Meet The Team

Dr. Sara Elashaal


Dr. Sara Elashaal was born in Egypt and grew up in Northern VA. From a young age, she knew helping people through healthcare is her passion. What drew her to dentistry is the combination of art and science. Determined to become the first dentist in her family, she attended college at George Mason University, graduating with Honors in Biology. From there, she went on to Boston University School of Dental Medicine, graduating with Magna Cum Laude Honors. As a National Health Service Corps scholar, she spent the following five years working with the underserved populations in Washington D.C.

Dr. Elashaal is actively involved in organized dentistry and is passionate about continuing education. She spends hundreds of hours each year taking courses to keep up with the current trends in Dentistry and extend the knowledge and training to her patients. She has training in various areas of General Dentistry, including oral surgery, implants, cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatments, and more. Dr. Elashaal is committed to providing high quality dental care in a relaxing, serene, environment.

Outside the office, Dr. Elashaal enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and volunteering with non-profit organizations. These days, you may find her hanging out by the pool, or playing with her backyard chicken! Dr. Elashaal lives happily with her husband and their three boys!

Jaquay joined the practice in 2006. She works in conjunction with Dr. Scott and the assistants to schedule patient appointments and provide estimates for dental treatment plans. Jaquay also works with patients in the back as needed. Her favorite part of her job is getting to know patients and their families.

Jaquay has completed trainings in intense implant surgery as well as in phlebotomy. She has also traveled with Dr. Scott to the Dominican Republic, New York and Scottsdale, Arizona  for continuing education courses in Implant Services, Advanced Surgical Techniques, Cerec Same-Day Crowns, and Invisalign.

A native of Northern Virginia, Jaquay lives in Woodbridge with her family. She loves organizing family gatherings and spoiling her grandson.


Miguel joined us in the summer of 2021 as a dental assistant, bringing 9 years of experience and lots of jokes to the practice. As a child, he wanted to be a professional soccer player, but he stumbled into dentistry after too many soccer injuries. His favorite part of his job is living vicariously through his patients’ stories and adventures. His goal is to make patients feel comfortable during their appointments, while also educating them on the importance of oral health care.

Miguel is married (his wife is also in the dental field!) and has two dogs. When he’s not spending time with his family, he enjoys being in nature, and takes every opportunity to go camping, hiking, and off-roading in his Jeep.
