Dr. Salartash's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Salartash "Dr. Sheri Salartash is by all measures an exceptional Cosmetic and General Dentist. She is a highly trained, highly skilled doctor who brings a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience to her practice. She is very passionate about dentistry and knew by the age of 10, that dentistry is all she ever wanted to do. Dr. Sheri loves sharing her passion for dentistry with her staff and patients. Dr. Sheri focuses on comprehensive dentistry, aesthetics and orthodontics all with a holistic mindset. Dr. Sheri has an abundance of experience at several cutting edge dental practices in Virginia, Washington D.C. and Iowa. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University and is honored to have been recognized as one of "America's Top Dentists" by Consumers' Research Council of America 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Dr. Sheri is a Fellow with the Academy of General Dentistry, a Fellow with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a Fellow with the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics. Some of her other professional membership affiliations are: American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM), American Academy of Facial Cosmetics. Some highlights of her continuing education include the Spear Education Occlusal Studies program, Biohorizons Implants, Straight Wire Orthodontics, Orthodontics Appliance Therapy, Invisalign, Six Month Smiles braces, Trudenta or Dentomandibular Sensorimotor Dysfunction Therapy, Functional Cosmetics and Aesthetics, Lumineers, Conscious DOCS sedation, Botox and dermal fillers, sleep apnea appliances and courses in holistic dentistry that concentrates on whole body health. Dr. Sheri Salartash graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University of Dental Medicine and is a holistic and natural focused mouth doctor. She focuses on the dental contributions to medical symptoms and natural wellness. Dr. Sheri takes a comprehensive view of dentistry and spends a lot of her time on aesthetics and physiologic orthodontics for children and adults at Dental Excellence of Delray in Alexandria, Virginia. Dr. Salartash seeks to help patients with not just dentistry, but healthy body lifestyles. She has studied Spear's Occlusion, Straight Wire Orthodontics, Orthodontics Appliance Therapy, Trudenta or Dentomandibular Sensorimotor Dysfunction Therapy, Functional Cosmetics and Aesthetics, sleep apnea appliances and courses in holistic dentistry that concentrates on whole body health. Her office provides comprehensive dental care such as orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, soft tissue laser procedures, implants, whitening and of course preventative care. Dental Excellence offers treatment for children as young as newborn that are tongue tied who may be experiencing problems feeding. Dr. Sheri notes that screenings for traditional and physiological orthodontics should start early, since between the ages of 2-6 years is a critical time for development. This time can have a huge effect on jaw development, alignment and airway management. For orthodontics, Dr. Sheri notes that the best results happen before the age of 12. Dr. Sheri believes strongly in patient education and insists her staff and patients work as a team to create a treatment plan. Several noticeable differences set Dental Excellence apart relating to a whole health and naturalistic approach. They utilize low dose digital x-rays, the office is mercury free and they follow mercury safe removal. Dental Excellence uses only the highest quality, biocompatible materials for fillings. The office has advanced water filter system and offers NU Calm as a natural relaxation technique instead of nitrous oxide. Dr. Sheri is a new mom herself and dedicated to providing a full range of services to make your child healthier and your experience positive."
