West Cary Dental
I have been a patient of West Cary Dental for the past 8 years. I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Patel and his staff. The dental hygienist, Amanda is top notch, she does an excellent job cleaning/polishing my teeth and ensuring the health of my gums. She is very sincere and dedicated to providing her patients with the very best service. Dr. Patel consistently delivers quality care, he has been able to quickly diagnose and efficient treat any issues I've had. I had a crown put in by Dr. Patel a few years ago and have had zero issues with the tooth since. You can rest assured that Dr. Patel will only administer services that he deems necessary. For example. he will not recommend a filling unless he truly feels that a filling is required. I would highly recommend this practice to my friends and family.

I am very pleased with the care I've received at Dr. DeAngelo's office. I had the laser LANAP procedure done. The procedure was painless and went very smoothly. There are strict diet restrictions following the procedure but that is a small price to pay if you want to save your teeth. I was also pleased with the follow-up care that I received. They worked closely with my regular dentist's office to make sure that I was getting regular preventative care. The dental hygienists in the office were professional and very helpful in providing me the tools and knowledge I needed to enable me to take good care of my teeth and gums. Overall, I feel like I've received the highest standard of care that I could have hoped for and I am pleased with my experience.

Stutts III, Robert L DMD PA
I am NOT a fan of going to the dentist. Sign me up for just about anything else first! I needed a tooth removed that had had a previous root canal and was told it may be a bit more extensive than a quick tug and pull. I opted to be sedated by Dr. Stull's advice and it was a wise decision. He is awesome! Care, compassionand a great sense of humor are all A+ qualities for me in a dentist! I highly recommend him and will be singing his praises going forward. BTW ---I had no bleeding and no pain following the extraction!

i have had five dentists in my adult life. (My family was military, so we moved all the time- not fair to count the military dentists i had as a kid), Dr Ferri is by far the best dentist i've ever had. His chairside manner (learned that term from another dentist) is superb and most importantly - he and his staff LISTEN!!! it's amazing, they're genuinely interested and concerned and when you give your response, they care, acknowledge you and it all just works like you would hope and want it to. Thanks Dr. Ferri!!!

Wesley Bernard Smith, DDS
Dr. Wesley Smith is absolutely wonderful! I have been taking my children there for years. He is great with children of all ages. Mine are now 15, 20, & 22, and they don't mind going to the dentist at all. I am also a patient. I recently had to have 2 crowns. Dr Smith explained everything very clearly, and kept me informed every step in the process. His entire staff really care about the patients & go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. I will never change dentists!

Dr. Samantha Greer, DDS, PA
I liked this dentist. The girl at the front desk helped me out a lot with my insurance. The hygienist made me laugh, she was really nice. I was worried because i knew i needed a lot of work. Dr. Greer did a good job of showing me what i needed and why i needed it. I was worried because i couldn't afford to do all the work right away. The doctor was understanding and told me what areas to start with and what could wait. After a year, i'm finally done and never had a bad visit.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
