Top-rated dentists and hygienists
Our dentists aren’t paid a commission on procedures
Most dentists are paid a commission on procedures. This can lead to more procedures than you need. We eliminate this by paying our dentists a great salary with a bonus that rewards them for patient satisfaction.
We only hire 5% of clinical candidates
When we hire dentists and hygienists, we aren’t looking for good, or great. We’re looking for amazing.
Our care is science-based
Our proprietary training program, TendU, keeps our clinical team up to date on all the latest research. It also facilitates collaboration, so you get the benefit of many top minds working together.

How experienced are your 14th & U Studio dentists?

They’re led by our Clinical Director, Dr. Marc Schlenoff, a former Program Director at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in Manhattan.
How will I know which dentist or hygienist I’ll be seeing?
Before your visit, we’ll give you a call to say hi and answer any questions you may have. We’ll also tell you a bit about the dentist you’re going to see. If there’s someone in particular you’re hoping to be seen by, feel free to call us at (202)539-2051.
What if I want to reschedule with a different dentist or hygienist than the one I've been paired with?
How do I reschedule or cancel my appointment?
Call us at (888) 818-3686. Just make sure to do so more than 24 hours before your appointment time. If you cancel or reschedule less than 24 hours in advance, we’ll have to charge you a $50 fee. If you don’t make it at all, we’ll have to charge you a $75 fee. This is because we reserved that time specifically for you, and our appointments are in high demand.
