Angie Dunkling Averill
Dr. Angie Dunkling Averill is from Vermont where both of her parents are General Dentists. Dr. Averill attended The University of Vermont and received a Bachelors of Science in Biology, graduating from the Honors College. She knew that a career in Dentistry was right for her after shadowing both in general and oral surgery offices. Dr. Averill continued her education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, earning her DMD degree. Following in both of her parent’s footsteps, she was accepted into a General Practice Residency program at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, VT, where she was one of four dental residents in the entire state of Vermont and was exposed to all aspects of general dentistry and private practice. Upon successfully completing the GPR, Dr. Angie Averill and her husband Dr. Gordon Averill settled down in Santa Monica CA to begin their careers. They purchased a practice together and worked side by side for 5 years. After having two children and navigating the pandemic away from family, they ultimately decided to sell their practice to move back east to be closer to relatives. They both have immediate family in the Charlotte area.

Dr. Averill is committed to advanced continuing education, attending lectures throughout the US, focusing on restorative and cosmetic procedures. She is dedicated to doing quality dentistry in a relationship-based practice, focusing on individual needs of each patient. “I always believe that we need to put the patient first, making decisions together, like they are our family members.”
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Dunkling enjoys spending time with her husband, two children and two dogs.
