Meet Dr. McShane




"I’ve been seeing Dr. Marko and her amazing team for 3 years now. I did my research when it came time to finding a new dentist after moving to DC, growing up in a dentist office caused me to have high standards. (And come on who actually enjoys the dentist?!) Well they blew all my expectations out of the park. They’re professional, thorough, informative, caring and very friendly. They always take the time to go above and beyond- even when I gave them the hardest time about finding the right material for my night-guard. Everyone (except me) had patience and reassurance through the whole process. They make every appointment a pleasant experience!"



"Everyone was pleasant and took all precautions during this time."



"Dr. Marko and her team were amazing at my appointment. All necessary safety precautions were in place. I felt well cared for and appreciate the exceptionally thorough consultation."



"Dr. Marko worked on restoring my 3 front teeth. They were very weak and decayed. I could not bite into anything major for awhile. I was scared my teeth would tear. I am amazed how beautiful and strong my teeth are today. Really amazing!!! Thank you Dr. Marko for your skill set, diligence and patience with me. My smile is back and even better!!! Thank you for all your hard work! 💪 Demitra"



"I love this dentist! Best experience I have ever had, I’ve been going for 3 years and my kids love it there too. Professional, always on time and everyone is so pleasant to deal with. They really deserve this 5 star review. No hesitation at all in recommending!"
