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

During my first visit, the dental hygienist Jen was so incredibly outgoing and made me feel comfortable and welcome instantly. She was very knowledgeable and provided very good insight to all of the questions I had. Then I met Dr Michael, and was so thankful I found this dentist office. He was warm, caring, and he made it very clear that he was interested in providing the best care possible. I am so thankful I found Inspiring Smiles Denistry.

Let me start off by saying like many people, going to the dentist is one of my least favorite things to do. In fact, I would develop significant anxiety when going to the dentist. With that said, I no longer feel that way since finding Inspiring Smiles Dentistry. Dr. Gross and his entire staff are absolutely wonderful people, and extremely competent dental professionals. In my 60 years I have not found any better! I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for an honest, caring, and competent dental practice.

I was recommended to this office by another Co worker on Wednesday, Thursday morning I called. They got me in by Thursday at 2 by 5 I had a broken tooth repaired, two filling replaced and my teeth cleaned, did I say I was a brand new patient to them. Dr. Michael and his staff from the front to the back were the nicest I have ever seen for a dentist office. They took the fear of it all away. I HIGHLY recommend this team. Thanks again

S W. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr Michael and his staff (Misti at the front desk and Jen his AMAZING hygienist) are seriously amazing! I’ve had a lifelong fear and anxiety with dental visits after years of awful treatment. When I first came to Inspiring Smiles I was taking Xanax before each appointment and trying not to have a panic attack. But the entire staff have consistently been warm, welcoming, friendly, and have taken the time to explain things or take a break as I needed. They remember not just my teeth, but they ask about my fiancé and my job or our dogs. They genuinely care about their patients and after seeing them the last couple of years I am completely rid of any fear or anxiety around dental work. They are truly amazing and I strongly recommend them for anybody.

I am new to the area and chose Inspiring Smiles Dentistry based on their high ratings and was so glad I did. From the beginning it was a welcoming experience from the woman at the front desk who took my information. Then I had the most thorough cleaning and was confident in the hygienist’s and dentist’s skills. Everyone was very likeable and professional. I am so glad I found them and recommend them highly. I look forward to going back!

I have been living in Charlotte in 2011 and have been struggling finding a dentist that I trust and feel comfortable with. After asking around and doing frequent YELP searches I came across Inspiring Smiles Dentistry. I had the most wonderful experience with Dr. Michael and his staff. First off, the office is beautiful and very clean. The entire staff from the receptionist to the dental hygienists… They are all very lovely, sweet and kind. They all make you feel at home when you walk in the door. My dental hygienist was named Jen… She greeted me with a beautiful smile and was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. While she cleaned my teeth, she took an interest in me and we chatted about a variety of topics. For someone who is nervous about going to the dentist, I didn’t feel one ounce of pain or poking when she worked on me. She is a true professional! She put me at ease. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Michael… He is a really cool, down-to-earth guy and is a straight shooter… Which I really appreciate! If you are looking for a new dentist, I HIGHLY recommend visiting Inspiring Smiles Dentistry!!

The whole team at Inspiring Smiles is just Excellent! They are great at what they do. They are always friendly, caring, and easy to talk to. They make you feel comfortable, relaxed, kind of like family, and they are always willing and eager to help with any problems in any way that they can. I look forward to my visits. They are genuinely good, caring people.  Carol Grant

I left my other dentist because I lost trust in their intentions. I found Dr Michael Gross online and have been there 4 times . I find them very friendly and welcoming and their services have exceeded my expectations. They also take my insurance which helps a great deal and with their fair prices I don’t feel like I’m making a mortgage payment every time I go in. From the minute Misty greets you at the front desk to the moment the doctor completes my service , I feel welcomed and that I can trust in doctor Gross and his staff.

