What my Patients Say About me

Dr. Makarita changed my life. For years, I had been extremely hesitant to leave the house alone because I was worried that someone would engage me in conversation, and I envisioned their disgust if I were to accidentally smile or show my teeth. I discontinued my college education because I was fearful of showing my teeth during class discussions; in fact, I withdrew from any activity that might cause me to show my teeth.

I went to many dentists before Dr. Makarita, and I was told that I needed to extract y teeth and get dentures! I refused to believe that and I was fortunate to find Dr. Makarita. He showed me pictures of cases he had done and took the time to listen and I knew I was in the right hands.

Soon after my full-mouth rehabilitation, I realized how long it had been since I had allowed myself to smile (I literally had to massage my cheeks to relieve the muscle fatigue from smiling so much)! A smile is much like life itself, in that you never fully appreciate it until you are faced with losing it.

I am forever grateful to modern dentistry and to Dr. Makarita for restoring my confidence, self-esteem, and with that, the course of my life. I have recommended him to many and will continue to do so.

Never I my wildest dreams could I have anticipated having such a beautiful smile… I went from a person who was afraid to smile, to being featured on the cover of the prestigious Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry! The world seems a nurturing, bright, and loving place when you are able to receive it with a smile. I now have the confidence to enjoy life rather than simply to survive it.

So here I am writing my first review ever, I just have to, because this is definitely the best dentist/specialist I... have ever visited. Since I was a kid I go to different dentists very often because it’s truly hard to find the right one for you. When I was looking over the internet for professionals who can do gum lift, I found Dr. Makarita, so I scheduled consultation. The doctor explained to me everything and because of my busy schedule he did the procedure right after consultation! Everything went great and his assistant/nurse Tanya is amazing too! They made me feel so comfortable and were checking on me all the time after procedure if healing is going good and I feel good. I can’t be more happy with service they provide, the care, and the results !!!!!! I can finally be confident about my smile. I can say there is nobody better than DR MAKARITA!!!!! 12/10 you not gonna regret. Thank you DOCTOR MAKARITAread more

I was looking for a solution for a severe TMJ issue. I didn't realize that it was my earlier braces and dental work... when I was younger that actually contributed to the problem. I was referred to Dr. Makarita, who explained what was causing my pain and made the splint for my jaw that helped with the immediate pain. Since I really liked my teeth and smile, it took me a year to work up the trust and courage to take the next step for a more permanent solution. Despite my initial reservations, I'm very happy with the results and am so thankful to no longer have the TMJ pain. Thank you Dr. Makarita and team. You were right!read more

I came to Dr. Makarita after reading about his impressive credentials and stellar reviews. Previously, for months, I... experienced my jaw locking, involuntary movements, tired jaws and severe neck and shoulder pain associated with TMD. After calling around and visiting many dentist who claimed to treat TMJ, I’m thankful to have met the real deal.This office by far exceeded my expectations in the following ways:1. Communication- I was always able to speak with someone during business hours. At my free consultation, Dr. Makarita thoroughly explained my condition, practical treatment plan and showed me why and how my treatment would proceed. If I had concerns, Dr. Makarita followed up the same day.2. Honest expectation-Because I never have gone though anything like this, it was paramount that expectations were identified allowing me to move though each process of my treatment plan successfully and without severe anxiety.3. Personalization-All staff was professional, personable and inviting. This practice has a very intimate setting. I never felt rushed or that the office over booked.4. Industry leading technology-I felt comfortable and safe especially during the pandemic. My office visits were efficient, and we were able to move forward with my plan as scheduled.I know that my case wasn’t an easy or quick one by far. After treatment of my TMD symptoms, I decided to get a full restoration of my upper arch. My aesthetic concerns were a shifted midline, short misshapen teeth and discolored bonding. Dr. Makarita came up with a personalized plan which addressed my TMD pain and fulfilled my dream to have a gorgeous smile. Dr. Makarita is a master at his craft combining dentistry and artistry in the most precise more

Dr Makarita is one in a million, he is the best I have come across in the Washington metropolitan area ( I’ve lived ... in the area for 43 years). At first his kind and fun personality draws you in; then you witness his attention to details which far surpasses any other dentist I’ve been to. He’s very knowledgeable and his work is very clean. His office is an environment of elegance and class. It’s also relaxing with awesome selection of music.Dr Makarita truly makes you feel that you are unique and special and will make sure that you are happy before you leave his practice.I can’t forget his lovely and smart assistant, Tania. Her gentle style and voice put you at ease.To sum it up - I always look forward to my visit because I know I am in caring hands, nice people, and happy results. 🥰😃read more

