Schatz Wayne, Youngsville

Had a great experience your team was excellent

Virginia S., Raleigh, NC

I found my experience to be to be excellent in every respect. The receptionist who greeted me was friendly and efficient. Dr. Baker both greeted me in a friendly manner, and I was especially impressed with the gentle way the Assistant took my X-Rays, and the way Dr. Baker worked on my mouth-his gentle touch-and the way he explained what he was doing each step of the way. I will definitely be back!

Linda B., Morrisville

Always get excellent care.

Lisa W., Wake Forest

Victoria did a great job cleaning my teeth! Dr. Baker was very professional and knowledgeable. I was impressed by all the new technology that makes it easier to see what is going on inside my mouth to help make wise decisions about my oral care.

Alicia M, Wilmington

I still drive home from Wilmington to go here and get my teeth taken care of. Wouldn’t trust anybody else.

Phil L., Wake Forest

Dr. Upton and staff are superb. He is proactive and conservative in treatment plans, always giving the patient information ahead of time to consider. Thorough, skilled, and a great clinician in all dental areas. Longevity of staff also speaks to employee satisfaction. I don't need a flowing fountain in the lobby, TV's on the exam room ceilings, or a patient coffee bar, just provide me excellent dental care without trying to sell me other services. (unless I inquire) Dr. Upton does that and more. Couldn't be more satisfied.

Luann Peterson, Raleigh

I absolutely love Dr Upton and Kim, my hygienist!! She does an amazing g job and I really look forward to going to the dentist!?? Everyone is professional but yet it feels like a family! Now my husband goes there as well!

Greta W, Youngsville

Anne B Hunt, Youngsville

Bonnie was the best as always. Enjoyed meeting Dr. Baker.

Jeff D., Pittsboro

This was my first visit here. I followed Dr. Baker(THE best!) there as one of his previous patients. Upon arrival, Joy met me with kind, reassuring warmth and hospitality that put me at ease. I had almost no wait until I met Bonnie, a delightful, happy, friendly dental hygienist who masterfully cleaned my teeth following a thorough exam of my mouth and neck for anything abnormal, then oral x-rays, checking for decay or gum disease. Her clinical approach put me at ease while she cleaned and polished my teeth and checked for pockets. She was gentle and thoughtful of my comfort throughout. I then saw Dr. Baker who greeted me with his great smile and personality like I was a close, long-time friend . e had an incredibly kind and caring bedside manner, explained what was necessary to fix my teeth where I had chipped and ground them in my sleep. Then he with his great assistant repaired my teeth without any discomfort at all. I highly recommend Dr.Baker and all his staff! Five Stars to all!

Butch H, Raleigh

I met Dr. Baker and I’m thrilled he joined such an awesome and caring staff. The best TEAM in town and I’m very grateful for all of them??

Betty Phillips , WAKE FOREST

Going to the denist is by far not my favorite thing to do, but I must say Dr. Upton and staff provide the best services around.

mike, c

From start to finish, you know that you are dealing with a professional well-run operation. Well timed text messages to confirm and remind you of appointments. Cheerful staff ready to greet you when you enter. Experienced dental hygienists who are almost always right on time, but if a little behind, you know that the previous patient needed some extra care. Most important of all, knowledgeable and capable dentists who take the time to explain things and give you a say in your own care.

Sarah Hall, Wake Forest

Dr Upton and his staff is absolutely awesome in every way!! They are like family to me I have been one of his patients for at least 12 years and have had quit a lot of dental work done and I can honestly say he haven’t hurt me a time yet. He is so gentle and have a way of making you feel relaxed! He is a excellent dentist and anyone looking for a dentist I would highly recommend him you won’t regret it !

Debbie T, Wake Forest

Everyone at Dr Upton’s office is cheerful, helpful and efficient. Dr Upton is fantastic!! His knowledge is amazing. My teeth and gums have improved and look so much better. Very surprised at the knowledge I’ve gained in the short time I’ve been a patient. I’m here for the duration!

DonnaF, Wake Forest

My appt went great. Hygienist was very personal and did a thorough cleaning while reviewing things with me as she worked. I saw the newest addition to the team, Dr. Baker, who was very pleasant and explained everything well. Great addition to a great practice, which I would always trust Dr. Upton’s choice. We have trusted his care for many years for our family.

James Ward, Raleigh

I appreciated the running commenatary given by Dr Baker - everything he had checked, seen, and why he was proceeding as he was.

Diane Phillips, Wake Forest

Wonderful experience. Very happy with the care and service.

Leslie Murray, Franklinton

Great service! My only complaint is that I wish they would join the BCBS network so that I would not have to pay any out of pocket. Is this something that the practice would be open to?

Barry O, Creedmoor

Was a pleasant visit, no pain!

Jackie R., Youngsville

They make a dentist appointment as pleasant as they can! Love the staff from check in to check out! Bonnie is the best hygienist ever!

