If I could give 10 stars I would. We’ve been coming to EJL since 2010, they are the first dentist for my oldest son who just turned 16 and now all my five children see doctor Lewis. We love Dr. Lewis she is the absolute best. She truly cares for your children, when it comes to small children she makes them get excited to come see the dentist even as young as two. The staff is fantastic they are incredibly friendly and kind. The place is extremely clean it feels like walking in to a spa. I highly recommend their service.
I brought my kids here for years before I realized I could come as an adult – lol. The staff are great, and Matelis is a gem. Highly recommended.
Dr Lewis is the best! So knowledgeable, so warm, and always remembers details about my family. We couldn’t ask for a better dentist!
I am always happy with the care my son, Jack, receives at EJL Dental. Everyone is so accepting of the patients--not to mention the parents! Jack looks forward to his trips to the dentist, and it's because you are all so good to him. Many thanks, Mary Beth Busby

Dr. Lewis is amazing! She engages our son in every part of the exam; she is so patient and kind. As our son has several environmental sensitivities, she has sought our input about what we believed he could tolerate and how to approach and interact with him. She has her staff on board with the exam plan, so that all members know what our son needs to have a successful appointment. Over time she has moved to a full exam and cleaning even though I doubted that we would ever get the whirring dentist’s tooth brush anywhere our son. As a result, our son happily and willingly walks into the dentist office. This review only provides for 5 stars but Dr. Lewis and her team earn 11 in our eyes.
Dr. Lewis just the best of the best!
We’ve taken our kids to EJL Dental for almost 13 years - Dr. Ensor is a wonderful, patient dentist. Now our kids see Dr. Johnson for their orthodontia; again, he is thorough, kind, fun and the kids look forward to seeing him. I truly wish I’d had a dentist like Dr Ensor when I was a kid.
Dr. Johnson and Dr. Lewis are amazing! They have such a great rapport with the kids and parents alike! They have always made my daughter feel at ease when in their care.
I really appreciate Dr.Webber and the staff. Always honest and respectful .
My son says "EJL Dental has special care above and beyond other dentists and orthodontists."They helped tell you what to expect, gave instructions on what to do, and made it (almost) fun." As a parent, I cannot rave enough about this practice, on both the dental and orthodontic sides. They specialize in kids/adults with stress/anxiety around dental work, and it's a radically different and wonderful experience. Thank you so much, EJL Team!

We’ve been with EJL for 10 years and the staff is AMAZING! My son finished wearing his braces today and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr Johnson is a first rate orthodontist! He’s not only an expert in his field but also very friendly and puts the children at ease. Thank you EJL!
Thank you Dr. Weber for always giving me an honest opinion of my dental health and suggesting things to maintain & improve. I'll be back in April for a bit of maintenance
2 kids down, 1 to go! Dr Johnson and his staff are wonderful. I wouldn't go anywhere else for orthodontia. I happily recommend them to everyone who asks "what orthodontist do you use?" And of course we have gotten great results! Beautiful smiles!!
Dr. Sheyda and everyone at EJL Dental were absolutely AMAZING. Not only did they squeeze us in to repair a cracked tooth within hours of our call (and we weren't even existing patients), Dr. Sheyda was so kind, patient and joyful. She took the time to really listen to my 8-year-old son, and also took the time to explain to him all the tools she was going to use so he felt totally prepared and at ease. What could have been a traumatic trip was instead full of laughter and high 5's. So grateful!
As a Travelling or Temporary Dental Hygienist who is registered to practice around the entire 3 states of DMV, I have had the pleasure and the unfortunately the displeasure of working in the good, the bad and the ugly of the Dental world. From practices that do not care about their staff or their patients to the really good ones at taking care of both. Drs. EJL Practice doesn't lie in the good, the bad or the ugly, it lies in the BEST of them. Especially for the little ones and the most vulnerable or scared. Dr Ensor and her entire team, starting with Dr. Sheyda(Whom I worked under) and Assistant Dr. JO (former Dentist and orthodontist from Philippines) there's no enough space to write good stuff about Jo, The office managers Cynthia and Ashley, her Front Desk and her assistants Flora, Karin, Charlese Laura and ortho team lead by Dr. Johnson and Sam, Eisley and Joana were excellent. The hygienist I met , Nancy and Jan were excellent. They all made me feel welcome and had a smooth explanation of how everything works. How a Dental Office Treats a visiting clinician speaks volumes about how they treat their patients. The Doctors at the practice work from what I saw is beyond professional, they are highly qualified and did a great job of taking care of their staff and patients. If I personally, a professional, needed dental work, they would be my go to professionals. IN fact I Will be taking my family to this practice soon. I really do recommend her and the team to any dental hygienist looking to temp or permanent dental home if there's an opening or even patients in need of A + plus Dental care. Do I need to mention the ambience that so serene? I will be back to temp in this clean, serene and professional office. Morris Mugo, RDH from Safari N Smiles!
