Dr. Anita Wells, DDS
Dr. Anita Wells is a North Carolina native who grew up in the Pinehurst area where she developed her passion to become a dentist. Her childhood dentist made such a positive lasting impression that from the time she was 4 years old she used to beg her parents to go to the dentist! He displayed compassion, kindness and commitment to personally knowing her accomplishments, school activities, hopes and dreams all the way through high school. His skill and attention to detail helped to create a beautiful smile that was truly life changing and transformational.
Dr. Wells spent her high school summers observing his artistic skills and his kind personal relationships with patients, and it influenced her to pursue a career in dentistry. She watched so many people change from fearful or shy and lacking confidence to vibrant and excited about their new smile.
Through these experiences, she developed a lasting passion to change people’s lives for the better with this personal connection and the art of creating a beautiful smile.
Dr. Wells is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she completed both her Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry Magna Cum Laude and her Doctor of Dental Surgery, with the highest honors.
She practiced in Chapel Hill prior to starting her own practice in Raleigh. Dr Wells knew the kind of excellence and level of quality she wanted to provide to her patients. She and her partners spent 2 years developing the perfect patient experience prior to opening Renaissance Dental Center in 2009.
