Instead of finding two separate dental practices for the children and adults in your family, you can take everyone to the same trusted team. Children as young as a year old can benefit from visits twice a year.

Our compassionate team will make sure that they're at ease, like Dr. Ashley Starr, who has experience in a pediatric office. And, because we know that dental anxiety has no age limit, we practice the same level of kindness and care with all our patients. Visit our welcoming office to see why Belmont and Charlotte patients happily trust us to care for their loved ones.

We Accommodate Busy Schedules


With everything on your plate, it can be hard to find time to visit the dentist. We make it easier to fit us into your busy schedule with Saturday hours from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. We also offer late hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on  Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Contact us to find a time that works best for you.

25% of American Adults Have a Cavity Right Now

25% of people from 20-64 have a cavity right now
Cavities are incredibly common among patients from 20 to 64, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A quarter of them have tooth decay — even if they don't know it. That's why visiting our dentists is so crucial. Not only can we detect bacteria buildup and cavities, but we can treat them with dental fillings and root canal therapy, as well as help you practice better care in the future.

I Brush and Floss Every Day. Do I Really Need to See the Dentist?

If you practice good daily dental care, you're creating a commendable foundation for your oral health. But only dentists can clean away the stubborn plaque and tartar that deposits on our teeth and along our gumlines. An experienced dentist, like those on our team, will use specialized tools to completely clean each tooth.

It takes an hour of your time or less to prevent dental problems — so visit us for your next appointment.

What Does a Dental Cleaning Include? See for Yourself at Our Charleston-Area Office

When you visit our Belmont dentists for a routine appointment, you'll get more than just a cleaning. In every routine visit, we include:

Dental Exams

We take your health seriously. Each cleaning comes with an exam, which allows us to check for cavities, gum disease, and tooth trauma. If we notice any concerns, we can go over them with you and plan the right course of treatment.

Teeth Cleaning

The typical dental cleaning allows us to remove plaque and tartar along your teeth and gums. Your dentist will check to make sure your teeth look excellent before you leave, even doing some polishing for a finishing touch.

Teeth Polishing

Your dentist may also include teeth polishing in your treatment. Polishing is best for preventing staining from buildup on your teeth, so that your smile is both beautiful and healthy when you leave our office.

Home Care Tips

Having trouble flossing around a certain tooth? Need help with a stubborn child's brushing habits? Our dentists are happy to give you at-home dental care tips, like brushing techniques, so that you can best protect your teeth.

For the healthiest smile, patients should combine in-office teeth cleaning with at-home care. You and your family can trust our dentists to protect your oral health — so get started by contacting our Belmont, NC, dental office or by calling

(704) 825-5111

Everyone there is super friendly and communicative! You always know what's going on and what the plan is.

I especially love my doctor, Dr. Ashley Starr.

I feel super cared for and in control when I do procedures and check-ups with her and the dental assistants.

I was seen today as a new patient with Sarah and Dr. Kumar and omg they were so amazing! Sarah is one of the best, if not the best hygienists I've ever had!!! My teeth have never felt cleaner and she was so gentle and thorough! Dr. Kumar came and did an exam and seemed very sweet! I had a great experience and when you come, make sure you ask for Sarah! You won't regret it

Does Insurance Cover Cleaning?

Yes, dental insurance typically covers the full cost of a regular cleaning and exam twice a year for children and adults. South Point Family Dentistry accepts a variety of dental insurance, and you're welcome to ask if we take yours before visiting.

Take advantage of your policy and visit our Belmont team for your next dental cleaning. Even if you don't have insurance, regular teeth cleaning is cheaper than advanced treatment later down the line. Plus, we accept CareCredit® and Sunbit financing, so that your family never has to sacrifice having healthy teeth and gums.
