“I am blessed to be able to serve the precious children in our community. I believe every child deserves to be treated in a manner that ensures their well-being and promotes positive memories for a lifetime. My goal is to create healthy dental habits in a warm and engaging environment that children carry with them as they grow into young adulthood.
What works for one child may not work for another, and I enjoy figuring out a personalized approach for each patient. The best part of working with children is taking my time to explain what I am doing in a fun but educational way, to help them feel at ease with procedures.”

A Leader in the Community
Dr. Mona believes in giving back to her community, and she is recognized for her community leadership and service. She participated in research to evaluate the dental health of children in rural communities in Maryland. Dr. Mona worked with the Health Department in western Maryland and volunteered with the American Dental Association’s Give Kids a Smile program.
Preventive care and education is one of Dr. Mona’s top priorities, and every February, for Children’s National Dental Health Month, Dr. Mona and her team dedicate their time and resources to visiting and teaching our community’s children. We actively seek opportunities to show our gratitude for our amazing community by supporting local programs and organizations important to our patients.
Outside the Office
Dr. Mona lives in Northern Virginia with her family. When not caring for her patients, she enjoys outdoor activities, including hiking and swimming. She loves spending time outdoors, savoring the peacefulness that the wild environment provides. Additionally, Dr. Mona likes to travel, but her favorite times are those spent relaxing and laughing with her family.
Dr. Mona is the best dentist we have found for our children. She has a wonderful manner—gentle and kind. She has never advocated for unnecessary work. She takes the time to explain the situation and ensure that I understand it. She then discusses the options and leaves the final decision to the parent. When Dr. Monajemy repaired my son's tooth, the color matched so closely that everyone almost immediately forgot that he had even had a chip. I will refer all my friends with children to Dr. Mona.
