How To Pick The Right Dentist


Many dental practices will have their doctor’s biographies listed on their websites. Take a look at these and get to know the doctors. It’s important to note if they have a high level of experience and expertise to ensure that you are in good hands. For example, at our dental practice, our doctors are Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley.

Dr. Sinclair earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University. He has spent additional time in postgraduate training, studying under renowned leaders in functional and esthetic dentistry.

Dr. Reichley received his formal training at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine. After receiving his DMD, he served as a dental officer in the U.S. Navy for 4 years completing 2 humanitarian deployments taking him to countries in Central America, Western Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Baltic Sea.


Once you have found a doctor you like, check out their available dental services. It’s important that your dentist is capable of providing a wide range of dental services to best meet your needs. Many patients will stay with their dentist for many years following finding one that they like. It’s important that your dentist goes above and beyond providing dental cleanings and exams.

You’ll want to find someone who can offer services to smiles at all stages within their dental health journeys. At our practice, we provide comprehensive cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services all under one roof. From thorough oral health and wellness care to restorative dentistry options to replace missing teeth, our Virginia Beach dentists can provide you with the services your smile needs right now as well as in the future.


One of the best ways to learn more about a dentist office that you are interested in is to review their patient testimonials. Patient testimonials will give you a good idea of what to expect out of an office’s patient experience. Check out this amazing testimonial from one of our recent patients:
