Read on to learn what our patients are saying about us!
Love this office! The staff is so friendly. Dr.Nelson is very nice and takes his time to really help you. I’m very pleased with this office.
I will start off by saying that I have had a really strong fear of dentists since I was a child and it never got any better as I got older. I had to take medication just to have my teeth cleaned. Until I found [Benton and Nelson]. Their staff is the best, they are so sweet and so very kind. They make you feel so comfortable and welcome. They explain every step of the way what they are going to do and when they are going to start. I saw Dr. Nelson and he is awesome, he takes his time going over your x-rays and explains what he sees. Then he examines you and gives you his recommendations. I have been to this office a couple of times and would recommend them to anyone..
Returned an emergency message on a holiday in less than 5 minutes.
Great professional dental treatment. Friendly dentist that is very knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks for all !
Having had horrible experiences with dental care in the past, I am an extremely apprehensive patient (at best). Choosing to come here turned out to be a wise decision on my part. Doctor Nelson, as well as his staff are truly top notch! Couldn't be happier.
My daughter has a deep-rooted fear of going to the dentist. We are so happy to have found Dr. Nelson! He and his staff are patient, supportive and caring. My daughter (she's a young adult) needed some fillings and opted to have sedation in order to minimize her anxiety and fear and the whole process was easy and painless. I am so grateful to Dr. Nelson for offering sedation dentistry because otherwise my daughter would likely not have gotten the cavities filled which would have led to even greater problems. If you are fearful or anxious about going to the dentist you MUST go see Dr. Nelson. You do not need to go the sedation route (and most patients probably don't) but it's nice to know this is an option for those with extreme anxieties.
The office was well decorated, very neat and clean. The office staff and dentist ....all friendly/helpful. I will recommend this dental practice to anyone looking for a good dentist.
Always a pleasant time. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Especially happy that they routinely run on time too.
Dr. Nelson is the absolute best dentist in the world. I drove all the way from Charlotte, that's an hour and a half, just to get my front tooth back and I love it! Thank you so much!
My recent office visit with Dr. Blake Nelson was great as always. He sees my 10 yr old daughter as well and she is completely comfortable with him and his staff. They provide the necessary care and don’t push for procedures that are not needed. I would recommend this dentist and all of his hygienist’ to anyone looking for a relaxed dental experience.
As a person with extremely sensitive teeth, I dread going to the dentist. It is always painful. I heard good things about Dr Nelson and decided to give him a try. Glad I did!
The hygienist was gentle yet thorough and even offered warm water to rinse with. She used a special toothpaste that left my teeth feeling clean and kept taking breaks to make sure I was ok. I was on the end of my chair the whole time waiting for "the zing" and it never happened.
They measured the amount of recession and bone loss as a baseline for future visits. Dr Nelson came in and looked at everything and asked if I had any questions or concerns. He took time to explain things and asked numerous times if he was explaining things well. It feels like a very "relational vs transactional" office.
Definitely won my business!
Excellent care, professional staff. Would recommend to others!
Staff and the Dr. Were the most kind people and very friendly with understanding situations needed, would definitely recommend to others.
A really good dentist everyone here does a great job and are very professional appointments are scheduled for your best times and they work with you very well I have never had a problem here and I have been coming here for more than 30 Year's
Staff is respectful and caring. No long waiting to be seen. Quick appointments. I have been going to this dentist office for years because of the quality care that they give. I have even referred other to this office.
This is such a wonderful dentist office! We have been going to Dr. Benton for 25 years and truly welcome Dr. Nelson to the practice. He is very thorough, kind and patient. I would highly recommend Dr. Nelson.
Wonderful experience for my very anxious teenager. Dr. Nelson and the entire staff could not have been any better. Everyone was patient, kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. I’m one grateful mom!
Wow! I am 53 years old and have dreaded the dentist my whole life until yesterday! I chose Benton and Nelson for sedation but after meeting them at the consultation I felt comfortable to try without it. I walked in and everyone was friendly and not just to me but to everyone! Dr. Nelson let me know I was in control and could stop at any moment by raising my hand. I didn’t have sedation and also no pain, no discomfort and no stress. They have changed my life. I am actually looking forward to my next cleaning. This after a lifetime of breaking out in a sweat, crying and missing appointments due to fear. Why did I wait so long to try a new dentist? If you are looking for a great dentist and staff who care, I urge you to make an appointment today! Your teeth will appreciate it!
