Dr. Timothy Swing, a native North Carolinian, has been a practicing dentist in his home state since 2008.  Dr. Swing graduated from the University of North Carolina with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a minor in Spanish.  After graduation, he spent a year as a laboratory technician for the UNC Dental Research Center, where he studied the connection between dental diseases and health issues such as diabetes and heart disease.  After his time at the research center, Dr. Swing enrolled at Tufts University Dental School in Boston where he went on to graduate summa cum laude with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree.  He interned in Bath, NY at a veteran's hospital where he worked and lived with his patients.  It was here where he saw first hand how caring for a person's dental needs could improve their quality of life as a whole. 

While in Boston, Dr. Swing met his wife, Trista, and they were married in 2007.  After graduation Dr. Swing was excited to return to the North Carolina coast, as it was where he spent all of his family vacations growing up.  He and his wife are active members of their church, and Dr. Swing enjoys the benefits of coastal living from kayaking and fishing, to attempts at surfing. 
He has volunteered with local mobile dental units and free public oral cancer screenings, and is excited to be a part of the Brush Dental team and their community outreach opportunities.
