Every time I have an appointment here I am welcomed warmly and treated with respect. The dental assistants and hygienists always make sure I am comfortable and know what is going on. As a college student, it can be difficult to find time for appointments, but this office has always been willing to work with my schedule.

All of the staff at Downtown Dental are so kind, friendly, and professional. They always do a wonderful job with communication and with cleanliness. During COVID-19, they have elevated their efforts to create an even more safe, comfortable space. I especially appreciate Ashli’s patience and generosity with her time to speak with me and walk through all of my questions. Thank you so much!

I’ve been with downtown dental for about a year now and they have been very great. Great customer service and accommodation. They’re also very attentive to any issues you might experience as a result of their work, and they will keep after it until fixed. Ronda has been a wonderful dental hygienist and have listened and advised on any issues I have experienced, why I may have and how to resolve them. Thank you!!

Had my first appointment with Ashli and she was fantastic. She was gentle with the cleaning and extremely thorough when talking about her concerns. She also took pictures of my teeth and had them on a television screen so I could see what she was talking about. The office is very clean and welcoming from my first impression walking in. Definitely recommend!

Dentist appointments usually make me a little nervous. Trying to get myself to set up an appointment is like pulling teeth. I had an appointment with Ashli last week. She was fantastic! She was personable and explained every step along the way. I would absolutely recommend going to see Ashli the next time you visit Downtown Dental

I started coming to downtown dental when I moved to Raleigh and loved the staff and the atmosphere. In the time since I started coming here, I have moved to Puerto Rico and Philadelphia and have traveled back to this office to receive my dental care. The two women at the front desk always know who I am and keep me entertained while waiting for my appointment. My hygienist has the difficult job of holding a fairly one sided yet engaging conversation while she’s doing her work and she does that masterfully. I’d recommend this office and it’s staff to anyone looking for dental care.

I really can’t say enough about how much I appreciate downtown dental. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, caring, and skilled to say the least. They truly care about you as a person and a patient. Not to mention they have a great location and atmosphere. They are a big part of why I continue to choose to live downtown.

I just moved to Raleigh over the summer and needed a new dentist. From my first visit at Downtown Dental, I felt really comfortable and like I was being taken care of. Alexa Taylor at the front desk is so welcoming and helpful! Dr. Woll is awesome! He helped me go through a quick Invisalign treatment and I’m loving my new straighter teeth. All in all, love this office and am happy to be a patient here 🙂

It’s hard to find a good dentist, but now that I found them, I’m not leaving! I’ve been coming here for over a year now. Great location and practice! Everyone is so friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They do a thorough cleaning, and are happy to answer any questions I have.

Best dental practice in Raleigh. Everyone is so friendly and always punctual. Ashleigh always makes each visit enjoyable. Such a great personality. Same for Dr. Woll, Candice and Vanessa and all the front desk crew. I moved away from downtown 4 years ago and I still make the trip because they truly are the best 🙂

I first came to Downtown Dental when I needed to catch up on some fillings after moving to Raleigh from out of state. I found them through my insurance. It’s been a great experience, nearly 4 appointments later, and in my budget. From fixing a damaged filling, x-rays, routine cleaning, to preparing an onlay. I slightly dread going to the dentist, but I would be lying if I said the numbing, Netflix, and lovely staff didn’t help.

Love Downtown Dental! I’ve been going there for 6 years now, and even though I don’t live or work downtown anymore I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Everyone there is incredibly nice and personable. Ashli has been my hygienist every time and she’s great; very knowledgeable and gentle when working on your teeth. I highly recommend Downtown Dental, my past roommates took my recommendation and would vouch for me.

I was traveling on business and had some sticky food pull off a crown, and Downtown Dental was recommended by a co-worker. They were able to fit me in within a couple of hours of my phone call to cement it back on. Everything about my experience there was positive, professional, clean, and seamless. They even looked up my insurance details from the info I provided over the phone, and had everything ready when I arrived. It’s apparent that they really enjoy what they do, and that’s the foundation for a good dental care experience. If I’m in town when my next semi-annual checkup and cleaning comes due, Downtown Dental is where I’ll be.

