Our number one goal is keeping your smile

We believe that a healthier smile means a happier you.


Are damaged or missing teeth causing you to hide your smile? Are you embarrassed by tooth decay, broken, or cracked teeth? Don’t hide any longer. Get your beautiful smile back with a dental crown or dental bridge.


Most people have had a filling at some point in their lives. Dental fillings are used to treat tooth decay or to restore a damaged tooth. The most popular type of filling is the silver amalgam filling.


At Happy Tooth family and cosmetic dentistry, we will give you a free smile assessment to help you make the choice that is right for you, your budget, and your lifestyle. We’ll always help to preserve your natural teeth.


For most teenagers, getting braces is a rite of passage. If you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, regardless of your age, braces are often the best option to help straighten teeth.


Invisalign is the “invisible” alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. Invisilign is also removal when needed.


We offer other dental services such as the treatment of periodontal disease, also called gingivitis or gum disease which is fairly common in even younger patients.

  • Words cannot begin to describe how much I would like to thank you all for what you have done for me. I had been in too much pain for far too long. But when I went to The Happy Tooth, it took all of about two minutes to find out the problem. I cannot begin to express how much I appreciate these wonderful and caring people.

  • Dr. Moray is a professional, efficient orthodontist who knows exactly what he is doing. He had no problem fitting me in his schedule despite him not being my primary care dentist. I never had to wait in the lobby, as his staff schedules his appointments far enough apart to leave some cushion room.

  • As a parent I felt so much gratitude toward all the staff on the care of Michael's teeth and appointments. It felt great to see the results today after so much dedication and effort. The Happy Tooth is a wonderful office that really cares about your child. Everyone was so kind and caring. Thank you all!

  • I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here at The Happy Tooth! These past few years have been a learning experience. The staff has been wonderful in catering to the unforeseen wire pops and breaking of brackets. I will refer this practice to anyone looking to have a good experience in a family-oriented environment.

  • After visitng several practices, I knew The Happy Tooth Orthodontics was the right choice. My daughter needed minimal orthodontics treatment. Dr. Moray was honest and left the decision up to me. His knowledge of bone structure and orthodontic treatment was very impressive. I knew I was at the right place!

  • This was our first experience ever with braces. We had no idea what to expect from this treatment. Everyone here at The Happy Tooth made the experience completely painless and easy! Now we are not afraid of hearing, "Your child needs braces!"

  • I have been under the care of this very wonderful practice for many years now. Today, I write, because I had a terrible experience losing my front tooth. I called The Happy Tooth office in Chapel Hill, where my dentist built a new tooth, almost out of nothing! I couldn't be happier, and am extremely grateful!
