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."

Patient Comments (8)
in Springfield |
I'm 62 and have age-related dental issues. Dr. Salartash was very thorough in her examination, and, without lecturing, gave me a plan to improve my dental health. They took pictures and walked me through the process as she showed me the pictures so that I could see what she was talking about. Very friendly, welcoming office staff and hygienist. Very glad I made the decision to change dentists. Looking forward to working with her and her staff to get my mouth back to tip-top health.
in Alexandria, MD |
The doctor and the staff and Dental Excellence are really good. Dr. Salartash has a very friendly demeanor and everyone is nice. The reason for the review though is because she is so competent, she is the most qualified dentist I know. Take a look at her wall, there are a ton of awards and certificates. She really loves dentistry.
in McLean, VA |
She'll make your appointment unforgettable. I never had any pain or discomfort walking out of her office. She is very skillful and listens to me about my dental concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Salartash.
in Sterling, VA |
Dr. Salartash is such a great dentist. I was going to her when she was in dentistry school and continued to be her patient for the past 9 years. Her techniques and caring nature would make my visits pleasant.
in Burke, VA |
Dr Salartash is one of the most compassionate, professional and gentle dentists I've ever mer. She's thorough and patient with each patient she sees. I've had a lot of dental work done by other dentists and therefore have a bit of anxiety when seeing a dentist. Dr Salartash does a great job making me feel relaxed and listens to my concerns. She does a great job and is able to fadjust my bite if needed, which is a skill not all dentists have. I highly recommend her!

Such a talented and amazing individual. I am so happy to be her patient. She is caring and compassionate not only about my teeth but about my whole health. She has helped me with my overall health and gave me guidance to improve so many other health issues. She listens to my stories and she treats me like family. I feel very comfortable with her.
in Lorton, VA |
Dr. Sheri is a great dentist. I am so happy to have found her. She helped me in so many ways with smile and I feel so much more confident now.
in Alexandria, VA |
Dr Sheri added bonding to the bottom of my two front teeth several years ago and it's still there. Other dentists tried to do it but I never lasted more than a month. Her experience shows.
