Convenient Dental Care

Convenient Dental Care

Making it as easy as we can

We’re using everything at our disposal to make your dental care as convenient as possible.

Great technology, innovative thinking, and tireless effort all go into the mix.

Treatment for All Ages

One stop dental shop for your whole family

With us, you’ve got more than just family dental care: you’ve got a dentist who cares about your whole family. From the youngest to the oldest, and everyone in between. Whether that includes a newborn in need of tongue-tie or lip-tie correction, or a parent interested in solutions for tooth loss (such as dentures and dental implants), we provide compassionate care for everyone who matters to you.

Don’t forget to bring in the little ones for their first check up before age 3!

You’re Covered

We accept most major insurance plans

We’re proud to accept most major insurance plans in the United States, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Delta Dental, and many more. Don’t have major insurance? That’s okay; we accept dental discount plans and minor insurance plans, and we’re adding more all the time.

Please call us anytime for a free over-the-phone insurance consultation for those with questions about dental insurance plans: (919)355-5123

If you need help choosing a dental insurance plan, or if you have specific questions regarding your dental insurance coverage, our Dental Care Coordinators will be happy to help you.

Online Appointment Booking

Keeping up with technology

For those times when picking up a phone doesn’t strike your fancy, you can book your appointment online and have it instantly confirmed.

No waiting around, no hassle. Booking a dentist appointment doesn’t get any easier than this. Did we mention that we are the first dental practice in the greater Raleigh area to offer instant online booking via Oh yeah, and guess what else? Booking online saves you time — not just today, but also on the day of your appointment.

When you book online, you can securely submit your personal information and medical history at the same time. So, when you arrive at Better Dental, you’ll be able to save time with your paperwork already completed!

Open Early. Open Late.

Convenient hours to fit your hectic schedule

We’re all about making dental visits convenient, so of course we offer extended hours which we hope will fit your schedule. Learn more about our hours and location.

We happily accept walk-in visits during regular business hours. If you have a special scheduling request, please contact us and we’ll do our best to accommodate your schedule.

While we aren’t usually open on Saturdays, Sundays, or Holidays, we do make ourselves available 24 hours a day for any emergency dental appointments in Apex. We take our guests’ care and comfort seriously, which is why we provide urgent care, including emergency dental services, instant specialist referrals, or even urgent prescription service. For example, in the event of a 3 am toothache, Dr. Draper can call in a prescription, and you can pick it up at a 24-hour pharmacy in your area.

So, whenever you need a dentist, just know that we’re here for you in Apex.

We care about you. . . .not eight, not twelve, but 24 hours a day. Just call!

Easy Appointment Reminders

Let us worry about your calendar

We will send you an email reminder the day before, and a text message reminder two hours before your appointment. If you prefer, you can always opt out of these reminders, or you can request to have a phone call reminder instead.

If you’re one of the tech-savvy who uses Google Now, your appointment will be saved as a Google Now card to automatically send you local weather and traffic information.

It can even remind you when it’s time to leave so you’ll make it to your appointment right on time. How awesome is that?!

Paperless Check-in

No clipboards here!

When you arrive at Better Dental, after you’ve been warmly greeted by our friendly staff, you’ll be handed something familiar: an iPad. It’s perfect for entertaining little ones, or watching a little Netflix while you wait, but it also serves another purpose: this iPad is your personal record keeper!

You can use it to securely enter your personal information and medical history, without having to re-write your name and address again and again on paper forms.

Our paperless record system means we’re always up-to-date, and there’s nothing to shred, copy, or fax. Paperless check-in is faster, more convenient, and more secure than paper filing systems. Here’s to the future!
