Patient Praise, Best Dentist in Raleigh, Best of Raleigh

Looking for a family dentist in North Raleigh? Look no further. Patients throughout the Triangle come to Dr. Laura Kearney for all of their dental needs. Read through their reviews below!

Patients Become Family

“I have been a patient of Dr. Laura Kearney’s for 10+ years and couldn’t be happier. He has a very friendly demeanor and explains everything clearly to keep your mind at ease. If you’re looking for an excellent dentist and the comfort of a small practice where patients become family, look no further than Dr. Laura Kearney!”

My Three-Year-Old Loved Him

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Laura Kearney for 8 yrs now. He is the most thorough dentist I’ve ever seen & is also extremely friendly & gentle. My 3.5 year old daughter loved him when she had her first real cleaning today. I’ve referred multiple friends to him & all have been extremely pleased as well.”

Calming and Reassuring

“I have been seeing Dr. Laura Kearney for 20 years now. I think he is the best dentist around. He is very calming and reassuring. The staff is personable, friendly and helpful. My entire family and extended family are all patients as well. I highly recommend this dental practice!!”

An Excellent Doctor!

“Dr. Laura Kearney is an excellent doctor! He has taken care of my cleanings and several fillings over the past few years, as well as dental care for my mother. He is patient and good about answering any questions that I may have and reassures that I am okay throughout my visit. I never feel rushed or uncomfortable. The ladies in the office are also wonderful, pleasant and professional. I was also very glad that they could see my mother and I during the pandemic, which they handled very well; everything is always clean, sanitized and we’ve always felt very safe during our visits.”

No Anxiety with Dr. Laura Kearney

“I often have anxiety with dentists, but I had no problems at all with Dr. Laura Kearney. He told me what he would be doing with each step of the checkup and cleaning. He asked me several times during my appointment if I had any questions. I felt heard and respected. I had a good checkup. No cavities, but I would have trusted him to correct any problems I had.

It has been many, many years since I went to a dentist who did the entire checkup and cleaning himself. He was thorough yet gentle. I have left two previous dentists who I had seen for several years due to overly aggressive dental hygienists. Since Dr. Laura Kearney also does the cleanings, you can be assured he will do a good job with no injuries.

Jackie was wonderful on the front desk. Nice, professional, and knowledgeable lady. She was able to get me in quickly for my appointment and I already have an appointment for my next 6-month checkup. Such a wonderful dental practice! They are everything I would ever want in a dental office.”

One of the Best Recommendations I’ve Ever Received!

“It’s been ten years since my daughter recommended Dr. Laura Kearney to me and it’s one of the best recommendations I’ve ever received! Not once have I thought of going to another dentist and as long as Dr. Laura Kearney continues his practice, I never will! His chair-side manner is warm and engaging, and he keeps the patient informed of what he is doing and why in layman’s language. It’s not often that you’ll hear someone say that they look forward to visiting their dentist, but it’s definitely true in my case. As an added bonus, his staff is topnotch!”

Dr. Laura Kearney and His Team are like Family

“Today was my normal visit. As always everyone listens to me babbling. We talk about family, trips or whatever else is going on. Dr. Laura Kearney and his team are like family. Five years ago my husband and I invited them to our Wedding and they all came. Seriously though no one could ask for a better dentist and to have the staff that is just as outstanding as Dr. Laura Kearney. Dr. Laura Kearney is thorough in his explanations, takes the time to answer all questions until the patient understands the answer. I would recommend to anyone that is in need of a dentist to go see Dr. Laura Kearney and his team because you will not get better service, respect and a feeling of warmth anywhere else.”

Always A Great Experience

“Always a great experience! Dr. Laura Kearney is extremely caring and knowledgeable. Office staff is very efficient and friendly, they always make you feel welcome and at ease. I always recommend Dr. Laura Kearney to my friends and family members.”

