Dr. Tommy Kakouras is an phenomenal dentist! I love and appreciate all the work that he and his staff does. Everyone in the dentistry from the front door staff to the back office staff is extremely polite, professional and personable. I recently got a crown replaced that I originally got when I was 16 and I actually shed tears! My crown is beautiful and you cannot even tell it’s a crown! I’ll let you see for yourself..

It is rare these days to find a place where you feel welcome, and your business appreciated, from the time you walk in the door, until the moment you leave. They do an amazing job of that here! They are also great at getting you in and out quickly while being professional, courteous, and doing an amazing job. My teeth have never felt cleaner! My whole family has transitioned over to this office!

I have been going to Kakouras for many years and I love it! I have never had any problem! As a matter of fact, I had a crown put in. The next day I went to the mall. So many people were saying “you have a nice smile!” I was so happy! There was noticeable difference in my smile! Dr. Kakouras is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional! I love his staff as well! There is a diverse staff which is great! I love going there! I highly recommend Kakouras Dentistry to anyone!

It is never really exciting going to the dentist but the whole team staff at Kakouras family Dentistry are awesome! Dr Tommy cares and understand my every need! He is truly an awesome Dentist and he makes my uneasy procedures more pleasant! Thank you from my whole family to your whole family God bless you all

Every person I have dealt with here is gracious and helpful. I needed to pick up my bite guard but struggled to find time and even rescheduled twice. When I called to reschedule a third time, the receptionist offered to fit me in within thirty minutes since I had indicated that I was available. The doctor answered all my questions regarding bite guards so that I could make an informed decision, and I am happy with the results. The bite guard fits wonderfully and is quite comfortable to sleep in.

I went in for my cleaning today it was absolutely perfect I had some questions regarding how to properly care for some of my back teeth and Karen the dental hygienist was absolutely 100% phenomenal. Dr. Tommy also stopped in to see how I was doing since a few weeks ago I did have my wisdom tooth pulled out and he wanted to make sure that I was feeling better and that my wisdom tooth extraction point with healing properly. Top notch staff wouldn’t go anywhere else highly recommend this place.

My experience has always been amazing. I had my crowns done and now every one compliments me on what a good job my dentist did. I could not ask for anything better. Staff is very nice, never had to wait and everyone is professional. They care about you and make sure you are happy and there’s no issue with your teeth. Dr Tommy is very talented. I had wisdom and baby teeth extractions, deep cleaning and crown work done and I cannot complain about anything.

Dr. Kakouras and Dr.Helms were so great. I brought my mom to this office because of the friendly staff and welcoming environment they have. My mom has huge dental anxiety and from the moment she walked in they were able to put her at ease during her appointment. Patty at the front desk was also very nice and helped breakdown how the appointments and financials work for each visit. I love this office and they have a great team!

André P. from Rock Hill, SC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kakouras and his staff provide excellent service. I like that check in and check out are always smooth and efficient. The reception area is welcoming and all receptionists make you feel at home and make you feel valued when you enter and leave the I love that Kakouras honors my appointment times with easy check-ins and prompt call-backs. They are always ready to call me back with very minimal wait-times.

I absolutely recommend Kakouras Family Dentistry not only for their amazing team, including Dr Kakouras, Dr Helms, Rachel, Alicia, and Patty (who especially went out of her way to help me with a personal situation) but for the comfort and quality of work. I never once was in pain or felt uncomfortable. They are extremely efficient, friendly, professional, and caring. Fabulous place and people! FIVE BIG STARS. Also really appreciate the superb job on my mother’s front dental implant. She had been wearing an old poorly fitting metal partial for 23 years and Dr Kakouras was amazing throughout the implant process. She cried tears of joy when they handed her the mirror and saw the final product. The office made her feel so comfortable and they really cared for her.

