"My family has been seeing Dr. Sendroff
for about 20 years. I would characterize his approach as
very conservative. He looks out for his patient's best
interests in their dental health while not promoting the
most radical, expensive treatment. Dr. Sendroff is truly the
dentist for cowards -- he goes above and beyond to minimize
pain and discomfort. He has even called us later in the day
after a procedure to check on pain levels. His hygenist,
Lori, is excellent, thorough and a breath of fresh air. His
wife Paula and assistant Brenda are always cheerful and
flexible when you need a fast appointment or to make a
last-minute change in an appointment. Although they are not
a participating provider with any insurance carrier, they
are willing to process dental insurance claims. I think
their charges are often within the reasonable and customary
range. Visiting their practice is like going to an
old-fashioned family physician. They are very committed to
the patient relationship and to giving excellent service. I
would highly recommend them."
"Our family have been patients of Dr.
Sendroff for over 30 years and we believe he is, literally,
unique in the service and care he provides. Dr. Sendroff
offers personalized dental care at reasonable rates in a
caring, supportive atmosphere. We have never been kept
waiting more than 5 mins, never received a "sales job" for
expensive procedures, never felt like just another patient
being hurried through a busy professional service. Dr.
Sendroff (and his staff ) genuinely care about their
patients. He will call after a procedure to check up that
you're doing okay and not in undue pain, suggest a
specialist if he feels they could do it better, discuss
options in dental care giving sound, practical advice about
cost, reliability, and necessity. We called him when we were
on the west coast and needed to see specialist for possible
root canal. He phoned back within minutes with name and
address and phoned the specialist to ask for emergency
appointment. His staff know you by name and provide a
welcoming family atmosphere. They bend over backwards to
help with insurance, billing and appointments when you want
them. The hygienist is excellent. We recommend Dr.
Sendroff without reservation. Tom and Roses Graham"
"I have been a patient of Dr. Sendroff
since 1973. In all of this time, I have been very satisfied
with the treatment he has given me. Almost all of the
reconstructive work he has carried out has lasted over 30
years. Even when I have resisted, he has insisted I take
effective medication to decrease pain. Most important of all
to me, he has always been available whenever I have had a
dental emergency, and when he believes a required treatment
is beyond the limits of his practice, he has referred me to
outstanding specialists who have carried out the required
procedure with ease. His staff is outstanding, especially
his hygienist. They are always careful to check that I have
taken my premedication before carrying out any required
work. They are very efficient in scheduling appointments,
and in revising them, it it is necessary. Robert M.
"A Big City Dentist with a Small Town Feel.
Dr Joel Sendroff and his staff provide what many of us from
smaller towns are looking for; caring, personal and
attentive service, but with all of the modern dentistry
techniques and equipment available in a large metropolitan
area. I have been Dr. Sendroff's patient for approximately
three years, and I feel like he has been my family dentist
for life. For many, visiting the dentist is an unwelcome and
even dreaded necessity. However, visiting Joel's office is
as pleasurable experience as one could ever hope for in
medical care. It is evident that Dr. Sendroff cares deeply
about his patient's well being, and that fact is continually
reinforced throughout each visit. If he isn't completely
satisfied with the work he has done, whether it be cosmetic
or otherwise, he will always take the time to make things
perfect. I'm never uncomfortable when getting my dental work
done, as his professionalism and experience is only matched
by his warm and calming demeanor. Dr. Sendroff, his wife
Paula who works in reception, and his entire staff of dental
technicians, are among the very best and most enjoyable
medical professionals I've ever had the pleasure of dealing
with. Highly Recommended!!!"
"Dr. Sendroff has been my dentist for more than 20 years and
he is the best dentist I ever had. I'm now 52; as a child I
had many cavities, and for the past 15 years my old fillings
have been wearing out, requiring replacement fillings, some
crowns and the occasional root canal. Here is what I most
like about Dr. Sendroff and his office: 1) He explains
everything he is going to do and why, and always answers all
my questions so I understand exactly what's happening.
Sometimes there are two viable treatment options, and Dr.