Excellent service all around as always! Dr. Ensor is magical with my special needs son. So patient, kind, and calming. We appreciate how much time she spend to explain treatment plans and issues.
My son - 5 yo - sees Dr. Ensor; Besides her expertise, she is so kind, lovely and welcoming. I was so impressed with the practice, that I was delighted to learn that they also see adults. For my appointment I saw Dr. Weber. She and her team did an excellent job explaining my options and worked with insurance to let me know right away what my plan would cover.
Excellent staff and professionals at EJL. Have used their dentistry practice for over 10 years and recently wrapped up our orthodontic services for the past 8 months. Excellent all around. Highly recommend.
My son, Matthew is a patient Dr Louis he has autism in special-needs you’ve been going for years. The practice is fantastic and Dr Lewis is an absolute gem. She is incredible with children and young adults with special needs my son actually look forward to going
Dr. Matelis was super helpful this morning, quickly diagnosing and analyzing my issue and providing a creative solution that is at least temporary and may actually turn out to be a long-term fix. Either way, I'm glad she proposed this initial option.
Starting from the front desk, they have excellent reception and hospitality. The doctors do what they can for the patient. Thank you very much. I have been with them for 13 years for my children's dental care. It is wonderful . Dr. Jones and Dr. Sheyda, they are the best
Brian Haven had a good appointment today He has always done well with. you all! Thank you for your patience.
Always on time! Very professional
Sandra De Lima
Dr Ensor is so caring, patient and professional in working with our special needs daughter. My daughter is not cooperative and very challenging during dental visits but Dr Ensor provides best caring and complete service as possible . We are very lucky to have doctor like Dr zEndor!
I was looking for a dentist for myself and my mom, and we were paired with the amazing Dr. Matelis. What a jewel! She is such a wonderful dentist! She explains things thoroughly and she has the most wonderful bedside manner/personality. She instantly puts you at ease. She has done an outstanding job for the both of us, and because of that we will definitely keep up on our yearly appointments/visits. It's nice to know that EJL is the same place that I brought my daughter to as a young child when Dr. Morganstein was there. It's a wonderful place and you always receive quality service!

Everyone was very friendly and personable. I liked how thorough both Dr. Ensor and Dr. Johnson was with my child.
Dr Weber was wonderful! I was very nervous and she made me feel very comfortable. If I could give more stars I would!
Finished an Adult Invisalign treatment with EJL. Dr. Johnson and team are top-notch: professional, courteous, and always attentive to detail. The office is very clean and modern, and they are using all of the latest technology. They are also just really nice people, and you can tell they genuinely care about how you feel and how your treatment is going the whole time. I appreciate everything they did for me and recommend them for sure.
We brought our three year old here today for his first appointment, with a ton of hesitation as we know how shy he is around strangers. From the very beginning the staff, hygienist and dentist approached our son in such a welcoming and warm way. Dean loved it so much he didn’t want to leave. He asked when we were coming back! They appear very experienced with making kids and their parents feel comfortable and relaxed. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Dr. Sheyda & Team are wonderfully skilled attentive providers
EJL Dental is an amazing group of dentist and Orthodontist! Dr Weber is patient, kind and explains the entire dental procedure thoroughly! Highly recommend this group!
Kelly and Jeff Gerrish
My son Mekhi had an Awesome Cleaning Checkup today. He was asked if any issues with his teeth and always gets great cleaning recommendations. Dr. Ensor is like Family to us! Both of my children have Awesome Dental Care Cleanings and their care has been with this office since they were little kids. We Love Dr. Ensor’s Dental Care Office!❤️🦷 The Hughes Family😍
Highly recommend Dr. Johnson as an orthodontist. He has friendly, competent staff and is patient, knowledgeable and hands-on with his clients.
