Dental One Associates is great. I love Dr. Wilson, he’s very professional. If you’ve had your teeth cleaned by Dionne, you were in very caring hands. She’s wonderful.

Dr. Wilson, Linne, and the assisting team at the Capitol Heights location were the best. I had several needles for my procedure and felt nothing. I am a 60+ retiree and have had extensive dental work done since I was age 10. The team was warm and explained everything so I would know what to expect. Bravo to a job well done!
I always been scared to go to the dentist but they were nice and gentle and I was in a lot of pain. Thanks
Dr. Okoro is the most professional dentist I have ever been to. I came to her crying about the tooth pain and my fear of needles, she was able to calm me down, provide an excellent service, and formulate a dental treatment plan for me. The receptionist Sheila made me feel relaxed and Rebecca the dental assistant was extremely helpful & professional.
