“I am very impressed with Dr. Mischenko, with her professional skills and knowledge as well as with her great personality. She worked hard on my complicated tooth and the results are perfect. Thank you Anastasia!”

— Mark R.

“I recently saw Dr. Mischenko for a consultation on a suspected cracked tooth that is located under a bridge of 37 years.  I had previously seen several dentists and another endodontist for this problem, but none of them explained to me what was going on except for Dr. Mischenko. She is a very intelligent, knowledgeable, and insightful endodontist as well as down to earth and truly concerned with giving her patients the best treatment to resolve their issues. Her equipment is the most modern technology available and surpasses the other offices I visited that claimed they had state of the art equipment. She patiently explained in great detail each possible outcome of my situation, so that I could make the best decision on how to proceed. Her staff is friendly and went out of their way to assist me in completing my insurance paperwork. I highly recommend Dr. Mischenko if you are looking for a top-quality endodontist.”

“I had a really good experience here with my root canal. Although the tooth was excessively damaged (I think by the other dentist who did the Crown). All of my interactions with Dr. Mischenko were very professional and informative.”

—Kristina S.

“Referred by my dentist. Excellent. Dr. Mischenko was kind, patient and very competent with my consultation for an infected/split molar. I was referred to an excellent oral surgeon.”

—Cynthia O.

“Dr. Mischenko was such an incredible help to me by explaining very clearly my options and treatment. She was very informative, very professional, friendly and genuinely dedicated to providing the best possible dental care. Her staff is very helpful, clearly committed and dedicated to their patient care values. 

I am happy to come to their office because I am always well treated and I am confident any dental problem I might have will be taken care by Dr. Mischenko. I am extremely happy that I found their practice and look forward to a great and long relationship!”

—Lily R.

“Hands down the best root canal experience I've ever had! To start- Bethesda Chevy Chase Root canal specialists worked me in for an appointment the same day I called. I'm a big scaredy cat when it comes to dental work and usually require sedation but I was in so much pain from my abscessed tooth I decided to go ahead and have it worked on during my initial consultation. Dr. Mischenko and her team are INCREDIBLE! They talked me through every step of the process and made me feel so at ease the entire time. You can tell Dr. Mischenko genuinely cares about providing her patients a pleasant experience. She makes sure everything in her power is done so that you are comfortable during and after your procedure. The Office staff is also very accommodating. If you are in need of an Endodontic in Bethesda/Chevy Chase- DC area, I highly recommend Dr. Mischenko!”

—Michael S.

“I cannot say enough great things about Dr.Mischenko and her stuff!! Truly amazing! Her office so neat and organized! The entire process from start to end was completely painless. I highly recommend Dr. Anastasia Mischenko for any root canal needs. She is the best doctor!!!”

—Elena V.

“Let me preface this review by disclosing that I am a dentist. As a general dentist,  I've been referring patients to Dr. Mischenko for the past 5 years. He work is excellent and the patient's always have great feedback. So when I figured out that I needed a root canal (yes, even dentists have dental problems),  Dr. mischenko was the first person I called. I was very impressed with the care I received today.   The evaluation was very thorough and included a 3d xray which Dr.  Mischenko has on site. The injection was painless and the anesthesia was profound.   The entire procedure went smoothly and quickly. I was even able to doze off for a bit.”