As usual Dr. Matellis was friendly and professional. Karla did great job cleaning my teeth also.
Dr. Johnson and his staff are great!
Friendly, accurate and very helpful advice and explanation of procedures. Excellent at putting child patients at ease.
Dr. Sheyda was amazing and made my daughter's first dentist appointment such a great experience. We are so happy with the care we received and look forward to our next appointment.
As usual, a pleasant and very professional experience always. I am a patient of Dr. Weber’s and had an emergency today. I saw Dr. Matelis. She was wonderful! My kids and I were patients of Dr. Morgenstein and dr. Tilken in the 90s and early 2000s. It is wonderful to see that this office kept the tradition of quality care and friendly attention to patients!
Clean, friendly, knowledgeable, patient, comforting. I have been with this dental practice for years with both my kids, they are great! Give them a try.🤗
My first visit was today. I am very pleased with EJL Dental, Dr Martels and the hygienist who cleaned my teeth. Check in was quick, my cleaning was thorough, and Dr Martels check up really made me feel like I am good hands. I am so glad our friend recommended EJL.
Took my client who is special need for cleaning. The doctors were very friendly and professional.

Dr Sheyda Maghsoudi is amazing pediatric dentist. My 8 year old is always happy to get her teeth cleaned and examined by Dr Sheyda. She, her hygienists and assistants have great bedside manner. They really take their time to get to know your children and they do a great job explaining dental procedures in “kid friendly” terms! Always a great visit from the moment we walk in to the moment we walk out!
Super nice & very friendly people here! They always make sure to give you the best experience possible.
Every time we visit EJL Dental we have a pleasant experience. All the hygienist, techs and doctors are extremely friendly and easy to talk to and make my nervous kids feel comfortable. I highly recommend this practice.
Rachel Shiffrin Feldman
I have been seeing Dr. Weber since the start of the pandemic. I have been impressed by her and her staff, particularly her dental hygienist, Nancy. I have sensitive teeth which required injections of novacaine in the past whenever I had my teeth cleaned. To their credit, Nancy and Dr. Weber were able to clean my teeth gently enough that I did not need any intervention other than some topical numbing solution. I am grateful to them for that and very pleased with the results they obtained.
Dr. Lewis was amazing with my son. She removed his tooth so easily just as she had with my older son. She is a great clinician with an excellent bedside manner.
I love every single dentist here. They are all super nice, patient, and helpful. Special thanks to Dr. Johnson who's been the orthodontist of my two kids since they were very young. He always clearly explains every single step he will take and the reason and possibilities of all outcomes. EJL Dental is the best place for the whole family!
Great job per usual. Short wait time and friendly staff. My kids enjoy seeing Dr. Lewis and leave happy.
Dr. Ensor and Joe are nothing short of amazing!!! My son needed a filling and they did an absolutely wonderful job making sure he was comfortable. 5 stars and highly recommend this practice! Dr. Johnson is absolutely wonderful as well, always makes sure the kids are comfortable and have a full understanding of what to expect! Also 5 stars and highly recommended!!!!
Dr. Mateo is an excellent Dentist. I have been very impressed by her and the whole staff at the office. Everyone has been kind, curtious, and patient. They have also gone above and beyond to take every precaution during the pandemic. Highly recommend! 👍
There was little wait time, the waiting room is child-friendly, and the nurse and doctor were very kind and welcoming. Dr. Ensor is excellent working with children, and she knows just what to say to calm a nervous toddler.
Dr. Ensor and EJL are amazing and patient with my son with my autism and sensory issues. We are so thankful for their skilled techniques and positive attitude that make the experience as smooth and pleasant as possible for him (and us!) Thank you!!
We can't thank Dr. Johnson enough for fixing our son's teeth. For us, it was a complicated case that took almost 3 years but Dr. Johnson was excellent all the way through the process. With each appointment or milestone, he would provide a detailed patient-status and openly answer any questions we had. I think his approach to patient care comes with a strong dose of empathy & genuine care. I give Dr. Johnson a 5 star recommendation. If you go with him, you are in trusted hands.