I visited this office with upon the recommendation of the super helpful receptionist, Laura. She was pleasant, listened to my needs, and recommended this office highly. As someone with a past a a receptionist, I thought her phone skills were out of this world amazing and so professional. The office is small, but chic and had a lovely modern appeal. I visited for a routine visit and cleaning. Morgan, the other receptionist was super personal and helped me out with a parking situation since I’m not super familiar with downtown. My hygienist, Stacy, was very thorough and l left knowing my teeth were sparkling clean. I only briefly saw my dentist, as this was a routine visit, and he was incredibly nice and helped me understand what I needed and what would be done in the future. Overall, I’d highly recommend this office.

Dr. Wells pilots a warm, prompt and smooth operation in the heart of downtown’s burgeoning neighborhood. The staff was friendly and the facilities were chic and inviting. The wait time was short. The hygenist was thorough and efficient. And best of all, my insurance (along with hopefully most others) was accepted. With so many amazing restaurants in the city to sink your teeth into, it’s great that there’s a top-tier place nearby that can clean the foodie fangs when you’re done!

I’ve had three experiences now at Downtown Dental, and every one of them has been outstanding. Excellent service, professionalism in every way, beautiful facility, and the most modern of dental technology. And as far as I can tell as a non-dentist/non-dental person, everyone seems exceptionally competent.

Requested my appointment via email and the staff responded immediately. I was offered a weekday appointment during my lunch hour and provided the paperwork to complete ahead of time. I arrived on time for my appointment, paperwork completed, and was able to be in and out in under an hour- amazing! The staff and doctor were professional and efficient. The office is very clean and conveniently located downtown. The ease of the appointment making process, efficiency of the staff, convenient location, and overall amazing staff and doctors have made me a life-long patient. Highly recommend.

I have been going to Downtown Dental for over three years, and they are amazing! All of the dentists and staff are fantastic and have always made me feel comfortable and welcome. I always request Ashli as my hygienist because I started with her, and she is both thorough and painless…all while being enjoyable to hang out with during your appointment! They seem to accept many dental insurance plans, which has been convenient no matter who my provider is. Morgan and the team at the front office are great about confirming your insurance coverage to let you know up-front about the prices of procedures prior to your appointment, which takes the guessing game and uncertainty out of dental care. I love their Downtown Raleigh location, which is a nice bonus. I have recommended many friends and coworkers to them, and all have had equally positive experiences.

The convenient location in all of the downtown area. This place is immaculate, the staff is knowledgeable and precise. If offers amazingly modern designs surrounded by historic buildings. The foyer doesn’t make you feel like your in a sterile icky environment put a super stylish and comfortable setting. This cutting edge location gets an A+ all the way around.

Jessica D. from Umstead, Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing! I have been terrified of the dentist for years, but they were so welcoming and accommodating. Vanessa and Stephanie up front handled all of my excessive insurance questions with smiles, and Anna Marie assisted Dr. Wells during my root canal and it was completely painless. Will never go anywhere else again!

Jennifer L. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Coming from someone who moves on average, every three years I have been to quite a few dentist offices. Needless to say this was the best experience I have ever had. From start to finish Downtown Dental was top notch. The hygienist was very gentle and everyone was very friendly. Dr. Wells was on time and his office was fully equipped with all the newest technology, there are even T.V.’s in each room for your viewing pleasure as you kick back and relax as they go to work on you pearly whites! I highly recommend Downtown Dental.

Downtown Dental is great. They provide very good and painless service. Plus they have appointments after 5pm so I don’t have to take off work. They make sure you don’t forget your appointment by reminding you a couple of weeks out, then again the day before then the morning of the appointment. For somebody as absent minded as I am, that’s a good thing.

Angela B. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Love the team, atmosphere, and efficiency of this office. I came on my lunch break, and was in and out in about an hour (new patient check ups take a bit longer). The paperwork was minimal and the wait was short. There was coffee, La Croix, and water in the waiting area too! Very clean and modern office, which I love. Being able to see my X-rays and the pictures of my teeth up on the tv screen was really cool. The ease of scheduling online and the nice office downtown is what initially drew me to this office, but the experience and customer service will keep my coming back. I got a cute little new patient bag with some goodies too!

Been coming here for over two years. Beyond the trendy museum-like space and convenient location for downtown workers and residents, what sets DD apart is the personalized service. From the doctors to the reception staff, everyone here exudes a warm and welcoming vibe. My hygenist, Shiloh, makes each routine cleaning visit feel like catching up with an old friend!

