Dental Care You Can Count On

The Doctor

L Dean Simmons DDS

I am very thankful to be a dentist. I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to build relationships, educate the community, and grow as a person each day in my profession.

Education and Continuing Education

For my dental education, I attained my DDS from the University of  North Carolina School of Dentistry. I completed my dental education with the knowledge of the most advanced technologies and methods in dentistry. Because my profession changes constantly, I must always stay abreast of emerging dental advancements. As a part of my continuing education, I regularly participate in educational courses and clubs to improve and grow my skills. I am a member of the American Dental Association NC Dental Society, The Blue Ridge Dental Society, Piedmont Study Club, Spear Study Club, and has studied at Pankey Institue as well as Spears Institute. I believe that I need to continually renew my dental knowledge, because this is what is meant by being a professional.

In the Practice

I love doing dentistry, plain and simple. I find myself playing rather than working when I am at my job. The first time you walk in our door, you will feel the friendliness of the people in the practice, and you will always feel welcomed. My team gives me an opportunity to have a fantastic time being a dentist day in and day out. Our patients show their commitment to us by coming in year after year, and we are committed to always providing the highest quality services for them
