Dr. Bill Scruggs

Dr. William “Bill” Scruggs, received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Following dental school, Dr. Scruggs earned a degree in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at the VA hospital in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

While in residency, Dr. Scruggs realized his passion for prosthetics and tooth replacement therapies and the impact these treatments have on his patients’ day to day life.

“It was at the Fayetteville VA hospital while treating our nation’s veterans that my love for Prosthodontics was born. One patient specifically stands out in my mind. The patient received implants and new dentures that snapped into the implants for retention. At his follow-up appointment after delivering his dentures he looked at me and said; ‘Dr. Scruggs, you have changed my entire outlook on life.’ It was these profound words that inspired me to pursue my advanced education and training as a restorative dentist!”

Dr. Scruggs realized his passion for prosthetics and tooth replacement therapies and the impact these treatments have on his patients’ day to day life.

Education and Training

As a result, he devoted three additional years of extensive training at the highly acclaimed Graduate Prosthodontic Program at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry at Chapel Hill. During this intense, concentrated study Dr. Scruggs developed his expertise and skill focusing on a myriad of restorative cases from full mouth reconstruction to a variety of implant therapies used to replace one or more missing teeth in patients that range in age from adolescents to adults.

Dr. Scruggs continues to share his invaluable knowledge, technique and experience to local dental study groups and speaks nationally at various continuing education events about emerging technologies and implant dentistry. He is also an adjunct professor at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry spending most of his time teaching in the graduate Prosthodontic Residency clinic.

"I am Dr Bill patient and I am so happy that after visiting over 20 dentists within a couple of years (two of them from UNC were amazing but could not help me) I had finally found this Prosthodontic clinic. I have a throat injury and not an easy patient to work on. Dr Bill had been extremely kind, patient and helpful to explain every part of the process, dealing with all my anxieties and worries with care and professionalism. His work was just perfect and he didn’t mind fixing things for me as long as it takes till I was fully satisfied. I can say the same about his office - best dentist team I ever met. I highly recommend them and I hope that this honest review helps you to build a trust and consider them. I am super happy with the results. Thanks"

"My Mom is a patient of Dr. Gragg's and both of us have been extremely pleased with her dental work and the care she received. All the staff we met were professional and pleasant. Dr. Gragg is knowledgeable, compassionate and he explained the treatment options very clearly. She is 87 year old and he really listened to her goals with the dental work. That doesn't always happen! Both of us highly recommend Dr. Gragg. When we had a question after hours, Dr. Scruggs was on call and he responded quickly and was very helpful. I cannot say enough positive things about this practice."

"I confess that I had not been to the dentist since the beginning of Covid, so I was very nervous. From the wonderful people who scheduled my appointment and took the X-rays to Dr Gragg, I was so impressed with the service and the prices. Dr Scruggs senior made a crown for a front tooth for me two decades ago that is still perfect. I will be replacing two crowns created by a popular consortium five years ago that has not stood the test of time."
