Meet Dentist Dr. Amy Kimes

dr-Amy-Kimes

Dr. Amy Kimes was born in Fayetteville and grew up in western NC. She attended high school at N.C. School of Science and Math in Durham, N.C. before graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in Chemistry, and then completing her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at UNC School of Dentistry in 2002.

After completing her dental degree, Dr. Kimes began her service in the US Navy at Camp Lejeune by completing a one year Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program. While at Camp Lejeune, Dr. Kimes joined the 22D Marine Expeditionary Unit to provide care for 2,200 Sailors and Marines. Dr. Kimes was deployed aboard the USS Shreveport and was stationed at Kandahar Air Base in Afghanistan with the 22D MEU. After returning from deployment, Dr. Kimes was reassigned to the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. There she provided dental care for military officers pursuing advanced degrees.

In 2008 Dr. Kimes moved to Mount Olive to raise her family and practice general dentistry. She took over an existing dental practice that had been in operation since 1969. A massive rennovation of the office began, bringing new equipment, digital technology, and new fixtures into the office. We offer quality of service that we believe is competitive with a practice in any big city, but with a down home attitude.

Dr. Kimes philosophy is simple; prevention and restoration for the entire family. We want to help you and your family keep your smile healthy and beautiful for a lifetime, while performing the least amount of dentistry necessary to help you achieve dental health. The only way for you to have strong healthy smile is to have a good foundation. That foundation starts directly with a good doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Kimes knows it is important to take the time to listen to concerns and address them for each individual patient. Your smile says a lot about you…and a lot about Dr. Kimes. She takes pride in helping you look and feel your best.

When not in the office, Dr. Kimes spends time volunteering as a dentist for children’s dental screenings. She is constantly attending advanced training around the country and was just awarded the prestigious Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. A general dentist who is a “Fellow” in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader and exemplifies to other dentists the importance of quality continuing dental education. To earn the FAGD, a dentist must complete a minimum of 500 continuing dental education credit hours and pass a comprehensive exam. Dr. Kimes has been an AGD member for over ten years. Dr. Kimes is now working towards designation of “Mastership” in the Academy of General Dentistry. This requires an additional 600 hours in advanced training and represents a significant step up from the Fellowship designation. When your dentist has achieved the Fellowship Award, you can be assured that they are dedicated to providing the finest care in general dentistry.

In her personal life, Dr. Kimes enjoys spending time with her husband, Eric and three young children. She is an avid runner and loves to garden. She looks forward to getting to know you and your family, too!
