Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Stephen H. from Brentwood, Brentwood, NC (Source: Yelp)


Great experience from start to finish as I was a new patient. Easy process to fill out forms before appointment online, which made check-in easy. Justine helped explain the steps to cleaning and X-rays for evaluation for potential issues with teeth and gums. My teeth looked great after she was done and experienced no pain or discomfort. Took the time to answer all my questions and very pleased with my experience. Look forward to going there for future and would recommend them to my friends and family.

My wife and I came to Dr. Patel from the outstanding online reviews. As new patients, the reviews lived up to our experience. The office is friendly, clean and well-run. Jennifer was very helpful in onboarding us with the practice. Candice was our hygienist and she was wonderful. For both of us, she was accommodating to certain needs we had to feel comfortable during the cleanings. Dr. Patel’s examination was very thorough and his approach to advising patients is very calm. He explains well – separating what’s important to take care of vs what can wait as he keeps an eye on it. It was a stress-free experience and I’m confident our teeth are in good hands with Dr. Patel.

Love Dr. Patel and his team. From my very first appointment I felt like I had been going for years and felt confident in the quality of treatment I was receiving. The office is clean and bright and they use modern fun technology. They are sure to explain everything in detail to ensure you are taken care of and know all your options. Dr. Patel recently fixed an old veneer for me in preparation for my wedding photos and the process was a breeze from whitening, temporary placement and final placement. They worked with my schedule to ensure it was done on time and looked better than before! I can’t recommend Dr. Patel and the rest of the Falls Lake Dental team enough!

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


This is the only dentist I’ve ever known that did his own cleanings, and it’s not because it’s some kind of low-rent outfit! The office is super clean and nicely/professionally designed, the staff is extremely courteous, and the location is very easy to get into and out of. Dr. Patel is kind, knowledgeable and as “gentle” as I’ve encountered. I’ve normally averaged 2-3 uncontrollable groans/moans per cleaning but with Dr. Patel I’m only mildly uncomfortable…and then he even stopped and asked, “Are you ok?” a couple of times (I’m a difficult patient). I really liked the fact that they emailed a couple of weeks before my appointment to remind me and then texted/emailed again a few days before to confirm the appointment. The one time I had to reschedule, and it was very last minute, they were extremely accommodating and flexible. Honestly, I picked Dr. Patel because he had the most positive reviews in the 5 mile radius of my apartment but now I would drive across town to use him. Full Disclosure: I’ve not had any “major” work done but the one filling I had was amazingly painless (as far as getting jabbed in the face with a needle and then being drilled in the head goes) compared to the other two that I’ve had, and I lost the least amount of blood per cleaning compared to any other dentist I’ve used. If you have to go to the dentist (I’m told we all do), I highly recommend Dr. Patel and his staff!

Great people! Friendly and skillful. Everything about the practice is state of the art, but it’s their warmth and compassion (I’m a person who HATES going to the dentist) that makes me glad I decided to take the chance and try them two years ago. Highly recommended. I referred my brother who recently moved here and his experience was also A+.

Kate Q. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I took advantage of a Groupon offer and was pleasantly surprised with my experience. Dr. Patel performed both the exam and the cleaning and spent a generous amount of time showing and discussing with me the issues he had discovered. Afterwards he reinforced his concerns by reviewing the pictures he took during the exam. When I returned for my follow-up appointment Dr. Patel put me at ease while he filled two cavities. He and his team, Bonnie and Trudy, were professional, friendly and intent on making me feel comfortable. The office is a bright, beautifully decorated, clean and relaxed environment and Dr. Patel uses state of the art technology to deliver superior service and informative consultation to his patients at competitive prices.

