Q: What makes your practice unique?
A: Our practice philosophy is rooted in the belief that when old-fashioned service meets modern technology, exceptional dental care is achieved. We believe that our strong family values are what truly sets us apart. My father, Louis J. LaVecchia, DDS, opened this practice in 1971, and we have been serving Arlington families with advanced and comprehensive dentistry since. We treat every patient as though they are part of our own family, with care, respect and kindness. And we are proud that our staff has been with us for many years.
Q: What is your professional/educational background?
A: I graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry, one of this country’s oldest dental programs with a longstanding tradition of comprehensive curricula, including both academic and clinical training. I also learned a lot from my father. In addition to opening his practice upon returning from his tour of duty in Vietnam, he was a full-time faculty member in Georgetown University’s Department of Operative Dentistry (1970-90). Now retired, many of the dentists in the area will say they learned everything they know from Dr. Louis J. LaVecchia.
Q: How do you employ new technology to help your patients?
A: Our experienced team offers comprehensive dentistry, including general, cosmetic, periodontal and implant dentistry. We use advanced technology to deliver a more comfortable experience and more precise diagnoses. Dentistry Powered by CEREC® allows us to provide same-day custom crowns—no messy impressions and no long wait for your permanent one. We are also a provider of Invisalign® Clear Aligners.