Andrew Lloyd, Wake Forest

The staff here are great and always friendly. I have had fantastic service and dental treatment the past four years I have been going here. When an old tooth with a root canal snapped off and needed treatment, instead of just pushing an implant, as many other dentists would do nowadays, Dr. Upton listened to my concerns and we ended up opting for a bridge instead, that has held up fantastically for the past 2.5 years. I highly recommend this practice.

Linda Baker, Vilas

I am a new patient and saw Dr. Nick Baker, who recently joined Dr. Upton’s practice. The ladies at the front desk were very welcoming, and my hygienist, Kim, was gentle and thorough in cleaning my teeth using new technology. I have known Dr. Baker his whole life, as I happen to be his mom. I can say in all honesty that he has a very calm demeanor, cares deeply about his patients and profession, is conservative in his treatment, and is both gentle and excellent at what he does. He quickly became my favorite dentist! Very thankful to have him in Wake Forest!

Mark Beason, Raleigh

Dr upton and his staff are really good

Butch, Raleigh

In and out with no issues

CMitchell, Rolesville, NC

Terrific dental practice; however, I am sad Joye is retiring and sad Dr. Upton is cutting back to three days a week. I've been coming to this practice for a LOT of years and the service and care is always top notch.

Ray B., Raleigh

As “Tony the Tiger” would say, “greaaaat”!!!

James Ward, Raleigh

Everyone was friendly, efficient, and confident in their abilities.

James P, Raleigh NC

Terrific service

Jay H, Wake Forest

I had unbearable pain in my mouth from a broken tooth, that I could only control with Ibuprofen and Tylenol. My wife called Dr. Nick Baker who sent me to Dr. Upton, who was completely honest, informative, great bedside manner, and led me to the correct way for relief of the pain plus solving the problem by going to a specialist to perform the root canal. I am thankful! We will return and tell others of my experience.

Barbara Cullen, Wake Forest

My 8 year old son Shaun had a filling come out a few days ago and needed to have it replaced. In the past, my son has been very nervous and uncooperative and had to go to a pediatric dentist that administered nitrous to have his treatment completed. Today he saw Dr. Baker and had a wonderful experience. Shaun stayed calm and cooperative and when it was all over he said, "Dr. Baker was funny and the nicest guy I ever met" :)

Mitch P., Wake Forest

Friendly, professional care with thoughtful conservative care plans that allow the patient a voice. Staff seem to care about doing things the right way.

Claude B, Wake Forest

Not my favorite pastime but unfortunately necessary. If it weren't for Dr. K, it would not likely have any teeth now. I think Dr. K is the best in the area, been a patient a long time.

Jean, C, Franklinton

I have been coming to be treated by Dr . Upton since he came to Wake Forest. Always took care of all my dental needs.

My most recent cleaning and checkup continued their record of professional success. They continue to have my full confidence, and I recommend them without reservation.

Mary F, Youngsville

Dr Upton and all his staff are awesome!!

Steve B, Youngsville

I've been going to Dr. Upton for years. He is always caring and thorough, and never pushes unnecessary services.

Becky S, Wake Forest

Dr. Uptown has been my dentist for over 30 years, during which time he & his excellent staff have not only taken great care of my dental needs, but also guided me in improving the way I care for my teeth & gums at home, many times giving me the tools I need for the job. Not only does the entire staff treat each other like family, they treat patients like family as well. Although Dr. Upton seems to keep current on the latest dental procedures, he doesn’t try to push the patient to undergo anything that isn’t necessary. I highly recommend this practice.

Peggy B, Wake Forest, NC

I've been a patient of Kevin Upton for many years & have never had a bad experience with a hygienist, the front desk staff or with Dr Upton. Joy, at the front desk, is a joy to work with! She knows the business inside & out and is always pleasant. The hygienists know their stuff & know what Dr Upton wants & perform their job well & competently. Dr Upton is great! He is personable & a very good practitioner. He makes sure that everything is right before he says it is OK and you, the patient, have the final say if it's OK!

Phyllis, Raleigh

Very competent staff.

Sheryl D, Louisburg

Everyone very nice and helpful as always! Thanks!!

I have been a patient of Dr Kevin Upton for over 50 years, I was a patient there before Dr Upton came and continued there with him after he came to this practice. Our entire family have been patients: my husband, Freddie L. Wood, was a patient as well as our two sons, Chris and Tracy. As of now I am only patient in our family, my husband, Freddie, has passed away and our sons are married and moved and have their own dentist with their family. My family has been a patient of Dr Upton for a long time and I continue to be a patient. I would not consider going anywhere else because Dr Upton is the very best! Dr. Upton and his practice and employees are like family! Thank you for allowing to give my thoughts on :Dr Upton and his practice! Sandra B Wood
