Cleaning and preventive services in Ballantyne NC

Teeth Cleaning

We provide professional teeth cleaning in Ballantyne, NC, to help our patients achieve the smile that they want and keep dental conditions at bay. We start with a physical examination of your mouth, checking around your teeth and gums to find any signs of dental problems before we proceed with the teeth cleaning process.

We use the latest dental technology to remove tartar and plaque build-up, leaving only a beaming white set of teeth. We also offer expert flossing to make sure that there is no leftover debris stuck between your teeth. Lastly, we apply a fluoride treatment to help protect your teeth against cavities and gum disease.

Disease Prevention

Dental diseases often start undetected. Whenever dental problems manifest themselves, they are already in a worse stage. Fortunately, we can prevent dental diseases if they are diagnosed early.

At Aten & Garofalo Dentistry, we help patients to prevent dental diseases with our reliable dental checkup and diagnosis services. Our experienced dentists can detect problem areas in your mouth and will advise you of the best course of action to prevent diseases from developing or getting worse.

I and my family have been patients of Dr. Aten since almost the time her practice opened about 19-20 years ago. We always receive a high level of service, professionalism, and genuine client care from the team and highly recommend their services to others. Kayla worked with me this morning and is very personable and skilled, which I would expect from Dr. Aten’s group. Check them out if you are looking for a quality provider.

My husband and I had moved from Louisiana to Charlotte and were in search of a good dental practice. My daughter recommended Aten & Garofalo so I booked an appointment. The first visit was very thorough in terms of history, medications, etc. The staff was very friendly, my hygienist Kayla was terrific, and Dr. Aten was so nice and friendly. I highly recommend this practice!

My husband and I had to find a new dentist after moving from out-of-state, and my daughter recommended this practice because she and her toddler son like Dr. Aten and her staff so much. My husband needed emergency treatment and he was accommodated quickly and very satisfactorily by Dr. Aten and Lyndsey. Cindy discussed the projected costs with him and told him what was covered by insurance…

Dr. Garofalo and his team truly care about you and your teeth health! He listens to your concerns and explains everything before, during and after your dental work. He is passionate about oral health, honest and kind as is his staff.

I had a crown prep today which was the first procedure other than cleaning that I have had done in this office. It went very well. I do not take Novocain and the procedure was painless. This is my 9th crown and I have never had the temporary fit so well. Dr. Aten and Katrina, her dental assistant, were a great team. I highly recommend Dr. Aten. the whole office staff is wonderful.

If I could give Dr. Garofalo and his entire staff 10 stars, I would! Jill is absolutely AMAZING, so compassionate and kind! Dr. Garofalo is so incredibly patient and explains everything as he goes! I am very fearful of getting any kind of numbing and am a fainter, so Jill and Dr. Garofalo talked me all the way through it since I was getting a crown. They numbed my tooth, did the work, and I didn’t faint! As soon as my boys outgrow their pediatric dentist, I am taking them to Dr. Garofalo — the BEST dentist in all of Charlotte!!

Another great visit to Aten and Garofalo today. Their team is always ready, and even more so with the COVID-19 situation. I was not worried about their team being ready to deal with COVID-19. I have been going to Dr. Aten for 15 years. Dr. Aten and Dr. Garofalo run their practice on the Ritz Carlton Service Model. Everyone from the front desk to the to the Dental Hygienists are always in a good mood. The best part is they offer 7:00 a.m. appointments a couple times per week, and they always keep up with the latest technology. John Palko

Dr. Garofalo continues to be a great dentist. I needed a chipped front tooth repaired, I was in the very next morning and had a perfect repaired tooth in less than an hour. Great “bed side” manor, always something new like learning he’s picked up photography and having a real discussion. Often times the small talk is painfully routine but he and his staff, it’s like family every time. Count yourself luckyif they are accepting new patients.

You know those places where you love the healthcare provider but hate the staff? Well, this is NOT that place! The staff are so friendly, helpful, professional and knowledgeable.
