    Dr. Michael Pollowitz

    As a graduate of one of the top dental schools in the country, Georgetown University School of Dentistry, Dr. Pollowitz has become widely known in the DC metro area as one of the top providers of cosmetic and restorative dentistry via his and his wife’s dental practice, The Washington Center for Cosmetic Dentistry Family Dentistry. Dr. Pollowitz possesses extraordinary insight and clinical skills, particularly in the areas of reconstructive, cosmetic, and general dentistry that have gained him multiple awards throughout the county and set him apart from most dentists.

    Top-Rated Washington DC Dentist

    His knowledge, expertise, attention to detail, and his love and caring for his patients have given him the honor of being selected as one of Washington’s Top Dentists for the last 25 years. Checkbook Magazine has also awarded him as one of Washington’s Top-Rated Dentists as well the Consumers Research Council of America’s (CRCA) National Award as the Top-Rated Dentist for Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry.

    He is dedicated to providing high-quality dental care to patients with his signature compassionate, caring, and understanding style. He has been asked and given lectures on a variety of topics and has been featured on radio and TV shows for his expertise in cosmetic and general dentistry.

    The Best Dentist in DC Has a Passion for Knowledge

    “Dentistry is constantly evolving, only by continuing to seek more knowledge can I continue to provide the best and most advanced care for my patients,” says Dr. Pollowitz, who has completed over a 1,000 hours of continuing education in all phases of dentistry with a focus on restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry.

    This passion for learning is also shared by his entire team, which attends a multitude of continuing education programs to always stay at the forefront of the dental profession. Not only is an education in the field of dentistry paramount for the physician, but it needs to be shared and carried on by the support staff as well.

    He is not only active in organized dentistry and continuing education but is currently serving as an elected board member for three different prestigious organizations and will be serving as President for the DC Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity.

    Dr. Sharon Brown

    Dr. Sharon Brown is a native of West Harford, Connecticut, and graduated from Brandeis University and Georgetown University School of Dentistry. She completed her General Practice Residency at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT, then worked in private practice in North Branford, CT, before returning to Washington, DC in 1990.

    Dr. Brown’s primary focus is to make her patients feel as comfortable as possible in the dental environment and provide exceptional care with compassion and expertise. She is a member of the Greater Washington Academy of Women Dentists, Maimonides Dental Society, and Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity.

    Being a recent empty nester, Dr. Brown fills her time as an active board member of the Women of Washington Hebrew Congregation, Women of Reform Judaism, and Alpha Omega as well as with her weekly Mah Jongg game. She loves to travel and cook and, therefore, also has to spend a lot of time at the gym.

    Whenever possible, Dr. Brown loves to spend time with her grown children and of course, her husband, Dr. Pollowitz.

More than 1,400 5-Star Reviews

"My favorite dentist. Dr. Brown is hands down my favorite dentist. Highly skilled, fantastic bedside (chair side?) manner and a great team of skilled techs. Dr. Brown thoroughly explains proposed treatment, and keeps you informed the entire way. Her husband, Dr. Polowitz, is also great. Our whole family sees them."

"Dr. Brown and Pollowitz are highly skilled dentists, very talented artists, and have the best bedside or should I say "chair side" manner I have ever experienced. I trust them completely and have been seeing Dr. Brown and Pollowitz for almost 20 years now. When I lived out of town for two years, the dentist I saw there was amazed at the skill and perfection of the veneer and implant Dr Brown did and got the whole staff to come look at my mouth! I had an accident when I was a kid and have had lots of problems with my teeth ever since, and that includes many unpleasant experiences, but their kindness has given me a renewed respect and love for dentistry. It means a lot that Dr Brown will call me and find out if I am OK after a crown or something painful. She knows I am sensitive and takes time to take extra good care. Love them both."

Jenny L.

"As always my experience was top notch for a dental appointment. Dr Pollowitz explained the details of what he was going to do as he worked. It was an appointment to both replace a filling and to take care of the cavity on the outside of that filling. He proceeded slowly and there was never any feel of him rushing to get to the next patient. And Sylvia was very professional as always. Rate this office as a 5 star!"
