Meet the Doctor
DR. WILLIAM VIRTUE, DDS, AGD, FIAOMT, DNMI became interested in biological dentistry very early on in my career with the discovery that my aunt and grandmother had suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease. While my grandmother died of this disease before I was born, I witnessed my aunt's suffering and three of her children also passed due to this terrible disease.
Being ever interested in the connection between dentistry and whole-body health, I realized that my Aunt had a mouth full of mercury fillings and I began investigating the connection between this fact and neuromuscular disease.
While doing my research, I quickly realized that both my staff and I work in an extremely mercury rich environment and the decision was made to do everything in my power to change my practice in order to protect my patients, my staff, and myself. As a result, my biological dental practice was born.
I was trained in dentistry at Indiana University and then opened my practice here in beautiful Yadkinville, NC, in 1979. In addition to practicing biocompatible dentistry, I also believe that coming to the dentist office should be a pleasant experience.
I am also continually educating myself in the latest dental therapies and techniques. I have accumulated more than 3000 hours of continuing education through dental courses in order to enhance my philosophy of providing patients with the best, most progressive methods for saving and restoring their teeth and health.
As a family we love snow skiing, boating, and enjoying our free time at our home on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, where we can appreciate the wildlife, mountains, and lake life.
I am also committed to serving both the local community and my professional community. I have served as president of the Forum for Contemporary Dental Esthetics, and am a fellow in the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), as well as past president.
Meet Dr. William Virtue of Virtue Dental Care: I have been a dentist for 33 years here in Yadkinville, North Carolina. Graduated from Indiana University in 1979. I have been involved with bio compatible dentistry for 15 years IAOMT, a president of the organization now and also I teach the fundamentals of biological dentistry to our new members and in order to be accredited in the IOAMT you have to take my course, so that is what we do and we have been practicing biological dentistry, for about 15 years.
