We were referred to Wells and it was the absolute best experience. We were able to get everything done the same day. The employees are very pleasant, the facility is clean and well kept, the service was amazing, the prices are very affordable and Dr.Wells is the best! I am very much so pleased with the overall visit and will definitely refer others.

Dr. Wells is a great orthodontist. He went over payment information, what exactly he was talking about, what needed to be performed on my son, and he was extremely friendly. His staff is very professional and willing to work with you and insurance to make sure you can pay what you can. Great staff, great office, great orthodontist…what more could you ask for!?

Working as a dental hygienist, I really wanted a pleasing smile. However, I hesitated since I was older. With the support and encouragement of Dr. Wells office, I decided to go for it. It has been almost 3 years since I had othodontic treatment with Dr. Wells and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am so much more confident now when I smile. Its amazing how a nice smile improves one’s self esteem!! Dr. Wells is meticulous in his work and so kind and patient. The staff is incredible and supportive. I could not have been in better hands! Thank you so much!!!

Dr. Wells is just the most fabulous orthodontist in all the land… well worthy of 6 stars if I could give them! He’s genuine, thorough, and truly goes the extra mile to take care of his patients. I had braces for 3.5 years when I was in high school, and my previous orthodontist didn’t take near the care that Dr. Wells provides, and his staff are equally as perfect as he is! Their office is conveniently located off Six Forks near 440 and is open Mon-Thurs 8-5 (though Dr. Wells is on-call all the time for emergencies). The office is new, modern, and very clean- they provide Keurig coffee & fruit infused water in the waiting area. They have a 3D panoramic x-ray in office so you don’t have to get that done elsewhere. My favorite part about the office is the amazingly beautiful saltwater tank in the middle of the treatment area! I started receiving treatment in October 2014, and the workup was more thorough than I could have ever imagined! Dr. Wells focuses on aligning your jaw to fix your teeth, not just fixing gaps in your teeth. It’s made such a difference in my bite, which I didn’t even realize I had an issue with. Though I still have braces, I get them off in a few months.. and I must admit I’m really looking forward to the song they all sing when their patients get their braces off 🙂 All in all, I couldn’t say enough positive things about Dr. Wells and his staff… when it comes to patient care, they go above and beyond. Truly impressive!

Wells orthodontics has an unmatched team of professionals that take care of you & make you feel very welcomed. They make the process that is tailored to why you are there make you feel that they genuinely care about your visit. I have lived in several places in the United States and the professionalism here really speaks for itself. I would give this orthodontics 10 stars if I could.

Dr. Wells is a fantastic orthodontist. My wife and I both started coming to Dr. Wells after she had a horrendous Invisalign experience at her old dentist. Understandably shaken, my wife immediately found Dr. Well’s calm and patient demeanor refreshing, and his thoroughness got her out of a dark orthdontic place and into a bright, healthy, well-aligned smile. I’ve been a patient here for about 3 months now and have nothing but good things to say. All of the staff are pleasant and seem to really care.

Our daughter got her braces off today! We had a great experience at Wells Orthodontics. The staff was so friendly and helpful, and we always felt welcomed and at ease in the waiting room. Our daughter always felt her concerns were listened to and addressed. We would definitely recommend Wells!

The entire team is just wonderful! From the very first phone call to this very day, everyone has been amazing. I appreciate how everyone was so friendly and helpful throughout this process. I can’t thank them enough – Alice, Regina, Shelley, Ashton, Pamela and not to mention Dr. Wells. I am very pleased with the results, Wells Orthodontics is one of the best around!

Dr. Wells and staff have always been so patient and friendly with my two kids. Dr. Wells is very sensitive about how he speaks about treatment to kids. He is always very friendly, calm and knowledgeable. From the time that we began consultations with Dr. Wells, I never felt like we were rushed into treatment. And on the one occasion that we had somewhat of an emergency, Dr. Wells returned my call very promptly and was able to see me right then. We have always been satisfied with Wells Orthodontics.

