About Us

Potomac Family Dental originated in 2013, but was recently purchased by Dr. Khattab and Dr. Uthman. We are a young practice, but each of our dentists have more than 20 years of patient care experience. Having a new office has many benefits, including modern amenities and equipment.

When you come for your appointment, you can expect to find:

  • A pleasant, comfortable waiting area
  • Free WiFi
  • Freshly brewed coffee
  • Televisions in the exam rooms and reception area
  • Blankets and neck pillows for your comfort during treatment
  • Intraoral cameras used with all new patients, so you can see what the dentist sees during your exam

At Potomac Family Dental, our highly experienced team of dentists and staff are here to serve you. We want to be your family’s choice for a full service dental provider in Woodbridge.

Dr. Samer Khattab, DDS

Dr. K has been practicing dentistry since 1997. He has realized over the years that each of his patients not only has a unique smile but also a unique set of expectations and desires for their oral health. He is committed to caring for each patient as an individual. Whether his patient needs restorative treatment, implants, or cosmetic care, Dr. K listens and works with them to determine the right plan for their individual concerns.

An avid athlete, Dr. K can be found at the gym six days a week. His hobbies include swimming, golfing, and training for the occasional triathlon! He is fluent in Arabic as well as English.

Dr. Ahmed Uthman, DDS

Dr. Uthman also began practicing general dentistry in 1997, and went on to gain advanced training in orthodontics in 2006. He is dedicated to his patients, and strives to provide treatments that address the underlying issues that cause most cosmetic conditions. He has a great amount of compassion for his patients, and believes that having a long lasting doctor/patient relationship helps to increase the quality and effectiveness of care. Due to his commitment to a high standard of care and additional training, Dr. Uthman is also recognized as an Invisalign Preferred Provider.

Dr. Uthman spends much of his free time with his wife and daughters. He enjoys watching soccer matches, playing tennis, and has recently taken up golf as well. Dr. Uthman is trilingual, speaking Kurdish, Arabic, and English.
