What Sets an Arlington, VA Affordable Dentist Apart From the Crowd

We are Arlington, VA’s most affordable dentist. If you’ve been looking for a new dental practice to see to your family’s oral health and cosmetic dentistry needs, we think you’ll like all the things we have to offer.

Here are just a few of the things that set us apart from the crowd:

#1 – We Work With an Amazing Number of Insurers

One of the keys to being Arlington, VA’s most affordable dentist has been our commitment to expand the number of insurance carriers we work with. After all, if we take the dental insurance you’ve got, that’s going to reduce your out of pocket expenses, by definition, so it really matters.

Right now, we work with the following dental insurance companies:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Assurant
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Carefirst
  • Cigna (their Total DPPO plan)
  • Delta Dental
  • GEHA
  • Guardian
  • Lincoln Financial Group
  • Metlife
  • Principal
  • Sun Life
  • And United Concordia

Don’t worry if you didn’t see your insurance company on the list above, because we also accept both the Citi Health Flexible Monthly Payment Option and Care Credit.

If you’ve never heard of, or don’t have either of those, we can enroll you in our Platinum Membership Program which offers generous discounts on most of the services we provide. What else would you expect from Arlington, VA’s most affordable dentist?

#2 – We’re One Stop Shopping For All Your Dental Needs

It’s not enough to work with lots of insurance companies and offer plenty of ways to pay. That’s a good start, but let’s face it, it doesn’t matter if we accept your insurance if we don’t offer the services you want and need.

The good news is that we’ve got one of the most robust, comprehensive service offerings in the area. Here are just some of the things we can do for you and your family:

  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • Dental Implants
  • Dentures and Partials
  • Sedation Dentistry
  • Root Canals
  • Metal-Free Crowns
  • Preventive Care
  • Gum Care
  • Infection Control
  • Three Different Teeth Whitening Options:
    • Our Zoom! In-Office Whitening Treatment
    • The Whitening For Life Program
    • Our Kor Whitening System
  • Two Outstanding Alternatives To Adult Braces:
    • The Six Month Smiles Program
    • The Invisalign Program
  • And so much more!

You’re probably familiar with most of those, but we’ll spend a bit of time talking about our teeth whitening and adult braces options since not every dental practice offers as broad a range as we do.

Our In-Office Whitening Treatment

While every dental practice offers some form of in-office whitening service, as Arlington, VA’s most affordable dentist, ours is not just fast and effective, but it’s one of the best values in the area. In the space of just one visit, we guarantee we’ll whiten your teeth by up to eight shades.

Sure, you can get similar results using over the counter products, but to do so, you’d have to use them for up to eight weeks. Who wants to do that when there’s a much more convenient option available?

The Whitening For Life Program

An incredibly popular program that lets you whiten your teeth whenever you want, from the comfort of home.

When you first sign up, we’ll ask you to come in so we can take an impression of your teeth, which we’ll use to create custom bleaching trays for you. Once we’ve got the trays ready, we’ll give them to you, along with a tube of our powerful bleaching gel and instructions on its use.

Best of all, as long as you stay current with your preventive care visits, every six months, you’ll get another tube of whitening gel for free!

The Kor Whitening System

Our most powerful whitening option, designed to tackle deep stains that other whitening treatments can’t handle. It works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, and unlike the other two we talked about earlier, this one’s effects are permanent. And of course, as Arlington, VA’s most affordable dentist, the service is offered at a price you’ll love too!

The Six Month Smiles Program

Conventional braces have lots of disadvantages. One of the major ones is the fact that they take a long time to straighten your teeth.

The braces used in this program are so much faster because they take your slow-moving back teeth out of the equation. Even better, these braces are virtually invisible, so not only will you not have to wear them for nearly as long but while you are wearing them, you won’t be nearly as self-conscious. Talk about win-win!


We’re thrilled to offer this braces alternative to our patients. It’s cutting-edge technology that straightens your teeth without using braces at all. Invisalign uses a series of nearly invisible caps that, when worn sequentially, will serve to progressively straighten your teeth.

When you sign up for this program, the first thing we’ll do is ask you to come by the office so we can take a series of detailed, 3D scans of your teeth. We’ll use these scans to create the caps in a process that takes about a week.

Once we’ve got the caps back from our manufacturer, we’ll ask you to come back to the office so we can fit you with your first set of caps. From there, we’ll ask you to come back in about every two weeks so we can give you the next set, swapping them out with the old ones.

Invisalign caps have two big advantages over conventional braces. First, they’re virtually invisible. At first, or even second glance, when you’re wearing them, people probably won’t even notice.

Best of all though is the second advantage: You can take them out and put them back in yourself. Think about what that means, and the flexibility that gives you.

If you’ve got an important function to attend, or if you have a hot date, it’s a trivial matter to pop them out for a couple of hours, then put them back in again when you get home. If you like, you could even choose to only wear your caps while you sleep, but of course, if you opt to do that, it’s going to take longer than usual to straighten your teeth.

Even so, that kind of flexibility is amazing, and something you simply can’t do with braces of any kind, including the braces used in the Six Month Smiles program we just talked about. That’s why so many people love it!

#3 – We’re Open Late

It’s not enough for us to simply be Arlington, VA’s affordable dentist of choice. In order to truly set ourselves apart, we have to do more.

Our solution to that is to be considerate of our patients’ time. We know it’s no fun to have to go to the dentist, and we know it’s even worse when you have to miss work to do it. That’s why we keep our doors open late several days a week. With a bit of planning, you won’t have to miss work at all.

Currently, our office hours are as follows:

Monday: 8:00 AM – 7:00 PM

Tuesday: 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM

Wednesday: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Thursday: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Friday: 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Saturday: 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Sunday: (Our office is closed on Sundays)

#4 – We Offer Lots of Extras With Your Comfort in Mind

Most dental practices have up to date, if not state-of-the-art treatment rooms, and we’re no different, but again, we take things a step further, always keeping your comfort in the forefront of our minds. That’s why we offer things like:

  • TVs in all our treatment rooms
  • Headphones available to any patient who wants them
  • And warm blankets to make you feel more comfortable and perhaps even a bit like you’re resting at home while we do our work

This, of course, in addition to our sedation dentistry services we mentioned earlier, offered to our particularly fearful patients who need a little something extra to be able to sit through the procedures they need.

It’s proof positive that you can have it all! You can have world-class service and comfort and take advantage of our position as Arlington, VA’s most affordable dentist. Give us a call today and schedule your appointment. Experience the Annandale Smiles difference for yourself.