Simply put, this is one of the best experiences I have had at a dentist. I am not a big fan of dentists.. as such, I am sure that I have created quite a few of my own dental issues. I was recently in kind of an urgent situation where I lost a crown and most of the tooth attached. Kakouras Family Dentistry was able to get me in fast, evaluate the need, create a plan.. and execute it. For a filling and an extraction, I was in and out of the office in about 1 hour! (But never felt rushed) I appreciate that they respect their patient’s time. The office staff is professional yet very personable. I will be going back in a few weeks for a full new patient work up, and while I would never say that I am looking forward to a dentist appointment, I am not dreading it either! LOL! Thanks Dr Tommy! Thanks Kakouras Family Dentistry!

Eric S. from Fort Mill, SC (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Kakouras for years and he has always been responsive, professional, and feel that they are doing the necessary and proper procedures for what is needed. Recently, I had an emergency and they saw me extremely promptly, corrected the issue, and were sensitive to the charges. Best dentist I’ve had in my life and they have my business as long as I am in the area!

If your looking for a great dentistry go to Kakouras Family Dentistry. The Doctors and Staff are nothing but professional,kind,and knowledgeable . They welcome you with great big smiles as soon as you walk though the door up until you leave. There are two doctors at the practice who are husband and wife, Dr.Helms and Dr. Kakouras. Both of the doctors are great. They are very passionate about their job and put your best interest first, always going the extra mile to ensure the patients satisfaction.All the staff explain everything out to you about your treatment you may need to receive or the treatment your about to receive. Everyone from the Doctors, Dental Hygienist, and Dental Assistants are nothing but gentle with you. You truly can tell everyone has your best interest in mind, they even are kid oriented. They make sure that the kids are comfortable, whether they are with their parents who are getting the cleaning or the kid is getting the cleaning. If your kid comes with you they have special chairs for them to sit on while you receive your cleaning and when they get their teeth clean they reward them with stickers and a trip to the treasure chest. I wouldn’t recommend any other practice but Kakouras Family Dentistry. It’s perfect for the whole family.

The one and only Dental office that you feel welcomed and you are treated as family. Starting from the front staff to the Dental Assistants to the Doctors this place is great. I will speak highly of this Dental office with much praise to both Doctors on how amazing of a job they do. My entire family has been seen at this office and we all can say that the way we are treated can’t be compared to other dental offices around the area. The care that is provided is top notch! Highly recommend this Dental Office.

Having just moved out of state, you can imagine how much of a nightmare finding a great dentist would be! Thankfully, with the help of several outstanding reviews, I put my trust in Kakouras Family Dentistry and was NOT at all upset about that decision! Kakouras Family Dentistry made me feel at home right away! By welcoming intimate conversation and explaining things in pure customer care detail, everyone in the office is sure to make you a friend before a patient! My shiny teeth and I will be back!!

I have very high anxiety about going to the dentist. My past experiences are what has defined this nervous relationship with the phrase “dentist”. But I care about keeping my teeth. And I had some serious issues from neglect on my part… I was encouraged by my family to get insurance and go to their dentist. Kakorouras family dentistry. I was so scared I was trembling the whole time during my exam. I had issues that I knew were bad. The team didn’t go hard on me like my past experiences they cheered me up and were empathetic with the fact that I care and want to make healthy choices. They didn’t scare me with the situation. They told me my treatment plan with a solution based attitude. No shaming. No negative outlook on my hygiene. Encouragement that is and was the genuine article. I’m still completing my treatment plan but I have completed about half. I am consistently treated very well. And I’m starting to feel better about myself as a person because it really took a lot of effort on my part to follow through. In terms of how my treatment plan was laid out. It’s also amazing.. Everything is laid out with common sense. I’m not super uncomfortable from having too much done in one day at the recommendation of the team. I appreciate this office greatly and at every turn I recommend them to those I encounter who are searching for dental care.

