Heather M. Wilmore, DDS
It's difficult to say which aspect of Dr. Heather Wilmore’s background is most responsible for her focus on patient comfort: her nursing background or her training in business management and office design. The former pediatric ICU nurse has created a welcoming environment in which she performs general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services with the latest equipment and technology. Upon entering the reception area, you'll find warm golden walls, bursts of red from floral arrangements, and dark wood and leather furniture, all of which make the space feel more like a Victorian-era parlor than a dentist's office. A backlit water fountain murmurs soothingly as patients sip a complimentary beverage and head for rooms equipped with movies, music, and educational videos. After treatment, guests freshen up with a lemon-scented towel. But Dr. Wilmore's emphasis on comfort extends beyond pampering. She uses an advanced digital-imaging system to predict the future of clients' smiles and the profitability of investing tooth-fairy spoils in a money market fund. She hastens recovery time from local anesthetic with a product called OraVerse, allowing patients to return to speaking, eating, and smiling in half the time. Dr. Wilmore's passion for people is also demonstrated in her community involvement: she serves people with disabilities as an MHMR Association dentist and speaks at elementary schools about the importance of oral hygiene.
