• We are proud to announce that Dr. Travis Whitley is now board certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. A Diplomate is a periodontist who has made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the specialty. We are proud and excited to have Dr. Whitley on our team!
  • Since 2015, Raleigh Periodontics and other dentists and dental specialists in the area have come together twice a year to provide free dental care to those who are unable to afford standard dental care. Dentists, assistants, hygienists and volunteers from our community join together to offer their services. We are honored to be a part of this caring community.
