Managing Editor Amanda MacLaren amanda@durhammag.com “I thought I’d have to move to a metropolitan city to find the excitement I was craving, but after I moved to Durham three years ago, I realized that wasn’t true at all. Durham is a city on the rise – there’s a new restaurant or business opening every other day – and yet the now-bustling downtown has kept its historic, Southern charm, which I appreciate.” Creative Director Kevin Brown kevinb@durhammag.com Art Director Sally Scruggs sally@durhammag.com Events & Community Editor Dana Lange dana@durhammag.com Staff Photographer Briana Brough briana@durhammag.com Graphic Designer Christy Wright Contributor Jessie Ammons Interns Claire Mayes, Leah Komada, Abigail Ancherico, Paige Patterson, Kelly Archer ADVERTISING Kem Johnson kem@durhammag.com Ellen Farber ellenfarber@durhammag.com Melissa Crane melissa@chapelhillmagazine.com CORPORATE President/CEO Dan Shannon danshannon@durhammag.com Vice President Ellen Shannon Business Manager Amy Bell Director of Production Hannah Earnhardt “Durham is one of those communities continuously developing thrilling opportunities for its people.

THE RELOCATORS

‘WHY I CHOSE DURHAM’

Three recent transplants explain how they came to be in the Bull City and why they’ve stayed

“Initially, Durham was attractive to us

in large part because we could afford a lot more house and yard without having to sacrifice proximity to town, but that has turned out to be only a small part of what we love about Durham. Durham has so much to offer, and our location is pretty ideal for our family. From our house, we can walk to two parks – one of which has a splash pad, which is awesome in the summer – and several great restaurants (we hit Nanataco at least once a week), plus Bull City Craft, which has classes and drop-in activities for kids. We’re a very short drive from our kids’ wonderful school, Montessori Children’s House of Durham, and the Museum of Life and Science, a lifesaver in the colder months. There seems to be an ever-expanding list of amazing restaurants in town, and we’re close to both DPAC and The Carolina Theatre, which has recently been getting great stand-up comedy. Another huge benefit to me of living in Durham has been greater availability of workspace options for telecommuters. I work remotely, and I find it challenging to work from home when my children are there. Before moving to Durham, I

THE RELOCATORS

Amy Cox, 33, moved to Durham two-and-a-half years ago “after our little house in Carrboro started feeling cramped for our family of four. Friends who had recently moved to Durham had been telling us how much they loved it, and after finding a lovely house in a great neighborhood, we decided to make the move.” The education consultant now lives in the Rockwood neighborhood with her husband, Mike Eisenman, a bartender at West End Wine Bar, and sons Ryder, 6, and Rhys, 3.

spent a lot of time rotating among various coffee shops, which is less than ideal. Once we moved to Durham, I joined Bull City Coworking, and, for me, having a designated place to work away from home has made maintaining a good work/life balance so much easier to achieve. We’ve found that people in Durham really seem to value

living balanced, well-rounded lives, and the culture of the town and the variety of services and activities really support that. Though it’s actually a fairly large and diverse city, it feels like a really inclusive and supportive community that gives it a much more small-town feel, and it’s really that culture that has made it feel like home.”

“T

Crawford Leavoy, 29, grew up in Birmingham and Louisiana and is a graduate of LSU. He worked at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in Baton Rouge and at John Besh’s Restaurant August in New Orleans. A job at Duke University Medical Center brought Crawford and husband, Clayton Alfonso, a physician, to Durham in 2013. They live in the Woodlake area near Southpoint with their three dogs – Carter, Andouille and Jasmine – and cat, Paxton. Crawford is the GM at Piedmont, a contemporary Southern restaurant on Foster Street. 16

