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

Mitzi M. from Steele Creek, Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I chose this place because it has the highest ratings on Google. I was very iffy on going to a dentist because a previous dentist messed up my fill in, so I didn’t want someone to mess it up more. I went in and had the most lovely experience that I possibly can have at a dental place. Everyone is so nice and respectful, which makes everything breezy. Ashley did my cleaning and was so nice. It was quick, painless, and efficient throughout the whole process. Dr. Dan is so proficient in all his work. He fixed my fill in and now I CAN CHEW ON MY LEFT SIDE! I recommended my boyfriend to go and he loved it. I will continue to recommend people.

Dr Dan and the entire staff are amazing! The facility is super clean and high tech. They answered all of my questions, addressed all of my concerns, and made sure I was comfortable. As a new patient, he also wanted to know about me as a person instead of just as a patient. I had to get a couple fillings as well and before the procedure the staff made sure I was as comfortable as possible. They provided a blanket for me to feel comfortable and allowed me to select a show to watch on the ceiling TV (yes they have TVs on the ceiling) to keep my mind occupied and me at ease during a procedure that has given me a lot of anxiety in the past. They were quick, efficient, and caring always asking if I was okay or in any pain/discomfort. If that wasn’t enough Dr Dan himself called that night to make sure I was feeling okay after the procedure. They honestly go above and beyond for their patients and try to make going to the dentist as enjoyable as possible. I cannot recommend them enough!

While I do not know anyone who looks forward to dentist visits, this place has the right combination of technology, friendly faces, expertise and attention to detail that makes it all worth it.  Great experience from start to finish and I sincerely appreciated the time Dr. Dan and Jenn took to answer my questions regarding several options.  Taylor also happily answered a few follow up questions as I was leaving.  Great team of individuals here, keep up the amazing service!.

I haven’t been to the dentist in I couldn’t tell you how long…I had an awful experience at a previous office that made me never want to go back. Dr. Dan and his staff were the absolute sweetest and knowledgeable group of professionals I’ve ever met! They helped answer all of my questions and made sure I was comfortable. Thank you for a great experience! I can’t wait to continue to come back

Mike P. from North Tonawanda, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’m not much of a reviewer, but I felt compelled to share my experience. I went there for the first time today. It was for a routine cleaning appointment. Let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised from start to finish. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and they take the time to answer all of your questions too. The office is modern and so is all of their equipment. I mean you can just tell when you get there. What a standout! This was truly the best dental experience I’ve ever had.

I Love them so much …Everyone is nice and professional. They made me feel very comfortable and explained every step asking and answering all of my questions. They made sure that I wasn’t in any pain and made the process go smoothly. LOVE LOVE LOVE…Couldn’t imagine myself going somewhere else and I’m going back next week. Thank You Horizon Dental You made me smile again and I am forever grateful for your kindness and diligent work to take care of all of my needs.

I’ve been going to Horizons for over a year now and by far the best around. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Hostrander is awesome. I’ve been in Charlotte for 30+ years and have always dreaded going to a dentist to just realize I hated it there. Since day one, I’ve always been welcomed with friendly conversations and smiles. It’s like walking into a second family. I’ve never reviewed anything on Google but I felt like this place needs to be shared with others.

Great experience at Horizon Dental! Dr. Dan and staff are very kind and personable. Taylor is my hygienist and she is excellent. She was very caring and gentle during x-rays and cleaning procedure. She thoroughly explained my plan of care and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this office.

After being very hesitant, I brought my toddler for her very first visit. Couldn’t be more glad I did the right thing! She enjoyed her visit with them, and keeps getting excited whenever she hears the word “dentist”! It was a breeze with Dr. Dan and Ashley! So I had to come back this time for myself with a tooth problem and for cleaning too. My hygienist was Ashley and she was super friendly, patient and so good at her work! Later when Dr. Dan came in, and quickly he figured out my tooth problem and walked me through it on what could be done. I always had traumatized experiences at the dentist’s, but I’m looking forward to come back to Dr. Dan’s office in September! Everyone at the office is super nice and the place is filled with good vibes. If you’re wondering where to go, Horizon Dental is the way to go! 🙂

They did everything they could to make me feel comfortable even though I’m scared of the dentist myself. Also went beyond what they had to to help me with my payment process. I was so embarrassed and they didn’t make me feel like I had to be. Truly the best dentist I have ever been to.

I have always had a great experience with Horizon Dental. The staff are all very friendly and make you feel comfortable. The office is spotless and modern. Dr. Dan is great and communicates clearly what he’s doing, and makes the experience as enjoyable as going to the dentist can be!

It had been quite a long time since my last dental appointment so understandably I was very anxious about finally going to the dentist. From the very beginning everyone in the office was so friendly and made every effort to make sure I was comfortable. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Dr. Dan was very thorough and straightforward about our “gameplan”, and each part of my procedure/visit was explained and executed beautifully from check in to my hygienist treatment to check out. I never once felt anxious and can’t believe how much I’m actually looking forward to my next appointment. I can’t say enough good things about this team and that’s only after one visit!

