Dr. Prusik is a true native of this area having grown up just a few miles down the road in Cary, NC. He attended Green Hope High School where he was recently inducted into the GHHS Athletic Hall of Fame. It was there that he met his future wife, Lauren, and many other friends who currently live in Apex and the surrounding communities.
Dr. Prusik attended UNC Chapel Hill and earned a bachelor’s in biology with minors in chemistry and Spanish before moving on to dental school at UNC Chapel Hill. After achieving his DDS, Dr. Prusik completed a one-year residency program at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center. During residency he received advanced training in all areas of general dentistry including restorative, prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, and implant dentistry. He believes this residency program was one of the best opportunities of his career having trained him to treat complex dental problems and manage patients with challenging medical conditions. It was also a very rewarding experience working with veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country. Dr. Prusik worked in private practice in Durham, NC and Fayetteville, NC prior to opening his Apex location.
Dr. Prusik is a strong believer in community service. He was named a Public Service Scholar during his time at UNC and has participated in many volunteer projects including the Durham Rescue Mission, the Fayetteville Care Clinic, and even a 4-week mission trip to rural Mexico.
Dr. Prusik is a current member of the American Dental Association, North Carolina Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
“I was drawn to dentistry because it allows me to work with my hands and help people live a healthier, happier life. I have always sought to put others first in everything that I do, and I feel truly honored to be able to give back to the community that has given me so much over the years.” – Dr. Prusik
