    Nadia, Dental Assistant

    If you ask me why I like dentistry, I will tell you that it's because I love when we can do a great job, and the patients feel that they are important to us.

    Before joining Washington Dental Care, Nadia lived in Missouri for four years where she worked as a dental assistant and enjoyed outdoor sports like kayaking, fishing, and hiking. One thing she especially likes is spending time with her husband and her dog. In the future, Nadia wants to continue learning more about dentistry and live close to the beach.

Our Happy Patients

"I've had two cleanings and a cavity filled at this dentist now and they're the best I've ever been to. Everyone that works there is great, and Peter has awesome bedside manner. He explains everything he's doing, and takes his time to ensure that you know everything about your dental health."

"Phenomenal Dental Care. Dr Hammes is not your average Dentist. He goes above and beyond to deliver excellent care that’s high quality. He cares about your experience. I always feel very comfortable and at ease with Dr Hammes."

Samantha C.

"If I could give this office 10 stars, I would! Dr. Cecchini and Dr. Hammes are both so knowledgeable and truly a talented team. I felt completely at ease under Dr. Cecchini’s care. The office has the latest technology, and the rest of the staff along with Sue, the hygienist, are all top notch. I will definitely be back!"