Alexa, Austin, Sydney, and Dr. Wells took care of me from start to finish today and were incredibly warm and kind. The dentist visit can always be a little scary but they put me right at ease and got me taken care of. First time here and now I am a member; I’ve definitely found my primary dentist in Raleigh. Big thanks to everyone here!

AJ V. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Let me start with this…I hate going to the dentist. Like for real. When I found out that my dental insurance was running out because I was leaving my job my wife and I called and tried to get a last minute appointment. The people at Downtown Dental did everything they could to get my wife and I in that day. They were really great about telling us what they were going to do, which for my wife wasn’t a big deal, but for me I needed as much encouragement as possible. And when I had to go back to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed a couple days later they were super helpful even though I was terrified of getting all that work done. The doctors, the nurses, even the receptionist…all of them were really kind, very reassuring, walking me through everything step by step. They were really accommodating and encouraging. Even if you hate going to the dentist like I do, go here and let them take care of you.

I legitimately created a yelp account for the sole purpose of giving this office the review it deserves. I have had cleanings and two fillings done at downtown dental and I can honestly say it’s the best dentist experience i’ve ever had. 100% efficient, painless, friendly, and fast. I recommend Downtown Dental to everyone!

Emily Laurence (Source: Facebook)


I went to Downtown Dental today for the first time and had a great appointment. Everyone who works there is kind and also took the time to explain everything that went on during my appointment. I will definitely keep coming here from now on.

Love this place! I just finished up my second visit with this practice and will be returning again today for a cleaning. I’ve been very happy with the service during each visit. The staff is great – knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and courteous. The dentist was great as well – great “chair side” manner yet informative and efficient in getting the work done (cause no one likes sitting in a dental chair)!

Jamie Brown (Source: Google)


Can not recommend Downtown Dental enough! Super friendly, quick and precise. I went in to get a filling fixed and told the dentist and hygienist that I get queasy with needles and they completely distracted me so I didn’t even notice/ freak out. They also will put on Netflix and a show or your choice during your procedures so you’re relaxed and at ease. Definitely helped me calm down. My dentist also talked me through what he was doing as he was doing it which was helpful! 10/10 would recommend.

Moved down to Raleigh seven months ago and needed a dentist right away. I was really fortunate that I found the folks at Downtown Dental right near my office. Great, personable staff, and excellent care. The office is modern and spotless, and everyone I’ve encountered has been professional, and given the best care I could ask for. Thanks Downtown Dental!

I heard about it from a coupon in the mail I got from them. It was closer to my new place and wasn’t really married to my other dentist. Figured I would give them a try. Really did a stand up job! The staff was courteous and friendly, but in a grounded way. Didn’t come across as fake. They were thorough with making sure they got everything they needed with my teeth to ensure long term success. They hygienist was informative, personable, and easy going. As was the dentist himself. He was efficient, friendly, and used our time together to focus on what was really important and not just finding things to find things like some of my other dentists have done. It was a very good experience and the location of it being downtown with them paying for your parking was great, as well. I’ll definitely be returning and naming them as my new permanent dentist.

Downtown Dental and the staff downtown are wonderful! I saw Ashley again today. No matter how much time passes, she greets me like we just spoke last week. Her bed side manner is fantastic and even though I probably should, I never feel bad for my dental hygiene. Thanks again for all you do!!

I am so grateful for Dr. Wells and this practice that I almost don’t know what to say. Not only did Morgan fit me in last second, they were so kind and calming that I wasn’t terrified! Dr. Wells understood my situation needed immediate attention and had me numbed, relaxed and two wisdom teeth extracted in about 20 minutes. I have intense fear of needles and pain, but let me tell you, Dr. Wells talked me through it all and this wuss managed to stay awake for an impacted tooth. They are all absolute Angels!

I hadn’t been to the dentist in a really long time and have always been so nervous! Everyone on the whole staff has been amazing and helpful and genuinely want to help me get back on the right track with my teeth!!! Dr. Wells was so nice and made me feel comfortabl about everything, Dr. Steddum did a deep cleaning and again made me feel so comfortable. Finally, the women at the front desk were so helpful and answerred all of my questions! Highly recommend!!!!!