I have entrusted my dental care with this office for 30+ years. First with Dr. Croxton, then with Dr. Benton and now with Dr. Nelson. Thank everyone in MY dentist office. I trust each one you, so much so, I've recommended others. Keep up the great service.
The best experience I’ve ever had with a dentist was with Dr. Nelson! My father, a home-bound, 98 yr old WWII vet, desperately needed his dentures adjusted and Dr.Nelson, went over and above board in helping us out. He was gracious enough to fix his dentures in my dad’s home, thereby not having to go out In these scary pandemic days! Dr. Nelson was more than eager to help, he was kind, thoughtful, very knowledgeable, extremely prompt and a pleasure to meet. I CANNOT recommend him enough! GREAT DENTIST!!
Continuing with Dr. Benton’s excellent level of patient care, Dr. Nelson is a top-notch, thorough, and caring dentist. From routine care to taking his time to explain recommended treatment, my family can count on Dr. Nelson for all of our dental needs.
Highly recommend this practice for anyone anxious about dental treatment or interested in sedation - wonderful experience!
Great dental office. Always enjoy getting my cleanings done here. The doctors are kind and my appointments are always thorough and easy.
Dr. Nelson is extremely caring and does excellent work! He is great at explaining what is needed and really takes the time to make you feel comfortable.
Great office, very clean, and take their time to keep everything disinfected and safe during Covid. The doctor is very nice and explains everything thoroughly. I never feel rushed during my visits. I would definitely recommend this office to family and friends.
Dr. Nelson is very kind and professional. We have only had great experiences in our interactions with him.

Dr. Nelson and staff are amazing!!! They made me feel very comfortable and well taken care of! Highly recommend! Honest and great staff and practice.
I saw Dr. Nelson for an emergency. He was very accommodating and thorough. He took time to explain what treatment I needed. I am very happy and will be referring family and friends to him as well.
Dr. Nelson is a great dentist. He is very skilled and cares a lot for his patients. He takes time to listen to you and is very gentle during the treatment. Highly recommended.
Dr. Nelson has a clear passion for dentistry and holds his work to the highest professional standards. As an individual, he is kind, professional, and straightforward. I would gladly entrust Dr. Nelson with my own dental care and that of my family.
We all grow up with some level of natural uneasiness going to the dentist, but as we get older, we find that this mostly unnecessary apprehension actually manifests itself into both uncomfortable and painful procedures from life’s wear and tear. At Benton & Nelson Family and Sedation Dentistry, these concerns are put at ease. I’ve experienced firsthand Dr. Nelson’s top-of-class dental skills in their first class facility.
Looking back, I wish I would have had this level of comfort and care throughout my lifelong dental experience. Moving forward, I know I won’t do it any other way.
Dr. Nelson really cares about his patients. He takes the time to explain every option and really wants what is best for you. He and his hygienists complete procedures and cleanings seamlessly, and the rest of his team is as nice as they could be!
This office is truly great. Dr. Nelson is so caring and takes his time to explain everything to me. Dr. Benton is super gentle! The hygienists who clean my teeth are awesome, and I love the people at the front desk! I like that this office is smaller and less busy. Everyone knows my name and I never have an issue with getting an appointment quickly.
I was suffering with toothache pain. I had not been to Blake Nelson before; however, he was able to work me in on an emergency basis. Put me at ease, discussed options and quick and long term plans. Very pleased.
Fantastic office! There is never any wait time and the hygienists are always gentle and thorough. All of the staff and doctors are very nice and the office is very clean and comfortable. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else!
I used to live in Winston-Salem but I moved to Raleigh several years ago. After trying several dentists in Raleigh I decided to switch back to Dr Benton's office. I didn't like the high pressure sales tactics of the other offices and felt more like a number than a person. The drive is well worth it!
Great place, I've been a patient here for over 4 years and I highly recommend. Very friendly staff!

I had put off going to the dentist for years because of bad experiences I had as a child. Dr Nelson and his staff were so nice during the first visit and explained to me what could be done to fix some of my teeth. I chose to be sedated and at my next visit I had all my teeth fixed without any memory at all! I would highly recommend Dr Nelson for sedation dentistry.
