Jones Thomas L DDS
I don't typically review businesses, but I had looked up Dr. Jones prior to my appointment and was nervous given a bad review. Getting a root canal is nerve racking enough! Thanks for lying!! I was so amazed by the great experience I was terrified of, that I had to call the nasty review out! Dr. Jones was really patient and calm. He explained everything and was very encouraging when I told him my fears. He did talk a lot, but it made me feel more comfortable with him. I think I know his grandson personally now!!! His wife was there and he joked around with her a lot. I thought they were funny. She seems to be his opposite, so it made for comic relief.HIs office is cute! Kind of like a doll house. It smells like bleach, which I didn't mind because I know it can only mean the office is clean. The staff was very friendly. They also had the best prices. I appreciate a doctor not trying rob me blind! I have already recommended him to friends and told them to disregard the hater online. LOL

Whitaker Dental Associates
I am a new Patient/Customer of DDS Natalie Whitaker. I am extreme pleased and impressed with the staff and services provided. I didn't even look for a waiting room chair. The new digital photograph used is very impressive. Sarah the dental Hygienist was fantastic at cleaning my teeth and educating me concerning my teeth. WOW so much better experience than 2 prior dentist in the area. I am finished shopping for Dentists in the Morganton Area. I haven't been seen by Steven Sudderth, the other DDS partner yet, but have seen and heard good information about him too. Mallory Green

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
