Dr Preston and her team always deliver consistent, efficient and high quality care. I’ve been going to her practice for years and I have always been very pleased with my care. Recently, I decided to invest in Invisalign! I needed new retainers, but I had to correct a couple of crooked teeth that shifted over the years before a new set of retainers could be created. In two weeks, I will complete the treatment phase and I could not be more surprised or happy with the outcome. Invisalign was both affordable and a dream compared to the traditional orthodontics I suffered through as a teenager! I’m astonished at the outcome and am so looking forward to receiving my permanent retainers!

Callie is an amazing hygienist! So Gental and effective. She answered all of my questions and was nice and professional. Dr. Valerie Preston is the best! I have been going to her for about 19-20 years and I don’t plan on going anywhere else! She is very professional, honest, explains everything, is honest, & does great work! The staff is great and the ambiance truly calms anxiety. If you have anxiety upon any dental work, she has many things to sooth any your anxiety naturally. A blanket if you are cold, soothing music, diffusing essential oils, and they can also set you up to watch Netflix with earphones during a procedure. I usually bring my own earphones. I know. I’m in good hands at VP Dental!

With my wedding coming up, VP Dental took good care of me and made sure that I will have the perfect smile on my big day! From whitening treatments to crown work, they provided superior service, and not to mention, a few laughs along the way. They’ve updated their processes and procedures to mitigate risks of COVID-19 and I felt safe 100% of the time. I’d highly recommend VP Dental for all cosmetic and other dental services. Come join the fun and VP Dental family!

Dr. Preston has always been so kind and thoughtful! She has been my dentist for 20 years and I would never trust anyone as much as I trust her! She is truly the best! I have had some major dental work and she has always talked me through it and has always been patient with my anxiety. She makes you feel at home. She can fix anything! I will never go anywhere else!

Dr. Valerie Preston and her staff were outstanding during my initial visit! From the moment I stepped into the office, I was greeted by a friendly receptionist. I was apprehensive about this office visit, since most dental visits are painful for me, but I was quickly put at ease. The staff cared for me in a delicate, but efficient manner, taking into account the difficulties in my mouth. Dr. Preston took her time and thoroughly assessed my situation as other dentists failed to do. I didn’t feel like I was just another mouth the clean. This office is equipped with the latest in dental care and hygiene. I was also pleasantly surprised to see natural options such as coconut floss! Who does that? I look forward to my follow up visits and highly recommend this office to all of my family and friends.

I use to get teary eyed when it came time to visit the dentist – now I’m excited! This office is full of kind and helpful staff and they get that a lot of people hate going to the dentist. So you know what they do? Make it feel like home. This team treats every patient like family and they’ll do everything they can to make you comfortable. Also, my smile has NEVER looked this good. I’m so happy and I highly recommend going to Dr. Preston!

Always appreciate the professional, personal care that everyone at VP Dental provides. They are all very thorough and explain all the pertinent details enabling their patients to be fully engaged in their dental care – and all with a smile! Finally, though they are not on any in-network insurance providers list, they are very helpful in filing claims and ensuring that they do everything they can to help with those often confusing and complex processes. I highly recommend VP Dental for any/all services to help you with your smile.

VPreston Dental is the best dentist I’ve ever had. When I talk to the dentist and staff, I know that they’re actually listening to what I am saying and really care about finding the best treatment for me. A lot of dentist are just thinking about their bottom line. Dr. Preston listened to me, did an evaluation, and then explained my options. For the first time in my life, I completely understood my dental treatment plan. Other places, I’ve been rushed in and out like cattle and then handed a bill. Anyhow, I definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a great family dentist in Raleigh, NC.

Dr. Preston and her team provide excellent care with extraordinary service that is unmatched. I truly enjoy my visits to the office. Dr Preston is the epitome of a true professional whose experience is fueled by her passion for her profession as well as her care for her patients.. I cannot say enough about the dental care I receive by Leah as well, and her attention to detail. Thank you again for a great visit.

Dr. Preston and all her staff are super qualified and concerned for me. They have always taken the time to listen to my concerns and respond to them with high quality. They also follow-up on concerns. Dr. Preston replaced all my old amalgam fillings with no residual pain or problems. I also had Invisalign treatment from Dr. Preston with great success. She’s really here for her patients.

I’ve been going to Valerie Preston for close to 7 years. I would just like to say, that it is seldom heard how much someone LOVES their dentist. But I DO! She is compassionate, responsive, listens, and goes the extra mile in an emergency, even providing me her personal cell number when needed. The staff reflects the same. They are all so accommodating, friendly and provide exceptional care. If you haven’t found a Dentist you love, you should visit Valerie Preston’s office.

