Patient Testimonials

Drs. Wooddell and Passaro are the best dentists in the whole DMV area. They have taking care of my teeth for 38 years. They have given me special care throughout the years and I appreciate all their expertise in their many areas of dentistry. If you want to keep your teeth for a long time, you should definitely have them as your dentists. They are the best!

I had a wonderful experience with DR Passaro. This dental group is exceptional so professional. Treated me like family. I would recommend this dental group to anyone. Very good experience.

I can not tell you how impressed I am since I changed to Dr. Woodell's practice. I'm a retired teacher and my dentist retired so I switched to my wife's dentist. I thought I was receiving good care before but this dental practice took it up several notchs. The whole staff is friendly and know my name. Try it once and you'll go back. Excellent!

Wooddell & Passaro is simply the best dental practice in the area. I have been a patient for over 15 years. Dr. Woody and Dr. Joe are incredible dentists...they even teach other dentists! Not only is the quality of the dentistry superior, the level of patient care the team provides is unmatched. Nowhere else will you find a dental or medical practice that has more dedicated and patient-focused doctors and staff members.

I have never had a better dentist in my life. As one who was terrified of dentists, I would never think of going to anyone else. The entire staff puts you at ease from the moment you walk in the front door, and Drs. Passaro and Woodell are so patient and kind. #theyreworthit

My experience with Dr. Wooddell was wonderful. He really made me feel comfortable by explaining every detail of the restorative work being done to my teeth. I am very pleased with the results and most importantly I am more confident with my smile!

Allison K.

Dr. Wooddell and his team of experts work together as a team to provide a level of service I've never experienced before, and won't ever leave. When I arrive at my appointment, no matter if it is a cleaning or a filling, I can tell that the staff have all been made aware of my appointment and why I am coming. In fact the entire team meets in the morning daily, before the office opens, to review the roster of patients due in, and their particular needs. It just feels so welcoming and thorough! I also trust Dr. Wooddell and his team implicitly. Woody, his partner, and his team have won many awards for their approach to dentistry, and because he teaches widely, Woody stays current on the leading best practices. His patients benefit from that rigor. Having gone to a widely diverse bunch of dentists over the years, I experienced a mixture of really bad dentistry, and have received some almost defective treatments. This includes crowns that cracked because the insertion put my whole bit off balance and implants that failed. Woody treats the whole mouth as a system, and he has come up with really innovative solutions for complex treatment issues I've experienced. I actually love going to the dentist, because I know that my experience is going to be the highest quality, and I also know that Dr. Wooddell stands behind his work
