Seeking DC area dentist for a crown

DC dentist recommendation?

My SO was told some time ago that one of her teeth needed a crown, but she has been delaying getting the work done. She recently moved to DC and found a dentist to do a regular cleaning, but didn't feel comfortable having this dentist do the crown. (the whole visit seemed rushed and the dentists' office seemed staffed by inexperienced temps)

Anyone have a recommendation for a good dentist in DC to do a crown? Thanks! (Metro-accessible locations are best)

This isn't metro accesible - although I suppose you could take a taxi from Franconia/Springfield station. Dr. Allegretti in Springfield does great work - runs a very modern establishment with a great staff. The office has TV's in the ceiling for you to watch, does digital x-rays instantly on the computer screen vice the old film method - and takes just about every insurance out there. He and his staff are very friendly, very professional - and one of the few dentists I've ever had where I feel no pain when they stick the needle in the gums!!

My dentist, before I left the area, was in Arlington - last name Cusumano/Cusamano(sp?) He was superlative.

I was just about to recommend Drs. Cusamano and Stuver in Ballston, but docpops beat me to the punch.

My dentist in the area is Dr. Harold Landis, at

9801 Georgia Ave # 228a
Silver Spring, MD

He is pretty awesome. I came to him really screwed up from a terrible previous dentist, and he was very nice and fixed up my teeth perfectly.

He also convinced me to floss regularly. The man's awesome.
