  • "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."

Technology and Amenities

One thing you’ll notice right away about our office is the state-of-the-art technology we use. Dr. Gentry invests in the latest dental equipment because she knows that it makes your treatment procedures more effective, comfortable, and efficient. Here’s some of the technology you’ll find us using at our Beverly Woods, NC dental office.

Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) “The Wand”

One of the top reasons that people avoid going to the dentist is fear of shots. We get it- no one likes to have a shot, and it can be a source of great anxiety! Thankfully, modern technology has allowed us to eliminate painful injections.

Dr. Gentry uses a device called “The Wand” or Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) instead of traditional methods to numb a tooth. The Wand is a computer-controlled anesthesia machine that is more comfortable and less intimidating than a standard shot. Most of our patients don’t even know they have been given an injection!

Our goal is to provide the most gentle, comfortable dental treatment we can, and The Wand is another tool we use to achieve that. Don’t let anxiety keep you from seeing the dentist regularly- you can trust that we will do everything possible to give you a great experience!

Digital Dentistry

Digital technology offers numerous benefits to both our doctor and our patients:

  • Digital x-rays emit 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays, and the images are immediately accessible.
  • Digital sensors allow us to receive the clearest image possible for a more accurate diagnosis.
  • Digital impressions make the previously messy process of taking impressions much more comfortable and efficient for patients.
  • Intraoral cameras allow us to show you color images of your teeth so you have a better understanding of your treatment needs.

Isolite System

The latest in dental technology, the Isolite System can dramatically improve your comfort while having treatment at the dentist.

This system has a soft and flexible silicone mouthpiece that protects your throat from water and debris and provides a comfortable resting place for your jaw. It is connected to a vacuum attachment that removes all the water and saliva while also providing a dry field for improved quality of your dental work. 

The result is a safer, faster, and more comfortable appointment for you. Ask us about it at your next visit!

Intraoral Camera

Our practice utilizes intraoral cameras to help our patients better understand the condition of their teeth and mouths. Using a small "wand" with a camera on the end, we take digital photographs of your teeth that show up instantly on a computer monitor by your treatment chair. These enlarged images allow both you and the doctor to view and discuss problem areas, such as cracks or cavities in your teeth that may be causing pain. 

We want our patients to be fully informed about their oral health and to understand why certain treatments are recommended. This is just one of the ways we use the latest technology to provide the highest level of care for our patients. 

Tooth With FillingTooth With Dental Restoration

3-D Cone Beam Imaging

A 3-D image of your mouth allows us to get an in-depth picture of your teeth and bone structure. Dr. Gentry uses these images to determine whether you have enough healthy bone structure to support a dental implant and exactly where she should place dental implants during your surgery to ensure success. 3-D imaging allows Dr. Gentry to surgically place your implants with accuracy and precision.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

CEREC technology has completely streamlined the dental crown process. 3-D imaging allows us to scan an image of your tooth that Dr. Gentry can customize and use to fabricate your new crown. The image is sent directly to a milling machine located in our office, which fabricates your crown from high-quality porcelain while you wait.

This means you’ll leave our office the same day with a completely finished, customized restoration that you can enjoy and rely on. With CEREC, what used to take two to four weeks to complete now only takes a few hours!

Rotary Endodontics

Receiving the news that you need root canal therapy is never great; however, Dr. Gentry utilizes rotary endodontics to make the process more comfortable. Using the electrically powered tools of rotary endodontics instead of manual instruments makes for a much quieter, reliable, and smoother root canal treatment than ever before.

Coffee Station

Here at Gentry Dental, we have a coffee bar with complimentary Keurig coffee! 

Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces

Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces

One thing universally hated about going to the dentist is the sound of the drill. You know what I’m talking about- that high-pitched, whiney sound when you’re having a filling. It’s like nails on chalkboard! At Gentry Dental, we have found a few ways rid our office of that sound!

First is that Dr. Gentry uses a newer type of “drill”, known as an electric handpiece. It differs from the older air-driven handpieces in that it is quieter and runs more smoothly. This means that there will be much less vibration and noise during a procedure. It is also faster at removing decay and preparing your teeth for crowns, which cuts down on the time it takes to do your treatment.

We also provide you with noise-cancelling headphones, tuned to your favorite music, to block out the sounds while we are working. Our patients have said that this helps immensely and allows them to relax and focus on the music instead of on what we are doing.

We are proud to offer all of the newest technologies to make your experience as pleasant as possible!

Gentry Dental offers quality dentistry with exceptional patient care and customer service.
