Smile Analysis

Your smile affects your self-image, and can greatly influence the quality of your interactions with others.  Many people hold back from laughing or smiling because they are uncomfortable with their smile.  The following questions are designed to honestly appraise your smile.  Go to a mirror, smile as wide as you can, and ask yourself the following questions:

Are any of your teeth yellow, stained or somewhat discolored?

Would you like your teeth to be whiter?

Do you have any gaps or spaces between your teeth?

Are any of your teeth turned, crooked, or uneven?

Are you missing any teeth?

Do you see any pitting or defects on the surfaces of your teeth?

Are the edges of any teeth worn down, chipped or uneven?

Do any of your teeth appear too small, short, large or long?

Do you have any prior dental work that appears unnatural?

Do you have any crowns or bridges that appear dark at the edge of your gums?

Do you have any gray, black or silver (mercury) fillings in your teeth?

Do you have a "gummy" smile (too much of your gums show when smiling)?

Are your gums red, sore, puffy, bleeding or receded?

Does the appearance of your smile inhibit you from laughing or smiling?

When being photographed, do you smile with your lips closed instead of flashing a full smile?

Are you self-conscious about your teeth or smile?

Would you like to change anything about the appearance of your teeth or smile?

Testimonials

All service was great! My dental technician did an excellent cleaning and I love their computer program that shows your potential cavities. I was able to see for myself whether I had problems or not.

I felt like they did not over-recommend things and were supportive of preventative methods and giving teeth the chance to bounce back with proper hygeine before jumping to "You need a filling". I had some questions, and they had no problem answering them

10 Stars if Possible!
After the cleaning Dr. Cotes came in and he was great as well. He gave me a full dental exam and even took time to explain the clicking I get in my jaw. He gave me multiple options for teeth whitening and even told me the prices so there would be no up front surprises depending on which method I went with. He took the time to answer any question a threw at him and without trying to rush me out for the next patient. Not really sure what Megan S. is talking about in her review but I did see her only other review on the site was negative as well...just sayin...

Overall:
I would give Dr. Cotes and his staff 10 stars if it was possible. Everyone knows going to the Dentist is a crappy process. I didn't think it was this possible to have a decent time at the Dentist Office and be taken care of in a timely manor!!!

Dr. Cote is just that good. I was referred to Dr. Cote by a friend at work, and I am SO thankful for that reference. The man is a consummate professional, has a friendly staff and has provided me with nothing short of stellar care for the last year. He explained things to me that my lifelong dentist never took the time to do before (like, how I can proactively strengthen the enamel on my teeth). He's got hi-tech gear that indicated areas where future problems might crop up and he's kept an eye on them during every return visit. I have never felt empowered and reassured in a dentist's office, but Dr. Cote is that good.

Dentistry can be a very personal enterprise, and since I had the same dentist since birth, finding a new dentist in DC was a harrowing experience. I actually walked out of three dentists offices (too sketchy for my tastes) before settling going to Dr. Cote. I live in the District, but I'm willing to suffer the indignity of Pentagon City just to have Dr. Cote take care of my teeth.
