      THE FAST FOOD OF DENTAL WORKThe worst dentist I have ever been to. Went here last year and they said I had 7(!) cavities. Mistakenly I let them fill these. Since then I have started seeing an actual professional dentist who have had to remove several of these fillings because they were so poorly done. On top of that I have experienced nerve damage in the molars that were drilled at Total Smiles. What I really needed was gum work done at a periodontist and Total Smiles said nothing to me about my receding gum line, they just filled spots that should have been covered by my gums. I am now having to have those removed and get periodontic;dr very poor work that caused me more health problems in the long run

      I called the same day and they seen me the same day. Very professional and friendly. As a new pregnant patient I am picky about who is taking care of me. But the welcome 🤗 just sucked me in and I felt like I was going to be cared for correctly & they understood the assignment. Thank you 🙏

      My overall experience with Total Smiles was great. Tina at the front desk was very efficient whenever I needed assistance or had any questions regarding my treatment plan. My dental assistant Marcus made my fear of getting some extractions less of a worry. Dr. Cook and Dr. Cohen are both awesome! Thank you total smiles.

      Front desk staff is always pleasant. The dentist removed a tooth a year ago and i have caught an infection in the same area three times since the tooth was removed. They didn’t check to see what was causing the infection to continue to come back over and over again just continues to give me antibiotics! I will Never return again!

      I’ve gone to Total Smiles for my dental work…. it’s very convenient and right on the bus line. The professionalism from the front desk ladies, to the dental assistants, all the way to the dentists themselves is amazing. They made me feel very comfortable and explained the process to the extent to where I understood exactly what procedures were being done. My overall experience with this company was amazing.

      Ashley who was my hygienist today did such a wonderful job on my teeth. I have gone in for cleanings before with other dentists in the area of Goldsboro and always come out with yellow teeth still.. I did not have any any kind of whitening done she just cleaned my teeth and I felt so good afterward .
