Dr. Etessam is an exceptional dentist. I brought my kids to her after moving here from New York and the care you gave us was 10 times better than any dentist I have been to in New York. I actually look forward to come back again despite the past bad experiences with other dentists.
We have been seeing Dr. Etessam for 12 years. We found her after being disappointed with two other pediatric dentists. Her bedside manner can't be beat. She is gentle and has a wonderful sense of humor. She was terrific with our kids when they were young and continues to be terrific with them as teens.
It's always a pleasure to go see Dr. Etessam! The quality of care we receive from her is unparalleled. The kids didn't even mind the fluoride treatment since they got to pick which way they received it. We'll see you in six months!

From children as young as one-years-old to growing teenagers, Dr. Neda Etessam specializes in gentle, caring and effective dental care for your kids.

We treat every child uniquely, because each and every one is different—and our hygiene program reinforces healthy habits to ensure your children are always smiling with each passing year.
When you have a child with special needs, important dental care can often take a back seat to their pressing medical and developmental concerns. Thankfully, parents can trust in Dr. Etessam’s experience and kind, comfortable approach.

At McLean Children’s Dentistry, we make every effort to help your little ones feel calm and relaxed in our nurturing environment – but Dr. Etessam understands that this approach isn’t always enough. That’s why we also offer sedation dentistry for helping our young patients receive the dental care they need comfortably and safely. Nitrous oxide gas is available as a mild sedative that can be used in-office, while general anesthesia for severe cases is administered at Virginia Hospital Center.
Many parents surely remember the days of dentists using dark-colored, amalgam fillings to treat cavities – in fact, you might still have some! For your child’s precious smile, though, Dr. Etessam has chosen to provide metal-free fillings as a worthwhile alternative with many valuable benefits. In addition to looking much more natural, this restorative solution preserves more healthy tooth structure and is less sensitive to temperature changes, making them much more comfortable.
X-rays are a vital part of quality dental care, and our team is proud to have invested in the latest digital technology for capturing these important images of your child’s growing smile. Instead of relying on traditional film and tedious darkrooms, digital X-rays are captured and transferred to our computer system instantly for easy viewing; they can even be magnified and color-coded! Better yet, the amount of radiation our young patients are exposed to is significantly reduced, making the process much safer overall.
