Meet Our Dedicated Doctors

Dr. David Draper

Dr. David Draper

Dr. David had his fair share of rough dental experiences as a kid. He used to dislike going to the dentist, but he had lots of ideas on how to make dentistry more accessible and enjoyable. So, Dr. David decided to become a dentist himself. He graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery with a focus on oral surgery and implantology. Now, he’s on a mission to provide dental care that’s fun for both kids and grown-ups.

Dr. Flavius Popescu (Dr. P.)

Dr. Flavius Popescu (Dr. P.)

Born in Romania and raised in the great state of Ohio, Dr. P. learned early on that healthcare is a luxury for many people. Seeing his own parents’ struggle influenced Dr. P tremendously and drove him to become a dentist. Dr. P. carries a deep compassion for those in need and strives to create solutions whenever he can. Dental problems can be a heavy burden on people and his goal is to provide the best care in an efficient manner.

Dr. John Draper

Dr. John Draper

Soft-spoken and sweet, Dr. John is also on a mission to make dental visits fun and exciting! He’s really good with kids, and in fact, he has five and volunteers for his church nursery class. Because he’s gentle, it’s hard to believe that he has served almost a decade in the Army Reserves to include deployments to Iraq and Cuba.

Dr. David is SO good and patient with kids (and adults). Everyone at the practice is always super nice and helpful. We've recently seen Dr. P and he is also amazing!!! Love the Saturday hours, late workweek hours and the convenience of their new office in Cary! 100% recommended!!

VERY HAPPY with the service I received from Dr. David at Better Dental in Apex! I’m a BIG baby when it comes to the dentist, but even bigger when I am in pain and have to go. They had me fixed up and feeling so much better the same day! Can’t thank them enough- especially seeing me (a new patient) during this Pandemic!!! Never been happier leaving the Dentist before!

This office is absolutely wonderful. The girls at the front were extremely kind & helpful. My anxiousness was a bit overwhelming, but Allison walked me through each step of what was going to happen. She encouraged me & gave me breaks as necessary, putting a cool cloth on my head. I would recommend this dental office to everyone, and I will definitely return.  Thank you so much!

Have you ever looked forward to going to the dentist? Yeah, me neither..  until I found Better Dental. I've been going to Better Dental for over 3 years and every time I visit I am blown away by the level of professionalism and customer service.They really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable during your vist (massage chair in the waiting room, Netflix during cleanings, cookies after you visit -Yes COOKIES). I recommend this place to anyone looking for a truly better dental experience.

This is a unique and extraordinary dental practice. They care about the comfort and experience for the patient - and they don't charge through the nose for it. All the people who work there are patient, knowledgeable, loving and kind -- even Dr Better, the dentist! I highly recommend Better Dental. I am having work done that I've put off and feared for years!!

Better Dental makes going to the dentist easy and comfortable. Since moving out of Apex, I still choose to go there over anywhere else. Friendly and caring staff and overall welcoming environment. Also, budget-friendly. I don't think you could ask for more.
