What brought you to North Carolina and Louisburg in particular?


As a soldier, I was stationed at Fort Bragg and then when I got out, I wanted to serve in an area that was lacking good quality dental care.

What dental services do you perform at the Franklin Plaza Dentist Office?

I have experience in all aspects of general dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry, crown & bridge, and even complicated surgeries.

Is there anything in dentistry that you don’t do?

Yes, there are some specialized dental procedures that I wouldn’t be able to perform myself, but with four different doctors on staff at Franklin Plaza Dentist, we are able to offer different specialized skill sets all in one place.

What about us, anti-dentites, who are a little scared of the dentist?

Well, that’s understandable, especially if you’ve had bad dental experiences in the past, but nowadays, we have many different options to make the patient less anxious.

You mean like sedation pills?

Yes, but I personally would use that last, since pills have different effects on different people. At Franklin Plaza Dentist, we offer free sedation consults to see if laughing gas or IV sedation would work better. But either way, our goal is to make the patient as comfortable as possible.

What can I do to whiten my teeth?

The Franklin Plaza Dentist office has four different choices for bleaching your teeth. However, the most effective, as far as time is concerned, is the in-office Zoom! treatments that uses a light with results in less than an hour. You can find out more at www.zoomnow.com.

Are you offering any specials on that?

Yes, we have a special Zoom price until the end of the year. Franklin Plaza Dentist also has a home whitening kit giveaway with a paid exam and cleaning.

Do you customize dentures?

Yes, we offer various types of partial and full dentures, including Valplast flexible dentures, standard acrylic and cast metal. And depending on the patient, we also offer implant retained overdentures.

What are implant retained overdentures?

Overdentures are dentures that are stabilized by mini-implants placed in your jaw.

What if I have an old denture that doesn’t fit?

Yes, we may be able to reline your old denture set if you are not a candidate for overdentures.

Do you do braces at Franklin Plaza Dentist?

Yes, we do offer Invisalign invisible braces for simpler orthodontic cases, but we have a referral network for complex cases.

I’ve been reading about performance athletic mouthwear and how more and more athletes are using them to compete better. Can you tell me a little more about that?

Yes, not only will performance nightguards protect your teeth in contact sports, they will also make you perform better. As far as I know, UnderArmour is the only company that makes this mouthwear right now and we are the only authorized dealer in Louisburg. It’s really amazing. Athletes should really check out their website at www.pattersondental.com/underarmour/

So should I wait until next year to see you if nothing is hurting right now?

Heck no. Small dental problems are usually not painful and you really don’t feel anything until they get really bad. In fact, sometimes a tooth can’t be saved because you’ve waited so long to fix it. You should also consider using up your dental insurance benefits before they expire at the end of the year, because benefits don’t roll over.

What dental insurances do you accept?

We accept all dental insurances, but we are only in network with Delta, Blue Cross, Medicaid, NC HealthChoice, Aetna, Ameritas, MetLife, Cigna and Dentamax.