I love this family dentistry because you are treated like family. Every employee is warm, friendly and cares about you as a person. I have been coming here for 12 years. I commuted from Charleston, SC to see Dr. Tommy. I only wish I had before and after pictures to show you the remarkable work that Dr. Tommy and Dr. Melissa did with my mouth. I had a messed up mouth with bad bridge and cap work from another dentist. Today I have a pain free mouth and beautiful smile with perfect jaw alignment again. I give the Kakouras Family Dentistry 5 stars PLUS. Sonji K, Charleston, SC

I have been going to Kakouras- family dentist since 2007 now my son and daughter also go to them. They are the best!!! The take care of all my issues. Explain the treatments carefully and give the best advice how to take care of your teeth. The staff are all very nice, courteous and very friendly. Most of them has been there for a long time. I feel like I am part of them every six months when I go for my cleaning or when I take my son. The office is very nice and clean. Miriam

Awesome dental office!! My 1st visit was an emergency visit (after my previous dentist didn’t call me back for 3 days)… Everyone there was so very kind – they took great care of my issue. I had 2 root canals and crowns – they made the process very easy for me and fit me into the schedule quickly. The new crowns are perfect (very pretty). I just went back for my 1st cleaning there – I expected the usual run-around where they tell me I need a ton of work done… Instead they did a thorough exam and found no major issues. I’ve had previous dentists where they will ‘find’ more work to be done – Tommy did not do that. I highly recommend this dental office – they are GREAT!!

Great care experience from the time you walk in until the time you walk out. Everyone is engaging, patient and very thorough. Dr. Kakouras and Sandi took their time in ensuring I had all my questions answered and offered up several options for a wisdom tooth I am just starting to have trouble with. Thanks to Rhonda as well for providing some information regarding insurance coverage related to my options. Also, who does not love televisions mounted above your head so you can catch up on shows as a distraction! So happy to have found a great dental care location near home. Wonderful experience! They have such a friendly and welcoming staff. Very clean office. The dentist was so nice, down to earth, honest and easy to talk to. Highly recommend! Keep up the great service!

I just had my first appointment at KAKOURAS Family Dentistry with our entire family. It was the best dental visit we have ever had. Everyone was so professional and the staff was courteous and compassionate. Everyone had a smile on their face and you could tell they really enjoyed what they did. We met both doctors that day and gave us the best treatment. They were extremely knowledgeable and showed patience with my questions. I was referred here after reading all the great google reviews. I recommend them to everyone and can’t wait to receive my treatment for smile makeover. I can really see why they are Charlotte’s Best Dentist!!!!! Cheers.

Tj D. from Gastonia, NC (Source: Yelp)


Ever since I started coming to Kakouras I’ve actually looked forward to going to the dentist. They treat you so well here at ever step and talk to you like you’re a real person. Never do they patronize you or make you feel ashamed unlike other dentistries. If the friendly staff doesn’t make you feel comfortable here then the massage chairs and hanging TVs definitely will.

Linda P. from Fort Mill, SC (Source: Yelp)


The staff here is very friendly and efficient. I have gotten rid of my fear of going to the dentist because of Kakouras Family Dentistry. They make sure that you are comfortable. For all of my life I was afraid of the dentist until I started going to Kakouras Family Dentistry. They are kind and gentle and care a great deal for their patients well being. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable and Dr. Kakouras is gentle and does the best work of any dentist that I have been to. Today Rosa was his assistant for my crown and she was gentle, caring and efficient. I am very impressed with the entire staff and have not felt this welcomed in any other dentist office.

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


I recently moved to Charlotte and was looking for a new dentist. A co-worker recommended Kakouras Family Dentistry, I couldn’t believe how awesome my treatment. You can watch Cable TV while they clean your teeth and they give you sunglasses to keep the bright lights out of your eyes. Best part is the teeth whitening treatment! 5 stars all the way!!

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


Best Dentist in Charlotte! Courteous staff. Don’t have to wait long. Dentists are very knowledgeable and compassionate. My whole family comes here and loves it. Beautiful office and very clean. They give you blankets if you get cold and they have massage chairs. They’re very good at explaining procedures and costs- no surprises. Keep it up guys.

