Gary Ellenbogen, DDS General Dentist
Dr. Ellenbogen has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and has been a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry since 1995. He has invested hundreds of hours in continuing education, acquired the latest equipment and materials, and located the best dental labs in the country all with a single purpose in mind – to help his patients achieve perfection in their smiles. With the use of advanced cosmetic imaging, Dr. Ellenbogen can show his patients what their smile will look like when he is done…before the first tooth is even touched. As his patient, you get to participate in all of the decisions about your care and how your smile will look when treatment is completed.
Born in Scarsdale, New York, Dr. Ellenbogen attended Brown University where he graduated with honors. He graduated from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in 1979, after which he worked for the Public Health Department in Newport, Vermont for one year providing dental services to the underprivileged residents of the area.
Dr. Ellenbogen moved back to northern Virginia and opened his own practice in October 1988. He later moved that rapidly growing practice to its current location in Vienna and subsequently merged his practice with Dental Associates, the largest and most progressive group in northern Virginia.
“Communicating with my patients is the thing I love most about being a dentist – helping them see what is possible for their smile and then helping them achieve it. Restoring a beautiful smile can be transformational, creating a new self-confidence and self-image. I really love what I do.”
