Â Â Â Â If you've ever had a marginal experience with a medical professional, you're probably well aware that not all physicians and their respective office experiences are identical across the board.Â As doctors are human too, often a compatible personality, along with a high level of expertise, can sometimes make all the difference in the world toÂ the patient.Â Here are some interesting facts to note that you may have been unaware of. Why choose Doc Siegel? Â Â Â Â Victor Siegel has been practicing Dentistry for over 30 years locally in the Rockville area.Â He received his Dental degree from renowned Georgetown University and was both a student and well-respected, beloved instructor there as well.Â Many local dentists have been and continue to be affected by Dr. Siegel's dedicated guidance and positive influence and attitude.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Recently he was featured on Georgetown's own Alumni webpage.Â A direct link is posted at the end of this article for your convenience. Â Â Â Â Along with being one of the utmost experts in his field, he is also one of the more technological savvy professionals in his craft, combining an amazingly gentle and informative nature with the use of latest and most effective dental equipment available.Â Both patients and staff alike will attest to his profuse desire to keep on hand, the most technological advanced tools possible.Â Â Â Â Â His patients range from individuals who were referred by friends and family members who are patients, to families of two to three generations apart.Â It's routinely noted that people who come to see Dr. Siegel for the first time, remain with him.Â Along the same line as his patients' wondrous longevity rate, his staff retention is second to none.Â Dr. Siegel employs only the most knowledgeable and affable people for his small, intimate staff.Â On the average, most of his team has been with him for nine years or more.Â But please don't solely take our word, read on to see what others have said about him and his practice. In Their Own Words Â Â Â Â â€˜I moved to Maryland in May of 2008 and was specificallyÂ Â Â Â Â Â looking for a position in an innovative office that offered CAD-CAMÂ restorations (same day porcelain crowns).Â I knew that finding a practice with the latest technology would dictate the kind of doctorÂ thatÂ worked there.Â Â Â Â Â Â Dr. Siegel embodied all the characteristics that IÂ deemedÂ important not only as an assistant, but also as a patient.Â He is a kind, gentle professional that cares about each and everyÂ individual that walks through the door. Â Â Â Â HeÂ sits with his patients and takes the timeÂ to listenÂ and understand their concernsÂ and desiresÂ when it comes to dentistry.Â His approach is sincere and the attention to detail in his work is amongst the best I have ever seen.Â I have been in the dental field for 10 years and I am honored and proud to be working along side such a fantastic doctor.'

Â Â Â Â "... The truth is, I feel that you are friends, so I always feel welcome... Jilna is very gentle...Â Debbie is a delight and always helpful.Â I feel well taken care of in your hands, Dr. Siegel.Â Thanks."
- G. Pyryt
Â Â Â Â "I have been a patient of Dr. Siegel's for over 27 years and can't say enough about the practice.Â First off, I love the folks at the office... they are competent, professional AND so nice.Â The practice keeps up with the latest technology --which impresses me as an IT person. Â Â Â Â Also, Vic straightened my teeth with the Invisalign process, and it truly has changed me life. Â I smile a lot more, which in turn makes people respond to me in a more positive way.Â Even my husband of 28 years has noticed that I'm more outgoing and that he likes the change.Â Â Â Â Â Going through the Invisalign process was not easy for me, but Dr. Siegel was always there for me with support and solutions to the issues that came up during my treatment."
