2024 Presidents Message

Dr. Angie Baechtold

March has arrived and we welcome March Madness basketball along with beautiful spring flowers and trees, both exceptionally good in the southeast. I am excited for the opportunity to serve as your president for this upcoming year. After 20 years as part owner in a private practice in the mountains of western North Carolina, I have pivoted to living at the coast in Wilmington, NC and working as a locum tenens pediatric dentist. I have had the unique opportunity to be a part of several impressive private practices and observe their office systems, clinical techniques, and office culture.
