27/07/13 5 5 5 5 Having been to a lot of dentists, having dental work done on extensive level, but not lasting long due to constant repair and patch up, at last I saw dr. mazza several years ago. His examination was extremely precise. no one else has taken the time and films and photos he took. He showed me what was the root of all problems. It took a while over 8 months to fix and repair and replace all shady patch ups. The sedation didn't let me to feel a bit even I don't remember the day of procedure. Next day I expected pain and swelling but he had put me on several medications off hand so I had no swelling and pain that kept me comfortable. I have a a wonderful smile now and I can eat normally. Hands down the best dentist ever. Not the cheapest in town, but worrths every penny.  Respond

14/02/13 5 5 5 5 I can Smile Confidently thanks to all wonderful work of Dr. Mazza. His expertise and patience with me was unvbelievable. He is beyond a doctor, he is a true artist and a gentleman who understands and respects the needs and conditions of his patients. The office is super modern, and clean. All the equipments are high tech. His involvement as a professor at dental school has made him a great educator. I truly can not express my appreciation for what he did and how much he improved my life. God Bless him and his family and staff.  Respond

04/01/13 5 5 5 5 All I Wanted Was To Keep My Four Front Teeth When I went to see Dr. Mazza over two years ago I had a very bleak diagnosis for calcium deposits gone untreated and it had lead to bone loss and a receding gum line. The future of my oral hygiene and oral health was uncertain. If I continued with my current habits I would have eventually lost all of my front teeth most certainly. With Dr. Mazza’s state of the art equipment, coupled with an oral hygiene plan which paralleled the cleaning methods that he implemented both in the office and at home. In two short years I have my gums back, I did not have to have surgery and I did not loose my four front teeth. Thank you Dr. Mazza for giving me back my own teeth and smile. There is nothing like having your own teeth and knowing that you are going to keep them. His professionalism, dedication and commitment to his patients is something he earns everyday. I think about him every morning when I see my own teeth reflecting back.  Respond

29/07/12 5 5 5 5 I feel privileged to write this commendation for the perfection of the dental work Dr. Mazza has performed on my mouth, gums and teeth. His great care in the periodontal surgical procedures of gingival grafting, the straightening of my teeth in a small mouth, has been amazing. His superior and advanced training and as a professor teaching dental students at Maryland University Dental School with a driving desire that his dentists will give the same care and precision to their future patients that he has shown toward me and others I know who have greatly benefited from his outstanding dentistry. An elderly friend of mine in her 80's had much gum disease and was practically toothless, but Dr. Mazza has meticulously reversed everything and given her healthy gums and the most beautiful dentures in the world. She looks regal now and can't stop smiling! Sandy  Respond

22/07/12 5 5 5 5 When I first visited Dr. Mazza’s office nearly three years ago, my mouth was a mess. I hardly ever smiled … I was ashamed of my teeth. I was then wearing an ill-fitting partial that looked awful and made it difficult for me to chew meat, etc. With a lot of time and patience on Dr. Mazza’s part, he has restored the beautiful smile of my youth. I am no longer ashamed to smile … in fact, I smile all the time now. I highly recommend Dr. Mazza to anyone looking to improve their smile. Dr. Mazza, you are my hero!!!

18/07/12 5 5 5 5 Both the doctor and receptionist were very warm and friendly. Dr. Mazza was very thorough with the examination and cleaning, and helped make it a relaxing experience by playing tranquil music in the background. He even supplied me with a package containing a tooth brush, floss, mouth wash, etc. I will definitely return for my future dental needs!  Respond

15/06/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza is a great dentist! He is very thorough and is always checking to make sure you are comfortable and ok during the time he is working on you. He has been my dentist for over 5 years now and I always walk out of his office feeling very well taken care of. I don’t have dental insurance so he is wonderful about understanding that I have to pay out of pocket and he is always giving me helpful hints and ways to help me solve my problems without having to undergo a procedure. 3 of my teeth have receding gums and he is always reminding me to massage my gums and teaching me how to take especially good care of those teeth so I can avoid gum surgery. I think he is an excellent choice for a dentist and I am so glad that I found him.  Respond