Kakouras Family Dentistry is the BEST dentistry in Charlotte. If you are looking for miracles with your dental needs, warm friendly smiles and outstanding service from everyone person in this office contact Dr. Kakouras and Dr. Helms. Over the last 10 years they have reconstructed my mouth and saved my beautiful smile. Today was another miracle with a bridge just in time for the holidays. Thank you Kakouras family and staff!

I have been going to the Dentist for regular checkups for the past 20 years, but have never experienced the superlative service I received at Kakouras Family Dentistry. It started with the wonderful way I was greeted and made to feel welcome. On top of that the facilities were first rate and I was quickly escorted back for my exam and cleaning. In all my years of going to the Dentist, I have never had such a thorough exam and cleaning. My Hygienist, Rachel was excellent. She explained everything she was doing and the reason why. She is absolutely the best. I have found my Dentist and will return for all future service

Stacy S. from Indian Trail, NC (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely recommend this dentist to everyone!! I have never been too fond of going to the dentist, but after going here I do not mind it at all. The dentists and hygienists are all so nice, caring and gentle! They are very honest and do not try to tell you things just to get more money. The office is so nicely set up with TVs in every room so you can watch TV while you get your teeth worked on. I never have to wait long after checking in and they are very good about explaining to you what to expect. I feel that they are very thorough when they look at your teeth as well as when they clean them. They take their time to ensure that your visit is worth the while. I drive over one hour to go to this office and would not go anywhere else!!

Richard S. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this Dentist for 2 years since I moved from Chicago. I initially looked up reviews and proximity for the choice but the service and friendliness kept me going. I am very picky about dentists but I have had both Tommy and Melissa during my examinations and will continue using Kakouras Family Dentistry as long as I am in Charlotte.

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


I love this dentist. They are friendly and professional and they always do a good job. They never over charge me by adding on unnecessary care that my insurance doesn’t cover. (My last dentist was always also trying to sell me extra stuff like a nightly fluoride rinse etc. I drink over a gallon of water a day and brush twice a day, people, this was NOT something I needed.) The only trouble I’ve ever experienced is some wait time close to lunch time when they’ve had multiple unplanned emergency drop-ins (especially in December when everyone is trying to get their medical bills in before the end of the calendar year). But that only happened once and they were extremely apologetic. It is still not enough for me to dock them down from this 5 star rating.

Let me begin by saying that I have never had a better experience than I have had at Kakouras Family Dentistry! From my first encounter with the lovely Sandi, to multiple appointments with the amazing Dr. Tommy, my time spent in this office has been nothing short of fantastic. The folks here are professional, kind, warm-hearted, friendly, capable, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure patient satisfaction. Sandi has been the absolute picture of patience, even when I’ve inundated her with many random questions and concerns. She is a perfect New Patient Coordinator, incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming. Even though I’m not a new patient anymore, I still enjoy chatting with her when I visit! Dr. Tommy is definitely one-of-a-kind! From the moment he walks into the room, you know something amazing is about to happen. Not only is he a true artist, but he is a perfectionist to boot. My visits have been for cosmetic reasons and I have been positively stunned with his work right from the start. If you want a talented, genuine, dedicated dental expert, look no further! I consider myself lucky to have found such a great team. I have the utmost confidence in the abilities of this group and I actually look forward to future visits for all of my dental needs!

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


This was the best dentist visit I’ve had in a very long time. Everyone I interacted with seemed happy to be there and very knowledgeable! Especially my dental hygienist (Joanna?). I’ve been to a dentist office before where I questioned if people knew what they were doing, or if I was being charged for unnecessary things. I never felt that way here. I just got laid off my job and told that my insurance coverage was ending at the end of the month. I called to schedule an appointment and was able to get in the next morning! When I get new insurance, if I’m covered here, I will definitely be back here.