Sendroff gives me the information we need to decide. 2) I am
very sensitive to pain, and Dr. Sendroff is unsurpassed in
my experience at keeping the pain to a minimum. 3) Even
though he always gives me all the time I need (and I'm sure
he treats all his patients like this!) he is somehow almost
always on time. 4) His office assistants submit the charges
for me to the insurance company - a huge plus! 5) He is
available on the weekends for emergencies. 6) His treatments
are almost always successful. My wife now also goes
to Dr. Sendroff, and is very happy there. After our 8 year
old son's pediatric dentist failed us on the weekends, we
switched him to Dr. Sendroff as well - we should have done
this long ago. J.Nash"
"Our family has been patients of Dr. Sendroff for perhaps 30
years. The staff are particularly pleasant and friendly,
treatments are professional and effective. For health care I
have never experienced a better group. One example that
stands out in my mind occurred when my son was accidentally
butted in the mouth by an opponent during a high school
soccer match. One of his front teeth was "hanging by a
thread." The accident occurred on a Friday night but Dr.
Sendroff was called at home and met my son in his office. He
saved the tooth and my son, some 20 years later, still has
the tooth to go along with a bright smile. Over the years
Dr. Sendroff and his staff have become friends in many ways.
Ask for Lori when you need a cleaning and never leave
without the obligatory flower."
"My husband and I live all the way out in the boondocks
(Frederick, to be specific), but we continue to travel to
Connecticut Ave in Washington DC to receive treatments from Dr. Sendroff. My
husband refuses to receive treatment elsewhere, as he has
been Dr. Sendroff's patient for 31 years. I reluctantly
agreed to the first visit 3 years ago, and never looked back
Billing is a breeze, their chair-side manners are absolutely
top-notch and their front desk service is the best anywhere.
Since we are deaf, Paula makes special effort to reach us by
using e-mails instead of phoning. No other doctor or dentist
has ever done that for us. There's no question they'll see
3rd generation of patients once we have children of our
"I am the sort of dental patient who is traumatized by the
thought of a cleaning, never mind anything more elaborate,
and there are very few practices where I would feel truly
comfortable. With Joel Sendroff, I am (almost) completely at
ease. He has a low key manner that helps minimize my stress
and he is thorough and meticulous in his work. Beyond being
merely accommodating when emergencies arise, he is
personally concerned and more than once has called me at
home after a procedure to check on me. The bonus in the
practice is the office staff: Paula and Brenda are so warm,
so charming that I often spend more time chatting with them
than I do in the dentist's chair. The whole tone of the
practice is summed up by their habit of giving each
departing patient a fresh flower. What's not to love?"
"Dr Sendroff has been my dentist
for 11 years, and my husband's for over 20 years. I have had
no shortage of dental problems, and Dr. Sendroff's expertise
and caring approach has made a big difference for me. He is
a very soft-spoken person, very gentle; what is so
impressive is that he combines this with technical skill and
superb judgment that is based on decades of experience. He
will call us at home in case one of us has any major
procedure to check how we are doing. He also has made us
comfortable about reaching him after office hours if a
problem arises, which we did on more than one occasion.
We recently turned to Dr Sendroff to be the dentist for our
8-year old son. This is a relief because it means we will be
able to count on Dr. Sendroff in emergency situations -
something that turned out to be a major problem with our
son's former (pediatric) dentist.
His practice is very well organized and welcoming, and very
helpful with insurance. Appointments are on time, and the
rare delays are very short."
"My family has been going to Dr.
Sendroff since my husband moved to Washington in the late
70's. In fact, we've never been to any other dentist in the
area. That's saying a lot since we lived for a long time in
McLean and it wasn't exactly convenient. Now our grown up
children go to Dr. Joel and some of our friends do too.
Going to his office is like visiting relatives or friends
who happen to know a lot about taking care of teeth! We love
the entire staff, Paula, Brenda and Laurie."
"Dr. Sendroff is the BEST. Having spent way too many hours
in a dentist chair as a child, and as an adult -- I was
relieved to have been referred to Dr. Sendroff 24 years ago
by my boyfriend at the time, now my husband.
We both have received excellent care by Dr. Sendroff. I have
had numerous crowns put in place by Dr. Sendroff and I'm
always being told what a beautiful smile I have.
Our neighbors in England say I look like a movie star, not
because of my face, but because I have such beautiful teeth
-- all thanks to Dr. Sendroff! I would highly recommend Dr.
