Meet Patrick M. Roberson, DDS


Dr. Patrick RobersonI love being a dentist. It is a rare blessing to be able to do what you truly enjoy & 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 & a bond of trust between me & the patients I serve. My wife’s & my families are from Raleigh & I take our families’ reputations in the area seriously. I am a Raleigh native (Broughton High ’93) & 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 & I returned to Raleigh. I started practicing, serving our friends & neighbors first on Brooklyn Street & then in the practice’s current location at 1407 Hillsborough Street, with a brief interruption by a National Guard-sponsored vacation in Iraq.

Dedication to Education

Dentistry is a rapidly changing profession, & I take keeping up with the latest advances in materials & 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 & mother. Our kids keep us busy!

Our family attends Edenton Street United Methodist Church. I am a member of the Wake County Wildlife Club & the Kiwanis Club of Raleigh, I serve on the NC Public Health Commission, & in my free time when not with my family, I read, write, play golf badly & hunt.

The Old House Fixation

My wife & I love old houses. We grew up in them, we’ve lived in them, & the practice resides in one. The old house that holds the practice & 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, & for 15 years served possibly its most noble purpose as the Interact shelter for women & 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) & the construction & demolition experts at Inland Construction removed non-original walls, restored original sight lines & windows, & saved a crumbling façade for the home’s next 100 years. The painting, inside & out, was completed by Colin Fairweather & Sons, with interior decorating help from the Interior Design Firm of North Carolina LLC.
