Captained by 21-year dental practice veteran Dr. John T. Walsh, the Dentistry of the Carolinas network of multispecialty dentists performs a full range of services, with some locations providing cosmetic whitening and dental implants. Their backgrounds in dental surgery enable them to expertly handle root canals and extractions, and their knowledge of Invisalign orthodontia helps them inconspicuously straighten out wayward teeth without metal braces or barks from a boot-camp drill sergeant. The team also performs a range of basic services, including routine cleanings that free teeth of hardened tartar and plaque, fillings, root canals, extractions, dentures and partials. Customers can contact their desired location for a full list of services.
In 2008, husband and wife Jason and Shanon Rabon saw something was missing from their native city of Charlotte. People who wanted a more brilliant smile to display during dates, weddings, or long commutes couldn't gain one with ease. Usually, whitening one’s teeth requires an expensive visit to the dentist to brighten smiles with a combination of hydrogen-peroxide gel and LED light. Jason and Shanon offer an alternative at their seven Whiten My Smile Now locations, which provide the same treatment at a far lower cost. It’s a convenience that has rapidly ascended in popularity: over 30,000 clients have sought out the service since it opened.
During visits, a technician thoroughly explains the procedure and holds up a mirror while the client brushes the whitening gel directly onto their teeth. This brush-delivery method delves deep into the cracks and nooks of the teeth to evenly lift out discoloration and stains. With gel applied, clients relax in a private area under the LED light for approximately 15 minutes. Afterwards, they can check how many shades teeth have brightened by comparing their smiles to a whitening chart.
In their daily quest to promote dental health, Dr. James E. Lemmons and his staff adhere to strict safety standards from OSHA, the ADA, and the CDC when performing general, restorative, or cosmetic treatments. Dr. Lemmons is a strong proponent of preventive care and patient education. Not content to merely treat dental issues after the fact, he strives to head off tooth decay with thorough examinations, routine cleanings, and by not condoning the use of licorice ropes for flossing.
Doctors Tom Fisher and Arnold Ma, joined by a hardy squad of hygienists and assistants, keep their clients’ smiles sparkling wide array of cosmetic and general dentistry services. They battle plaque during routine cleanings paired with x-rays, repairing bigger problems with fillings or bridges. They're also keenly aware of how important a smile is to a person’s self-confidence, so they go beyond health-based treatments by performing cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, ClearCorrect, and implant dentistry.
Born and raised near Pompeii, Dr. Roberto Palmieri managed to gather eight years of denture-making experience by the time he was 20. Despite his tenure as a dental technician, Roberto had to start fresh upon moving to the states. After attending UCLA and graduating from dental school, Roberto became Dr. Palmieri—the head of Palmieri Dentistry.
Today, he and his staff help patients maintain their oral health in a sunlit space that offers accoutrements such as warm or chilled neck wraps, paraffin hand wraps, fleece blankets, and personalized music and movies. In this setting, which only feels unsterile, nervous minds can escape, all while the doctor examines digital x-rays, fits teeth for crowns or bridges, or reshapes smiles with ceramic veneers.
