Meet Dr. Milan Simanek
Our youngest doctor, Dr. Milan Simanek, joined Fairfax Family Dental Care in Fairfax, VA, in 2011. He attended a local college, George Mason University, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. (During his time at George Mason University, the Patriots basketball team made their first run to the Final Four in Indianapolis.) He continued his education at VCU School of Dentistry in Richmond, and notably, was accepted first round to the highly-competitive dental program.
After graduating, he moved back to Fairfax, Virginia, and joined our practice. As a practicing general dentist, Dr. Simanek particularly enjoys performing orthodontics, oral surgery procedures, implants, endodontics, and cosmetic procedures.
As a provider of orthodontic treatment, Dr. Simanek has earned the Tier Advancement level of Fellow in two prominent orthodontic credentialing organizations. The first of these organizations is the American Orthodontic Society (AOS) headquartered in Dallas, Texas. The AOS membership is made up of approximately 1,600 members, primarily from the United States and representative of general dentists and pedodontists, as well as orthodontists who limit their practice to only orthodontic treatment.

The second orthodontic organization is the International Association for Orthodontics (IAO) headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The IAO membership includes over 4,000 general dentists practicing orthodontics, pedodontists practicing orthodontics, and orthodontists from the United States, in addition to members from other countries throughout the world, who provide orthodontic care directly for their patients.

Most recently, Dr. Simanek was one of the few dentists selected by the International Association for Orthodontics for the IAO Instructors Institute. This year-long course has prepared him to begin teaching and lecturing to his fellow doctors in the surrounding Virginia and DC Metro Area on new orthodontic techniques and methods. He earned his Senior Instructor Certificate from the Instructors Institute after giving several lectures to fellow doctors including the DC Dental Society and Fairfax Oral Surgery Study Group. He is currently scheduled to speak at the 2017 Annual Meeting for the International Association for Orthodontics.
At national orthodontic meetings, Dr. Simanek frequently presents unusually difficult orthodontic cases that he has treated. These presentations demonstrate his outstanding orthodontic results and have earned him awards for Case of the Year multiple times.
Dr. Simanek is also multilingual, speaking English, Spanish, and Czech. Dr. Simanek’s gentle and down-to-earth demeanor has earned him the loyalty of his many patients. Although accomplished professionally, Dr. Simanek is still able to find time to stay active and enjoy himself outside of work, playing Ultimate Frisbee (What's Ultimate?) and volleyball, camping in the great outdoors, taking in performances at The Kennedy Center, and traveling locally and abroad during his off-time. Some of his most treasured memories from his travels that he captured on film have been displayed in our office, such as the rare and unusual species he observed and photographed in the Galápagos Islands.
Dr. Simanek is looking forward to welcoming you and your family into our practice and helping you achieve your dental goals!
