Meet Dr. Turner

Named by Chapel Hill and Durham magazines as one of the top dentists in the Triangle every year since 2010, Dr. Amy Turner is renowned for her gentle touch and her excellent patient care. She values not only delivering the best possible treatment to all patients she sees, but seeks to get to know each patient as an individual as well. It is important to her that even the most dental-phobic patient has a positive experience, and she strives to be gentle and caring. She also endeavors to educate her patients while caring for them, by explaining all treatment as thoroughly as possible. She excels at providing care for the whole family, from a child’s first exam and cleaning to providing quality restoration for that child’s grandparents. Dr. Turner attended UNC Chapel Hill for her undergraduate degree, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 2000. She also attended UNC Chapel Hill for dental school, graduating as one of the top students in her dental class in 2004. Since graduating from dental school, Dr. Turner has worked in with several dental offices in Chapel Hill, Durham, and Cary. She took over Dr. Buckley Cozart’s dental practice when he retired after thirty-five years in January 2010. Dr. Turner is a member of the Chapel Hill Comprehensive Study Club and an affiliate of the prestigious Seattle Study Club, where she stays up-to-date on developments and advances in the field of dentistry. She also supports local

organizations, providing dental care for TROSA and Project Access Durham and supporting Duke University Motorsports, Reality Ministries, and the Exchange Family Center.