he first difference [from New

Orleans] I noticed right away was the friendly nature of the Triangle area. Walking around downtown, walking around the mall, walking around Chapel Hill – it didn’t matter where we went, everyone was just the nicest person and was welcome to have us visiting. There was a sense of community in a way that I had never really seen before; that was a very feel-good moment. My husband matched at Duke [for his residency]. As I learned about Durham and did my own research, I found that things were starting to take place – it had just been named Southern Living’s ‘The South’s Tastiest Town,’ there were a couple announcements about the Liberty Warehouse, Brightleaf Square, reading about DPAC being one of the continual top venues in the nation. To know that I would support these changes as well as have the opportunity for him to work in an institution like Duke, there was no reason to pass that up. It was a career choice we had to make together for him, but I knew I would be OK on my own. Durham offers this beautiful, professional community at this extremely relaxed pace. It is more of a dining community, a healthy community. On a day off, I may start my day running on the American Tobacco Trail to clear my head, but then may go walk around Southpoint or be coaching [the Durham Academy debate team] and then turn around and be at the bar at Nana’s, enjoying a meal but running into my own regulars who are there and having a conversation about what’s next in the community – what have we heard, who have we seen, who’s opening a new restaurant. This whole central network of all these different entities leads to an ability to have a well-rounded life. It’s also a state that [gay couples] can get married in, which isn’t happening in every other state that we’ve lived in. I could see moving around the area, but at this point, I certainly couldn’t see really leaving the area. There are so many great things about to take place in Durham that it’s time to sit here and watch it happen.” u

‘ T H E P L A C E J U S T FA S C I N AT E D M E ’

Sue Miller, 80, moved to the Croasdaile Village retirement

community in 2007 after living in Alaska for 51 years. She initially visited Durham for treatment at the Rice Diet Clinic, which closed in 2012 but reopened as the Rice House Healthcare Program in 2014. She stayed at the Millennium Hotel for nine weeks, and felt in her heart that this is where she needed to be.

have congestive heart failure and suggested I Google a heart disease reversal clinic. I did, and the Rice House popped up. I read a lot about it, and it just seemed like a really great place to go. So, I did. In nine weeks, I lost 36 pounds. Through the weight loss, I was able to get rid of my hypertension and other issues that come with obesity. As I was driving around, the look of the place just fascinated me. I loved the colors of the trees and the flowers were coming out, the lawns were manicured, there was all this brick – it looked like Dallas, Texas, where I’m from, and it felt like home. I asked the Millennium van driver to take me to look at [Croasdaile] because I had looked at retirement homes along the West Coast and they were awfully expensive. I found that this place was in a more affordable range and had several options that I really enjoyed. I did pray about it, and I felt like God was saying this is where I want you to be. I didn’t know this is where I needed to be until several months after I was here, I had to have open-heart surgery. There are only five surgeons in the U.S. that perform the kind I needed, and one is right here – Dr. Donald Glower at Duke. The staff here called EMTs, and when I came back from the hospital, they put me in assisted living [at Croasdaile]. It was so seamless, so if you have any problems, they have a skilled facility to take care of you. I have a real sense of confidence living here.

There are OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) courses for senior adults – I went to a talk last week on fracking – and we have 309 life enrichment activities here at Croasdaile.

Things are snapshot of the local market. selling. There is low inventory right now. Homes go on the market, and people are purchasing quickly if they are priced right. There are a lot of buyers out there that are just waiting [for properties to go on the market]. … Buyers are learning to jump on things because they’ve missed other properties. What draws people to the Durham area? No question, Duke and Research Triangle Park are draws. Schools are drawing people to the market.

Interior designer Heather Garrett bought this loft in the Bullington Warehouse on North Duke Street in 2007 and completely renovated the space. The decor in her living room, pictured here, includes a corner ladder that came from an antique store in High Point and was used in French orchards for apple picking.

Years ago, I sold homes and people had to be in Raleigh. Now it’s funny. They are coming to Durham. They used to say, “No way.” They now say, “We live in Raleigh, but we come to Durham to do everything.” One great thing about Durham is we have such a diverse group of people. Plenty of single people, young families, older families. Plenty of people want to be in a downtown condo. Some people want to be in the suburbs in a neighborhood where the kids can play in the woods. Some people want to be far enough out to not hear anything but only be a 10- to 15-minute drive away from anything. That all depends on the individual buyer. We have them all.

Has Durham completely overcome the recession? How bad did things get in terms of real estate before bouncing back? I’d say we’re not back 100% as far as prices, but we really never had much of a drop in Durham. We didn’t have much

of a bubble. The prices didn’t double or triple in a short time period. They stayed really steady. Other parts of the country had a huge drop. Some areas – like downtown and WattsHillandale and Trinity Park – they didn’t even have a drop in value. It continued to stay steady or increase. There are foreclosures as there are anywhere. Those homes that were foreclosed on have been bought by investors, and they’ve made those neighborhoods better. We’re not too far off from where we were. If anything, we probably are better off. Some of the neighborhoods that were struggling have come back around.