Sendroff -- I can't imagine going to any other dentist."
"Dr. Sendroff is unquestionably the finest dentist I have
met. He is skilled and conscientious, and his character and
integrity are outstanding. Gentle always, thoughtful and
truly a loving people person. A visit always leaves me with
more than healthier teeth. He treats and "treats" the whole
person. I was a contented patient for eight years before
moving abroad for nine. One of the greatest pleasures of
returning to Washington was a chance to reconnect with Dr.
Sendroff and his excellent, personable team. As others have
written, treatment follow-up phone calls are standard
practice, and emergencies are attended to without
hesitation. The quality of care is first-rate. You can
relax, trusting you will get the best. I recommend him to
anyone I can."
"I and my family have been loyal patients of Dr. Sendroff
for almost 20 years. I continue to see him even though he is
not part of my dental plan network--the additional
out-of-pocket cost is well worth it to get such high
quality, personalized care! The staff are so good with
children that when my kids were little they loved going to
the dentist so much they did not want me to accompany them
to spoil their fun! Dr. Sendroff even once gave my daughter
a novocaine injection when she was six without her knowing
she just had a shot in her gum! I myself have had extensive
crown and other work, and have always felt myself to be in
the most competent hands. Dr. Sendroff caters to my vanity
and idiosyncratic preferences, e.g., he makes the entire
front of my crowns with porcelain to avoid the possibility
of unsightly exposure of metal rims by future gum recession.
I would recommend him to anyone without reservation!"
"What a wonderful, family-style dental practice! From the
minute you walk in the door, you are treated to a warm
welcome and immediately made to feel at ease. The staff
knows each patient, and recalls key details of prior visits
so that one truly feels well cared for. Excellent, excellent
knowledge of dentistry, and excellent follow-up as well.
Although Dr. Sendroff does not specialize in pediatric
dentistry, for years we've brought both of our children to
see him, with great success. Check out the picture wall of
child visitors -- a true testament to how kind all of Dr.
Sendroff's staff is! I have frequently recommended Dr.
Sendroff to friends and colleagues seeking an excellent
dental practitioner and will continue to do so."
"Dr. Sendroff is a wonderful dentist. He's highly skilled
and takes sufficient time to do a procedure properly.
Following an appointment, he will often phone you to check
to see if you are feeling any pain and whether the procedure
was performed successfully. He has an excellent chair-side
manner, always making his patients feel comfortable. He also
takes the trouble to explain what he is doing and why, which
also acts to allay patient anxiety. His secretary is more
than accommodating to find appointment dates and times that
are convenient. Dr. Sendroff also has an excellent hygienist
who does a thorough and careful cleaning."
"Dr. Joel Sendroff is a rare find in the medical profession.
He is both competent and caring. He, along with his staff,
create a wonderful atmosphere. I am at ease from the moment
I walk into his office and have complete confidence in his
ability. I have needed several procedures over the years
including filling replacements and a crown and Dr. Sendroff
always makes sure that I understand exactly what is
happening and that I am comfortable at all times. Thanks to
Dr. Sendroff I have excellent oral health and my husband
says my smile lights up a room.
Now Dr. Sendroff is taking care of the next generation in
our family. My 3 year old son gets so excited to see Dr.
Joel and to sit in the chair. He has showed no hesitation
because Dr. Sendroff creates such a safe and fun place for
him. I'm so excited to see my son start a lifetime of
healthy oral habits thanks to Dr. Sendroff. I highly
recommend Dr. Joel Sendroff."
"I've been a patient of Dr. Sendroff's for over 20 years. He
has the unusual combination of two traits that often don't
exist together in the medical profession - skill and a
wonderful personality. Dr. Sendroff is exceedingly careful
and thoughtful in both his work and with his relationships
with his patients. I have complete trust in his judgment and
always appreciate how thoroughly he explains the options I
may have in any treatment I need. Dr. Sendroff is also very
available in the case of a dental emergency. When my son
recently broke off part of his front tooth in an accident,
we couldn't have asked for more thorough or better care for
him than what he received from Dr. Sendroff. Not many people
can say that they look forward to going to their dentist. I
am proud to say I can."
