Meet Dr. John Kizer
Dr. John Kizer grew up nearby in Chapel Hill, NC (Go Heels!) He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. Prior to dental school, Dr. Kizer owned a custom woodworking business after being awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree in fine and creative woodworking from Rockingham Community College. Dr. Kizer has always enjoyed art, design, and the dexterity involved in creating one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. It was this passion, coupled with a desire to pursue a career in the health field, that led him to dentistry. Much like his furniture, he understands that no two patients’ needs are the same, each patient is unique and every treatment is patient-specific.
"It wasn't that I chose dentistry, it was more that dentistry chose me. I became inextricably intertwined with the profession as I made my journey through life. I love being able to use the hand skills and the passion for aesthetics that I honed over multiple decades in woodworking to help people achieve their dental needs."
