Dr. Mike
Lead Dentist

Dr. Mike is no stranger to going to the dentist - growing up in the small town of Hartsville, South Carolina there were a million places he would rather have been.

Now, as a dentist in Wilmington Dr. D.’s day is made each time he is able to make a patient’s experience better.

No stranger to study, with an undergraduate degree from Clemson University, a PhD in Microbiology and Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina, Dr. Mike enjoys applying his in-depth knowledge and experience to treating patients and breaking down what can be complex medical recommendations into easy to understand treatment plans and procedures.

He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, North Carolina Dental Society and an accredited provider of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Outside of the Wilmington dentist office he can be found surfing when the swell is up and spending time with his wife, Hee Young, and daughter Lila.


"Going to the dentist can be intimidating and is rarely something to look forward to — I know I didn't. I hope to be able to change your impression of what a dentist visit can be."

— Dr. Mike
