Growing up in Arlington, I’ve always seen Dr. Shaeffer and she is the best! I love going to the dentist, which I know is probably not very common to say! I also always have Sydney, the dental hygienist, and she takes such good care. My smile is in great shape thanks to them!

I’ve been coming to Dr. Schaeffer for 8 years, she and her team are so knowledgable and kind. I used to have a major fear of going to the dentist, but no more! They’ve put me at ease and taught me better practices for oral health.

- Elizabeth G.

MANY years ago, my parents would take me to the husband & wife team of Dr. & Dr. Powell in Clarendon. When the Powells retired, Dr.Lakas and his colleagues took over their practice. Dr. Lakas provided superb dentistry services for many decades. Recently, Dr. Lakas retired and Dr. Brigid Mooney took over. I just left there and found her to be very pleasant and highly competent. I hate to see Dr. Lakas go, but he couldn't have picked a better successor than Dr. Mooney.

Going here for over decade, when only the best will do, go here and see Dr Lakss or Dr Shaeffer, both are excellent

- Patrick P.

As a child terrified from experiences with a former dentist, I was taken to Dr. Lakas. Now as an adult, I hate my mouth/teeth to be touched by anyone else! He is a gentle, kind, excellent, dentist who takes the time necessary to do a great job! We are growing young together and I can only pray he will never retire - at least as long I still have my teeth!