I have to be honest when it comes to the point of me going to the dentist I refuse. I am a wimp! I have to be in extreme pain to go to a dentist but I am so thankful I have found an amazing dentist! Dr. Michael Gross is the best. He explains everything in detailed and answers any questions you may have. His whole team is wonderful, friendly and I really recommend them!! This past Thursday I had my wisdom teeth removed and he did an amazing job. I barely felt a thing and I was not as swollen as I was scared I was going to be!! I can’t say am not nervous when it comes to going to the dentist but I know now am in good hands and I am very thankful!! Thank you Dr. Gross and team!!

I was impressed from beginning to end.  We have recently moved to Charlotte and needed to get in quick for a tooth issue.  They were great to work with from scheduling appointment through completing appointment.  Staff is great with kids and made mine feel really comfortable and at ease.  My kids and I have all scheduled appointments now because of how great the experience was with my daughter.

C C. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I love this place ! I’m a new patient and have only been in twice, but both appointments have been great. The office is beautiful, the views from the chairs overlooking park road are really cool. But the staff is the best part. They’re so welcoming, accommodating, friendly, and actually really great to talk to. I appreciated how helpful all of them were. I loved that every person I encountered from the front desk to the hygienist to the dentist all went out of their way to not only make me comfortable but also to educate me and let me know what they were doing and why they were doing it. Best doctor office visit I’ve ever had. Two thumbs up from me; I highly recommend !

Bernice Mar (Source: Google)


From my perspective as a new patient, everyone in the office is customer-focused and friendly. Each of my visits have been an excellent experience. Jen is very thorough, knowledgeable, and caring in her work. “Dr. Michael” is a compassionate and detailed-oriented dentist. He answers questions with patience; and is both practical and strategic in his dentistry. I only have good things to say about this office. You’ll be in good hands!

Brooke H. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I visited Inspiring Smiles and Dr. Michael for the first time this week. I’ve had some discoloration on my two front teeth for a while and was looking for a treatment plan. I had been to two other local Charlotte dentists who proposed pricey and unnecessary treatments. Within 10 minutes of meeting Dr. Michael he was ready to execute a quick remedy to fix my teeth. ALL OF THE DISCOLORATION ON MY FRONT TEETH IS GONE! Dr. Michael could have put me on an expensive treatment plan, but he gave me an honest and inexpensive option. You don’t come by honesty like that much these days! I have my smile back thanks to Dr. Michael and his staff. Everyone in his office is kind, genuine, and sincere. I felt very welcome! I would HIGHLY recommend Inspiring Smiles to everyone. Great experience from a staff who goes above and beyond for their clients!!

Kathleen G. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


The staff at Inspiring Smiles Dentistry are absolutely amazing! I’ve been a patient of Dr. Michael’s for 2.5+ years. Inspiring Smiles Dentistry offers several different services ranging from general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, periodontics, oral surgery, endodontics, whitening, bridges, implants and so much more. Dr. Michael and his staff are highly knowledgeable and super professional. Whenever I have questions or concerns they patiently explain to me next steps and what I can expect. Not only do they have excellent customer service and great bed side manner, but they actually care about their patients. Utilizing whitening, cosmetic and general dentistry services Dr. Michael has given me a beautiful smile that keeps on shining. I actually look forward to going to my 6 month cleanings. {Something I never thought I’d say about going to the dentist!}

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


I decided to visit this gem since it was in such close proximity to my work. It has a fantastic location. Making an appointment was very easy. The receptionist checked my insurance, and they do participate in most major plans. My hygienist, Jen was very personable and gentle. I got a great cleaning. Dr.Michael was very kind and has a great philosophy of treating patients like family. Also the facility is beautiful and feels very upscale. They have a killer pandora playlist to boot.

As soon as I stepped into this office, I felt instantly comfortable and at ease. Dr. Michael and Jen were so personable and welcoming-it is truly evident they care immensely about their patients and want to get to know them and educate them. Misty at the front desk helped navigate through all of my insurance information and was very helpful and patient with me! The entire experience was wonderful and I highly recommend!