I was seen by Dr. Matelis for a chipped tooth and a cleaning. She did a wonderful job of assessing how to take care of the problem and did a thorough cleaning. She was easy to communicate with and very caring.
Dr. Lewis is an excellent professional, we highly recommend her. My kids love her. We couldn’t ask for better service.
I've had quite the journey with having orthodontic work for over two years and throughout the process Dr. Johnson and his team have always been right by my side.
Our experience with Dr Johnson and the entire team was excellent. Highly professional; the team was easy to work with and appropriate safety protocols for COVID-19 were put in place to allow for continuing care during the past years. Results were excellent! We highly recommend Dr Johnson and EJL Dental.
Dr Matelis is truly amazing. I’m disabled and have very bad anxiety surrounding really any medical care, including dental care. She has stuck with me through it all and has always done everything in her power to make dentist visits as low stress as possible. I still panic and stress about visits, but knowing that she is as understanding and patient and kind as she is makes it a little easier. I also never feel any judgement or hurry when I’m struggling which I’m incredibly thankful for. I don’t think I’ll ever like going to a doctor, but she is the only doctor I have consistently felt comfortable with over multiple years
Treatment by Dr. Weber was caring and personalized. She made me feel comfortable.
Best of Bethesda almost every year for a reason. I will stay with this dentist 🦷 from 1 to 100. Thank you, EJL! 💯
I just want to give a shout and share that Dr. Johnson is a thoughtful doctor and an expert in his field. I am a single mom by choice with twins. He's been so respectful and has not compromised care for my daughters. He is thorough, honest, and caring. He is resourceful and committed to serving patients and families with a diverse set of needs.
Drs. Johnson, Ensor, and Lewis are absolutely fantastic. Our four kids and I have been patients in the practice since they became EJL. Initially we were 4 kids age 8 and under including 3 year old twins. Their office set-up is incredibly family-friendly, much more-so than other pediatric dental offices where we have gone. Dr. Ensor has accommodated all 4 kids at once until my oldest went off to college. Dr. Ensor is clearly extremely experienced in dentistry and working with kids, including kids with special needs. She is so calm and reassuring with those of my kids who used to be scared to open their mouths at the dentist’s office. She offers personalized care, working with the personalities to get everything done that they need, even when that may mean delay until the kids have the capacity to do a procedure without being scared. She has a non-interventional approach when procedures are optional. The rare times when Dr. Ensor was not available we scheduled with Dr. Lewis who was also fantastic in her approach: educating parents and kids, with a wonderful beside manor. The dental assistants who work with Dr. Ensor and Lewis are magical with kids, imparting a wonderful mix of humor and serious direction to kids about their dental hygiene. The reception staff is invariably professional, polite, and helpful. Today our fourth child who has had braces under Dr. Johnson’s care finally had his braces off! I cannot sing enough praises for Dr. Johnson and his team. First and foremost, our kids now all have absolutely beautiful smiles with perfectly arranged teeth. Dr. Johnson has a fun and calm demeanor, connects easily with both kids and parents, and clearly communicates goals and expectations. Dr. Johnson’s staff have a wonderful and motivating manor with teens. My oldest had so much fun laughing with his staff when she had braces, she would ask to drive her younger siblings to the office so she could go back and say “hi.” (pre-pandemic…). Related to the pandemic, the practice has been thoughtful and clean, strictly maintaining and following CDC protocols. Despite being extremely cautious myself during the pandemic, I have felt very safe going there and bringing the kids. My adult dentist is Dr. Weber who also works with EJL. She is also absolutely wonderful. She is gentle, caring, understanding and cheerful. The adult dental assistants are also gentle and informative, non-judgmentally helping me improve my own home dental hygiene. Even though the practice is out of network for us, I cannot imagine going anywhere else.
Dr. Johnson and his staff are so professional, personable, and gentle. Come along on the journey of getting that perfect smile!! It is worth it!
Dr. Johnson is the most humble, most patient, most caring boss I ever knew. He is amazing and no one compares to him.
Mae Mae Optimistic
Very happy with their great service. My kids are patients there both for dental and orthodontia. By far the best dental and orthodontia office. Everybody is very nice and easy to work with. They take the time to explain to my kids each procedure that they are doing. I highly recommend them
Amazing staff and amazing dental/ortho practice! Highly recommend!
