The Team

Dentist

As the son of two skilled dentists, Drs. George and Veronica Walker, Dr. Zack Walker has dental care in his blood. Working with his parents and seeing the effect of their work in the community inspired Dr. Walker to follow in their footsteps. He’s excited to join the team in July of 2018. Dr. Walker began his education at Wake Forest University where he studied biology and chemistry. He earned his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry and graduated with honors in 2017. He then completed the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program in Elizabeth City through the East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Walker loves working with patients of all ages to achieve their smile goals, and he is dedicated to continuing education courses to offer a wide range of dentistry services including advanced oral surgery and endodontic (root canal) treatments. He especially enjoys advanced restorative and cosmetic cases where he gets to partner with patients to create a beautiful smile they feel proud to share. Dr. Walker maintains professional membership in the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.
When he’s not hard at work helping patients, Dr. Walker enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking, fishing, golfing, and visiting the beaches of North Carolina. He also enjoys cooking and spending time with his girlfriend, Kim.
