I had a painless crown prep. He is awesome.
—Mark S.
After researching options online, I booked an appointment for my girlfriend with Dr. Itskovitch at the Gaithersburg location for a lengthening procedure and two crowns. She had a last minute work issue come up on the day of her appointment, and had to call the office to try to reschedule with only a few hours notice. The receptionist was wonderful - she called the other people with appointments around the same time to see if they could change to allow my girlfriend's appointment to be moved to later. The appointment was moved and Dr. Itskovitch even stayed late to finish the lengthening procedure. I'm not trying to encourage folks to change their appointments last minute - this instance was a true necessity - but we really appreciated the effort put in by the office since I know they didn't have to. Further, the quality of care was great and the prices for the crowns and lengthening were reasonable for the procedures undertaken (at least compared to prices in DC). The office also takes CareCredit, which can help with spreading out the cost of procedures without interest for a period of time.

I'm so surprised this place has no reviews . I was browsing to get a root canal I searched on google , and this dental office came up first . I have asked them if they do root canal treatment, the lady said yes , I have asked how long experience they have because my dentist told me I would have to go somewhere for my root canal treatment . The lady on the phone said oh long experience don't worry . So I went in , everyone was nice . I felt very comfortable , the dentist didn't mind giving me more shots I have asked him for more because I didn't want to feel a thing . My treatment ended up being a re treatment because my previous dentist did not complete my treatment all the way which made my tooth go worse . The dentist said he will try his best . I wish they take my insurance , I will come here because he seems experienced based on the questions I have asked . They take care credit . He even offered me antibiotics prescription to pick up at cvs .

Dr. Regina, Galina and Sharmaine (forgive if any names are spelled incorrectly) are all excellent in their given roles. I went in for a root canal and crown and was very impressed by the virtually pain free experience. I intend on using them for all of my dental care!

I had my first appointment yesterday and the experience was great! The dentist, the dental assistant, and the woman [with short hair] behind the front desk, were all so kind and so helpful! I wish I found this office before I went to so many other dentists! For once I am not nervous for my next appointment, I am actually looking forward to it!
—K R.
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Itskovich. I was unhappy with the veneers I had (old veneers were done by a different dentist) and Dr. Itskovich did an amazing job replacing them. My new veneers are natural looking and just beautiful. He exceeded my expectations. His services are fairly priced and his staff in the office is fantastic! Liliana, the receptionist, was incredibly helpful and kind!
—Elena Zharkova
I had nothing but great ... The best dentist I have ever been to!

Good service with minimum pain and discomfort

A best friend of mine referred me to Dr. Itskovich who has an office on Rockville Pike next to Lord & Taylor's. Idk if that's N Bethesda or Rockville, but it's the medical bldg on the White Flint side. Parking a snap. Back to my comments about what an excellent oral surgeon Dr Itskovitch truly is. Full disclosure, I have a dental phobia which I admitted. His welcoming manner was just what I needed. I was given several options by the doctor to treat my painful infection. I appreciated the respect I was given as I considered my next steps. My eventual treatment involved an extraction. Again I was provided a wide range of pain-reduction for the surgery; I felt reassured that I would not feel pain. Of course, the procedure was over in ridiculously short time. (Earbuds, music and sunglasses are my trick) Follow-up care has been great. I vouch for Dr Itskovitch completely.
—Nancy C.
It was excellent. Staff and doctors are great.
—Diane J.
I really dislike going to the dentist because it is usually painful . However , I found Dr. Itskovitch after visiting 3 other dentists and chose him! I had a root canal procedure and was petrified . Tooth was throbbing for a week from pain. As soon as I called him. They got me in the SAME day and for half the price of all the other places. The whole procedure was done in one day and I literally felt practically NO pain. I may also add he is kind and patient. I am going in a week for my crown. I like him a lot and will continue future procedures with him!

CHIPPED TEETH AND SLEEP APNEA DEVICE ADJUSTMENT My two front teeth chipped and my regular dentist was not able to fix them. I contacted Dmitiry Itskovitch DDS office and I was able to get an appt within a couple days! Tuesday evenings would be best due to my 8a-5p office. That Tuesday I was not able to fit it in, so I went in on my lunch hour today. What a REMARKABLE difference!!! the teeth were matched exactly to the bond used to correct the chipped teeth. This is a much better quality process than my regular dentist! His kind and courteous manner was very impressive. I also had him adjust my sleep apnea mouthpiece, which I purchased from the office 2 years ago. I would recommend RND Dental to anyone looking for a professional bed side manner dentist. Now I can smile like a Queen! and sleep like a baby. Thank you
—Nancy B.
Thank you! You are the best. I am so happy that you are my orthodontist. You are very lucky to have Mariluz and Liliana on your staff they are highly competent and culturally and linguistic appropriate for the Latino community of the Washington, DC Metro Area.
—Miguel Aguero
Dr. Itskovich is an excellent dentist who is very supportive of nervous patients like myself. He and his team create a welcoming atmosphere and he has a gentle touch. I have been going to him for several years and appreciate his skill and his ability to lessen my anxiety.

—Robert R.
It was a good visit but I expected he got the treatment I should follow but he did not have it yet.
—Margarita L.
He is the best and nicest dentist I've ever been to. Great!
—Arvin N.
I trust no other Dentist with the care of my teeth! I came to this office feeling ugly and depressed! I lost my confidence with a chipped tooth in the top front of my mouth. I hated to smile. I had MD Medicaid which IS NOT ACCEPTED HERE. I was told not to worry to apply for Care Credit. I was approved and was given a temporary cap. WHICH LASTED 4YEARS due to financial difficulties. ( SPEAKS OF THE PROFESSIONAL SKILLS OF THE DENTIST) I have come back 4 years later, the cap broke beyond repair and again I’m in tears! Dentist Regina Stryapko, said she can get a temporary top plate! This Dentist, Regina Stryapko, is AMAZING! The work she does is PRICELESS! She is more than a Dentist, she cares about YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! If you’re in need of a Personal, Professional, Caring and Compassionate Dentist to PROVIDE EXCELLENT SERVICE, LOOK NO LONGER , MAKE THE APPOINTMENT THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Vonnie
