“Wanted to give a huge thank you to Dr. Margaret Valega.  Saturday morning in the middle of the power outage my daughter had a tooth issue.  We weren’t sure if it was an emergency or not.  Margaret invited us over to her home so she could examine her by flashlight.  Thankfully, the problem was related to a baby tooth waiting to come out, not a crisis.  Looking for a caring, patient oriented dental office? Look no further than Poolesville!”
