The entire team at Williams & Patterson Family Dentistry welcomes you and thanks you for spending time to get to know us. Here is some information on Dr. Dayne Patterson.
Dayne Patterson, DDS is originally from Colorado, but he has spent most of his life in Northern Virginia. He completed his undergraduate studies at Virginia Tech, earning his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He then attended dental school at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry, where he was awarded his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.
Next, Dr. Patterson completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco to expand his knowledge and gain further experience. Before settling in the Alexandria area, Dr. Patterson briefly practiced dentistry in San Diego.
Dr. Patterson believes in using his training and experience to inform and counsel his patients but leaving final decisions to them. Respecting his patients’ wishes and opinions is part of his care philosophy. He also understands that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions in dentistry, and every patient needs answers that fit their unique goals, budget, and desires.
He focuses on conservative, minimally-invasive approaches to dental treatments. Furthermore, he believes that open, honest communication is vital to the dentist/patient relationship and necessary for the best treatment outcomes.
In his free time, Dr. Patterson enjoys fitness, sports, technology, and spending time with his wife, who is also a Virginia Tech Hokie.