Arch B. from Apex, NC (Source: Yelp)


I look forward to my dental appointments and visits to Falls Lake Dental. I find Dr. Patel and staff to be very friendly, polite and caring. They take the time to talk to me about any concerns or questions I may have and put me to ease. I never feel rushed. The procedures are handled with utmost care and Dr. Patel has excellent workmanship. He always goes the extra mile to make sure that I am comfortable through the procedure. It is very difficult to find a practice where the doctor takes such a personal interest in the patient’s well being. I am very thankful to have found this practice and recommend it very highly to all my friends.

I had one of my front crowns snap off Friday night. I called Dr. Patel’s office and he got right back in touch with me. I went to the office on Monday and he clearly explained what had to be done. The wind up is I think my teeth, even with temporary crowns, is looking better than it ever did. Dr. Patel is the best.

I just started going to Falls Lake Dental after having a less than stellar experience with another dentist in the area. Dr. Patel is very compassionate about his patients. He talks you through every step of the way and gives his recommendations while working with you to come up with a plan of action. He is not one to force something on you and disregard the costs or implications. I am very pleased and have recommended this office to family members.

Kris S. from Sparks, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and his staff are amazing people. Not only are they an AMAZING dental practice, but they are great friends too. They are all so friendly and personable. Falls Lake Dental is a class act practice and I would recommend them to everyone (which I do). Thank you for being AMAZING.

Jean S. from Savannah, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Patel is an excellent dentist. I have been seeing him for a couple of years and appreciated his many innovations to make those dreaded dentist appointments less painful. At his suggestion I recently got six crowns on my front teeth, after numerous problems and lots of patching. It was traumatic of course, but he worked quickly and has a light touch, very helpful in dentistry. He also has empathy and was attentive to how I was feeling as the work progressed. Ii watched a Netflix show on the ceiling TV, a great distraction. The crowns are now in my mouth and he did a wonderful job fitting them. They feel great, like my own teeth only better. They are natural looking. My smile is much improved! I am very pleased with the results and recommend Dr Patel highly.

Falls lake dental changed my life. Dr. Patel, Ashton, and the whole staff are friendly, fun, and professional. The work they did on my teeth brought my confidence through the roof. I’d recommend them 10/10 times to anyone who needs dental or periodontic work. I’ll never go to another dentist. Thank y’all so much.

Kim C. from Cary, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and his staff are really great. They explain in detail any issues they see, offer you options and have a great chair-side manner! The office itself is state of the art. I watched HGTV while getting my teeth cleaned! I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking a new dentist.

Kathlyn C. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy that I found this practice on Yelp. I was very impressed with the quickness of their response time regarding my inquiry and my office visit was nothing short of AMAZING! Dr. Patel and his staff are all very knowledgeable, thorough in their examinations and explanations of their findings, and are all super helpful. Their office is conveniently located on Falls of Neuse and is very clean inside. Most importantly, everyone there is so friendly and made me feel at ease and very welcome! If you are looking for a new dental practice, look no further! Falls Lake Dental is the best!

Jaclyn D. from North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I just moved to Raleigh from another state and have been searching for a new dentist. If you’re in the neighborhood for a new dentist, look no further. Everyone in the Falls Lake Dentist office is warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in. They take time to get to know you and what your concerns might be. After your x-rays, they explain what you’re looking at and the best course of action. Also, there’s a tv above the chair so you can watch Netflix during your cleaning. I mean, cmon. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!

Allen S. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Found this dentist after reading reviews here on Yelp. They had good reviews, a $100 new patient special, and were close to my home. I liked that I was able to get an appointment as quick as I wanted(couple of days out), they were able to forward forms to complete in advance, and they had a multipoint appt. reminder system. When I arrived I didn’t wait long in the lobby…something like five minutes. There is coffee and water available in the lobby. As mentioned in another review Dr. Patel actually does the cleaning. I liked there is a monitor that can show pictures of my teeth and any issues. This is different than the xrays. Rather it’s a color photo of the tooth. My old dentist didn’t have this tool. I also went back for a follow up to have some cavities filled and my experience was positive then too. Well, as positive as that can be.

