Dr. Jingchao Li
Dr. Jingchao (Jean) Li, DDS, is a board-certified periodontist, which means she has been specially trained to handle procedures concerning the gums and other structures surrounding the teeth. This makes her specially qualified to handle delicate treatments such as gum disease therapy and the placement of dental implants.
After receiving her doctoral degree, she went on to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. This is a very distinguished award, and she received it by undergoing 3 years of additional training beyond her initial specialty education.
Dr. Li is highly experienced, highly motivated, and completely committed to providing the best possible care for all of her patients.
Dr. Oscar Valle-Cintrón
Dr. Oscar Valle-Cintrón chose to become a dentist because he loves being able to improve both a person’s health and appearance at the same time. He believes that a meticulous but gentle approach to dentistry is the best way to make sure his patients always get their desired results and have a positive experience while they are under his care.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Dr. Valle received his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus in 2005. He then went on to get his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Puerto Rico School of Dentistry. After receiving his doctorate, he completed post-doctoral training right here in Washington, DC at Howard University (where he also served as chief resident). Over the course of his career, he has received multiple awards and honors, including The American Academy of Oral Medicine Award and the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Award. He has also participated in several medical mission trips both locally and abroad, including trips to the Caribbean and the Middle East.
Dr. Valle is fluent in English and Spanish, a certified Invisalign provider, and he is trained in using computer-aided design/manufacturing technology. He is proud to be a part of the team at Dlight Dental because it allows him to focus all of his attention on what truly matters, and that’s his patients. Dr. Valle is married with a beautiful baby boy and two dogs. Outside of dentistry, his hobbies include drumming, paddle boarding, snowboarding, cooking, and traveling.
Dr. Donna Reid
Dr. Donna Ulanda Reid is our board-certified prosthodontist, which is an extremely elite dental specialty that concerns the restoration and replacement of lost and damaged teeth. Prosthodontists are often thought of as the “quarterbacks” of dentistry because they often lead teams of doctors through complicated cases. Together with Dr. Valle and Dr. Li, Dr. Reid provides comprehensive care to all of her patients at a level she is truly proud of.
Dr. Reid received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious Howard University College of Dentistry, during which time she received a multitude of awards. During her training, she completed clinical rotations in a wide variety of dental disciplines, such as restorative dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, periodontal dentistry, and more. After completing her doctorate, she went on to get a Master of Science degree from Columbia University.
Dr. Reid is also a very active member of the dental community, and she is currently a member of:
- The American College of Prosthodontics (ACP)
- The National Dental Association (NDA)
- The Academy of Osseointegration (AO)
- The American Dental Association (ADA)
