I would highly recommend Dr. Kaitlin Delaney of Ingber Dental. I didn’t know what to expect as a new patient, but she was thorough, professional, and put me at ease throughout the appointment. The paperwork and insurance was a breeze and the staff was really friendly. More

Dr. Ingber and Vanessa did a great job replacing the old crown on my front tooth. I had put it off for years, but they made the procedure as easy as possible. The results are wonderful. Also, Lindsey managed to convince me to actually start flossing every day. Now I can't believe I would go so long between flossing before! The front desk staff are also always professional and friendly. I've been coming to this dentist office for about a year now and have only had good experiences. More

This was my initial visit to the Ingber practice and found the staff extremely welcoming.  The on short notice, the practice bent over backwards to get me scheduled with a dentist for a second opinion.   My scheduled appointment time was 0800, I was in the chair seeing the hygienist at 0803 and the dentist shortly after my X Rays.  I was very frustrated and had completely lost confidence with my previous dentist.  Ingber, was professional took the time to explain what I needed and discussed my options,  Ingber answered my questions, even when I repeated asked questions for my clarity.  I am excited about returning to Ingber and having them as my primary dentist.  Another Ingber review after installing a crown.

It's a year and a half since my last review of Ingber Dental and I just want to say, It's Just As good! Yesterday, my husband lost a tooth--I called them today for an appointment and Claudia is seeing him in 2 days. If my husband had been in pain, I know they would have immediately made time for him.

I've been coming to Dr. Ingber for a few years and have had nothing but a positive experience with him, the other doctors, and the administrative staff. On the last point, I've had to cancel/reschedule at the last minute a few times, and the staff has always been great about finding me a new appointment. I've never been charged a late cancellation fee (I think they have a policy in place, but it's not enforced if you explain nicely). I also get various email/text/call reminders starting about a week before my appointment, which is helpful since most of us choose to forget that the dentist exists between teeth cleanings. In terms of the dentistry itself, I've never felt like I'm being upcharged for problems that don't exist. Granted, I have good teeth that haven't needed much beyond routine cleanings, but I've found Dr. Ingber to be attentive, thorough, and quick. I once brought up a slight shift in my bottom teeth, which had a permanent retainer on them at the time. He recommended an appointment with Dr. Porvaznik, which I was able to get on the books for the following week. Dr. Porvaznik followed the same pattern: helpful, friendly, and not pushy at all. He quickly discovered that the retainer wire was starting to lift from the back of my teeth, creating the uneven pressure that was causing the shift. He explained to me that this issue is why he doesn't recommend permanent retainers (which my old ortho had installed about 10 years ago and declared as something that would keep my teeth straight for life...guess not). He suggested doing a series of Invisalign retainers to correct the movement and then a final version to maintain the straightened teeth. Since I've invested a lot in and care quite a bit about my teeth, I agreed with this plan, expecting the additional visits and progressive retainers to cost me upwards of a thousand dollars. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the whole process came to just $200 and accomplished exactly what I wanted. I'm surprised and perplexed by some of the one-star reviews; perhaps the staff has turned over or I've simply never encountered the problematic individuals. I also know that dental patients aren't always pleasant themselves, so for potential newcomers: I'd suggest trying for yourself and drawing your own conclusions. More

Dr. P is the best! I moved to DC and found Dr. P at Ingber on Yelp. I met with him for an initial consultation to replace my top veneers and he was so helpful, informative and friendly from the start. He understood exactly what I was looking for and was my biggest supporter and advocate through the process. The entire office was warm and friendly during every visit and Dr. P did a fantastic job! Multiple people have commented how fantastic my smile is and I owe it all to Dr. P and his team at Ingber Dental! More

Dr. Ingber is an excellent dentist and this practice is superb overall. Ingber clearly knows what he is doing and takes the time to explain any process to you. I take great comfort in his knowledge and willingness to answer all my (sometimes exhaustive) questions. My teeth are in great shape thanks to Dr. Ingber and this whole practice. Look no further - you will not find a better dentist or dental practice in DC. Location is also superb with metro nearby, street parking at the right time, and paid parking directly under the building. More

It was great meeting Dr. Ingber today and am grateful for the care and help that his staff showed me. They were warm and kind, despite me needing to shift the appointment around a few times and then showing up almost 15 minutes late. I love seeing Dr. Azin Ghesmati and am so glad to have found her at her new location, at Ingber Dental. Dr. Ghesmati and Javonda have been so good to me even though I had ignored going to the dentist much of my adult life. They give me so much great information, leaving me feeling like I have control back of my teeth despite needing quite a bit of work.  They treat me with professionalism, honesty, care, humor, and answer all of my crazy questions.

