Choosing a Dentist in Arlington? Here are 5 Things to Look for…


Your oral health is more important than you may realize. Good oral health is connected to good general health, so it’s important to find a dentist you can trust. Whether you’ve just moved to the DC metro area, or want to change your dentist, here are 5 things to consider when choosing a new dentist:


  1. Are They an Experienced Team? — When you’re looking for top dental care, the first thing you should consider are the credentials and experience of the team. Cusumano & Stuver has proudly served the Ballston, Arlington, and the DC metro area for over 30 years.

  2. Do They Have Great Reviews? — Most businesses may be biased when it comes to their own offering, so don’t just take it from them.

We are proud of our 5-star reputation and we are honored to be recognized as top dentists by Washingtonian Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine, Arlington Magazine, Virginia Living Magazine, Nextdoor and Angi.

  3. Do They Offer Comprehensive Dentistry? — Your time is precious, so instead of finding different providers for different procedures or family members, at Cusumano & Stuver, we offer comprehensive dental services that include, preventative care, restorative and cosmetic procedures, treatment for sleep apnea, orthodontics, dental implants, surgical procedures as well as emergency dentistry in Arlington.

  4. Is the Practice Easily Accessible? — You shouldn’t have to go out of your way to visit the dentist. That’s why Cusumano & Stuver is conveniently located in the heart of Ballston so you can combine your visit with running errands, grabbing a cup of coffee or shopping around the Ballston Exchange. If you’re driving, we offer complimentary parking in our building and if you’re taking public transport, we are only a block away from the Ballston Metro station on Fairfax Drive. Our office is within walking distance of many large corporations, colleges and small businesses.

  5. Do They Offer Convenient Scheduling Options? — Everyone has different communication preferences which is why at Cusumano & Stuver we offer several appointment booking options at our office including over the telephone, or by scheduling directly online through our website.
