At Spring Smiles, we use our resources and talents to give to the community of Holly Springs and surrounding communities. We partner with Wings of Armor, a local non-profit that donates resources to our homeless population to help them survive and get back on their feet. We’re getting our patients involved, too: For each new patient who comes into the office, we donate a “dental care package”. When faced with the realities of inadequate shelter, even the smallest items can be a huge blessing to those going through hard times. A toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and other items can bring encouragement, health, and help provide basic support for daily function. Spring Smiles is honored to provide these kits to those who need it most. In each kit there will be blank card. When you become a new patient at Spring Smiles, feel free to write an anonymous, brief, encouraging note to the person who will receive this gift as a result of your visit with us. It means more than you know. When you visit, feel free to stop by our display wall and learn more about the important work that Wings of Armor is doing in Wake County. Its our way of using dentistry to create a stronger community.
Your Holly Springs Dentist
Get to Know Dr. Duncan
Dr. Gabriel Duncan earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery at UNC Chapel Hill School of Dentistry in 2012. While there he was honored to travel to Eastern Europe as a student-dentist as well as volunteer at the local SHAC clinic and the North Carolina Missions of Mercy Dental clinic. He was also a member of Delta Sigma Delta honor society. While serving in the orphanages of Moldova he had the privilege to provide dental treatment to the children with no access to dental care. He counts this as one of the most rewarding and life-changing experiences he’s ever had. As a child Dr. Duncan was terrified of the dentist. It wasn’t until the age of 13 when an accident with a hammer prompted the need for an emergency dental visit. The care and skill his dentist displayed that day slowly began to change Dr. Duncan’s perception of dentistry. Many years later when he was considering dental school, he went back and shadowed the very dentist who had helped him, and it was at that visit It was then that he decided this was his life’s work. Dr. Duncan cares about his patients and applies the same level of care to them as his dentist did for him years ago. His goal is to build relationships, relieve discomfort and prevent large dental problems by fixing them while they are still small.
A self-described “education junkie”, Dr. Duncan is constantly learning and improving ways to provide the most advanced and quality dentistry to his patients in the most gentle and conservative way. Dr. Duncan is always adding to his dental knowledge so that he can provide the best care possible. He believes in in utilizing the latest advancements in education and technology, such as low-radiation Cone Beam 3D technology to bring the best in prevention and treatment to his patients.
Dr. Duncan is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, having successfully completed the Fellowship Exam in 2018. He is also an active member of Spear Education, CEREC doctors, and the ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantologists). Dr. Duncan is grateful to be able to provide a full range of services, including Implants, Invisalign and Myobrace to patients of all ages.
Outside of the office Dr. Duncan enjoys travelling, volunteering, working out and spending time with his family.