05/06/12 5 5 5 5 Frankly, anytime I am to rate an establishment, I do try to think of the negative experiences initially. Dr. Mazza you got me! J I was not blessed with good teeth and have been to dentists in three different countries and a few in US. Leisurely the best experience! I needed a cap on a cracked front tooth. I wanted to be insured by the quality of the dentist that does the job correctly. I’ve asked around to find a good dentist. I was directed to the right source. Very informative, professional, friendly and detail oriented. He took his time and explained in detail while I was looking at my x-rays, before and during the procedure, giving me the options, not forcing me to what was convenient for his office! And yes, a personal call by Dr. Mazza after every visit to check on me. He does take pride in what he does! Anyhow, I received my cap one week later. It is beautiful and perfectly matching. Thank you Dr. Mazza. Ray  Respond

30/05/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Mazza is the bomb:) and the Mazza Center for Implant and Esthetic Dentistry provides an outstanding dental experience for everyone. From a well decorated waiting room, the longest I have had to wait is 5 min, to exam rooms that have TV’s on both the wall and ceiling. Dr. Mazza is a true professional. I have great anxiety when I go to the dentist but not so with DR. Mazza. He makes me feel like a friend and not just a patient. He asks about friends and family, remembers birthdays and holidays, explains procedures well and answers all my questions and does phone follow ups to make sure everything is OK. He even puts on video and music I like to help me relax. His staff is always courteous, friendly and engaging. I know I can be a handful and they have always treated me with the upmost respect. Bottom line is that when I go there, I feel like I am going to see family and that family is taking care of me.

17/04/12 4 4 1 1 I am very disappointed with Dr. Mazza. On the surface he is very, very nice and charming. Unfortunately, after spending almost $15,000 on dental care, I feel that he is a crook with a smile. My dental work has not held up. I received veneers only 3 years ago. One veneer cracked and needed to be repaired about 5 different times. Now another 2 have become loose and detached from my gums. Instead of standing behind his work and fixing, he'd like to charge me thousands of dollars more to do what should have been done initially. Although my teeth looked good, my opinion is that they were never applied correctly from the beginning. For the amount of money paid, I think he should stand behind his work after only 3 years. I will not be returning to him.

09/04/12 5 5 5 5 The Mazza Center for Implant and Esthetic Dentistry provides an outstanding dental experience for everyone. The waiting area is well decorated with outstanding art work and provides video information about many informative dental subjects of interest to both children and adults making good use of the short waiting room time. The office staff is very cordial and friendly. Two flat screens of 46 and 27 inches provide great photography to view along with the soothing background music while the dental work is proceeding. Dr. Mazza's outstanding dental procedures are followed up by written directions regarding the best care for maintaining your teeth and the new dental work as well as phone calls and other contacts to ensure that everything continues to be in order. My wife and I gladly drive from Annapolis to have him work on our teeth as this is a first class dental office.

07/03/12 5 5 5 5 I have been Dr. Mazza's patient for the past 4 years and he has provided nothing less than outstanding dental care. He uses state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and offers gentle sedation if you need extensive dental work. He gave me a new smile with veneers and restored my receding gums to health. Dr. Mazza is meticulous in his approach, has a great chair-side manner, and goes to great lengths to make sure you are not in any pain. How many dentists do you know who do perform the teeth cleaning themselves, follow-up appointments with a call to see how you are, and text you with appointment reminders or Happy New Year wishes? Dr. Mazza does!  Respond

08/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza is the BEST! After visiting and consulting with two other dentists in this area, I took my child to Dr. Mazza and I recognized him to be simply the best in his profession! He accepted my child as his patient, even though I expressed in advance that I had financial difficulties paying for his excellent service. Due to extensive problems with my child’s teeth, we had to visit Dr. Mazza several times, and during each visit, he provided excellent care for my child, helped him to be comfortable, and took his time to take care of my child with hygienic and high-tech tools in a calm atmosphere and spotless environment. I found Dr. Mazza to be genuinely kind, very gentle with his patient, and extremely professional. Before leaving his office, I received written instructions to take care of my child’s teeth and to prevent future problems. Later, he followed up with a phone call to make sure my child is doing well. I greatly appreciate his work and strongly recommend him to all.

