Thank you for such a lovely welcome!

Thank you to all our many, many patients for giving us such a warm welcome! These past two months have been great. I truly appreciate everyone’s kind words, gifts, and outstanding reviews. We come with a motto that says “We Treat People, Not Teeth,” which is indicative of how we approach patient care. We strive to provide our patients with individualized dental care. God made us so unique a cookie cutter approach can’t be used. We aim to do high quality dentistry, by caring for every individual that walks through the doors. We work to always give you a warm friendly welcome, address all your needs and concerns, answer your questions, and make you¬†comfortable while you are here.

The staff has been so wonderful in welcoming Tabitha and I! We are all enjoying getting to know each other. The staff has also worked with Martine and Erica (from our Biltmore location) to get to know me and my quirks.

I am excited about what the future holds and look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

Introducing Dr. Dollinger

Dear Friends,
Since opening McChristian Dental in August 2012, I have been hoping to find a like minded, highly skilled dentist to join my practice. Therefore I am thrilled to announce Dr. Eric Dollinger will be joining McChristian Dental as of July 5th, 2016. We share the same philosophy of providing quality dentistry with the best interest of our patient as our top priority. He is a dentist of high integrity who seeks to treat people, not just teeth. I think you will be impressed, as I have been, with his concern for your overall health and comfort.

A native of Western North Carolina, Dr. Dollinger graduated Magna cum laude from UNC Asheville with a degree in biology. He then attended UNC Chapel Hill School of Dentistry where he earned his Doctor of Dental S
urgery Degree, with honors. Dr. Dollinger has been practicing dentistry for 13 years in Asheville. He is also currently the North Carolina Dental Society’s First District President. As an avid learner, he actively pursues continuing education in the fields of preventative, restorative, and implant dentistry. He is experienced, energetic, loves people, and enjoys dentistry.

He and his wife, Tabitha, have been married for 18 years. They have two sons, Noah and Jason. Dr. Dollinger is very active in his church and enjoys working with the youth. Living in Western North Carolina and serving our community are two areas that he and Tabitha are passionate about.



On a personal note, Dr. Dollinger’s purchase of the practice will allow Ann and me to work less, have more time for our grandchildren, and pursue the kind of traveling our patients have done! Your stories and adventures have inspired and motivated us. I will be working reduced hours over the coming months, however, I plan to continue working on a limited basis over the next year or so.

I have been blessed to already work with a competent and compassionate team, and am happy to add a skilled and caring dentist in Dr. Dollinger. It is my sincerest wish that you welcome Dr. Dollinger as we continue providing Patient-centereed / Family-oriented / Quality-focused dental care to our patients.

Thank you for your support and friendship over the years. As always, if you have any questions during this transition, please feel free to call!

Sincerely, Dr. Mac
