Our Story

My Friend’s Dentist started in the summer of 2018 in Wilmington, NC with the mission of providing the best patient dental experience possible and caring for people through dentistry. “Let’s be honest, no one enjoys going to the dentist,” says Dr. Mike DeFee, the Lead Dentist at My Friend’s Dentist, “But, everyone can enjoy the benefits of healthy, beautiful teeth. Our philosophy… ‘Always Be Smiling’ centers on those benefits and informs every aspect of how we provide care.”

In addition to providing implant, cosmetic and general dental services, My Friend’s Dentist openly publishes the prices of all standard procedures, offers savings on treatment through it’s Dental Membership Plan and accepts in-network insurance. “Treatment cost shouldn’t be a secret,” says Dr. Lauren Marechal, an Associate Dentist at My Friend’s Dentist, “That’s why we publish our pricing and why we always review pricing as part of our standard of care. At the end of the day, we’re here to provide a transparent, comfortable experience. The only thing you should be surprised by is how much you enjoyed your experience.”

In October, 2019 My Friend's Dentist added a 3rd statement to its mission, 'Be Responsible Stewards of the Communities We Serve' and as part of the effort pursued and was rewarded the B Corporation Certification - becoming the 3rd dental practice in the United States and 1st in North Carolina to meet rigorous B Lab standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. The organizations Annual Benefit Report, which is published to the public, transparently catalogs its efforts.
