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.
With more than 25 years of experience under each of their dental belts, Dr. Dorothy Jacobyansky and Dr. Jerry Caudill of Cross Creek Dental Care keep mouths of every age beaming healthily with advanced treatments and equipment. The dentists never take up a periodontal probe without first considering customer comfort, taking pains to eliminate pain during procedures that range from regular cleanings to cavity fillings, root canals, Invisalign, and teeth whitening. Further ensuring grins are taken care of, Dr. Jacobyansky and Dr. Caudill stay up-to-date on the latest in tooth-care practices by attending continuing education classes and participating in lengthy debates on the existence of the tooth fairy.
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.
At Triangle Family Dentistry, an environmentally friendly practice with three locations, dentists and hygienists maintain and improve on smiles with various services. The doctors, who specialize in Invisalign, Lumineers, sedation dentistry, and implant placement, firmly believe in dental education and prevention, which is why they stock their website full of dental videos and a detailed FAQ section that answers questions such as: "What should I do if a tooth is knocked out?", "Are silver fillings safe?", and "How can I tell if my dentist is a cyborg?"
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 10 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, be as good at explaining procedures as they are at performing them, and be able to name all 43 presidents in alphabetical order under local anesthesia.
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 by sponsoring the Carolina Mudcats and participating in business expos.

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