I've only had positive experiences with Dr. P and the Ingber Dental staff.  They happily answer any questions you may have and give you straight answers in terms of the services they offer and what would best suit my needs (I'd asked about teeth whitening, and I felt no pressure to decide on the spot, or go with their expensive options). Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a new dentist in the area!  They book pretty far in advance but they're convenient to downtown. More

Compassionate and conservative dentist. Full disclosure: I have high dental needs. I am not your average see-the-dentist-for-a-cleaning-twice-a-year type of patient, so over the last 5 years since i've been a patient, i've had a LOT of interactions with Dr. Ingber, Dr. P and their staff.  I have a compromised immune system and jaws of steel (read: clenching and grinding and breaking of teeth), so I've had a lot of dental work for my age...and when I have a problem with my teeth it needs to be fixed, and fast, as any infection or problem can progress very quickly into severe danger/health complication territory. Dr. Ingber is among the best dentists I've seen for my needs. I've been his patient for years now, and although their office is now out of my dental network he continues to work with me to pay for crowns, implants, mouthguards, fillings, and small cracks. He always suggests all of the options if I need work done, and lets me choose which is the best fit for my budget and my health needs.  He's fixed failed/poor dental work I had at another dentist, and preserved my tooth structure in every possible way.  He answers his cell phone on the weekend in an emergency, and Carrie, Angie and the crew will fit me in without question for an appointment, whether something is loose, cracked, painful, or needs adjusting. Dr. Ingber really does care about his patients' oral health, and his work on my teeth has been flawless and tireless.  If you just need a basic cleaning and you've never had a cavity, well, this will be a pretty easy 30 minutes spent in the chair. But if you've got high dental needs, you've delayed some complex work, or you get nervous at the dentist - Dr. Ingber really is very professional, very personable, and just the best. Going to the dentist is generally awful, but seeing Dr. Ingber isn't really so bad. More

What to say about Dr. P?  He is kind, thorough, fair, and very fun.  I've been his patient for over 8 years and can only say positive things about him.  His office staff are easy to deal with, he is not too difficult to get an appointment with, and I always feel very well taken care of when I'm in his exam chair. I've had two occasions to see his partner, Dr. Ingber, who was also a really wonderful dentist. If only all medical professionals could be as fantastic as Dr. P! More

I highly recommend Dr. Ingber!  I joined the practice about a year ago at a friend's recommendation.  I have gone for two routine cleanings and Susan, the hygentist, is very friendly and efficient.  On my second cleaning, I mentioned that I was having some more jaw pain from my TMJ and when Dr. Ingber came in he quickly indicated that my mouth guard was not sufficient.  I had purchased the guard from another dentist 5 years prior and unknown to me, that dentist had never actually fit the guard to my mouth.  Dr. Ingber took a couple of visits to painstakingly fit the guard properly to my mouth as he knew that within my budget I could afford to have the current guard corrected but couldn't quite afford a new guard.  He squeezed me in for these two visits within a week as I was in the process of moving west.  He is such a very kind and patient dentist who takes the time to walk you through what he is doing.  He even made the time to recommend a new dentist to me in my new state.   I know there are a few negative reviews for him, but I honestly do urge you to give his practice a try.  I've been very pleased as have a few other friends who also use his practice.

Dr. Ingber has been my dentist for almost 30 years.  His office has a strong commitment to good dental health.  I haven't had dental emergencies and/or huge dental problems because I have followed his advise in caring for my teeth and gums and the results have been good.   The office is well located and quite punctual.  I have worked in many different locations around the DC area and it's always been easy to get to his K-Street office.  This means that I've have not had to switch dentists and have benefited from continuityty of care.  He doesn't do needless dental work because he knows my teeth and how they've done over the past years.   He's incorporated technology into his practice in ways that improve record keeping and reduce costs.  He's up to date on dental techniques.  My dental work is good looking and well done. Given his location and the quality of service he provides he is not a cheap dentist.  Bargin hunters probably should look elsewhere.  I for one don't want a bargain dentist who is out to maximize volume without regard to my unique dental situation.  I want a quality dentist.  Good teeth are a must-have for professionals in the DC area and his office is in the business of keeping teeth in your mouth and looking good.

I've been going to Dr. P for 8 years. He did my invisalign and held my hand through my first cavity ever (for some reason it was very emotional for me- I took it hard). Dr. P. is very personable and always remembers details about me to ask about. I give him 4 stars becuase as usual, the office staff (not dental techs, they're great too) leave a lot to be desired. There is high turnover. Once I had a billing problem (they billed something wrong and insurance was giving me the run around blah blah) and I actually had to email Dr. Ingber (the owner of the practice I guess) because the staff was making me so frustrated I was ready to say to hell with the whole practice. Good help really is hard to find. More
