What Our Patients Are Saying
We have been patients of Dr. Lisa and Dr. Greg for over 27 years. What makes them one of the best family dental care providers in the area is not just Dr. Greg and Dr. Lisa but the entire team. From the moment you walk in till your leave their office you are always treated with friendly and professional staff.
Normally, I don’t write reviews but in regards to Preston Dental Center I had to take this opportunity to let folks know this practice is AMAZING. As a patient, my anxiety level can be through the roof. The staff is so patient and accommodating which helps tremendously. I visit the practice every 3 months and my appointments require nitrous oxide, topical anesthetic, sometimes even novocain (yeah I’m a bit high maintenance). But, regardless of my need they have NEVER made me feel unappreciated or unwelcome. Lorna, my hygienist, is SPECTACULAR. I secretly and lovingly refer to her as “The Beast”. When she’s done with my appointment my teeth look and feel awesome. Because of her my teeth are in the best condition they have ever been. My teeth are real, white and FABULOUS. Thank you Preston Dental Center. ❤️
I was there yesterday getting dental work done. I felt safe with Covid-19 measures in place and Dr Isaac was wonderful. I have been going there over 20 years. Staff is great and they seem to have latest tech dental equipment in office.
I was out of state and came down with a terrible toothache. I called on a Saturday, just hoping for some advice because I was in tremendous pain. Dr Greg called me very soon after I’d left the message and he was very compassionate. He phoned me in an antibiotic and even located a dentist he knew local to the area. This is the kind of care I've become accustomed to at this dentistry. Not only that but their technology and skills match their care and compassion.
Let’s face it, the dentist’s office is rarely on the list of anyone’s favorite places to go. For me, finding a dentist who is compassionate and kind is just as important as finding a competent one. Not easy to do, but definitely can be located at Preston Dental Center. Dr. Lisa knows what she’s doing, no question. She speaks to you respectfully and delivers the truth, but does so with kindness and respect. She really listens to your concerns and puts your fears to rest. The dentist’s chair is one place where we have to hand control of ourselves NC over to somebody else. Not an easy thing to do! Not an easy thing to do! But I trust Dr. Lisa to take care of me when I’m in her chair.

Top-Notch Dentistry From Cary's Top Dentists
At Preston Dental Center, we want each patient to feel like they’re the most important patient we’ll see that day. We take time to meet patients at their level and treat them as individuals, not just a procedure or a set of teeth. That’s true whether you’re a parent with young children, a tween or teen, or a senior who is finally getting around to making the smile changes you need.
To deliver outstanding care, we’ve stocked our office with patient-friendly technology like the Anutra pain-free anesthesia system, digital scanners, and same-day crown equipment using CAD/CAM technology. Plus, you’ll always have your choice of relaxing sedation options if you need help to rest easy in our dental chair. We offer both inhaled sedation with laughing gas and oral sedation using a small pill.
Our team is ready to provide the best comprehensive care possible to every patient. Though we can handle all your family’s basic needs like cleanings and exams, we are skilled in more complex treatment like smile design, full-mouth rehabilitation, Invisalign, sleep dentistry, and implant restoration. In other words – if you need it, we’re here to help.

At Preston Dental Center, you can expect just high quality service, a family feel and expert care.
One of the primary things about Preston Dental is that they actually care about you as not only their patient, but as a person. I would say anyone that wants to have a dentist that actually cares about you and your life, Preston Dental is probably the place for you.
You will be in a comfortable and safe environment. You can be assured that you will have excellent results because the doctors care and they fit their work towards your needs. And what you get is what you'd like.
You can trust Dr. Mayes. He will give you his honest opinion about the condition of your teeth, and if you agree to get it done, you know Dr. Mayes will do his best job. I am the perfect example of it, that everything he has done for me, he has done the best and he has done sincerely. So I go home, very happy, with peace of mind that everything went well, I was treated well and the condition of my teeth is excellent.
You're never going to feel like you're walking into a stingy, very cut and dry medical practice where it's everything's all white and you feel very sterile and things like that. And if you do have dental anxiety, I think that their willingness to explain procedures to you definitely helps to put your mind at ease.
At Preston Dental Center, you can expect a friendly and professional approach from day one, and you can be confident that they'll bring your smile back.
Common Questions From Our Patients
Each person’s teeth are different, so treatment time can vary. We usually tell patients that Invisalign treatment will take around 12 months. We’ve had many patients complete their treatment in that length of time with excellent results. The more consistently you follow the instructions for wearing your teeth aligners, the shorter your treatment will be.
Dental implants are small posts that serve as replacement teeth roots. Today, they are usually made from medical-grade titanium because this metal will completely fuse with your jawbone once the implants are inserted. When the implants are ready to support new teeth, we can then attach crowns, bridges, or dentures to restore any missing teeth.
We always recommend using a toothbrush with soft bristles, as hard and even medium bristles can damage your gums if you’re not careful. Also, be sure to buy a brush that is the right size for your mouth. If your mouth is small, then select a brush with a smaller head, and if your mouth is large, choose a brush with a larger head, if that’s comfortable for you.
Yes! We have a doctor on call at all times, so never hesitate to give us a call if you are in pain! We will work with you to get you out of pain as quickly as possible. We even offer sedation dentistry so that you can relax while we work. We can treat every type of dental emergency, so don’t wait!
