chapel hill dentist dr. nathan white

Nathan O. White, DDS

I’m a family and cosmetic dentist who strives to provide excellent conservative dental care using evidence based dentistry.

Originally from Greenville, NC, I came to Chapel Hill to attend UNC. I like to joke that UNC couldn’t get rid of me, as I pursued all of my studies at UNC-CH. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Biology with Honors (2004), Doctor of Dental Surgery with Honors (2008), and completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program (2009). I currently serve as an adjunct faculty member at the UNC School of Dentistry.

I enjoy traveling and have provided dental care as part of an externship in Adelaide, Australia, as well as a mission trip to Belize, Central America.

Aside from dentistry, I love music, food, UNC Basketball, and spending time with my wife Annie (who is a dental hygienist), our greyhound Luna, and Ollie our cat. I’m committed to helping you smile!
