Meet The Doctors

At Washington Metro Dental, our doctors embody our mission to make people happy and healthy. Our philosophy focuses on providing exceptional customer service and comprehensive care to improve our patients’ overall health and enhance their quality of life. We aim to change our patients’ perception of dentistry from problem-focused to preventive to keep them smiling for years to come.

Dr. Alexis C. Washington


I am Dr. Alexis Corbitt Washington, one of your general dentists here at the office. Helping patients achieve their best smiles makes each day exciting!

I graduated from North Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and a master’s degree in nutrition: food sciences. I went on to pursue my dental degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (rival schools, I know!). I continued my training at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, completing a general practice residency. Following a 6-year career providing dental care to homeless veterans at the DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center, I am bringing my love for dentistry and comprehensive care to Washington Metro Dental.

I am, and will always be, the consummate educational enthusiast! As such, I am a member of the DC Dental Society, the Greater Washington Academy of Dental Studies, and chairwoman of the Robert T. Freeman Dental Society. Keeping current with, and utilizing, the latest dental technology helps me create a comfortable and relaxed dental environment to care for patients.

I was born and raised in St. Croix, in the US Virgin Islands (60 miles southeast of Puerto Rico). I grew up in America’s Paradise, snorkeling and scuba diving in a place rich with culture! Currently, I enjoy finding new beaches around the world to explore and scuba dive. While at home in DC, my cockapoo, Sheba, and I enjoy parks and dog-friendly wineries.

Dr. Raha Yousefi

Welcome to Washington Metro Dental! I’m Dr. Raha Yousefi, and I love getting to know our community, one patient at a time. I appreciate each of my patients for who they are and respect each person’s opinions and ideas. I know that communication is key to my job, and I love talking to and learning about my patients.

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland before enrolling in dental school at Howard University. After graduation, I went on to specialize in periodontics at the University of Pittsburgh where I also earned my master’s in public health. Eventually, I came back home to DC to continue my family’s practice, Yousefi Washington Clinic, now Washington Metro Dental.

In addition to my formal schooling, I am enthusiastic about pursuing continued education both on a local and a national level. I feel that it is important to keep current with evolving technology, techniques, and materials to provide state-of-the-art treatment options for my patients. As a member of the District of Columbia Dental Society, a local chapter of the American Dental Association (ADA), I routinely participate in meetings that highlight issues that directly affect our area. I am also a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the Greater Washington Academy of Women Dentists, and the Greater Washington Academy of Dental Studies. My strong public health background has made me a well-rounded practitioner with expertise in a variety of dental disciplines.

I have lived in the DC metro area my whole life and I love being here. My husband, Vince, and I stay busy chasing around our three boys! Typically, you’ll see us enjoying the city at parks, festivals, and kid-friendly restaurants.

Dr. Mehdi Yousefi

Practice Founder

My name is Dr. Mehdi Yousefi, and I started Yousefi Washington Clinic in 1994 and have been practicing here ever since. I started this practice as a young man, and I am thrilled to say that my daughter is able to continue my legacy. I don’t practice as much as I used to, but I believe the practice, and more importantly the patients, are in great hands going forward. One of the proudest moments I’ve had as a father was when my daughter took on the responsibility of continuing care for our patients.

I received my Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD) from the National University in Iran. When I came to the United States, I went on to receive a sub-specialty in Geriatric Dentistry from Harvard University School of Medicine and Dentistry. I also studied at the University of Maryland and earned a master’s in Oral Pathology. Before opening Yousefi Washington Clinic, I served as a Research Fellow at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.

Now that I am a grandfather, I enjoy doing anything I can with my grandsons. They are all full of energy and they keep me active! I also enjoy traveling and eating as many new things as possible. Next time you see me in the office, ask me about my recent culinary adventures!
