Referral To Our Office Not Required

Posted on Oct 29, 2013 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

As a dental specialist, most new patients are referred to our office by others in the medical and dental community. For these, I see myself as a member of the ‘care team’ and interact with general dentists, orthodontists, prosthodontists, endodontists, plastic surgeons and others to create ultimate outcomes of our mutual patients.

However, for those who are interested in our services, patients can, and do, come to us on their own. For example, some patients haven’t been to the dentist in years and come because they suspect gum disease is present. Some come because they are unhappy with having a “gummy smile.” Some are the result of their long-time dentist retiring and they haven’t yet found the ‘right fit’ for their regular dental care.

Western North Carolina is fortunate to have so many outstanding health care professionals for the warm, friendly smiles that reside here. We are happy to support our fellow practitioners as well as offer a ‘front door’ for those who have pertinent needs. Feel free to call and inquire about your periodontal health and appearance! We’re as close as 828-274-9440!
