Please note, the purpose of this email is not to go into detail about our office protocols during the current COVID- 19 response. We always have and will continue to maintain the highest level of aseptic and sterilization techniques. Regarding our office hours, we are presently closed as a result of recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the American Dental Association. For patients with upcoming appointments, trust that we will communicate directly with you via phone call to reschedule them as we learn more about our current situation.

For the time being, we want to extend to you, our patients, the helping hand you need during these times for all things dental.

For example, we ask that you please find and follow our social media pages, pinnixandbetancourt on Instagram, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney on Facebook, and @BlakeneySmiles on Twitter. We will use these social media outlets as a means of communication and also a way to provide a Question & Answer forum for general questions anyone may have.

For personal/private needs related to ongoing treatment or your dental health, we will be available to schedule a virtual consultation. This may be accomplished via FaceTime, Zoom meeting or other platform whereby we may have a face to face encounter. These will be available to you, our patient, as a courtesy.

These are unprecedented times for us all. We strive to be on the front edge of the capabilities and service we provide our patients. Much of that depends on our availability and communication. We are here and we will, across any medium possible, provide the guidance you need during these difficult times. We ask that you please reach out to us either via email to the office (, one of our social media platforms, or our phone line from which you can leave a message.

What to Ask Your Dentist Before Having Cosmetic Dentistry Done to Your Mouth By SEO Admin on January 07, 2013

Many people visit the dentist office for more than just a regular cleaning. Some people go to various cosmetic dentists for a complete smile makeover. If you have been searching for a South Charlotte dentist that can help you with your cosmetic dentistry, then you need to also take into consideration what questions you should ask before paying for a procedure.

Am I a candidate for your services?
This question is important because not every dentist can perform the types of procedures that you want done. They may have a list of cosmetic procedures they can do, but if you don't fit the qualified mold or you want something they can't do, then you will need to find another dentist.

Are my goals realistic?
Your expectations of the procedures may be realistic, but are your goals realistic? Can your cosmetic dentist eventually get you to your goals? More importantly, are you willing to do what you have to do to get you to a place where you can meet your goals? You may have to change your diet and spend some days at the dentist office.

Can you show me a computer simulation of the changes?
Before you spend your money, you may want to know exactly how the end result will look. Many cosmetic dentists can create a computer simulation that shows what the changes will look like on your smile after they are made. If your potential dentist can't show you a simulation, you may want to consider trying to find someone else. Some cosmetic procedures take a long time to reverse.

Use these questions the next time you talk to a cosmetic dentist about your smile makeover. It will make your experience more enjoyable and give you more confidence in the procedures.