Dr Weber helped my special needs teenager through emergency consultations after hours, two root canals and several fillings over many visits. She calmly talked him through the process, and he did well despite being highly anxious in nature.
We have been extremely impressed with the careful attention EJL Dental has paid to safety for patients and staff during this extraordinary time. From temperature checks to limiting the number of people waiting inside for children to finish appointments, to air filtering and ventilation, we felt we were in good hands at EJL Dental. We began orthodontic treatment for our child before the pandemic began and he has had regular check-ups since then. We were amazed at the improvement made after the braces were removed recently. Straightened teeth, happy smile, healthy patient. We feel much gratitude to EJL Dental and Dr. Johnson for being on the front lines for months and for their commitment and dedication to their patients during challenging times. We highly recommend Dr. Johnson and his staff.
I had been very hesitant to visit the dentist during the COVID crisis and an “emergency” warranted a most panicked visit. I discovered that EJL Dentist had taken incredible safety measures which included air purifiers, distancing, health surveys and temperature checks to name a few. I was so relieved and felt so safe that I scheduled a cleaning, too. I’ve come to expect and maybe take for granted that EJL always cares about their patients, but seeing the steps EJL Dental has taken to keep their patients so safe during the extraordinary circumstances we all find ourselves has renewed my appreciation for this truly unique practice.
Dr. Ensor, Dr. Johnson, and Dr. Weber are the most caring, kind, dedicated providers I have ever worked with. I am so grateful that this team is taking care of my family.
Amy B. Lewin
Always feel very safe, comfortable And professionally taken care of by Dr Metellis and her staff! Inspite of all the precautions with COVID, visiting the office is a smooth and stress free experience!
EJL Dental has always provided my family excellent care. We have used them for years. Our primary go-to dentist is Dr. Jessica Weber. Very personable and knowledgeable. Our grandchildren have used the Pediatric side. Their visit with Dr. Lauren Lewis and staff was was very welcoming and staff took care to make the boys comfortable. Highly recommend this practice. All there are excellent. Betty Behnke
EJL has top notch dentists and a wonderfully caring staff. They are my dental family and I am so thankful to be in such capable hands. Very clean , take temperature, address the problem , follow up to make sure all went well. My husband and I have been seeing Dr Jessica Weber for years and enjoy her humor and her dental expertise. All of the doctors at EJL deliver quality care. Nothing but the BEST experiences❤️
My daughter feels at home at visit. Thank you.
Very clean office with a wonderful staff. I will certainly be coming back to this office for years to come.
I love this practice!!! Dr. Ensor is the best dentist and her staff are so amazing and friendly.
Reigna Celeste (SuperCurlyGurl)
We have been using EJL Dental for more than 5 years and are totally pleased. We feel very comfortable with the competence of the dentists and assistants, as well as the administrative staff. The latter are always flexible in making and adjusting appointments.
Charles and Renate beers
Very professional and well run office. Doctor was thorough and made us feel comfortable
Going to EJL is always a great experience! Everyone is nice, accommodating, and professional. It’s more like going to see friends as opposed to just the dentist.
I love EJL! The staff is always personable and professional. No long waits, extremely informative. I need to know exactly whats going on and why with my care and the doctors took time to make sure all of my questions were answered. I feel comfortable recommending them to everyone!!!
EJL Dental really impressed me with their extra attention to CoVID-19 protocols. I felt very safe taking my 3 children in for cleanings, and 1 needed a couple cavities filled. They are ages 3, 5 and 8 and all Love Dr. Lewis and her staff! They actually love going to the dentist!
EJL Dental is my home away from home dental office! They have a fantastic, caring, and very professional staff. I know I’m not alone in dreading going to the dentist, but this office takes the time to listen to your concerns and makes you feel confident and comfortable!
Dr. Matelis is great and I would highly recommend her!
Terrific experience with this whole practice - dental and orthodontics - for all three of our children. Highly recommend!
Excellent dental practice! I recently switched practices r/t poor customer service I received at my previous dental office in Chevy Chase. I now travel further to EJL Dental but it's well worth it for the professionalism and kindness displayed by the staff. For starters, I received a warm welcome and efficient service from the front desk upon my initial visit. Additionally, Dr Jessica Weber did an exceptional job with my dental filling and has a down to earth personality to back it up. I will be returning in the future for my dental needs at EJL. Thank you!
