About Us

What is Carolina Dentistry?

Carolina Dentistry is the home of all the clinics at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry, including the Dental Faculty Practice (DFP). It is where our students learn and our faculty provide care.

With all dental specialties under one roof, Carolina Dentistry can provide all the care you need – from cleanings to complex surgery.

Carolina Dentistry can be your dental home for life.

Who provides dental care at Carolina Dentistry?

There are three provider levels for patients at Carolina Dentistry.

Predoctoral Students/Dental Hygiene Students: predoctoral students who are earning their Doctor of Dental Surgery, or DDS, degree. Dental hygiene students are earning their Bachelor of Science or a certificate degree in dental hygiene. Both predoctoral and dental hygiene students are supervised by faculty.

Graduate Students/Residents: students who have earned their DDS degree but are completing additional training in a specialty. For example, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, etc.

Faculty: fully licensed dentists who also teach our predoctoral or graduate students.

What makes Carolina Dentistry different?

Carolina Dentistry is first in care, for the people. As the first dental school in the state, community dentists rely on the experts and innovative technology at Carolina Dentistry to help bridge the gap for people across North Carolina.

Whether your oral health needs include pediatric dentistry, braces, dentures or complex care, Carolina Dentistry has the expertise you need, all in one place. No need to dash around to six different offices for your care.
