Meet Dr. Chapman
North Raleigh Dentist
Dr. Chapman takes pride in being honest with patients and genuinely has their best interests at heart for their dental care. She treats patients like family and recommends the same treatments that she would for her husband, parents, children, or siblings. Clinical excellence, high ethical standards, and professional responsibility are cornerstones at the University of the Pacific Arthur A Dugoni School of Dentistry where Dr. Chapman received her Doctor of Dental Surgery.
Dr. Chapman has lived with her husband, daughter, and two cats named Brie and Stilton (yes, they’re named after cheese) in the Triangle area since 2015. Prior to that Dr. Chapman practiced in California and West Virginia where she gained excellent experience in a wide variety of procedures, complex dental care, and helping patients overcome deep dental phobias.
Dentistry is a career path that Dr. Chapman loves and fits her well. It offers the perfect mix of science and art while helping people achieve the smiles and dental health that they deserve. She is constantly evaluating and seeking out better techniques and technology to improve the dental care she delivers.
Dr. Chapman invests heavily in continuing education and collaboration with other dentists because she enjoys learning and continuing to offer the best treatments available for patients. Most notably, Dr. Chapman completed the comprehensive and intensive Implant Continuum courses from the prestigious Stanley Institute to master fully guided dentalimplant surgery and restoration. She also earned her Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, an organization dedicated to dental implant education and advancement. In addition, she is a member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, the Wake County Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentists, and a SPEAR Study Club.
Dr. Chapman has the eyes and skills of an artist to help her bring beauty and esthetics into her everyday clinical work. She enjoys watercolor painting, acrylic painting, drawing, and digital photography. Dr. Chapman spent her entire junior year of college studying abroad in London, England to pursue her interests in arts, culture, and travel. Each week she drew famous paintings in The National Gallery for an art class. All of the photographs decorating the office were taken by her or her husband. For Halloween, Dr. Chapman is famous for her elaborate pumpkin sculptures.
Dr. Chapman is friendly and unintimidating, which allows a relaxed and comfortable doctor-patient relationship that leads to better discussions around treatment. With patients, she welcomes the opportunity to explain the rationale behind the recommended treatment, technology, or techniques so patients can make informed decisions about their dental care.
Dr. Chapman has a wide variety of interests outside of dentistry such as tennis, skiing, rock climbing, gardening, cooking, traveling, and practicing the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. She played in the 4A state tennis tournament twice in high school and played on the NCAA Whitman College Women’s Tennis team for two years while juggling a rigorous class load in pursuit of a degree in Biology. At home, she grows an extensive garden each year.
