I cannot give Dr. White and his staff a high enough rating. He is very caring and takes the time to explain procedures. All my referrals have been very pleased with his services. He makes you feel at ease.

I wouldn't send someone I DIDN'T like here! This place is horrific. My aunt was admitted yesterday, after having her knee replaced Wednesday. The first day, they made her sit in her wheelchair, bending her knee at a 90 degree angle. That's a HUGE no-no for knee replacements! They won't give her water, they let her sugar drop to 40 because they didn't feed her, they won't give her the prescribed ice pack for her knee, which is now so swollen it looks like it's going to pop. The therapist refuses to follow the surgeon's orders for therapy and said, "It doesn't matter what that doctor told you. You're here now. You're going to do therapy MY way." We are in the process of calling adult protective services, filing a complaint with the ombudsman, and contacting the health department. This is outrageous. My poor aunt is afraid to say anything because she's worried they will treat her worse. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stay out of this dump! Also, I'm a registered nurse, and I know a thing or two about this type of situation. I just happen to be in Ohio and unable to travel to advocate for her in person. If you love your family member, keep them far away from Emerald Ridge!

My wife and I have been seeing Dr. White for our dental care and that of our children for over 20 years. We are well into our 60s, so we've seen many different dentists in our time as we've moved through several states before settling here in the Asheville area. Dr. White grew up here in Asheville and was educated at UNC Chapel Hill, one of the finest schools in the world. We have never been more pleased than with the care we have received from Dr. White. I do not make a statement such as that capriciously. I have highly sensitive teeth resulting in my developing a phobia of the dentist early on in my life. Getting me to sit in a dentist's chair at all is remarkable in itself. When it comes to dental care I am not an easy person to please. To make matters worse I have average teeth at best. I've been around health care professionals all my life. My father practiced medicine for over 50 years. My wife is an RN. Practicing medicine is a science with a good dose of art heaped in. Make no mistake, I know a good medical professional when I see one. Dr. White bears all the hallmarks of a top shelf medical professional. He truly is just that, top shelf. Additionally, I have recommended Dr. White to others, some of which have needed extensive work. All of those people I sent to Dr. White thanked me profusely for that introduction.

Very old equipment and hyper aggressive hygenist who did not mind causing pain during cleaning, and worked diligently to find future dental work for me to have and to sell me tooth bleaching and prescription toothpaste. Felt to me like they thought my mouth was a goldmine. I haven't seen a dental office use this antiquated type of xray equipment in 30 years.

This guy is a horrible dentist. You might think he is doing a good job right now, but down the road you will find out from multiple dentists that he is not good at at his job at all. He was such a jerk to me that I almost walked out, and I really should have. He cost me thousands.

Elliott, James C Dr Pa
I saw Dr. Elliott as a referral from my regular dentist due to a bad root canal. He tapped on my tooth for 10 minutes and told me to get it pulled. I have Delta Dental Insurance and was assured that Delta would pay for the visit. Then I received a bill since Elliott's office had coded the visit as an examination rather than a consultation. I get two examinations a year (which go with tooth cleanings), and three consultations. It being September, my exams were used up, but I have had no consults this year (I get three annually). I verified this with Delta, called Elliott's office and was told "too bad, we only bill as exams." So be forewarned.

Smile Starters Asheville
DO NOT GO HERE. They are very rude and unprofessional. They are rough with children, no matter the age, and they don't let parents come back. They also restrain children. Last time I was a patient there is heard little kids screaming for their mommy.

I was terrified of dental visits, but with the care I receive with Drs. Kennerly and Ledford now I make my appointments with ease. They listen and provide outstanding service. The dental hygienists are great too. I won't go to any other dentist! To any other "chickens" out there..this is the place to go for all your dental needs.

Every crown this man put in my mouth has fallen off. He did a root canal which stayed infected for three and a-half years. Stay away from this hack and find yourself a better dentist!

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
