Our Patients Love Us!

Thank you so much for a truly wonderful experience this afternoon. Your staff was so friendly, helpful, and professional! The kids had a great time and left school today making quite a fashion statement in their tie-dyed shirts, sunglasses, and water bottles.

We have been going to see Dr. Macon since ’08. I like the professionalism of all the staff, from the front desk all the way to the doctors. They all treat everyone with respect and genuine care. I also appreciate that they are mindful of my time. Waits are never long and service is quality and efficient. 5 stars!
Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen have done a fabulous job; my teeth look great! I am so pleased with the results. The office is filled with a funny, warm, professional staff, which truly has been a pleasure to see each month. The best compliment I can give is, my experience was such a positive one that when I found out my daughter needed to see an orthodontist, Dr. Macon was our first choice. Thanks, Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen!

Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen and their staff are so great! They are fun, nice, and talkative. They make you feel good and they sure know how to work on your teeth because now my braces are off and I am leaving with a smile! Thanks Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen and staff!

I am very pleased with the way my smile has improved. I have always been self conscious on my bottom teeth. Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen straightened them in less than one year for a minimal expense. They even financed me! During my visits, their staff was always kind and considerate. There was seldom any waiting time and the procedures were done efficiently.

We have been very pleased with our experience with Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen. I appreciate that they did not encourage us to rush any step of our children’s orthodontic needs. Instead, they were patient to make sure the time was right for each of them. They provided us assurance along the way regarding each of their unique challenges. I would definitely recommend Dr. Macon, Dr. Collie, & Dr. McCutchen to my friends.

Thank you so much for giving me a beautiful smile and treating me with kindness during my visits. Having braces was a fun and unforgettable experience. I’m so happy to have a smile worth showing off, all thanks to you!
Our experience with Wake Orthodontics has been perfect. The office is clean and pleasant, the staff is always nice and polite, our appointments are on time, and, by the way, our son’s smile looks fantastic! It’s the best medical experience we’ve ever had. Thanks for all you do!
M. Crocker
Dr. McCutchen, Dr. Macon and Dr. Collie and their staff are wonderful! They explained the planned treatment in detail and patiently answered all of our questions. We have been extremely impressed with the level of professionalism. Also, their office is brand new and gorgeous-plenty of natural light and comfy furniture. We’ll definitely be returning with our younger daughter when it is time for her to get braces.
Sara H.
Thank you so much for the caring way you handled my daughter at her recent dental check-up and cleaning. You and your staff showed such patience and I really appreciate it. It means so much that you all care and treat “special” kids like Melanie so nice.
Mrs. Brock
My 5 year old was afraid to go to the dentist until we found Dr. Pretzer. Now my 3 year old and 5 year old look forward to their appointments. Dr. Pretzer and his staff know how to handle a child expressing “anxiety” — they know how to turn a tear into a smile. This is exactly why I refer this office to anyone that asks me if I know a good pediatric dentist Thank you Dr. Pretzer!
Tracey M.
Thank you so much for being so patient and kind to Garrett. He was definitely a handful. You are truly the Best! I will recommend you to everyone. Thanks again.
Donna W.
Dr. Dave has a gift for relating to children and their parents. I so appreciate his kind and gentle nature.
Thanks for the wonderful experience. The girls want to know when they can go to the dentist again!” “It was a GREAT experience!! Loved the staff and my daughter thought the dentist was wonderful. Thanks for making her comfortable and excited about coming back!
My son has had severe anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist, we have been through three different dentists before we found Wake Pediatrics. He has felt absolutely no anxiety whatsoever with having work done on his teeth. I just want to thank all the staff for such great patience with working with children that are scared, they have turned my son around. Now he asks, “When can we come back”! Thanks.
Becca B.
We always have a great experience at this dental office. We have been going there for about 6 years and our daughter is now 9. She never has expressed anything negative about the treatment she gets there, except she doesn’t like getting the novocaine … but who does! They always treat her so nice and make her feel very at ease. Dr. Pretzer is a very compassionate dentist and does a very good job. We are well pleased with this dental office. Thank you.
Fantastic experience. We appreciate all the time given to us to explain before, during and after the procedure. Dr. Kornstein and staff were great and the genuine effort given to make it a good experience for us shows us the staff really cares.
OVE the experience we have had with each of our visits! Think Dr. Kornstein is amazing with my kids. My daughter wouldn’t stop talking to him post appointment (even though he probably had something he needed to go do) and he was so patient gave her all of his attention. Such an unbelievable trait given the busy nature of a Dr.’s office!
