Keith RR Gaught, DDS

NC Dental License #: 9399

I grew up in Valparaiso, IN before attending Indiana University Bloomington. I then attended dental school at the Indiana University School of Dentistry. After graduating, I moved to North Carolina with my wife, Amber, where she would complete a medical residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While obtaining my license in North Carolina, I worked in a safety net clinic for the underserved in Roxboro and Yanceyville, NC. I practiced there for five years, gaining valuable experience as a clinician and serving as the dental director in my final year. For the next five years, I treated patients in private practice in Cary, NC, becoming proficient in performing the latest dental procedures.

My wife and I are the proud parents of two girls: Audriana and Genevieve. We also have a Weimaraner named Lulu, who ensures there is never a dull moment around the house!
