time with new patients to explain procedures, answer questions, and address any concerns. In his commitment to family dentistry, he encourages children to become active partners in maintaining good oral health. Patients of all ages learn the value of daily brushing and healthy diet. To make the twice-annual visits convenient for everyone, family members can schedule appointments on the same day as close together as possible.

A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Halim works with patients who have stained, broken or uneven teeth, as well as old, unsightly dental work to improve their appearance. Bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers, contouring and reshaping are just some of the procedures that can be applied to enhance your smile. A teeth whitening treatment, also known as bleaching, is one of the most popular and economical ways to enhance your smile. Dr. Halim will consult with you on which of the whitening treatments – in-office or DIY – is best for you.

Dr. Halim works with dental implants teams as a restorative dentist. The implant is actually a prosthetic or artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jaw to anchor a replacement tooth or bridge. This restorative treatment involves oral surgery and recovery time before the new tooth, a crown, is placed. The customized restoration – crown – will match your natural teeth.

”To be a cosmetic dentist in DC, and still provide neighborhood dentistry with an emphasis on preventative family dental care is everything I value in a practice, all rolled into one.” — Dr. Halim
