Oak Ridge Office

A Welcome from Dr. DeVaney – Oak Ridge NC Dentist

I want to thank you for your interest in DeVaney Dentistry and taking the time to browse our website. I want you to know that I have a true passion for what we do — the procedures and the customer service we provide. My job is to deliver beautiful, long-lasting, predictable dentistry in a comfortable manner. Just as importantly, my job is to promote a personal relationship between each of our patients and the professionals at DeVaney Dentistry. We have a very busy practice, largely because we strive to make you feel like you are the only patient in our office. Personalized customer service is the key to our success.

In 2000, I had a decision of where to start and grow a practice. In hindsight, I could not have made a better choice. I grew up in NW Guilford County and today it is an even better place to raise a family and have a career than it was when I was a child. I am blessed with the opportunity to live and work in NW Guilford County.

I graduated from UNC School of Dentistry in 1999, but that was only the beginning of my education. Other than getting to meet new people, the best part of my job is learning. I am proud to say that the dentistry I deliver today is entirely different that it was 10 years ago. I will try to summarize that evolution for you.

The first 10 years of my career was spent concentrating on cosmetic and complex restorative education done mostly at the Frank Spear Institute, recognized as the No. 1 source of advanced dental education by dentists. This culminated with the invitation to be a visiting faculty member at Spear, training with the elite dentists in the country. The last 10 years have shifted focus to dental surgery, including implant placement, gum graft surgery and impacted wisdom teeth removal. Sedation training has been a big part of this. Much of the surgical training was completed at the Triangle Dental Institute under founder Dr. Mark Hunt and Dr. David Simpson, former chairman of UNC Department of Periodontics. From 2015-2018, Dr. DeVaney’s training has been at the Pikos Institute to develop expertise in implants and implant-related grafting procedures. This background gives our patients the benefits of a unique blend of advanced cosmetics, complex restoration and surgical experience. Frankly, it is not something you will find at most dental office.

    From my first phone conversation to set up a "new patient with a sore tooth" appointment, I felt like I would get the care I needed. Everyone was friendly and went above and beyond to ensure I felt at ease at the office. I was greeted pleasantly as I walked in the main door and got checked in quickly. I waited less than 10 minutes and was escorted to the exam room. The answers I gave to questions were taken seriously and tests were explained and never forced. I always felt like I was being heard and in control of what did or did not get done. There were so many personal and comforting details done excellently and Dr. DeVaney listened carefully and spoke to all my concerns. My overall first impression was outstanding!

    This was like walking into a room full of angels. I was experiencing the worst toothache of my life. From the moment I entered, even before I got into the chair, I started feeling better. I could tell that these people cared. From Tina and Susan at the front desk, the extraordinary assistant Cady, to Dr. Vines, I received the most comprehensive care imaginable. I was up and out of there in minutes feeling completely cured and deeply grateful. What a great group of people.

    Todd & Julie Knight

    Our son broke a back molar one evening at a basketball game and we were in the middle of transitioning from a pediatric dentist to finding an "adult" dentist for him. Vickie at the front desk made this happen very quickly and got him in less than 2 days!! The staff at DeVaney were very personable and professional all in one!! We were very pleased with the care our son received!!

    Chris Holcomb

    Had to go for an emergency extraction a few months ago. I was seen within a couple hours of calling and went in with hardly any wait time. In and out in no time. Overall great experience.

    Kimberly Steinke

    I visited DeVaney Dentistry as a new patient this afternoon. All of the staff were wonderful starting from when I went to the wrong location to once I finally arrived and met with the hygienist, Maria. She was super in everything she did as she welcomed me, went through my history, completed X-rays and an exam, and talked me through the next steps for treatment. I appreciated the special care and attention she took to make sure I understood everything she was saying and eased any anxiety I may have experienced. The doctor was equally professional and talked me through everything he did as well. Shasta explained everything with my insurance and next appointment as I was checking out. As a new patient and new in the area, finding new doctors and dentists can be a challenge. I am thrilled to find a dentist office and staff who made me feel so welcome and at ease from the very start!

