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.
While images of whirring laser beams still conjure thoughts of technophilic futures, the technology is already hard at work at Fayetteville Laser. There, technicians wield noninvasive medical lasers that renovate bods with treatments ranging from body contouring to cellulite reduction. Their Contoura super-pulsed laser works to blast inches off of abdomens, thighs, and buttocks, and their Irradia laser reduces pain and inflammation associated with chronic illness or thinking too hard about how gravity works.
Pine Valley Family Dentistry's Dr. A.T. Bassiri employs a friendly staff and more than 15 years of dental experience to maintain oral health and beautify teeth in patients aged 3 and older. Led by a philosophy of patient comfort and education, Dr. Bassiri and the staff take time to explain each finding during examinations and consultations. The doctor also keeps patients in the know during every procedure, explaining the details of everything from basic cleanings to tooth extractions. He ensures that patients come in for treatments relaxed by broadcasting Barry White singing nursery rhymes on his office's flat-screen TVs.
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.
