Patient Testimonials

"I have tried several dentists here in Durham, and not one of them meets the standards that Dr. Clifton and his staff do. I have always been scared to go to dentists, but do you know I am not anxious or afraid with him? He is gentle and caring and makes an effort with you, and you can tell his staff really cares about you. The way they treat you is not something you can fake; I have recommended them to everyone I know, and at my husband’s job, being that we have Delta Dental, I mentioned to everyone there if they did not care for theirs or were looking for one he was well worth it. I will not ever leave him so KUDOS to you DR. CLIFTON & OFFICE! I love you guys, and my teeth do, too."

"We've been patients of Tom and his great team for many years (2 kids, now grown, 2 adults). They are friendly, easy to work with, very professional, and of course provide great dental care. I recommend them all the time to newcomers in the Durham area!"

– Dan T.

"I recently chipped a tooth. While it wasn't serious, it was stressful to me. Cheryl worked with me and found a time the next day I could come in and miss the least amount of time of work. Dr. Clifton and his staff were able to fix the chip that afternoon. I appreciate the effort his staff made to accommodate me on short notice."

– Ruth B.

"My family of 4 has been under the expert care of Dr. Clifton and his awesome staff for over 14 years. Cheryl and Susan run the admin side expertly, with confidence, skill and most importantly, superb customer service. I cannot tell you how many times they both have gone above and beyond for my entire family. Our hygienist, Carolyn, provides superior oral health care each and every time. She is knowledgeable, friendly and very skilled. I look forward to seeing her every 6 months. I consider her a friend outside the clinic as well. Dr. Clifton is an outstanding dental professional. His office is high-tech without being overboard, comfortable and quiet. We chat about our families in addition to getting down to dental business! Dr. Clifton is always willing to do what it takes for his patients. Do yourself a favor and give them a call!"
