Welcome to Our Practice

South Gate Dental: Serving The Loudoun County and Leesburg, VA  Area

Dentist Leesburg, VA

Dr. Knapp Heisey remains dedicated to providing the best and most up-to-date treatment for her patients. As such, she continues to keep herself current on dental practices and procedures so that she can provide the best care possible for her patients.

By incorporating an interceptive approach, we are able to offer integrative dental care and bring together those factors of health, stability and function, with comfort and appealing aesthetics.

At our Leesburg dental practice, you can expect an interceptive, integrated approach to your oral health care needs. It has been our experience since 1983 that by using this approach we have been able to achieve an extremely high level of success.

Patients are taught to understand the most common factors that can potentially lead to a less than ideal state of dental health. With the appropriate oral health education and the presentation of one or, when indicated, several dental treatment plans the very best care for each person's circumstances will be provided.
