"The Best Dentist I've Ever Had..." 5-Star Reviews
Dr Hughes has been my dentist for 15+ years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I have had implants, crowns, cavities, general cleanings and xrays done at his facility. Top of the line care. His staff is understanding and professional. Dr Hughes is extremely knowledgeable, answering every question I have, addressing concerns and giving me piece of mind with the care of my teeth. I would highly recommend his office.View On Google
I've had anxiety over dentists since I was a kid and Dr. Hughes is hands down the best dentist I've ever had. He never makes you feel like you're just another patient, but instead makes you feel comfortable and at ease. He explains procedures beforehand and takes the time to educate you on what is going on in your mouth. The office staff are equally amazing and are warm and welcoming from the second you walk in. I wish I had stumbled upon this practice years ago and would highly recommend him to anyone.View On Google

Are you suffering from tooth loss?
Dr. Hughes Is a Top Implantologist He Can Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
If you are missing teeth, consider restoring your smile with state-of-the-art dental implants. Implants are threaded titanium posts designed to replace tooth roots and prevent bone recession after tooth loss. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, they can support dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.
Wondering if dental implants can work for you? Contact Dr. Hughes. He has been placing implants for over 20 years and is an authority in the field of implant dentistry. He uses the latest materials and advanced technology to help Sterling, VA, patients experience the many benefits of implants. These include...
Natural Look and Feel
Our dentist custom designs implant-supported restorations to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth. Implant-supported restorations are permanently attached to your implants, so they will look and feel like a natural part of your smile.
Maximum Stability and Longevity
Implants secure crowns, bridges, and dentures to the jawbone, so your restoration will stay put while you speak and chew. While your implant-supported restoration will need to be replaced every ten years or so, the titanium posts themselves can last a lifetime.
Better Oral Health
Dental implants are the only dental treatment designed to stop bone loss. Just like tooth roots, these titanium posts stimulate the jawbone, prevent bone recession, and keep your jawline intact.
"My experience with Dr. Hughes has been amazing. He is a straight-forward dentist. Thank you Dr. Hughes for all that you do." Pamela Frye

Certified in Dental CT How We Use Computed Tomography
Dr. Hughes is the only dentist in the state of Virginia certified to perform dental computed tomography (CT). Compared to traditional 2-D x-rays, 3-D CT scans produce detailed images of your teeth, jawbone, and facial structures in a single scan without exposing you to harmful radiation. These images are extremely helpful in diagnosing oral conditions in their earliest stages. CT technology can also improve the success of oral surgery, allowing the dentist to take highly detailed digital images of the mouth to better plan and execute complicated procedures.
