Meet Dr. Michael Bass

Your Local Apex Dentist

Dr. Michael Bass is originally from Edenton, NC. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree at Brigham Young University in Utah. He then received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry in Chapel Hill. Dr. Bass enjoys water sports, snow skiing, working on home projects with his wife, Sherrie, and spending time with their 4 children, dog, cat, and chickens.

Dr. Bass is passionate about staying up to date on the latest technologies and procedures in dentistry. He consistently exceeds the recommended annual requirement for continuing education and attends courses regularly at institutions such as the Dawson Center, the Pankey Institute, Academy of R.V. Tucker Study Clubs, The Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, The Engle Institute, as well as local study clubs.

He received the Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2007.

Dr. Michael Bass is passionate about helping people become as healthy as choose to be.  Dr. Bass often lets patients know that he has had almost every dental procedure possible done in his own mouth in the past and is well aware of how it feels to be on the other side of the chair.  Having grown up in a rural community without fluoride in the water and being a typical kid whose oral health was not a priority, he experienced plenty of dental problems when he was younger.  This ultimately helped him become interested in helping others improve their dental health in a comfortable and empathetic manner without sounding judgmental or condescending.  If you are looking for someone who is understanding and really cares about how you feel, please give us a call at 919-362-6789 for an initial consultation.
