These guys are the best!!!! If Dr Pinnex sees something cosmetically that he can improve quickly he just does it. My front teeth had little chips on the bottom and he took the time to smooth them out. Dr B does the same. I had a tooth fall out and it is a long process to replace it. He made me an Invisalign tray with a fake tooth so I would not feel insecure while waiting for my permanent replacement at no charge. The entire group are so thoughtful and loving. They have become more like family than just my dentist❤️ I highly recommend !!!! They care about every detail big or small. They truly want you to have a beautiful healthy smile.

Hands down, the most comfortable I've ever felt at a dentist office. I came in with lots of anxiety and fear.. knowing I have a lot of work that needs to be done. They immediately made me feel safe, comfortable, and did not shame me for how my teeth looked! We quickly came up with a plan and I left feeling super confident and excited to come back and get started! He even took my anxiety into consideration and reminded me to try and not get overwhelmed. To take things one step at a time and that we would eventually get to where i need to be! I highly recommend. Everyone in the office is super kind and friendly!

We are proud to provide comprehensive dental care for families from Charlotte, Ballantyne, Gastonia, and beyond in one convenient location. Because our dentists have advanced training in many areas of dentistry, we can meet a wider range of dental needs.

Visit Us at Our Sister Location Precision Dental Partners in Ballantyne, NC

In the simplest terms, dentistry has become too corporate and private equity has encroached upon the industry. That's not the case at Precision Dental Partners, a practice founded with the vision and guidance of Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt. Based in Ballantyne, NC, Precision Dental Partners answers the needs of patients instead of shareholders.

Our dentists are not interested in over-diagnosing dental problems to create volume. There won't be a short exam after a routine cleaning, or sheets of paper recommending dental treatments that are hard to understand. Precision Dental Partners empowers patients to identify their oral health needs. The patient's goals and the doctor's input are united to develop an effective plan of action.

Digital smile design

Digital smile design is a state-of-the-art technology that allows us to exceed patient expectations and encourage patient involvement.

Have been a patient for many years. Broke a crown on Wednesday afternoon. Thursday morning I was in the chair getting the repair done.

Can’t say enough good things about advanced dentistry. It is truly personal dentistry.

As always, Dr. Betancourt did a wonderful job of taking care of a painful dental problem, and was willing to do the whole procedure while I was there at the first visit for this problem. Also, he was very kind as always, too.
