University Dental Associates was first established in 1997 as the clinical component to the Department of Dentistry at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. As a part of a large academic medical center, the group has been immersed in the rapidly evolving transformation of health care, positioning them for continued success through growth and innovation. Over the past 21 years, UDA has grown to more than 20 locations across North Carolina.
