With the aim of becoming the Ritz-Carlton of dental offices, Dr. Jean Woods and her staff lavish patients with individualized attention and luxurious amenities during aesthetic and general dentistry services. The staff soothes dentist's-office-related anxieties by blocking out sounds with a Bose headphones system or by painlessly warding off discomfort with a computer-operated local anesthetic. To remove plaque, they use a technique called air abrasion, which eschews harsh drills for compressed air. Whether boosting patients' self-confidence with root-canal therapy or performing general check-ups, the staff uses advanced technology, including intraoral cameras and rotary instruments. Dr. Woods keeps her tools sharp by participating in several professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners. She also plays an active role within the community by sponsoring the shadowing program, which welcomes future dentists to explore the field and partake in its after-work foosball tournaments.
Old North State native Dr. Josiah Chen fosters healthier smiles with restorative and cosmetic dentistry in an office that combines up-to-date technology with an emphasis on patient comfort and education. Dr. Chen's memberships in various dental organizations keep him abreast of all the latest dental developments, and he equips his office with low-radiation digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, so patients can view the insides of their own mouths and their future. Live-action videos and 3-D animations visually demonstrate procedures, giving patients a heads-up on procedural goings-on and allowing them to make informed choices when developing a treatment plan. TVs in each room and WiFi in the waiting room further encourage comfort pre or post-procedures.
The interior of Carolina Dental Arts' Morrisville location looks like a dentist's office from the future. Neon track lighting splashes the dimly lit office's ceiling and walls, an aesthetic that extends to the other four office locations. Overseeing the operation is Dr. Kyle Roth and his seasoned dental staff. Their procedures range from routine cleanings to more complex treatments such as Invisalign and glueing baby teeth back into place.
After attending New York University's College of Dentistry, Dr. Michael Riccobene relocated to Selma, North Carolina where, in 2000, he founded the first Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry office. Since then, Dr. Riccobene has expanded his practice to seven other locations, with the newest office opened recently in Raleigh. To keep up with the demands of each office, Dr. Riccobene works alongside 18 other dentists whom he vets for their chairside manner as well as their dental experience: they must be patient, have a good sense of humor, and be as good at explaining procedures as they are at performing them.
Once on staff, each dentist aims to make every visit?from preventative exams to root canals and Invisalign fittings?comfortable and fear-free for the client. Riccobene's team also eases nerves by keeping wait times short, dispensing coffee from Starbucks machines in the lobby, and hanging a satellite TV in view of each treatment chair. Along with being an advocate for patients, Dr. Riccobene gives back to his community through various charitable organizations and sponsorships while participating in business expos.