One shop for all - have your teeth cleaned while your kid/s are with their dentist or orthodontist - all under one roof. EJL has such good systems in place, don't have to wait long times ever, and every employee truly cares about patients. Happy, welcoming and warm environment.
Our kids have been going to EJL since they were born! Even though we moved, we still go there! They really are the BEST!! Thank you for everything you do and for always accommodating our kids!
EJL Dental dentists, orthodontists, hygienists and staff are caring, professional and wonderful!
Wife and I love EJL for our kids, and our kids love it too. The right people and environment for a great dental visit every time.
Dr. Matelis went above and beyond with treating my daughter this week. She has a darken tooth that Dr. Matelis was able to help us with treating. At the same time she talked directly to my teenage daughter and helped boost her confidence about the tooth (front tooth everyone can see) and how she will make sure it looks like the other ones when treatment is done. I appreciate her taking the time and realizing my daughter was concerned about how it looked and Dr. Matelis reassured her that her smile is beautiful! Dr. Matelis treats my whole family and we have had wonderful experience with her and the whole office!!! The front desk staff is amazing and incredibly kind. They are responsive and always work with you on your schedule and insurance. We have been with Dr. Matelis for over 10 years and I highly recommend her and EJL Dental for your whole family.
EJL Dental has a great team of dentists and staff. Highly recommended!
Very efficient and dependable.
I highly recommend EJL Dental!
5 stars for a great team!
This team was great.
I have been going to EJL for the past 11 years and I would recommend it highly to anyone. They are personable and professional. The office is very clean and cozy, which makes it great for adults and kids! I recently moved too far away to see them regularly, and only hope I can find a new dentist half as good as them!
I have been a patient at EJL Dental for a very long time and I have to tell you that the one star review is completely wrong, rude and inappropriate and must be in error. Everyone from the front desk to the doctors are the very best I’ve ever been to. The office is very well taken care of and clean and it’s nothing but smiles from everyone. Thank you EJL for providing a 5 star service to me and my family.
Everyone was super nice and it was an overall easy experience
I highly recommend Dr Matelis - she is thorough and kind. Just had two fillings done by her with zero pain. Our kids see Dr Ensor and Dr Johnson, both of whom are exceptional! Front desk and office staff are great to work with - its easy to schedule appointments, get answers to insurance questions and the office is modern and clean.
I got a cavity filled at their office. Not only was it quick and easy I felt no pain and the shot was done very well. I highly recommend doctor Matelis and the person assisting her. Both of them were very good at what they do and made my recent visit very pleasant.
We have brought our two daughters to Drs. Ensor, Johnson, and Lewis from the very beginning. (They have always seen Dr. Lewis, who is outstanding.) Our girls, now 5 and 7, absolutely adore Dr. Lewis and the rest of the staff. I can’t say enough good things about this practice; the facility is gorgeous, the friendly staff genuinely loves children, and the reminder emails and texts sent from the front office are extremely helpful. In fact, my husband and I like the practice so much, we recently decided to become patients ourselves! (We used to go to a different practice just for adults, but now we, too, go to EJL) It’s very convenient for our entire family to go to one practice! In short, we could not be happier. Best dentists we’ve ever been to!
- Emily T.
We can’t say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Ensor is a consummate professional– warm and caring with the kids, and clear and reassuring with the parents. Dr. Johnson is a hit with all the kids (and parents!), makes them feel comfortable, and explains things clearly. The staff are equally helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this practice. Have been going there for 10 years. After a tour of the facility we were escorted to the kids area where the kids had a blast playing with the toys. It was great that they allowed brother and sister to interact and support each other through the cleaning. As my son has a lot of anxiety and difficult behavior they were super patient and amazingly good with him!
- Arlen G
We rave about our orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. Three members of our family are currently his patients (mom and 2 kids) and we could not be happier. His personal attention to each patient (including calling on evenings and weekends after installing a new device just to make sure everything is ok) shows his genuine concern for his patients. Everyone there, from the office staff, to Cara (the billing wiz), to the techs — everyone is delightful to deal with. Not to mention that Dr. Johnson’s work is amazing. Highly recommend!
