Our mission is providing our community with great smiles and superior oral health, using high quality state-of-the-art dental services in the most modern facility available in northeastern North Carolina.
We pride ourselves in providing excellence in dental services, committing to principled leadership within our community, and always seeking to advance dentistry in the interest and well being of our patients, in the pursuit of achieving their ultimate satisfaction.
The field of dentistry strives to improve the quality of life in communities. Dentistry has come a long way in the last 25 years, and especially in the last 5 to 10 years the changes have accelerated as new technologies have made dentistry, not only safe but more comfortable as well. Dentistry today not only removes decay and fixes broken teeth, but performs many other important functions. Research in the last decade shows that diseases in the mouth can be large contributing factors to serious illnesses such as coronary heart disease, cancer, and low birth weight babies. Educating patients of these facts is a large responsibility in our profession.
We fix smiles, not teeth! In our opinion, none of our patients should have to wear dentures or partials. Implants and bridges are far superior tooth replacement modalities and are a large part of our practice. Almost anybody who has lost a tooth is a candidate for these treatments.
As baby-boomers mature, the number of large amalgam (silver) fillings that need to be replaced is staggering. High-end esthetic treatments such as ceramic onlays and porcelain crowns are becoming the standard of care for replacing the hundreds of millions of fillings that have been placed over the last 50 years.
Non-invasive periodontal (gum) therapies makes prevention and treatment of periodontal disease a much more pleasant experience for the patient. We have been highly trained and are very experienced in not only these procedures, but many other therapies.
We are excited to be part of the field of dentistry and all of the potential that it holds for our friends on the Outer Banks and in northeastern North Carolina.
