J.A. Mera, D.D.S. & Associates

We provide the most personalized dental care in Richmond, VA so that patients feel heard and their needs are met.

Professional Dentist Richmond & Midlothian, VA

Personalized Service in a Caring Environment 

At Chris Wolberg DDS and Associates, we believe that highly personalized care leads to better dental health. Being just a number can make people feel unrecognized, leave their needs unmet, and increase their fear of going to the dentist. This can lead to their dental problems worsening, and even pain, infection, and tooth loss. That’s why we do things differently.

We provide the most personalized dental care in Richmond and Midlothian from professionals who are not only experts in their field but who also value the importance of listening. We want you to feel heard and recognized so that you can achieve the health and smile that you have always deserved.

Our Values

Our values are part of every interaction with our patients. We promise to uphold our commitments to the following:

  • Excellent Care: Providing professional, skilled care is our number one focus in serving our patients. You can rest assured that you are receiving the absolute best dental care in the greater Richmond area.
  • Personalized Attention: At our dental practice, your needs and experience are at the center of everything that we do. We won’t just remember your name; we’ll remember you.
  • A Focus on Communication: We listen first, then guide you as we make decisions about your dental health together. We believe these open lines of communication are essential for your best dental treatment plan.

Everyone that works here is extremely nice and helpful. Every time I go & I am so glad that I found this Dentist office. I can honestly say that I don’t mind going to the dentist which I never thought. They go beyond and above to explain everything. If you have any questions they will take the time to answer them. I would recommend that you make an appointment if you are looking for a Dentist Richmond VA.

Excellent and professional team. Needed support on a Sunday and called the office...Dr Wolberg answered the phone, told me to come in and took care of my issue in less than 15 minutes. I challenge anyone to call their dentist office on a Sunday and have this happen. He cares about his work and his patients. Highly recommend.

The Dental Hygienist is gentle and is the same one which I like. Dr. Tarasidis is thorough and spot on. She also let's you know exactly how your teeth are and what down-the-road issues to plan for. Excellent practice.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Tarasidis for about 30 years. I think that speaks volumes about how I feel about the practice. Vera is wonderful and has given me a much more attractive smile as well as taking good care of my teeth. Everyone on staff, from the front desk to the hygienist and X-ray tech, are always friendly and competent. I’m very satisfied with my dental care!!

I went into Dr.Mera's office unannounced the other day due to pain in a tooth that came abruptly.They took me right in, made me comfortable and attended to the tooth in question. It wasn't even 5 minutes and it felt better already. Dr.Mera has an awesome team.I don't know of any office that would give you the satisfaction, as I received.

Our Dental Services

Dental Exams and Cleaning

During our complete dental exam, our dentist and hygienist will perform the following:

  1. Diagnostic x-rays to help detect tooth decay, root position, bone loss, and cysts.
  2. Screening for oral cancer by examining your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, and gums.
  3. Check for gum disease, tooth pain, and tooth decay.
  4. Evaluation of existing fillings, crowns, and other dental restorations.
  5. Dental cleaning to remove tartar buildup and plague, followed by teeth polishing to remove any stains or residual plaque.

Dental Exams and Cleaning

Extractions

If you need a tooth extraction, we’ll numb the area surrounding the tooth with a long-lasting dental anesthetic, so you have little to no pain. Then, we gently elevate the tooth out of its socket. Before an extraction, our team will discuss options for tooth replacement with you.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are long-term tooth replacement options. Both involve shaving down the outside of the tooth to fit a cap over it. We’ll recommend a crown to preserve or save a tooth or change its shape or color. A bridge fills the space after tooth extraction. We shave and crown the two teeth on either side of the space, placing a ‘pontic’ or artificial tooth in between.

Root Canal

If you have a severe infection in the root of one of your teeth, we’ll recommend a root canal, which heals the area while saving your tooth. Treatment will be pain-free and complete in one or two visits.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dentistry that improves the appearance of your smile through the color, position, and alignment of your teeth is cosmetic. We’re a top-rated dentist in Midlothian, VA, for procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, and removable braces. We’ll talk to you about the option that works best for you.

Dentures

Dentures (partial or full) are an option to replace missing teeth and restore your smile, improving your health and your appearance. We customize all removable appliances like dentures or partials to fit your mouth comfortably and deliver an alignment that makes it easy to eat and smile.

Implant Restoration

When you have a single missing tooth, we may recommend an implant as a solution. We place a metal post as a root replacement, allow it to heal for 4-8 months, then place a crown over the root replacement. We design the crown to match the color and shape of your teeth.

Emergency Dentistry

Our team has the knowledge and experience to treat dental emergencies that occur due to facial trauma, tooth pain, swelling, infection, or sudden sensitivity to hot or cold. If you have a dental emergency, call our Emergency Dentist at 804-482-0757

Family Dentistry

We believe in delivering quality, reliable dental care you can trust at every age. We understand how children’s teeth change as they grow into teens and adults. Our approach is comprehensive, and our treatment is gentle – to help everyone in your family have a positive experience and build good oral hygiene habits.

New patients can make an appointment by email or phone or:

We accept all forms of PPO dental insurance. We will file any claim and deal with insurance so that you don’t have to! Additionally, we are in-network with several dental insurances, including Anthem, MetLife, Guardian, United Concordia, Delta, and Cigna. Financing is available through Care Credit. We do not currently accept any HMO plans.
