A Passion for Helping People
It is truly an honor and blessing to have the privilege to care for my patients. I recognize it takes a great deal of trust, for many people, to place their oral health and smile in my hands. That’s why I strive to establish a connection with each patient, based on open and honest communication.
I want every person to feel comfortable telling me about their goals, as well as any fears they might have. I will listen, without judgment, and work with them to find a care approach they are comfortable with.
I take being a dentist very seriously, because of the levels of trust and responsibility involved. I want to make a positive, lasting difference in the lives of each of my patients: helping them to maintain their teeth for a lifetime, and ensuring they have a confident, beautiful, and healthy smile.
I’m most passionate about educating my patients about the advancements that make dental visits easier, quicker, and painless. There are many techniques and materials that weren’t available even ten years ago, and those have improved the patient experience. I love sharing that with people.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, North Carolina State University
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
Each year I take many hours of continuing dental education. This ensures I remain current with ongoing changes in the field and am able to offer my patients access to the best care options. I have focused a lot on implant dentistry. Other courses have included cosmetic dentistry, root canal therapy, Invisalign training, and complex restorative treatement. I also maintain the following certifications:
- Basic Life Support(CPR)
- American Dental Association
- Academy of General Dentistry
- North Carolina Dental Society
- Raleigh / Wake County Dental Society
In the Community
I’m involved with my local church and its outreach efforts. Over the past couple years I’ve ministered to unwed mothers, prisoners, orphans, and local elementary schools.
Additionally, I’ve served as the part-time staff dentist for the Samaritan Health Center at the Durham Rescue Mission. I also volunteer my time with other dental clinics, including Wake Smiles, Baptist Men’s Bus, and Missions of Mercy. As an office, we host one free dental day a year to serve those without access to care.
Lecturing and Training
When not treating patients, Dr. Brantley enjoys training dentists from all over the country and Canada on how to use the Solea hard and soft tissue laser as well CEREC CAD/CAM dentistry. He lectures in the Wendell Learning Center (located above Wendell Family Dentistry) and periodically throughout the country. He is key opinion leader and speaker for Convergent Dental lasers and Alma lasers.
Outside the Office
I grew up right here in Wendell and recently moved back to the town that helped raise me. My wife Lindsay and I have been married since 2009. We have 2 lovely young daughters, Caroline Grace and Ainsley Rae.
When not working, I’m usually spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy staying fit through working out, running, and swimming. I’m an avid reader, who can sometimes be found gardening and tackling yard projects.
Dr. Christopher Vo was born, raised and educated in Eastern North Carolina. He attended East Carolina University as an EC Scholar where he earned his B.S. in biology. Following graduation he was accepted to UNC’s School of Dentistry where he earned his D.D.S. degree. During dental school Dr. Vo focused on learning the newest dental technologies and applying them in some of most advanced forms of dental treatment. While both in undergrad and dental school, Dr. Vo volunteered with the North Carolina Missions of Mercy and continues to provide dental care to underserved patients across the state. Dr. Vo also volunteers as an adjunct instructor with the UNC School of Dentistry and enjoys working with dental students at these volunteer clinics.
As a dentist, Dr. Vo strongly focuses on two things: patient education and preventive healthcare. While he enjoys helping patients correct their dental problems, he tells folks that the most valuable service that he can offer is to help them avoid dental problems. Achieving that goal starts with helping patients first understand why their natural, healthy teeth are - almost always - better than anything that he can offer as a replacement and then secondly helping patients preserve and protect what they naturally have. The result? Less time drilling and filling. More time enjoying the things that really matter in life.

MARKETING and LECTURING
Combining his interests in dentistry and the visual arts, Dr. Vo works closely with other small business owner dentists helping them establish their practice brands and developing authentic ways to market themselves and their practices. At Wendell Family Dentistry, Dr. Vo directs marketing efforts as well as the practice’s community involvement. Dr. Vo also works closely with Dr. Brantley at the Wendell Learning Center (located above Wendell Family Dentistry) and gives marketing/branding presentations to fellow dentists.
OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Vo enjoys photography and making short films (often times about teeth…). During spring and summer you might find me dripping sweat on the tennis court or at NC’s crystal coast fishing or digging clams with his friends, family and English setter, Ladybird. He understands he looks very young and has been known to joke that he plans "to go back to high school if this whole dentistry thing doesn’t work out”.
Originally from Seoul, South Korea, Dr. Roening graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. She then received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of North Carolina Adams School of Dentistry where she earned the Academy of General Dentistry Award and Derek T. Turner Research Award.
She loves trying new things, including cooking new foods with her husband, and spending time with friends and family. Outside of dentistry, she loves to make pottery and play violin.
Dr. Roening is dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care with kindness, treating everyone who comes into the office as she would her family. Her goal is to give smiles to all of her patients at the end of the day.

I have always thought that the best quality a person has is their smile. That is why I am super excited to have joined this wonderful team of smile makers! Having a background in the medical field, I know how crucial our health and well being can be. Dental care is a very important part of that, so joining a practice that does such a great job at helping people is huge for me! Being on the admin team, I get a chance to talk to a lot of patients and learn about their lives, which makes my job so enjoyable. It also gives me the opportunity to provide a positive experience from the moment they walk into our doors.
Growing up I moved around a few times but finally settled in the Zebulon community with my husband and our fur babies. When I’m not working I enjoy experimental cooking and spending quality time with family and friends, especially outdoors. I also have a great interest in live music, traveling and experiencing new things, portrait photography, riding horses when I get the chance, and spending time with the Lord. I feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity to make a difference in the Wendell community and I look forward to meeting each one of you!
I like building relationships with people during their visits. Everyone has their own stories to share, and I enjoy hearing them. Those conversations create a bond and we often become friends. I’m new to both the dental field and our practice, having become part of our team in 2014. In addition to assisting our doctors when needed, I spend a lot of time interacting with patients. I schedule their visits and handle insurance and personal payments, too.
I live in the Corinth Holder Community with my husband Ricky, daughters Jordan and Morgan, and granddaughter Kamdyn. I enjoy spending my free time with my girls, riding motorcycles with Ricky, and going to the beach.
I feel incredibly blessed to be able to join such an awesome team. I started my dental career in 2007 and have enjoyed every moment of it.

