Drs. Acampado and Savage believe in providing the best quality of care for their patients. Educating and helping the patient to make informed decisions and taking preventive measures are key to developing successful long term oral health. The required amount of continuing education for a dentist in the state of North Carolina is 15 credit hours a year. Both doctors take approximately 100 credit hours a year because of their commitment to excellence. The products they use, as well as the procedures and methods implemented in the practice, are all based on sound scientific data, research and evidence based dentistry.

Our doctors are available after hours to meet the needs of all patients of record for any emergencies or concerns, big or small.

It is important that the patient feel safe and comfortable about the care they are receiving.
Our ofﬁce uses a device called Dental Vibe that provides pain free injections. The way it works is through vibration that is simultaneously applied as a counter-stimulation to an injection, where its sensation reaches the brain ﬁrst and blocking the feeling of pain.
Our doctors believe in the concept of functional esthetics. This means that in order to maximize the longevity of your dental work, everything has to function correctly. An analogy we like to use is, "What good are four brand new tires if the alignment is not correct?" The same goes for dentistry. An excellent esthetic outcome is important, however, if your bite is not functioning correctly, your teeth/dental work will not last as long.
There are numerous bleaching products out there but all are targeted for people who have the standard yellow staining. The Kor Whitening system is the only product that is documented to provide whitening for people who have tetracycline staining (the grey staining).
Do you or does your companion experience excessive snoring or excessive daytime sleepiness? You or your companion may have a breathing disorder known as OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA (OSA). Research has shown that sleep appliances are quite effective for treating mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and can now be considered as an alternative to other treatments. Sleep appliances offer several advantages over other treatments. They are inexpensive compared with other treatments, they are non-surgical, easy to fabricate, and well accepted by patients. Our doctors and staff are trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of patients with possible sleep and airway/oxygenation issues. If you would like more information about how we can treat OSA, contact our ofﬁce today!
