Conveniently located near DuPont Circle in Washington, D.C., Washington's Choice Dental Care provides high quality, comprehensive, restorative and preventative dental care to patients ages 3 and up. We utilize the latest technology available in dental care, like intraoral cameras and digital X-rays, to help our patients spot dental issues before they become serious problems.

At the center of Washington's Choice Dental Care are Dr. Adam P. Vitelli, DMD, and Dr. Leo E. Alter, DDS. Dr. Vitelli, a native New Yorker, received a BS in Biology from Lehigh University, and then went on to receive his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. In 2002, after finishing his residency at Monmouth Medical Center, Dr. Vitelli moved to the Washington, D.C. area. Today, he is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), two organizations that provide excellent continuing education for American dentists. Dr. Alter hails from Pittsburgh, PA, and received his BS from the University of Pittsburgh and his DDS from Temple University. Involved in Washington Metro area private practice since 1979, Dr. Alter is an active member of the ADA and the DC Dental Society - he has even served as President of the Washington Dental Science Club.

Prevention is the name of the game at Washington's Choice Dental Care. We like to emphasize regular oral hygiene and preventative care in order to help patients maintain their smiles and keep their teeth and gums healthy for many years to come. When their teeth need a bit of extra help, though, we offer the highest quality dental care available.

Some common procedures include:

• Cosmetic dentistry, including dental implants, crowns or caps, composite fillings, porcelain onlays, porcelain veneers, and porcelain fixed bridges

• Restorations

• Cleanings and preventative care

• Oral and maxillofacial surgery

• Zoom! teeth whitening

• Sleep apnea treatment, using devices like retainers and occlusal mouth guards

We strive to make quality dental care accessible to people on all budgets. Washington's Choice Dental Care offers financing through CareCredit and Springstone. We believe in being active participants in our community, which is why we participate in the Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program. GBAS was established by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 1999 in order to help restore the smiles of survivors of domestic violence whose oral health was affected by an abusive attack from a former intimate partner or spouse.

Washington's Choice Dental Care is about much more than dentistry. It's about treating patients like family - providing the necessary care and education that will serve them for years to come.