If you are not a patient here… you are truly missing out! I used to be afraid of the dentist, but these folks melt away those fears. I feel part of their family during their visits. Always patient, understanding, and considerate of my needs. Dr. Preston is the best dentist I’ve ever been to and she’s well educated and up to date on all dental and health issues. I love they also incorporate essential oils in their practice. I HIGHLY recommend this practice!

Dr Preston replaced a crown on one tooth and put a new crown on another tooth (same side of mouth) at the same visit. I am 3 day post visit and I can chew food with those new crowns. I have not been able to do that in 2 years. Cold and heat sensitivity is almost non existent. Thank you!!!!!!!!

Wow. I’m not sure how I could be treated better than the way Dr. Preston and her staff did with me. They were courteous and personable during my whole visit, and they work together as a team very well. The attention they give to my teeth is incredible, as if they are signing their name to my smile, like a piece of art about to go on display. Not that I look forward to going to the dentist, but they make it to where I don’t want to make excuses to not go.

Dr. Preston has been my dentist since 2008 and she is amazing!! She and her team are so warm and welcoming!

She is the best!! Dwain

Dr. Preston has been my dentist for almost 20 years. She is very knowledgeable in all her dental work and is very compassionate to her patients. She takes the time to give the best service. I would highly recommend her for any dental work – and she does not hurt you! I love this dental practice. And now, this practice has in-house dental insurance, even for people on Medicare with limited or no dental coverage!

How many people do you know that actually can say “I like going to the Dentist”? I am no longer nervous or anxious with Dr. Preston and her Staff. Invisalign (clear braces) has corrected years of problems with my bite and Dr. Preston has turned my smile into one that I am happy Smiling again! I could not be more happy with the entire staff, Kind, Considerate, Professional and a sincere concern of my Well Being and Comfort. Thank you Dr. Preston! You have made such a difference in my life!!

Valerie and her staff are wonderful, caring people and they have gone out of their way to make the experience match the quality of the care. We drive from Durham to her North Raleigh Office because we appreciate her care and attention to customer service. Top notch and highly recommended

I used to be afraid of the dentist because of past experiences. After going to see Dr. Valerie Preston this past year, my fear and anxiety of going to the dentist is completely gone. She and the staff at VPreston Dental, not only made me feel at ease by explaining the details of their procedures, but also did an amazing job with my teeth. My wife and daughter, who is in middle school, also have nothing but great things to say too. I’m glad to have found a dentist where my family and I don’t have to be nervous, and that we can be confident that our dental issues are taken care of.

There are no words to express what a truly wonderful dentist and awesome human being Dr. Preston is. After some bad experiences with other dentists in the area, I was blessed to find Dr. Preston. She has now been taking care of my teeth for over 10 years and I can’t say enough good things about her. She has done hours of restorative work on teeth that I thought would be lost and replaced by dentures a long time ago. Today those teeth are all still there and looking good! She always makes me feel like she can fix anything and that everything is going to be OK! If you can’t say that about your current dentist, you need to go see Dr. Preston!

My teeth were very crowded together, brittle, jagged, and worn. The staff gently coaxed me over the course of two years to get them fixed before they started breaking which would entail an implant, something that was recommended I avoid if at all possible. Finally, I concurred and wore Invisilign braces for 6 months, then had my teeth built up with a resin compound. The results were amazing! My teeth look and feel so much better! Stronger, straighter, much more attractive. I am so glad they persisted in encouraging me to go this route. Totally worth it!

I absolutely love this office. It’s so warm and welcoming, yet professional and caring! What more could you ask for from a Dental Office. Leah cleans my teeth and does a phenomenal job. I’m pretty picky too! I love how gentle, yet thorough she is. My teeth even look whiter after she’s done with me! Dr. Preston comes by after my cleaning. I feel like I’ve known her for years. So caring and personable. Donna and Vickie run the check in and check out desk. I love them too! I literally have nothing bad to say about this office. Check them out you won’t regret it!

Dr. Preston is the best! Her and her staff are always so sweet and make myself as a patient feel so welcome with every visit. I’ve yet to meet a hygienist I didn’t like (shoutout to Leah). I recently moved to a different city but still drive to Dr. Preston for appointments… you will not receive better service than here. A year or two ago I chipped one of my front teeth and was told by my previous dentist that they could not fix it without shaving all of my teeth down. When I moved back to Raleigh and visited Dr. Preston, she was able to fix my tooth within my next visit! Can’t even tell it was ever chipped. If you’re looking for a great dentistry with even better customer service, you’ve found it!
