A proud North Carolina native, Dr. Corey W. Wilson was born and raised in Roxboro. His interest in dentistry began at age 14, when his two front teeth were knocked out playing baseball. Even with all the dental surgeries, years of orthodontics, and recovery that followed, he was grateful for the team of dental professionals who took such great care of him. He began to think about how rewarding it must be for them to be able to help people in that way. Even though most adults in his family were teachers, accountants, and small business owners, he knew by the end of high school that he wanted to explore dentistry as a career option.
Dr. Wilson earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1999. During his undergraduate years, he shadowed many dentists and joined the UNC dental study club. After completing the UNC MED/DENT program, he worked as a research assistant at UNC’s dental school from 1999 to 2002 and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the school in 2006. He has been working in private practice ever since and remains dedicated to serving the needs of our awesome community with exceptional, comprehensive dental care for all ages.
Dr. Wilson loves changing lives for the better with cutting-edge procedures, specializing in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, dental implant and third molar surgery, modern orthodontics, and the treatment of sleep apnea and TMJ disorders. He is a member of the following organizations:
- The American Dental Association
- The North Carolina Dental Society
- The Chapel Hill Comprehensive Study Club
Dr. Wilson has earned impressive credentials and recognitions, including:
- A membership and fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists

When he’s not hard at work at Meadowmont Dentistry, this devoted UNC Tarheel basketball and football fan enjoys spending time with his wife, Kelly, and their three children, Hayley, Tristan, and Brennen. He also loves traveling (especially to Disney, the beach, and all his kids’ traveling tournaments), watching movies, eating great steak and seafood, and going back home to Hyco Lake, where his family has cookouts and goes boating and jet-skiing. In addition, he volunteers his time with the Chapel Hill Ronald McDonald House, PORCH, and Young Life and serves as a UNC Perks preferred provider.
