Dr. Richard Hunt and dental hygienist Michele are exemplary professionals who are absolutely committed to exceptional patient care.  Invariably kind, gentle, and caring, their work is always of the highest quality.  Each and every interaction I have with them confirms that this practice continually strives for excellence in all they do.  My highest recommendation.

I’ve been a client of Hunt & Hunt for over 20 years. I always receive exceptional service when I visit – from the doctors and all other team members in the office. I have and continue to recommend friends to them and they all receive the same great customer service when they visit. They have always made themselves available around the clock for emergencies. Additionally, they always follow-up with me to check-in after major procedures. I am thankful to be a client of Hunt & Hunt Dentistry – from my first visit to now, they have always made me feel like part of the family.

I have been going Dr. Hunt for over ten years now. He and his staff are top notch. I had to get a crown on my initial visit and have had great service ever since that was done in 2009. Everyone is extremely nice and courteous and they work around my schedule, as I am a professional truck driver and sometimes have to reschedule.

I have seen both Dr Hunt’s and they are both wonderful!  They have been our family dentist for the past 9 years without any complaints. From the front desk reception to check out everyone is friendly and helpful. Going to the dentist isn’t always the fun place to be, but when you need great dental work done by great professionals; this is the place to go!

Dr. Richard Hunt, Amber, Jenny, Sharon and all the staff are great. They go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable during the entire procedure. They take the time to explain everything they are doing. It has been an exceptional experience to have them as my dental team. I am so fortunate that I chose them. I highly recommend them for all your dental needs.

Just before Christmas 2018 I had a dental emergency. Dr. Hunt was so responsive in getting the needed medication, meeting me at his office on Sunday evening and following up with me throughout the Christmas holiday. Thanks to Dr. Hunt I was able to enjoy Christmas with my family pain free! You will not find a more friendly, professional dentist in our area.

Dr. Hunt and her staff is AMAZING! The atmosphere is very welcoming as soon as you walk through the door. Dr. Hunt made sure to devote an hour and thirty minutes to me without distractions! I’ve never been anywhere that does that. She truly believes in quality not quantity! She took her time and described what she was doing and when she was going to do it. Even during these trying times, they made sure to keep me safe and everyone else. An air purifier is in every room!! This place is the place to be!!!

M. Woods: Since i don’t type anymore, Dr. Richard Hunt was kind enough to assist me in typing this referral……. I have only seen Richard Hunt once and he is great eye-candy! I see Amy Hunt every three months and will continue to see her until either I pass or she retires no matter where I live. Seldom do I recommend anyone, but Amy is the best there is. Had she been my dentist in my early years, I wouldn’t have the fear that I came to her with. She has made my dental appointments absolutely enjoyable! Although I am her biggest baby, she has the patience of JOB! Once you visit Amy, you will be back! Response: Max, thank you so much! You know how to make Dr. Richard blush! It takes great courage to return to the dentist after having bad experiences in the past, and we would like to thank you for trusting us with taking care of your oral health needs. We agree that Dr. Amy possesses the perfect temperament for this profession, and we want you to know that she plans on continually providing top-notch care for you. Thanks again, Max! Look forward to seeing you soon!

I had a feeling a couple of months ago that I never imagined I would ever have. I couldn’t wait to go back to the dentist! WHAT !?!?! Dr Hunt did such a great evaluation of my mouth and was so gentle that I couldn’t wait for him to do more work. I had a couple of old fillings replaced and could not believe how gentle he was. Now… no one likes the drill, but he didn’t bang against my lip or other teeth. He did the work quickly and for the first time in my life, the dentist was no big deal. My daughter and son went to them and had work done. I expected them to come out exhausted and in pain, but they were relaxed and fine to go back for more if they need it. If you need a dentist, you have to use Hunt and Hunt. They really are the best dentists I have ever experienced!

I was very impressed by my experience! The office is beautiful with a comfortable waiting room and welcoming staff who makes you feel right at home. Most importantly, i felt I was given an honest review of my x rays with every option discussed thoroughly and all of my questions answered. I left feeling fully informed and impressed by the time Amy Hunt and her assistant took to make sure of that. I highly recommend Hunt & Hunt Dentistry!

Hunt and Hunt Dentistry is the best Dental practice in all of Rocky Mount and the surrounding area. The staff is well qualified and friendly, they are always willing to go the extra mile. When I am in their hands I know that I will get excellent care. There is no other Dental practice for me. I love Hunt and Hunt Dentistry and I would recommend it to everyone, they really do treat you like family. Thanks Dr. Hunt and Staff. Doris Ragsdale

There are not enough good things to say about Dr. Richard Hunt and his staff! At the age of 36, I can honestly say that my experiences with dentistry have been negative before walking into his office. Because of Dr. Hunt and his staff, my views have completely changed. I now have an understanding of the importance of being proactive about your dental health. Dr. Hunt took a holistic approach when assessing my dental health. He studied my dental history, investigated current issues within my mouth, and then discussed the potential problems that could arise in the future with me. He mapped out an individualized plan if how we would work together to get my mouth to a healthy and maintainable place. The office is made up of a friendly staff that know you on a first name basis as soon as you walk in the door-they ask about your loved ones, your health, and are always offering up ways to make you more comfortable. I am very grateful for the recommendation to see Dr. Hunt and have now trusted him with the dental health of my two young children and husband!

