Dr. Cynthia N. Elderkin, DDS
Dr. Cynthia (Cindy) Elderkin earned her B.S. degree in Zoology from North Carolina State University in 1983, completing her degree in three years. In 1987, she graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and was chosen for the GPR (General Practice Residency) program there.
Dr. Elderkin chose, however, to return to her hometown of Raleigh to join a general dental practice and begin her life-long dream of becoming a dentist. She established her own general dental practice in 1989 and has enjoyed not only assisting patients with their dental needs but also getting to know each patient as an individual.
Dr. Elderkin has been married to her high school sweetheart, Steve, for thirty years and has two wonderful children and two fabulous dogs. In her spare time, Dr. Elderkin enjoys reading, quilting, stained glass work, making Chrismons, cooking and involvement with her church. She teaches Sunday school and has served as a youth leader. Dr. Elderkin has been to Bolivia three times with dental/medical missions, where she loved treating patients and practicing her Spanish.
Dr. Elderkin is an active member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, the Raleigh/Wake County Dental Society and a local study club composed of accomplished specialists in the dental field.
