I called in as a new patient and scheduled an appointment the next day. When I came in everyone was extremely nice and helpful (mind you it’s about 7am). Not knowing my insurance only accepts a few places, they found some options for me & I was still able to sit down with Dr. Baker and talk to him about things I’ve wanted to get done for my smile. He answered every question I had and has worked nonstop to find referrals to places I spoke to him about. 5/5 stars doesn’t do them justice, thank you to everyone in their office!
Dr. Baker is so helpful with information regarding the braces I have on, he's always concerned with how it’s going and answers all the questions I give him. The hygienist was also very thorough, gentle and super nice.
I do not enjoy the dentist! In fact over the past 15 years I have felt like dentistry has become a big business, all about the $- they’re on every corner, right? That all changed for me with an appointment at this office in Wake Forest! The staff is up front and friendly, the hygienists are detail oriented and all about education, and the dentists: no pressure and no sales pitch. Most importantly, they cared that I was comfortable and relaxed, which isn’t always easy in the dentist chair! Do yourself and your favor make this your dental team.
