"I have been going to DentalWorks in Wakeforest for three years and I must say that from the front door to the dental chair they are AWESOME!! MJ and Laconia ( dental Hygienists) are truly the best. They took the time to explain the procedure to me and treated me with kindness. Monique Avery"- M.A. / Yelp / Jul 02, 2019
"I have been seen at this office since they first opened. My dental hygentist is awesome in cleaning my teeth 3 to 4 times a year and the dentist who has been seeing me since almost the beginning has been awesome in making sure I keep all my teeth and my mouth is healthy. If I have problems, they are always taken care within the timeframe they need to be. But I also clean my teeth when I am not at the dentist so it is a group effort. It has been a great experience all the way around and I would recommend them to anyone."- D. / Google / Jun 20, 2019
