JOIN THE FAMILY TODAY

After working with Doctor Melcher and his staff he has completely restored the health of my teeth from years of poor dentistry. Everyone in that office is so kind and helpful and they really do have your health as priority 1. I absolutely recommend Dr. Melchers’ office to everyone I know, I have never had such amazing dental!”

I have visited many of the dentists in the Raleigh area, but Dr. Simon Melcher stands above them all. He was recommended to me by my family physician after trying out many different others to no avail. He has excellent helpful staff, courteous and hard working hygienists, and he himself is not only gentle, listening, caring but excellent in his work. I can give no higher praise than that of what I have for Dr. Melcher and his staff. They have set a standard very high and I am thankful to have found them.”

Great place. We recently relocated from CA and have been looking for experienced and professional dentists. From the receptionist to the dental assistant to Dr. M, everyone had been kind, respectful, knowledgeable and experienced in their respectful field. First visit we got an athletic mouth guard for my daughter. They do the guards for the NC State athletes and really this was the best and quickest experience we’ve had. The assistant took the impression but Dr. M was there checking on everything. Mouth guard was $100. Their other services are also within very reasonable price range.”

Dr. Rodriguez, my profound thanks and deep gratitude to you and the staff for the amazing way you have all treated me. It almost brings me to tears to feel the compassion and warmth I’ve seen on every visit these past few months. The fear and dread has been replaced with the knowledge that you each care deeply and I can put myself in your capable hands. I am so thankful my prayers were answered in such an amazing way.

Kind and caring practice all around from the receptionist staff to the hygienist to Dr. Rodriguez. Normally afraid of going to the dentist as I have sensitive teeth but staff helped me to feel nothing but calm the entire time. Would highly recommend!!”

Spot on with entire team, best place for dental work, highly recommend.”

Dr. Rodriguez was recommended to me and I could not be more pleased. The entire staff is helpful and very attentive to my needs. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone looking for a dentist. Thank You !!”

My family and I have been coming to see Dr. Melcher and Dr. Rodriguez for many years for all of our dental needs. I recently had to have an old filling replaced. Dr. Rodriguez explained in detail what was going to be done- I had no unease whatsoever, felt no discomfort and was done in about 25 minutes. I cannot say enough great things about this practice- from Cathy at the front desk to Jennifer for routine cleanings to both Drs. Melcher and Rodriguez- truly top-notch!”

My crown fell off that another dentist put on. Cathy got me in the same day and she is always extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Melcher explained the options and the crown was cemented back on in less than 30 minutes. Dr. Melcher is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. He is honest, trustworthy, explains things, doesn’t try to upsell, and I’ve never had a problem with any of the work he has done. I’ve only seen Dr. Rodriguez once and she was great too. I would highly recommend.”

Very helpful staff. Greatly appreciated their patience with me. Dr Melcher was so gentle & explained everything – This fearful patient especially appreciated that! Thankful for their willingness to answer all my questions. A visit for a cracked crown is not the best time to try a new dentist. So, thank you Dr Melcher & staff for a very positive experience!!”

I had the opportunity to get a cavity filled, my first one. I was nervous. The staff took wonderful care of me, Dr. Melcher explained everything that was about to take place before he did any work. I felt no pain, it was quick and I was out of there in no time. The staff and Doctor here really do care about their patients.”

It has been several years since I went to a dentist, until today. The experience was top notch, from checking in all the way to checking out. The staff are professional, understanding, and very experienced. I drive an hour to get there, and it is so worth it. Dr. Melcher found I have a cavity, and he took the time to explain how he will fix it, and answered all of my questions. I left The Raleigh Dentist office with assurance & looking forward to my next visit. I am in good hands with Dr. Melcher & his staff. I would highly recommend this dentist office to everyone! To sum it up, I had a “wow” experience!”

Dr. Melcher has developed with me the same trust the prior practice and I enjoyed. The office is friendly, professional, personable and caring. Unquestionable the best dental practice in Raleigh, IMHO.”

I’ve been going to this dentist since I was 6 years old so about 14 years. He’s great and doesn’t try to push you to do expensive procedures unless they are really necessary! He really cares about his patients. My parents and little sister go there too.”

Me and my family have been patients of Dr. Melcher for years. The whole entire office is great! From the front office to the dental assistants, every one does a great job! Very patient and professional. We love having our oral hygiene needs met here and appreciate the great service. Thanks!”

Dr. Melcher and the staff are great to work with. They’re very transparent and thorough in their explanations about the procedures and costs. When creating a treatment plan, they work with you to develop a feasible plan of action instead of simply dictating what they’re going to do next. Great experience all around.”

I hate doctors and dentists. Hate needles and drills and the like. Melcher and staff take the time to understand problems and empathize with problems. I called on a Thursday with a cracked tooth, and the worked with me to get in quickly for fix. Knew my fears, and kept me calm and never made me uncomfortable. Very, very great staff!!!”

