Our Patients’ Reviews:

“I saw Dr. Jong. He is AMAZING! He was extremely friendly, competent, smart, and gentle! No pain whatsoever. I am so happy he is my endodontist.”

— M.G.

“Dr. Mischenko is a “gifted” doctor.  She is skilled compassionate, and a charming woman. Her approach is honest and direct. I was confident in her abilities from the very first visit.”

“I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lee to my family and friends. He was able to treat me over on a weekend and was SUPER attentive to my needs. He was very patient, precise, and called/texted with me multiple times afterwards to ask if I was doing OK. When I mentioned I had pain, he connected with me over the phone to understand my concerns and recommended a treatment plan. I returned to his office on the next week and he took a ton of time to make sure I was doing well.”

— Tailor S. (Healthgrades)

“Dr. Lee truly cares about his patients-- DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!”

“Dr. Jong is hands down the best that I have ever come across.

When I first went to see Dr. Jong it was because I was in need of 3 root canals on the same side of my mouth. I had just left my previous dentist and was in search of someone that would make me feel comfortable. Dr. Jong listened to all of my concerns and was extremely patient and attentive.

I ended up doing all of my root canals with him and I did not feel any pain at all during any of the procedures. He takes his time and is very thorough. He will continue to review and correct his work until he is completely satisfied so you can be sure that you have received the best treatment.

The office is extremely clean and very organized. He followed up with me after all of my procedures which made me feel like he really cares. If you are in the DMV area I would highly recommend going to him. I am 100% confident in his abilities.”

“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! “

— Maks R.

“Very nice and very professional. He made root canal experience as pleasant as it could be. Definitely willing to visit this place again because of Dr. Lee. Highly recommend him!”

— H.C. (Yelp)

“Dr.Lee once treated my husband when he was having severe pain in his teeth, but wasn't sure what was going on. He found out what the problem was right away with care and provided him with detailed advice and suggestions. I feel like Dr. Lee sincerely cares about his patients and knows what he is doing! I highly recommend him to everyone!”

— Mina S. (yelp)

“I saw Dr. Wonhee Alan Lee because I was in a lot of pain from a crown I had in my molar tooth. Dr. Lee saw me within 24 hours of calling the practice and proceeded to diagnose my symptoms. I was really impressed with the way he approached the situation-- he was more concerned for my current condition, and also recommended NOT to treat one of the teeth that my dentist said needed to be treated. He treated just one tooth and I recovered quickly and haven't had an issue since.” 

— Richard  (Healthgrades)

“Dr. Lee rushed into the clinic on a Saturday morning and opened the clinic JUST to treat me when I was in pain. He was very thoughtful and careful in his treatment, and made sure I felt comfortable throughout the entire procedure. I could tell Dr. Lee really cared about ensuring his patients were out of pain, he called and texted with me several times after my treatment to make sure I was doing well (Even on Sunday). I would recommend Dr. Lee to any of my friends and family members. It is rare to meet doctors that are truly dedicated to making their patients feel assured. He has their best interests at heart and seeing him once will make you realize that.” 

— Mimi K. (Care Dash)

“Dr. Mischenko and your office staff were extremely attentive and helpful. I was a “fit in” from another dentist’s office and I needed to leave soon for an important. appointment. They rushed me through and saw me quickly, all the time being friendly and professional. Was very happy with my experience at your office.”

“The office is clean, professional, and has the state-of-the-art equipments. The staff is wonderful and the attention to patient comfort was first rate. Dr. Jong is very friendly and attentive. I really appreciate that he explains what he is doing during my treatment. He constantly checks to make sure that I'm still comfortable throughout the procedure. The root canal went very well and I had minimal discomfort. I will recommend this office to anyone in need.”

— Hieu T.

