Love for dentistry: Cosmetic Dentistry of the Carolinas

Sponsored Content

July 2, 2020

You’d be hard pressed to find a reason to question the passion behind Cosmetic Dentistry of the Carolinas. At the helm of the local business is husband-and-wife team Ross Nash and 

Debra Engelhardt-Nash, who have been working in the industry for over 30 years. 

In their practice, Engelhardt-Nash says their team of seven likes to joke that “Debra is our boss, but Ross is our leader.” She handles the day-to-day operations while Nash focuses on cutting-edge dentistry and helping patients through the business’ fee-for-service model. “He’s the futuristic thinker and clinical specialist, and I’m responsible for the objectivity of the business,” Engelhardt-Nash says.

In addition to their practice, both are co-founders of the Nash Institute for Dental Learning in Huntersville and travel worldwide to educate others. Nash is an accredited fellow in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry – a status held only by a small number of dentists worldwide. Engelhardt-Nash serves on the Advisory Board of the American Dental Association, as well as being a board member for two other dental organizations. 

The couple are active in SouthPark Church, but otherwise spend their free time in dentistry. Nash volunteers for the Give Back A Smile program, which gives free dental care to domestic violence victims, and Engelhardt-Nash educates dental practices everywhere on how to spot and treat human trafficking victims that come in. 

“I feel just like I felt when we started working together,” Engelhardt-Nash says. “I’m as happy and excited as I was. He’s as committed as the day he graduated from dental school.”