Helpful and Accommodating Every Visit

“I was referred to Dr. Laura Kearney by my previous dentist when I moved to Raleigh several years ago and he has been my dentist since! He is always gentle and thorough and takes the time to make sure any questions or concerns you may have are answered. His team is helpful and accommodating every visit. Thank you for keeping my smile bright!”

Good Quality Care

“Dr. Laura Kearney’s attention to detail and overall concern for the patient is unparalleled based on my experience. He’s a true professional. I would say he is a dentist’s dentist. If you need good quality care I highly suggest Dr. Laura Kearney and staff.”

I No Longer Have Anxiety About My Dentist Appointments

“Ever since I was a child, I had a fear of the dentist. Years ago a coworker, who also dreaded going to the dentist, told me about Dr. Laura Kearney. He’s the only dentist I’ve ever been to that took the time to talk me through everything and ease my fears. From cleanings and checkups to fillings, he has always been patient and talked me through every step of the process. Thanks to Dr. Laura Kearney, I no longer have anxiety about my dentist appointments.”

The Best Dentist I have Ever Visited!

“Dr. Laura Kearney is the best dentist that I have ever visited, and I am rather particular about these things. I really can’t say enough good things about him. He and his staff are friendly, courteous, professional, and competent. Dr. Laura Kearney is always concerned to make sure that his patients understand exactly what is going on with their teeth and gums, and he is very gentle. I think that there are few health care professionals who take their work as seriously as Dr. Laura Kearney. I am very happy that I have found him, and I highly recommend him to others. I realize that this review is very positive, and I am often suspicious of such glowing online reviews myself. However, I can assure you that this review is perfectly genuine. I tend to be a bit anxious about my health, and in particular my dental health. Thus, I really do scrutinize my doctors and dentists carefully, and I stand behind everything that I’ve said here.”

Very Open and Honest

“Very nice atmosphere. This dentist office thoroughly explained procedures and billing in full detail, as well as answered any of my questions in a timely fashion. Dr. Laura Kearney, very open and honest and takes his job very seriously. I am glad I chose him as my Dentist. He comes highly recommended.”

Highly Recommend Dr. Laura Kearney and His Clinic!

“The best people and experience we have ever had at a dentist office. Very friendly staff. Thorough and comfortable during the exams. We highly recommend Dr. Laura Kearney and his clinic!”

Best Dentist in Raleigh, NC

“I have never met a dentist who cared like Dr. Laura Kearney. What really shocked me was he didn’t send a hygienist in to do the examination or talk to me, he did all of it. The only dentist I know of that does all the prep work dental work himself. He didn’t treat my situation like it was overwhelming, he’s is in my opinion one of the best dentist in NC. I would recommend this man to people of all races creed and backgrounds don’t hesitate. Very patient, kind and gentle.”

My Favorite Dentist in the North Raleigh Area

“I am taking the time to write my Review because Dr. Laura Kearney has become one of my favorite Dentist in the North Raleigh area. I highly recommend Dr.Dr. Laura Kearney for your Dental needs now and in the future. I really love my interaction with Linda, the Office Manager and the entire staff. Dr. Laura Kearney is Professional, Friendly and takes a personal interest in his Patients. I became a new Patient in 2014 and was very pleased with my dental procedure. I also have referred my younger son as a new Patient in August 2015. ”

Professional and Caring Dentist

“If you are looking for a professional and caring dentist Dr. Laura Kearney is the one too see. Every visit has been wonderful. It is nice knowing your dentist loves his work and makes your experience comfortable. Also he has a great staff from Mrs.Linda being sweet answering every question I had thoroughly to his helpful assistants. Great teamwork is seen. Thank you for my beautiful smile.”

Only Dentist I Will Ever Let Near My Teeth

“I’ve been a patient here since 2004. Dr. Laura Kearney is the only Dentist I will ever let near my teeth! He’s such a caring Dentist. On Easter Day my temporary crown fell out and I was in so much pain, he met me up here that same day to fix it. I am so pleased with his work that both my sons now come here. I had so many cavities that I thought we would never get done with them all and I am proud to say that as of today I am now cavity free. Thank you so much to Dr. Laura Kearney and his wonderful staff and to Linda who never gave up on me. See you in 6 months!!”