“I was sent to Dr. George Jong as an emergency case. He saw me immediately and cleaned out a very bad infection but noted it was so deep that it would take more treatment before the root canal could be completed. He checked in with me several times and even opened up the office at night the next day when it appeared the antibiotics were not working and the infection was spreading. He is quick, efficient, and very gentle. His staff likewise. I had no pain in the treatment and could relax in the chair knowing I was in good hands. I only wish he was qualified to perform surgery on my shoulder, I'd use him immediately, I have that much confidence in him. And, he never lectured me about waiting so long to get the infection treated! He and his staff are keepers, I highly recommend them.”

— Phyllis A.

“Dr. Jong was amazing! He was extremely friendly, competent, and gentle. He explained everything before and during the procedure.

The office is so modern and state of the art. I watched a dvd while he was working under the microscope and before I knew it, the root canal was done. The best part was the whole procedure was completely painless!
I am so happy Dr. Jong is my endodontist.”

— Sarah N.

“It was great experience. He is very confident and knowledgeable. I didn't have any discomfort during and after my treatment. It was 2-3 years ago. Fast forward to now. My dentist's office took an X -ray last week. I didn't get comment because I didn't see my dentist. But I saw my X-ray of my root canal. It was just the same as if it was just done. Nothing weird showing at all. Hope you will have the same perfect experience with him as I had if you need a root canal.”

— Ying L.

“I managed to crack my tooth while enjoying a particularly hard bagel and ignored it. Which ended up with me having to get a root canal on my #15 and my favorite dentist in the whole wide world (Dr. Bonnie Lin) had recommended Dr. Jong. They both were in the same building so why not? I wouldn't need to drive out at all. Dr. Jong is extremely amicable and great to get along with. He fully explained what needed to be done and prescribed antibiotics to quell my infection that had began to start. The procedure itself was relatively pain free and they have films (Planet Earth, it's eight hours long ;)))) ) you can watch whilst getting the root canal. I have terrible gag reflex from both anxiety and things touching the back of my throat. However, with a film to watch and a rubber mat thing placed in the mouth to prevent things touching the throat, it helped reduce it significantly.  His dental assistant was also super nice and I liked her a lot! The cost was also average for the area and makes sense for the quality of care I have received. Overall if I somehow messed up again, I would most certainly come back o Dr. Jong for another root canal.”

“An Exceptional & Professional Experience

Please read this in its entirety and hopefully it will save you some time researching Dr. Jong and Bethesda-Chevy Chase Root Canal Specialists. You won't go wrong choosing this endodontist.

I was on out of town business travel this week in DC when an excruciating toothache flared up in a tooth I had been previously advised might need a root canal. Being out of town, my primary dentist was unable to refer me to anyone in the area. I was extremely concerned about choosing the "wrong" endodontist. I was desperate, and in my extreme discomfort I researched scores of local endodontist practices, and decided on Dr. George Jong of Bethesda-Chevy Chase Root Canal Specialists. It was a chance but one I had to take.

After two days & nights of suffering, I called first thing in the morning and explained my circumstances. They rearranged scheduling to accommodate me with an appointment within several hours. 

As soon as I walked in, I was relieved to see a first rate, spotlessly clean, professional office and was greeted by especially helpful staff.  I was shown to the exam area which had all state of the art equipment, including video TV on the ceiling for the enjoyment of patients.

I was introduced to Dr. Jong who I cannot say enough about. He is one genuinely caring professional with a most calming demeanor who patiently explained everything to me before taking X-rays which were immediately shown to me on a big color screen. 

We went forward with the root canal procedure and although I had only had one performed prior to this, it was as pleasant and painless as I could imagine it could be. Dr. Jong kept updating me throughout the process as he knew I wanted to be. I have to say the video on the ceiling was especially helpful in helping the time pass for me.

Upon completion, Dr. Jong again explained everything to me. In addition to his high level of professionalism, he is an exceptionally nice person. When I left, he provided me with his cell phone # and asked that I please call if I experienced any complications. (I haven't met another doctor who did that).

That evening, thankful for the relief he had provided, I was out to dinner when I received the following text message: "Hi Shane, Dr. Jong here. Just checking to make sure you are doing ok."

That was the icing on the cake for me.

