I grew up in Western New York, but have been calling Western North Carolina home since 1998. My husband, Duane, and I enjoy spending time with our two children, and our family and friends. My interests include sewing, making jewelry, gardening and volunteering at my children’s school. Before I began my career in the dental field, I worked in fiber arts. I really enjoy details and multitasking, so I gravitated toward a second career in dentistry. It has been very rewarding to be a part of this dental team and to help our patients achieve healthy smiles.

PATIENT APPRECIATION DAY WITH THE TOURISTS

Our office celebrates Patient Appreciation Day every year. Our business cards are given to patients for admission to a game, usually in mid-August. We enjoy seeing all of you at this fun night sponsored by Reynolds Mountain.

It is one small way we can express our gratitude each year to let you know how much we appreciate you! We provide 2 front row box seat tickets to every Asheville Tourists game. You are invited to call during the week of the game you would like to attend and request the tickets. We are happy to share this fun night in the Asheville community.

Come join us at the Ballgame!

 

VOLUNTEER WITH ABCCM

Dr. Adams has always believed that all of us need to give back to our community by helping the less fortunate who are truly deserving. What better way could we help than to perform complimentary dentistry for the needy. For that reason Dr. Adams volunteers to do gratis dental care through the Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry Medical / Dental Clinic throughout the year.

Kind words from our current patients

Dear Steven,

We have had the distinct pleasure of treating your patient of many years Mrs. Marion Stoneman! She lives in Gainesville now. I am writing to give you highest commendations about the extraordinary quality of your dental treatment of your patients as evidenced by the truly beautiful and excellent care in her mouth!

Much future success to you.

Ronald Gadbois, DDS, P.C., Northeast Georgia General

First, I want to say that I was terrified about Dr. Adams recommendation that I get mini implants because I thought the material/metal from the implants would affect my health. I was totally wrong about what I thought. The procedure for getting the implants was not bad at all. I think what helped me through it was the care of the team of dental professionals... The mini implants secure my bottom denture so well and I can’t feel they are in my mouth. I don’t have to worry about my bottom denture coming loose or out because I can eat anything I want and not worry about being embarrassed...

I am very, very happy with the mini implants and highly recommend them, especially if your dentist tells you that he/she recommends them for you. I get so many compliments on my beautiful smile!!!

Deborah Smith

When I walked into your office for my first visit, I didn't realize that the quality of my life was going to improve to the extent it has... It's been about six months since all the work was completed and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. I've got my smile back and have no difficulty chewing anything. I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for making the experience a positive one.

E. McElhinney

Due to terrible experiences at previous dentists, I had neglected to visit a dentist for more years than I care to admit. Dr. Adams didn't give me a hard time about it. We devised an action plan to get me back into shape and Dr. Adams and his staff took good care of me. Dr. Adams helped me conquer my fear of the dentist, and I didn't think that could ever happen. I have referred four people to Dr. Adams and they are now loyal customers of his. My apologies, however, to their previous dentists.

T. Burns

Dr. Adams: An excellent, caring and professional doing state of the art dentistry.

Dental Assistants: Dedicated to making your procedure efficient and as painless as possible.

Office Staff: Making sure all business matters, appointments, etc, are handled competently.

Location: Superb facilities, friendly people, and did I mention the view!

Results: First class positive outcome... to brag about!

Lou Stauffer

To: Dr. Steven Adams & all the staff,

It is with the greatest respect and awe for what you do that I offer my heartfelt thanks for the help you gave me at a time when I was very ill and in excruciating pain and I needed you most. I have found, within the last 10 years, that a dentist who will help a new patient, at a moment's notice, is a most elusive animal! I was astounded as well as deeply relieved to find that without hesitation, you and your staff welcomed me into your most capable care. With that act of kindness you have renewed my faith in the oral/dental field of medicine and it's ability to care for the patient without first thinking of fiscal/monetary gain or compensation.

Again, please accept my deepest thanks and gratitude to you all!

B. Merrill (a most satisfied patient)

My friends,

The work you did for an elderly person, me, over these past days was superb. I want you to know that your care and skills were without peer. Thank you, Doctor Steve, and each of the fine staff who attended me over the past few days. All of you have treated me with dignity, care and concern over many years. You deserve all accolades, more than I can express.

So, thank you again for making me whole.
