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!

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.

Do I Need A Tooth Extraction?

Even with the latest and greatest in science and technology, some teeth just cannot be saved and will need to be extracted (pulled) to preserve your oral health. Untreated broken or decayed teeth will eventually lead to significant problems such as tooth pain, an inability to chew or speak properly, or – even worse – to an infection. Without prompt treatment, a dental infection can actually become life-threatening. 

If you are experiencing tooth or gum pain, reddening, or swelling, please immediately make an appointment. We also offer wisdom teeth removals to provide relief. Call or visit Better Dental right away for the care you need to smile again.

Do Teeth Extractions Hurt? 

There’s no need to worry about teeth extractions at Better Dental. While you may experience some pressure during the extraction, our dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and reduce any pain. Our team offers sedation dentistry options and top-notch technology and equipment to make our teeth extractions are as pain-free as possible. 

If you’re still feeling anxious about your procedure, we also offer a full menu of comfort aids to choose from, so be sure to ask how we can make your visit a pleasant one!