10 stars if I could!! I’m too embarrassed to post before pics but I had VERY crooked chipped front teeth 😅 My... teeth were my biggest insecurity ever and I would never smile in pictures or even feel comfortable talking to people because of my teeth. Was recommended Dr. Makarita and so glad I went to see him! From the beginning he was very careful and precise to make sure I would leave with the smile of my DREAMS!!!! He and his assistant made the process easy and painless. So happy and grateful ❤️read more

If you're self-conscious at all about your smile, that almost certainly means you don't smile as much as you want. ... What kind of life is that? Take it from someone who has gone through this: this is life changing. I'm not exaggerating. It helps your personal life and your professional life profoundly. You'll notice that people start treating you differently. Maybe it's because you look so much better, but probably more likely because your smiles make you come across as friendlier. It's not cheap, and I did hesitate about the price, but it's so so worth it that I've never thought twice about how much I paid after I got it done (and I'm far from wealthy).Once you make the decision to do it and start meeting with different cosmetic dentists, you'll realize quickly, as I did, that Dr. Makarita is head and shoulders above everyone else. He's amazing. He loves what he does and it shows in his work. I don't know whether he's the best in the world (he very well might be), but he's unquestionably the best in the area. Before I committed to using him, I asked my orthodontist who he would use. He immediately said Dr. more

I am very happy with the dental work provided by Tysons Aesthetic Dentistry. Dr Makarita did a fabulous job and... continues to work with me to make adjustments as needed. He’s is a true smile maker and an artist who considers all aspects of your situation. I’ve struggled over the years with costly bonding repairs to cover old stains and cracks which never lasted and would yellow over time. Now I have an amazing smile that was designed to be so natural that friends and some family members are left wondering why I look different, younger and more confident. They often ask if I just whitened my teeth? I feel like I found the best there is when it comes to Tysons Aesthetic Dentistry and recommend them highly!read more

Dr. Makarita completed a full mouth reconstruction on me around 2007. Having a beautiful smile has been life-changing.... I have seen many local dentists over the years that marvel over his work. He is as kind as he is brilliant and his dental work is unparalleled. If you are thinking of getting any cosmetic dentistry work done, look no further than Dr. Makarita, you will not regret more

I've had so much dental drama that my teeth could star in their own telenovela! I am so thankful that I found Dr.... Makarita to save me from all of this! I think he's the only dentist in the area with his credentials. If you are having any sort of cosmetic issue you MUST come to him FIRST. Otherwise you will be wasting a lot of time and energy. And your mouth is going to be messed up.I had a chronic issue for about 20 years and a related acute issue for six months and he was able to solve both issues in a matter of two visits over two weeks. It was amazing. I actually misheard him when he gave me the price for the dental work that I needed and I thought the total cost to me was going to be $18,000. I was 100% on board and willing to pay that amount for his work because I saw what he did for other patients and he had a plan and he was confident in his abilities. Thankfully, I just misheard him and the total was closer to $8,000 but I still would have been happy with the results if I had had to pay much, much more. I ended up buying a camper with the money I thought I was going to have to spend on my teeth since I had already set it aside. So thanks for the camper and the teeth, Dr. Makarita!read more

Dr Makarita is an outstanding dentist. His concern for the "whole" patient starts with the well trained and highly... communicative staff. I appreciated the care in ensuring that i was well informed of the overall process and the details of each procedure. Both of my procedures - installing crowns and deep cleaning - were done with a soft touch and much care. The facilities are state of the art and when combined with the easy manner of the staff and their genuine concern for my well being, I could not be more more

Dr. Makarita is best explained as a miracle worker!In my search, I must have researched and quoted at least a dozen... cosmetic dentists. When deciding on such an investment, you want to make sure you’re in excellent hands.I can attest that Dr. Makarita is the best of the best! His numerous accolades are impressive, but his ability to make you feel welcome and at ease is a game-changer.He recently gave me a smile makeover, and I am beyond thrilled with the results! I completely changed my smile to something I’ve wanted for many years. He’s thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate about his work, and most importantly, pleasant to visit.Tanya and his staff were also just as pleasant and knowledgeable throughout the process. They truly made me feel like family.I rarely write reviews but feel compelled to do so with my recent experience. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Makarita to anyone looking for any type of dental work. You’ll be more than pleased with the results! He is a true gem of Cosmetic more
