Meet The Doctors
Since 1974, Spring Valley Dental has been Washington DC’s premier dental team.
Priya Grewal, DDS
Dr. Grewal is a native of the DC Metropolitan area, as she attended high school in Vienna, VA, received her Bachelor of Arts Degree with honors from the University of Virginia, and her DDS at the University of Maryland. Dr. Grewal has practiced since 2005 in the DC area as well as in Dallas, TX. She takes pride in her ability to not only alleviate pain but also, improve self-esteem in patients with cosmetic issues. For Dr. Grewal, the most rewarding part of dentistry is the personal doctor-patient relationship, as she strives to primarily address her patient’s concerns, and provide them with utmost care and respect, all with her gentle touch. Dr. Grewal continues her education and keeps up-to-date with changes in dentistry by attending continuing education courses in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and is an active member in the American Dental Association, DC Dental Society, Maryland State Dental Association, and American Association of Women’s Dentists.
MORE THAN JUST A DENTIST
Recently, Dr. Grewal became a Diplomate of American Dental Sleep Medicine, an accolade that less than 1% of Dentists in the US have attained! Outside of dentistry, Dr. Grewal enjoys being a mom to her three children (ages 12, 9, 5), spending time with her husband and large family, traveling, and is of course a DC sports team fanatic!
Following her dream of giving back to the community, Dr. Grewal has provided dental care for Special Olympics participants, Mission of Mercy programs and has participated in dental mission trips to serve those in need through the Operation Smile program in Vietnam! She has been selected to be one of the few dentists in leadership to lobby on Capitol Hill to ensure that access to dental care is treated as a priority for all Americans, particularly our most vulnerable population – our children. When you come to Spring Valley Dental, rest assured you are in great hands with Dr. Grewal.
Steve Philips, DDS
Communication and trust are key components of a good doctor-patient relationship. You will find that Dr. Philips will be your skilled dentist and soon thereafter a friend you can’t wait to see again! Dr. Philips spends time explaining to patients what their needs are and options for treatment then helps craft an individualized plan to meet their needs. He understands that he is treating a person, not a dental issue, and tries to create as pleasant a dental experience as possible for his patients. Dr. Philips grew up in New York and attended The New York University College of Dentistry. Following his graduation, he was able to join the United States Navy Dental Corps.
With his passion for continuing education, Dr. Philips achieved a great accolade of the Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry – only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. are AGD Fellows! When you see a dentist with FAGD behind their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. Dr. Philips has served as the Chairman of the District of Columbia Peer Review Committee.

“Dr. Grewal is an excellent addition to an already great practice. She is both a lovely person and a thorough and skilled dentist. In response to Riki Alexander I would only say that although he is not a woman, Dr. Philips shares all of the positive traits you referred to for Dr. Grewal.”
