If you have had a cavity filled before, you're not alone. Tooth decay affects more than 90% of adults over the age of 40 - a stunning statistic that, in many cases, is entirely preventable. At Merchants Walk Dental, we use composite resin fillings to keep our patient's teeth healthy and functional. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are more discreet, match the color of your teeth, and are free of mercury.
While fillings can have a few uses, our doctors typically use fillings to âfillâ a part of your tooth that is decaying. This hole of decay is called a cavity. Sometimes, fillings are also used to fix broken, cracked, or worn-down teeth from grinding and nail-biting. Fillings are a great way to restore decaying teeth to their normal shape and function while preventing sensitivity and inhibiting further decay.
During your dental exam at our office in East Cobb, your dental hygienist will check for signs of cavities and tooth decay to ensure your oral hygiene remains in peak condition.
Having served the East Cobb and Roswell for years, we know your dental needs are unique and different from your neighbor. That's why we offer a variety of dental services to address each patient's special circumstances, from standard cleanings to complex root canals. By using the latest innovations and techniques in dentistry, we can better serve each client on an individualized level, leading to better comprehensive dental care.
We're taking new patients and accept most major forms of dental insurance to keep your teeth healthy and clean without breaking the bank. Contact our office today to schedule your dental exam and learn more about our history!770-691-5051

The first full-service location of wildly popular Cuban sandwich shop Cubanos ATL opens September 20 in downtown Roswell offering an expanded menu and a full bar with cocktails.
In addition to a tight list of traditional Cuban sandwiches, look for overnight oats, Cuban toast, and ham and cheese croissants with Cuban coffee and coffee drinks at breakfast, Spanish, Italian, and spicy-themed charcuterie boards, and desserts like caramel flan and tres leches cake. The bar starts serving mojitos, daiquiris, beer, and wine in the afternoon. All sandwiches are served on La Segunda Central Bakery bread — the oldest Cuban bread maker in the United States — and are created using family recipes.
People order at the counter and take a number. Food is then delivered to the table when its ready.
Opening his Cuban sandwich shop during the pandemic wasn’t what owner Ozzy Llanes planned on when he began working on the tiny house food trailer that would eventually become the first location of Cubanos ATL in metro Atlanta.
A Cuban native, Llanes moved to Atlanta from Miami over a decade ago and spent years searching for a “descent” Cuban sandwich here. Llanes designed and built the tiny house takeout joint on wheels and equipped it with a small kitchen and prep station, opening it in a parking lot of a small retail complex on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs in the summer of 2020. Lines formed early and remained steady throughout the rest of that year.
Llanes went on to open two more locations the following year, one in Cumming and the other at the Chattahoochee Food Works in Atlanta’s Underwood Hills neighborhood. For the Roswell location, Llanes continues those expansion plans, which now includes his first sit-down restaurant and cocktail bar.
Taking over the former Cricket Wireless space on Alpharetta Street, Cubanos ATL seats around 60 people between the dining room, small bar, and sunny patio beside the restaurant, decked out with bright yellow chairs, red umbrellas, and string lights illuminating the space in the evening. Unlike other locations, Cubanos ATL in Roswell also features a retail section for purchasing wines from Argentina, Spain, and Napa Valley and Cuban rums, vodka, and tequila, along with other beverages.
And it appears Llanes isn’t done opening new locations of Cubanos ATL. He’s now set his sights on South Downtown, opening along Mitchell Street and historic Hotel Row, part of the renovation project led by Atlanta-based Braden Fellman Group. Like the Roswell location, expect breakfast, lunch, and dinner and a full bar.
Open Sunday - Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Thursday - Saturday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Canton Street restaurant owner Jenna Aronowitz: “My biggest source of advertising is those 2,000 cars going past my restaurant every single day.” ROSWELL, Ga.

