Stop by to say “hi”
Here at Alluring Smiles, we understand that finding the right dental team to fit your needs can be difficult. We want to alleviate the pressures of that first introduction by taking the “fear of the dentist” out of the equation. Therefore, we have an open door policy.
Give us a call to let us know when you can stop by and get a free tour of our office, as well to say hello to Dr. Maria Hayes.
Dr. Maria Hayes
Dr. Maria Hayes is a graduate of the Ohio State University College of Dentistry, one of the best in the country. She has been a dentist for over two decades and remains current on new dental technology through continuing education courses since receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Dr. Hayes first graduated from OSU in 1993 as a dental hygienist. It didn’t take long for her to realize that cleaning people’s teeth wasn’t enough of a challenge for her, bringing her back to school to become a dentist. When she graduated with a DDS degree, she purchased and ran her first dental office in Ashland, Ohio, before moving to the DC Metro area in 1997. Dr. Hayes worked as a dental associate for several years before founding Alluring Smiles, LLC. While working in other dental practices, she realized that she could not practice dentistry as she wanted to—offering the best care possible in a relaxed and inviting office with caring staff. Her high ethical standards drive how she treats her patients and are the cornerstone of Alluring Smiles, LLC.
Dr. Hayes lives in the Kentlands and has two sons. When she is not working, she indulges in her passions: cooking, decorating and practicing yoga at Yoga Bliss. She loves to travel and read. If you see Dr. Hayes walking in the Kentlands with her dog, Daisy, be sure to say “hello”!
