Worry-Free Dental Care

An Anxiety Free and Judgement Free Dentist

Let us lighten your load

You’ve already got enough on your plate. A Better Dental experience is designed to give you confidence that you’ll be taken care of. Here are a few of the ways we’ll earn your trust.

Transparent Pricing

No smoke and mirrors

We promise that our billing practices will always be transparent, consistent, and ethical. We will keep our financials accurate and fair, and we will happily answer any questions, or settle any concerns that my arise.

We will do all we can to bring clarity to the often-confusing realm of medical-billing. If you have a question about your bill, or even if you’re just fuzzy on the difference between a co-pay and a premium, you can always turn to us for answers.

Better Dental Guarantee

“We are proud to offer a fifty year guarantee on the workmanship of all of our porcelain restorations. This includes Crowns, Porcelain Fillings (Inlays & Onlays), Bridges, Veneers, and Implant Crowns. If your porcelain restoration fails in five years… ten years … or even fifty, we will repair or replace it at no net cost to you.”

*Regular dental check-ups and maintenance are required to keep your guarantee in force. Some exclusions may apply.

Free Consultation

The Best estimates are free

Interested in dental implants? Thinking about getting your teeth straightened? Call or book online today for a free consultation visit. We will answer your questions and help you find out how to take the next step in getting your dental desires fulfilled.

Judgement-Free Dental Care

We like you the way you are

We don’t feel it’s our job to nag, berate, force, or coax our guests into changing bad habits. So, when it comes to brushing and flossing, quitting smoking, or other lifestyle choices that we encourage our guests to make, we have a no guilt, no judgment care-policy. For us, it’s a matter of trust. The last thing we would want to do is make guests feel they can’t be honest about their habits or history.

Instead of heaping guilt onto our guests, we’re in the business of uplifting, helping, and loving them — whatever their state of dental health or personal history. When you come to Better Dental, you can be your true, honest self, and know that you won’t be given the third degree about bad habits — even if you *gasp!* sometimes forget to floss, or even if you haven’t picked up a toothbrush in years. In order to help our guests improve their dental hygiene or lifestyle, we believe that an honest and trusting relationship is the first step. Welcome, one and all!

Anxiety Management Options

How we’re giving fear the boot

If you experience anxiety at the dental office, you’re in good company. More than half of all Americans report some amount of anxiety when they visit the dentist. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Better Dental is here to help you cope with, and even overcome, dental phobia. The surest way to put the kibosh on dental phobia is to build a relationship with a dental care provider you know and trust personally.

And, if even the thought of sitting in a dental chair sends shivers up your spine, you may like to schedule a complimentary Dental Anxiety Consultation with Dr. Draper. In a non-clinical setting, Dr. Draper will be happy to get to know you, discuss your concerns, and explore possible interventions, including the use of nitrous oxide or pharmaceutical sedative options.

“I never thought I would say this, but thanks to Better Dental and their superb level of care, I LOVE going to the dentist! From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with friendliness, which continues throughout your visit (Sorry ladies, you’re all great. But, Gypsy is my favorite 😉). Staff are knowledgeable and extremely helpful in answering any questions or addressing concerns. My hygienist, Leah, is EXCELLENT in working with my high level of anxiety, as is Dr. John. Not only is he meticulous and thorough, his kindness and gentle nature instantly relieves my anxiety and he goes above and beyond to ensure my comfort. The bottom line is if you’re searching for a dentist, look no further. Better Dental truly lives up to their name and you won’t be disappointed! If I could rate 10+ stars, I would.” Cindi B.

Financing for Just About Everyone

Approval rates above 99.9%

For many, the biggest barrier to great dental care is and always has been financing. Sometimes dental insurance won’t cover necessary treatments, leaving you at a loss. We’re happy to say that Better Dental can offer financing options to almost everyone. Good credit, bad credit, or no credit – we can create a payment plan that works for you. Just stop by our office or give us a call to begin planning your treatment and get started on the path to better dental health, on any budget. Well-qualified guests may even qualify for twelve months of interest-free financing.

Of course we accept all major credit cards as well as personal checks. Better Dental is also one of the few dentists in the Raleigh area who accepts Bitcoin payments.