ROSWELL, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - A Roswell City Council committee has voted to delay the creation of a task force for a controversial pedestrian project for Canton Street in the town’s historic district.
At a meeting of the Public Safety and Public Works Committee Tuesday night, council members discussed the parameters of the Canton Street Promenade Task Force but decided they needed more time before making the task force official.
A few weeks ago, Mayor Kurt Wilson caused an uproar when he announced he wanted to create “a pedestrian-friendly promenade concept designed to create a more vibrant downtown historic district.” Wilson’s original plan was to close a portion of Canton Street all summer long as a trial run. He then tweaked the plan, saying the street closure would only happen on weekends.
For weeks, Wilson has held meetings with angry Canton Street business owners who are upset that street parking wouldn’t be available in the historic district, forcing their customers to park blocks away. They urged the city to wait until an approved parking deck is built before trying out a promenade concept.
Eventually, city leaders decided to create a task force.
At the meeting on Tuesday, the council members showcased the proposed framework of the task force, but they decided they needed more time to determine what’s next. Committee members did collectively decide that seven people will make up the Canton Street Promenade Task Force. The six council members will each select one person, and Mayor Kurt Wilson will do the same.
Jenna Aronowitz owns a restaurant on Canton Street called 1920 Tavern. She said the back and forth between city leaders and business owners who oppose the plan is troubling.
“To continue this when there’s no thought process with any of it is just silly,” said Aronowitz. “My hope is that the city realizes that this promenade is an absolute disaster waiting to happen.”
Mayor Wilson said there’s no timeline on when the promenade would happen since the task force members would be an important part of the decision.
“The first mission, the objective of the task force, is to say, what’s the problem? The problem is, can you open up the Canton Street Promenade temporarily? Can you solve that problem? So, the task force will address that. Out of that will probably come timelines. So, it would be incredibly premature for me to say,” said Wilson.
City council is set to meet next Wednesday to finalize the framework for the task force. A council member said they will decide on the framework first and appoint people to the task force at a later date.
Aronowitz said she wishes the city would get rid of the idea altogether.
“You’re taking away my biggest source of advertising,” she said. “My biggest source of advertising is those 2,000 cars going past my restaurant every single day.”

ROSWELL, Ga. - The plan to turn a busy section of a Roswell street into a walking promenade has been paused. Tuesday night, city leaders agreed to form a task form to take a closer look at the plan and its impact.
"Nothing says ‘Welcome’ like a closed street in front of your restaurant," said Ryan Pernice, who owns two restaurants along Canton Street.
Like other business owners in the immediate area, Ryan Pernice was shocked to learn several weeks ago that there were plans to shut down a portion of the bustling road to traffic.
"We have these businesses we've invested millions of dollars in and all of a sudden we see on Facebook that the street in front of our restaurant is going to be closed," said Pernice.
While the mayor and other city leaders believed it would bring an even more energetic vibe to the area, many business owners believe it will add to the parking and traffic problems, and would hurt their businesses.
City leaders agreed to form a task force made up of city leaders, business owners, and residents to take a closer look at the impact of Canton Street becoming a walkable promenade.
"Look at the impact and make sure we have all the plans as we go forward, if we create a promenade," said city council member Peter Vanstrom.
"I want to make sure we're listening to them, but I also want to make sure they're thriving and making money," said council member Lee Hills.
No matter what happens down the road, Pernice sees this as a step in the right direction.
"It went from this is happening, the road is closing, to now we're at a point where we have a little more insight in the process. That I call a win," said Pernice.
While there's no timeframe as to when the task force will be formed and how long before they come up with a recommendation on how to proceed, it won't be Memorial Day, as was the initial plan.
The task force will have 45 days to conduct a study to learn the impact of making the area more pedestrian-friendly.ROSWELL, Ga. — Judie Raiford has made a living on Canton Street in Roswell, making and selling jewelry and art.

