Dr. Frick attended Davidson College prior to completing dental school and orthodontic specialty training at UNC. He taught in the UNC Department of Orthodontics before entering private practice. He achieved board certification by the American Board of Orthodontics in 1982 and was one of the first 125 orthodontists in the United States to be re-certified by that board in 2003. Dr. Frick is a Diplomate of the American College of Dentists and has been recognized by the North Carolina Dental Society, the American Association of Orthodontists and the North Carolina Association of Orthodontists for his service to the profession. Dr. Frick enjoys practicing orthodontics, seeing his patients at each visit while helping them create a winning “Smile for Life”!
I have been doing orthodontics for a long time and am still excited daily by being immersed in what I think is a great helping profession. My wife, Donna, a recently retired psychiatrist and I are blessed with a son and daughter and two young, wide open grandsons. Outside the office I pursue of range of outdoor sports and activities. My passion for running evolved into a distance cycling phase that is now spent mostly on a stationary bike and other conditioning. I am a lifelong golfer and fisherman (mostly fly now), and I direct a lot of energy to light farming and gardening activities (chickens, dogs, flowers, vegetables). I love seeing things grow and helping people improve and enjoy their quality of life!
