What Our Patients Are Saying
  • "Dr. Gentry is the only dentist I will ever go to, in fact I took my time and found her when she had relocated. If you are afraid of going to a dentist because of the fear of pain, then Dr. Gentry is the dentist for you. Painless injections. It's amazing. She is very personable and so is her staff. Dr. Gentry is the only dentist you will ever go to after your first visit. "

  • "Dr. Gentry has been My Dentist for the majority of the last ten years since I relocated to the Charlotte area. She is the best Dentist I have had. The care given by her and her very professional staff is designed to keep the patient as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend her practice to anyone seeking dental care."

  • "As you walk in and are happily greeted by reception the first thing you notice is the care that has been taken to create a relaxing and comfortable environment while you wait, albeit a short wait. Perhaps most importantly your cleaning is done with the gentlest touch as every care is taken to avoid discomfort. Dr. Gentry is every bit an educator as she is a highly skilled dentist. While being seen she thoroughly explained, in easily understood terms, what was going on behind my lips and how to best continue good oral hygiene practices. Gentry Dental sets the bar high."

Preventive Care

We believe that prevention is the key to achieving and maintaining optimum oral health, and it’s our hope that by seeing you every six months for cleanings and check-ups, we can help you avoid a number of uncomfortable dental issues.

Our highly skilled hygienists not only remove the plaque buildup that causes issues such as tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease, they also take the time to educate you about proper home care and the importance of your oral health.

Periodontal Health

During your regular check-ups, we’ll screen you for gum disease, which occurs when plaque and tartar build-up cause your gums to separate from your teeth, allowing harmful bacteria to attack and infect the tissues and bone supporting your teeth.

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, and it’s at this stage, that you may notice that your gums bleed when you brush your teeth. They may also appear red and swollen. The good news is that gingivitis can be effectively managed with a thorough cleaning and an improved home care routine. In fact, you may even be able to reverse gum disease in this stage.General Dentistry in Charlotte NC | Gentry Dental

Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease at which damage starts to occur. If left untreated, the infection will begin to destroy your gum tissue and bone, which will eventually lead to tooth loss. The bacteria from gum disease can actually enter your bloodstream and travel to other areas of your body. We now understand that this contributes to other health concerns such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

If you should find yourself facing gum disease, your trusted team at Gentry Dental is well equipped to help you. Periodontitis requires a deeper cleaning called scaling and root planing that reaches below the gum line to remove tartar and plaque build-up. Antibiotic therapy may also be necessary to combat infection. Dr. Gentry may want to see you for additional cleanings and check-ups throughout the year to help you effectively manage your condition.

When you come to Gentry Dental, we hope to build a lifelong relationship with you and your family, where we can help you achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime. Give us a call today to schedule your next appointment; we can’t wait to meet you!
