Meet the Team

Dr. Niloo

Niloofar Mofakhami, DDS—known to her patients as Dr. Niloo—is proud to serve the community in which she grew up. She attended Mosby Woods Elementary School, Luther Jackson Middle School, and Oakton High School. After graduating as valedictorian from OHS, Dr. Niloo attended the University of Virginia, where she studied biology and religious studies. She graduated from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry and completed her two-year postdoctoral training (residency) in pediatrics at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC. Her goal of becoming a dentist since the age of 10 was finally achieved! Prior to opening her own practice in 2005, Dr. Niloo practiced pediatric dentistry in McLean and Reston. Dr. Niloo is a Diplomate of the American Board Pediatric Dentistry, which means she is a board certified pediatric dentist. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Northern Virginia Dental Society. She is fluent in English, Farsi, and French. Dr. Niloo lives in Oakton with her husband (Matt), her two sons, and her dog. Her interests include hiking, traveling (especially to different ballparks around the country), watching movies, studying different cultures and languages, community service, and watching her boys play baseball and basketball. She is a proud sponsor of Vienna Little League.

Dr. Nora

Dr. Nora Abdel-rahim joined our CDO team in September 2021. Dr. Nora grew up in Tampa, FL and received her degree in dentistry from the University of Florida College of Dentistry, GO GATORS. She then completed her general practice dental residency at Bronx Care Hospital followed by her pediatric dental residency training at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, New York. It is during her stay in New York that Dr. Nora became a foodie, always looking for something new and exotic to eat.  After residency she settled in Oakton, Virginia with her husband (Mahmoud) and now 1 year old boy. Dr. Nora is excited to be a part of our community where she hopes to provide preventive care in a fun and relaxing environment.
