Kitt Creek Family Dentistry
I actually *enjoy* going to appointments at Kitt Creek Dentistry. I feel like I'm being treated as family. Dr Sun's confident manner and his great skill, born of years of experience, help me feel relaxed and confident myself. I enjoy the good natured staff who also project confidence and competence as well as being fun to visit with. I discovered Kitt Creek Dentistrywhen an abscess flared up early on a Saturday morning. I thought I'd have to endure a weekend of pain, but my wife discovered that KCD is open on Saturdays! Dr Sun says he does this because he is committed to helping people in every way possible. My Saturday appointment was truly a blessing and I'm sure Saturday hours are a blessing for others,  especially families with with stressed schedules. I'm glad it happened that way because I now have the best dentist and dental team I've ever experienced. The work Dr Sun has donehas greatly improved my quality of life.

Xiaojun X Wang, DDS
Dr. Wang is the best! She takes her time she explained everything to me and goes the extra mile to make sure I'm comfortable! I ABSOLUTELY HATE going to the dentist I had a bad childhood experience and I am damn near petrified of everything related to that dental chair but with Dr. Wong I was able to get my wisdom tooth pulled WITHOUT being put to sleep and practically no pain afterwards!!! AMAZING! She even sings to me to calm me down while I'm in the chair I have been going to her for years and I promise if I were to move to Timbuktu I would still come back to Durham NC twice a year to See Dr. Wang! Also her husband is extremely detailed with the insurance company making sure I am an covered for as much as possible to decrease my out of pocket expenses! They are a great team!

A NY resident but I recently got a full mouth crown done with Dr. Zhao. My office visits throughout the week in the Durham office were completely amazing. Dr. Zhao’s office is meticulously clean and filled with fun and caring staff that really loves what they do. The service and attention that I’ve received is by far the best I have ever had in my life. Dr. Zhao is very thorough and skillful in his field. He took the time to explain every step throughout the procedure so there were no surprises. Dr. Zhao’s expert knowledge and precision care resulted in a very beautiful set of new teeth. I absolutely love them and find myself smiling more often since its placement. The only downside is that I really wish Dr. Zhao was closer to NYC! I highly recommend him for any work.

Southpoint Family Dentistry
GREAT DENTAL PRACTICE AND DOCTORS!Dr. Belvett and the staff of Southpoint Family Dentistry are very professional, knowledgeable and caring.I was referred by my orthodontist to this practice for dental maintenance and care,three years ago and have been very pleased with the level of attention that my son and I have recieved. This practice has accomodated my son's college schedule seeing him when he is home on breaks ensuring that his dental health is attended to during the hectic college years. I,personally believe in PAIN FREE dentistry and Dr Belvett has provided me that experience during ALL my dental appointments including the ones for major dental work such as a crown and a dental implant! This is a wonderful dental practice and I recommend them often and highly.

Fine appointment but dishonest front desk. Called twice to have them verify my insurance and insurance coverage. Even provided my own recent XRays and insisted on new ones. Left with a $100 bill for a cleaning. Cannot trust them with money. I would avoid them; at the time of me checking out dentists I found a few instances of this in reviews but people weren't as thorough at checking with their insurance and the office (or so I thought) until it happened to me...since I have found those reviews have somehow been erased and filled in with fluffy reviews from what is most likely staff/family of employees - felt they were purposefully misleading. I'm a physician and was thorough about making sure the billing process lined up yet things still fell through. Bad experience.

Research Triangle Dental
Best dental office I've found in the Triangle by far. As someone who's not a fan of going to the dentist, I know that the doctors and staff go above and beyond to make me feel at ease after being a patient for the last 8 years. When I arrive for my appointments, the office staff greets me by name. They know me and treat me like family rather than a number. The hygienists and dentists are very knowledgeable, they take their time to answer all of my questions and when I've had treatment that's been needed, they're all so gentle and caring. I have referred many colleagues and friends to RTDental because I know they will get the best of the best care there. I trust RTDental with my people and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist.

Southpoint Family Dentistry
Southpoint Family Dentistry, Dr. Belvett's practice is the best dental experience I have ever had in my life. All staff from the receptionist to the Hygenists, to Dr. Belvett make it a priority to be sure their patients are comfortable and well cared for. I was used to "old time" dentists when I lived in Florida and I had never gotten anything free, like a toothbrush, since I was a child. Stepping into Dr. Belvitt's, I stepped into the current century! First time, ever, that I had been offered laughing gas. Also, even as an adult, I appreciate the free samples after the cleanings of a toothbrush, floss, etc. Glad to be a patient here.

Kevin DR Matthews DDS PA
i have been going there for over a decade now and will never ever go to another dentist. dr. matthews is the best ~ period. he has a supernice personality, and does superior work which has always been pain free. the dental hygenist is also as nice as can be and is as gentle as possible. i enjoy getting my teeth cleaned there as well as the little conversations we always have, because everybody always remembers you. you are more treated like a member of the family than as a client. the girls in reception are both wonderful and always extra friendly and helpful. i just love this dentistry. i would totally recommend this to everybody.

Carolina Smiles
This place is very professional and ironically racist. They treated my children harshfully and made comments about children's identity. There was a female dentist whom told My daughter to move that thing...which was her hair! She also blasted out her med info across the room as if her treatment wasn't supposed to be confidential. They also have strapped my children down unecessarily when they all were being compliant. They are intimidating and very unfriendly children. The staff is harsh and does not show professionalism nor do they comply with hippa regulations. I've heard them discuss notorious for strapped

McDuffie Dentistry
I had a great experience! Hard to say when coming from a dental office but Dr McDuffie was awesome!!! She was gentle and patient with me and I am truly dental phobic. Not to mention the staff pitched in to try and keep me comforted by offering music and blanket and even a neck pillow. It is not the cheapest dental office but I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for and I was looking for the best, not the cheapest. I have been back twice already and in my experienced older age, I believe that dental office is the best!!!
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
