Our Team Apex

Dr. Kevin Atkins, Dentist

Dr. Atkins is a 1992 graduate of UNC School of dentistry after receiving a baccalaureate of science in biology from Wake Forest University.

My wife and I chose Chatham country to build a home because of its rural setting as well as its accessibility to the urban centers in the triangle. We have come to enjoy the lifestyle and the warmth of the people has provided us a special and unique environment in which to raise our three children. It seemed a natural courses of events that I establish another part of my professional practice in the community that we already has such an attachment.

After graduation from UNC, Dr. Atkins joined the US Navy Dental Corps. The navy provided this and more as he had a tour of duty on both coasts and a short-term overseas. The experience hailed in navy dentistry was one of a kind.

When I was searching for a vocation in which to devote my life, I wanted one that would give me a great sense of personal satisfaction, one in which I could genuinely help people and that would challenge me physically as well as mentally. Dentistry has fulfilled all my expectations.

Dr. Avina Adamiyat, Dentist

Dr. Avina Adamiyat grew up in Sweden and attended the College of Charleston as an exchange student.

Living in the Bay Area for the past several years, and serving Palo Alto and Stanford communities allowed her to continue to learn, travel, and appreciate different cultures and customs. Dr. Adamiyat and her family admire nature and they try to spend time together outdoors when possible. Now that they are back on the East Coast they can’t wait to once again explore all the beautiful areas that North Carolina has to offer, and they are grateful to be close to family and friends.
