The original dental facility opened its doors in April 2007 on McDowell Street in Asheville. The program moved to the newly constructed MAHEC Biltmore Campus in August 2013. The Campus houses both the MAHEC Family Health Center and the MAHEC Dental Health Center, along with offices for the residency programs and administrative functions for both practices. The Biltmore Campus, which also houses the MAHEC Education Building and MAHEC OB/GYN Specialists, is located on almost 14 acres in the town of Biltmore Forest. The new facility allows us to offer more services to our patients in one attractive and convenient location and includes state-of-the-art technology for both patient care and resident training.
The Dental Health Center space offers a large waiting area as well as digital displays to help us communicate information, tips and timely reminders for patients while they wait. Our treatment rooms provide the opportunity for comprehensive care for patients including cosmetic fillings, crowns and veneers, reconstructive full mouth dentistry, precision partial dentures, custom dentures, non-surgical and surgical treatment for periodontal (gum) disease, oral surgery, and teeth whitening. There is also a new resident work room, a state-of-the-art training room and large conference room, all redesigned to provide for an improved experience for our patients, faculty, residents and staff.
