iPads. Coffee. Neck pillows and blankets. These are all amenities typically found in a day spa, and they are just a few of the ways Dr. Maya V. Martin makes coming to the dentist feel like a luxury, not a chore. From the moment clients step into the office, the staff makes every effort possible to make them feel comfortable and at ease. Patients can relax knowing that the dental facility meets and surpasses all CDC and OSHA standards and is equipped with technology including a digital x-ray machine and intraoral cameras. For those who still have a few butterflies in their stomachs prior to a procedure, Village Dental offers sedation, nitrous oxide, and the option to have somebody stand in the room and wave their arms frantically as a distraction.
Andrew R. Farrell, DDS, and his staff understand that not everybody loves going to the dentist. That’s why they do everything they can to make the experience as comfortable as possible, whether they’re filling in a cavity, cleaning teeth during a routine checkup, or performing any number of other services. The secret to their success is the Isolite System's flexible mouthpiece, which gently keeps your mouth propped open while the dentist clears away plaque. The device simultaneously floods teeth with light, causing nocturnal fairies to scurry away so that Dr. Farrell can complete the treatment in a timelier fashion.
Licensed aesthetician Debby Runner helps whisk away wrinkles and blemishes using advanced skincare techniques. One of them, the HydraFacial system, was featured on an episode of The Doctors. It can purge dirt and dead skin cells from the pores and hydrate the skin, which helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and fine lines. Beyond basic skincare, Debbie also performs professional makeup applications for women and teens to bring out their natural beauty or jump-start their careers as mimes.
Dr. Christopher J. Gudger looks to advancements in dental technology to make his treatments as safe, pleasant, and thorough as possible. The office’s digital cone beam machine snaps high-definition, 3-D, surround-sound shots of teeth and bones to prepare Dr. Gudger for restorative procedures. Oral conscious sedation gives patients the option to go through surgery in a relaxed state while the senses are dulled, emerging on the other side with placid nerves and a gleaming grin.
Flat screen televisions, an elegant fountain, and cushioned chairs: this décor doesn’t grace an exclusive spa, but rather the welcoming confines of Atlantic Family Dental’s Raleigh and Garner offices. In each, a trio of compassionate dentists performs pediatric, cosmetic, and restorative procedures ranging from placing dental implants to performing annual cleanings and tooth pageants. No matter what the treatment, the staff puts patient care first, offering four kinds of sedation dentistry to alleviate apprehension and communicating in English and Spanish to better serve clients.
Dr. Brian Kelleher and his dedicated staff provide general, cosmetic, and surgical dentistry in a relaxing environment. He furthers fosters patients’ ease by employing efficient technology, including digital x-rays, which provide quick readouts while exposing recipients to 80% less radiation than standard scans. He also employs noninvasive ViziLite screenings to look for early signs of oral cancer.
While Dr. Kelleher is skilled in identifying and treating everyday issues and more serious concerns, he's also passionate about perfecting smiles to boost his patients' confidence. He can fit teeth with porcelain Lumineers to correct conditions ranging from discoloration to chips and gaps. In-office teeth-whitening treatments provide an alternate means of erasing enamel stains.