I love that I get a serious answer to my questions. I get a full explanation even when I don’t know the questions to ask, as was the case when Dr Melcher informed me about how the med for osteoporosis could affect me. Kudos to Jennifer: professional and calming. Friendly and professional Dr. Rodriguez. Thanks to the whole staff for their friendliness!!!

I’m stumbled upon this dentistry office as a was doing a google search for dentists that were near downtown, Raleigh. I’m so pleased. Firstly, the customer service was great! Everyone was smiling, pleasant, and helpful, and went the extra mile. Good customer service is so rare these days. I was very impressed with the good vibes.

The Lord is watching over me and He is sending me angels who watch out for my dental health. Please dear Lord bless everybody working in that office in ways beyond understanding and make this dental practice prosper in every way. I feel in safe hands being fully and professionally taken care of by them. Please, dear Lord, remember them all with your infinite blessings. So be it. Amen.

Love this practice! I have been receiving my dental care at this site for over 24 years. Every staff member that I have met is highly skilled, caring, professional. I can tell that the practice keeps up with current dental practices as I have watched the practice evolve with the profession. Would love to give a special thanks to Drs. Simon Melcher & Emily Rodriguez and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, my current “team”, but really everyone has been great beginning with my first dentist – Dr. Turner. Recently my parents moved to Raleigh & they have joined the practice as well based on my kudos. They are very happy with their choice. The beautiful environment in which you practice adds an “extra nice” touch. Very soothing place to receive dental care.

In July I saw my dentist because of an unusual feeling in my lower jaw x-rays were taken but they were unable to discover any problems. Then in December the feeling returned only worse. I saw my dentist again and now he was able to detect a problem of an absess and a root canal was needed. I am not happy with the cost of the visit in July and not detecting the problem at that time.

We have been patients at this practice since day 1. We first joined the practice because Dr Turner is a personal friend, however we have remained at this practice because of the professionalism of all the staff – all the time! Everyone gets anxious about their dental appts. Thank you Jennifer, Dr Melcher, Dr Rodriguez and all the staff for being so wonderful!

When I found Dr. Melcher and his staff several years ago, I knew that my days of fearing the dentist were over! Dr. Melcher and his staff are kind, calm, patient and always take the time to explain every step of the way what to expect. I have dreaded the dentist for years and only wish that I’d found this type of professionalism and care in a dentist a long time ago. But I’m in good hands now and it’s truly a blessing! 🙂

I have visited many of the dentists in the Raleigh area, but Dr. Simon Melcher stands above them all. He was recommended to me by my family physician, Dr Flick, after trying out many different others to no avail. He has excellent helpful staff, courteous and hard working hygienists, and he himself is not only gentle, listening, caring but excellent in his work. I can give no higher praise than that of what I have for Dr. Melcher and his staff. They have set a standard very high and I am thankful to have found them.

I have been going to this dentist for many years and they are always so friendly to me and my family. We have gotten to know pretty much every one in the office pretty well and Im always reminded of how much they truly care about us. We got married way back in May and just had an appointment this last week and they remembered to ask how the wedding went. I love that they make you feel like family rather than just another customer. My seven year old son looks forward to going to the dentist because he says “everyone is so happy and nice to him and it makes him feel special”. I highly recommend this business!.

I could not ask for a more thorough check up and cleaning. Always made to feel comfortable and everyone is very friendly. Best dental regular experiences I have had and I have been using Implant & General Dentistry since 2008.

Hadn’t been to the dentist in years other priorities had to come first. So I was very reluctant on my first appointment. I was not berated for my past. We started from that day on. Dr. Rodriguez & her staff couldn’t have been nicer. Dr. Rodriguez put together a plan to maximize my insurance. Provided procedure needed list in line of importance. Had my first procedure today. Great experience.

I lost a crown on Saturday night and was very pleased that Dr. Melcher could see me early Monday morning. He is always very gentle and thorough. He also does a fantastic job of explaining what he is doing. He was able to reattach the crown in a very short amount of time. All of the assistants and front desk staff are very professional and friendly. I really enjoy going to visit Dr. Melcher and everyone else at the office as well.

I have been coming to this site for years, ever since I was very little, as well as my 4 siblings Catherine, Jenny, Lydia and Peter! Dr. Rodriguez is so kind and can fix anything. Highly recommend this dentist office to anyone!

So let me start off by saying I usually HATE going to the dentist and put it off as long as I can but I slipped in the shower and cracked my front tooth in half .my usual doctor couldn’t fit me in until Wednesday and I couldn’t wait that long so I went on a search and came across this place. Thank the Lord I did Dr. Rodriguez and the staff fit me in easily and made my experience absolutely fantastic. Not too mention they actually cared what happened too me and even offered a blanket if the office was too cold. I’m bringing my entire to this dentistry! Keep up the GREAT WORK LADIES. Also my teeth look better than the did before!

