About Us

smiles for life

Our mission and approach

We believe the pursuit of happiness starts with oneself. We'll help you smile at life so life can smile back at you. At Dulles Life Smiles, our mission is threefold: to provide our community with comprehensive, gentle, and high quality dental care with transparent enthusiasm and warmth; to care about our patient's comfort and their understanding of everything related to their dental care; and to strive to maintain a caring environment that is respectful of all people.

Your Trusted Ashburn Dentist

Gino Valdivieso-Chiang, DDS

Dr. Gino was born in Peru, where he began his dental career. With several years of dentistry under his belt, he decided to move to America with his wife in 2011. He enrolled in Advanced Education at Howard University in Washington, DC and later received his license to practice. Dr. Gino has now been providing patients with quality dental care in Virginia for over six years.
Dr. Gino is passionate about educating his patients about their oral health. He always ensures that each of his patients is informed and understands every aspect of their treatment plan. Dr. Gino hopes that through open communication, he can collaborate with his patients to foster lifelong dental wellness. He feels rewarded when he is able to make a difference in his patients lives and see their healthy, happy smiles.
Outside of the office, Dr. Gino loves to spend time with his wife, Shirley, and his kids, Nicolas and Zoe. Together they enjoy getting outdoors, going on trips, watching movies, listening to music, and star gazing.
Dr. Gino is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, the International Association for Orthodontics and the Loudoun Chamber. He has also received the Certificate of Achievement from the International Association for Orthodontics. Dr. Gino continues to pursue diverse continuing education courses in an effort to be able to provide his patients with the latest dental and orthodontic treatments available.

Committed to Community


At Dulles Life Smiles, a smile for life means going beyond dental care. We want to foster compassion and wellness in all aspects of our lives. That is why we support A Place to Be, a local nonprofit dedicated to providing music therapy for kids with disabilities, medical and mental struggles. For every new patient who comes to our practice, we provide educational and promotional materials for A Place To Be. Do good for yourself and your community by scheduling your first visit today!

Working with a nonprofit, like A Place To Be, that provides musical therapy is near and dear to Dr. Gino's heart. In Peru, he grew up playing the piano or guitar for hours everyday. He used to be shy and insecure as a kid, but music helped him show the best of himself performing in public and overcoming those insecurities. He has firsthand experience of how transformative performing music can be for kids in need in our community. With music therapy, kids with disabilities can get the confidence booster they need to overcome their struggles and improve their quality of life!