Katy G. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Michael and the whole staff are very professional and friendly. The office is impressively clean and organized. I just had a cavity filled today and it was the best dental experience I’ve had. I appreciated that Dr. Michael explained all the steps he was doing and told me what to expect with each one. He was extremely gentle and checked in often to make sure I was comfortable. I didn’t feel a thing. I also appreciated that he was honest with me in regards to what dental work could wait and what dental work was more pressing. I will recommend this practice to everyone!

They were great to work with from scheduling appointment through completing appointment. Staff is great with kids and made mine feel really comfortable and at ease. My kids and I have all scheduled appointments now because of how great the experience was with my daughter.

Amy is AMAZING!!! We have lived in 4 different US states as well as a job assignment in Amsterdam, so I have seen a LOT of dentists. Her touch in cleaning my teeth was exceptional. She is the best hygienist I have ever had, and if you have any teeth/gum sensitivity issues, she would be a dream! Most hygienists are perfectly fine, so I had never experienced one so good I had to rave about her! I can’t explain it…she is just that good. Dr. Michael and the rest of the staff are also wonderful, and the space is modern, airy and beautiful. Bravo!

John G. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I have had many bad experiences in my lifetime with going to the dentist, but from the moment I walked in, I NEW this was the dentist office for me! I just felt comfortable from checking in to checking out! I felt the staff and Dr. were honest and not just trying to sell me something! We came up with an affordable plan and now moving forward. Thank you

Stacy R. from Mooresville, NC (Source: Yelp)


I had, regrettably, put off going to the dentist for several years due to my aversion to the dental experience.This is the best experience I have ever had with a dentist and dental office.  From my interactions with the front desk, to Jen the hygienist, and to Dr. Michael Gross himself my experience has been stellar. Having gums that have receded my dental cleanings were always painful and required local anesthesia. This was the first time I haven’t required local anesthesia for a deep cleaning; Jen is an exceptionally gifted dental hygienist! I had an enormous gap between my two front teeth that made me self conscious when I spoke or smiled. Dr. Michael used his meticulous artistic skills and performed a miracle with bonding and now I no longer have this gap. It looks so natural nobody could ever tell it was bonded. I’m definitely now Inspired to Smile! I only wish I had found them sooner!! Don’t hesitate; make an appointment with them now!

I’ve reviewed Dr Michael and his staff before – they are completely amazing and have helped me overcome a lifelong fear of the dentist. But I have to post my visit yesterday because it was hands down one of the best days of my life!! I had giant buck teeth as a child, and a fairly significant overbite. I went through braces, headgear, retainers, the whole nine yards as a child and thought my smile was the best it would ever get. I didn’t like it and was very self conscious. A few years ago I was in a car accident on the freeway, hitting the guardrail head on. Chipped the backside of my top front teeth fairly badly, and it’s only gotten worse since then (the chips were deep enough to be seen from the front). Yesterday Dr Michael did a marathon 3+ hour session with me, doing some fillings on the top front. I’d mentioned the chips and some areas where the food would stick when I ate, and he said he’d take care of it. He is a perfectionist, and boy am I ever glad!! When he handed me the mirror yesterday, I almost burst into tears. I have the smile I always wanted to have, and I never in a million years thought I’d get. Words can’t express how amazing it feels and looks, I can’t stop smiling and it has literally changed my life. THANK YOU Dr Michael, for giving me such an amazing gift. First picture is before braces, second is with the chips, last two are yesterday with my gorgeous new smile!!!!

I truly love my dentist! Dr. Michael and his staff are so kind and welcoming. I always have a really pleasant experience and look forward to my cleanings. They are eager to answer my questions and make sure I am comfortable throughout the procedure. The office is beautiful and very clean! I recommend them to all of my friends and family 🙂

Dissatisfied Customer (Source: Google)


I’ve never enjoyed going to the Dentist, but since finding Dr, Gross at Inspiring Smiles Dentistry, I have gained confidence in going to the Dentist again. He lets me know everything that he is doing in my mouth and I never feel any pain, he listens to me, gives me options, he is very sympathetic and understanding. I can tell that he Loves what he do, and his staff is the best, very friendly and is always willing to help. Thanks to Dr. Gross I love going to the dentist.