I am so excited to be joining the Wendell Family and Laser Dentistry family. Although I am new to the world of dentistry I have many years experience in the medical field. My experience includes scheduling, billing and working with insurance companies. I enjoyed helping people so much that it lead me to become a certified practitioner in orthotics. Patient satisfaction has always been my main objective and seeing how happy my patients were. The warm and caring atmosphere is what I like most about Wendell Family and Laser Dentistry. Everyone here puts patients first and with such compassion.
I am very blessed to have a large family and when I am not at work I enjoy traveling with my sisters and spending time with all of them.
My dental career started in 2009 after graduating from dental hygiene school at Halifax Community College. I am a firm believer in establishing rapport and trust with my patients. My favorite part of my job is meeting and establishing long-lasting relationships with my patients! I love being able to help my patients improved their oral health, overall health, and life in general!

I am from Nash County, am the oldest of four children, and enjoy the outdoors. I love the water whether it be the lake or the beach, hunting and fishing, and getting together with friends and family for cookouts and such. I am very blessed for all that I have in life and I thank God and give him the glory for all my many blessings!
When turning 16, I was quoted in my local newspaper as saying I wanted to be a dental hygienist. I knew then and have never doubted since that it was the right career path for me. I love what I do.
I worked front desk to assisting where needed prior to graduating with my dental hygiene degree in 2003. I worked in Wendell as hygienist for more than 10 years before my career path took me to Raleigh for a couple years. I learned a lot of valuable information and technology, but always missed the people of Wendell. We are members of Wendell Baptist Church and active in BSF. I kept hearing about a new dentist in Wendell, that brought the technology of Raleigh to a warm inviting atmosphere in Wendell. Everything fell in place for me to become part of Dr. Brantley's vision, which each team member believes in. We truly love our time together and with our patients.
Dentistry is the gateway to total health. We know inflammation plays a big role in most disease processes. Dr. Brantley gives us the tools, time, training and resources to give the best total care to our patients. Treating, preventing gum disease and reducing inflammation has far reaching benefits. We want to get to to know you and be your lifetime dental home.
I do enjoy my time at Wendell Family Dentistry. When I am not at the office, my favorite activity is spending time with my wonderful family I have been so blessed with. There is never a dull moment. My family and I love spending time outdoors, the simple things can be the most fun!
I strongly believe in trusting God’s timing and leaving everything in His hands.. so when I was given the opportunity to join Wendell Family Dentistry I knew I was right where I needed to be! I graduated from Halifax Community College and received my dental hygiene license in 2020. Although my career in dentistry has only begun, I am always striving to be the best provider I can be for my patients. I am eager to continue growing in my career, and I know WFD, the patients, and the entire team, will give me just that and more. I was born and raised in Nash County with my 3 siblings. My parents are originally from Mexico and we love to visit whenever we get the chance. I absolutely love traveling and exploring places I’ve never been to. On my free time, I love to stay busy, whether it’s going to the gym, hanging out with family and friends, and going on many, many Target runs!
I am blessed my career path has led me to Wendell Family Dentistry and to be a part of this wonderful team. I thank God for blessing me with a passion to care for others and work with like minded coworkers with hearts to serve others well. I am looking forward to meeting you and being here for your dental needs.
In 2002, I began my career in dentistry after graduating from Monroe Community College in Carleton, Michigan. In 2005, I moved to the great state of North Carolina. My husband and I built a house in 2017 right here in Wendell and call this place home.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband traveling around the world, laughing a ton, seeing family and friends, being outdoors at the pool or beach, baking sweet treats or doing crafts.
I am honored to be apart of a great team! Dental Assisting is my passion and I enjoy working with patients and helping them improve their smile.

What an exciting part of my life to be working with such an amazing group of people at Wendell Family Dentistry. For twenty five years I’ve learned not only skills for dental care but how to educate my patients on the importance of having good oral health. I enjoy bonding with my patients and understand that coming to see us may not always be easy for them, therefore I keep my heart open to be compassionate to their needs.
I grew up here in Wendell and still live here with my husband Joseph of fifteen years and our two beautiful children James Christian and Poppy Grace. Away from the office I enjoy being with my family and friends. I love spending lots of time at the beach relaxing and enjoying God’s wonderful creation! I look forward to getting to know all of you, thank you for allowing me to care for you and your family.
It was truly a gift from God to be placed at such an amazing office with such a caring team. I am currently at Wake Tech community college in the dental assisting program and have been interning at Wendell family dentistry for almost 6 months. It has been the greatest opportunity to be accepted at the office and taught so many important elements of working together as a team. The doctors here are phenomenal at teaching and explaining every detail about important situations.
Since I have been here, I have met so many wonderful teammates, which I consider family, and some amazing patients which I have learned interesting stories about. It’s not everyday that you find a practice with this much love and compassion for each other and myself. I am blessed beyond measures as I continue my journey here at Wendell family dentistry!
