Meet Our Charlottesville Dentists
There are dentists, and then there are ADC dentists.
Dr. Anita Neel is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh where she earned her BS in chemistry. She then attended the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Dental Medicine and earned her Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree in 2002.
Upon graduation, Dr. Neel was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy. She graduated from the General Practice Residency Program at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Dr. Neel practiced in Bridgewater, Virginia for two years before joining Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville in 2007 as a partner in the practice.
She took over full ownership of Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville in 2015. Dr. Neel has been trained in the most advanced technology utilizing CEREC® and CAD/CAM technology. She is an Invisalign® Certified Provider. Dr. Neel is a member of the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
She is happily married to her husband, Steve, and has three children; Helena, Bobby, and Sammy.
Dr. Heba Al Tamimi started her dental career in Jordan where she graduated from the University of Jordan in 2012. She went on to complete a one-year internship in Jordan. Dr. Al Tamimi then practiced family dentistry in both Jordan and Iraq and in 2014, she began teaching dentistry in Baghdad, Iraq. In 2015, Dr. Al Tamimi got married and moved to the United States to join her husband who was already in the United States working on his master’s degree in engineering.
Missing her love of dentistry and taking care of her patients, she wanted to continue practicing dentistry in Virginia. Although she was already a licensed dentist in Jordan and Iraq, she needed to graduate from a dental school in the United States and become board certified. In 2016, Dr. Al Tamimi volunteered at Parkside Family Dentistry in Bridgewater, VA. In May 2020, she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, American Student Dental Association (ASDA), and VCU Alumni.
Dr. Al Tamimi is excited to join the ADC family! Her passion is to provide world class dentistry with a commitment to relieve patients of their physical pain and anxiety in seeking treatment, as well as, helping them prosper with a wonderful smile! She lives in Charlottesville with her husband, Muataz, and their beautiful baby girl, Hana. When she is not practicing dentistry, you’ll find her cooking, baking, or hiking. Dr. Al Tamimi loves living in Charlottesville because of its wonderful community of people and its beautiful mountains and trails.
Dr. Neel and the entire staff at Aesthetic Dentistry are excited for you to meet Dr. Al Tamimi. Her warm smile, tender heart, and clinical skills makes Dr. Al Tamimi a wonderful addition to our dental family.
As usual, I did not have to wait. I was treated with professionalism and courtesy. Dr. Neel and staff members are always polite. I have recommended Aesthetic Dentistry to several of my friends.