What’s your top tip for someone moving to this area who wants to buy? Where should they begin? Someone really needs to sit down and figure out his or her priorities. How far from work do you want to be? How far from hospitals? What’s most important? What do they do every day? School, work, shop? And then from there start to narrow it down. Durham does have it all – but maybe you want to be closer to family. Realtors can really help narrow it down. Sit down with them, and they’ll ask you the questions

and help you narrow it down to save you a lot of time. Time is valuable. We can set you up on searches to automatically send you properties that are coming on the market [that meet your criteria]. At the end of the day, if you can’t figure it out, then renting is probably not a bad option in the short term. Until you’ve lived here a while and see where you’re spending your time. … We’re here to help. It’s a process, and we know there are many steps. At the end of the day, if you don’t find something right away, rent. Even there, you have to be careful. There are scams. We’ve had people get keys, move in and realize it was a scam. It can be a mess. A Realtor can help with that, too. We’re here to make that process easy, and we’re experts at what we do.

How should someone go about choosing a Realtor? Searching online is one way to go. Talk to a friend. See if they’ve used anyone and if they liked them. Call a few Realtors. Ask how long they’ve been in the area, how long they’ve been in the business and what is their specialty. Tell them about yourself. They might be able to say, “I can refer you to someone who would be perfect for you.” Talk to them. See if they have time for you. See how you interact. It’s a big process. You really get to know the buyers and the sellers. The toughest part of our jobs as Realtors is at the end. We spend all this time with them and we know them. They buy a house – and we still stay in touch, but we’re not going to talk every day. You really get to know them. You want to enjoy who you’re working with. It’s not just about knowing the neighborhoods and how many homes they’ve sold. People open up to us – it’s very personal. What if someone is not sure if they want to live in Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Pittsboro or Raleigh? How would you help them zero in on a smaller area of search? Once you’ve sat down and talked, the Realtor will help narrow it down, and you’ll go out and look at a couple of homes in different areas. And you’ll get a feel. The more you see, the more you can narrow it down. It’s a continual build on figuring it out. A lot of times, you don’t know as a buyer what you want. You may think you know what you want. You think you want an old home, but you end up in new construction. A lot of times it can switch. As a Realtor, you don’t want to be pushy but at the same time you don’t want the buyer to lose the house either. It may take a little time, but we can do it. u

Inventory wise, what is Durham seeing more of? Existing homes or new construction? Singlefamily homes or townhouses/ condos? We’re seeing more existing homes. Typically it’s going to take longer for townhouses and condos to sell than a single-family home. One of the reasons is HOA dues. We’re still seeing some new construction, but it’s not coming quick enough right now. What’s coming up is selling. People prefer new and updated homes. A lot of different projects downtown are under construction. They’ve already pre-sold homes. You have almost a waiting list for some of them. A lot of the apartments being built are for lease.

Is there any other important information about this market that you want to share? If you’re not ready to buy within 30 days, there’s no point in going out and looking. The houses you see will probably sell before you are ready to buy. I had someone call today. She’s moving from Virginia. She said, “I’m not in a hurry. I’m semi-retired. I don’t know where I want to live yet. It may be one or two years.” We can set you up on an online search, but there’s no point looking at properties. … On another note, I started my company 10 years ago and got into the business 14 years ago. But I’ve lived in Durham since I was 11. I’ve seen Durham grow. It’s been fun and amazing to watch. DM

The Next Big Thing Human- and solar-powered cars called ELFs are built right here in Durham. Inventor and local resident Rob Cotter says switching to the cars means fewer tons of CO2 emissions per person per year and increased physical fitness. Pedaling combines with energy harnessed by solar panels on top to power a small motor, which propels the vehicles around town – and in locales as far away as Massachusetts and the Hamptons’ residence of Jerry Seinfeld.

Modern Family Farm Even out of the city, you can find new-wave architecture. The Metheny family built this modular home off U.S. 70, right past the little country store homeowner Vikki’s grandparents used to run. Her husband, Scott, had Handcrafted Homes in Henderson build three boxes, and he and his colleagues at BuildSense connected them, erected the walls and put on the slanted corrugated metal roof. Here, the couple stands outside their home with sons Griffin and Tigh.

