in Alexandria, VA

Family dentistry is a branch of dentistry that offers treatments for your oral health at every stage of your life. A family dentist will provide a wide range of dental services, from the preventative dental cleanings and restorations like fillings to more specific procedures such as protective sealants, teeth whitening, to solutions such as crowns, bridges, and tooth replacements.

An experienced family dentist is trained to provide all-inclusive oral health care from infancy through to retirement and even beyond.

The entire team at INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA shares an office goal. With over three decades of experience, we pride ourselves in being old school when it comes to respecting you and your family and giving you the treatment that we would wish to receive ourselves. Every single patient receives the quality care they deserve. This is the way to earn your trust and satisfaction. Our team is focused on our collaborative efforts to promote oral health by practicing prevention, wellness, enhancement, and renewing rejuvenation. Visit us at 4660 Kenmore Ave., #320, Alexandria, VA 22304 or give us a call today at 703-751-7600 to schedule your appointment regarding your family dentistry plans.

At INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA we are committed to treating you at every step of your life and your family as well. Our team is proud to provide a broad scope of dental services and has a commitment to provide these services to the best of our ability.

We Always Begin with Preventative Family Dentistry

Not only do we provide oral health care for you and your entire family, but we are also dedicated to helping you with educational points and tips on at-home oral hygiene habits that you and your family can practice reducing the likelihood of problems developing.

This is evident when you review our pediatric dental care. Our staff is trained and genuinely enjoys helping new parents learn and implement the best oral care for their newborn. This is certainly true with care directed at baby teeth. By starting young it can impact their developing proper chewing habits, proper speech, and establishing good preventative oral health habits early. We will monitor their growth and make sure your child is reaching the important milestones properly.

Regular Dental Exams and Checkups for the Entire Family

One of the easiest ways to maintain the continued good oral health for you and your family is to schedule regular family exams every six months. Regular exams will include evaluation of the following:

  • Any signs of tooth decay: At each exam specific handheld dental instruments are used to look for any evidence of tooth decay.
  • X-rays: Regular X-rays are taken for all ages to detect unseen activity below the surface of the gums, such as early signs of bone loss, decay, cysts, or tumors.
  • Oral cancer screening: The total examination of the gums, lips, neck, throat, and face for any early warning signs of the presence of oral cancer.
  • Signs of gum disease: The gums and bone around your teeth will be examined for any signs of gum disease.
  • Status of existing restorations: We will examine the status of any crowns, fillings, or other restorations that you or your family member may have.

By just scheduling these consistent preventative exams, you will significantly reduce the likelihood of you or any family member of developing unwanted dental health issues.

Additional preventative dental services we provide to all ages include:

  • Mouth Guards and Night Guards for all ages.
  • Fluoride Treatment for all ages.
  • Dental Sealants, mostly for the youngsters, but the treatment can be beneficial for any age.
  • Periodontal Therapy if you or your family member is suffering with gum disease.


Even with the best of diligence to maintain your oral health things don’t go as planned. Once in a while, and you might find that your teeth need to be restored or replaced. Missing, cracked, damaged, or even decayed teeth will dull your smile. Did you know it can also affect your oral health? At Inspire Dental of Alexandria we offer restorative dentistry to ensure that your teeth and oral health are back to their former state.


It is important to feel confident in your smile, because being confident in your smile means being confident in yourself. Despite this, many people walk around every day, resigned to the fact that their smile is what it is and there is really nothing they can do to change it. But what if that was not the case? What if improving the aesthetic appearance and/or functionality of your smile was easier than you thought?


Almost 50 million Americans experience tooth-loss every year. Dental bridges have traditionally been the best option if you are in this situation. However, there have been continual technological advancements regarding different types of dental implants. Dental implants are becoming both a common and popular procedure to restore a missing tooth or teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services to Enhance Your Healthy Smile

We provide you and your family with the services you need; but we are also excited to offer you treatment that you may want.

You may be considering a cosmetic dental procedure for a variety of reasons, but the most common reasons involve trying to correct one of the following problems:

  • Spacing and gaps in teeth
  • Discoloration and staining
  • Disproportionately sized or misshapen teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Crooked or overcrowded teeth
  • Missing teeth

These common issues are not age restricted. For example, teeth whitening is applicable to all ages as is orthodontic correction.


5 star

My family has been seeing Dr. White through more than a decade of teeth cleanings, tooth injuries, teeth grinding, cavities, caps, root canal... you name it. The office is 30 minutes away but we wouldn't consider another dentist office. It's not just that Dr. White is a great professional, it's that he and his family run a great office. Scheduling, insurance, hygienists, hours -- everything about interacting with them is first rate.Everybody is knowledgeable, thorough, and kind. They take major insurance, and have even given me advice on which options to select. ...and Dr. White is a big Nats fan, which is a bonus in my book any day.
