LAA Supports Wake Tech

Dental Assisting Program!

Since 2017, Lane & Associates Family Dentistry has partnered with Wake Tech Community Colleges’ Dental Assisting program. Last week, Lane DDS was recognized at the Wake Tech Dental Assisting Open House for the renaming of Wake Tech’s new dental facility.

Welcome to the “Lane & Associates Family Dentistry Dental Clinic Facility,” which is located on the Perry Health Sciences Campus.

The ceremony and unveiling was an experience that will not be forgotten and included an array of speakers and exemplary figures in the dental community that provided words of wisdom and knowledgeable remarks.

The open house was concluded with a tour of the new state-of-the-art facility which has eight treatment rooms, a designated sterilization area, a panoramic room, a reception room area, faculty offices, and a student locker room!

Lane & Associates Family Dentistry and NCOSO couldn’t be more proud of our home team, the Carolina Hurricanes, as they power into Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. As the Official Team Dentist, Orthodontist + Oral Surgeon of the Canes we are excited to show our support from all 50+ offices across the state.

All of our offices were provided buttons to wear showing team spirit and encouraged to dress in Cane’s fanwear, colors, or sports attire. Our Lane Family did NOT disappoint. Our amazing company went above and beyond sporting hats, shirts, socks, posters, and even cookies, all in a variety of colors from red, black, silver, and white!!  We have seen it all and we are loving it.

Message to teachers on Chalk BoardLane and Associates Family Dentistry takes pride in giving back to the community at every chance we get. We have been fortunate enough to support local businesses and organizations, sponsor customer appreciation events, and work closely with the Kay Yow Foundation. Our dedication to our community, however, does not stop there.

Teachers give it their all for their students every day. This is why it is so important to make sure the teachers in our community feel and understand exactly how appreciative everyone is for ALL that they do. Here at Lane & Associates, we love to celebrate our teachers as much as we can, both in and out of our office!

This week, Lane and Associates had the opportunity to sponsor a teacher appreciation event at North Ridge Elementary School. We provided a luncheon to show our support and gratitude for them – complete with catered Armadillo Grill and dessert! Teachers received goodie bags filled with various treats as they took a well-deserved break, as well as swag bags of Lane and Associates gear.

Cinco de Mayo Head Assistant Fun!

At Lane & Associates Family Dentistry we know how important meetings are for professional development and growth, but we also know they don’t have to be boring! Our Head Assistants celebrated their quarterly meeting in style. The entire meeting was Cinco de Mayo themed from decor to games to food. Table runners in a variety of colors hosted paper flowers, vases filled with colored water and fresh flower arrangements, and mini sombreros. The assistants were filled with surprise and even took pieces of the table arrangements with them!

Awards and accolades were distributed throughout the meeting. We learned and ate lunch catered by Chinelos. The delicious spread included chicken, beef, beans, rice, guacamole, salad, salsa, and a cheese fountain!

To conclude the meeting each Head Assistant received a piñata stuffed with candy and a special prize. The prizes included: 2 sets of 6 tickets to a Mudcats baseball game, a total of $360 cash, and $150 worth of gift cards.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Cinco de Mayo with our Head Assistants and cannot wait for our next themed meeting.

Here are some fun captures of Wednesday’s meeting!

March is Sleep Apnea Awareness Month

Lane & Associates Dental Sleep Medicine Oral ApplianceNot only is March National Sleep Awareness Month, but it is also Sleep Apnea Awareness Month which means it’s time to fix the snore that is probably keeping your partner or your neighbors awake. One of the biggest complaints we hear in our offices is, “What can you do about my husband/wife/partner’s snoring?” Now, this doesn’t mean that all loud snoring is a sign of sleep apnea but it doesn’t hurt to take a look.Another question you’re problem thinking is, “How can my dentist fix my snore?” There are so ways to care for sleep apnea with dental treatment. Dental Sleep Medicine oral appliances are the perfect alternative to a traditional CPAP machine.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Let’s start with what sleep apnea is. Sleep apnea is technically the cessation or stopping of breathing, similar to holding your breath – but the difference is you can not control it. Sleep apnea can cause snoring, mood disorders, weight gain, and even high blood pressure! At Lane & Associates, we treat Sleep Apnea! Let’s get your life back!

What kinds of C-PAP Alternative treatment options do we offer?

  • Dorsal – The Dorsal is a relatively new appliance on the market. It is unique in that the upper and lower component of the appliance is not connected as with other oral appliances, but are still adjustable. is allows for the full opening of the mouth, which improves comfort and is helpful in certain cases.
  • Herbst – EMA (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) – The EMAs primary function is to bring the jaw forward and keep the airway open. One of the major advantages of the EMA is its smaller size as well as its flexibility. Various lengths of flexible bands are used to adjust the position of the lower jaw. The EMA is one of the most comfortable oral appliances on the market.

Do you have any symptoms of Sleep Apnea?

Complete the checklist below.
