Meet Our Team

Dr. Dustin Prusik

Dr. Dustin Prusik

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

 

Dr. Prusik is a die-hard Tar Heel fan having spent 8 years in school at Chapel Hill.  He did, however, marry a Wolfpack graduate and will forever live in a house divided!  Both Dr. Prusik and Lauren enjoy traveling and exploring the outdoors.  They are proud to call North Carolina home and make a point to enjoy everything this great state has to offer. They have a two-year-old golden retriever named Murphy who loves to swim, meet people, and play with other dogs.  Dr. Prusik and Lauren have attended The Summit Church together since college.

Courtney was born in New Hampshire and moved to North Carolina when she was very young.  She was raised in the Durham area where she attended elementary through high school. After high school she worked at Duke Hospital while pursuing a career in nursing until switching over to the dental hygiene field.  She always loved patient care, but wanted to focus on one area of the body and knew the importance of good oral hygiene. Courtney graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at Wake Technical Community College in 2012.  She enjoys developing relationships with her patients, being able to see them on a regular basis, and helping them reach their overall hygiene goals. After 4 short months of dating and 4 month of engagement, Courtney married the love of her life, John, in October 2015. This summer of 2017 her family grew as they welcomed their sweet daughter, Saylor, into the world.  When not at work, Courtney enjoys hanging out with family and friends, being involved with her church community at the Summit, and most of all being a new mommy and all the joys it brings.
