The warmest and most dedicated dentist...
When I moved to the NOVA area last fall, I dreaded the prospect of having to find a new dentist. Haven gone through five in my previous residence, I can attest to the horrors of an unfriendly and unqualified staff. By some grace of God, I was referred to Dr Sheikh via a co-worker. Upon meeting Dr Sheikh, I could tell that he was the sweetest man. Now, over a year later, I can say that his genuine care for his patients is unrivaled. Dr Sheikh makes every effort to ensure that his patients are as comfortable as possible. And aside from his manners, Dr Sheihk actually knows what he is talking about and takes every opportunity to make sure you know exactly what is going on in your mouth (which, with the numbers of issues going on in mine, is invaluable). I can only hope that I can take Dr Sheikh with me whenever I end up moving in the future. Thank you! ...James
I went to Dr Sheikh for a second opinion. My original dentist told me I needed a deep cleaning of my gums but never told me why, what that was, and what it entailed. When I went to Dr. Sheikh who took the time to measure my gum depth, explained what was happening in my mouth and what needed to be done to prevent further deterioration. He told me he agreed that I needed a deep cleaning but for only 2 quadrants of my teeth. Dr Sheikh was kind, compassionate, and most of all, patient (a rarity in the medical world). Needless to say, he is my new dentist …Soha
Really great dentist!
I needed a dentist right away because my tooth was really hurting. I went to Dr. Sheikh who was recommended by a friend and I am so glad I did! He told me exactly what was happening with my tooth, and was very gentle when working on my mouth. He fixed the problem and the pain never came back! I will definitely be retuning to him for future dental needs …Rola
Great with Kids!
have been going to Dr Sheikh since 2005. He is kind, patient and honest. When he moved from one practice to his own, I made sure to follow him, even though it was further away from our home. But the true test of Dr Sheikh's dentistry came with how he had handled my one year old daughter. She recently fell on concrete at 12 months and I was terrified she had broken her tooth and would have to go thru childhood with a missing tooth. But Dr Sheikh was able to see me AFTER HOURS and make sure nothing terrible had happened. He also taught me the best ways to help me brush her teeth! I truly recommend Dr Sheikh. Dr Sheikh was able to ease my concerns and is super helpful, day or night!! ...Sam
Cured my dental phobia!
I am a dental phobic. I usually get referred out just to accept local anesthesia. So when I needed to get a crown I tried my best to get out of it. But Dr Sheikh was gentle and worked with me thru my fear, making the experience completely pain-free. He also made sure the color was exactly perfect, even when I was fine with anything close. The crown fit perfectly the first time and he even called me after the visit to make sure I was ok and that everything felt fine. After my visit with Dr Sheikh, I no longer think of going to the dentist as a terrible experience, and hope he stays my dentist for a very long time! ...Christine
Dr Sheikh is as good as it gets. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and I felt minimal pain. I was equally impressed by ability to schedule appointments with little headache an and short wait times. I only had to was a few minutes and he took me right back. As he meticulously worked on my cavity, I felt no pain and he explained to the steps he was performing. He also educated me on proper oral care and taught me that there's a link between gum disease and heart disease, " I had NO idea!!!" …AJ
Dr Sheikh is the most pleasant, respectful, and knowledgeable dentist I have had the pleasure of meeting. Over the past two years, I have seen Dr Sheikh six times - all within 10 minutes of entering his office. His staff is friendly and the hygienists are second to none. I have the utmost confidence in his ability, and his gentle demeanor ensures that I am comfortable at all times. He's truly as good as it gets …Reno S.
Dr. Sheikh and his entire staff are always friendly, professional, and a delight to be around. They make you feel like family from the moment you step into the office up until you walk out! I completely trust Dr. Sheikh when it comes to making decisions about my oral well being. He's very honest and never seems to be trying to "push" anything on me, which I totally appreciate. I will never look for another dentist office again! ...Zia K
