Our expert dentists in Greensboro, NC and Durham, NC give your child a head start in life.
Led by our husband and wife dental duo, our caring team is like an extended family. We love working in the children’s dental field and strive to help kids develop positive memories of the dentist. At both our modern locations in Durham and Greensboro, NC, we explain the process for outstanding dentistry and seek to empower optimism and self-confidence within each child.
Using our vast experience, we take time to educate both kids and parents about oral hygiene, and adapt to your child’s personal needs. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
We speak both English and Spanish at Atlantis Dentistry and Carousel Dentistry.
Meet Drs. Rachel and Gregory Perentis
Dr. Rachel West Perentis
“The biggest fear for my patients is the fear of pain. Talking to them, distracting them, and just getting them through it with little or no discomfort at all is what gains their trust. When we tell them we won’t hurt them and then we don’t, that gains us the best kind of trust.”
Dr. Gregory Joseph Perentis
“When children are nervous or apprehensive and everybody around them is happy, smiling, and relaxed, then they will feed off of the positive energy. Like Anne Frank stated, ‘Whoever is happy will make others happy too.’ That’s what I aim to do with the awesome patients we see every day – share the joy!”
We think of all our young patients as part of our extended family. Their comfort, health, and enjoyment are central to everything we do. Our team treats your child to the same standard we’d care for our own kids – with the BEST care possible!
It’s important for children to have a positive view of dentistry, which is why we make their visit so much FUN. Our team loves to sing and dance, while Dr. Greg loves to bring his clown nose and funny hats to the office. Whether your child is five or fifteen, we’ll make their visit enjoyable and all about them!
Through gaining their trust and using distraction techniques, we can help your child feel relaxed during any treatment. Our offices provide a loving, fun, and calm environment where kids can feel part of the experience. Additionally, our team speaks both English and Spanish, so everything is clearly explained to mom and dad (so parents can relax too!).

The staff here is very professional. My two-year-old daughter and my three-year-old son were very comfortable with everyone here. They're very lovely and welcoming. The wait is not long at all, and they are very precise and on point. I love this place. TEN stars from my family and me.
