In the mid-50s, the first dental practice opened at 15 Professional Court. Through the years, the practitioners and owners may have changed; however, the dedication of those who serve has remained steadfast.
The practice is owned and operated by Dr. Kyle Carney. He is a native Roman and graduated from Model High School and Shorter University. Carney received his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Medical College of Georgia. After joining the practice in 2006, he purchased the business from the previous owner in 2017.
In 2020, Dr. Stephan Drescher joined the practice. He is a native of Atlanta and is a graduate of Georgia Tech. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Good dental health is vital to a person’s overall health. Doctors Carney and Drescher recognize how technology leads to better dentistry and, as a result, improves one’s quality of life. “There have been tremendous advances in the field in the last three to four years that impact the quality of services and results.” So, in addition to traditional dentistry, they are committed to bringing their patients state-of-the- art procedures and services.
At Carney Family Dental, they employ three-dimensional panoramic x-ray. These advanced x-rays enable the development of precise treatment protocols. The detailed images also help the patient understand the diagnoses and treatments.
Another technological advancement utilized is digital intraoral scanners that have replaced traditional impressions used for procedures like crowns and bridges. The measurements and images are remarkably fast and accurate resulting in more comfort for the patient and a more precise fit.
One of the most impactful changes in dentistry has been the advancement of dental implants. Missing or damaged teeth affect a person’s appearance and ability to eat and lead to bone loss. At Carney Family Dental, dental implant techniques are available for single or multiple tooth replacements. They are also used to stabilize bridges, crowns, and even dentures.
For those who feel fear and anxiety, at Carney Dental, they can employ sedation dentistry options to comfort the patient. The options include Nitrous Oxide, a mild form of sedation that offers an anxiety reduction and has a quick recovery time. For patients requiring moderate or conscious sedation, IV Sedation is available. Medication is administered intravenously for the fastest onset and is a very safe procedure with vital signs continuously monitored.
For patients looking for teeth straightening options, SureSmile® aligners are a wonderful solution. These clear aligners offer improved, healthier smiles with treatment times ranging from under one year to three years. Made in America, SureSmile® provides a confidence boost many patients are looking for.
In early 2022, they will open a Dental Spa Room for innovative skin treatments. One of the latest skin tightening treatments they will offer is TempSure ENVI. With high- frequency ultrasound technology, existing collagen is broken down, and the generation of new collagen is created. The new collagen features tight, dense, and neatly organized, resulting in tighter, younger-looking skin. In addition, the treatment is described as pain-free by 99% of patients and results in little to no downtime. In addition, they will be offering Botox treatments.
Key to Success
The practice features three general dental rooms, two surgical suites, and four hygiene rooms. Even with all of the investment in both the facility and technology, the company’s number one asset is the 15 employees. The staff currently serves approximately 3500 patients aged from under 4-years old to over 100. Since services may continue throughout a person’s life, a relationship is built and friendships formed. This dedication by the staff ensures a warm, friendly environment where patients can feel comfortable and confident in the care they receive.
