The Linville, NC office
Dr. Troy Hoover established an office in Elizabethton TN in 2013 to fulfill a life-long dream of living in the mountains of western North Carolina. In 2020 he opened the Linville, NC office and called on Dr. Joan C. Schmitt, a periodontal specialist, to join him. Dr. Hoover met Dr. Schmitt during his years of volunteer service at a low-income non-profit clinic.
With the Linville office Dr. Hoover is returning to his roots of restorative and cosmetic dentistry while addressing the growing need for periodontal care. There are many forms of periodontal disease and per the CDC half of Americans over the age of 30 have periodontitis, the more advanced form of periodontal disease. Untreated gum disease can lead to serious dental problems such as tooth loss, inability to chew, shifting of teeth, pain and other manifestations. Periodontitis has also been linked to other systemic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, therefore we advocate for prevention and early intervention. Regular exams and cleanings are the best way to help avoid these complications.
