Our patients leave smiling
Two Implants, Three Root Canals, couple cleanings, cavity fixes and a partridge in a pear tree. Simply cleaning up all the messy Uncle Sam work. I have spent so much time in the chair with these folks. Love the front office and billing staff, the hygienists, and the crew that fixes my grill over and over again. Forever indebted. Forever grateful. You will not find a better establishment / crew.
Reena is amazing. I used to suffer from really bad anxiety at the Dentist but since I’ve been going to Reena my anxiety has subsided and I actually look forward to my visits. She is kind and friendly and really thoughtful. Everyone at the practice is friendly and helpful. Dr. Lee is awesome! She makes getting a tooth filled seem like a walk in the park. I highly recommend this practice and e…
Since I have been going to Smiles, I have lived in three cities in two states. Even when I’m not living locally, I keep going back because of their superb customer service (Stephanie!!!) and expert dental care.
I have had a major fear of the dentist of as long as I can remember. Neglecting my teeth was a big mistake, my first visit to Smiles was a emergency visit to have a abscess removed from my month. Over the past couple of years I have spent a fair amount of time in a dentist chair. I can honestly say that if it weren’t for Stephanie and Dr.B, I would not continue to improve my oral hygiene. Th…
I found Dr. Rayek, and hygienist, Heather, to be top notch in terms of professionalism, thoroughness, and welcoming-nature. I will refer my friends.
I hate going to the dentist, but I always feel better knowing that I am going to Smiles. The staff is very helpful and skillful – especially my hygienist Homeira. Also, Dr. Rayek is a talented professional with a great sense of humor. Plus, the admin staff is always up-front about any cost that may not be covered by insurance. Billing is always accurate. Brush and floss daily and your visit…
I have been a client with this practice for several years. I have always received great care and several of my family members come here as well. If someone asks me about dentist I don’t hesitate to recommend.
Dr. Rayek and his team are truly outstanding and really make you feel welcome. I’ve had extensive work done, and the service has been amazing. I’ve had to reach Dr. Rayek on a weekend due to severe pain and his response time and making sure I received proper treatment until I was able to come back to the office, was exceptional. I’ve referred my family and co-workers!
I have gone to Smiles for years and am never disappointed! The doctors and staff are all very professional and go above and beyond to make your experience a great one. I highly recommended Smiles to any one I can!
Wonderful staff, superior expertise, and a lovely environment.
I highly recommend Smiles at Fairfax Corner, the Staff is always friendly and I always receive exceptional service
I’m a new patient at Smiles and really love the team and environment of the office. Dr. Rayek was professional and informative, and took the time to answer my questions. I admire his commitment to his work and his use of innovative technology in the office. My teeth cleaning was also great– Reena did a thorough job (and I am really particular about cleanings!) She gave me tips on how t…
Dr. Rayek and Reena have been taking care of me for many years and the reason for that is due to the way they make their patients feel, like family! Their friendly and relaxed atmosphere is what everyone wants from a dentist visit and after seeing many dental offices, I couldn’t recommend a better option than Smiles at Fairfax Corner. You won’t regret it.

My family and have been going to Smiles for 7 years. Over those 7 years, the constant has been friendly faces and high quality service. I can’t recommend Smiles enough to anyone looking for a great dentist. Dr. Riyek and his team at the front desk and back in the chairs are top notch. I’d be remiss, if I didn’t mention Fairfax Corner’s favorite Reena. What an opportunity to…

Once you enter the door, you will never want to go to any other dental office. From the moment you enter, the friendliest staff greets you with your name. They never run behind and are always on time. The office is pristine clean, warm and welcoming. They provide coffee and updated magazines, which I appreciate. The hygienists are professional, courteous and caring. And I just love and appreciate…
So happy I chose Smiles at Fairfax Corner as my dentist. The staff is incredibly friendly, professional, and knowledgble. I did Invisalign invisible braces to fix crowding and crooked teeth and felt comfortable and taken care of throughout the entire process. I recommend Smiles to all of my friends and family!
I’d describe them as the “Cadillac of dentist offices.” I’ve been coming to Dr. Rayek for close to two decades. The staff are pleasant and Dr. Rayek is an excellent dentist. The financial team wants to make sure you get all the bang for your insurance buck. I highly recommend their services.

They treat my whole family, including two teens with a knack for cavities. They are fabulous! Very friendly, helpful with fears and concerns and billing questions, they are personable, their hygienists are gently and thorough – (sometimes too thorough !), and of course … ahem! … their dentists are not bad looking either.
The office is well organized and friendly. Wait times are minimal. The dental hygienists and dentists are knowledgeable and thorough. . I trust them completely to provide me with excellent care.