I highly recommend Dr. Jong and his staff if you need professional, caring and pleasant orthodontic care. He takes great pride in his work and it shows. I guess the only down side for me is that I will likely never see him again.

Thank you again Dr. Jong and staff. 

PS: When I returned to the Boston area and had the permanent crown completed by my (very particular) primary dentist, he made it a point to comment on what an exceptional done had been done on the root canal.”

—Shane B.

“Best root canal ever. 

And I should know, as this was my third. (Sigh. Why is my mouth a war zone?) First one: not too bad, done by a small Persian man who kept saying, "The root is dead!", but probably worse because I didn't know what was coming. Second one: hell on earth, worst two hours of my life, done by an endodontist who clearly did not understand the first thing about his job and/or how to interact nicely with humans. Third one: was it even a root canal? Or was it a tiny pinch of Novocaine and then an astonishing wait for pain that never actually appeared? (And I'm not just talking about physical pain -- how is it even possible that my bill was so low?) Dr. Jong, I know you admonished me for not flossing enough. But, honestly, I'm almost tempted to ignore you just so I can come back. Almost.”

— Laura J.

“I am an RN and I have a mouth full of root canals by various endodontists over the course of my 50 years. Most recently I had a horrible experience somewhere else. Enter Dr. Jong. He is a thoughtful, clinically outstanding endodontist who is patient-centered. He involved me in decision-making regarding the retreatment of my tooth. Once we decided the best course together, he treated me right there and then - painlessly! My tooth feels so much better, and I am grateful for his skill and compassion. I recommend him without reservation.”

— Daine P.

“Yes, a 5 star review for a root canal.  What else is there to do in Maryland on a nice summer day? :-)  

I was told I might need a root canal months ago - but I definitely didn't want to rush in unnecessarily if it wasn't absolutely needed - and luckily I didn't have the pain that causes most others to need to find someone immediately. I went to 4 other places prior to meeting Dr. Jong and as soon as I met him I felt at ease and knew I was in the right place.  He spent a lot of time with me listening to my history, performed tests and did an x-ray and determined that it definitely had been 'curtains' for my problem tooth with the abscess above it.  When the icy swab placed on surrounding teeth caused immediate sensitivity but that one was basking happily in the cold it couldn't feel, along with the review of the x-ray and my other symptoms - we decided together it was time to schedule the root canal.  Dr. Jong explained all aspects of the upcoming procedure and spent the time to answer any questions I had, putting me completely at ease. 

It ended up taking 2 appointments due to my hidden 4th canal, which they discovered at the first appointment using their amazing cone-beam CT to confirm its existence - but both appointments were pain and problem free.  Dr. Jong was with me every step of the way, explaining things and making sure I was comfortable.  I was very glad the office has the latest technology and even above that - for all of their endodontic procedures, and I truly appreciated how thorough and detailed Dr. Jong was, as I wanted the highest chance possible to not need any sort of revision.  

Dr. Jong accepts a lot of different insurance plans as well - including some of the ones from dental plans dot com - so the lower cost to me was an added bonus.  

I can't say I hope I have a need for additional root canals - but if I do, I will definitely return to see Dr. Jong. I wish they offered other dental services in their office because it was a nice soothing environment and I would go there for every dental need, but it is solely endodontics.  It is their specialty...and it shows.”

“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.”

— Lesley Y.

“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.”

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!”

“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.”

“Dr. Alan Wonhee Lee is an amazing dentist and compassionate human being! I spoke to Melissa Casey, the kind and efficient receptionist, on Christmas Eve. I asked her if I could speak to Dr. Lee about ongoing pain following a root canal done by another dentist. Dr. Lee took 10 minutes of his time to talk to me even though I had never been his patient. He explained that the root canal probably caused trauma to a nerve trunk, which is why I am suffering nearly a month after the root canal, and referred me to an Orofacial doctor who can help. Compassion from a wonderful doctor on Christmas Eve- this is what Christmas is supposed to be all about.”
