Dr. Allan Acton, DDS
Dr. Allan Acton opened Cary Family Dental in 2003 and since that time, has become one of the Triangle's most accomplished and trusted dentists. He is a graduate of the Virginia Commonwealth Dental School and completed his advanced dental education residency at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. Dr. Acton completed 216 hours of continued education in a nine-month implant continuum at the Triangle Dental Institute in Durham, NC. His training included lectures, workshops, and one-on-one mentoring on implant surgical placement and restoration, associated bone preservation and ridge augmentation grafting, and connective tissue grafting. He is a graduate of the Engel Institute's guided surgery, hands on training. Dr. Acton graduated with honors from The Hornbrook Group's distinguished esthetic training program which included extensive hands on training in smile design and full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Acton is currently only one of several dentists in the state certified to provide DuraTHIN veneer. Dr. Acton was voted either #1 or #2 by the readers of Cary Magazine in their annual Maggy Awards for the last 7 years. Most recently, Dr. Acton received a Fellowship Award from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). The ICOI was founded in 1972 and has 12,000 members worldwide in 89 countries. It is the world's largest dental implant organization, as well as the world's largest provider of continuing dental implant education and currently has 2,582 active Fellows in the United States. The awarding of Fellowship status is one of the highest honors a professional society, such as the ICOI, can bestow on a dental professional involved in oral implantology. Nominees achieve Fellowship status through their efforts in education, research and actual clinical experiences. Dr. Acton and Cary Family Dental are also committed to their community. Together, they have raised over $80,000 for the Smiles for Life campaign, an annual four-month long campaign sponsored by the Crown Council that raises money to help children facing serious health and educational problems. The practice also provides free dental health presentations to local preschools and elementary schools in order to teach children on the basics of proper dental care. Their proudest accomplishment is their annual Dentistry From the Heart event. On this free day of dentistry they see over 150 patients and perform over $50,000 of free dentistry each year. Dr. Acton is proud of the fact that he graduated 1st in his dental school class….alphabetically. Dr. Acton is happily married and has an adorable daughter and son.
