I love being a dentist. It is a rare blessing to be able to do what you truly enjoy and to help people daily get out of pain and restore functionality to teeth and beauty to a mouth.
I consider being a dentist a privilege and a bond of trust between me and the patients I serve. My wife’s and my families are from Raleigh and I take our families’ reputations in the area seriously. I am a Raleigh native (Broughton High ’93) and a lifelong Wolfpacker, having graduated from NC State with degrees in Zoology and English in 1998. I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Maryland in 2004.
After serving at Fort Bragg in the 82nd Airborne as 3rd Brigade’s dentist (where even the dentists jump out of planes), my high school sweetheart wife Emily Fulghum Roberson and I returned to Raleigh and I started practicing, serving our friends and neighbors first on Brooklyn Street and then in the practice’s current location at 1407 Hillsborough Street, which was briefly interrupted by a National Guard-sponsored vacation in Iraq.
Dedication to Education
Dentistry is a rapidly changing profession, and I take keeping up with the latest advances in materials and techniques very seriously. I earn more hours of Continuing Education than is required by the state of North Carolina.
Outside the Office
My family is the most important part of my life. My wife, Emily, is an insanely talented writer and mother. Our kids keep us busy!
Our family attends Edenton Street United Methodist Church. I am a member of the Wake County Wildlife Club and the Kiwanis Club of Raleigh, I serve on the NC Public Health Commission, and in my free time when not with my family I read, write, play golf badly, and hunt.
The Old House Fixation
My wife and I love old houses. We grew up in them, we’ve lived in them, and the practice resides in one. The old house that holds the practice and the businesses upstairs is known as the Bernard House. It housed three generations of the Bernard family through most of the 20th century, who built the home on the BC Headache Powder fortune (the B in “BC” stands for “Bernard”).
After the house served its time as a family home, it was owned by a construction company, housed lawyers, became a sorority house, and for 15 years served possibly its most noble purpose as the Interact shelter for women and families who were victims of domestic abuse.
The Bernard House underwent a much-needed renovation and restoration in 2009, in which the architectural team at Vernacular Studio (now Gensler) and the construction and demolition experts at Inland Construction removed non-original walls, restored original sight lines and windows, and saved a crumbling façade for the home’s next 100 years. The painting, inside and out, was completed by Colin Fairweather & Sons, with interior decorating help from the Interior Design Firm of North Carolina LLC.

Originally from Memphis, TN, my family and I moved to Raleigh in 1989 as I was about to enter my freshman year at Ravenscroft High School. Upon graduation in 1993, I enrolled at UNC Chapel Hill and graduated in 1997, earning a B.S. in Biology. Always interested in the medical field, I took a volunteer position with a local group of oraI surgeons, which further reinforced my desire to pursue a career in the health sciences. I was fortunate enough to be selected for the UNC-Chapel Hill dental school in 1998, where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2002. I immediately began my professional career as a general dentist and have enjoyed helping patients with their oral health care ever since. I am excited to work with Dr. Roberson to make our practice one of the premier dental practices in the Triangle.
I have lived in the North Raleigh area ever since moving here as a teenager. When I am not in the dental office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing golf, cooking, traveling, and supporting my beloved Tar Heels.
I look forward to meeting and serving you.
