Pearl to Bring Modern, High-End Dentistry to Additional Location

Pearl to Bring Modern, High-End Dentistry to Additional Location

Will Offer 20 Free Cleanings to New Patients

CHARLOTTE, N.C., (Oct. 24, 2016) – Pearl. Dentistry Reimagined (Pearl.) will open its second location, situated on the corner of S. Tryon and 4th streets, on Nov. 1. With two primetime Uptown Charlotte cosmetic and general dental offices, Pearl will be able to offer the ultimate in accessibility and convenience to the busy working professionals in Uptown. As part of Pearl.’s grand opening celebration, it is offering free cleanings for the first 20 new clients who contact the office Nov. 1 – Nov. 11.

“In two short years, we have become the highest rated dental office in Uptown Charlotte on Google and Yelp, and we think that’s because Pearl. has transformed the trip to the dentist from dreadful to fun, relaxing and sexy (yes, sexy!),” states owner and lead dentist Dr. Jenny Gandhi. “And part of the experience is our ability to meet clients’ oral health efficiently—in other words, no waiting—since we know their time is valuable.”

Like the existing location, the 5,000-square-feet S. Tryon Street office is designed to feel like a high-end swanky lounge to put clients at ease and let them unplug. It is outfitted with private treatment suites with a plethora of spa-like amenities, such as dual overhead and wall-mounted LED televisions featuring Netflix, as well as Beats by Dr. Dre noise-cancelling headphones and comfortable leather chairs.

Pearl.’s luxury experience comes at a reasonable price. All clients enjoy free in-office whitening for life–-with a semi-annual cleaning, exam and x-rays--which is a $300 value. And, Pearl. offers in-network pricing with PPO insurance, meaning clients get all the additional luxuries without paying more than they would at a regular dentist. Individuals without insurance have access to the best savings plan in the city, with a 20 percent discount off all fees. No membership fee or plan is required.

The Pearl. team is accepting new patients at the 200 S. Tryon St., suite 110 location. To sign up for one of the 20 complimentary cleanings, new clients may schedule online at or call 704-414-5510. Once those spots are filled, Pearl. will offer 25 percent off (for those who have co-pays) for the remainder of November.
Office hours are as follows: Tuesday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. / Thursday 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. / Wednesday 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. / Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

About Pearl.
Pearl. is not your typical dental office. The ambience is relaxed and friendly. The setting is designer chic. The technology is cutting-edge. At Pearl., clients get the five-star experience at an affordable, in-network price. Going to the dentist isn’t fun, but we get pretty close. This is DENTISTRY REIMAGINED.
