"My very first visit to Dental Works was to get a painful tooth extracted. It went amazingly well.. Dr. Spurgas was wonderful and his assistant, Natasha, was absolutely wonderful. I have lived in the Hickory area for 10 plus years and wish I had heard about Dental Works back then. But better late than never. I went in yesterday for my "new patient" appt. I can not tell you how empressed I was. I have never had such an indepth exam from a denal outfit in my life. From Jessica, who took individual x-rays of my teeth to Michele who examined each and every tooth and then the one and only amazing Dr. Spurgas who told me the treatment plan they figured out for me. I've got a lot of work to be done but believe me I know I'm in capable hands with my team and Dental Works."- T.C. / Google / Mar 02, 2018
"Great place. Friendly and knowledgable staff. I am from Chapel Hill, and I love this place more than UNC Chapel Hill Dental a lot more, because the staff are a lot more personal. Even though they don't have the most up to date equipment, my insurance works with them while UNC does not."- M.Z. / Google / Jan 28, 2018
