How Does Gum Disease start 🤔 🦠Bacteria in the mouth infect tissue surrounding the tooth, causing inflammation around the tooth, leading to periodontal disease. When this bacteria colony stays on the teeth long enough, they form a film called plaque, which eventually hardens to tartar, also called calculus.While gum disease can transform into a debilitating condition at whatever point left unchecked, it is reversible in its beginning phases and should never be disregarded. Gum disease presents as gingivitis in the early stages, which is characterized by swollen gums that might bleed upon chewing or while brushing teeth.Bleeding gums are not normal🫣 Call our office right away if you notice any of the signs above 👆 ...

We are excited to share our Business of the month for February Black Mountain Sports Massage & Fitness 👇👇Here is some info on Shane & his Black Mountain based business. Please check out his website to book your appointment. Shane Pleasant, is the Owner of Black Mountain Sports Massage & Fitness LLC. He is a NC native that fell in love with bodywork and movement while living in Honolulu, Hawaii. He has been a licensed massage therapist and certified personal trainer since 2013.His passion for helping others evolved from a personal journey to improve his own health and wellbeing as he transitioned away from a career desk job. He had a strong desire to become more fit, improve his surfing, and learn how to alleviate the daily aches and pains his body was starting to feel.His first "massage" was an Active Release Techniques (ART) treatment, and it changed his life. I knew this style of bodywork would be his future and how he would help improve others' lives beyond personal training. He was fortunate enough to study ART extensively for four consecutive years while attending the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, and was provided the opportunity to work with world-class elite athletes.Shane's background in movement is holistic in focus and has allowed me to develop a diverse skill set in both corrective strategies and functional fitness. To this day, he continues to improve upon his knowledge and understanding of movement and biomechanics, not only to provide the best bodywork and personal training experience for my clients but to also ensure he is performing at his best as a 42 year old athlete.His love for the ocean runs deep, but far from ocean spray here in western NC, you can find him romping in his family's mountain paradise with the love of his life Julia, their son River, baby on the way, and their dog Denali.Keep Moving!Shane's BIO:North Carolina Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist National Academy of Sports Medicine-Certified Personal Trainer National Academy of Sports Medicine-Corrective Exercise SpecialistFunctional Movement Systems-Level 1 & 2Active Release Techniques-Full body, Long Tract Nerve, MastersCHEK Golf Conditioning SpecialistFather, husband, farmer, hiker, hobby woodworker, fly fisherman, & surfer ...

Dr. Anders' Newsletter

Occasionally we send announcements, specials and helpful information through email.


I just wanted to say how much my wife and I enjoyed Caroline’s personality. She was such a joy to work with. She made our 3.5 hr drive well worth it. Don’t get me wrong, everyone I encountered in the practice was kind and had good energy, but she really radiated goodness. I am grateful to have met her in my journey. My only detractor is the fact that covid is still a thing and I couldn’t see everyone’s smiles. Thank you so much!

M. Miller

They are always so nice when I go in. They listen to what I have to say. They make me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. They are the only dentist I will go too!!

My 1st visit today was also somewhat urgent in that I had significant pain that was escalating. I couldn’t have been more fortunate to find your office. It was thorough, efficient, safe, clean and patient friendly. Dr. Armistead and “belle” were awesome. Hats off to Rebecca as well. Having worked in healthcare for decades in hospitals, clinics, and my own private psychotherapy practice allows me a little insight and all I can say is “perfect”. I now have a dental office here in Black Mountain. Thank you!

Fantastic experience as a new patient. They took good care of me, listened, and explained their procedures. I had a filling pop out in the middle of a pandemic and they were cautious, understanding, and pain free.

Excellent work.

Alex Rogowski

Love this practice! I’m always treated with care and courtesy; their processes are efficient and designed for comfort & reassurance. Even during this difficult time of taking extra care due to COVID, they made it easy & earned my trust and confidence in their approach. Great job, team – thank you so much!

Karen Vernon

Great visit and was treated very well. Dr. Anders and her staff made me feel welcome even though it was my first visit. I am glad I they worked me in on such a short notice. Thank you.


Dr. Anders is incredibly professional and supportive. This was the first time a dentist ever spoke with me about the relationship between my dental condition and overall health. This practice is committed to improving quality of life for patients.

Amanda Venturella

I was recommended to Dr. Anders by a retired dentist who had moved to the area. I have not been disappointed. Dr. Anders and her staff are caring, friendly, professional individuals who attend to the details of dental care.

Martha Campbell

I’ve been the happiest with Dr. Anders dental work than any other DDS I’ve seen in my 64 years. She has been gentle, caring and thorough and made both temporary and permanent crowns that fit well and look good.
