Meet Our Team
Dr. Heather Gentry
Dr. Gentry is originally from Alabama and attended undergrad there, graduating Summa Cum Laude with Special Honors in Biology in 2001. She was then accepted into the University of Alabama School of Dentistry, graduating in 2005 with honors.
With over 20 years of experience in the field, Dr. Gentry has a comprehensive background in dentistry. She has held almost every position in the industry- from receptionist, assistant, associate dentist, and now, as the owner of her practice. It's this experience that has led her to develop her own practice philosophy, which is to treat every patient as one would treat their family- with dignity, respect, kindness, and compassion.
Dr. Gentry and her staff, most of whom have been with the practice for years, strive to provide the best dental experience possible. They pride themselves on getting to know their patients on a personal level, and they take all the time necessary to explain treatment procedures and to answer any questions so that their patients feel both comfortable and informed. This is how she's built her reputation over the years for providing the highest quality dental care, and it's also why she was voted "Best Dentist in Charlotte."
You'll also notice that Dr. Gentry strives to provide the most current procedures available, and for this reason, she has invested in state-of-the-art dental technology. She also continues to take hundreds of hours of continuing education, in and out of the country, in order to best serve her patients.
Dr. Gentry moved to Charlotte in 2008 and considers the Queen City her home. She and her fiancee purchased a house just minutes from the practice in Barclay Downs, and reside there with their ever-changing number of rescue dogs. Besides her passion for dentistry, her main interests are dog rescue, interior decorating, and yoga.

Minerva has been helping patients in the dental field for over thirty-five years. She received her training at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC. She’s originally from Campina, Romania ; however, she’s lived in Fort Mill, SC since 1978.
Because Minerva has been with the practice so long, she’s come to know her patients not only in a professional way, but also a personal one. She says, “I love helping people and love working with my hands.”
When she’s not at the office, Minerva can be found reading, gardening, walking, or traveling.
Billie - Hygienist
Billie received her training from Lenoir-Rhyne University and Central Piedmont Community College for dental hygiene. She’s been working in the dental field for twenty years and with Dr. Gentry for over three years.

Outside of the office, Billie enjoys photography, cooking, music, the arts, and hiking in the NC mountains.

Carla is the proud mom of one daughter, Marvetta, and she enjoys spending time with family and friends, attending jazz concerts, and relaxing on the beach when she’s not helping patients.
Carolyn - Dental Assistant