Spectacular in Evert Aspect

He talks you through every procedure and wants you to be as comfortable as possible. He is very relaxed in his work and loves each patient and their family. You really get to build a bond with their staff. They are absolutely fantastic and I certainly recommend him to any and everybody.

I am Always Very Happy

“I am always very happy with Dr. Laura Kearney. I visited him last month for a regular checkup. I like that he gives treatment options, and never “pushes”. He’s a “just the facts” kind of guy, which goes along well with my way of thinking.”

Professional, Friendly and Caring

I arrived in Raleigh 7 years ago and didn’t have a dentist. My husband was already going there. We live 35 minutes from Dr. Laura Kearney and I tried 2 other dentists because of the distance, but eventually came back. I am now going to take my 6 and 4-year-old as he is a great dentist. Dr. Laura Kearney is friendly, very gentle and extremely knowledgeable. The entire staff is professional, friendly and caring. Definitely worth the drive!

Thank Goodness For The Web

I like having access to the opinions and experiences of others when searching for dental services. Dr. Laura Kearney has quite a few fans out here. I was convinced, and decided to give him a try. Wow, everybody was right! I really like him. Not only is he an excellent dentist, he’s one of the people who you sometimes meet, and you just can tell that they are decent, honest and good, someone you could be good friends with and rely on. Couldn’t be happier.

Fantastic Dentist in Raleigh

I love coming to Dr. Laura Kearney…He is such a wonderful dentist. He is extremely knowledgeable about his work. And also really gentle (I dreaded dentist chairs until I came to him)…Dr. Laura Kearney is very patient and takes the time to talk you through all procedures and any questions. His staff is also very friendly and caring.

Highly Recommended!!

What a pleasure to recomend Dr. Laura Kearney. We have been patients for over 4 years, and would never go any where else. He’s skilled, friendly, easy to talk to, and reasonably priced. Nobody likes having dental work done, but he makes it as easy as possible.

Smiling Because of Dr. Laura Kearney

Seems a bit funny to be raving about a dentist, but if you’ve had as much work done as I have, you really care about how good your dentist is, and how reasonable the cost. Dr. Laura Kearney is top notch on both accounts. I’ve referred at least 4 friends to him, and they are all just as happy as I am. He’s a gem.

Professional Staff

I had a tooth pain over the holidays and this Doctor along with his staff were very professional. I felt that they really want to be the best in what they do and make you feel comfortable and relaxed. I felt the good customer service since my first call for the emergency appointment that by the way, was the only dentist open that I could find and that didn’t require you to be a previous patient to see you. The receptionist was very caring and even disputed coverage with my insurance. The nurse was very nice and had a lot of patience with me. Dr. Laura Kearney was very gentile and explained all the options that I had with no pressure. I was very scared when I got there but actually everything moved smoothly. I had never gone to a dentist that I didn’t feel pain. He and his staff were awesome and they respect and do care for their patients. Thank you for everything. You guys saved me from a lot of pain!

Pleasant Experience

I was really pleased with Dr. F and his entire staff. The office was beautiful, in a safe place and very convenient to my house. They were all extremely competent and professional. It’s been a while since I’ve been to the dentist and my mouth was a mess. I was so ashamed and they all made me feel comfortable. We had an excellent rapport. Dr. F had a wonderful sense of humor. I didn’t have time to be ashamed or afraid because he kept me laughing. The dental assistant was kind and gentle and so was the office manager. She managed all of the details, so I knew exactly what I was doing and I didn’t have to worry about the small stuff. They were upfront about the finances and they all worked together very well. They really took away my fear of going to the dentist. I am going to recommend them to my friends. I know I am writing a lot, but I am just so thankful and excited that I was referred to them!

Wonderful Experience!