S H. from Clayton, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wells and his staff were so accommodating and professional. During the entire consult he spoke to my child I both explaining everything in terms we could understand. I LOVED how he spoke directly to my child during his exam and made sure she understood too. I’ve never had another provider or any type do that. His staff was very professional and courteous also

Hannah K. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m actually a recent transplant from CA. I had JUST begun my orthodontic work when I was presented with an amazing job opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up! My orthodontist back home recommended Dr. Wells and I’m really glad they did! They are really taking care of me “well” – pun intended! 🙂 I wouldn’t have been so worried about a new orthodontist if it wasn’t for the appliance screwed in to the roof of my mouth which is the main reason WHY I got braces! But I’m really happy and satisfied with the service I’ve received from everyone in the office, not just my encounter with the women who work in the front, but also with all the assistants and Dr. Wells himself. I especially like it here because it reminds me of my old orthodontist’s office and it makes me feel like I’m back in CA again. What I especially love is that they are always more than happy to answer any questions I may have and even recommended a place to get my nails done!! 🙂 I’m definitely glad I decided to go with Dr. Wells and his staff! They are all great people in my book! 🙂 Plus they’re less than 5 minutes from my house!! I love it!! 🙂

Our daughter is on her second round of braces with Dr. Wells. Needless to say, she needed a good bit of work done in her mouth when we first got started. And now that we are almost ready to have the second set removed, her teeth and smile are looking amazing! From the first meeting over 6 years ago, we were impressed with Dr. Wells, his staff, and his entire office. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and caring. From the ease of making and/or changing appointments, to the routine visits, to billing, to the BIG visits, we have been completely satisfied and happy to have found Dr. Wells!

Orthodontics are not fun for the child (upkeep, aesthetics, etc.) nor the parent (cost). However, Dr. Wells and his staff do a great job of making the experience as palatable as it can be. Wells Orthodontics is very professional, yet personable with parents and their kids. Their pricing is fair, and they provide payment plans or discounts for upfront payment. Pricing is also convenient; subsequent visits are included in the initial cost so there are no hidden fees or a need to budget for future visits. Dr. Wells and his staff are very kind, caring, and proactive. The icing on the orthodontic cake is the facility. Well’s Orthodontics is state-of-the-art, from the orthodontics area to the waiting room (coffee, flat screens, couches, a fireplace, and sometimes even cookies). There may be other orthodontics facilities as good in Raleigh, but you’d be hard-pressed to find one better than Wells.

My daughter has just this week had her braces fitted. Made much easier for her by having a friendly group of professionals carrying out her treatment. So far from consultation 2 years ago to fitting of her fixed braces this week, we have had a very pleasant experience. Also very refreshing to b welcomed by a very friendly helpful receptionist.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The doctor was very informative. We had a pleasant experience at this office. I thought it was very helpful for Devon that the nurse and the doctor went over what was going to happen the day of the appointment before they started the appointment. It helped him to feel more comfortable. Great experience!

My daughter has been a patient at Wells for several years. They did an excellent job with her braces and are continuing with her retainers. She recently had a cleaning at her dentist and they got some superfloss stuck in her retainer. We were able to call Wells and get a same day appointment and they got the floss out. They care about their patients and do a great job!

Kavaruss C. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wells has an excellent practice at Wells Orthodontics! The staff are all extremely warm and friendly and the office is incredibly beautiful and comfortable. Dr. Wells has been very professional and informative throughout my entire progress with him. He works to make sure that I have a complete understanding of what my next steps and what my options are. I’ve never felt so well treated when going to an orthodontics office. 10/10

Nick D. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I am very thankful for Dr. Wells and his team. Dr. Wells and his knowledge of new technology and treatment saved me from having jaw surgery. I had a very difficult case, but in the end, it was all worth it – now I have great function and a very handsome smile. Thank you Dr. Wells and the whole team for helping me.

Cathy K. from Apex, NC (Source: Yelp)


I am taking the time to write a review of Dr. Andrew Wells and everyone at his office. I was the patient, not the typical young person but my dentist said my teeth were moving due to age so I needed braces. Invisalign wouldn’t work for my case and I needed standard metal braces. So he sent me to the best Orthodontist in Raleigh. At least I feel that way because how could a practice be better? Dr. Wells is so patient, especially me being the dental phobic person I am. Everyone in his office from Reception to the assistants that help Dr. Wells are amazing. I wore my braces for a little over 2 1/2 years and every visit you are greeted by Reception with a smile and the beautiful office doesn’t hurt. Looks like a spa. I can’t thank them all enough because I was freaked out about getting them removed thinking it was going to hurt. Dr. Wells knows me really well by this point and was so gentle. I was amazed that I was able to get it done without sedation from my Dentist. I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone there. If you find you or your children need braces there is only one choice in my opinion, Dr. Wells is the place to go. I wish I could give 10 stars. And for me to say all of this because my Dentist years ago used to have to sedate me to clean my teeth. So I have come a long way. Dr. Wells practice has been amazing for me and I can’t say thank you enough. I will see them again in 2 weeks to get my retainers. If you are on the fence as to who to see for Orthodontic care, please see Dr. Well’s practice. You will be amazed as I have been.

