Located in Cleveland County, NC Athena Dental Solutions was established in 2006 by Lori Hendrick as a crown and bridge laboratory. (We are NOT a Dental Office). Services were expanded to include clear aligners, occlusal guards, and custom abutments and screw retained implants. Our office address is 100 Bess Goforth Drive, Kings Mountain, NC and our clinical address is 511 North Morgan Street, Shelby NC. 

In 2008, Lori expanded to include CE courses for dental providers. Courses offered include OSHA/HIPAA compliance, NC Radiography for Dental Assistants (NCSBDE approved) including Nomad/handheld radiography, local anesthetic courses, coronal polishing, substance use and mental awareness, MATE, and other courses which help you meet your renewal requirements. 

On Nov. 1, 2021, Lori became certified to administer local anesthetic agents to dental patients for pain control. Immediately implementing this into our dental practice has been a game changer to help provide timely care to patients. Thus it was only natural to add local anesthetic courses to our list of CE courses. 


Athena Dental Solutions, LLC is an Academy of General Dentistry (AGD/Pace) and American Dental Association (ADA/CERP) approved provider and is recognized by the NCSBDE as a CE provider.
