"Was taking my family member to the Eastway Drive location to be seen by Dr Stacey Alston. During that time everything went great. Since then the dentist informed us she'd moved to Matthews location. Cannot speak on this location, but Dr Stacey Alston is absolutely the best! She is wonderful with "dentures " or denture related needs. Family member had a situation & found Dr Alston after another dentist had done a bum job the 1st time. Went to her & she took her time listening to the issues & could clearly see for herself what the probs were. In the end she did a fantastic job correcting & replacing the dentures. Family member is proud of the new & lasting smile! Thank you Dr Stacey Alston!"- R.D. / Google / Aug 08, 2018