I love this practice! Dr. Rodriguez is my personal dentist . She goes above and beyond to make sure her patients are cared for . She has the most professional demeanor and yet is so personal and comforting in her relationships with her patients. I never feel rushed and she takes the time to make sure I am fully informed of any options available to me, and makes sure I am always comfortable and pain free! Nora , my dental assistant is also one of the very best, I almost feel like I am walking into the home of a friend when I go to their office. The whole staff , from Cathy at front desk to everyone you may see down the hallway are all welcoming . I had a dentist back in the 80s in SC . I felt if I could ever find another dental practice with that kind of personal interaction, I would be both delighted and surprised. I had never found it ,,,,, until now…. I have found it in this wonderful practice that goes above and beyond to offer their patients the very best in dental practices!!

I have visited many of the dentists in the Raleigh area, but Dr. Simon Melcher stands above them all. He was recommended to me by my family physician after trying out many different others to no avail. He has excellent helpful staff, courteous and hard working hygienists, and he himself is not only gentle, listening, caring but excellent in his work. I can give no higher praise than that of what I have for Dr. Melcher and his staff. They have set a standard very high and I am thankful to have found them. I am now with Dr Simon Melcher. This guy is amazing. Dr Melcher is a man of such a sensitive conscience, perfect in what he does, really professional in everything and he does it perfectly and makes sure you don’t leave until you feel so comfortable and pain-free. Dr Simon Melcher is my hero. I pray for him as much as I can. Please give him a try and I am pretty sure you will be going there regularly as needed and you will feel completely pain-free.

During my 35+ years as a patient in this dental practice, I have never had a bad experience. The office staff are friendly, courteous and helpful giving a wonderful first impression to anyone walking in the door or calling. My dental hygienists through the years have all been kind, caring professionals who have done a great job cleaning & assessing my teeth, providing relevant dental education & answering my questions. My dentists over this same time period (Vic Turner, Simon Melcher, Emily Rodriguez) have always answered my questions, explained needed dental procedures & calmed my nerves on the day of a procedure – always with a caring manner. I would recommend this practice to anyone with no reservations. I also like that “my team” is consistent from visit to visit so I feel like they really know me and my dental history. Excellent team – great service!

I always have a wonderful experience with Niurka. She’s gentle and so personable. Kudos to Louise for taking such good care of my 4 year old’s teeth. Lilli was brave and let Dr. Melcher check her teeth. Dr. Melcher is wonderful- very thorough. Great practice! Also, thanks to the new lady (forgot her name already) who helped keep Lilli occupied while I was getting my teeth cleaned :).

Very good experience with Dr. Melcher and his assistance in getting a crown. He took time to explain the procedure and answer a number of questions on the technology. Considering I was getting a crown, the experience was positive. Cathy, at the front desk was very polite and helpful on some other questions. Certainly will recommend.

My hygienist was absolutely delightful. She was kind and had a joyful tone of voice. Although I was in a rush to get to work, my hygienist still performed a thorough and professional cleaning during my appointment. Dr. Melcher was articulate, friendly, and explained to me in words that I could understand regarding my dental health. I love how the office is situated in a unique green, natural space at Park Place Professional Center.

I have never had a bad experience here and I have been going to this office for nearly 28 years. I always highly recommended them to anyone that is looking for a new dentist.

Looking for a new dentist, I researched reviews, found this practice. Had my 1st apt today with Dr Rodriguez who was very professional, informative, patient. Do ask for directions ahead of time as the office is located in a professional building on busy Six Forks Rd without the office ID on it. Positive initial experience!

I was totally delighted with my experience at Dr. Melcher’s office. Jennifer did a thoroughly professional job cleaning my teeth, and Dr. Melcher outlined a very reasonable and timely plan for future dental work. I recommend this dental office and its staff highly.

I am a fairly new patient of  Drs. Melcher and Rodriguez and I can’t say enough about the dentistry.  Dr. Melcher is engaging and truly wants to know what is going on with his patients and how he can help. He answers any question you have of him without hesitation and he has a way of not allowing you to get ahead of yourself so that you get anxiety about anything that you may need done. Jen is one of the Dental Hygienists and she is a godsend.  She’s has the most gentle touch when it comes to dealing with patients like me who need extensive cleanings and who have braces, each time I’ve gone in she was so patient with me and I couldn’t even tell she was in my mouth working.  I highly recommend this dentistry to anyone.”

The dentists here are wonderful. I have severe dental anxiety. Dr. Melcher took his time. No rushing. He and his assistant were patient and kind. He pulled a molar. His shots didn’t hurt at all! I had no pain at all during this visit. They’re  keepers!”
