Drs. Kate Dolin and Adam Spriggs
We are Drs. Kate Dolin and Adam Spriggs, a husband and wife dental team.
Natives of small towns in West Virginia, we met while attending the West Virginia University School of Dentistry. Prior to dental school, we both practiced as dental hygienists; collectively, we have over 20 years experience in the dental field.
Our mission is to provide personalized comprehensive care in a calm and soothing atmosphere. Dental treatment can be complex and often specific to each individual. We believe patient education is a vital aspect of each visit so informed decisions can be made.
We look forward to welcoming you to our dental family!
Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Amanda moved to Raleigh two years ago and now considers this her home. Going into her eighth year in the dental hygiene field, she still loves learning new ways to help patients succeed at improving their oral health.
When she is not spending time with her work family, she enjoys finding new restaurants, shop and explore. She loves to traveling back to Pennsylvania to spend time with family and watch her favorite team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.
A registered dental hygienist for seven years, Kristyn enjoys getting to know all her patients individually and educating them to help achieve a healthy smile. Kristyn attends continuing education courses yearly and is eager to provide high-quality dental care.
When she's not helping our patients, Kristyn enjoys being with her husband and three children. Their favorite activities include hiking, weekend trips to the beach, playing corn hole, and hosting friends for a night by the fire pit. Kristyn is a huge fan of her hometown’s football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
"As I approach my eighth year in dentistry, my passion for helping others continues to grow. It makes my day knowing we have improved our patients smile and made a difference in their everyday life. I look forward to meeting you soon!"
While not at the office, Ellie enjoys reading, cooking, spending time outdoors- especially hiking the mountains of North Carolina.
I love to put smiles on people's faces!

Dentistry has been her career for over 30 years. Tracy graduated from a Certified Dental Assisting school in Lincoln, Rhode Island. She has been Lead and Head assistant in most offices that she have worked, from private practice to large corporations. Tracy recently moved to the Triangle from Callicoon, a small town in upstate New York.
For the past three years, Tracy's path in dentistry has expanded to the front office. Her title has changed from Dental Assistant to The Smile Shop's Treatment Plan Coordinator.
I have enjoyed this new challenge and change of direction. It has been very rewarding expanding my mind and learning another side of dentistry. I enjoy helping and making your dental experience the best ever!
