Dr. Heather Gentry | Dentist 28210

Dr. Heather Gentry, DMD

Dr. Gentry is originally from Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry with honors in 2005.

With over 25 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 provide the highest quality care along with compassion and understanding for her patients. 

Dr. Gentry and her team 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 exceptional dental care, and it's also why she was voted "Best Dentist in Charlotte" and "Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite".

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 has advanced training in full mouth reconstruction, smile makeovers, veneers, sleep apnea treatment, dental implants, same day crowns, and microscope dentistry. 

Dr. Gentry moved to Charlotte in 2008 and considers the Queen City her home. Besides her passion for dentistry, her main interests are animal rescue, interior decorating, gardening, and cooking.

Dr. Marilee Weaver was born and raised in Port Orange, Florida. She graduated from the University of Florida with a major in microbiology and cell science and minors in chemistry and art history. Dr. Weaver then completed her dental training and an additional Advanced Education in General Dentistry postdoctoral residency with the Gators.  

Since completing her formal education, Dr. Weaver has done continued education in the areas of endodontics, oral surgery, Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry.  She trained at the Dawson Academy and regularly attends meetings with the local dental chapters. She received Fellowship Awards through the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.  

Providing the most advanced, comprehensive dental care in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere is a priority for Dr. Weaver. She dedicates herself to understanding her patients' needs and exceeding their expectations. Dr. Weaver practices with the philosophy to treat every patient with compassion and a gentle artistic touch. 

Dr. Weaver enjoys traveling with her family, running and cheering on the Gators and Panthers!

Dr John Goelz


Dr. Goelz joined us earlier this year and we couldn’t be happier to have someone with his talents working with us! He enjoys focusing on night guards to treat jaw pain and headaches. His other main interest is using laser therapy (LANAP- laser assisted new attachment procedure) to treat gum disease. Gun disease is the number one reason for tooth loss in adults, but a laser can be utilized to painlessly treat the disease and increase stability of teeth. He is one of a small number of general dentists nationwide to be trained in lasers for treating periodontal disease. 
If you are experiencing jaw pain, clenching or grinding, or bleeding gums schedule an appointment with Dr. Goelz to evaluate you!
