Bethesda, MD |
We've been going to Dr. Zainali for approximately 17 years... She has been all three of my children's orthodontist, and now she's mine!!! My children have completed their orthodontic care, and all have beautiful smiles!! I had Invisalign care with Dr. Z, and now have the smile I always wanted. She and her staff are warm, friendly and so professional. I couldn't imagine going to anyone else for our orthodontic care!

I like that I have Dr. Zainali as my Orthodontist. She is very productive and knows what she doing. Also, her staff and assistants are working well with my teeth. I like them because they entertain me a lot and its not booring out there. You will feel that you are having fun when you are there, you won't be able to feel that you are in pain?

They are consistently personable on the phone and in person. It has very nice to have a good experience when getting care for my children! My daughter loves her!

Dr. Zainali says...

"I am passionate about the art and science of orthodontics and have invested most of my life in mastering it. The most rewarding aspects of my job are being able to be a part of an incredible transformation of my patients' teeth and facial structures and witnessing how this transformation influences their self-esteem in a positive way. I also greatly enjoy interacting with patients and their families. Over the course of orthodontic treatment, I look forward to building friendships and relationships with my patients, which I cherish for life. What is exciting about orthodontics is that no single mouth looks exactly the same, so orthodontics remains challenging and fun. My team and I believe in giving personal attention to our patient in a warm and inviting atmosphere where patients feel at home while receiving the highest orthodontic care."
