Welcome to Our Team
Behind every great orthodontic practice is a great team. We strive to create confident, beautiful smiles by providing the highest quality of orthodontic care in a comfortable, fun environment to children and adults desiring the touch of distinction.
Although our sign proclaims orthodontics, we are really in the people business and our team shares uncompromising commitment to the patient first. Our goal, under the expert direction of Dr. Robert Kent, is quality with excellence and our team continually trains and encourages excelling in all that we do. We truly enjoy who we are, what we do, where we work, and whom we work with!
Our technical team is comprised of six highly talented orthodontic assistants, led by one exceptional orthodontist. Our friendly and helpful front office team is comprised of our enthusiastic new patient coordinator, two skilled scheduling coordinators, and our fantastic office and finance manager. Our team represents many years of experience in the orthodontic profession.
Work and Play
The success of our practice is the result of a team effort, and throughout the year our staff is rewarded with the opportunity to enjoy a "staff event." Our most recent experience was a weekend of relaxation at North Carolina's Bald Head Island. As you can see from the photo below, we actually caught a big one…and we unanimously decided to keep him!!
Dr. Kent specializes in orthodontic care for children, teenagers and adults. He received two undergraduate degrees and his Doctorate in Dentistry class from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill finishing in the top 5% of his class. He received his Masters in Orthodontics from Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri and is proud to have finished first in his class. Aside from his private practices, Dr. Kent is a member of many professional organizations including the North Carolina Association of Orthodontists, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists.
In his free time, Dr. Kent enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Donna, their children and dogs. In addition, he enjoys keeping active with tennis, golf, snowboarding, working out and spending time at the beach.
