Greetings from Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney

Drs. John Pinnix and George Betancourt would like to extend our sincerest best wishes to you and your families. We hope that you continue to navigate these most difficult times with strength, perseverance and the promise that we will all soon return to 'business as usual'.

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. While we may be limited in terms of office hours and available services, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt remain available to you via other modalities. 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. We will make every effort possible to get back to you in a timely manner.

From Drs. Pinnix, Betancourt and our entire staff at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we hope you and your families manage the COVID-19 pandemic with an abundance of care, caution and respect for the well being of our community.

Did You Choose the Right Charlotte Dentist?

By SEO Admin on July 22, 2013

Maintaining ones dental health can be vital to a persons overall well-being. People who neglect their teeth and gums put other parts of their bodies at risk. Because of the importance of dental health, people take the time to find the best dentist for their needs. They do not want to risk choosing the wrong dentist who will only make their oral health conditions worse. When they want the assurance that they chose the best from among Charlotte dentists, people can be on the lookout for some important details and request an appointment or more information from our cosmetic dentists, Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix.

People can be assured that they have chosen the ideal provider from among Charlotte dentists by trusting their instincts. If they feel at ease when they walk in the dentists office and have no problem trusting their providers advice, people can be assured that their dentist has their best interests in mind. Patients can avoid choosing the wrong dentist by considering the reviews of other patients. Patients who say that their dentists are trustworthy and have improved their oral health may be trusted as reliable sources when people are looking for a new dentist. Likewise, dental providers with bad reviews may be avoided altogether.

Parents who are tasked with finding good dentists also may be concerned about choosing the wrong dentist. As they consider Charlotte dentists, parents might consider a providers demeanor toward his or her pediatric patients. Dentists who speak more to technicians and staff than to the pediatric patient in the chair might be regarded as less than ideal. Pediatric dentists ideally should engage young patients to put children at ease and ensure parents that their kids will be cared for well. As with their own dental care, parents are encouraged to rely on referrals, as well as their instincts, when selecting a dentist for their children.

If you're uncomfortable with your dentist in Charlotte, Blakeney, Ballantyne, South Park or anywhere in South Charlotte, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney is accepting new patients every day and would welcome you to contact us by calling 704-543-1102 to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix about your dental health needs.
