Knowing the impact COVID-19 has on our world today, Lane & Associates Family Dentistry(LAA) has decided to join in the research to improve our tomorrow. As of Fall 2021, LAA will be partnering with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), in the trial of their latest reusable elastomeric half-mask respirators (EHMRs).
Lane & Associates Family Dentistry is proud and excited to incorporate the use of EHMRs across all 40 of its dental offices over the next several months. These EHMRs are unique because they are designed with replaceable air-filtering cartridges to prevent the spread of airborne illnesses from practitioner to the patient and vice versa.
Respirators are the standard protection device used in many industries. But their use in healthcare is unique in that a constant supply is always needed, especially during times of public health crisis. The durability and reusability of EHMRs make them desirable during product shortages for public health emergencies and challenges.
What will these respirators mean for me?
These EHMRs will only be worn by clinical staff members in our offices and will not affect your dental appointments at LAA. However, we will continue to ask that all patients who enter our facilities wear their face coverings as has been our COVID policy since May 2020.
How long will LAA be wearing the respirators?
Our clinical team members who elected to test the masks will be wearing these for the next few months. Although these masks may look cumbersome, we believe they could have life-saving effects during any subsequent pandemics, especially for those in the healthcare industry.
Our team at LAA is excited to join NIOSH in this research for a healthier tomorrow! Please reach out at [email protected] if you have further questions regarding this new partnership.

We are proud to say that we employ over 450 amazing dental professionals in North Carolina including over 60 doctors.
It is amazing to see how far we’ve come in the last 40 years and the incredible relationships we’ve been able to develop with our patients. Some of our patients have been with us since day one & we thank you for the loyalty you’ve shown us. We are also incredibly thankful to be a part of so many communities throughout North Carolina & consistently give back through volunteer work, sponsorships, & so much more.
Again, thank you to all of our friends and family in the dental community and beyond. We are incredibly thankful to be apart of your lives.

Check out our Fayetteville Office updates!
We love the new Fayetteville office updates to our Lane Fayetteville location. Our goals were to improve the aesthetics at the office and give our Fayetteville kid patients some fun areas to enjoy while they wait for their appointments. We also installed new lobby furniture and updated the Lobby check-in area. Check out the photos below!
Our updates have already been a big hit with our Fayetteville area patients and we hope to keep improving. Some other updates have been our dental chairs, our X-ray machine, and our front lobby check-in counter!
Our office now has a brand new Kids Station
From coloring books to a stuffed animal to hold during the appointment to a baby tooth album to protect and store baby teeth, our new Kids area and First Visit program are an absolute hit.
