Dr. Vakay is fabulous! She is the BEST dentist I have ever had.
I have always been a dental coward. When a tooth ache got very bad, I went to the Centreville Dental Wellness Center for help. This started me on a long period of processes, treatments and gentle care that has allowed me to overcome my fear and to bring my dental health back to where it is supposed to be. I can’t thank the staff at the Centreville Dental Wellness Center enough for their sensitive care.
I have been a patient at the Centreville Dental Wellness Center for approximately 15 years. I cannot offer enough praise for Dr. Vakay! She is without a doubt a top notch professional and accepts nothing but perfection in her work. She is by far the best dentist I have ever had. Thank you for your exceptional dental treatment and services!
Excellent practice. We were referred to them by a specialist that works with the Redskins . They are a class act. We recently made the switch for our kids from a pediatric dentist to Centreville Dental Wellness. Very happy we did. They are very kid friendly and did superior cleanings than the prior dentist. Highly recommend them.
This dental practice is absolutely wonderful. I have had multiple procedures and follow ups that have made me love my smile again! I have a lot of trepidation about dental work but this practice has made me enjoy the entire experience. My three year old daughter has recently become a patient as well and they were extra nurturing! Excellent practice! I travel from Arlington to continue to see them!
