Meet Dr. Muna Strasser
Dr. Muna Strasser truly loves being a dentist. Over the years, she has had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and build relationships with patients that have become part of her extended family.

She received her B.S. degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and her Doctor of Dental Surgery from Medical College of Virginia in 1991.
