Dastrup Dental Patient Testimonial

Gary K.

This dental practice which Dr. Dastrup purchased over a year ago, was initially the practice of Dr. Yarborough. Since moving in 2005 to the Lake Norman area, I have been a patient of Dr. Yarborough, a dentist who in my experience was the most expert, caring and kind person one could ever hope to find practicing dentistry. Dr. Yarborough had put together an extraordinary professional staff who over many years became not just dental providers but more like family. While I can attest to Dr. Yarborough’s skills as a dentist and a profoundly kind and decent person, I have not yet accumulated the direct experience with Dr. Dastrup that I had with Dr. Yarborough.

Like most patients, my most frequent care was provided by Lila Phillips, Dr. Yarborough’s most experienced dental hygienist, who I would see three times a year for a thorough dental cleaning. When you see a dental professional three times a year, one gets to know the quality of the dental work: Lila Phillips is an outstanding hygienist whose expertise was as incomparable as her caring was for her patients. She was not just excellent technically: she was observant of the condition I presented and would make observations about ways in which I could improve my dental care, or give advice about how better to use an ultrasonic toothbrush or note the presence of an area of concern that I might have missed in my brushing and flossing. In other words, she would ask about my general well being in life after looking professionally at my mouth. This kind of holistic approach is an astute way of understanding that there is a relationship between a patient’s whole life experience and what might be occurring in one’s mouth at any particular time. In my 70 plus years of dental care in four separate states, I have never had a more professional or caring dental hygienist, and this review is as much about this high-quality dental practice as it is about the extraordinary care I have received from Lila Phillips these many, many years. Regrettably, a move to another location requires that I find a new dentist and hygienist and I expect that it will be difficult to find someone with Lila Phillips combination of abilities. If you live in the Lake Norman area, I recommend this dental practice and especially recommend that you ask to be assigned to Lila Phillips for your routine visits.

Nikki C.

I absolutely love this entire office! From the moment you walk in you can tell everyone loves their jobs. Dr. Dastrup truly cares about his patients and it totally shows after talking to him for only a few minutes!

Dr. Dastrup goes above and beyond to ensure the best dental care possible. Very professional and always one time. Such a great experience, our entire family loves “Dr Joe”!

Garit G.

Joe is by far the best dentist we have ever had the privilege of visiting and one of the best people you will ever meet. He has a fantastic way of relating to his patients with honesty and integrity. My family and I are all huge fans and you can be sure you and your family are in good hands with his team. Thanks, Joe!

Jen S.

Dr. Dastrup and his staff are a top-notch team. They are extremely thorough, answering all my questions; I never feel like my visit is rushed. I would strongly recommend this practice to anyone looking for dental care.

Doug W.

As a recent transfer to North Carolina and Davidson, I found myself recommending both to friends ‘Up North’…..and in the process realized that we had found ourselves in the hands of the best practice of dentistry we have experienced in six decades of our family of five. Dr. Dastrup— and those supporting his practice— are literally “worth writing home about.’

Jose C.

Dr. Dastrup and his team treated me like I was their #1 customer. The Receptionist is very respectful and informative along with the rest of his team. I couldn’t ask for a better dentist. The 5-star establishment I recommend every and anyone to at least visit his practice.

Becky A.

I was so nervous after my dentist of 30+ years retired. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Dastrup and his staff. Everyone is kind, professional and courteous. Dr. Dastrup continuously makes sure you’re comfortable. The end results are perfect. I had a dental nightmare when I tried someone close to home. The commute to Dr. Dastrup is well worth It! You will not be disappointed.

Ieslie P.

I not only had the pleasure to work for Dr. Dastrup as an assistant, but I was also a patient before relocating back on the west coast. I highly recommend Dr. Dastrup. He is such a kind, caring gentle, perfectionist & by far one of the BEST most excellent dentists I’ve worked for in my 19 years in dentistry. His work is impeccable!!! His cosmetics cases are so natural looking & beautiful. The entire team strives to provide you with the best dental care experience, spending time with you to ensure you fully understand your dental health & needs. He regularly attends continuing education dental courses to stay on top of all the advances in dentistry to provide his patients with the best care possible & creating beautiful smiles.
His staff is all so kind & caring and will welcome you into the practice and make you feel at home & like a part of the Dastrup Dental Family.

Adriana B.

