The Mary Huffman Family Dentistry Team

At Mary Huffman Family Dentistry and Lenoir Family Dentistry, we are pleased to offer preventive, pediatric, and emergency dental services for you and your family at two separate locations. In addition, we provide cosmetic dentistry services, dental implant restorations, and general dentistry services. At our Morganton office, we also offer sleep apnea solutions.

Our mission is the same at both locations: to improve the health of our patients by providing them with the highest quality of dental care. We firmly believe that good oral health is essential for overall quality of life. We have designed both offices to be warm and welcoming, and we look forward to meeting your entire family!

You will enjoy our team of professionals at both offices and their commitment to providing compassionate, consistent care. We know our patients want to keep their teeth healthy and beautiful for a lifetime, so we work hard to help our patients stay motivated to make their dental health a priority.

Dr. Mary Huffman and Dr. Robbie Sheffield are proud to provide their patients with modern, high-tech facilities so our patients can receive the best dental care available.

We look forward to meeting you and your entire family so we can provide a lifetime of quality dental care.

A Visit to Your Office Feels Like a Visit with Friends!

As a 60th birthday gift for myself, I chose Six Month Smiles braces. They were put on May 15, 2015. It was the best gift ever!! I have never smiled so in my life, and if not for you, Dr. Mary, and your wonderful staff, that would have never happened for me. I bragged so about you all, my husband is now a patient of yours too. We are of the age when going to the dentist had become something to dread, but a visit to your office feels like a visit with friends. Thank you all of you for being our dentist—and friends.