Survival Story Chances are you’ll meet the charismatic Fullsteam owner, Sean Lilly Wilson, at his popular brewery on Rigsbee Avenue. Four years since Fullsteam’s inception, Sean has a lot to be thankful for – especially his health. Prior to opening the bar, he received a much-needed kidney transplant from his wife, Carolyn. “I wasn’t a brewery owner who got sick,” he says. “I was sick and then coming out of it gave me renewed hope to chase my dreams.” DURHAM MAGAZINE'S OFFICIAL 2015 VISITORS AND RELOCATION GUIDE

It all has one thing in common: The quality is top-notch, thanks to our winning formula. Incredible farmers plus hugely talented chefs with a real sense of place plus a judicious, refined population of restaurant goers to sustain the industry equals a winning foodie environment. It’s why we’re drawing the attention of national publications on the regular. As good as it already is, our food just keeps getting better. We’ve come so far: Let’s not forget to humbly acknowledge that our zip codes were, just a few decades ago, the lands of greasy spoons and subpar pizza joints before pioneers like Ben and Karen Barker of Magnolia Grill intervened. But the future is looking even brighter as the interest in food grows and as students of cuisine are becoming the ubiquitous masters of it. More people want to farm. More people want to make craft beer, wine and liquor. More people are launching food product lines – from toffee and coffee to peanut butter – all made right here in culinary incubators before being shipped around the world. And driving the entire movement is the fact that more of us want to eat well, whether we define that as organic or biodynamic, rustic or upscale, calorie-conscious or gut-busting. It’s not just the farmers and chefs having a moment – the foodie is in his prime. Each cocktail party’s conversation revolves around food. We discuss food the way we used to chew on the topics of real estate, sports, politics. Sometimes, we have to pinch ourselves: How did this happen? How do we deserve this? We have the gastronomical opportunities of a big city without the insane traffic, exorbitant cost of living, unfriendly population. But brief, unnecessary moments of guilt quickly subside. When we bite into that next perfect morsel – it’s never far away – we are overcome with a single thought: Food this good deserves to be appreciated Don’t overthink it. Just enjoy it. DM

In 2013, Durham was recognized as one of the top 10 up-andcoming cities for entrepreneurs. That same year, seven Durham businesses made it on INC 5000’s list of fastest-growing companies. The number doubled in 2014. Every business that made the cut – ReverbNation, Bronto Software, Appia, Research Square, Scale Finance, WorkSmart and BioAgilytix Labs – was included again, and joined by the likes of Nuventra Pharma Sciences and Two Toasters, the latter of which saw a 579% growth over three years. We’re home to big companies like Merck, Cree, GlaxoSmithKline and IBM, as well as thriving locally owned outfits like Hamilton Hill Jewelry, Jewelsmith, Ninth Street Flowers and Bull City Designs. Durham increasingly is becoming a hotbed of entrepreneurship, too, with startup incubator American Underground – now with two Durham locations, plus one in Raleigh – leading the way. Here’s a closer look at just a few Durham businesses to give you some idea of the diversity and strength of our local economy. u

McKinney COO Joni Madison began her advertising career as a copywriter, but always had an interest in producing film and TV spots. She got the opportunity to do just that with the international advertising agency in 1992. McKinney moved its headquarters from Raleigh to Durham in 2004.

Spoonflower’s headquarters are in a large office park in Research Triangle Park among dozens of other companies. The building’s bland facade is deceiving: Enter, and you’re met with vibrant colors and patterns – chairs upholstered with designs that pop and walls hung with unique tapestries. A massive room takes up the center of the space. Inside, rows of digital textile printers are churning out yard after yard of fabric featuring artwork created by people from all over the world. “There are literally millions of designs on our site,” says Spoonflower co-founder Stephen Fraser. “Hundreds of thousands of those designs are for sale by independent artists. It’s the biggest accumulation of user-generated surface design that has ever existed. It’s as close to a YouTube for fabric as you can get.” It’s as simple as that – the company allows its customers to design and print their own fabric (not to mention gift wrap, wallpaper and decals). Upload any piece of art in a digital format to Spoonflower’s website. Arrange the layout, choose from 13 74

different fabric options and check out. Spoonflower was founded in 2008, just as the economy was crashing. What saved them, Stephen says, is what’s always worked for the company: the enormous community of people who care about making things. McKINNEY

Perhaps no Durham company more fully embodies our creative class than nationally renowned advertising agency McKinney. Its client list includes big-name companies like Travelocity (McKinney came up with the gnome campaign!), Nationwide Insurance, ESPN, Samsung, Sherwin-Williams and many others. But it feels right at home in the comfy confines of downtown Durham in its fantastic, specially designed office space at the American Tobacco Campus. The company was founded in 1969 by UNC-Chapel Hill graduate Chick McKinney, who “didn’t feel he needed to move to one of the traditional ad centers to launch a national agency,”

