Dr. Gentry Byrd


Eligible Candidate for Board certification, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Byrd has wonderful memories of her childhood pediatric dentist, who is also her aunt! Following in her aunt’s footsteps, Dr. Byrd feels privileged to get to surround herself with children and teenagers day-in and day-out and manage their growing smiles. As a pediatric dentist with a public health background, she loves seizing the earliest opportunities to prevent future oral health problems.

Dr. Byrd grew up in eastern North Carolina and received her undergraduate degree with highest honors from the University of North Carolina. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery, graduating with distinction from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honors Society. She completed her certificate in pediatric dentistry and Master of Public Health Nutrition at the University of North Carolina. She is currently eligible for board certification through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Byrd married her high school sweetheart, Warren. They enjoy playing tennis, being outdoors with their dog, Bosco, and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Byrd is an accomplished violinist. In addition to teaching children and adolescents for the last decade, she has performed across the state, including as a guest soloist with the North Carolina Symphony. The Tar Heel State has always been home, and she is ecstatic to be a part of the Raleigh community.

"I am very happy with my 7 year old sons visit to Carolina Pediatric dentistry! My son had a bad experience at a few dentists in Raleigh. He has special needs, ADHD and sensitive gag reflex, but they were great with him here!"