We were looking for a new Dental group here in Charlotte and we found a GEM! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Taylor was my hygienist and Ashly was my wife’s hygienist and they both were fantastic. Taylor even played Beatles music for me while she cleaned my teeth. Dr Dan made me feel very comfortable and was very professional. I highly recommend Horizon Dental.

The best shot I’ve ever had. Dr. Hostrander nailed it with 3 back to back shots I had to have for a root canal / filling combo. I couldn’t feel it at all. I’ve had other shots that I couldn’t feel before but not as quick and accurate. The staff is very friendly and does a good job at making you feel as comfortable as possible with all the amenities not offered at other offices. Their schedule stays booked but it’s worth it if you can wait for a spot. Highly recommended.

I am super nervous about going to the dentist. Dr Hostrander and his staff really are great!!! Everyone is so kind and patient and tells you what is going on every step of they way. They don’t make you feel rushed or treat you like just another patient. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a skilled compassionate dentist

Donna Duerr (Source: Facebook)


I have had the best experience of having Dr Hostrander Take care of my dental needs. Not only have had the opportunity to work with him but know him personally. A Doctor with great skills , integrity and a chair side manner that stands above corporate dental offices. This is one dental office you will love ! DD of Charlotte

Absolutely love Dr. Dan and his kind, helpful, and genuine staff! They make every experience comfortable and take the time to walk you through each appointment procedure. They are always willing to answer any questions at any time. And were the most wonderful when I transitioned my 2 children into their office. (2 children that are very anxious about dentist visits. Thank you so much!!

My experience at Horizon Dental was very positive and enjoyable from walking in to a friendly, smiling receptionist to a most friendly and extremely capable hygienist who took the time to answer explicitly all questions I had about my procedure and to make sure I was comfortable throughout. She also engaged in candid conversation which helped me to feel at ease. After my procedure Dr. Dan asked if I had any concerns, and mentioned a possible problem that may need attention at some time. Unlike other experiences I’ve had I found Dr. Dan to be very personal, caring, low key non alarming, but very professional. All in all it was a pleasure to be a patient at Horizon Dental and I highly recommend Dr. Dan and his staff.

Jenifer O. from North Massapequa, NY (Source: Yelp)


If I could give 10 stars, I would. This place is amazing! Let’s start from the beginning, they are completely paperless and eco friendly by having new patients do paperwork on an iPad (way to go! It’s 2020, every business should follow suit). Ashley was my dental hygienist, she was sweet and gentle. She also took the time to explain everything she did prior to actually doing it, this alleviates any anxiety anyone may have at the dentist. Dr. Dan was thorough and extremely nice! All tech used was new and clean, also the room had 2 flat screen TVs for patients viewing pleasure. I could go on and on, but give this place a try. $99 for x-rays, cleaning, and exam. 100% worth it!

Brandi A. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Daniel is the best, hes very gentle; has the most up todate equipment: he doesn’t suggest work that isn’t necessary, will watch until it is, if it is. He avoids any pain even if u flinch, he will administer additional meds. His assistant is the best always positive and quite funny. First Time I actually enjoy going to the dentist (almost lol)

Susan Yanke (Source: Facebook)


This is the best Dental office ever. They are so caring, thoughtful and has an excellent staff. I was treated so great and had no pain with my 3 visits. I have recommended Horizon Dental to many people and to my family. They are always on time and Jennifer is awesome. I will never go anywhere else. Dr. Dan is such a great listener and his patience is super. The staff sends you reminders and updates and they are always there to answer any questions. I was able to get in right away too. Excellent service!!! Susan Y.

I started coming to Horizon Dental during the pandemic because it was closer to home and my husband had been going there for a while. They have truly superior service and I’m glad I was able to make the switch. The staff is knowledgable and welcoming and very accommodating when it comes to scheduling. I would recommend them. Views and opinions are mine alone.

Leslie Fulton (Source: Google)


The staff was polite and professional. The facility was modern , clean and latest technology.. TVs in rooms on wall and ceilings. They asked what I needed to make me feel comfortable ( music , blanket , particular tv channel) Dr Dan show a real interest in patient care. I would highly recommend this dentist

Christin B. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Today was my first time at this office. I don’t have insurance so I took up the $99 new patient special. I am so glad I did. I have never had a better doctor/dental experience than this. The office is so nice, the ENTIRE staff is so nice and knowledgeable. I will recommend everyone I know to this office. I can comfortably say this is the best office in Charlotte! Thanks so much!

