★★★★★ 11 months ago The team at Digital Dentistry at Southpoint are so incredibly warm and accommodating. From reception to checkout, the full team is to be highly commended. The facility has the best equipment, and you probably won’t have to be referred to anywhere else. Most important to me are options for people with anxiety about going to the dentist: thank goodness for sedation!

I just became a new patient at Digital Dentistry at Southpoint and I gotta say the name is accurate. They have all the latest dental equipment, it’s very high tech. Not only do they have high-end tools, but they also provide a service I’ve never experienced at a dentist, or anywhere for that matter. They perform a check for oral cancer. I was surprised and impressed. And it was nice to know they didn’t find any warning signs of cancer. Dr. Gary and his staff were professional and very nice. I was totally impressed. If you’re looking for a top-notch dentist in Durham, North Carolina, go visit Dr. Gary Schlotterer at Digital Dentistry at Southpoint. I highly recommend them.

3 weeks ago- I moved back to Durham a couple of years ago and had to find all new dentists and doctors etc. Luckily I found Dr. Schlotterer at Digital Dentistry at Southpoint and I’ve been going back ever since. On my last visit, my hygienist Kim was fantastic, one of the best I’ve had work on my teeth. I never felt any pain or even a little discomfort. The environment is comfortable and I recommend this convenient location for anyone.
