Meet Dr. Stephen Edgerton

Dr. Stephen Edgerton's roots run deep here in the Carolinas, after growing up in the Queen City of Charlotte. But the rich tapestry of his past is woven together with colorful youthful years spent not only in the Tarheel state, but also in Caracas, Venezuela; Bogota, Colombia; and Connecticut.

In fact, his fondness for North Carolina led Stephen Edgerton DDS back to Raleigh where he attended North Carolina State University, graduating with a BS in zoology. Following this, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of North Carolina, the rival of his alma mater.

Recognizing his affection for and dedication to the people of North Carolina, Dr. Edgerton joined practice with Dr. David Fisher in Wallace, the small town where his parents had grown up.

The two respected Wilmington, NC dentists later expanded their Wallace practice, continuing to deliver the same cutting-edge care they had become known for. They expanded their provided services and included a broader range of restorative, cosmetic and family dental services through Edgerton and Glenn, their Wilmington practice.


Continuing Education

In 1988, Stephen Edgerton DDS sought to further his education at the world-renowned Pankey Institute, completing all six continuum classes, as well as additional coursework in Esthetics, Advanced Occlusal Therapy, and Sleep Disorders. Since then his ongoing participation in the Master's Forum has allowed him to study with the world's most respected dental educators. He's furthered his knowledge and skills, and is providing his valued patients with an array of expert dental services that truly address their every concern.

Today, Dr. Edgerton is one of the most highly educated of Wilmington dentists - he is an active Pankey Study Club member. He loves to continue his quest for lifelong learning and development. This quest led Dr. Edgerton to recently become certified in Invisalign.

To balance his dedication to his practice and the art of dentistry, our dentist in Wilmington, NC enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and their four children. The Edgerton family enjoys golfing and boating, and Dr. Edgerton has been active in Boy Scouts and the Rotary Club for several years. He also works as a volunteer in Give Back A Smile, a charity dedicated to providing cosmetic dental care at no cost to survivors of domestic violence.

A true artist who strives to help patients achieve optimal oral health, Dr. Stephen Edgerton is one of the most talented of Wilmington dentists. He delivers dentistry that is both excellent in function and esthetically perfect in his and his patient's eyes. While Dr. Edgerton doesn't want to have the biggest practice, he's constantly on a mission to have the best practice instead. For him, this means providing patients like you with superior dentistry, five-star service, and an environment that promotes trust. The two of you will work side-by-side to determine what is best for your oral health, setting the goals needed to achieve this, and then following through to ensure each is met.
