- Triple J Farm NC

"My kids love going to Great Smiles!  The whole staff is so friendly, loving, and patient with children. They fit us in when my daughter had an emergency cavity that our family dentist couldn’t address, and we had such a great experience that we moved our kids over to their practice for all of their dental care. Highly recommend!”

I’m an adult patient and have never had braces before! Great Smiles is excellent! High end technology, great kind staff and super super efficient. If you have put off getting braces…don’t. This place is very good at what they do! " 

- Tom C.

"Every aspect of my journey with them was exceptional! Truly. I was impressed with the practice at my first visit - their professionalism, knowledge, kindness…. But I leave their care even more amazed that they consistently delivered the highest level of service I have ever experienced in any medical practice. As a doctor, myself, that means a lot. Every visit I left their office feeling nurtured and grateful I had chosen Great Smiles to handle my orthodontic needs. The results of my treatment also far exceeded my expectations!” 

- Dr. Laura F.

"I started to have several issues with my teeth in my 50s and did not want traditional braces but with Invisalign I could get the results looking for without the hassle of braces. My experience at Great Smiles has been seamless, extremely helpful staff and Orthodontist exceeded my expectations and I am not even at the end of my journey. I would highly recommend this practice!" 

- Donna H. 

“The staff were cheerful and professional during every interaction. My daughter not only felt comfortable going, but EXCITED to go. We have made the decision to start coming here permanently. They genuinely care about the kiddos they see and you can tell.

“Great Smiles is an amazing pediatric dentist practice. My three kids have grown up under the care of their doctors. It is so helpful to have multiple kids' appointments at one visit. We've enjoyed the consistency of having the same staff involved in their care over the years (cleanings, etc.). They are so caring. I highly recommend this practice.”

- Lisa

"It’s been five months, my teeth ARE STRAIGHT! And the care is amazing. Very thorough, courteous, and took their time answering a ton of questions. Highly recommend." 

- Rebecca R.

"My daughter needed braces and they were so accommodating. Super thankful for an orthodontist that is local and their staff is always so nice. They make it a priority to take their time to listen to any concerns. Just a wonderful experience all around. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to take their child for braces!" 

- Crystal J.

“Everyone at Great Smiles is great. They are always accommodating. The doctors are awesome and provides great detail when speaking with you. They were able to relieve my daughter’s anxiety as she had a chip in her tooth. She had the biggest smile when she walked out to see me. Thank you for the care you take with your patients.”

- Carol

“The best place to bring your kids!!! My 6 year old had a meltdown because only big sis had an appointment one day. So the hygienist brought my 6-year-old tableside so she could watch her sister's teeth getting cleaned. Everyone is sooo patient and kind. They really do care about your child's overall experience at the dentist. My kids have grown up in this practice and have absolutely no fear of the dentist or anything that happens at the dental office. Their manner is amazing. All the hygienists are super sweet, gentle and kind.
