Dr. Reeves is a second-generation dentist who began his dental career around age 12. Watching his father’s compassion, expertise and professionalism gave him inspiration. Post-graduation, he joined his father’s practice in Fairfax County, VA, where he was born and raised. After several years of experience with his family, he decided to branch out to serve the people of beautiful Loudoun County and create a space of his own.
Dr. Reeves received his DDS degree from the Medical College of Virginia (VCU School of Dentistry). He continues to pursue advanced post-doctoral training in individual dental specialties including dental implants, smile design, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), sleep apnea, and Invisalign® orthodontics.
