Something's not right. 2/21/2012

I was a patient of Dr. Adams for 10 years and then of Dr. Cheek for nearly another 10. Both the dentists and the staff are highly skilled and the work is excellent. That's great. However, they've gotten greedy. They pulled a tooth that didn't need pulling, and the price of the finish work DOUBLED over the 90 days between the time of the estimate and the time I set the appointment for the work. I now have a new dentist. more

Consumer beware 7/24/2011

The good: Facilities and cleanup sessions. The bad: This practice is all about sales, and the general public has taken notice. After an annual cleaning, they suggested to have two crowns done. Consulted with an endodontist (Dr. Sheaffer, 5 stars) and found that only one tooth needed it. Husband has had identical experience in two occasions at this practice. more

Several Fillings 7/7/2010

Dr. Cheek is great! He and Lauren actually had to stop a couple of times during my 3-hour appointment to get fillings done, because they made me laugh so hard I couldn't keep my mouth open...I have never had that problem at a dentist's office before. Dr. Cheek and the rest of the staff are always friendly, and are really good about paying attention to what insurance will cover as well. I have definitely found my dentist in Raleigh. more

Rude 4/21/2010

worst experience I have ever had with a doctor’s office, not due to the medical service provided, but solely because of the incapacity of the staff to treat clients in a professional and polite manner. Cons: rude, inconsiderate staff more

Excellent overall dental care 7/28/2009

I've been seeing Dr. Craig Adams or over 2 years now. Initially frustrated with multiple needed procedures (redo of work already completed) I opted for a second opinion. Not only was the 2nd DDS more expensive, she praised Dr. Adams & team on their reputation, knowledge and experience. She also agreed with his findings. I moved forward with the procedures and am very pleased with the results. Very sensitive team of Dental hygienists who put you at ease. I highly recommend the team. Julie in North Raleigh. Pros: Very nice cosmetic results/little pain Cons: costly - but isn't all dental work? more

They saved me a lot of pain! 5/8/2009

They were practically closing the doors and turning out the lights when I desperately called for root canal help. They squeezed me in that night and made the pain go away. They could have easily turned me away, but could tell I was in obvious pain over the phone. Everyone there was very nice and supportive during my time of need. Incredibly nice staff..highly recommend this place!!! Pros: The best Cons: None more

Great Dentist 3/9/2009

Dr. Adams is a wonderful dentist and I highly recommend him and his great staff. He recently did a root canal for me and replaced an old filling. He was gentle and very professional. If you need a new dentist Dr. Adams and his team are top notch. more

Great dentist! No pain at all! 1/28/2009

Just had my tooth filled today at Dr. Adam's. I didn't feel a thing. You don't even feel the shots of novacain because he numbs your gums before giving you the shot. Terrific dentist especially if you're a wimp like I am about pain. Lisa Pros: No pain at all more

From the mouths of babes ... 1/19/2009

At a recent appointment with Dr. Adams, I showed him a close-up picture I had taken of my "five-and-three-quarters" year old daughter's front teeth. Picture 2 adult teeth shoving in behind 4 baby teeth, only one of which was remotely loose (and my daughter had been proudly working that one for at lease 3 weeks). "Should I be concerned?" I recall asking Dr. Adams. The following week, my daughter was comfortably ensconced in the dentist chair, a little nervous but also excited about the potential Tooth-Fairy loot to come. After it was all over, I asked her to tell me, in her words, why the dentist had to pull all those teeth .... "Well, if only one baby tooth got pulled out, the two grown-up teeth would not have space to grow in and they would be crowded with the other baby teeth. So Dr. Adams said we should take out four baby teeth. When he put the "sleepy juice" in my mouth it felt like a little pinch. And it kind of felt like just a little pinch when he was pushing my teeth to get them loose to make them come out. Then they gave me a little box to put the teeth in. And then the Tooth-Fairy got the teeth out of the box and put the money into my tooth pillow. She brought me $4.00 which makes eighty nickels and that's a lot of money!" From the "mom" observation side, not a tear was shown or a cry heard. Bottom line - Mom was more worried about the process than she was. Oh, and Dr. Adams, she wanted me to tell you, "I love you, Dr. Adams" so clearly the child is far from traumatized ;-). Pros: There are plenty of dentists close to where we live near downtown Raleigh, but my entire extended family drives more than 20 minutes just to see Dr. Adams - he is good! more

