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.
Most people hate going to the dentist. That's why Dr. Lindsey Willams and her staff at Dental Oasis of Clayton work hard to make every patient feel comfortable. It starts with the look and feel of the office, and the friendly staff who make sure to call each and every patient by name instead of barcode number. Beverages are offered to those waiting for an appointment to begin, and, to further patient comfort, they offer complimentary massage treatments and Netflix and Pandora access during appointments. Dental Oasis offers everything from general services such as fillings and cleanings to restorative procedures such as root canals, crowns, and short-term braces.
Dr. Adam Moore’s dream of opening an intimate, family-oriented practice that provided a comprehensive array of dental services became the foundation for Moore Smiles Family Dentistry. With the aid of his skilled staff, Dr. Moore does everything from protecting molars with crowns to straightening them with clear Invisalign aligners rather than ironing them. Whether he’s applying veneers or brightening smiles with in-office or take-home BriteSmile teeth-whitening treatments, Dr. Moore explains each procedure and listens to and discusses any of his patients’ concerns
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. Hamid Rouhani of Bright Smiles Family Dentistry knows so much about teeth that he teaches other dentists at the University of North Carolina. But that doesn’t mean he has stopped learning. A consummate student, he continually renews his skills and techniques at the Dawson Academy, soaking up solutions for TMJ, misaligned teeth, and cosmetic concerns. Even patients with damaged teeth—or no teeth at all—can renew their smiles, thanks to his advanced veneer and dental-implant services.
Dr. Leo Haydt graduated from the hallowed halls of Boston University Dental School, where he learned to repair worn-out smiles with a dual emphasis in oral surgery and implant dentistry. Now, he leads the team at Tryon Family Dentistry, treating teeth with the latest technological gear, including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays that scale back the radiation and general nosiness employed by traditional x-rays. Their slate of cosmetic services, such as Invisalign and Cerec One-Visit Dentistry, improve smiles in an abbreviated time frame, and a focus on sedation dentistry inspires an easy visit.
Committed to supporting its community, the practice sponsors seasonal charity drives, participates in philanthropic walks and events, and donates services.
