Meet Dr. Chris Gudger

Raleigh’s Top-Rated Dentist, Focused on Implant, Sedation, and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Chris Gudger 


Dr. Chris Gudger, a second-generation dentist, has been practicing dentistry for nearly 20 years. He earned his doctorate from the UNC-CH Adams School of Dentistry, and each year, he furthers his education by studying advanced dentistry with the nation’s top clinicians. Included in his studies are specialized courses in dental implants, sedation dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. The minimum continuing education requirement for dentists in NC is 15 hours and Dr. Gudger averages over 100 every year. Lifetime Family Dental even creates their own aligners in house which allows cost savings to patients and are of equal quality to brand name like "Invisalign®". Even more important than his education or his clinical skills, he’s dedicated to providing personalized treatment to make each patient feel like part of our family.

Lifetime Family Dentistry has some of the latest technology in dentistry available to provide you with the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Chris Gudger’s office is one of the few offices around which can make in-house same-day esthetic zirconia crowns which are the strongest on the market today. The office also has 3-D imaging for the most precise restorations, IV or nitrous sedation for nervous patients, and complete care in one location.
Our Sprint Ray Printer has the ability to fabricate high quality night guards and surgical guides in house. All of our implants are placed using surgical guides which leads to higher quality dental implant placements.

When not caring for your needs, Dr. Chris Gudger loves spending time with his family, volunteering in community activities, and fishing.
