Deborah J. Aten, DDS
Anthony M. Garofalo, DDS
Aten & Garofalo Dentistry, Ballantyne’s Premier Family Practice, was established by Dr. Deborah Aten and Dr. Anthony Garofalo due to their shared passion for dentistry and commitment to providing healthy, beautiful smiles for their patients. The two highly skilled and dedicated dentists created an office that offers unmatched patient-centered care in a family atmosphere. The doctors and their highly trained team provide the most advanced technological and cosmetic dentistry techniques while offering personalized and comprehensive care.
Both doctors devote extensive hours to advanced training, continuing education, and current technology. They continually invest in the practice to advance the quality of the care. Practice services include implants, same-day crowns, bridges, veneers, tooth-colored fillings, and tooth whitening. Recently, the doctors completed the Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency program through UNC Chapel Hill. They strive to educate their patients on the importance of optimal dental health as it relates to overall body health.
As one of the first dentists to establish a practice in the Ballantyne area (2001), Dr. Aten is respected and admired by patients and peers, who have voted her a Top Dentist in Charlotte magazine for 12 consecutive years. Dr. Garofalo’s expertise, built through a combination of his experience in private practice and as a prior Associate Clinical Professor at New York University, has also consistently earned him recognition as a Charlotte magazine Top Dentist.
“The professionals working here are truly impressive,” patient Sandy H. says. “Of course they’re highly skilled, but they’re also patient-centered in every way. The staff spends whatever time is necessary to deliver excellent care. I wholeheartedly recommend this dental practice to everyone looking for outstanding care!”
With patient comfort and convenience being a top priority, the doctors and their exceptional team make communicating easy with emails, texts, and secure patient links. The Aten & Garofalo team cares deeply about providing the best patient experience—and it shows.
