A Message to Our Patients
In order for the dental profession to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the American Dental Association and North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners both released recommendations last evening to postpone all elective, non-urgent dental procedures and cleanings. We are committed to the health, safety, and well-being of our patients, our team, and the greater community. Therefore, we have made the well-informed decision to modify our schedule as of Tuesday March 17th, and close the office for all non-emergent procedures. Our office will remain closed for the month of April . If you are a patient scheduled at our office during this timeframe, we will be reaching out to you regarding your appointment. If you are a patient of record with a dental emergency, please call our office at 919-469-9986 so that you can be evaluated. We will continue to monitor the recommendations given to us as new information becomes available, and we will update you accordingly. Thank you for your trust, patience, and understanding as we all navigate through this situation.
Be safe and stay healthy!

My experience with the doctor and team was just great. What a pleasure to be able to have a practice this convenient and very highly recommended. I look forward to my next visit. Quite the team!
We thank Dr. Brenegan for spending as much time as he did explaining the necessary procedure. He put medical into layman terms and we both thoroughly understood our next steps. Plus he was optimistic about the future outcome!
