Dr. Cotca is amazing on so many levels and there were a lot of issues to address. My jaw and bite feel the best in at least 8 years. She was referred by the best sleep specialist in DC area when I mentioned clenching, grinding, TMD, headaches, and other issues along with the departure of my regular dentist and specialist dentist. So I knew I was getting a GREAT doctor referral. Dr. Cotca is superbly specialized and was able to ID and treat multiple intertwined (complicated) issues immediately and with ease. She provides a level of detail and knowledge in her treatment that defines her as a truly amazing provider. I can't say enough professional recommendations about her, and especially her special Cotca device (appliance) - based on a famous UMich device - upgraded, tweaked and personalized. That device (more complicated and much better than a bite guard and handcrafted by her rather than a lab) is giving me immediate relief. It is retraining my muscles to a natural bite rather than being a guard. It was expensive for me, however I am with the best I've ever found. For my complications and needs, it was absolutely worth it to go out of network and pay for the extra care, extra attention, superior technology, and a much deeper knowledge base. I am seeing great results and have the piece of mind knowing I am in the best of the best of hands and brains. She is the one that teaches the CEU's to the other dentists, and she is a mix of clinical and operational. I have never known or met her before this referral - this is a completely unbiased review based on my own amazing results and experience. I know I am in the right place and only wish I had found her when I explored bite guards 8 years ago.

I just had oral cancer screening with Dr.Cotca. It was complimentary and the price is usually $95. She gave me great advice about future care of my mouth. The exam was very comprehensive and informative. She is great!

Meeting Dr.Cotca has been a wonderful start to my journey to optimal dental health. Her bed side manner is impeccable and she takes her time both evaluating your case and explaining the best course of action. Her analysis takes a holistic approach and addresses root causes of issues which is esstential for long-term success. As a person with some anxiety for dental procedures, Dr.Cotca put me at ease and her work was gentle. Her coordinated approach gives me confidence that I will achieve optimal dental health under her direction.

Now that I have the mouth guard appliance I find that I have no headaches less neck and shoulder tension. My mouth is able to open at its full capacity . I've been told that it's at 100% which means further dental treatments should be easier. I wish I had Dr. Cotca sooner . Better late than never. Thank you.

I usually dread seeing dentists when I have to get major dental work. This was not the case with Dr. Cotca who was very gentle when doing my dental fillings. I was very pleased with her attention to detail and her attentiveness to preventative maintenance before she completes any major work. Being such a knowledgeable doctor, she also takes the time to educate the patient on everything she’s doing as well as the rationale for her recommendations, which is great because an educated patient can make better decisions. I highly recommend Dr. Cotca. I don’t think I have ever met a Dentist who is so specialized and passionate about her field. I highly recommend Dr. Cotca.
