Meet Our Raleigh Dental Care Staff


The entire clinical staff at EarpDental attend annual recertification in Cardio Life Support to ensure that everyone at the office is equipped to save a life in the event of an emergency. As a patient of EarpDental we want to make sure that you always receive the best care from each and every one of our staff members. That is why we take extra measures to train our staff so you are always in good hands!
Additionally, we place great emphasis on continuing education in order to stay current in the latest dental techniques. Our employees attend regular CE courses to remain up to date in their area of treatment. Since 1991, our number one priority has always been and will always be our patients and their well-being.
