Horizon has been a BLESSING! I had an oral fibroma that I bit down on over the weekend and was in so much pain. Within 24 hours, Dr. Dan had me scheduled for removal and biopsy. The staff as well were so comforting and absolutely stellar! As someone with a lot of fear around dentist offices, Dr. Dan and his team made me feel safe and comfortable. I have found my new dentist for sure! Thank you Horizon Dental.

Literally the best dentist I’ve ever gone to! I am new to the Charlotte area and they welcomed me with open arms! I highly recommend any adult or child to go to this dentist!

This place is absolutely EXCELLENT from the moment you first walk into the door to when you walk out! The atmosphere/staff is very, very welcoming, the staff is excellent and will walk you through every detail. I urgently needed to get my wisdom teeth out (which is nerve-racking in itself) and I was walked through the entire process. I am TERRIFIED of the dentist - due to past experiences at other clinics, but my dental hygienist went above and beyond to make me comfortable and huge shout out to Dr. Dan who did the same! He’s amazing! 1000% recommended to Dr. Dan to everyone & 1000% recommend this place!

Very friendly & kind office staff. Dr. Maggie was just as kind as her dental assistant Kim. They took the time to help me understand what the problem was and what my options are to fix my problem. They advised me of what my insurance would and wouldn’t cover and what was expected from me before my appointment. I feel very comfortable being in the know.
From the beginning to the end, everybody was very friendly and attentive. They all made sure I knew what was going to happen next and that I was comfortable. There was a miscommunication regarding what I was being charged but then it was clarified by the doctor and assistant. As far as I was told the prices are very fair compared to other places.

"I am really thankful to have found Horizon Dental. I had my first appointment with them yesterday and can’t say enough good things about them! I’m one of those “afraid of the dentist” people, but Horizon may have cured that. Everyone was so friendly, calming, and knowledgeable. My hygienist, Ashley, was especially great! I highly recommend Horizon Dental!"
- Jenny P.
"Horizon Dental is absolutely amazing! I needed a deep cleaning and my hygienist was the best, I forgot to ask her name but she was very personable and keep a fun conversation throughout the entire process. The cleaning didn’t hurt at all and Dr. Dan was super nice and friendly but I really took note of how he treated his staff."
- Sheryl M.
"The entire experience was very good. The staff was professional and friendly and knowledgeable. I had a very serious issue that was taken care of but they worked so smoothly that it really felt more like a normal everyday procedure. I highly recommend this practice."
- Yolanda G.

- Lilly N.
"A fantastic experience! The entire staff were very cheerful, making what is normally a nerve-racking experience for most a pleasant one. The work done is fast, efficient, and honestly entertaining. I will definitely be back regularly and honestly hope other dental teams follow in the footsteps of this very modern, very relaxing model."
- Stephen V.
"Dr. Dan and staff did a great job making me feel comfortable. I appreciate that they don't make you wait around, when you have an appointment, you go right on in at that time. I love the setup. You can watch TV on the ceiling to keep your mind occupied and at ease during your procedure. Dr. Dan and his team are always pleasant and professional. I could not have asked for a better experience at the dentist and have recommended Dr. Dan to a few friends who have experienced the same."