Horizon dental is by far the best dentist practice I have EVER been to. I have lived in 5 states and have had close to double digit dentists in my life so that is saying a lot. Not only is the office nice and the tech state of the art, but Dr. Dan is one of those people who doesn’t think of himself as above anybody due to his credentials. He just comes in, treats you like an equal, does an amazing job, and is always extremely pleasant to be around. As for the rest of the staff, from the hygienists to the front office staff, I always find myself having very fun conversations with all of them. They truly are the nicest people as a collective group that you will come across anywhere in the medical field! My hygienist has recommended weekend getaway trips for me and my family that have been amazing! She is literally a ball of positive energy that you can’t help but enjoy being around. That old adage of, “I hate going to the dentist” just doesn’t fit with this bunch! To be honest, for the first time in my life I actually look forward to going to the dentist. They are also extremely flexible with scheduling. I had a client meeting on Friday during my scheduled appointment and called 25 minutes before my appointment and asked if I could come in the next business day. They literally replied, “Awesome! We’re excited to see you on Monday!” 10 out of 5 stars Eric Tipton

Nobody likes going to the Dentist…but, I truly enjoy my experiences with Dr. Dan and my Hygienist (Ashley) They take excellent care of me and I feel great about my teeth! The office is top notch and there’s a big screen you can watch during your time in the Chair! If you’re looking for a new Dentist…I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Dan & his professional and friendly staff!

Usually afraid of Dentists. My experience was the exact opposite. There is a reason why Horizon has such positive reviews. The Practice is modern with the most up to date equipment. More importantly, the Staff from the Receptionist to the Dental Assistant to the Hygenist to the Dentist were caring and efficient. Just moved and Horizon is my new Dental Practice.

Gilberlyna V. Delgado (Source: Google)


If there’s one thing I don’t regret about moving to Charlotte is this place, it has been the best dental experience I have ever had in my adult years. My kids enjoy going to them… even though they’re kids they have never complained or said they had an unpleasant visit. Service is great, fast and efficient! I love the team and their work ethic. The place itself is super clean and inviting. I feel like I’m home during every visit! I’m a very happy client and I enjoy smiling thanks to them!

Dr.Dan and the ENTIRE staff are AMAZING!!! I highly recommend becoming a patient here. Not only did they take great care of my sensitivity and thoroughly explained my treatment plan, but after I received treatment I received a “check-in” call from Dr.Dan making sure I was okay and to see if I had any questions!! Again, great service!!!

Charlena Thompson (Source: Google)


The entire staff is AMAZING! So humble, genuine, and have such caring spirits. I felt extremely comfortable and welcomed from the moment I walked through the door. The office is clean, technology and equipment is top notch, and I enjoyed being able to relax and watch television while having my procedure. I almost forgot that I was at a dentist office. Dr. Hostrander is extremely knowledgeable, detailed, patient, kind, and it is evident that he has a high level of concern for his patients. I appreciate Dr. Hostrander and his dental assistant who is also knowledgeable and passionate for taking the extra time with me today with an unexpected situation. I found my dental home.

Exceptional, Ashley my hygentes was knowledgeable, comforting, detail orientated and great demeanor, the dentist was engaging and we related having both spent time in the same great state of Kentucky, the practice even completed my additional service needed the same day, highly recommend Horizon Dental

My dentist in Charleston, SC recommend Dr. Dan Hostrander since I relocated to NC. I can’t say enough positive things about him and his staff. I don’t think I have met a kinder staff. Dr. Hostrander is just as amazing. His friendly demeanor made me feel comfortable while he explained everything he was going to do. I have an extreme fear of dental work -as do many- and his empathy towards that fear made me confident in his treatment plan. I received a follow up phone call from him personally which shows his genuine interest in me as a patient. Before I was out of the parking lot I had already given his information to 2 friends. Five Stars isn’t enough!

1st visit and I am very pleased to say that this is a very professional, efficient and well run practice. It has all the latest technology as well. The office is very updated, clean and comfortable. Additionally the staff is polite as well as being friendly, caring and thorough. The hygienist(Taylor) did an excellent job and I have to admit that the entire process was much easier and more comfortable than you would normally expect. Dr. Hostrander was excellent and took the time necessary to explain his findings and discussed a plan for treatment. I felt valued as a patient. I can’t begin to say just how pleased I am moving forward to have found this wonderful practice.

My whole family goes here. They are absolutely the best dentist office we’ve ever been to. They take the time to make sure you know what’s happening next and to make sure you’re comfortable. They are polite and friendly and thorough. I ABSOLUTELY recommend. I forgot to mention… Dr. Dan sent my 4 year old son a hand written card. It absolutely made his day. They truly care about their patients.


Dr. Dan’s childhood patient experience with his family dentist and orthodontist was less than ideal. After three different sets of braces (totalling six years of treatment) led to complications and necessary jaw surgery, Dr. Dan wanted to make sure that no patient had the same experience. ‍ He was inspired to become a dentist that would change the way people envisioned dental appointments. Dentistry shouldn’t be scary, and Dr. Dan combines skill, compassion, and humor to keep patients comfortable in his care. ‍ Dr. Dan graduated with Honors and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from UNC School of Dentistry. He is dedicated to providing a superior dental experience for his patients with a focus on relationship-based care. Dr. Dan is an active member of the ADA, the North Carolina Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry. If you’re looking for an experienced, friendly dentist in Charlotte, Dr. Dan and the entire team at Horizon Dental would love to meet you!
