enjoyed the whole process. I always enjoyed and looked forward to the days spent in the treatment chair. I never once felt like I was rushed or that I was just a number, on the contrary, I always felt like I was family and the only patient. It was always evident that Dr. Marlin is a genius and I am so fortunate that I was and am in his care.

Dr. Marlin is truly a virtuoso of his profession. I went to him requesting correction of dental work done elsewhere. In a one-day marathon, he replaced five old/faulty crowns and a bridge with six meticulously crafted temporaries. With the permanent crowns now installed, my bite is correctly aligned and the new crowns, made in his in-house lab, beautifully match the neighboring teeth. The restoration process took place over 8 months, was pain-free, and included seamlessly coordinated referrals to a periodontist and endodontist. Dr. Marlin’s good humor and the kind attention of his staff were much appreciated. Experiencing this level of expertise, perfectionism and artistry gave me a reason to smile, indeed.

- -Vitals Review

I have been coming to Dr. Marlin's dental practice for 20+ years. Everyone at the practice is great and treats me like family. Dr. Marlin and his team have always been there for my routine items, but when I have had an emergency dental treatment they have brought me in right away. With the lab in-house I have always received my oral appliances quickly. I appreciate the extra time he takes to make sure I have a proper understanding of how to keep my teeth and gums in great shape. I highly recommend the dental team and Dr. Marlin.

- - Greg on Google

I have been going to Dr. Marlin for 33 years and have been very happy. Dr. Marlin holds himself and his staff to very high standards of excellence, and he trains his dental team accordingly. After each dental procedure, Dr. Marlin makes sure your bite is perfect. I’ve had good teeth until recently when I had to get three crowns. Dr. Marlin worked tirelessly to make sure both temporary and permanent crowns fitted perfectly. All the staff is friendly and makes every effort to make you comfortable and provide excellent care.

Ultimate Smile Makeover

Also referred to as a cosmetic makeover, an ultimate smile makeover simultaneously addresses multiple complex aesthetic and structural issues. As such, the ultimate smile or cosmetic makeover is more than just a cosmetic dental service in that it can also treat undiagnosed decay under existing restorations, broken teeth, or bite irregularities, and also restore strength and function to teeth that have been adversely impacted by other dental issues.

We offer a refined version of the All-on-4® Type of Implant Therapy. Rather than the usual and customary bone reduction, we actually utilize bone preservation, providing our patients with greater long-term security. The result is a very happy and secure patient.

Veneers are thin, customized ceramic shells fixed to your tooth’s front surface to conceal various aesthetic issues. Crowns, also known as “caps,” are placed over teeth that have been compromised through trauma, infection, or decay. Veneers are contraindicated when teeth are too dark or have large restorations under them. Dr. Marlin can customize crowns and/or veneers to your preferences and goals.