Dr. Jeffrey R. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel is one of the best dentist my family has used.  He took care of my wife, both kids, and myself.  His office was very impressive, modern and had state of the art equipment.  I found him to be friendly, personable, and very good at what he does.  I would recommend his office and his services to everyone.  This is definitely a 5 star office.

Erica Baldwin (Source: Google)


Falls Lake Dental has great availability for convenient appointments. Dr. Patel is thorough in his treatment, but not pushy on timelines when suggesting further treatment. Jennifer and the staff are friendly as soon as you walk in the door. I found Falls Lake Dental several years ago because I had a dental emergency, but I stayed because of the quality care and service. Plus, the cleanliness and technology is great. Watching the TV mounted on the ceiling during an appointment? Yes, please!

I would highly recommend Falls Lake Dental. Dr. Patel and his Staff are outstandingly amazing.. It is nothing but kind, professional service. They also helped me maximize my insurance for the rest of the year making sure that we take care of what needs work now the precision at which Dr. PATEL AND HYGIENIST work IS ALWAYS A PLUS. Easy to set up an appointment. The staff is really on top of recent pandemic cleaning requirement. When I am first on that “dreaded chair”. Later relaxed on looking at colorful TV at the celling. Without any pain that is common during any procedure. The staff is super friendly, the front desk is beyond helpful and kind, I dislike going to the any dentist office, but after I am done with all work done I leave with a big smile. Best dental experience I am having in my over five years. Highly recommend .highly

C B. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


My consultation was great but when I went for my second visit I was equally surprised that it went so well. Everyone in the office was so kind, so caring and so professional. Dr. Patel is the best dentist I’ve ever seen. He is compassionate, empathetic and honest. I no longer fear going to the dentist thanks to this very special group. Thank you all for your exemplary work and your extraordinary humanity.

James C. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel is awesome. He seems to be honest & professional. The office is very clean & location is very prominent. When I went there I was greeted immediately & called upon quickly. Dr Patel examination of my teeth & gums were very thorough, his work is very good. He is also running a special for free teeth whitening for life. I highly recommend this place!

Jamel C. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Patel for a dental cleaning. The office was clean and his staff was friendly yet professional. He had state of the art equipment where I could look at the x rays of my teeth immediately after they were taken. Dr Patel explained in terms I could understand what the X rays meant. I selected Dr. Patel for three reasons: The reviews I read about him were all positive; the location of his office was not far from where I worked, and the convenient hours. There are not many dentists that are open on Fridays and Saturdays. I recommend Dr Patel to anyone looking for a good dentist.

I have had great experiences with my dental work at Falls Lake Dental. The entire staff is super friendly and really care for you during the entire procedure. Dr. Patel does a great job and really makes you feel comfortable during the procedure . He always checks to see how you are feeling during the process which really makes me feel calm.

James Hutson (Source: Google)


I was really impressed with the dental care I received from this office. They called me back right on time. They explained things to me and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I appreciated being more involved in the process by seeing my teeth up close via their modern technology. Great staff. Great doctor. Great value. Make an appt!

Selvaraj K. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


After I came from California I was looking for good dentist for my family. Dr Chintan Patel is a good choice for me and my family. I recommended all of my friends and all are appreciated his work. He is totally take your dental care and you need not to worry at all! My kids are enjoying visiting Dr office as they are so comfortable. I highly recommend him.

Robyn K. from Cary, NC (Source: Yelp)


This office is not only beautiful, but Dr. Patel makes you feel so comfortable and welcomed when you come in for an appointment.  I am usually nervous when I go to the dentist, but i felt at ease in this office.  He was available for me to ask questions to, which you rarely find in a doctors office today. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to my friends and family.

Bonnie B. from Franklinton, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel treated me great during my visit there. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a dentist to give him a try. You will like him and his wonderful staff. Everyone seemed very knowledgeable and were wiling to answer all my questions. The office was very modern and seemed to have all the bells and whistles. I have sent my entire family to him.

