Meet Linda Oliveros

I began my venture in dentistry in 1987. I have experienced different paths throughout the field of dentistry and enjoy working with Dr. Kling’s patients and being part of his magnificent team. I come from a strong customer service background and always look forward to cutting-edge technology to expand what we have to offer to our patients. As quoted on the website I love our motto, “New thinking, old world values, exquisite dentistry in pure comfort.” That is what I believe in and what our office strives for every day.

I am a native Virginian and live in Alexandria with my husband. We have two sons and a black lab named Oreo.

Tasha explains, ‘My dental career has been one of the best decisions I’ve made’. Being able to work with wonderful patients, being a source of comfort, and being a part of making them smile has brought me great joy’. I can also say that this is by far the best dental office and team I’ve ever worked with. Everyone is so loving, compassionate, and ready to help. ‘A true team’.

She also holds a B.S. degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Wisconsin. Rane relishes her profession as a hygienist, in part, because Dr. Kling has the latest and best equipment, tools, and techniques, and because of her interaction with patients. “I love working for Dr. Kling and the rest of our team. Dr. Kling’s commitment to a higher standard of dentistry is unmatched by any other dentist I have worked with,” observes Rane. “The staff is dedicated to providing the best care and everyone is excited about the dentistry we deliver under Dr. Kling’s direction and expertise. We really do care about our patients and have the opportunity to give quality time and workmanship to each individual who walks through our doors. It is a pleasure to be able to practice this way.”
