Dr. David Yu found his calling in an unexpected place: Haiti. On a mission trip during his undergraduate years of college, Dr. Yu saw how badly the Haitian people needed dental care, and, right then and there, he decided he would do something about it. He ended up going to dental school at the University of North Carolina alongside Dr. Michael Rhyne, who now practices with him at Dental Center of Charlotte. The two dentists provide an extensive list of dental services that include cosmetic, preventative, and restorative procedures, and Dr. Yu stays true to his original altruistic mission by volunteering for groups in Charlotte. To aid them in their services, the staff at Dental Center of Charlotte wields such high-tech devices as an intraoral camera and digital x-rays, which emit 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays and 100% fewer hexes than a mysterious fortuneteller. They also mill crowns quickly on site and offer sedation dentistry for those with fears of the dentist.
Dr. Porter is a Charlotte native and one of the state's leading cosmetic and general dentists. He graduated from the University of Chapel Hill in 1994 and has been practicing dentistry with tool-wielding panache ever since. Dr. Porter's state-of-the-art office and kind, competent staff help patients attain ultimate levels of comfort and satisfaction. With today's Groupon clenched between your pearly whites, or shaking in the grip of chattering wind-up teeth, come down to the office for an exam, cleaning, and x-rays—the trifecta of oral-health fundamentals. You'll leave with teeth so squeaky clean and thoroughly vetted that corrupt spinach will slide right over its favorite crevices, and a force field of spotless shine will repel Milky Duds from your molars.
South Charlotte Dentistry’s cushy chocolate and ivory interior and the mesmerizing fish tank and free WiFi in the waiting room steep patients in comfort from the moment they set foot inside. Personal video glasses for TV or movie watching during the procedure extend good vibes, making any patient's stay almost as comfortable as a day at the techno-beach.
The mouth doctors at Art of Modern Dentistry's Lincoln Park and South Loop offices hail from some of the top dental institutions in the country and attend to the multitudinous needs of teeth with preventive, restorative, and aesthetic treatments. As patients recline in comfy exam chairs while watching movies flash across flat-screen TVs, dental hygienists evict tartar and temporary tooth tattoos during routine cleanings. X-rays capture images of roots and jawbones that dentists can later glue to their break-room collage, and whitening procedures brighten smiles by removing coffee and tea stains. The team also performs surgical procedures, such as implanting custom-made artificial teeth.