Brandi H. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I am new to the Raleigh area (with no dental insurance) and was attracted to the $100 X-ray and cleaning special. There normal prices are very good also. I was shocked at how inviting the office was. Everything was sparkling clean and very up to date technology. Dr. Patel is very gentle and informing while cleaning and yes the actual dentist does the cleaning!  Dr. Patel is funny and makes sure you are comfortable and feeling no pain during the procedure you. After having a cavity filled, he called me a couple hours later to follow up and make sure everything felt okay. This is now my dentist office for regular cleaning and maybe even a whitening in the future.

I was in need of a dentist since I had moved to Raleigh. I actually got a flyer in the mail, checked their reviews and also their location. Less than 5 minutes from my home and were taking new patients. It was very easy to schedule. Once i arrived, they didn’t need much from me at all and i didn’t wait long. I was taken care of by Brenda and Dr Patel (i think these are the correct names). They were SO friendly, SO knowledgeable, SO efficient. The technology was very cool. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist.

For over two years Falls Lake Dental has provided me superior dental care. From the moment I arrive and receive that friendly greeting through the super great dental work provided by Dr. Patel and his entire staff, I know I have chosen the BEST for my needs. Thanks so much to the entire Falls Lake Dental staff. Ed Olson

Wynne K. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Another great appointment with Dr. Patel and his staff! Looking for a dentist? Dr. Patel is awesome!! I’ve been a patient at Falls Lake Dental for over 4 years. Here are the main reasons I love this dentist: 1. Dr. Patel is an honest dentist. He is up on the latest in dentistry & he uses modern equipment in a very nice, relaxing office. He will not do work that you do not need! He will tell you what is best if you have a minor issue & that might mean doing nothing – he is not pushy at all! Very open and honest! 2. Dr. Patel is a kind person. He is friendly and easy to talk to and he explains everything in an easy to understand manner. He is kind to his staff and you can sense the positive atmosphere as soon as you walk in. 3. Dr. Patel has very reasonable, fair prices. His goal is to be a great dentist and he is! 4. Falls Lake Dental offers flexible hours and now has a new location in Cary, Weston Dental I think. 5. You won’t be disappointed!!!

David S. from Ladson, SC (Source: Yelp)


Falls Lake Dental is truly a great office. With modern technology they are able to get a much better picture of the work needed to be done. I also found they offer many plans to assist those without dental insurance. I do recommend their savings/discount service which is a monthly fee, but can not recommend Care Credit which I looked into upon a suggestion from office staff. The 4 times I’ve been here now I’ve had a first exam, two deep cleanings, and a filling fixed. Each time was very professionally taken care of and everything was explained before started so there was no sticker shock on prices.

Winsome O. from Syracuse, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and his staff are knowledgeable, professional, and absolutely wonderful. As a person who has, for years, experienced anxiety when faced with trips to the dentist, I am delighted to have found this practice. Not only is Dr. Patel personable and likable, he very clearly explains his recommendations and uses up-to-date x-ray and photo technology to show his patients what he sees during his thorough examination.

Chris Thompson (Source: Google)


Dr. Patel and his staff have taken excellent care of me. After coming from another dentist, seeing the professionalism and care displayed by the staff, on my first visit, was refreshing. Dr Patel even came in after hours to take care of an emergency for me. My family and I have been patients for a couple years now. Everyone there knows my name and treats me like a friend rather than just a patient. I highly recommend them their services. They are outstanding.

Cherelle J. from Durham, NC (Source: Yelp)


If you are in need of a dentitist… look no further.  Just left and once again had an amazing cleaning.  Recently picked up coffee and had a few stains.  They are gone and received recommendations on how to keep them at bay! The practice is growing each time I visit.  Dr. Patel is the best and they only use the latest in dentistry technology.
