Wilmington’s Leader in Dentistry
Stephen Edgerton, DDS, AAACD
Dr. Edgerton is one of 353 current dentists
accredited with the American Academy of
Cosmetic Dentistry worldwide. He obtained his
undergraduate degree from North Carolina State University
and his graduate degree in dentistry from the University
of North Carolina Chapel Hill. He is in practice with his
daughter, Dr. Taylor Edgerton Glenn.
The AACD is the world’s largest non-profit member
organization dedicated to advancing excellence in
comprehensive oral care that combines art and science to
optimally improve dental health, aesthetics, and function.
It fulfills its mission by offering educational opportunities,
promoting and supporting the accreditation process,
serving as a user-friendly and inviting forum for the creative
exchange of knowledge and ideas, and providing accurate
and useful information to the public and the profession.
“In our practice, we have years of experience and use the
latest dental technology and equipment,” Dr. Edgerton
says. “My personal goal has always been to be the very best
dentist. I strive to know the latest techniques and dental
materials by participating in more than 100 hours
of continuing education a year.”
A major part of this education is through the AACD
and the Pankey Institute, studying advanced technologies,
cosmetic dentistry, occlusal therapy, sleep disorders and TMJ.
Dr. Edgerton also participates in the Give Back a Smile
program, which was launched in 1999. Since then AACD
member dentists, dental laboratories, and other dental
professionals have volunteered their time and expertise
pro bono, to restore the damaged smiles of more than
1,400 survivors of intimate partner violence.
