Happy National Smile Month!

What is National Smile Month? Smile month is a campaign advertised by the Oral Health Foundation from May 13th-June 13th of each year. The purpose of smile month is to raise awareness of the importance of oral health issues. 

To celebrate, we will be offering 50% off the price of custom whitening trays beginning on May 6th through June 13th to patients who have had an exam within the last 6 months.

Goodbye for now

We at Clemmons Family Dental would like to inform you of the retirement of one of our hygiene team members, Sharon Dobey!  

Sharon has been practicing hygiene for 45 years and has been a loving asset practicing with us at Clemmons Family Dental for the last 27 years.  During that time Sharon has created a huge following of patients AND friends that she has grown to love and care for.  Sharon was guaranteed to be the one in the office to give above and beyond to the patients, peers and coworkers.  

Sharon, along with her husband Kent, will be spending their retirement in their new home they have found alongside the intercoastal waterway in North Myrtle Beach.  Sharon will get to spend her days enjoying the coastal birds, relaxing on the beach, and most of all hitting the links of the many golf courses the beach has to offer.

We graciously want to thank Sharon for her loyalty and friendship and professionalism she has given to our team and her patients.  To say that she will be greatly missed is an understatement.  We are so happy for her, and we all have our bags packed to go and visit.

If you would like to send Sharon a message or a card, please contact the office so we can get you the information needed.

Thank you again to Sharon Dobey – we love you!

We would like to welcome Ashley Carter!

  • Dr.

    Born in India and raised in Richmond Virgina, Dr Peoples attended Medical College of Virginia for dental school.  Following graduation, she taught freshman operative dentistry at MCV for two years while also working in a private practice.

  • Dr.
    Ashley Schofield DMD

    Dr. Schofield received her undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University and her DMD from East Carolina University.  She grew up in the BBQ capital of Lexington NC.  She is happy to be practicing close to her home town.  In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, working out and keeping up the farm.  She is the ultimate dog whisperer to Kona, Chelsea, Athena and Bane.  They adore her, and the time they spend outside roaming the land.  The best of times for Dr Schofield is riding and loving her horses, JB and Marquise.  Dr. Schofield looks forward to educating her patients on oral health and forming relationships of honesty and trust.  She also looks forward to any day that there is Tacos and Queso involved 😉