Always being nervous of a dentist visit I have to say I am no longer with the awesome staff here. Very welcoming, and professional. Working step by step they explain everything and are very caring. Visited today with another great experience during this Covid 19 time we are all going through, they are taking extra steps with care and concern of the patients and themselves as a staff. I highly recommend Hunt & Hunt Dentistry.

I have been a patient with the Hunt’s for many years. They have always taken excellent care of me. I’ve had quite a bit of work done over the years including braces and crowns. While they are not orthodontists, they did advise me for all of the decisions that needed to be made along the way. I am very pleased with the outcome. They are constantly upgrading their equipment and utilizing the latest technology available which makes the patient experience better.

Got an appt for May 14 to clean my teeth. First week Drs. Hunt are open since the Stay at Home order back in March. Didn’t know what to expect but they were awesome. Pre screening for symptoms, temp check was done before you even got in the door. Felt very safe and comfortable. Michele was my Hygienist and Dr Amy did my final check. As an added precaution they are wearing face shields. Any anxieties I had were erased by this experience. Way to go Dr Richard, Amy and my Hygienist Michele!

Everyone here is great! I have had been going here to have my teeth cleaned for the past 10 years now and have known Dr. Amy and Dr. Richard for over 20 years. This is the best dental practice in town. They are professional, caring, great with all ages, and very knowledgeable on all things “teeth”. Their office is always clean and it is well decorated too. I’m meeting with Dr. Lestini in a few days to talk about Invisalign braces and am very excited! Highly recommend to anyone moving to town or just looking for a new dentist!

I recommend Hunt & Hunt to everyone I know. When I first moved to Rocky Mount I had a bad experience with a different dental office, and figured all of other dentists in the area would be the same. But when I had a dental emergency I needed to find someone fast. Hunt and Hunt was recommended to me and I wished I knew about them sooner. When I first walked in I was greeted with a smile and they called me by name before I even made it up to the counter to check in. The waiting room is inviting with family photos, and when you walk back you see professional photos of actual patients with a quote. I have been with them now for three years and have not had a bad experience. I can’t say enough good things about Hunt & Hunt.

As the type of person who had let life and a sense of anxiousness impact me getting regular dental care, I was hesitant to even set up an appointment with a dentist. I was pleasantly surprised, relieved, and comforted that all of the staff at Hunt & Hunt, from the front desk staff to Dr. Hunt himself, were compassionate, knowledgeable, patient, and welcoming! If you are reading these reviews and debating if you want to make an appointment: go for it… I certainly am glad that I did!

Matt Korff (Source: Google)


I put off finding a new dentist for 4 years and decided to go with Hunt & Hunt based off of positive reviews. Even with such great reviews, they FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. The level of service and attention to detail was unlike anything I’ve ever seen with a dentist. They will make you feel comfortable, give you a detailed explanation on the processes, give you a tour, and make you feel at home. I was set up with Dr. Richard and his dental assistant Amber and they were great. Unfortunately I did have a slight issue with a small cavity that they were able to fit me in within a couple days. Surely they may not always be able to work that fast, but you feel a genuine care that they want your business and want to help you. I encourage you to call one of their Practice Care Coordinators, Faith or Jaime, to set up an appointment ASAP!

Drs. Hunt and their staff are always professional and compassionate each time we visit. I hated going to the dentist before but now they have made alieveated my fears by thoroughly explaining every detail and including me in the decision of my care. I highly recommend them and have been their patient for over 17 years now. Thank you.

It’s simple, these are the absolute best dentists east of Hawaii! The staff are friendly and congenital. They all are understanding of your fears and anxieties. They work as a team so you get a second opinion on premises. I love them all and would highly recommend Hunt and Hunt to everyone. Please do yourself a favor and try them. I personally guarantee you’ll be more than satisfied.

I have been a patient of the Hunts since I was about 2 years old and highly recommend them! Dr. Richard, Dr. Amy and their staff are very welcoming, professional and knowledgeable. The office is run very efficiently and is always clean. Michele is a wonderful hygienist and does a great job of cleaning my teeth!

Jimmillia Rodgers (Source: Google)


I recommend this dentist office to ANYONE! The dentist, assistants & even the front desk receptionist are all wonderful. They give you a warm welcome which makes you more comfortable …they are patient with you & they are very gentle & informative with every step they take while examining or cleaning your teeth. When I first arrived I wasn’t as confident about my smile but now I am more than confident with smiling, I smile for no reason & thanks to Dr. Hunt I will keep right on smiling comfortably! If you are thinking of joining this dentistry… Go right ahead, You are making one of the best choices you’ve made all year!

