Dr. Ansari’s Path to Lowes Island Dentistry
Dr. Ansari bought Lowes Island Dentistry from Dr. Hahn in 2012 and continued to work alongside him until 2013. Dr. Hahn was a cosmetic dentist with a great reputation for esthetic excellence. He had his crowns done by another dentist but wasn’t happy with the result. During the transition, Dr. Ansari redid all his work and created the smile of his dreams. Working with Dr. Hahn established the trust factor and challenge of working on a colleague. As a result, he not only entrusted his practice and patients to Dr. Ansari, but also his own dental health and esthetics. Since then, Dr. Ansari has enhanced the smiles of many fellow dentists, notable community members and beauty queens in the Loudoun Area. Come into the office and check out her wall of fame. Her goal is to enhance your smile to a level of perfection, that if she were to have dinner with you, she herself could not detect fake looking teeth. The teeth have to fit your face, body, personality and look natural and beautiful. Dr. Ansari is truly passionate about the dentistry she does and you can see and feel it. She believes you can only treat what you see and you see only what you know. In addition to her own skill level, Dr. Ansari believes in investing in each team member.

My Life Outside of the Practice
Dr Ansari spends many days out of the year training, learning and growing her team with world renowned trainers and consultants to carry out the vision of the highest level of care in a warm, friendly and energetic environment. She had met her husband, a child psychiatrist, while in dental school, and together they joined the US Air Force in 2001 and provided their professional services to service members and their families during Operation Freedom for six years. They were stationed at Keesler Air Force base in Mississippi and Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Washington, DC.
