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.

What Are Dental Implants? Our Charlotte NC Dentists Explain.

By Dr. Pinnix on August 19, 2013


Are your teeth getting so bad that your friends and family are beginning to ask you why you dont just give in and get them pulled? Have you put a lot of money into trying to keep your teeth because you hate the thought of dentures? Maybe you already have dentures and you cant stand the way that they feel; slipping, sliding and falling out, basically making eating a miserable experience. You probably just want your own teeth back!

Dont give up hope yet. Ask your dentist to recommend you to a good cosmetic dentist. Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, a cosmetic dentist in Charlotte NC, is a great place to find the solution to your dental issues and questions. Do you want teeth that are secure and feel like your own? Many people in Charlotte have dental implants put in by cosmetic dentists, Dr. George Betancourt and Dr. John Pinnix.

Dental implants literally become part of your body. They are replacement roots for each individual tooth that you need replaced. They are made to match your own teeth and actually fuse to your bone, giving you the look and more importantly the feel of having your own teeth back again.

In Charlotte NC, dental implants are becoming more and more popular. People are realizing how many benefits there are to them, including no more washing bacteria from your painful, ill-fitting dentures and no more putting money into your continually disintegrating teeth.

Call your general dentist office today and ask for a recommendation to the Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney cosmetic dentist office.