Dr. Cheek is a rare breed, a true find for our family 1/6/2009

Dr. Cheek preformed an unexpected bone graft on my husband late Friday afternoon and prescribed a pain pill for him. He had never taken pain pills before and reacted badly to them, I mean badly! We had to rush him to the hospital on Saturday night. On the way to the hospital, I called Dr. Cheek on his cell phone - he actually gave me the number in case of an emergency! I kept Dr. Cheek informed through out the night of my husbands' progress.We brought him home later that night. At 7:30 Sunday morning, Dr. Cheek called to check up on him. My husband developed a low grade fever on Sunday which I alerted Dr. Cheek. HE called every 2 hours until the fever subsided late Sunday night. He was such a comfort for me, not to say what it meant to my husband. Doctor's like Dr. Cheek are a rare find and revered when we do. We are fortunate to have him taking care of our family and definitely recommend him to everyone. We have repeated this story often with "gasps" and words of disbelief that there is someone like him around. Cannot praise this practice enough!! Thank you Dr. Cheek for all you did and still do. Pros: A practice that treats their patients as people with genuine care and concern. Cons: N/A more

Dr. Craig Q. Adams One Of The Best Dentist In Raleigh NC... 11/14/2008

This is my first written review. I typically do not look forward to dentist appointments however, the professional, respectable, hospitable and personable group at Dr. Craig Q. Adams office help make the necessary trips easier to comply with. On my last visit I had so much work done that Dr. Adams personally called my home later that evening to make sure all was well. Again I had lot of dental work done that day. I've never had a dentist to show this level of concern or commitment after I'd left the dentist office. As I thanked Dr. Adams then I thank he and his staff now. I still do not look forward to going to the dentist but if I have a dental need or concern there is no question; I am calling on Dr. Craig Q. Adams of Raleigh NC and so should you! Thank you Lena and Beverly, keep smiling. Pros: Pleasant Atmosphere, Soothing Music Available During Dental Services Cons: Depending On Your Location Distance May Be A Little Lengthy more

Excellent Dentist!! 10/29/2008

I look forward to going to Dr. Adams practice. The office and staff together create a warm, positive, comfortable, friendly atmosphere. I believe a happy staff is a reflection of it's employer. They are very punctual with appointments. I have great confidence in Dr. Adams to treat any dental problems I am having with very little or no pain. You never feel rushed. You feel like you have his whole attention when he is with you. I highly recommend him!!!! Pros: Friendly, happy staff, nice office, on time, very professional but takes time with you and listens Cons: none more

Back in Time Experience 8/7/2008

Dr. Craig and Adams dental practice is like a flashback to the years when dentists really tried to make you feel like you were their only patient, very important, listening intently to what you have to say and making sure they understand fully what YOU want done with your mouth. The experience is as close to pleasurable as one can say about going to a dentist. It is nice that there are dentists in the world that still practice that "good ole day" protocol. Their practice is one like many of us remember as the days when dentists truly cared for their patients and worked in "their best interest". Hats off to this practice! Pros: Lots!!!! Cons: None that I know of more

Great Experience 7/17/2008

Who would have thought a visit to the dentist could be so stress free. The atmosphere is very relaxing, it is clean, and the staff are all very pleasant. In the past I have always hated the dentist and had panic attacks at my appointments but Dr. Adams did everything he could to make sure I would be comfortable. The two appointments I had for fillings were by far the best experiences I have ever had at the dentist. I have refferred friends and family to Dr. Adams. more

