Had such a great experience at Lifetime dental. They were able to get me in for a cleaning the same day I called and whenever I went in I ended up having three cavities ( two more then I knew about from going somewhere a year earlier) anyways, they were able to take care of my cavities while I was there and were sooo much cheaper then the dentist I went to prior. I will defiantly be back in 6 months :)-Thanks again y'all Amanda N.

I could not be happier with my experience with Lifetime Dental. The entire staff is so kind and supportive. Every person takes extra time to make you feel comfortable and make sure you receive the best care. I had all four of my wisdoms teeth pulled here. It was extremely quick and painless and recovery was a breeze. I will continue here for all my dental needs and am very thankful I ended up at this office.

The office staff is wonderful, clean, organized they have a cozy fireplace, that you do not think that you are in a dental office. Lauren the office manager was very helpful having all my paperwork ready when I got there, and check out was a breeze. They have a therapy dog named Ava who is sweet that you can pet and hold while waiting. Highly recommend this dentist you will feel that you are in a hotel with all the amenities they have. Thank you for your WONDERFUL service!!!

Excellent experience! Everything from check-in, to x-rays, to cleaning, and consult. Everyone was very friendly, professional, communicated well, and did a great job. Ava seemed a little nervous, but I'll just have to get to know her better.

Lifetime is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL facility! Everyone was professional and friendly throughout my entire experience. Lauren was so welcoming and helped me understand all of my insurance benefits. She also gave me several different options for treatment plans and took her time explaining each one. I would highly recommend Dr. Gudger and his team!

Had an absolutely flawless visit here at lifetime family dental, I like most don’t like visiting the dentist but everyone was so helpful and kind! I especially want to point out the hygienist that cleaned my teeth to extraordinary perfection, Gerry. He was so great and I trust him with all of my dental needs!!! 5 stars!

Came to Raleigh on a business trip and needed an emergency tooth extraction after a massive infection. The staff was wonderful, unbelievable in fact. Dentists make me nervous, but they made me feel at ease and calm. No pain at all. Highly recommend coming to Lifetime Family Dental!

Jerry is the hygienist and we all know that the hygienist is the most important person at the dentist!! He’s kind, sensitive and meticulous. The office is clean and punctual. Definitively the place to go.

First off, Lifetime is the only facility in the area that is open until 3 pm on a Friday afternoon!! They were honest and up front with me when I called that they had another patient at the time and weren't sure how soon they could see me. I was in major, major pain from a tooth that chipped and the pulp was exposed. I tried to see if another place was open near by and of course they werent!!! I decided to take my chances with them and sat maybe 20 minutes total ,once done with my paperwork, before I was called back to be seen!!! I was asked what brought me in, she took an xray, and even before I saw the dentist, Ashley(sp?)was able to tell me basically what was wrong and potentially what my options were. She was able to verify with doctor what the options were and with my insurance, was able to give me estimates for the 2 options.He got started on the work, and finished pretty quickly. I found everyone at the facility very kind and friendly!! From the front desk, to the doctor!! They were concerned about my pain, my comfort and the potential of any anxiety I might have!!! I felt comfortable in their care!!! And I can tell anyone, I come from bad experiences growing up and going to the dentist which could have made me fearful for life to go to the dentist!!! As of now and this visit, all I can do is give them my praise for their care for me during my visit, which lasted past their closing time and no one was rude or angry to me for that!!!I will see how things will be going forward at future visits, but for now, all I can do is say, Thank you Ashley and Dr. Gudger for allowing me to have a pain free, comfortable weekend !!!

I called this morning and needed an appt ASAP for pain. Two hours later I was in the office being seen. Dr. Gudger was very thorough and very reassuring. His dental assistant, Frankie, was also very helpful. I highly recommend this practice.

I have been to LFD several times and they have been extremely flexible in scheduling. Very clean facility with very nice amenities. My hygienist has always been Jerry. Jerry is an extremely friendly and knowledgeable young man. Jerry always explains what he is doing and why. Going the dentist is not my most favorite activity but Jerry keeps me comfortable and he is always kind and smiling. Dr. Gudger is a true professional and Jerry completes his team of excellent staff members. Highly recommended dental facility.
