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.
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 Apex. To keep up with the demands of each office, Dr. Riccobene works alongside 22 other dentists, including specialists in oral surgery, endodontics, and pediatric dentistry, 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.
Now in its eighth year, the Downtown Raleigh Living Tour sends casual browsers and serious shoppers alike on a self-guided exploration of downtown dwellings. Contemporary condos, beautifully restored homes, and burgeoning neighborhoods join forces to present a mixture of housing styles and locations, enabling tour-takers to survey the city's full spectrum of living options. Information hotspots along the route dole out budget-saving tips, and for additional suggestions, most homeowners will be available at featured abodes to answer questions and make sure excitable garages stay on their leashes.
In order to gain further perspective on urban existence, participants are encouraged to offset pad prospecting with stops at some of Raleigh's standout amenities. Restaurants, unique retail shops, and arts and cultural venues intersect searches with relaxing respites, which let groups kick back and drink in the city's ambiance without having to taste-test the water in each of its penny fountains.
Even as a teenager, Chintan Patel knew what he wanted to do with his life. He spent two years in high school shadowing his family dentist and decided to dedicate himself to helping others by restoring their smiles and self-confidence. After earning his dental degree—the first in his proud family to become a doctor—and working for several years in Florida, Dr. Patel returned home to North Carolina. He begins each day at Falls Lake Dental with the goal of serving patients with the same passion and care he witnessed in his high-school mentor.
Dr. Patel is an expert in procedures ranging from bone grafting and dental-implant installation to in-office Sapphire teeth-whitening treatments. His patients enjoy amenities
that include warm blankets, a beverage bar, and convenient computer kiosks where they can draft love letters to healthy teeth.
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.
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.
