Family Dentistry Services near Fairfax and Chantilly, VA

Family dentistry and children's dentistry patients in Fairfax, VAFamily dentistry includes all of the services you would expect from a general dentistry practice, but for your whole family! Think of us as your one-stop-shop for general dental and gum health. These services include:

Regular Dental Check-ups and Teeth Cleanings

Preventive dental care is necessary to ensure the health of your gums and teeth. Everything you do regularly to take care of your teeth is part of preventive dental care; this includes flossing and brushing, maintaining a healthy diet, and seeing our Centreville dentist near Chantilly and Fairfax for routine dental exams and professional teeth cleanings regularly.

Keeping regular, scheduled appointments is an important habit for everyone in your family. These dental checkups let us catch any developing problems before they go too far—including fixing cavities with dental fillings, reversing gum disease, treating oral cancer, and other issues.

Routine teeth cleanings are vital. With the latest cleaning tools, mouth rinses, and gels at Centreville Dental Wellness Center, your teeth will feel amazingly clean after each visit. Our dental hygienists are excellent at finding the hidden places where bacteria hide from your toothbrush and floss. Teeth cleaning protects your teeth from decay.

Dental Sealants in Centreville, VA

Toddler with dental sealant treatment in Centreville near Fairfax and ChantillyDental sealants are an important aspect of preventive dental care. These plastic coatings are placed on the molars’ chewing surface to help guard them against decay. These teeth, located in the back of the mouth, are marked by grooves that make them particularly vulnerable to decay.

The grooves are generally deep and may be too difficult to clean with a regular toothbrush. When plaque accumulates in the grooves, bacteria can break down the enamel and lead to cavities. Our dental sealants provide extra protection for the teeth by providing a smooth covering over the grooved area.

Dental Fillings near Fairfax and Chantilly, VA

If tooth decay has caused small holes in your teeth, our Centreville dentist can use dental fillings with a natural color to repair the tooth. You won’t even see the spot in the mirror—and no one else will notice it. Our goals are to make your smile look beautiful while protecting your tooth from being infected again.

If you have a larger hole in your tooth, your dentist can craft a larger tooth filling that is anchored on the surface of your tooth. It will blend in, looking great, while protecting the interior of the tooth.

Fluoride Treatment in Centreville, VA

Fluoride treatments offer even more protection for your teeth. The mineral helps prevent cavities when applied directly to the enamel of the teeth. Many kinds of toothpaste contain fluoride, but the most effective fluoride treatment is done in a dentist’s office like Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

The professional fluoride preparation used by dentists is much stronger than that in toothpaste and can provide longer-lasting protection.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional counseling is another important component of preventive dental care. A diet that consists of certain foods, such as those high in simple carbohydrates, can harm your dental health.

Bacteria thrive on carbohydrates, and cutting back on simple carbs like sugar can make it more difficult for the mouth to support the growth of bacteria. Increasing the number of fruits and vegetables in one’s diet is another focus of nutritional counseling. These foods help clean the teeth because they are high in fiber.

Oral Cancer Screening

It’s extremely important that we catch any oral cancer symptoms before they develop too far. Oral cancer has a much better prognosis when caught early.

We use visual screenings. We will look for bumps, color patches, ulcerations, swellings, asymmetries, and other unusual features. When you keep regular checkup appointments, it’s more likely that we will notice changes such as these. We may examine your lips, jaw, cheeks, face, neck, nose, and the inside of your mouth.

Dental Emergencies near Fairfax and Chantilly, VA

During a dental emergency, you can depend on us to take care of your family. We can often fit in appointments on the same day that a dental emergency occurs. We can treat a lost tooth, tooth damage, severe toothache, and more. Call us immediately to get an appointment and answers.

Tooth Extractions in Centreville, VA

Even with preventive dentistry, tooth extractions are sometimes necessary because of accidental damage, tooth decay, or wisdom teeth problems. When teeth compromise the health of other teeth or the whole smile, we may recommend one or more tooth extractions. These tooth extractions are quick, routine procedures. We’ll keep you comfortable throughout using our sedation dentistry treatment!

Infants and children, although young, are not immune to developing oral health problems. Tooth decay is one of the most common childhood ailments, more chronic than asthma or hay fever. Early and regular visits to the dentist are essential to combating decay and other dental problems.