Dr. Dastrup and his team are dental superstars! You walk into this gorgeous office and are greeted with smiles and kindness immediately! They even offer you a coffee and water while you wait (which isn’t long enough to drink your coffee lol)!! Dr. Dastrup and his team are super sweet and very professional- you get a healthy dose of southern hospitality. This is the ONLY office in Davidson to consider- excellent dentistry with awesome people.

Isabelle P.

Dr “Joe” Dastrup is a caring professional. When a patient is strapped into the dentist chair, he cedes self-control to the dentist. He needs the assurance of a gentle and considerate procedure. Dr. Dastrup provides that gentle and considerate care. While it is noteworthy that he has updated tools and techniques, it is this kind of assurance that is so important. If I were a young mother, Dr. Dastrup would be my choice for my children. We are so fortunate to have Dr. Joe in our community.

Leah E.

Dr. Dastrup has provided excellent service in a professional and timely fashion. His office is well run with a friendly and competent staff. I can highly recommend him as an outstanding dentist.

Joe T.

The technicians at this practice are great, very knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. Dastrup is a very good dentist with a lot of experience, expertise and he cares about his patients and wants them to get the best care possible. The office is also very nice, highly recommended.

 

“Dr. Dastrup is a leader in his profession. One can tell that he loves what he does. He is dedicated to help his patients have the best smile possible I love his attention to detail as he has worked on my teeth.

He has been excellent with my family and has helped them feel comfortable during our dental visits. I’m blown away by his incredible office staff and appreciate how caring they are.

I highly recommend Dr. Dastrup and know that you will not be disappointed.”

“My name is C. J. from Arrington, TN, and I was in Davidson on business when a crown on one of my teeth popped off during a meeting. Immediately I could feel the sensitivity and pain start to set in. Not knowing what I was going to do, I looked up dentists in Davidson on Google, and found Dr. Dastrup. Without an appointment, I drove to Dr. Dastrup’s office and explained my situation. This amazing group of people took me in, treated me as if I had been a long time patient, repaired my tooth, and turned what could have been a miserable week into a memorable display of compassion for a person in trouble. I want to recognize the amazing girls out front, the awesome dental assistant, and of course Dr. Dastrup. All of these fine people stayed unti well after closing time to help a stranger through a difficult time. If you have a choice of dentists, this is where you want to be.”

“As usual, the hygienist (April) and Dr. Dastrup were their dependably kind and professional selves. I regularly feel cared for and valued as a patient in this practice. It has been a good number of years since I or my family have visited a different dental practice, so my recollections of other offices are not completely crystal clear in my memory. But I am happy to say that visiting Dr. Dastrup’s (and Dr. Yarborough’s) pracitice has been the best dental experience I have had in my life. (We have been customers of this practice over the last 16 years.)”

“I am very pleased with Dr Dastrup and his entire office. Lila is my hygienist and she is very professional and thorough. My husband is now also a new patient with Dr Dastrup because of my high recommendation. It’s hard to like a dentist ( don’t take it personally- it’s jyst sometimes a little scary with occasional unexpected consequences.) But I gotta say I really really like Dr Dastrup ! And I’m not scared or at all reluctant to go there – I highly recommend him ( and Lila!)”

“I have always valued my visits to Dr. Yarborough’s office, for his excellent dental service, and now the kind and professional care of Dr. Dastrup. Rose and April have been the best hygienists I have ever had (in decades of dental experiences) in that they successfully educated me about good habits of dental self-care. They have also been cheerful and pleasant during every appointment I have had. Our whole family has been blessed by this dental practice. From the receptionists to the specialists this office raises dentistry to an art form.”

“Avril is the best dental hygienist and is very gentle with cleaning teeth. Dr Dastrup did a great job on my wife’s new bridge, etc. He even came in on his days off to work on her so he could be even more focused while making it more convenient for her. The office personnel are always helpful, work well with the insurance companies, and are very courteous. This is a wonderful dental office. It would be a little less expensive if they belonged to my dental insurance network but even though they are not the service they provide is worth it.”

“My first dental tooth filling by Dr. Dastrup was outstanding as far as very little pain from the “pinch” of the numbing needle and medicine, filling process, and quick efficient processing in order for me to have a speedy pleasant visit with all the fabulous employees, who work in his office. My family has been loyal patients of this awesome practice for almost 40 years, with Dr. Yarborough being a true gift from God to take care of of our teeth during his years of practice. Dr. Yarborough made a wise decision in choosing Dr. Dastrup to continue his practice location after his retirement.”
