I feel honored to have the privilege to serve my community as a dentist. I strive to go above-and-beyond for every patient: listening and learning about people’s lives broadens my world and creates trust between us. This bond, in turn, allows me to deliver the personalized, lasting dental care patients deserve.

~ Dr. Saria Ahmad

Seeing the positive impact her mother, Dr. Farah Ahmad, made on her patients’ lives made Dr. Saria Ahmad want to do the same. She wanted to help people lead healthier and happier lives, with healthy smiles that improved their self-confidence.

In 2015, Dr. Ahmad graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry with her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) and entered into practice. Whether taking people out of pain and empowering them to take charge of their dental health or improving a smile, she is dedicated to doing what is right for the individual.

In Practice

Understanding each patient’s needs – their dental and physical health, activities, and interests – is important to Dr. Ahmad. The more she knows about how the patient lives, and what is important to them, the better she can identify treatments that are right for the individual. As she designs the treatment plan, she focuses on an approach that is effective, efficient, and minimally-invasive.

Before starting any treatment, Dr. Ahmad walks her patient through the options. She discusses diagnostic findings, different treatments, and why she recommends a specific approach. Throughout the process she encourages her patient to ask questions and raise any concerns they have. It is critical, Dr. Ahmad believes, that each patient has all the information needed to make knowledgeable decisions about the health of their smile. She wants her patients to be confident in their choices – as confident as they are in their smile.

Continuing Education

A life-long learner, Dr. Ahmad pursues continuing professional education throughout the year. She regularly takes courses covering the latest dental research, innovative techniques, new technologies, and emerging trends. This ensures she is providing excellent dental care, using the most up-to-date information, for the best experience and predictable, beautiful results.

Beyond the Practice

A Northern Virginia native, Dr. Ahmad is happy to be raising her family in a community she knows and loves. She and her husband have two children and much of her free time is dedicated to being with them. Among her many pastimes, Dr. Ahmad enjoys cooking and drawing; she is also an avid reader.