Excellent and knowledgeable dentistry. The atmosphere is always friendly. Dr. Richard Hunt is expert, thorough, professional and puts you completely at ease. Jennifer, who cleans my teeth, does an excellent and thorough job, and never causes me any discomfort. I have been going to Hunt and Hunt for about 18 years and will never even think about going to any other office for my dental care.

Bob Cotter (Source: Google)


We’re new to the area, so I was searching for a new dentist when I spotted Hunt & Hunt Dentistry on the web. I was impressed that Dr. Richard is a third generation dentist. Turns out I made a great choice. Hunt & Hunt are the best dentists I have ever experienced in my 60 + years of going to dentists. Every step is explained beforehand, so you know what to expect. I had a procedure by Dr. Amy that took two and a half hours, and I was not uncomfortable for a second. Support staff is also top notch, friendly and professional.

It’s always a great experience when my daughter and I go to our dental appointments. We just had our cleanings last week and they took great precautions for cleanliness and social distancing. We were never worried, felt completely safe, and were always treated carefully. They confirm your appointment and also confirm that you haven’t been around anyone with the virus, and other questions to ensure you can safely make your appointment. When you arrive, you pull into a parking spot. Each one is numbered and has a sign with their number to call when you get there. Someone comes out and takes your temperature and walks you in. The waiting room is empty and there are very limited staff and clients. They sanitize everything after it touches you and they wear gloves (changed repeatedly) as well as masks and face shields. My daughter and I had cleanings a few days apart and the protocol was the same each time. This, on top of their wonderful friendliness and great dental care, is why we will always choose Hunt & Hunt for our dental care.

The visit was just awesome! Loved the environment and the warm welcome I received from the whole team of Dr Hunt. I just felt cared for them as a person and not only as someone that came to have a teeth treatment. Special compliments for the assistant Amber that was very kind, attentive and helpful! Dr. Hunt did such a great job!

I was nervous to even think of visiting a dentist. After my Visit too Hunt & Hunt my nervousness has completely changed. Staff makes you feel completely comfortable. I have never had a dentist to pull up a chair and explain to me in detail and show me what the problem is. They never appear rushed and give you the time you need to make you as a patient feel you are important. I highly recommend Hunt & Hunt.

If you are looking for a dentist, I highly recommend this practice. I have been a patient of Hunt & Hunt Dentistry for over 30 years. When you walk in the door, you are met with a smile and their friendly staff make you feel right at home. Dr. Richard and Dr. Amy are wonderful at what they do – very professional in their dental care but always make you feel so comfortable. My hygienist Michelle is great -gentle but thorough cleaning. These folks are the BEST!

Lindy Kitchin (Source: Google)


Hunt & Hunt Dentistry has been my dental provider for a little over a year. I have received exceptional customer service and individualized care. The staff is kind, caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Hunt provided me with a thorough dental exam and developed a long term treatment plan to meet my health needs. The atmosphere is clean, organized and welcoming. I am so glad my friends recommend Hunt & Hunt Dentistry.

Frank Jolley (Source: Google)


Hunt & Hunt have the best dental practice in Rocky Mount and probably eastern NC. Drs. Richard and Amy and their dental hygienist staff are both knowledgeable and friendly. I’ve been a long time patient and would highly recommend the practice to anyone in the area. Hunt & Hunt are on top of all new dental trends and are constantly attending continuing education events to stay on top of this.

My good friend Sharon Drake referred our family to The Hunts 10 years ago. Going to the dentist used to be a very dreaded experience for me; now I actually look forward to going. From the warm greetings from Kim and Sharon when you enter, to the politeness, graciousness and professionalism of each staff member you encounter, it is truly a pleasurable experience. I cannot say enough about Michelle and Dr. Richard, from my first visit years ago, their demeanor immediately put me at ease. They have absolutely enabled me to conquer my fear of going to the dentist by showing me incredible kindness, warmth and patience. If you “click” with a particular hygienist or dentist, they note it in your chart, and schedule you with them with each future visit. No matter the distance, a trip to Hunt & Hunt Denistry is worth the drive.

Truly exceptional dental care! Drs. Hunt and the entire staff are the ultimate professionals. Their knowledge and genuine concern for your dental health are unsurpassed by others. They exude warmth and compassion as well, and that has made all the difference for me. I highly recommend this practice for anyone. My family is so glad to have found them!

It’s rare to see professionalism on the level of Drs. Hunt & Hunt. I needed major work done consisting mainly of removing the “old” and replacing with “new”. After careful consideration of my needs, Dr. Richard Hunt far exceeded my expectations with the finished product ! His staff is the cream of the crop and they work with Dr. Hunt like a high functioning well-oiled machine! I am so impressed and we are so fortunate to have this team in Rocky Mount, NC ! All dentists, new and old, could and should learn from Drs. Hunt & Hunt !
