New Technology With a Gentle Touch
We utilize leading-edge dental technology as part of our commitment to providing an exceptional level of dentistry. These tools allow us to detect issues earlier, diagnose, and treat more dental issues faster while keeping your comfort priority one at all times. You can trust you’re getting only the latest dental technology and treatments when you visit our office.
Our digital X-rays emit less radiation, take images faster without any need for processing, and allow us to optimize the images so we can provide a more precise diagnosis.Learn More
A picture explains what words never can, especially when it comes to your teeth. An intra-oral camera can take pictures with such detail, it can show cracks and stress marks in a tooth that can’t be seen with the naked eye.Learn More
Cone Beam / 3D X-ray
The complex structures of your jaw can be difficult to decipher on an x-ray. But advanced 3D imaging brings the unprecedented ability to see your mouth and jaw with as much detail as a CT scan, but right in our office.Learn More
This dentist's office is such a gem! I love that Dr. K can do most procedures himself so I usually don't have to be referred anywhere else and the hygienist is amazing and thorough. Thank you for taking care of me!
Would recommend Dr. Kuhns to anyone looking for a new dental home. Comfortable and professional, kind and affordable. Go see him today!
I am so very happy with my visits to Seneca ProSmile. Doctor Kuhns and his staff are very kind, friendly and professional! We drive an hour to get there and it is well worth the trip!
I had a tooth extracted yesterday by the magical hands of Dr kuhns. I am amazed that I have NO pain after the extraction. I have needed almost no pain meds.
I am so thankful to finally have that tooth out.
This place is the best dentistry you can find in DC metro area!
The staff at the office are professional efficient and friendly. It’s always a pleasure to visit which is unusual to say about a dentist's office. Highly recommend.
The best dental care I have ever experienced! Professional, courteous, and Burge always makes me feel like family… would highly recommend to anyone!!! Dr. Kuhns was very nice and informative. The hygienist was also kind and made me feel very comfortable yet she was very professional.
I really recommend Seneca ProSmile. The staff is very nice. Dr. Kuhns always explains everything about the procedure/ work being done and what to expect once you leave the doctors office. This place is very clean and neat.
Everyone is super polite, careful, knowledgeable, and professional. I've been going there for a few years now and have nothing but praises to offer. I'd you want a pain free, worry-free dental experience - this is the place to go! Thank you guys for all you do!
I had a great experience with Dr. Kuhns and his assistant Janet. They work well together and are extremely professional and efficient. I also had a cleaning with Malia, the hygienist, and she was extremely gentle. She even massaged my jaw and allowed me breaks, as my jaw doesn’t allow me to hold it open very long without pain. I would say Malia and Janet deserve a raise!! ??
I have been coming to this location for over 13 years when it was Dr. Nina Aks. I have received amazing service and care from everyone. Now I am seeing a new Dentist and his team I have so far received excellent service. My recent visit was with Dr. Taylor and her assistant LaToya. They were both very friendly and attentive. Of course, Berget, from the front desk is always super helpful. I’m glad she’s still there. There was a new addition to the room I was in, it was a TV with wonderful scenery scrolling through that made me feel like I was on vacation. It was very relaxing. Thank You all.
Dr. Kuhns and his staff were very professional and made me feel very comfortable during my entire visit. They explained everything to me in a way that was easy to understand and I feel like they truly cared about me and weren’t just trying to get my money. Switching doctors, let alone dentists, is never an easy thing to do but they made me feel right at home. I highly recommend Dr. Kuhns for any dental needs. I will be sure to bring my family and kids here.
Came in for regular cleaning and was greeted by a very friendly front desk staff. My information was processed quickly and efficiently by all members of the front desk. I was then escorted to the room of my cleaning where I was greeted with a smile by Malia. I’ve been getting cleanings my whole life but Malia was one of the most cordial and proficient hygienists I’ve ever had. During my cleaning, she made sure I was comfortable and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Lastly, I met with the Dentist who was happy to tell me I had no cavities! 10/10 recommend this office to anyone and everyone. All Smiles Over Here!
