What Our Patients Say

"Very helpful, personable, and always fits me in when I need a last-second appointment. My whole family goes here, and we love both Dr. Whitley and Dr. Benson. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!"

Lisa K.

"My husband and I have trusted our dental care to Raleigh Dental for years. More recently, my 92-year-old mother needed care after chipping a tooth, so I knew where to take her. Dr. Whitley was so kind and caring as he beautifully repaired her smile. We love the staff and the dentists and highly recommend them!"

"Dr. Whitley and his staff are top-notch! They get you right in and there is no wait in the waiting room or in the dentist chair. All the staff is friendly and know their stuff."

- Sarah S.

Everyone here is so friendly! I look forward to my annual visits because of how nice everyone is. I've been to a lot of dental offices where I'd only see the dentist for less than a minute at the end of my appointment. Here, Dr. Benson spends a good amount of time working with me, answering my questions, and giving me feedback on my teeth. I appreciate the amount of time and effort everyone here gives me as a patient! I always leave feeling satisfied and with squeaky clean teeth. If you're afraid of Dentists, check out this place. You won't regret it!
