Leslie-Anne Fitzpatrick, DMD, MPH grew up in Trinidad & Tobago, a twin island republic in the Caribbean, and moved to the United States when she was 18 years old to pursue her undergraduate degree at Columbia University. Inspired by her parents and family, Dr. Fitz always knew that she wanted to improve lives however she could. Dr. Fitz was inspired to enter dentistry due to her love for and desire to combine art with science.

Dr. Fitz completed her undergraduate studies in Environmental Sciences and a minor in French, all while being a varsity field hockey player, then went on to earn her Master’s degree in Public Health from Columbia University. She pursued her goal of becoming a dentist by attending one of the nation’s top rated dental schools, the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. After graduating, she completed a General Practice Residency at Howard University Hospital. This was a major accomplishment given the fact that Black dentists in the US are significantly underrepresented and make up only 3.8% of the dental workforce (2020).

Outside of the dental office, Dr. Fitz and her family are very much a part of the Petworth community and you will likely see her at the farmers’ market, local gym, supermarket, restaurants and coffee shops. You’ll also almost always find her at the local parks with her young kids.

Dr. Fitz is an active member of the American Dental Association and the DC Dental Society. Dr. Fitz continually strives for excellence in dentistry, and she is known for her gentle and caring approach to treating her patients.