    Devaney Dentistry at Oak Ridge is truly a fantastic practice. I hadn't been to a dentist in years and had a plethora of anxiety about going. I needed an extraction and was extremely nervous, as soon as I walked in I was greeted by Susan and Tina at the front desk, who made me feel welcome and calm. Not even 5 minutes of waiting and Brooke brought me into a room and made me feel comfortable, Dr. Vines explained what he was doing the whole time. Thank you and I will be recommending Devaney Dentistry to anyone and everyone who will listen. Amazing staff.

    Billy Rich

    From the first call to Dr. DeVaney's office, Susan was very understanding and compassionate. I was anxious upon arriving for my appointment but Cady instantly put me at ease. I wish I had found them sooner but I am very glad I am a patient now. Give them a call, you won't regret it.

    Kelley McCoy

    I have never had a dental visit like this. They go above and beyond to put you at ease and explain everything. As a nurse, I appreciate their attention to detail, education and making sure I understood my treatment plan. Susan at the front desk is so friendly and makes me smile! My hygienist Kelly, was superb at explaining everything and telling me ways to better take care of my teeth. And Dr. Devaney! He was genuinely engaged in the one on one visit and did not seem rushed at all. He focused on my needs and made sure that I understood everything well. He thanked me twice for coming in. You just don't find customer service like this anymore.

    Tristan Burd

    This office has such a warm and welcoming presence. Shasta and Susan were very accommodating. They were very efficient in transitioning my entire family to this practice. Kelly was thorough but gentle with her cleaning and exam. Would recommend!

    David Shobe

    Courteous, friendly, and efficient. The staff at DeVaney Dentistry are all excellent. From routine cleaning to more involved procedures, the patient’s needs and concerns are always their top priority. Special recognition to Brooke Moore for her friendliness and professionalism.

    Linsey Brown

    I am so happy that I made the switch to DeVaney Dentistry! EVERYONE was so welcoming on my first visit. It was a great experience from the entire staff. Highly recommend this group if you are looking for a new dentist 🙂

    Cheryl Harward-Belue

    Friendliest staff I have ever encountered in a dental office. From Shasta who always remembers everyone and always has a very bright disposition to my favorite hygienist. I highly recommend this practice!

    Jon Smith

    The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team is outstanding. I’ve been going to them for complicated operations and I thank them for keeping up with all the work and pressing me to clean and keep my teeth healthy. Every visit is like visiting friends. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks Cady and Michelle for the great cleaning that you give me which I have to add was the most relaxing clean compared to other practices I’ve been to!

    Nicole Saleeby

    DeVaney Dentistry has made me feel comfortable with going to the dentist, something I've not felt in the past. Everyone is caring, nice and makes you feel very comfortable and cared for personally.

    Lisa Hunsucker

    Dr Devaney and his staff have blessed me for many years with excellent skill, work ethic and care. However, I am most impressed by Dr. Devaney’s integrity. He always chooses the best treatment plan for his patients. Today I was scheduled for two crowns but he saw that only one was needed. Our world is better when people care more about others than the profitability of their business.

    Stacey Johnson

    Being able to have multiple procedures done in one visit under sedation is very important for me. Dr. DeVaney and every single member of his staff are outstanding. I highly recommend this practice. I have been a patient since 2016.

    Andrea Moore

    I have been a customer going on 3 years now. I have always had the best experiences with any procedure I have had done at Devaney in Oak Ridge. I have anxiety about dental work and I have always been made to feel comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of a dentist or interested in procedures that can be done with sedation dentistry for more comfort. Julie & Shasta are both so helpful when calling or scheduling appointments. Thank you to all the wonderful staff!!


    I have some of the worst Dental Anxiety of anyone I know. I was terrified to come here after bad experiences elsewhere in Kernersville. But OH BOY was I wrong, and in good hands. These folks are awesome. It didn't feel like they overbooked and were sprinting between rooms, there was ALWAYS a staff member by my side and asking if I needed anything or explaining what was going on. I cannot recommend a dentist more, for ANY type of work.
