This doctor treated my crowded bottom teeth using 10 months of wire braces and a planned 5 or so months of Invisalign. After a short period on the Invisalign, I started getting severe neck pain, and was diagnosed with TMJ. I started seeing a TMJ physical therapist ad the advice of my physiatrist. My jaw is visibly misaligned. When I told Dr. Petrarca, he said my jaw is fine and it had nothing to do with the treatment. He was extremely defensive and angry and had no empathy about my situation. I am now out of invisalign and waiting for my non-active retainer. Dr. Petrarca is a backward thinking dentist who does not know how to handle difficult situations.

I wanted top front correction. he explained to me he needed to do the whole mouth, 2 years, $6K later, my front teeth stick out like horse teeth, the retainer didnt hold the crooked ones. Bottom line, I wish I had straightened only what I wanted or walked out. Too much focus on, I dont know what, but I didnt get what I wanted. he is really sensitive. When towards the end I gently suggested my teeth stick out, he got mad and danced around and yelled. his best days are over.

My dentist's (Dr. Mechek) wife was seeing Dr. Petrarca --which was good enough for me. Right from the start, Dr. Petrarca was a very charming, funny and well-knowledge orthodontist. He listened, examined, and assessed my mouth/teeth issues, consulted with other doctors and came up with a plan. He devised the best plan of action that would be most suited for me (my wellness, appearance and best smile). Inclusive, he made it affordable (with or without insurance). I just love his staff as my extended family. We have been together for years. I have recommended many to see Dr. Petrarca and will continue to do so--where ever his office is. In fact, my son is in his care now! I'm always excited and looked forward to any orthodonist appointment from Dr. Petrarca's office! And so will YOU! I have never written a review on anyone before. So I ake great pleasure in writing this one. Thank you for listening. Sincerely, C. Evans

Dr. Petrarca is an outstanding orthodontist, the best in the DC area. He is very experienced and thorough. His prices are very reasonable and the results of his work are outstanding. Everyone in my family has been treated and I recommend him to all my friends.

I would not say that getting braces done was painfree for me. My gums bled each time I visited. However, he has an excellent staff working for him (especially in the front desk) and is a very patient dentist. You went there terrified and you left there reassured. Most of the time, he took me as soon as I came in which is saying a lot compared to other dentists.

This is the WORST orthodontist EVER. The facility stinks and smells - it's a 30-year old place. The receptionist is outrageously RUDE!!! I'm very unhappy with his services. Will never, ever recommend to a friend.

i was reccomened to dr.p by my dentist. i am 18 years old and have been seeing dr.p since i was like 14. obviously ur wondering y ive had braces for almost 4 years but it had nothing to do with him haha. one of my teeth had an issue i had to care of with oral surgery, so anyways back to dr.p! his office is very small but all ther staff r extremly friendly! his magazine selection is amazing! they have like teen vouge seventeen elle cosmo, not all the crapppy old people mags from doc. ofc's. dr.p really knows what hes doing. my teeth r extremly straight and i love them. the only thing is that he is kindof quiet and rough, he will kinda just jerk ur head around and just stick his hands in ur mouth but hes never caused me pain. the female assistants r alot more gentle. i wouldnt reccomed him 4 very young children that r timid. he may b alittle to aggresive 4 them. but neways he quickly does his job with perfection and tells u when to come back next. ive never seen a dr. know his craft like petrarca. hes knows braces like the palm of his hand. if u want ur teeth to look amazing def. go to him!!!!! hes very proffesional and all the staff r sweet. u will love ur smile after his orthodontics!i def reccomend dr.p!!!
