For the past 48 years, I have had the honor of being your family dentist. In fact, for some, I have cared for several generations of the family. I have never taken your trust in me for granted. That is why, as I am announcing my retirement effective November 27, 2019, I have taken great care in finding a fellow dentist who can meet your future dental needs with the same level of clinical and personal integrity you have come to expect.

Dr. Rodney A. Alejandro is an award-winning dentist whom I trust personally and professionally. He is my ideal choice to continue your care, as we share the same philosophy in patient care and treatment planning. In fact, I have asked Dr. Alejandro to cover for me when I have been away.

Your hygienist, Jacquie Lengyel, is pleased to join Dr. Alejandro’s staff. I know how much you value her unique skills and kind care. Patients are already scheduling in Dr. Alejandro’s nearby Burke office.

Dr. Alejandro is a native son of Virginia. Born in Portsmouth, he is a graduate of The College of William and Mary and the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. He proudly served in the United States Navy Dental Corp until he entered private practice. He has been practicing dentistry for over 27 years, of which 21 years have been right here in Burke.

Year over year, Dr. Alejandro has been named Top Dentist in Washingtonian, Northern Virginia, and Virginia Living magazines.

He devotes significant personal time to learning best practices and new treatments through monthly study groups and advanced, post-graduate courses. Dr. Alejandro also gives back by donating his time to important outreach programs like the ADA “Give Kids a Smile” event. Since 2003, 5.5 million underserved children have received free dental services.

Dr. Alejandro’s office will maintain your hard copy and digital dental records, including all x-rays. My former office number (703-323-5500) will also transfer to his office for your convenience.

Thank you for the years of friendship and confidence. I will certainly miss you all.
