About Our Staff

The Health Department Dental Clinic is staffed by two full-time dentists, Dr. Michael Day and Dr. Stephanie George, two full-time dental hygienists, and five full-time dental assistants.

Most of our clinical staff has been providing services in Orange County for over 15 years. In addition to our own staff, we also contract with a dentist one day a week and the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry for dental residents to provide treatment services, enabling us to care for additional members of our community.
