I was referred to Dr. Jelic’s office by my family dentist!
Had to travel an hour to get to Dr. Jelic’s practice, but it was well worth the drive!
I’m usually very anxious when visiting a new dentist for the first time.
Dr. Jelic’s Office Manager made we feel very welcome on my first visit, then it was time to meet Dr. Jelic and the rest of the staff!
Dr. Jelic was very knowledgeable about my condition, TMJ!
From my first appointment till my last, the treatment I received was both respectful, caring and efficient!
I highly recommend the Jelic Center!

Dr. Jelic is a medical artist…not only an oral surgeon but also a plastic surgeon. He took extensive time to explain treatment options for my snoring and mild sleep apnea. He is knowledgable, answered all my questions and concerns, and offered far more solutions than I imagined. He also has a calm demeanor and speaks with confidence which is assuring to me that he is the expert and most qualified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.

Dr. Jelic and his staff were phenomenal. I had a fairly difficult wisdom teeth removal and I am so glad I chose someone with Dr. Jelic’s expertise. All of the nurses and staff that I interacted with were very helpful and friendly! I am also diabetic and they did a great job making sure to safely accommodate my condition during the procedure. I definitely recommend this practice!

Had a lengthy and difficult procedure at Dr. Jelic's office last week. The entire staff could not have been more knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and considerate. The procedure made me very anxious, and everyone worked hard to alleviate my anxiety. I was made to feel like I was the only patient for the day. Nobody looks forward to visiting the oral surgeon's office. That said, I can't imagine having been in better hands that day. Thanks to the entire staff!!

I couldn't recommend a place more highly for wisdom teeth removal. I had my upper wisdom teeth removed at a different office, and the difference between the two was night and day. Dr. Jelic and his staff are kind, welcoming, considerate and efficient. When I said on the initial scheduling call that I was in pain, they scheduled my consultation for the following day, then took the teeth out immediately after my consultation. Dr. Jelic was the most patient and kind dental professional I've ever met (and I've been to 6 different dentists this year). I needed my wisdom teeth out using local anesthetic only, and saw three different surgeons for consultations - Dr. Jelic was the only one who didn't try to pressure or scare me into IV sedation. He explained the procedure thoroughly and patiently answered every question I had. I have a vastly more positive memory of the 30 minutes it took him to remove my partially impacted lower wisdom teeth than of the 2 minutes it took to remove my upper wisdom teeth at a different dentist. I'll be recommending this office to anyone looking for an oral surgeon.

This was by far the best patient experience I have ever had in any healthcare practice. Dr. Jelic and his staff were very friendly, welcoming, and informative in every visit. They provided fantastic education materials to prepare me for my wisdom teeth extraction, and walked me through everything I needed to know at each appointment. And maybe I was just lucky with how my 4 wisdom teeth were positioned, but I’ve had very little pain following surgery, and any pain I have had has been manageable with just ibuprofen. An all around excellent experience!

Both my teens had wisdom teeth removed here. Everyone on staff is warm and welcoming. Dr. Jelic is personable and professional. He made sure both my teens and myself got any questions answered. On the day of the surgeries, everyone was cheerful, helpful and supportive. I didn't have the best experience myself getting wisdom teeth out when I was a teen so it was wonderful to give a much better memory to my children.

Dr. Jelic and his team are wonderful! After wanting a lip lift for a while I finally did it, and I couldn't be more pleased! Dr. Jelic's work is flawless. It's been 3 months since my surgery. The results are better than I expected: my top teeth show improved significantly, overall my lips feel more proportioned to me now. Everyone at the office is friendly and caring. Dr. Jelic is amazing, very honest about the results you can expect and very professional. I am so happy I found this office! Highly recommend, you'll be in great hands.

I wish I could give this place 10 stars. Dr. Jelic and his team are the most professional people I have ever worked with. I had to get my wisdom teeth removed due to them being majorly impacted on the lower level, I had a lot of fear and anxiety from the horror stories of complications that could occur.Dr. Jelic eased my mind and told me everything would be fine, after surgery, I was having trouble getting the bleeding to stop from the sockets, and Dr. Jelic came into his office late night and stayed with me for 2 hours while he fixed the problem and got the bleeding to stop.Dr. Jelic is professional, friendly and ultimately incredible at his job. I couldn't recommend this place enough and thank you so much Dr. Jelic for helping me when I was in need!

Excellent practitioner and office. We found their care to be extremely patient-centered from the person answering the phone and scheduling to the nurses and the physician. They take their time, are compassionate in their care, and responsive to a patient's needs. We'd highly recommend their medical practice and can understand why our dentist recommended Dr. Jelic.

I had two wisdom teeth removed from the right side of my mouth and the procedure was much less painful than I expected. Virtually no memory of the actual procedure after having the IV sedation and the majority of the pain was gone after the first 6-8 hours. After day 1, I would compare it to having a minor mouth sore. The swelling went down after day 4 and no I feel virtually normal. Thanks to Dr. Jelic and his staff!

Dr. Jelic and his staff of highly qualified assistants we're top notch in the removal of all 4 of my 3rd molars. The process was was easier and less traumatic than I imagined.It was barely an hour! I only used over the counter pain medication for 24 hrs and ice packs. It's been 2 weeks since my surgery. I've had my follow up with Dr. Jelic and his wonderful staff. I was guided through the process of cleaning and caring for my wounds and continue to follow the prescribed post-op instructions. I'm not a gum chewer but i'm following the letter of the law as prescribed. I continue to clean and care for my extraction sites and remain pain free.

I came to Dr. Jelic to get my wisdom teeth and 2 baby teeth removed. At first I was scared but the staff did a very good job at telling me exactly what would be done and how I would need to prepare for it. They even went the extra mile when there was a miscommunication about what teeth needed to be pulled during my wisdom teeth removal, they offered to remove said teeth free of charge. I'm really thankful for them and would recommend anyone that needs any sort of teeth removal to Dr.Jelic.

We have created a network of talented restorative dentists and dental specialists to provide traditional oral surgery services such as dental implants, extraction of wisdom teeth, and management and repair of oral pathology. Their talents are integral to the exceptional results of Jelic Center SMILE DESIGN.

Jelic Center is the ideal setting for the treatment of dental malocclusion, facial asymmetries and conditions resulting from abnormal facial growth. In many cases, Dr. Jelic can team up with orthodontists for minimally invasive techniques such as surgically assisted rapid orthodontic SARO to minimize treatment time and defer the need for major surgery.

Dr. Jelic is fellowship trained in orthognathic corrective jaw surgery and has adapted and expanded reconstructive jaw techniques to create the ideal treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. This allows him to improve the upper airway while correcting malocclusions and enhancing facial aesthetics.

For patients that want to focus of soft tissue concerns and facial rejuvenation, Jelic Center also provides facial cosmetic surgical and minimally invasive facial esthetic services to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. Schedule a consultation to learn about facial rejuvenating procedures such as lip lifting and shaping, rhinoplasty, ear lobe repair, otoplasty, blepharoplasty, brow lifting or fat sculpting procedures such as fat injections and facial liposuction.
