Fellow, Academy of General Dentistry Member, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Associate Member, American Academy of Periodontology Soon you will be meeting Dr. Lisa Marie Samaha. She is gracious, gentle and quick to smile. Immediately you will see the kindness and warmth in her eyes. Dr. Samaha is compassionate towards you and passionate about her profession. Perhaps this is not the image you had of a nationally recognized, highly accomplished, often published and truly talented cosmetic and restorative dentist, but she is why you are here. She understands what you understand; that a healthy smile is a precious thing. And your smile has the ability to be an outward expression of your inner value. Dr. Lisa Marie Samaha’s commitment to her patients and her pursuit of excellence in her own private practice and as a professional artist have earned her a national reputation in the Art of Fine Dentistry. This commitment is clearly reflected in the compassionate care so generously offered at Port Warwick Dental Arts, and needless to say, in thousands of beautiful smiles she has created in her roles as restorative dentist and cosmetic dentist. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Samaha graduated from the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry, Virginia Commonwealth University, and has been in private practice in Newport News since 1982. Her professional awards and affiliations run deep. She is also well-known for her presentations at medical and dental conferences on both local and national levels. Dr. Samaha is proud to be a part of an extensive family of healthcare professionals and esteemed educators, most importantly her late father, a periodontist, who inspired within her a passion for dentistry early in life. In 2003, Dr. Samaha fulfilled her vision of a beautiful, healing space as she created her office in the charming development of Port Warwick, in Newport News, Virginia. Her exceptional, highly talented team has assisted in the creation of a world-class practice which attracts a local, national and international clientele who appreciate their unique, comprehensive and holistic approach to dental care, always custom-designed for each patient. Although Dr. Samaha is well known for her artistry and technical excellence in smile design, the quality of our patient’s periodontal and thus, total health is also of highest concern at Port Warwick Dental Arts. Dr. Samaha works closely with our patient’s physicians to coordinate best healthcare for them, relative to their oral healthcare.
