Meet Dr. Durning Moore, D.M.D.

He’s More Than a Dentist

Intro / Education

“This is what I love to do. The practice of dentistry is in many ways therapeutic to me. I love to use my hands to create, to heal. There is nothing more rewarding.” – Dr. Moore

After graduating in 2015 from the University of Louisville Dental School, Dr. Durning Moore went on to become an associate dentist before purchasing his first practice, Smile Moore Dental, in March 2019. He has always been a big believer in relational dentistry which is why he ensures that every patient he sees feels seen and loves to engage in genuine conversation with them.

Family / Personal Content

The same day that Dr. Moore signed the paperwork for the practice was the day when he found out he was going to be a father. Fast forward to today, Dr. Moore is the proud father of James and Annie, alongside his wife, Natalie!

When not in the office, you can find Dr. Moore golfing around Charlotte, fly fishing by the creek, grilling out, traveling, playing outdoor sports, hiking in the Carolina wilderness, or spending time with his family.

Professional Associations

Because Dr. Moore wants to bring optimal care to his dental patients, he is a firm believer in lifelong learning and serving the community through dentistry when he can.

Dr. Moore averages 50+ hours of continuing education through The Dawson Academy, Spear Education, Ripe Global, The THRIVE Dentists, and ACT Dental to stay up to date on the latest in dental best practices. Additionally, he plays an active role in the Dental Christian Fellowship, where he gets to serve others in the community that surrounds the Cotswold/Eastover neighborhood.
