Dr. Michael D. Gillespie, a Waynesville dentist, is celebrating 20 years in the practice of dentistry in July. A 1994 graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, Gillespie said he returned to the mountains for the relaxed lifestyle and opportunity to raise a family in a safe environment.

“I have been honored to serve the people of Western North Carolina,” he said. “I feel our patients are friends and family, and I am fortunate to have a wonderful group of co-workers who fill our office with laughter.”

Community service has been an important part of his business life. He has served with the Public Art Commission, Downtown Waynesville Association and Haywood Waterways Association. Gillespie and staff have provided care through the North Carolina Baptist Men Mobile Dental Clinic and Haywood Christian Ministries. Additionally, Gillespie has participated in several mission trips to Honduras where he provided dental care.

His office is located at 611 S. Haywood St., Waynesville. Gillespie and his staff provide a full range of dental services including routine restorative treatment, as well as implant, orthodontic and root canal therapy.
