We also provide general & cosmetic services for the Morganton NC community:

Cosmetic Dentistry

From teeth whitening and veneers to a complete smile makeover—and everything in between—we offer the dental procedure to give you the smile of your dreams.

Emergency Services

If you are in pain, have lost a tooth, or have suffered an injury to your mouth, call right away. Even if you have not been a patient of ours in the past, we have flexibility during our normal office hours to accommodate emergencies such as a toothache, infection, broken tooth, or injury.


We always try to save the natural tooth whenever possible. Sometimes last resort treatment is called for because a tooth cannot be saved. When there is too much damage to a tooth, the only option might be dental extraction—especially if it is putting your other teeth at risk.

Pediatric Dentistry

Finding a dentist you trust to treat your entire family is an important part of taking care of everyone’s overall health. If you have small children, in particular, you want to know that your dentist enjoys treating kids. We treat both adults and children so you don’t have to go to 2 offices!

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a treatment that removes a damaged or dead nerve and replaces it with an inert material. In most cases we recommend a crown be placed soon after a root canal in order to maintain the strength of the tooth.

Teeth Whitening

A whiter smile is within reach with in-office and take-home whitening systems. Our in-office system uses a curing light and gives you immediate results. If you prefer to do the whitening in the comfort of your own home, we will give you a professional-grade system that includes mouth trays and gel.

“Great Dentist! Love this place and Mary Huffman. Very thorough and professional.”

Beth Sawyer

“Dr. Huffman and her team provided me with excellent care! We are new to the area and are very happy to have found such a wonderful family dentist.”

Shannon Radabaugh

“Was nervous about the procedure, but the staff took time to explain and answered my questions and made changes to make me feel comfortable.”

Louise Cottrell

“Great people, super service, no waiting for an appointment. Needed an extraction, had x-rays tooth out quickly. I usually don’t like dentists but these folks are wonderful.”

Jerry Allman

“I highly recommend Dr. Huffman and her staff. Everyone is so friendly. I was a little nervous since it had been a while since I had been to the dentist. They assured me they would take great care of me. It was a great visit… I will be going back next week for some dental work.”

Sissy Benfield

“The staff were great. Very friendly and professional. Usually am nervous at thought of having to go to the dentist but they make you feel at ease and comfortable. The facility is very clean and pleasant. Seems homier than just a sterile environment to put you more at ease. The dentist explained very thoroughly what was going on with my teeth. Appreciated that very much. I would recommend anyone to go to this dentistry with teeth issues.”

A healthy smile is just a click away