Giving McKinney a run for its creative-class money is Merge Records. It was founded in 1989 by Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance, two of the four members of seminal rock band Superchunk. Since then it has grown into the home for dozens of groundbreaking artists, including Arcade Fire. In 2011, the band took home Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards, a coup for the little Durham label that could. From their headquarters on Chapel Hill Street, Mac, Laura and other Merge staff make their presence felt in the music scene and Durham’s local culture, raising their families here and supporting local acts and venues. “I feel very cosmopolitan here,” Laura says.

employee volunteerism that have enriched our team, and we hope the community as well.” SALAD E LIA CAFE

A quarter-century of building a restaurant business takes more than hard work and good luck. Just ask the Ghanems. In 1988, Robert, a native of Lebanon, launched Saladelia Cafe on University Drive. But the business really took off when he met his wife, Fida, who’s also from Lebanon, a few years later and coaxed her into joining the business. That’s when, Robert says, “things went on high speed.” By 1996, Saladelia was thriving, and Robert and Fida worked hard both to keep that trend going and to expand the catering business. Fida’s business background came in handy as the couple expanded their reach throughout Durham and, importantly, on Duke University’s campus. In 2006, Saladelia got a contract to set up shop at the Perkins Library on campus. “Robert and I came away from that really celebrating, feeling like we’ve proven our name in the community when Duke Dining comes and knocks on your door,” Fida says. Then, after customers clamored for a downtown location, Saladelia opened up in American Tobacco. Then they acquired Mad Hatter’s Cafe & Bakeshop in 2008, a stone’s throw from Duke’s East Campus. All their baking needs were met there as well, a huge plus. Then came another Saladelia in Hock Plaza in 2009, and yet another at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke in 2013. The Ghanems have expanded the original Saladelia store twice and now employ 80 people. DM

MEET THE SUPERINTENDENT

Letisha Judd took over as principal of Y.E. Smith Elementary School in late 2010. The school has enjoyed rapid progress since then, increasing proficiency on End-of-Grade tests by 16% in just two years.

Dr. Bert L’Homme was sworn in as superintendent of Durham Public Schools in July 2014. His career as an educator began in Washington, D.C., where he served as a special education teacher before moving to North Carolina. After six years as assistant superintendent for academic services with DPS, he served Franklin County Schools as superintendent from 2004 to 2009. Outreach and advocacy have been hallmarks of Dr. L’Homme’s leadership throughout his career, and he joined the staff of the Children’s Defense Fund to become coordinator of the Cradle to Prison Pipeline Campaign in 2009. In July 2010, Dr. L’Homme was named superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., leading 96 schools that served more than 27,000 students. While at the Archdiocese, he transitioned the schools from individual to district-wide accreditation, implemented continuous improvement planning and strengthened teacher professional development. Upon accepting the post as superintendent of Durham Public Schools, Dr. L’Homme pledged to emphasize reading, lower suspension rates and raise graduation rates while preparing students for college, a career and life. Dr. L’Homme holds a Ph.D. in special education/public school administration from the University of Maryland, a M.Ed. in K-12 special education/emotional disturbance from American University, and a B.A. in secondary education/psychology and history from the University of Maryland. Dr. L’Homme and his wife, Margaret, have three daughters and four grandsons.

CITY OF MEDICINE

T

A moniker fit for Durham B Y M AT T D E E S

The gift of Watts Hospital in 1895

from George Washington Watts, one of the founders of the American Tobacco Co., was less enthusiastically received than would be expected today. As Jean Bradley Anderson writes in her authoritative history of Durham County, “At that time many people looked on a hospital as a place to go to die; therefore rejoicing over the gift was somewhat tempered.” What a difference a century makes. By the late 20th century Durham had become a world leader in medical care and research. Nearly one in three people in Durham today works in a health-related field, and there are more than 300 medical companies, diet centers and pharmaceutical research organizations here. Duke University is the main anchor, operating Duke University Hospital, Duke Children’s Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital, Lenox Baker Children’s Hospital and a slew of smaller practices all across the city. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Duke Hospital as the best hospital in North Carolina and the 14th best hospital in the nation

