Having had terrible dentist experiences in my past, I was really afraid my four year old would be traumatized himself. Nothing further from what actually happened. He had an awesome experience not only with the dental hygienist but also with Dr. Moran. I’m very pleased with the atmosphere, kindness of everyone in the office and I look forward to keep coming back knowing my son was treated and will continue to be treated as special as he is.” – A. Ordonez
They are AWESOME!!! The Assistant KayKay was wonderful with my 2 year old. This was her first time.” – K.Kenon
My 10 year old has been going to Wake Orthodontics and Pediatrics since he was 3. They have always been so wonderful with him, and therefore he has never had any fear or hesitancy in going to the dentist. He is now also seeing the Orthodontics side of the practice as well and they are just as wonderful. His younger brother who is now 3 has just made his first trip to Wake Ortho and Pediatrics today. He was so scared and did not want to go back to see the dentist. The hygienist was so caring towards him and put him at ease within minutes of being in the chair. My 3 year old left with a huge smile and thumbs up to everyone. After each visit, the hygienist and the dentist explain to you how the visit went and take the time to answer any questions you may have. Would not want to take my children anywhere else for their dental needs. The office is extremely clean. There is more than adequate seating. The receptionist is friendly and helpful and works with you with any concern you may have. The entire staff is friendly and patient; from the time you sign in, all the way up to making your next appointment before leaving. Love, love, love this place!” – A. Whatley
Great team, excellent services!” – H.Qasim
The dentist was very specific and the details of my child’s care and his explanation of her diagnosis was very clear! The staff was very polite and the office was clean. I could not ask for a better dental office.” L. Wallace
My Daughter is a patient at both Wake Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentist since the age of 3. The staff is always friendly, the atmosphere is low stress and the facility is geared toward children of all ages. My Daughter who is now 13 has no complaints and that’s what I like most of all.” T. Jones
My three and a half year old had his first cleaning today and it went swimmingly because of the excellent staff at Wake Pediatric Care. They did a great job of explaining the steps to him in an easy to understand way and made it fun.” E. Vlkojan-Reece
Coming to Wake Ortho & Ped Dentistry is easy – our children are very comfortable. They run on time and couldn’t be nicer! Great dentists and staff.” – S. Schmalz
I just love the staff. Dr. Dave is our go to man for our sweet baby girl. He is always so patient and understanding. I highly recommend these awesome people.” A. Thorpe
As always, everyone was extremely friendly, professional and made my children feel at ease. They get excited to go to the dentist. The dentist answered our questions, took time with us, and helped us understand the additional needs he recommended. Very happy with today’s visit.” – L. Windell
Dr. Kornstein was very thorough and kind. I felt very good about the way he treated me and more importantly my child. Thank you so much for making this a fun experience for her, she talked about it all day!”
Always find this office very accommodating and professional. Dr. Kornstein is so friendly and makes my children feel very comfortable with any treatment he gives them. I am very pleased with this office.” – Amy Eddins
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,” — Rebecca Byers
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.” — Linda
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.” — Pam
I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.” – Vivian
My daughter’s first dental visit was simply wonderful. The staff was welcoming and friendly. They broke everything down to me, and treated my daughter with great compassion! I’m looking forward to her next visit, and I’m sure she is too!” M.H.
We love Dr. Dave and his staff. Awesome environment & great energy! The new office is beautiful and I LOVE that they have wireless so I may continue to work while my daughter is being treated.” — Shelley
LOVE 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!” – Avery
Dr. Kornstein was great. He took the time to explain everything and calm the fears of the patient as well as the parents. Thanks.”
Phenomenal!! I was invited back to be with my son and everything was explained exceptionally well. We were seen by Dr. Rob.” – Kenneth
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!!” – Tracy M.
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
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.
Thank you for “one of the best dental health presentations” ever offered at our pre-school. The sessions were perfectly geared to the ages and interests of our young students, and Mrs. Barbara Denning, the dental Hygienist, was wonderful with the children. Some parents even commented that their children demonstrated for them the correct way to brush their teeth after participating in the session. We eagerly look forward to your visit to our school again next year.” – Carrie Griffith, Director
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!!!”
Dr. Pretzer and his nurse/hygentist (Sharon) were extremely kind and helpful to my daughter and I. This was her first visit to the dentist and she left feeling proud. The doctor went above and beyond by also counting the teeth of my 20 month old son. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.”
My daughter had a wonderful experience! Everyone was extremely kind, my daughter actually can’t wait to return. smile emoticon Bonus points for having 2 Keurigs with lots of drink choices, awesome play area & the giant bouncy ball machine!! Highly recommend!” – Jana G.
Thank you all so much for squeezing my daughter in after she had a nasty tumble at daycare. I had great peace of mind knowing that you were so accessible and had after-hours emergency care if needed. Helped ease some of this mommy’s worry! And even though I knew she would be upset during any procedure (standard for a toddler), she shared waves and “fist bumps” as we left.” – Amanda R.
My children have received care at this practice for nearly a year now. I have been very pleased with the professionalism, care, and quality of service extended to our family. Today’s visit reminded me why I love this practice so much! You all exceeded my expectations!” – Teresa R.
Thank you so much Dr. Pretzer and the whole office for great experience at a dentist office ! You got our teeth for life!!!” – Ghenet M.
Thankful I found a dental office with an amazing atmosphere and staff!” – Tiffany S.
I can’t thank you guys enough for the kindness you showed my Ethan today. Way beyond my expectations!!!!” Sherrie C.
My boys enjoy every visit! You have made their experiences truly awesome for the past 10 years. Thank You very much!!” – Juana H.
Had a wonderful visit today at both the pediatric dentist and orthodontist! We especially loved Dr. Dave and his ability to make this first visit feel fun..” – Barbara K.
My five year old son was seen yesterday for an “emergency ” visit. The night before he jumped off the couch and hit his mouth on the arm of the sofa. I panicked when I saw his tooth was loose and the other teeth slightly shifted. When I arrived at the office the following morning we were seen immediately. I was assured my son was just fine. Apparently his teeth were already loose! He just turned 5 last week and I didn’t expect him to have loose teeth so soon! The staff were extraordinarily kind and helpful. My children look forward for their biannual cleanings here also. I highly recommend Wake Orthodontics & Pediactric Dentistry. I wish they would take me as a patient! – Toni D.
My favorite dental experience so far for my 2 year old, I was seen by Dr. Moran who was absolutely amazing with my son! I felt like he really cared and tried to make my son and I comfortable. Also the dental tech was very helpful and sweet as well! Definitely would recommend to other parents to bring your children here!” – Sherry E.
Dear Sharon, Thank you for pulling out ted. You have so much patience for me and I am so happy! The tooth fairy gave me five dollar – Julia.
Dear Sharon, I’m not sure if you noticed your angel wings when you were getting dressed this morning, but Julia and I are convinced that you have them!! We can’t thank you enough for your tremendous patience and incredible kindness that you showed to us both yesterday. As a mom with very little patience, especially in the face of panic, I know I was drawing from your calm and patience yesterday in order to endure that stress and to be calm for Julia’s sake. That was one of the top 5 toughest parenting moments for me and I know we wouldn’t have come through it the way we did without you. Julia told me this morning that she felt “proud” for yesterday. It was a HUGE growth moment for that sweet little girl to conquer the fear!! Please know how much you’ve touched our lives and we will be forever grateful to you for getting “ted” cut. Julia said he belongs on the floor anyway and the tooth fairy brought her $5!! Forever grateful!” – Jen W.
