“My entire family have been patients of Dr. Dougherty for more years than I can remember. We consider him to be the most trustworthy dentist we have ever visited. His friendly staff makes the visits all the more enjoyable and it’s always great to see Jean upon arrival. Also, there are never any guessing games when working with the staff! They explain everything in detail as they are going along! This type of customer service is greatly appreciated when sitting in that dental chair!”

“From the office staff to Dr. Dougherty himself, I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Very clean, neat, attractive office. Helpful staff, and Dr. Dougherty is very good at explaining procedures, as well as being thorough and gentle.”

“Dr. Dougherty’s entire dental practice and his support staff are ‘above and beyond’ any I have encountered, ever! I have four patients I bring to this office; plus, I am a patient and I have never had one problem. Everyone is so understanding of the elderly population who may need repetitive explanations or a little more patience than most. I don’t know how they do it. They give such individualized care and yet there is hardly a wait for appointments. With all new patients, Dr. Dougherty gives a total care plan of what needs to be done immediately and what can wait with the estimated price of each procedure. He explains everything in detail. He is meticulous with the dental work he does and his technique excellent. Dr. Dougherty and his staff are terrific with “pain management,” which is everyone’s fear when going to the dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Dougherty and all his wonderful staff to people of all ages.”

“After being treated like cattle at another local dental office, I was so excited to get an attentive, professional dentist in Dr. Dougherty. I am always seen at my appointment time, and the hygienist remembers me from visit to visit. I get great care with the latest technology. The office is clean, and parking is fairly easy if I have an early appointment. All the staff is friendly, professional, and helpful. When I had to get an expensive procedure, the staff gave me great information on financing options in a nonjudgmental way. I would highly recommend Dr. Dougherty to anyone in the metro DC area who is looking for top-quality dental care!”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Dougherty for more than 20 years. He and his staff have always been efficient and professional. Plus, as the years have gone by, he seems to keep up to date with the latest technology.”
&mdash James M.
“Dr. Dougherty and staff are all the highest professionals, with customer care their number-one priority. It’s almost fun to go to the dentist again. Dr. Dougherty is also a humanitarian, volunteering his time to help those in need. He is a member of the Falls Church Lions club for many years and well known in the dentist industry. I highly recommend his services.”
&mdash Barry B.
“I highly recommend Dr. Dougherty. As much as visiting the dentist is not fun, I look forward to my visits with Dr. Dougherty because the office is so well run, his staff is highly professional, and they are exceptionally friendly (even at my 7:30 a.m. appointments). Dr. Dougherty is so kind and takes time to explain everything thoroughly and in a manner that is easily understood. He did a great job on my crown. The hygiene staff are wonderful and truly care about their job and their patients. I switched from another office that was the opposite of this, and it is so refreshing to have a dentist that I really feel comfortable with and trust completely.”
&mdash Monica F.
“Dr. Dougherty and his staff provide top-notch professional and friendly service that actually makes one want to go to the dentist. I have been seeing Dr. Dougherty since he was recommended to me by a work colleague when I arrived in Northern Virginia about seven years ago, and I could not imagine going to another dentist. He is incredibly thorough and conscientious in his examinations, and he treats his patients with respect and care. Whenever one needs procedures, he provides complete explanations of why and how the procedure should be done. I have had extensive treatments, given my past failures to take care of my teeth, and each time, I have been very satisfied — beyond satisfied — with the work that he and his staff have done. He also uses the most up-to-date technology, such as digital cameras to show one the conditions of one’s teeth and why one might need a filling, a crown, or other work. He clearly cares that his dental practice reflects his own positive character traits, because his staff is equally professional and extremely friendly and gregarious. I enjoy my visits thoroughly, starting with my check-in at the front desk to my dental hygienist (Jaclyn) to check out (Jean). If I could give his practice far more than five stars, I would do so in a heartbeat!”

“Dr. Dougherty is the best dentist I have ever visited. The office is always exceptionally clean and my appointments have never started late (I’ve been seeing him for two to three years now). The staff is friendly, but you sense their priority is doing excellent work. They are knowledgeable and conscientious. Dr. Dougherty himself is thorough: he explains what is being done and why in plain language, he tells you what you absolutely need done and why, and he’ll offer preventive measures that he could do but aren’t absolutely necessary with no hard sell. Your bill breaks down exactly what is done and the cost, and he’ll provide a breakdown on any future work that you may need or consider. Dr. Dougherty delivers excellent care in a relaxed, friendly manner. There is reason he is regularly voted ‘Best Dentist’ year after year in the Falls Church News-Press. If you need a dentist or dental surgery, go see Dr. Dougherty.”
&mdash Mark M.
“Quality, professional dental practice with a human touch. I’ve been a part of Dr. Dougherty (and TEAM) for about 15 years. From basic cleaning to more complex procedures, this team has really helped me to maintain dental health. I especially appreciate the way they worked with me during bouts of asthma, and more recently during cancer treatment(s). I’ve recommended family, friends, colleagues, and clients over the years, and will continue to do so.”
