About Us

Every member of our team is dedicated to providing superlative treatment experiences, but none of it would be possible without our Chapel Hill pediatric dentists Dr. Lenise Clifton & Dr. Charles Mauney (“Dr. Chuck”). A native of Louisiana, Dr. Clifton moved to North Carolina after college and completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1992. She has residency in both pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. Dr. Mauney is a North Carolina native who graduated from North Carolina State University and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1993. Dr. Clifton and Dr. Mauney both love meeting new patients and families!
