Dr. Mel is dedicated to making each of her patients as happy and as comfortable as possible. She deems it a personal challenge to work with fearful patients to understand their needs and to change their perceptions about dentistry. Through patient education and patience, she engages patients and motivates them to become more active in their comprehensive health as well as their oral health.
While Dr. Mel enjoys restoring and extracting teeth, she especially enjoys esthetic dentistry including prosthetic dentistry (crowns, bridges, partial and full dentures, as well as implant restoration), smile restoration, and limited orthodontics (such as Clear Correct and Invisalign).
Dr. Mel’s hobbies include fishing, basketball, reading, and traveling. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, National Dental Association, and the Old North State chapter of the North Carolina Dental Society.