What Our Patients Say

Am I an anxious dental patient? YES!!! BUT, I am so thankful for Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Walking in the front door for an appointment, I am ALWAYS welcomed so warmly by the staff. They have the brightest smiles and emit such positive energy, and it's obvious they enjoy their jobs and each other. So thankful for the dental hygienist who is super encouraging to me, reminds me to breathe and relax my shoulders (even when I'm not even aware how my body is reacting!) I've been forever impacted by Dr. Vakay's technician during dental procedures who has squeezed my hand to give me strength -- such a small gesture but so helpful that I've paid this forward many times for others who are anxious! Dr. Vakay is always supportive, encouraging and emits such strength herself that I believe her and trust her judgment and recommendations. I loved hearing her say at my last visit regarding her job, "it is my joy and my purpose." There is no doubt she is doing what she is called to do! AND with JOY!

Joyce M.

I went to see Dr Vakay to get a dental appliance for my sleep apnea and ended up switching to the office for my routine dental care as well. The whole staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they made me feel very comfortable and valued. I honestly have never received such a thorough cleaning before and my snoring has stopped. Very happy with my experience!

Mary K.

I broke a front tooth crown off at the gum line. Dr. Abel was able to see me within a couple of hours After assessing the damage he presented me with several options for a repair and devised a way to hold a temporary tooth in place. Permanent repair is scheduled. I couldnt be happier with the care I received.

Elaine M.

I just recently moved to Northern Virginia and Centreville Dental Wellness Center was recommended to me and also had great reviews online. My first appointment was 23Jun2023 and everyone from the ladies at the front desk to Dr. Abel and his assistant were outstanding. Thrilled to have found this amazing team!!

Nina A.

Dr Abel, the front desk, hygienist team and everyone in between is At. I have gone to CDWC for years and sometimes travel 2+ hours for a visit. They provide organized, and trustworthy service, but more importantly personable with their care.

J K.

Centreville Dental Wellness was and is an amazing place. I had multiple issues and they were very patient with me. They are very experienced and know their stuff. I love them all particularly Dr Abel who took a lot of time with me and made sure I was straight. I pray that God continues to bless them and their business.

Arlene D.

I highly recommend Centreville Dental Wellness Center! I always have a great, smooth experience here. Dr.s Vakay and Abel are outstanding dentists, professional as well as friendly and approachable. The staff is efficient, welcoming and caring. I've been patient for years and cannot say enough great things about this practice.


WOW! I look amazing!! ; My 2 front teeth were worn and chipped. It affected my smile and confidence. After the restorative (yet gentle) work by the team at Centreville Dental Wellness, I can truly say this practice is second to none! The crowns look so natural and I'm so glad I can smile again!! When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas... said "my 2 front teeth" and thanks to the masterful cosmetic work done by Dr. Vacay and her assistant Christina, my Christmas wish came true! Gotta give a shout out to the friendly and supportive front office staff as well, Tonia, Sylvia and Sogand. Merry Christmas to all!!

Anastasia P.

Dr. Vakay and her team are excellent. They are careful, thorough, and attentive to the patient's concerns. They take the time to explain how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. I have always been completely satisfied.

Bruce S.

I've only ever been to one dentist, and don't have any plans to change that! Dr. Vakay, Dr. Abel, and the entire staff at Centreville Dental Wellness Center provide a patient experience that is both timelessly reliable and constantly improving. Recently, I came to them with jaw pain related to TMJ, and after real discussion concerning all my options, they set me up with a kois product that has eliminated the pain and dramatically improved my range of motion. It's been a true success story!

Jake W.

Ok, this is the first review I have EVER written. This morning I had a procedure done by Dr. Vakay with her assistant Christina, that was, without exception, the best experience at a dentist office I have ever encountered. The professionalism and expertise between these two was nothing short of a 'dance." | felt that seamless interaction, put me at ease. The front desk is wonderful to work with. I left another practice in Haymarket because of the way they handled the financial. I have great dental insurance and was told as I was sitting in the chair, that the doctor would not do the procedure unless I gave them a credit card. At which point I demanded to see the doctor and told him I was aghast at his greater interest in getting paid than my teeth and walked out. This is how a dental office should run, and they have hit a very high mark as the daughter of an orthodontist. Bravo Team Centreville Wellness.