ROSWELL, Ga. — Judie Raiford has made a living on Canton Street in Roswell, making and selling jewelry and art. She has more than 4,000 items she's personally made in her gallery, and she features 200 other artists from around Georgia and the United States.
Raiford has seen development up and down Canton Street for years and counted herself fortunate during the pandemic when many other businesses shut down.
"Business, like everybody else, is not great," Raiford said. "We’re still in business. Most of the galleries went under during the pandemic. I didn’t. I’m lucky, I own my building. That makes a big difference.”
The future of Raiford's gallery has her all fired up. On Tuesday night, Roswell City Council voted to form a task force that will include business owners and residents. The task force is comprised of four business owners, two residents and an at-large member.
The committee will have 45 days to conduct a study to see if the bustling Canton Street could use a makeover by shutting down car traffic to make it more pedestrian-friendly. Proposals have shown the city could shut down at least 200 feet of the street from East Valley to Elizabeth Way.
"Every time Canton Street is closed, I'm down 60 to 100 percent in revenue," Raiford said. "We can't stay in business if they do that to us all the time."
City councilmember Christine Hall cited safety concerns with the current amount of traffic passing through the popular Canton Street. She said the idea of making the district more walkable with a promenade could cut down on potential accidents.
"A more walkable space also brings more people to the area, and they can spend more time in the area," Hall said. "If they can spend more time in the area, they will likely spend more of their dollars in the area."
Concerned business owners fear already sparse parking options could dwindle by shutting down vehicle traffic, and delivery trucks would have a difficult time supplying businesses. Roswell voters previously voted to build a parking deck to alleviate congestion due to cars trying to find places to park. However, the city has not provided details on where and when that would be built.
Not everyone saw the task force selection as fair. City councilmember Sarah Beeson claimed there were times during the selection process that she was incredibly frustrated.
Roswell Mayor Kurt Wilson said the council accepted 80 applications, and each councilmember had a say to whittle the group down to seven. The task force appointees were chosen behind closed doors, which riled up opponents to the process.
“We had the votes, we could’ve done this," Wilson said. "We could’ve done this a long time ago, but I didn’t feel like that was in the best interest of the city because there were real concerns by stakeholders, business people and residents. This does not mean this is a trojan horse, this is pretend, a fake job, we're going to do it anyway. It's a really genuine task force to address the issues and figure out if this could work."
Meantime, Raiford wants to keep Canton Street open to car traffic. She said the future of her shop and so many other businesses depend on it.
"I've never failed in anything and I don't plan to," Raiford said. "I'm responsible to the seven people that work here. I'm responsible to the 200 artists I represent. I'm responsible to myself, so I will stay in business no matter what it takes."

ROSWELL, Ga. — Early voting begins today for local and county races across Georgia. Races are underway for mayors, city council members and school boards.

The first person to vote at the library was a candidate for the Roswell city council, Jason Miller. He votes early, and in person, every election year.
“And I wanted to make sure I get my vote cast early,” he said. “Last year I waited until the last day of early voting, and that was quite the wait, so I wanted to go ahead and get that knocked out first thing this morning.”
In Roswell, nine city council members are on the ballot. Brad Tennant also wanted to be among the first voters.
“We’ve met all the candidates for city council in Roswell. We’ve talked to each one of them,” he said. “So we’re gonna be very informed on how we vote today.”
He had no line to stand in and was finished in a few minutes. Tennant knows municipal and county races don’t generate as much enthusiasm as state and national elections. Turnout is generally lower. But he thinks that should change.
“I don’t believe that people think that local elections matter, that there’s not a major impact that national elections would have,” he said. “But yet, it’s from the grassroots of local elections that everything moves upward.”
Penny Thomas was another first-day voter. She calls it her “civic duty” and implores others to vote in local elections.
“I’m not sure why people don’t come out and do it, because everything starts at the local level,” she said.
There 14 early-voting locations in Fulton County are open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. Early voting goes until Friday, Nov. 3.
