“I've been going here for around 4 years and I love the staff and service at Dentistry in Buckhead (Dr. Peter Pate DDS). They are kind, fun and always chatty. I always feel better after leaving there because of their general happiness. They are good at what they do and are very considerate of your comfort level.”

Katie B., Atlanta, GA

“After going to a couple of jaded dentists with sloppy hygienists, I appreciate Dr. Pate and his team so much more now. Dr. Pate and his hygienists take time with patients to be thorough and educate. They pay attention to detail and have excellent bedside manner. You can tell they genuinely care about their patients and each other, like family...it's more than a career, they behave like it's a calling.”

April C., Sandy Springs, GA

“What a different experience! Dr. Pate and his staff go out of their way to make your experience comfortable and pleasant. They are incredibly informative and make sure to include you in the total process.”

In order to create the most comfortable environment possible, Dr. Pate offers relaxing sedation dentistry techniques, such as nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and oral sedation. These techniques are very safe and effective, and we can help you determine which option fits your personal situation best.

    ClearCorrect Braces Discreetly Straighten Teeth

    Many adults dream of a more attractive smile, but they simply can’t make peace with the idea of wearing noticeable metal braces in order to correct gaps and misalignments. Thankfully, there’s now an image-friendly alternative: ClearCorrect. This modern orthodontic technique relies on clear aligners instead of the tried-and-true wires and brackets, which blend in well with your enamel and are even removable for added convenience. Dr. Pate can help you determine whether or not ClearCorrect is right for you during a consultation!

    Do you regularly snore so loud that it disrupts your family’s rest? Do you often feel exhausted throughout the morning, even though you seemingly got plenty of sleep the night before? These habits may seem annoyingly harmless, but they can actually be tell-tale signs of a much more serious condition: sleep apnea. At Dentistry in Buckhead, Dr. Pate offers oral appliance therapy to combat this health problem’s harmful effects and help patients finally wake up feeling ready for the day ahead.