16/08/11 3 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza has been my dentist for about five years. My teeth were showing their age (60-ish), and I chose to correct my lifelong overbite and to straighten protruding and overlapping teeth. It was a big investment for me and took longer than expected. Dr. Mazza was perfectionistic about the final result, and did not add any charges for the extra time and care. I love my "enhanced smile" and appreciate the high standard of routine care, too.  Respond

28/07/11 4 5 5 5 Outstanding service and professionalism. Dr. Mazza has fixed my Lumineers (that another dentist might not have had the experience placing), adjusted my bite, and has went above and beyond in getting my smile back. I recommend Dr. Mazza, if you want an expert in the field, patient, and someone that will provide a quality product.  Respond

07/07/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Mazza spent over 3 years to completely rebuild my bite -- gum treatment first to rebuild the gumline, then invisalign to straighten badly twisted/crowded teeth, and finally veneers to create a dazzling, beautiful smile. I had spoken with several other cosmetic dentists, who wanted to rush to the (high margin) veneer work without doing the required preparation. Dr. Mazza is extremely detail oriented, never in a rush, and wants the absolute best results possible--he is a Professor at the University of Maryland Dental School, which requires that he keep at the forefront of his profession. Both on a personal and professional level, he is a complete pleasure to work with. He takes a sincere interest in his patients (and calls them personally to follow up after procedures to make sure that everything is going well). I absolutely recommend him-Thank you.  Respond

07/06/11 5 5 5 5 Words of gratitude are not adequate to express how much I respect the perfection of dentistry practiced by Dr. Mazza. He truly is a "dentist's dentist" and I am sure his students in dentistry at Maryland University's School of Dentistry would not receive such expert training and an appreciation of the importance for the well being of their patients were it not for Dr. Mazza's endeavors to ingrain this in them. He is such an example of thoroughness, follow-up, caring and precision. When I came to him after visiting another supposed expert in dentistry, I was amazed how even his digital x-rays were so much clearer than this other person, his prescribed program of how to correct my numerous problems were so exacting and and his desire to sincerely help me as my job has me before the public, speaking, singing, doing TV interviews, etc. If Queen Elizabeth were in America and needed urgent care from an expert dentist here, I would heartedly recommend him to her!

10/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza was extremely helpful. I went to his office with severe pain in my mouth. I was worried about losing two teeth. He explained to me what referral pain was and helped me understand the process he was going to go through to help me. He then quickly, efficiently, and painlessly removed the decayed tooth that was the cause of all of my pain for the last several weeks. Thank you Dr. Mazza!  Respond

06/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza's dentist skills are topnothch, but just as important, his engaging personality puts the patient at ease. He carefully explains each procedure prior to beginning, and asks questions throughout to ensure patient comfort. His office is decorated nicely and soothing music plays in the background, creating a peaceful environment. If you have general dentistry, cosmetic, or implant needs, The Mazza Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry is the one-stop place in the greater DC area to go.

04/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza is very-well trained, explains procedures well, has very good judgement - solving dental problems others missed. His is excedingly friendly and polite. You feel almost like a member of the family, the way he treats you as a customer. He even calls on holidays to wish us well. He is also very professional. And his work is impecable. I have recommended him to friends and they are very pleased. He made partial dentures for a friend of mine and now she is as beautiful as any princess. I enthusiastically recommend this cosmetic dentist, Dr. David Mazza.

28/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza is an incredible family dentist. Not only is he sweet, gentle, and calming to my VERY nervous 5 and 3 year old girls, he is incredible at what he does. He is up to date on the latest technology and is more skilled than any dentist I have been too yet. Not to mention, I've never felt so calm and motivated to go to the dentist. He makes it a top priority to make sure you are comfortable, to explain what to expect, and creates a very soothing atmosphere in his office. We will DEFINITELY be staying with Dr. Mazza for the years to come. I never thought one could be so pleased with their dentist!  Respond

28/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza was absolutely fantastic with helping my seven-year-old daughter and three-year-old son. Both kids were terrified with the thought of a dentist visit, but Dr. Mazza made every effort to help them with their fears and made them feel comfortable. Eventually, they both received excellent care and were not scared at all by the time we left his office. I must say that Dr. Mazza has a special gift with kids.

27/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mazza is my Hero Dentist! After searching for the right dentist for years and going through revolving door of different dentist, at last I found Dr. David Mazza.

30/12/09 2 3 1 3 My advise is to avoid dentist David Mazza at all costs. He prays upon the patients by luring them in with free dental coupons and then pushed thousands of dollars of cosmetic and services by exaggerated claims of problems in teeth. He uses movies and technology to wow you in. He had stated that I can just try the braces fitting (some latest technology) and will not have to pay if I do not want to go further with actual braces, but he ended up billing me mercilessly for it and even used shark practices of relying on credit bureaus to force me to pay. Staff was very unhelpful as well.
