Meet Dr. Adam Filali & Staff
Welcome to Dental Bright, a single-stop office for all of your dental needs. Dr. Filali and his team will provide comprehensive treatment for every aspect of your dental care including implant placement and restorations (crowns).
Dr. Filali’s philosophy is to treat every patient with VIP care. In order to do so, his office was designed in collaboration with renowned architects to create an atmosphere of serenity and calmness. The space is also comfortable, luxurious, and reminiscent of a rooftop atelier. Dr. Filali aims to “take the pain out of dentistry” and thinks of his practice as an oral health and dental wellness center.
Dr. Filali completed his degree in General Dentistry in 1996, followed by three years of intensive training in the study of Prosthodontics, the discipline focusing in full mouth rehabilitation. This field of dentistry pays special attention to the esthetic appearance and clinical reconstruction of the mouth. Dr. Filali received his Prosthodontic specialty training at the highly esteemed and prestigious Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2009. Pursuing his specialized interests, he continued his education by acquiring numerous certifications and credentials in this field.
Dr. Filali is the recipient of multiple accolades, including awards in dental research and clinical expertise. He is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American College of Prosthodontics, American Dental Association, and Northern Virginia Dental Association. Dr Filali is also fluent in English, Arabic, and French.
In his spare time, Dr. Filali enjoys traveling and assisting those with no access to dental care in international settings, most recently in Guatemala.
