Dr. Melvin Washington opened the doors of Relief Dental with only one goal: to offer patients the most comfortable and competent dental care they’ve ever experienced. Relief Dental boasts a combination of creative solutions to solve its patients’ dental needs along with thoughtful straight talk. These qualities ensure that patients know they are treated fairly, a fitting contrast given its location squarely between Decatur and Tucker with their respective characteristics.
Dr. Washington is no longer a hidden gem of the local dental community as his team
has transformed the lives of patients wanting to return to their true selves and regain their confidence. In turn, his patients have spread the word; the secret is officially out! Dr. Washington cuts no corners when it comes to the quality of his work or the experience he provides to each of his patients.
After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Florida A&M University, Dr. Washington continued to the University of Louisville, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree and completed extensive hospital-based training at the University of Louisville Hospital. Dr. Washington aims to be a leader in both clinical excellence as well as customer service following the philosophies of Spear Education, the Dawson Academy, and the Disney Institute.