Kayla S. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I have ever been to. I knew I had some issues to deal with as it had been a couple of years since I had gone to a dentist. Tried another place and I walked out almost in tears because of how crappy they made me feel. Inspiring smiles took the time to listen to me and made me feel hopeful that I could get things back on track. Dr Gross has such gentle hands I didn’t realize he was sticking a needle in my mouth. Jen the hygienist talks to you like you’re her best friend and keeps you laughing. They have been so helpful and encouraging. I never thought I would actually enjoy going to the dentist until now. I would recommend this business to anybody and everybody.

Jonathan C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist, but Dr. Gross and his staff make you feel like family, which adds a level of comfort and confidence that you’ll be taken care of. Jenn and Lana are awesome Dental Hygenists, and just sweet individuals. Now, I don’t mind going to the dentist, because of the great people there.

Jennie M. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


My visit was great. I wasn’t satify with my partials n the dentist was very very professional on handling my concern. He fix my partials n now they fit perfect n look fantastic,so now I will be wearing them everyday. Thanks to the dentist n his staff which is always friendly n always has a smile. My husband n I will be going back for our cleaning n I recommend that you try then. I guarantee that you will love them..

Lucy M. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I recently had a root canal / crown procedure done by Dr. Michael. It wasn’t my first but it was by far the best experience I’ve had. It’s worth noting that Dr. Michaels approach is something I have not encountered through other dentists. His work is exceptional and his care for his patients shows through his work. The office is immaculate, the atmosphere feels like a place that knows you. The staff is so nice and comfortable to be around. Scheduling was convenient!

Trevor Guthrie (Source: Google)


By far the beat Dentist I’ve been too. I have never felt one of the numbing shoots. I have had root canals periodontal cleanings and cavities. He uses the most modern technology and techniques and material. His office is very modern looking. Overall amazing experience!! Thank you Dr. Gross I almost forgot! I once came in to have work done. He checked my insurance to see what it would cover He came back to me after doing an evaluation and asked if I’d like to reschedule to a week or 2 later to save money! Who does that? Very moral and helped me save alot of money.

Best dentist I have found in Charlotte. All the staff is very knowledgeable and make sure that everything is explained in a way that is understandable. They are concerned about your overall oral health and do not try to sell you on procedures that you do not need. The office is clean and all the staff are friendly, from the front desk all the way to the dentist. You get a sense of strong teamwork and genuine care for both colleagues and patients. This is the first time I have ever written a review and it is well deserved.

Mallory R. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Love this office and their entire staff! Jen was hands down one of the best hygienists I’ve ever seen, and I couldn’t agree more with the other reviewers about Dr. Michael. He treated me like family, and I totally trust his judgement for my oral health. After moving around a ton over the past few years, I’m so thankful to have found this gem of a dental office to call home.

Alexander S. from McKinleyville, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son needed his wisdom teeth out so I called around local dentists for an appointment. Inspiring Smiles not only managed to squeeze him in on short notice, but did an excellent job all around. Friendly and helpful staff- convenient location- good results. I would definitely recommend

I just had some dental work done at Inspiring Smiles. The offices are clean and modern. Misty, and Jen were very welcoming, professional, kind, and helpful. Marlana and Dr. Michael were exceptionally gentle, professional, and knowledgeable. My procedure was completed without any discomfort, and I am very happy with the results. I am happy to highly recommend this practice to everyone.

Malisa P. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Everyone in this office is super personable and friendly! Jen (hygienist) isn’t just sweet and super attentive to your teeth, but extremely knowledgeable. She explains what she’s doing and why and helps you achieve the best for your oral hygiene. Dr. Michael is great and makes you feel extremely comfortable. The office is modern and clean, the decor is great-the waiting room feels like you’re relaxing at home, not like you’re about to see a dentist! Location of the office is easily accessible, the only downfall is if you take the elevator it is extremely slow and the stairwell isn’t always open. I actually don’t mind coming to the dentist when I know I have an appointment here!
