They say when you love what you do, it’s not work. This applies for when you enjoy the people you work with, too. At Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry, I am fortunate to be surrounded by such smart and talented doctors, techs, and support staff. I couldn’t do it without them. If you haven’t the chance to meet the team, learn a little more about them here:
Dr. Cecilia Hwang
Dr. Hwang attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with distinction. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. As a child, Dr. Hwang feared the dentist. These fears led her to a career in pediatric dentistry. She knew pediatric dentistry was the right route for her because it allows her to be her true, silly self. Dr. Hwang is married and a mother of two boys, Evan and Owen.
Dr. Kim Nixon
Dr. Nixon received her undergraduate degree from University of Detroit and her dental degree from Northwestern University. She received her Certificate of Pediatric Dentistry from New York’s Columbia University School of Dental Surgery. With a goal to be a pioneer of pediatric dentistry, Dr. Nixon continues to help children receive great dental care through organizations like Give Kids a Smile and NC Missions of Mercy. Dr. Nixon has four kids – two boys and two girls – Kai, Malia, Ryan, and Noah. Some of her favorite things include the color orange, key lime pie, and Scooby-Doo!
Dr. Carrie Dunlap
Graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Dunlap received her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2004. In addition to being an amazing dentist to the children patients, Dr. Dunlap has three children of her own: Carson, Caroline, and Campbell. After practicing general dentistry for a couple of years, she realized her calling was to work with children. Dr. Dunlap is a huge Carolina Panthers fan and loves a quality birthday cake.
Dr. Logan Webb
Dr. Webb also received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed her training in the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Webb is recently married and enjoys spending her free time traveling. According to Dr. Webb, the best part of her day is “Seeing a happy, smiling patient leave our office after a great visit, excited to come back next time.” Dr. Webb has a sweet tooth for s’mores and most marshmallow-related treats.
Dr. Cami Miskovich
Dr. Miskovich graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Micromolecular Biology and Microbiology from University of Central Florida and earned her DMD degree from the University of Florida. While completing her undergraduate degree is when Dr. Miskovich realized her passion for dentistry and the desire to work with children. When asked what led her to choose Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry, she explained, “I fell in love with Charlotte and all it has to offer, but once I met all of the wonderful doctors I would be working with I was sure that this was the place for me.” Dr. Miskovich has a dog and cat at home, Chloe and Cupcake, and enjoys doing yoga, volunteering at local animal shelters, and watching movies in her free time.
Dr. Nate Shaw
Dr. Nate attended UNC School of Dentistry, where he was in the top five percent of his dental class and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with honors. He then attended the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, serving as chief resident and receiving his Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Nate has visited Ecuador and Kenya to provide dental care for those in need, and has worked closely with North Carolina Missions of Mercy in their free mobile dental program. Dr. Nate is married to Kate, and has a rescue dog named Kona. He is a fan of classic Disney movies like Lion King and Aladdin, and as a kid he dreamed of being a teenage mutant ninja turtle.
