Since graduating from James Madison University in 1998, Dr. Nassir Barekzi started to work at a dental  assistant while attending dental school at The Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University.

From a young age, Dr. Barekzi was interested in Biology and pursued dentistry because he felt it incorporated artistry and medicine.

Be it with dental implants, crowns, veneers, bonding or Invisalign, Dr. Barekzi’s mission is to create superior cosmetic restorations that feel and look like natural teeth. The many enthusiastic patients who have had Dr. Barekzi improve their smiles with cosmetic dentistry are a primary source of our new patients.

Dr. Barekzi’s ambition is to show patients, through his work, that dentistry does not have to be painful or uncomfortable. Patients express nothing but gratitude for his gentle hands and excellent chair-side manner.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Barekzi spends his time with his wife and son and loves to travel.  He has run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain and hiked Machu Picchu in Peru


Our cosmetic dentists have extensive training and experience in a wide range of cosmetic and general dentistry treatments, from BriteSmile® teeth whitening and the placement of porcelain veneers, to Invisalign® clear braces and the placement and restoration of dental implants. They have the skill and artistic eye needed to combine several of these options into a total smile makeover to help their patients attain the smiles they truly desire.
