    Dr. William Cheek


    North Carolina

    Dr. William B. Cheek, DDS, PA: As a native of Raleigh, I have always known I wanted to make both my home and my career here. My family has been right here for four generations, so we have deep roots in this area.

    I went to undergrad at NC State University majoring in Zoology, minoring in Design and Economics, and was a Caldwell-Fellows Scholar. NCSU is a legacy in our family – my father, mother, uncle, sister, in-laws, and wife all graduated from NC State – so needless to say, I was destined to be a Wolfpack fan! I attended UNC School of Dentistry and graduated with honors in 2006, also receiving the Hillenbrand-Lupton Award for Academic Excellence in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for the graduating class. During school I frequently visited with Dr. Adams, who was also my family’s dentist, and knew then that this is where and with whom I wanted to practice.

    My wife, Taylor, also a Raleigh native, and I married in 2003. We met at Sanderson High School, started dating our senior year and have been together ever since! We have been blessed with two adorable and quite active children: our son, Jennings, and our daughter, Emma. In whatever spare time I might have, I enjoy hanging out with our families, going to the beach, fishing, keeping a project of some sort going, exercising, and watching as much football as I can manage!
