Dr. Ahanor is more than a dental expert— she also has a special knack for putting patients at ease. With a background in communication and language, her goal is to make every patient feel comfortable during their visit, and she treats each appointment like a visit with a friend. Dr. Ahanor believes in building long lasting relationships and taking the intimidation out of dentistry.
Dr. Ahanor received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry, then completed her residency training at Saint Elizabeths Hospital in D.C. After graduating, she completed additional training in advanced prosthodontics and implant surgery through a rigorous program with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, (AAID).
Dr. Ahanor is a member of the AAID, American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Virginia Dental Association and Northern Virginia Dental Society. She is constantly honing her dental skills through continuing education and staying up-to-date with the latest dental technologies and techniques.
Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Ahanor spending time with friends and family, and volunteering in the community. She works with several local charities that focus on enhancing the lives of disenfranchised families and she also volunteers internationally to improve oral health care awareness and decrease dental disease burden.
When you enter our office, you’ll be met with compassion and kindness. Our approachable team takes the stress out of dental visits and you can always trust that you will receive judgment-free, compassionate care at Aglow Dental Studio.
During your first visit, our team will get to know you and have a conversation with you about your dental health. We’ll actively listen to any concerns and answer your questions with honesty and transparency. Then, we’ll examine your mouth, professionally clean your teeth and gums, and Dr. Ahanor will address any issues, if necessary. If you don’t have any dental issues, we’ll simply schedule your next preventive appointment at the end of your cleaning. If Dr. Ahanor notices a cavity or other oral issue, we’ll address it with a customized treatment plan.
Every new patient at Aglow Dental Studio will be helping us make a positive impact on our community. Dr. Ahanor and the team have partnered with Kids R First, a local charity dedicated to the education and assistance of kids in grades K-12 from families with limited financial means. Kids R First provides school supplies and other assistance to ensure that these students receive the same opportunities as their peers. As a part of our "BE 7 Partnership", Dr. Ahanor will sponsor $7 for every 7 new patients at Aglow Dental Studio.
