“I met Dr. Piper at my routine dental cleaning . I was very impressed at how thorough and professional he was. After speaking to him and reviewing his credentials, I am very confident that Dr. Piper will take care of my dental needs. His credentials speak for themselves, but combined with his pleasant personality, professionalism, he is an elite dental provider.”

“My initial visit with Dr. Piper was quite refreshing. He took the time to get to know me as well as inform me about his background before my examination began. It is very evident that his family is a top priority in his life. Family is just one of the many areas that we discovered that we have in common. He has a sincere interest in me as a person and not just as a patient. Lastly, I can confidently say that we are blessed to have him in our county. I can recommend him without any hesitation. His future in Wilkes County is very bright.”

“I have been a patient at this practice for over twenty years. The staff at Piedmont Dental Associates are always friendly and helpful. I met Dr. Piper and was very pleased and reassured by his friendly down to earth chair side manner. He is thorough and gentle. He is a nice fellow.

He spent quite a bit of time with me, taking care of my dental needs. I know he will be quite successful in Wilkes County.”

I was going to see a new dentist and I did not know what to expect. Dr. Piper is kind and courteous, he is a good listener and values what you have to say. I am very happy that Dr. Piper is my dentist, and I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a top notch dentist, the staff are great too! Give Dr. Piper a try and you will be glad you did.

“Dr. Carnaggio is excellent because he explains what needs to be done and why and  I have had no discomfort when I’ve had a procedure done!  His staff has been very accommodating when I’ve called to make an appointment. Both Dr. Carnaggio and his staff are very friendly and welcoming!  I actually like going to the dentist!”

“I think Dr. Carnaggio is the best dentist I have gone to in 50 years!  I have had friends who are afraid of going to the dentist and I have told them that they will change their mind if they see Dr. Carnaggio!”

“I was concerned about moving to the area and finding an excellent dentist since I have a number of dental problems. I was fortunate to find Dr. Carnaggio and his wonderful staff. He is so caring and understanding and he explains all of my dental options and we work together as a team. It is definitely worth the 40 mile drive to his office.”