Superb dental practice 7/10/2008

The entire practice of Dr. Adams and Dr. Cheek is first rate. Your experience there will be pleasant and comfortable, and the expertise of both the dentists and the staff is second to none. Analyze the language of the few negative reviews (only one at the time of this writing), and you will detect the reasons to disregard them. Consider the preponderance of superior reviews, both on citysearch and on other sites, and select this practice for both your routine care and your emergencies. My wife and I have received from this practice a variety of dental services -- routine care, emergency services, and advanced reconstructive care -- with treatments by both Dr. Adams and Dr. Cheek, as well as the better part of the staff. The breadth and excellence of the skill sets represented in this practice are extraordinary. Everyone in the office is friendly, patient and compassionate. The pricing for services is fair. Adams & Cheek is a unique and superior dental practice. Pros: Skill and experience of dentists and staff, comfortable facility, pleasant and efficient front desk team Cons: an occasional bad song on the radio, otherwise no cons! more

Dr. Adams and his staff have been very professional and friendly with me 7/8/2008

I invested significant time (and money) with Dr. Adams. And it was well worth it! He implanted 7 teeth and "redid" my upper front teeth. I can now eat normally. And I can can now smile without embarrassment. He made sure that every precaution was taken in order for the implants to be successful. The process was complicated and required many visits over several months. I was always treated with respect and Dr. Adams made sure that my concerns (and fears) were addressed. I have had two great dentists in my lifetime?Dr. Adams is one of them. Pros: Technically competent; very caring more

I don't understand the negative reviews 6/2/2008

I went to Dr. Adams and Cheek when I read the reviews and found them to be exactly what was mentioned in the positive reviews so it really surprises me about the negative reviews recently posted. Dr. Cheek and Dr. Jeffers made time to explain information about something my son needed on a personal level. They have always explained themselves and what they are doing. I have to have oral surgery and Dr. Cheek explained why he didn't want to do it and why I should see an oral surgeon. I appreciated his honesty and the time he took to discuss it in detail. I hate going to the dentist even though I have good teeth and am extremely picky about where I go and where I take my children, I am very impressed with them and their staff. As to the person who thinks we are all groupies if we like them I'm glad you are going somewhere else, I don't care to be insulted by the likes of you. Pros: Caring, flexible hours, nice environment more

Honest and Skilled Care 5/31/2008

Two years ago I had an infected tooth that was causing severe pain, and all the dentists that I called (who participated with my insurance plan) did not have openings any earlier than two months out. I was desperate to get my tooth fixed, and decided to look on Citysearch. I found several doctors, but found Dr. Adams and Cheek?s practice fairly close to work and with great ratings and reviews. I called and was very surprised that they could fit me in within a two day period! Upon calling, I verified that the practice did not participate with my insurance plan -but felt at this point that getting my tooth fixed in a timely manner was more important. Dr. Cheek asked a number of questions about my dental history. In the end, my tooth could not be saved and was removed. In comparison to other removals that I have had it went very smoothly, and I didn?t even feel the shots. I was so impressed with the care and expertise at my initial visit that I went back to get a comprehensive plan. Dr. Cheek prepared and shared the plan. The types and costs were more suitable and more thorough than other recommendations that I had received by a number other dentists. I have since had implants, bridges, and crowns completed by Dr. Cheek. Dr. Cheek worked with me to logically space out the work so that I was able to utilize available resources; such as my health care spending account. In my life I have had much and extensive dental work, by military dentists and civilian dentists throughout the states. I finally decided that I was sick of not having a good dental care. Dr. Cheek?s and Adam?s practice was not like any that I had been to in the past, the expertise and care that they provided was awesome. Dr. Cheek is a very skilled and caring dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Adams and Dr. Cheek?s practice to individuals that are serious about getting the right attention and care for their dental needs. Pros: very skilled, high expertise, compassionate Cons: none more

Ease your mind 4/20/2008

I first started seeing Dr.s Adams and Cheek a year and half ago. The reviews and feedback I had recevied about their practice were quickly confirmed upon visiting them for the first time. Dr. Adams worked out a comprehensive care plan for me (I have A LOT of dental issues that need to be fixed), but he did this by thoroughly explaining what needed to be done when, prioritizing the procedures, etc. The dentist is one of the few places that I tend to get stressed out, not so much being in the chair itself but the paperwork and decisions that must be made around all of the procedures. Dr. Adams and Cheek have been extremely helpful when it comes to making those decisions and putting my mind at ease. Pros: Professional staff, payment plans Cons: none more
