Dr. Connie Feng, DDS
"My parents told me I first started drawing when I was two years old. While growing up, I fell in love with horses and used to draw portraits of other people’s horses for them. I spent countless hours at the drawing table, hoping to bring a smile to the recipient's face. Now I have the privilege of bringing that smile to an even wider audience: Dentistry became a way for me to be artistic and also improve people's quality of life. In today's fast-paced world, I realized that quantity and speed were the norm in most practices. My desire to spend more one-on-one time with patients and do the level of work that I would be proud of led me to start my own practice, where I could live out my vision on a daily basis."
Dr. Feng is also an accomplished artist and photographer. When not working on making teeth beautiful, she spends her free time drawing, painting and taking photos. She also enjoys reading, traveling and spending time with her husband.
Home: Dr. Feng moved from upstate NY to NC in 2004 and is proud to call it her permanent home. She chose to set up her dental practice in Holly Springs because it's a community where she would like to raise her own family one day.
Education: Dr. Feng is a double Tar Heel, having earned both her Bachelor's and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill. Every year, she takes over 100 hours of quality continuing education courses to stay current on the latest technologies and improve her skills.
"I enjoy working in dentistry because I love getting to know patients and helping them achieve their ideal smile. I got interested in dentistry my second year of college when I realized how important a pretty smile is for people's self confidence. I enjoy knowing that I can help someone boost their confidence by helping their smile. I'm very social and enjoy each visit with awesome patients. I look forward to meeting new people everyday."

“Working in dentistry became a dream of mine about 3 years ago when I realized I wanted to work in a field that makes others feel good about themselves and build relationships along the way. Helping others smile makes me smile. Teeth are always the very first thing I notice about people. Building relationships with my patients is my favorite thing about this field and making them smile is even sweeter.”