We started my treatment when I turned 66. Yup can you believe it I started wearing braces at 66. Come to find out I was chewing with my front teeth and my front were wearing really bad. Dr Wells and his crack team set me straight and my teeth…After the braces came off I ventured up stairs to work with the Mrs Dr Wells who made my teeth look 40 years younger. They are a super team. I trust them entirely and am pleased with their attention to details and excellent caring patient care.

The staff is always courteous, they keep you in the loop before during and after your visit and explain things in a way that is easily understood which inevitably leaves you feeling 100% comfortable during your visit. They are a well oiled machine because everything seems to operate so smoothly, effortlessly, and flawlessly. Most medical interactions tend to make you feel like your being rushed along which can feel disingenuous, but that is the opposite of Dr. Wells as I have always witnessed his sincere and genuine care and concern for not just my son, but other patients & even his staff. Due to the presence of a tumor that developed in the gums near his front teeth, my son required oral surgery. After the tumor was removed corrective treatment was able to begin and I was stunned by how quickly his teeth started to move back into place as a result of the great job they are doing with his braces. Thank you Wells Ortho Family ❤

Best orthodontist and team in the triangle! Dr Wells is a perfectionist and takes time to thoroughly explain treatment. He is advanced in technique and technology. The office works like a well-oiled machine. The staff does not miss a beat when it comes to thorough and personal treatment. The smiles they produce are healthy and beautiful!

Lynn M. from Durham, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wells always has a smile on his face!  He has a way of putting you at ease.  I was very nervous about getting braces so close to 30, but the experience has been great.  The staff is always so friendly and they always greet me by my first name.  They make setting appointments fast and easy!  I would definitely recommend Dr. Wells !

I was referred to this place by a friend of mine. My first introduction? Free tickets and popcorn to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 at the IMAX. This was before I knew what we were going to do about orthodontics. The staff, including Dr. Wells, was so nice. They did not pander. They were just warm and friendly. And they have been that way ever since. Alice is like a friend; well, she is a friend. And when I’m in there, she and the staff are like that with everyone that comes in. They always talk to the kids as the ones that are being treated, instead of talking over and around them and only to the parents. But they do talk to their parents about the treatment, and the detail is excellent and to point. I had been to several orthodontists and I found Wells to be slightly higher but make sure to compare what you get for the price because I found I got a lot more. But more than that, the user experience is more than just ‘you are the customer’. They are beyond that, it is very family-friendly, as in “you are family’. I highly recommend them and do as much as I can.

” I have been in braces now for a little over a year and I can not say enough positive things about Dr. Wells practice. Everyone is friendly, kind and concerned about how I’m progressing from the front staff to the back. I am in braces a little late in life but have found the experience at Dr. Wells more than I had hoped for as far as care. I live in Greensboro and travel to Raleigh to Dr. Wells office. I feel like they are an extension of my Raleigh family. If you are looking for a kind and professional ortho office, I don’t believe you could find one that is better. The whole staff is WONDERFUL!!!! “

Shelley was so nice and explained everything to me before I saw Dr. Wells. She asked me questions, explained their meaning and read me everything she wrote down. I felt very comfortable and she made me feel super welcome and taken care of. Dr. Wells was super communicative during my consultation. He explained everything he was doing and why he was doing it. I felt like I was in great hands the entire time. They also were super nice regarding payment and explained the pros and cons to each option for me. I would highly recommend!

I can honestly say you are never to old if you desire to have that perfect smile. I spent many years debating whether to get my teeth done & was extremely nervous. From the first appointment I was made to feel really relaxed, every step was explained all along the way in a friendly & professional manner. I’ve just had my brace off after 18months & I couldn’t be happier with the results. I feel like the Cheshire Cat every time I smile, which is allot now. The whole team were amazing from the ladies in reception, Paul, Richard and assistants. Thank you so much everyone �

Great team delivering great service. I have been kept informed of my possible choices at each stage of my treatment over the last year, and have to commend the whole team for their courtesy and professionalism at every stage. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking of taking up treatment.

My experience with Wells Orthodontics was extremely positive. All the staff, including Dr Wells, were very courteous and kind. I felt welcomed every time I came in for an adjustment. Dr Wells is efficient and takes care when making adjustments. You can tell he has your best interests in mind. I’d recommend Wells Orthodontists to anybody looking for the perfect smile!
