Dr. Edwin Porter

Edwin Porter, DDS, FAGD

I am most passionate about changing lives through dentistry. Enhancing and restoring smiles to be healthy and beautiful can really change the outlook of a person. I love helping people become healthy, pain-free, and happy with their smile and appearance.

The exciting part about work is having a great team that can accomplish tough cases with hard work and dedication. We go out of our way to make patients feel comfortable, special, and like a part of our family.

Building relationships are very important in our office. We have several families in our practice that have been here for more than 20 years and continue to send their friends and loved ones to us. We see so many types of people and have bonded with many of our patients over the years.


Education and Continuing Education

  • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – Bachelor of Science in Public Health, 1990
  • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – Doctorate of Dental Surgery, 1994

New technology has made dentistry last longer and be a more pleasant experience for my patients. In order to keep up with the most advanced techniques and innovations in dentistry, I continue my education on a regular basis through the Pankey Institute, the Dawson Academy, Spear Education, the Medical College of Georgia, and all levels of training in CEREC® and digital dentistry. I’m also a CEREC® Mentor and train dentists all over the U.S. As a testament to my commitment to education, I have earned Fellowship status through the Academy of General Dentistry. I am also an active member of the:

  • American Dental Association
  • North Carolina Dental Association
  • Charlotte Dental Society
  • American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation

Outside the Office

I am a proud native of Charlotte, NC, and have truly enjoyed building my practice and raising my family in such a wonderful community. My wife, Kathy, and I have been blessed with four amazing children and a Great Dane, Bella, to keep us company at home. My family is the most important thing in my life; I love being a supportive dad to my kids and their sports and school activities. In my free time, I enjoy cycling and staying fit, gardening, and being active in the community through church-related charities and missions.
