About Us

Who Is Local Start Dental?

Local Start Dental is a not-for-profit 501 c3, state-of-the-art and on-site denture fabrication clinic.  We specialize in dental prosthetics—dentures and dental implants. Our dentists are specialists (Prosthodontists) that have years of advanced training in leading dental schools. We have the most advanced imaging system available for scanning the mouth, and all tooth replacement and extraction services are performed in our practice. State-of-the-art digital technology ensures excellent fit and function of every denture, and dentures are custom crafted on-site by a Certified Dental Technician. 

Our Students

There’s a Place for Everyone at Local Start Dental

We work closely with the UNC Adams School of Dentistry students to provide third- and fourth-year dental students with advanced training opportunities they could not otherwise access. Additionally, we provide continuing education to dental professionals and are always seeking volunteer specialists. Our students combine top-notch learning with compassionate community outreach for Durham and theTriangle area.

Implant Overdenture

This is a removable prosthesis stabilized by dental implants. An attachment is placed on the implants to allow the denture to snap into place.

This is a fixed prosthesis secured by implants. You cannot remove it from your mouth, but your dentist will remove it during your hygiene and follow up visits.

Fixed Hybrid Dentures

This merges dentures’ aesthetics with dental implants’ stability, as prosthetic teeth are securely affixed to titanium implant posts implanted in the jawbone.
