Read on to learn what our patients are saying about us!
There is a reason Dr. Nelson has consistent 5-star reviews-he is a talented, knowledgeable, and caring dentist. I became a patient of Dr. Nelson’s office after an emergency and some previous unsavory experiences at other practices. Dr. Nelson has worked with me to do a full oral plan, explained everything in detailed and has fixed everything in my mouth including placing an implant. I never had any pain, felt any anxiety, or had any concerns. Highly recommend Dr. Nelson and his staff of talented professionals.
I highly recommend Benton & Nelson Dentistry. I have anxiety issues, and an over-active gag reflex, and recently needed some work done on my back teeth. I chose to be sedated, and the experience was great ...well, as much as I can remember! Dr. Nelson was extremely informative, and professional, and his team monitored me safely throughout the procedure. As uncomfortable as I am with going to any dentist, my experience with Dr. Nelson, and his team and office staff has been amazing!
Very friendly staff. Dentist is very personable and understands patients fears and great at putting your mind at ease. Best dental practice by far
Benton and Nelson is a very friendly and professional dentist. They will always greet with a smile. Also great communication with all appointments.
I've been going to Dr Benton for many years. I've never had a bad experience. Now I see Dr. Nelson. He and the whole staff are very professional and they make you feel comfortable and relaxed. I highly recommend.
Teeth cleaned by Cher, pain free and gentle. Dr Nelson then examined my teeth gently and thoroughly, then gave me the good news that my teeth are in good shape. I collected my goody bag and left. Easy peasy. There was no waiting. I always recommend Dr Nelson. He's the best!
The entire staff shows great concern for the patient’s comfort and well-being. Very impressive!
Friendly staff, my hygienist was great, eased my anxieties.
I haven’t been to the dentist in a while. I’ve got such a bad history of terrible anxiety, because other dentist kept working even though I could feel everything with tears running down my cheek! I’ve actually put off going to the dentist because I’ve never been anywhere that truly took care of me so I only really went when I had a problem. I put my kids dental care above my own. Now, I have a lot of work to get my smile back. I say all this because it’s truly hard to find a dentist that sits down, talks to you, gives you all his/her attention, doesn’t make you feel bad/guilty about it, is understanding but educates you about your options, listens to your concerns, gives you options as well as a plan, and does work with you and your insurance to help in being able to afford the care your teeth need so you can get that smile back! He offers sedation dentistry as little or as much as needed for even simple filings. Good dentists are needles in a haystack, so when you find one as good as he is, you will be comforted to know you found the right one! Even down to the office staff and dental hygienist were so polite, patient and kind. I’m not scared or anxious anymore about going to the dentist.
I was a stranger in agonizing pain, and they took me in like I was a long-time patient and cured my problem right away. I can't say enough good about Dr. Nelson and his whole team -- skilled professionals one and all. Thank you to the max!
Great office staff and Dr Nelson is both professional and personable. Would definitely suggest this practice
From the moment I walked into Benton and Nelson, I knew I was in a very special place. Every person I encountered was professional, yet warm and inviting. I had no wait time, I was introduced to everyone, and all procedures were explained in detail. I was made to feel very comfortable and encouraged to ask for whatever I wanted or needed. I was listened to and treated with the upmost respect. I simply cannot say enough about how pleased I was with the entire experience. Dr. Nelson is a warm and personable person as well as a wonderful professional. I cannot thank the entire group enough.
This is a great Dentist! Every single person there is extremely nice and pleasant to deal with and I could not ask for a better Dentist!
Dr. Nelson and his staff are amazing!! They make going to the dentist a very pleasant experience!!
Just great. Had an emergency situation with half of a tooth literally breaking off. They not only got me in immediately to to diagnose the damage, but also started the crown up thru the temporary right then and there. That's service folks.
Super fast and friendly service. Very nice office and helpful staff. 10/10 will go again.
I love it’s peaceful and tranquility. You feel like you are friends for many years and the Dr. he is sweet and explains everything in detail also the technician . Technician she just had a baby boy see is a darling and amazing. I was referred by a co-worker , I moved from Miami and the good things she said about the office and personnel. Will recommend 100%
After years of being through rough experiences with dentists, I can finally say that I have found my forever dentist! Everyone makes you feel comfortable and makes sure that you understand everything. This is a great place hands down!
Excellent exam and cleaning. Hygienist was very thorough and made the process seem much less painful and less a dreaded process. The excellent relationship with Dr. and Hygienist ,as well as other staff, made the visit more like a friendly visit with friends than a medical appointment to be dreaded from time to time.
Very calm and clean atmosphere and the staff were absolutely fantastic with me. They handled my concerns and answered all of my questions thoroughly, this is a very solid choice for any dental work you may need.
I’ve been going to Dr Benton for 40+ years and NEVER had a bad experience. This visit was my first with Dr Nelson and am happy to say I’ll be continuing my relationship with the practice. Dr Nelson was very informative about my current problem and very professional. The whole experience for me was quite positive.
Dr. Benton, Dr. Nelson and all of the staff here are amazing. They are very personable and friendly. They truly care about you as an individual and about your dental health. They will take the best care of you! If you are looking for a dentist office this is a great place for you!
Wonderful experience! Staff & Dr. Nelson were awesome!
Great place for all your dental needs! I’ve been going here for over 25 years!!!
Great caring staff! They always take care if you.
It was absolutely perfect, from the staff to the doctor. Now, mind you, I haven't been worked on yet. But, I was impressed and have all the confidences going forward after talking to the doctor.
I have the worst anxiety with dentistry but I was made to feel comfortable. It was a nonjudgmental zone and things were explained to me step by step. All my questions were answered. This is definitely a place to go whether or not you have anxiety.
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.

Professional and excellent dentist; high quality care
Great staff! Very accommodating! They even let you pick your own music!
Dr. Nelson is a wonderful dentist- kind, thorough, and made me feel completely at ease! His staff is wonderful as well. I highly recommend this office!
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.
