Hey Y’all

Hillsborough’s Dynamic Duo

The doctors met while attending dental school at the University of North Carolina and it was friends-at-first-sight. During school, they were both selected to participate on a dental mission trip to Mexico which truly cemented the fact that they are the perfect pair (besides a few days during basketball season)! And like all legendary duos, they’ve been inseparable ever since!

Dr. Caroline Latta

Having grown up in Hillsborough, Dr. Latta couldn’t think of anywhere better to start a dental practice! She completed her undergraduate studies in Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University and then made the long trek 8 miles down the road to attend dental school at UNC. After obtaining her DDS degree, Dr. Latta moved to Portland, Oregon to complete a 1-year general practice residency at the Veterans Affairs hospital expanding her skills while treating former military members. While the Pacific Northwest is gorgeous, North Carolina was calling her home and she has been practicing in the Triangle ever since!
 
When not at the office, Dr. Latta can be found exploring everything the Triangle has to offer with her partner Kyle. They currently live in Carrboro with their frisbee-obsessed black lab, Kodi, and two mischievous cats, Maverick and Ragnar, who were definitely dogs in their past life. Dr. Latta also has a knack for puzzles, baking, and hand-lettering.
 
Dr. Latta has many fond memories of her hometown from Hog Day to adventures at Camp Chestnut Ridge, eating at the Colonial Inn to ice skating (somewhat poorly) at the Sportsplex. She has enjoyed seeing the influx of new local businesses and restaurants to Hillsborough and is excited to become an integral part of the local community! These days you’ll likely find her walking along the Riverwalk, downing some food at Hillsborough BBQ, or catching a beautiful sunset at Maple View (okay, she’s there for the ice cream too…).

Dr. Sharon Lau

Dr. Lau grew up in the not-so-little-anymore town of Florence, SC before attending UNC for her undergraduate studies in Biology. She loved the campus so much that she signed up for four more years at the dental school – go heels! After graduation, she moved to Hillsborough with her husband, Isaac, to escape the hustle and bustle of Chapel Hill and to return to small-town living. Though she has enjoyed working as an associate around the Triangle, she is excited to plant her permanent roots in Hillsborough and make a lasting positive impact on her community!
 
Aside from teeth, Dr. Lau really likes horses…like a lot. She and her mare, Scarlett, are avid eventers and if she’s not at the office creating beautiful smiles, she’s probably out riding and bribing her husband, Isaac, to take pictures for her Instagram. They currently live in Cedar Grove with the rest of their four-legged children: an adventure-loving border collie (Ruby) and their four silly, quirky kitties (Abigail, Simon, Zola & Cleo).
 
The Laus are healthily obsessed with all things local and love exploring the area! You can often catch them getting drinks at Botanist & Barrel, smashing some wings at the Nickel, or grabbing coffee at Cup A Joe.

Be sure to say hi the next time you call or stop by!
