Honored

Dr. David Mayberry

Dr. David Mayberry

Dr. David Mayberry, a general dentist in Salisbury, was awarded the North Carolina Dental Society’s Citizenship Award at the society’s annual convention at Myrtle Beach in May. The award is presented annually to a dentist who “has rendered outstanding service to his fellow man.”

He was nominated for the award by Dr. Kathleen Boyd, an endodontist in Salisbury.

The commendation reads: “David Mayberry was nominated for this award for his lifelong service to organized dentistry, for exemplary treatment of his own family of patients, for service to the general needs to his community and, most recently, for a momentous effort to care for the dentally underserved population of NC by heading up two NC Mission of Mercy (MOM) clinics in Rowan County and providing dentistry at several others.”

He is currently leading efforts to bring a third MOM clinic to Rowan County next year.

A graduate of Davidson College and the UNC School of Dentistry, Mayberry is an active member of the American Dental Society, the North Carolina Dental Society, the 2nd District Dental Society, and the Rowan County Dental Society. He is also a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry.

The commendation continues: “By example and not by words, Dr. Mayberry shows his peers the importance of being active to support the dental profession. His commitment to continuing the improvement of his skills through continuing education participation, especially at the Pankey Institute, is certainly obvious in the treatment he provides.

“A most significant recommendation for this award is that Mayberry has been active in serving both the dental and non-dental needs of Rowan County for nearly 35 years. He has been a regular volunteer at the Community Care Clinic since the clinic first opened in 2000. He has also volunteered as a dentist on the NC Baptist Men’s Medical Bus, provided dental care for patients referred from the Good Shepherd Clinic before it offered dental treatment, treated patients from the local Family Crisis Center, and treated patients referred from the Jobs for Life Program.”

The award also considers achievements in civic affairs; community and public service; and cultural, humanitarian, and religious activities. Mayberry has been involved in many such activities during his time in Salisbury, including membership and support to organizations such as Rowan Helping Ministries, the American Cancer Society, the Salisbury Kiwanis Club, the American Heart Association, First Presbyterian Church, Piedmont Players, Lee Street Theatre, the Salisbury Symphony, Davidson College, Pfeiffer University, and UNC.
