What our patients are saying…

  • Rina C. – Springfield, VA

    Why do I love going to Dr. Wooddell and his wonderful staff?  For the professional, personable and straightforward care I receive there.  The staff are all very kind and treat me like family!  I always leave Dr. Wooddell's office with a bright, confident smile!

  • Irene W – Burke, VA

    For many decades I had been plagued with serious teeth, gum, and periodontal problems.  I was referred to Dr. Wooddell by a friend and he came up with a treatment plan and coordinated all of my appointments.  Because of Dr. Wooddell's expertise and professionalism, this incredible man is responsible for totally changing my life.  I owe him my self-image, a healthy mouth, beautiful teeth and my smile!  His staff is as warm, friendly, and professional as he is and I will always be grateful for all of them.

  • Sandrah P. – Fairfax, VA

    I am an oddity -- I love going to the Dentist but I know most people do not!  I recommend Dr Wooddell and his team of amazing professionals.  I have been a patient of theirs for nearly 9 years and I have referred many people.  I do not take referrals lightly; I truly believe they are the best in their field.  They really care about their patients as people on a personal level; explaining how caring for your mouth leads to better overall health and prevention.

  • Ric H. – Fairfax Station

    “Dr. Wooddell has been my dentist for almost 10 years now and I have nothing but the highest regard for him and his entire professional staff. I first saw Dr. Wooddell for emergency care, and his genuine concern for relieving my pain, and ensuring that I had immediate care of an oral surgeon, truly convinced me to leave my previous dentist and start seeing him. Now, my entire family has Dr. Wooddell as their dentist, and I’ve been encouraging others to consider switching to his practice. Dr. Wooddell’s approach, along with his entire friendly staff, is to be thorough and considerate of every patient. I highly recommend J. Douglas Wooddell Gentle Dentistry.”


  • Susan R. – Springfield

    I have been a patient of Dr. Wooddell’s for about 5 years. I had gone to my previous dentist every 6 months and had done everything he told me, but when I  arrived at Dr. Wooddell’s doorstep, based on a friend’s recommendation, my teeth and gums were a mess. He and his staff have worked with me to correct all the problems and I can now smile with my teeth showing! It is a small office and I feel close to everyone there – they are so kind and supportive.  I trust Dr. Wooddell and think his work is top notch. Also, the staff and hygenist are all fantastic. A+++!!
