Long before the doors of our company first opened in the heart of the Tysons area, adjacent to McLean and Vienna, the vision of VanSmileDesign has always been grounded in a deep passion for people. After nearly 30 years of care, we can reflect and see that what was true at the beginning still holds true today. Patients are the center of our practice.
Fueled by the friendships that we make every day, we continue our journey to build lifelong smiles in an atmosphere of compassion, trust and comfort. We move through our daily mission with forward-thinking philosophy, investing in the latest technology in modern dentistry and tirelessly sharpening our skills to give our patients a top-tier experience.
With native roots in the Northern Virginia area, Dr. Van grew up with a physician dad and dentist mom. Throughout the years, she observed them wearing multiple hats as parents, entrepreneurs, business owners, and passionate healthcare providers to many people in the community. Inspired by her parents’ work, Dr. Van knew she wanted to pursue her natural curiosity for science and art to transform smiles and impact lives. In 1992, she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics at George Mason University. She then went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the Medical College of Virginia in 1996.
Today, Dr. Van is championing patients of all ages on the path to optimal oral and systemic health. Whether she’s delivering her thoughtful artistry to craft beautiful smiles or collaborating with her talented team of dental pros, Dr. Van’s love for community is woven into every aspect of her practice. Her favorite part about being a dentist is seeing the long history of patients that come through her doors, hearing their stories, and cultivating relationships that have been formed throughout her years of care.
On her days and evenings outside of the office, Dr. Van is actively involved in multiple study clubs and continuing education courses. She treasures quality time spent with her husband, three active kids, and their Goldendoodle puppy. You may even run into her at her kids' diverse sporting events around town on the weekends!