on its 2014-15 Honor Roll. The North Carolina Hospital Association also deemed Duke Hospital’s $256 million in charity care and uncompensated care as the top community benefit to the Triangle region in 2013. In 2012, Duke opened a $235 million, 267,000-squarefoot comprehensive Cancer Center, a state-of-the-art facility that offers the world’s best cancer treatments in addition to amenities that nurture the mind and spirit of patients and families. There’s also the beautifully designed Duke Integrative Medicine facility, a beacon in the growing practice of holistic medicine. The North Carolina Specialty Hospital and the Durham Veterans Administration Hospital also provide great care here. Then there’s Research Triangle Park, nearly all of which

is located in Durham County, which is home to global pharmaceutical companies such as GlaxoSmithKline and Bayer CropScience. Meanwhile, drug giant Merck has a plant in North Durham. Durham also is home to Quintiles, the largest provider of biopharmaceutical services in the world. And the city’s entrepreneurial spirit is advancing health care, led by the likes of up-and-coming companies such as Validic, Argos Therapeutics and TheraSim. Both ambulatory health care services and registered nurses are among the fastest growing industries in Durham, and health care and social assistance jobs are ranked in the top 10 total wage earnings in Durham County at $1.6 billion each year. “City of Medicine,” indeed.

THE HEALER BY AMAN DA MACLAR E N

Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg, 63, studied music in high school but suffered from stage fright. In college, she worked with autistic children and went on to medical school to study psychiatry and work with young autism patients. She enjoyed “the medicine part of med school more than anticipated,” earning her degree from New York Medical College and completing her residency at Upstate Medical Center in 1980. The director there offered Dr. Kurtzberg and her now-husband, Dr. Henry Friedman, a fellowship in pediatric hematologyoncology at Duke, bringing them to Durham. They live in Croasdaile and have two children, Josh, 31, and Sara, 26.

108

Dr. Kurtzberg, the chief of the Division of Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation at Duke, is a pioneer in cord blood stem cell research. She was the first in the country to do a stem cell transplant using umbilical cord cells from a donor unrelated to the recipient. Dr. Kurtzberg is now studying whether these cells, extracted from otherwise discarded tissue after babies are born, can help children with cerebral palsy, sickle cell, cancer and other immune and blood disorders. “We know cord blood can rescue kids from neurologic degeneration and diseases if we transplant early,” she says. “But we also have learned that cells can go to the brain and repair abnormal parts, so we thought maybe we could also use it in brain injury. We’re now developing a program to treat children with brain injuries, either because of premature birth, low oxygen at birth, an accident or a neurodevelopmental disorder like autism.” Dr. Kurtzberg is also the founder and director of the Carolinas Cord Blood Bank, one of the first in the nation to receive FDA approval to market stem cell products. “We’ve changed the world to some degree because a lot of things we’ve developed help thousands of people every year,” Dr. Kurtzberg says. “But for me, it’s not about what we did, it’s about what’s still out there to do. I know patients we can’t help yet, and that’s what keeps me going.” DM

OUR TOP DENTISTS For the fifth straight year,

Durham Magazine commissioned a peer-to-peer survey of the local dental community – from endodontists to prosthodontists. The following rankings are the result. Dentists were asked the telling question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to, other than yourself?” The Durham area is well served by the dental community: Hundreds of dentists, specialists and support professionals have made this home, and the overall quality of dental care in our communities is second to none. What good dentist wouldn’t want to practice here?

ENDODONTICS

A LITTLE BACKGROUND The Top Dentists list for Durham is the result of a rigorous evaluation process consisting of peer-to-peer surveys of area dentists and professionals. This survey was conducted and managed by the nationally recognized third-party firm topDentists LLC of Augusta, Ga. The list is excerpted from the 2014 topDentists list, a database that includes listings for dentists and specialists in the Durham area. The Durham list is based on detailed evaluations of dentists and professionals by their peers. The complete database is available at usatopdentists.com. topDentists management has more than 40 years experience compiling peer-review referral guides in the dental, medical and legal fields. Working from this experience, along with the input of several prominent dentists from throughout the United States, topDentists created a selection process that has earned the respect of the country’s leading dental professionals. For more information call 706-364-0853; write P.O. Box 970, Augusta, Ga., 30903; email info@usatopdentists.com or visit usatopdentists.com.

Weight Loss Surgery Put Rosallene on a Healthier Path

Obesity-related illness runs in Rosallene Massey’s family. She lost her sister to complications from diabetes and high blood pressure, and she feared she was headed in the same direction. With her own diabetes out of control, Massey chose weight loss surgery at Duke. Today, she’s 183 pounds lighter and diabetes-free. Find out if weight loss surgery is the right option for you. Call 888-275-DUKE or visit dukeweightlosssurgery.org.
