Since graduating in 1994 from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, general dentist Dr. Chris Bowman has made his home in Charlotte, where his practice, Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte, continues to brighten smiles. In addition to regular cleanings and family visits, Dr. Bowman places special emphasis on in cosmetic dentistry and invisible orthodontics, restoring crooked smiles to a straight, immaculate state. His experience has earned him the status of Clinical Instructor and Mentor for Six Month Smiles while providing Invisalign treatment for more than 12 years as well.
Zoom teeth-whitening treatments whiten teeth by up to 8–10 shades in one session, and custom-made whitening trays allow patients to polish their own chompers at home within about two weeks. To ensure the latest in dental techniques and services, Dr. Bowman attends an average of 100 hours of continuing education a year—far surpassing the state-mandated 15 push-ups.
At Day Break Massage & Wellness, therapists and aestheticians hope that time spent in their center is like hitting the pause button on a hectic day for clients. They start that process by talking to their clients and understanding their skin and body concerns before any procedure begins. At massage visits, personal goals may including stress reduction, muscle recovery, or improving flexibility. Aestheticians are also on hand to provide restorative spa services that include deep-cleansing facials, hydrating skin treatments, and body wraps that exfoliate better than falling asleep on the beach.
Doctors Stan Michalski, Richard Yeager, and Tom Pinnavaia make up a triad of dental health at My Dentists. Though the doctors come from different backgrounds, they all share a complete passion and love for dentistry. At My Dentists, they lead a team of hygienists and assistants in performing general and cosmetic dentistry. In addition to general dentistry services such as fillings, crowns, implants, and routine cleanings, the dentists perform cosmetic services, beautifying smiles through Invisalign and Zoom! whitening.
The staff members at Lake Pointe Family Dentistry believe that oral health care should be luxurious, not daunting. So, they've tucked their treatment rooms inside a spa and disguised appointments as indulgent getaways. The office's design seems to have borrowed its aesthetic from a Mediterranean temple, with its columns and flowing drapery in the lobby and crisp white and royal-blue color scheme.
Inside the treatment rooms, clients repose on massaging dental chairs while receiving a warm neck wrap and soothing eye pillows. They might also find their hands swaddled in a paraffin-wax treatment that encourages clients to stop hiding their hands under sock puppets.
It’s an experience completely unlike the ones you might find at a traditional dentist office, but Lake Pointe Family Dentistry’s focus is still on maintaining and beautifying smiles. Dr. Naureen Qazi works with her dental assistants to address tooth decay and a variety of restorative procedures, including crown placements, fillings, and implants. The Invisalign-certified dentist also oversees cosmetic strategies such as veneers and whitening.
When Dr. Saint Jean has a patient in his chair, he always takes time to emphasize preventative practices and educate them on appropriate methods. As a board-certified dentist, he tends to mouths with general and cosmetic services, and specializes in root canals, extractions, and the management of periodontal disease. No matter what the treatment, Dr. Jean makes client care his priority; as he states on his website, “I’m able to manage complex cases and reassure patients who may have anxiety about treatment. But I’m also comfortable referring my patients to specialists when their credentials are needed.” Dr. Jean also understands the importance of an attractive smile, approaching teeth whitening, veneer placement, and novelty-fang removal with the same dedication.
Dr. Herbert Vu of Myers Park Dental Care is trained to perform the full range of dental services, and frequently does. At his practice, patients can make a single stop for everything from cosmetic veneers and surgical extractions to cleanings and fillings, saving time that might've been spent wrangling appointments with numerous different specialists. True to his jack-of-all-trades approach, Dr. Vu also offers orthodontic regimens including Invisalign and FastBraces, and even performs free consultations to determine whether or not patients might be candidates for a little smile straightening. He and his cheery staff treats patients young and old, caring for patients from the first baby tooth to the latest cybernetic e-tooth implant.
