At Yousefi Washington Clinic, our mission is to deliver the highest levels of customer service in the medical field to our patients. Our philosophy focuses on comprehensive treatment to improve our patients’ overall health and enhance their quality of life. We aim to change our patients’ perception of dentistry from problem focused to preventative so they will appreciate the care they receive and entrust us with the care of their family and friends.
We strive to be to be a positive member of our community through promoting respect for all people and taking exceptional care of our employees.
Meet Doctor Raha Yousefi
Welcome to our practice! I'm Dr. Raha Yousefi, and I love getting to know our community, one patient at a time. I appreciate each of my patients for who they are and respect each person's opinions and ideas. I know that communication is key to my job, and I love talking and learning about my patients.
Education and Experience
I graduated with a bachelor's degree from University of Maryland. I then enrolled in dental school at Howard University. After graduation, I went on to specialize in Periodontics at the University of Pittsburgh where I also earned my Master’s in Public Health. Eventually I came back home to DC to continue my family’s practice, Yousefi Washington Clinic.
In addition to my formal schooling, I am enthusiastic about pursuing continuing education both on a local and a national level. I feel that it is important to keep current with evolving technology, techniques and materials to provide state-of-the-art treatment options for my patients.
As a member of the District of Columbia Dental Society, a local chapter of the American Dental Association (ADA), I routinely participate in meetings that highlight issues that directly affect our area. I am also a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the Greater Washington Academy of Women Dentistry and the Greater Washington Academy of Dental Studies. I have a strong public health background which has made me a well-rounded practitioner with expertise in a variety of dental disciplines.
Outside the Office
I have lived in the DC metro area my whole life and I love being here. My husband, Vince, and I stay busy chasing around our three boys! Typically, you’ll see us enjoying the city at parks, festivals and kid friendly restaurants.
Meet Vince Gongola
Thank you for being part of our practice! My name is Vince Gongola and I look forward to seeing you at our office. I am so grateful that you have chosen us as your oral health providers.
Education and Experience
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech. After graduation I worked as a consultant with Accenture in a variety of different industries and went on to get my Master’s in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia.
After extensive national and international consulting, I decided to leave the rigors of life on the road and apply the skills that I had accumulated to the business side of dentistry. I have gotten to learn so much over the years and continue to enjoy learning about dentistry and healthcare.
With an extensive retail consulting background, I have a passion for customer service and marrying that with new technologies. I believe it is paramount to continue improving to best serve you, our patients!
Although my environment has changed, I still enjoy keeping up on the latest trends in engineering as a member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IISE) and Society of Health Systems Engineers. I believe engineering is applicable in every industry and enjoy its application in dentistry.
Outside the Office
I am a native of Pittsburgh, PA but have grown to love the DC area. As Raha mentioned we have three boys that have seemingly unlimited energy. We are always running, jumping, climbing and crawling after each other!
