We cannot believe that Whalen Dentistry opened its doors 9 years ago this month! It has been such an honor to serve and work with our Lake Norman community. When Dr. Whalen completed his education at West Virginia University School of Dentistry, it was his dream to open his own practice. After visiting friends that live in the Cornelius area, Dr. Whalen and Brooke knew this was the place they wanted to settle and work.
In 2008, plans were put in place to build the practice. They found our current location, and Dr. Whalen hired his first assistant, Kim Sendrey, who is still with Whalen Dentistry today. Together, they worked to establish their patient base—all of which they did from scratch.
There was so much work that went into designing and building out the office. Dr. Whalen drove all the design decisions from the paneled front desk, the hidden x-ray equipment, the special hallway lighting, and everything in between. He selected only the most advanced, cutting-edge equipment, and along with Brooke, his wife, picked out and installed all the furniture and accessories. Dr. Whalen wanted to bring something different to both the office and the type of care his dental office would provide. This is where our motto “Experience the Difference” was born.
As the business has grown, so has our staff, patients, and even locations. We are proud to say that Cornelius Dentistry with Dr. Stenvall is open and welcoming patients into a beautifully renovated space as well.
Over the years, we have continued to invest in dental technology, including our most recent addition of the CEREC® machine, which allows us to create same-day crowns. We take pride in our website and our presence on social media to engage our patients and the community in what our practice has to offer. There has been much hard work and dedication to bring Lake Norman the highest level of comprehensive dental care and we are very proud you have welcomed us into your community.
Although the years have brought some changes, our objective to give the highest quality of service has not. We look forward to continuing to live and work as a part of the Cornelius community for many years to come.
