Wilmington & Wrightsville Beach’s Favorite Family Dentist

Everyone deserves to have a healthy mouth, but as you probably have noticed, not all dentist offices will work on children –typically for the sake of convenience. As a family dentist and parents ourselves, we understand how important your children’s health is to you and their future. That’s why we’re proud to serve patients of all ages.

Salling & Tate understands the importance of advocating for the health of our patients and providing our neighbors in our beloved Wilmington, NC community with the highest quality dental care possible. We work hard to ensure that each time a patient steps into our office, they get the best experience possible. Beyond our caring and wonderful staff, we try to make the entire process as painless as possible by adopting the latest dental technology. We’ve found that the newer the technology, the less discomfort you’ll generally experience, which is why we use the latest technologies in family dentistry.

What We Offer Patients

Teeth Cleaning

Regular teeth cleanings are one of the best ways to maintain a healthy mouth, and Salling & Tate makes them quick, painless, and even a little fun! We’re happy to serve patients of all ages, so bring the whole family!

Evidence keeps pouring in that a healthy mouth is a gateway to a healthy body. Bacteria that accumulate on your teeth cause gum disease and cavities; which will lead to tooth loss. Routine dental exams and cleanings are an important part of reducing the likely hood of these illnesses.

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign® can help you achieve the smile that you want without the fear of having clunky braces with painful wires and rubber bands. 3-D technology allows us to evaluate your teeth and create a plan for you that will have you seeing satisfactory results in no time. Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made (nearly invisible) aligners. The procedure can correct crowding, gaps, and shifting that sometimes occur years after braces have been removed.

Proven Results

In nationwide dental practices and in clinical research, Invisalign® has proven its effectiveness at straightening teeth. And because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign® is comfortable! Brushing, flossing, and enjoying your favorite foods aren’t a problem because it’s removable.
