The youngest of three boys, Dr. Wade McPhaul grew up in Charlotte. He attended Charlotte Christian School, where he met his future wife in the seventh grade! Upon graduating from Charlotte Christian School, he attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. During his undergraduate studies, Dr. McPhaul was introduced to dentistry – a career that combined his love of science and God’s creation with his desire to help others through the use of his hands. Because Dr. McPhaul has known Dr. Armstrong since childhood, he served as one of Dr. McPhaul’s earliest mentors.
Dr. McPhaul earned his DDS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he graduated with honors. After graduation he and his wife, who is also a dentist, returned to Charlotte to practice and start a family. Dr. McPhaul joined Charlotte Dentistry as an associate in 2006 and became a partner in the practice in 2012.
Known for his skill, as well as his patient and reassuring manner, Dr. McPhaul’s patients often comment on how gentle, comforting, and genuinely caring he is. One of the most rewarding parts of his job is helping even the most apprehensive patients overcome their fears and anxiety and leave the office feeling comfortable and excited about their dental treatment. Dr. McPhaul believes that the keys to being a great dentist are to listen to his patients’ needs and desires, to care for and serve his patients as if they are his own family members, and to partner with his patients to help them achieve their goals for optimal oral health.
He attends numerous continuing education courses each year in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. He is an active member of:
- American Dental Association
- Academy of General Dentistry
- North Carolina Dental Society
- Charlotte Dental Society
Dr. McPhaul’s relationship with Jesus Christ is the center of his life, work, and home. He and his wife are blessed with two wonderful sons who keep him very busy. He enjoys participating in his church, coaching his children’s sports, playing golf, fishing, and traveling – especially to Disney World, Myrtle Beach, and the North Carolina mountains. He is a fan of Tar Heel sports, Alabama and Panthers football, and Hornets basketball.
