In my book, Neil Starr is the Michael Jordan of his world, playing above the rim at all times. He sets the standard when it comes to passion for the work, meticulous attention to detail, and communication with the patient, He managed my first implants eighteen years ago and another recently. Every dentist involved in the procedure sees him as a superstar, regarding his work as unsurpassed for quality. Several of my friends who are dentists have pulled me aside and said, "Let me look at that." And that's followed by, "Wow, is he good.'"

Dr. Starr is a consummate craftsman -- and artist. A number of my teeth had become abraded (abfraction, in dentists' lingo), and their alignment was far from perfect. To my mind, this cast a shadow every time I spoke or smiled. Dr. Starr replaced some of my front teeth with crowns, and adjusted their orientation to subtly improve the contours of my mouth. The effect is beautiful, natural -- and I'm no longer self-conscious when I smile! Getting this work done was the best investment I ever made.

"I have nothing but the highest regard for Dr. Neil Starr and his practice. I have been a patient of his for a good number of years and have consistently found him to exhibit nothing but the highest quality of work, professionalism, patient care and attention. He has helped work wonders and given me a level of dental functionality and appearance that are truly exceptional."


Neil masterminded and performed a fully dental reconstruction to esthetic and functional perfection about 7 years ago. This included 2 root canals, 1 root canal retreat, lower and upper gum surgery needed to have sufficient bone to crown and 24 crowns. During the first 5 minutes of the initial exam, Neil advised me of the root canal issues that needed to be addressed and gum surgery to perform the full dental reconstruction. The other top regarded prosthodontists I interviewed did not bring up these issues. His reputation as one of the best dental talents in the world is well deserved. B.W.


Dr. Starr was kind enough to take over my mouth with a terrible bite problem, accompanied with cracked teeth from night clenching. Now, I have a perfect night guard and cracked teeth replaced with natural-looking caps. The outcome has added a pleasing, bright smile.


I am very appreciative of the time and effort Dr. Starr spent in developing a treatment plan for me.  He devised a creative solution to a unique problem, thus allowing for a successful prosthetic installation after dental implant surgery.  I couldn’t be more pleased with the final result.  Dr. Starr and his staff are the best.


I have been a patient of Dr. Neil Starr for over ten years. Having undergone four dental restorations, I have recognized that treatment by the best person is the most economic option.  The work has stood the test of time.  His ability and willingness to see me for emergency problems has been exemplary. As a neurosurgeon with over 100,000 hours of training and experience, I understand dedication and total commitment.  Dr. Neil Starr is more than world class.  He is possibly the best in North America.


There is no finer dental practice in DC.


Everyone in the office is lovely. It's a pleasure to see you all.


The information provided by the Dental Hygienist was very informative and valuable. She does an exceptional job.


Dr. Neil Starr and his team have been the very best health decision that I have ever made. He is the absolute best dental professional I have ever met. I did not believe that practices like his existed in Washington -- New York City, Beverly Hills, Palm Beach, maybe -- but not Washington. I am very grateful for the transformation that I have experienced.


Dr. Starr is the Marc Chagall of Dentistry. I have had serious teeth problems since age 10, as a result of a car accident. Several teeth were knocked out and shoved into the roof of my mouth. I have been wearing a removable appliance for many decades. And then I found Dr. Starr. Dr. Starr has performed miracles in rebuilding damaged bones and developing the needed bone structure to receive six implants. He is a perfectionist in a field where this trait is an essential quality. He is fantastically precise on parts of bone where an error if only a millimeter can affect the ability to place the implants successfully. Hence affecting your ability to eat, speak, and other less obvious functions.

He is always studying, changing, and upgrading to remain current. Yet, Dr. Starr is also an artist who can discuss how various types of teeth convey personality. Once, an endodontist who was performing a root canal on one of my teeth exclaimed, "Dr. Starr's implant-supported crowns are so realistic, I can't tell them apart from your real teeth!" I am deeply grateful for all Dr. Starr's care.
