Meet Dr. Adrian Avram


Dr. Avram grew up in Romania and earned his dental degree at luIiu-Hatieganu University, School of Dental Medicine in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He received his Certificate for Advanced Education in General Dentistry from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 2009, Dr. Avram moved to Virginia with his family. With over 15 years’ experience, he is dedicated to providing exceptional dental care for children, adolescents, and adults. 

Dr. Avram stays abreast of the latest clinical and technological advances in dentistry. He has trained with internationally recognized dentists like John Kois, of the Kois Center in Seattle, WA, and Frank Spear, Founder and Director of Spear Education. Dr. Avram believes these credentials are absolutely necessary for a practitioner to provide the best treatment possible for each of his patients. Currently, he is enrolled in the fellowship program of the Academy of General Dentistry, which requires 500 hours of continuing education and passing a rigorous exam. 

During his training in dental school, he met his wife, Zheni, who is an internist with a specialty in geriatric medicine. Together they have two children, David and Erik. When he has a chance, he also likes biking, skiing, and traveling. 

Giving back to the community is very important to Dr. Avram. He has volunteered at the Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburg, PA, helping patients with terminal illnesses, after he lost a close member of his own family to cancer. He is a volunteer with Wintergreen Ski Patrol, helping injured individuals receive first aid at the scene of accidents. Currently, he is the assistant coach for his son’s soccer team.
