Virginia Dental Center would like to welcome a new doctor to our team, Dr. Amy Hassan!

Dr. Hassan's path to dentistry began as an undergraduate student at Stony Brook University in Long Island, NY. While there she received a degree in Sociology. Upon graduating, she moved on to earn her doctor of dental surgery degree from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Soon after, Dr. Hassan completed two years of General Practice Residency at NYU Winthrop Hospital. Her time at NYU exposed her to a series of complex cases that allowed her to enhance her skill set and provide comprehensive oral care. After working tirelessly for her first year of residency, she was awarded the position of Chief Resident her second year. It was here Dr. Hassan continued to refine her skills in specialty fields such as endodontics, oral surgery, pediatrics and implant dentistry.

Dr. Hassan's mission will always be to take care of both the smile and the person behind it.

[07/10/19]   We are open and seeing patients today! We expect we will be able to overpower the sound of the few fans we have running in the office with positive energy, and our go get 'em attitude. LET'S CLEAN SOME TEETH!

[07/09/19]   Due to the unbelievable amount of rainfall we've experienced, Virginia Dental Center will be closed tomorrow. We plan to open as normal on Wednesday. We will keep you updated. We hope everyone was able to stay dry and safe.


It gives us the utmost pleasure to introduce and announce that a new dentist has joined the Virginia Dental Center Team!

We have selected Dr. Abby Halpern to help us continue to provide the excellent dental care you have come to know. We assure you that Dr. Halpern is just as caring and passionate as the rest of our team. We know you will appreciate her expertise, personality, and chairside manner.

Dr. Halpern received her Master of Science in Microbiology and Immunology at Georgetown University, and Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) from the Dental College of Georgia (formerly MCG) where she served as Speaker of the House for the American Student Dental Association, presiding over a governing body of 24,000 dental students where she received honors for her leadership in organized dentistry by the American Dental Association, American Student Dental Association, and International College of Dentists.

As always, we are happy to care for you, your friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers. Virginia Dental Center continues to accept new patients, so please share your smile, and VDC, with those around you.

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."

Very proud of our Furkat Sadykov's mission trip to Jamaica with Zion Care Intl.! With the love and support of many of his teammates at Virginia Dental Center, Elite Dental Center: Dr. Scott Dudley and Dr. Alyssa Hartman and Dental Care Alliance, Furkat was able to provide dental services and change the lives of many individuals.


"Dr. April Kern’s philosophy is that all dentistry is Cosmetic Dentistry. Her goal is to enhance the value of each patient’s life by providing excellence in dental care.”
Dr. Kern graduated with honors from the prestigious Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Economics in only three years. Prior to dentistry she worked as a strategic management consultant in London, England.
Dr. Kern received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A member of the Honors Prosthodontic Program, she was the solo recipient of the Student Award of Merit from The American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, the invitation-only membership organization for the most accomplished professionals in the field of esthetic dentistry.
Dr. Kern elected to pursue further training by completing an intensive General Practice Residency at the level 1 trauma center at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There she gained advanced, multidisciplinary clinical experience with an emphasis on dental implantology. She was able to hone her clinical judgment and diagnostic ability within each discipline, including endodontics, prosthodontics, oral surgery, periodontics, orthodontics, and pedodontics. Additionally, as a hospital-based program, her residency provided extensive experience in treating a wide variety of patients with complex medical histories as well as dental emergencies including acute odontogenic infections and oral maxillofacial trauma.
Dr. Kern worked in private practice in Atlanta, New Jersey, and New York for 5 years prior to joining the team at Virginia Dental Center in February of 2015. By offering solutions to restore or replace teeth in a compassionate environment, Dr. Kern treats patients honestly with modern and long-lasting dentistry. Dr. Kern is passionate about involving patients in treatment planning, educating patients about treatment options, and encourages them to take charge of their oral health. Dr. Kern prides herself in being very thorough in her work, from initial diagnosis to rendering treatment, as she believes every patient deserves to be treated with the utmost respect and compassion, as you would treat your family. Dr. Kern’s extensive training has made her a welcome addition to Virginia Dental Center, where she is well-equipped to handle all your dental treatment needs.
Committed to staying abreast of cutting-edge changes in the field of dental medicine and dental technology, she actively participates in continuing education and learning through continuing education. Dr. Kern stays current on the newest techniques and principles in dentistry with hundreds of hours of clinical and didactic continuing education (CE) courses. Dr. Kern is the co-leader of the Elite Dental Group Spear Study Club, and attends hands-on lectures and seminars at the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona. Dr. Kern is Invisalign intermediate certified, and she is an Invisalign Preferred Provider at Virginia Dental Center. Dr. Kern is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the Northern Virginia Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, the Academy of Laser Dentistry, the American Academy of Women Dentists, and a charter member of the Nova Dentist Academy Study Club.
Her emphasis on patient comfort, as well as keeping up-to-date with the latest advancements in dentistry, enables her to provide her patients with the best quality of care in the field. Dr. Kern has a wide range of experience in different areas of dentistry, from cosmetic and restorative dentistry to surgical treatments. Dr. Kern’s approach to your treatment starts with patiently listening to you. Then, after a complete and thorough examination, she reviews and discusses the diagnosis and treatment options with you.
When Dr. Kern is not practicing her passion of dentistry she enjoys yoga, running, Pure Barre, and SoulCycle. She is a member of Mothers of North Arlington, and loves spending time with her daughter Annabelle.


This past weekend Dr. Goldstein traveled up to the Zimmer Biomet Institute in Parsippany, NJ for the "Immediate and Definitive Restorations of the edentulous arch hands-on workshop" with Drs. Gouldin & Carlos and Nishan Halim, DMD. Or in other words, a hands-on workshop fabricating immediate hybrid #implant-retained #Dentures.

An immediate hybrid denture offers patients with an end-stage dentition the ability to quickly regain masticatory function, esthetics, and quality of life.
