    I think the most important review of a cosmetic dentist is the one that stands the test of time. I went to Dr. Polowitz to cap my upper teeth about 10 years ago. It was a fail from the start. He capped one tooth that turned out to be broken. After extreme pain while chewing, the doctor determined that the cap had to be removed and the tooth extracted. I was not reimbursed for the payment for a cap on a dead tooth. When the day came and my caps were all installed, one of Dr. Polowitz's attendants pointed out to him that the gap between teeth was much too wide. This would lead to food getting stuck and tooth decay. But rather than have Dr. Polowitz fix what he installed, I sought out a new dentist. Thankfully I found Dr. Neil Starr, and wound up having Dr. Starr replace the front 6 caps that Dr. Polowitz had installed, and which I paid him for. There was never any reimbursement for his many errors. So, here it is 10 years later.. Of the remaining 6 caps that Dr. Polowitz had installed, which I did not jave Dr. Starr replace, 5 fell off. I have no 'teeth' at all, in the upper back of my mouth, and my smile is impacted as you can see in the photo. When I reached out to Dr. Polowitz 2 years ago, and told him about all the caps falling off, he remarked, 'They're only supposed to last 10 years'. He shrugged off the whole thing. His insouscient attitude was in keeping with his care in the initial installation. Well, by way of comparison, EVERY cap that was installed by Dr. Neil Starr (also of Washington DC) is still intact. Today, I am extremely thankful that I paid the large sum, at that time, to have a different dentist replace my front caps.. What would I look like now had I not? The photo tells the whole story, and this is just as much a good review for Dr. Starr, as it is a lament about Dr. Polowitz. I'm amazed that he's still in business. Bottom line - It's not just how the teeth look when he puts them into your mouth. Beware..

    Dr. Pollowitz is an absolute amazing dentist! He is so friendly and caring. I honestly love going to his office for any of my dental needs. His upbeat, outgoing personality creates a welcoming and comfortable environment that as a patient appreciate. Ashley the hygienist has a great personality, that is makes it so easy to have a cleaning appointment with her. Dr. Pollowitz and Dr. Brown’s office environment is exponential. From Angie’s warm welcome and the front desk staff to the wonderful hygienist Ashley to Dr. Pollowitz! Highly recommend to give them a call. They will assist you with all you dental needs and are very accommodating to work schedules. You’re smile will thank you!

    Drs. Brown and Pollowitz are excellent. They are current in technology, will do everything possible to treat and save your teeth before recommending more expensive solutions. They also have the best, calmest, kindest chair-side manner. They are extremely attuned and responsive to any discomfort or anxiety. I highly recommend them for their overall dentistry excellence. In addition, they would wonderful for people who are very anxious about dental work.

    If somebody told me five years ago that one day I would be leaving a glowing review for my dentist, I would say—firstly—what an oddly specific thing to tell me. Secondly, I would say they’re crazy. But five years ago, I hadn’t met Dr. Pollowitz, Dr. Brown, and the staff at the Washington Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. I have never, and can confidently say I will never, find a dentist and an office as excellent as this one. Every single person at the Center is warm, kind, and professional and have taken the best care of me and my family. I have recommended them to friends and I have recommended them to strangers. I have even recommended them on a first date. The last time I visited, I had to get a filling done. Now, there was a time when I would go through bags of Mike & Ike’s like a pitching coach with a bag of sunflower seeds. My diet looked like that of Will Ferrell’s character in Elf. My point is I’m no stranger to fillings. I don’t particularly look forward to them. Dr. Pollowitz’s filling, however, was done so comfortably and so quickly that I felt sad at not being able to stay there longer. This is truly a special place.

    The whole office is great! From the front office staff that greats me with a smile and helps with scheduling and insurance, to the Drs Pollowitz, Brown and the staff that do the cleanings and X-rays, everyone is kind and professional. I’ve been a patient for well over 20 years and have been very satisfied!
