I'm always skeptical of a new dentist when they can get you "right in." From the outside the place looked like a rundown house situated in a back alley of downtown. The assistant at this place was warm and friendly, made me very comfortable. The secretary was short with all responses and seemed put out to help anybody (maybe she was having a bad day). No less than 2 employees and the dentist himself exclaimed "no wonder you're in pain!" (my wisdom teeth are growing horizontal underneath my molars). I asked for a something for pain and was looked at like a pillbilly. IMO you can probably find a better dentist.

Beckley Area Medical Clinic
Dr. Grey Is a caring physician who politely listens to her patients and comes up with a sensible treatment. She has diagnosed a condition where previous doctors were unable to come up with a solution. As an Osteopath, she has extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and is especially good at treating back and muscle ailments in addition to other problems. The staff is friendly and efficient—didn't have to wait too long—just had enough time to consume a cup of complimentary coffee and snacks available in the waiting room.

I have been coming to Dr. Amy Dowdy for years. She has always been there for me and my husband. But have never taken the time to thank her and the staff there for all they do. Thanks Dr. Dowdy, Miranda, Terri, and your partner who works the front desk with you. They are always so happy and welcoming, always smiling. No matter how bad you feel you always feel better when you leave that office. Truly kind caring and loving people.

I am a over the road driver . I came home one weekend with a toothache . The dentist I had told me make an appointment ( very hard to do as a over the road driver). Dr. Gray came in dressed for church and without question relieved my pain . I will forever be grateful .

Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