I recently moved to this area and had no dentist. I saw the wonderful reviews for Dr. Laura Kearney and went to him. I second everything that has been said before – the office staff is so thoughtful and friendly, and Dr. Laura Kearney is very, very thorough and courteous. I thought the charge would have been higher as the exam I was given was very detailed. I am very happy to have found an excellent dentist now! I will definitely recommend him.

Very Good Dentist, Very Professional, Great Location near I-540 and North Raleigh

I changed Dentists a while back and found Dr. Laura Kearney. What a relief! A dentist that tells you what he is doing and what he will be doing with clear communication and a general feeling of actually caring about the patient and not the money in the patients account. He could not be any clearer in his communication on issues and his recommendations while I was in the chair and after the appointment.

His staff is professional and the visits are friendly and I do not feel like I am pushed through to get me to the pay counter. His office assistant even fit me in on a crowded day to fix a chipped tooth a day before I was going on vacation.

Dr. Laura Kearney always points out issues but I don’t feel like he has gone through my pockets after a visit as with my last dentist. I sometimes think she dug holes in my teeth so she could fill them and increase her bank account. With Dr. Laura Kearney, pricing is fair, great location near I-540 and North Raleigh, service is great, he has a great “bedside manner” and they work with my insurance. What more could you ask!

And to add to that…..he appears to be a pretty cool guy!

At last, a fantastic dentist!

Like the other reviewers, I can’t say enough about what a change (and a relief) it was to finally have a good experience with a dentist. I had been terrorized by painful dentist trips in the past and was reluctant to go in for even something as routine as cleanings. Dr. Laura Kearney did an awesome job of making me comfortable and answered all of my questions with patience. He actually seems to care about his work unlike so many of the “factories” in the medical and dental field now. I found my regular dentist!

Best Dentist Ever!

Very good, no pain just had two crowns and three cavities. Great Dentist and the Staff are very helpful and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone.

Can you say professionalism?

What a wonderful experience. We all fear the dentist but Dr. Laura Kearney’s style of questions and answers with solid explanations had me feeling comfortable from the moment I sat in the chair. His work seemed very thorough and was (and I’m so glad it was) very painless. I will not be scared to go back and I plan on telling my friends to give him a try, I wish my first dentist was so professional.

Excellent Dentist!

Just had 3 cavities filled by Dr. Laura Kearney and he was very generous with meds and I did not feel a thing. He explained the process throughout and was very caring. Recommend him highly and his support staff is very friendly and personable. Thanks Dr. Laura Kearney!

Great Dentist

“Great dentist. He explains what he is going to do and he does not hurt you. I don’t trust anyone else in my mouth. I’ve been coming since 2005.”

Wait Time Was Not Long At all

“I went to Dr. Laura Kearney a few days ago, and I am extremely happy. The wait time was not long at all, even though it was my first time seeing him. The waiting area was every comfortable and cozy, and the receptionists were very nice. The dentist office itself was very clean, and Dr. Laura Kearney was very nice. He listened to what I had to say and he let me know exactly what was going to happen. I was extremely happy and would recommend him to anyone.”

Recommend to Anyone Who Is Anxious About Dental Visits

“We found Dr. Laura Kearney in 2003. He is always professional and thorough in his examination and in his treatment of patients. We left the area in 2011 and moved back just recently. We were happy to find Dr. Laura Kearney in the same location and as pleasant as ever. I have never had to sit in the waiting room with other patients losing valuable time waiting to be seen. I recommend Dr. Laura Kearney highly to anyone, especially anyone who is anxious about dental visits.”

They Always Made Time For Me

“Dr. Laura Kearney and his staff are second to none. With an ongoing procedure and many visits, often with out an appointment, they always made time for me. Thank you Linda! Even once on a Friday when they were closed! I can’t say enough. They are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects. Thanks to you all, I can smile proudly!”

I Could Not Be Happier

“I was referred to Dr. Laura Kearney through a friend of ours and I could not be happier! Dr. Laura Kearney and his staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied.”
