New Look, Same Great Family
Dr. Brown and his team of dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants have been providing quality dental services in Monroe for over 37 years. Adam Brown, DDS (Formerly Carolina’s Dental Choice), now owned and operated by Doctor Adam Brown, will to continue with excellent services and innovative practice. Our patients have found that professional dental procedures, no matter how intricate, can be stress-free thanks to our team of professionals.
Dr. Adam Brown grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, and continues to make the Carolinas his home, currently living in Charlotte.
After getting a bachelor’s degree in construction management from East Carolina University, Dr. Brown established a career in residential home building and real estate industries. But after a 13-year career, Dr. Brown felt the call to dentistry. It wasn’t a far stretch for him to go from managing a successful career in the building industry to becoming a dentist, since his father—Dr. Don Brown who founded Carolina’s Dental Choice (now Adam Brown, DDS)—has been a celebrated dentist for many years.
Dr. Brown made his decision and headed to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. And once his schooling was complete, and he obtained his doctoral degree, he joined the family practice.
In November of 2020, Dr. Adam Brown purchased Carolina’s Dental Choice from Dr. Don Brown. After taking over the practice, Dr. Brown has transformed Carolina’s Dental Choice into Adam Brown, DDS.
Dr. Brown is a member of the American Dental Association and the North Carolina Dental Society. He lives in Charlotte with his wife, two kids, and two labs. In his free time, you can find him spending time with friends and family, especially if it’s on the lake or at the golf course.
At Adam Brown, DDS we have expert technology (designed not to inflict pain, but rather to perfect your smile), great customer care, and an interesting, fun staff.
One great aspect of our office is that it’s unique. To begin with, notice the structure of our building. Doesn’t look like a dental practice, does it? That’s because our office is housed in a…well, a house. We even have a porch! Our physical structure matches the overall goal of our practice: we want you to feel as though you are family. Inside, our friendly office is completely new. Freshly painted walls and trim. Beautiful wood floors. Soft lighting and light music to set the mood. Doesn’t sound like your typical dental practice, does it? That’s because we aren’t.
What Sets Us Apart
How much we care! Not only does our family atmosphere immediately put you at ease, our variety of services offered, and the technology used, provide the highest quality of dental work you will find. When it comes to practices such as teeth whitening, preventative care, and restorative and cosmetic dentistry, we have the latest, newest technology to complete all services quickly, easily, and professionally. Here are just a few of the services we offer:
Another quality that makes us different is our ability to conduct high-level restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry is an intricate procedure, often left for those few specialty dentists with steady hands and a vast knowledge of the practice. Luckily for us, Dr. Brown is one of these specialists.
What is restorative dentistry, exactly? It is the concept of reproducing or repairing teeth and adjoining bones and tissue through the use of metal and ceramic materials in order to make them whole again. This is a process that can be completed by filling, onlay, crowns, or implants. Dr. Brown and his team are one of the best practices that offer full mouth veneers and crowns. Custom veneers can be a tricky process to grasp. But, between 1-2 visits, you can have the smile you deserve and gain back the confidence that was once lost.
Dr. Brown’s expertise in performing difficult, intricate dental procedures, and his wonderful rapport with patients, provides a perfectly rounded practice. And, in order to establish Adam Brown, DDS as the best practice in Monroe, Dr. Brown has hired a staff that shares in his desire for perfection on all fronts of customer care. From our office manager and patient service operator to our fellow dentists and assistants, all are trained and excited to offer you excellent dental service.
A Few Tips for Great Oral Health
Before you come to visit us for your regular cleaning, or to have other dental procedures done, here are a few tips to help maintain your oral health:
- Get the Right Toothpaste
A lot of people like to rush right to the whitening toothpastes. It makes sense, who doesn’t want white teeth? But when you are juicing the acid that does come into contact with your teeth (and no matter what you do, there will be a least a tiny bit that does) makes them softer, more sensitive. And when you combine the harsh chemicals in whitening toothpaste, it can cause a lot of discomfort. It’s better to use toothpaste that is made for sensitive teeth. This will clean the teeth well without hurting them. And, honestly, brushing twice a day will do well at keeping your teeth white. If you feel you need something more there are plenty of products out there that do not hurt the teeth, even sensitive strips and mouthwashes that can advance your whitening.
- Avoid Over-Brushing
Never thought you could brush too much, did you? Well, you can. Too much brushing can actually help the acid erode the enamel off your teeth. As previously said, juicing can leave your teeth extra sensitive. To go and brush excessively after that can cause some problems. It is best to stick to the twice a day standard. And when you do brush, use a soft or medium bristle. Brush lightly, and use a mechanical toothbrush if possible. These are made to get to those hard-to-reach places and they put the perfect amount of pressure on your teeth and gums. And nowadays, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get one. There are plenty of reasonably priced electric toothbrushes out there. You just have to do a bit of research.
- Use Mouthwash Regularly
Just like flossing and brushing, the twice a day rule is all you need with mouthwash. If you feel the need to rinse more than that use water. But once in the morning, then again at night, can do wonders to clean the mouth. Mouthwash also helps keep your teeth white and your breath fresh.
- Drink Through Straws Whenever Possible
When drinking your favorite blended healthy concoction, it is possible to keep most of the liquid from having too much contact with your teeth. And, this is true, especially with thicker drinks. By using a straw, you can keep even more liquid from hitting your teeth. That’s why it’s a good idea to have many different types of straws around. A wide straw for thick juices, and narrow or regular-sized for normal densities, and a bendy straw just because they’re fun. Do stay away from those trendy metal straws though, as they can chip your teeth. Basically, any way of transferring your juice directly from the cup to your throat without touching anything (besides the straw), the better. Just be careful, using a straw makes drinking a lot of liquid much easier. You don’t want to overdo it on the juicing!
- Visit Your Dentist Twice a Year
This is one of the most important things to do. One visit to the dentist every six months is the perfect way to gauge how well your teeth are handling the juicing. A dentist can tell you if your teeth are becoming too sensitive or stained and advise you on what to do. It’s also good because you get a professional cleaning where someone is meticulously searching your mouth for cavities, bits of food, or anything else.
