I need a gold crown and I need it done right ... the first time.

With Duke Medical in the area, there has to be some great dentist. Suggestions?

You're kidding....right?
What does Duke being here have to do with dentistry?
UNC in Chapel Hill has a dental school in case you haven't noticed.

I'm a huge Duke fan, but nobody touches my teeth but a Carolina guy H.E. Douglas...UNC Dental School. He's in Raleigh on Lake Boone Tr.

Dr. Thomas Leech is probably the best in the area. If you don't believe me just ask me.

Not only did he graduate from ECU and Duke but followed up with a degree from UNC dental school AND attended UNC's Advanced General Dentistry program. Try to find a dentist with better credentials.

And I avoid Durham at all costs but for him I make an exception since I only use the best.

William Gordon, 1904 Front St, Durham, NC 27705. (919) 383-6661. He does things right the first time. I have gone to him for 20 years and have needed EXTENSIVE dental work done. He has never let me down.

You might want to check out the UNC Dental Faculty Practice. That's where the dentists that teach all the other dentists work on patients.

I'm not familiar enough with the area to make any recommendations, but I do have to ask:

1. How do YOU define" best"? Best technical work? Best pain free? Best staff? Best prices? Best office atmosphere? Best bedside manner? ALL of these things are important to varying degrees with different people.

2. I'm not a dentist, so maybe I'm really wrong on this. I've got a mouthful of crowns and bridgework. Not ONCE was a gold crown recommended as the" best" solution. The cheapest solution? Yes, then gold crowns were considered. But if I wanted the" best", porcelain crowns were what my dentists recommended.

A second vote for Dr. Gordon. Been my dentist for nearly a decade and very happy with him.

I kind of wondered about this too. Why would someone seeking the best want a gold crown??
