Dr. Michael Woods is an East coast native with Southern roots in Georgia and South Carolina. He is an honors graduate from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. Prior to beginning his career, he worked as a research fellow at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He obtained his dental degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. After earning exceptional scores on the National Dental Board Exam, he was selected to attend an elite three-year Orthodontics Residency at University of California Los Angeles.
Dr. Woods has spent the past four years working as a private practice orthodontic associate in the suburbs of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, while his wife, Dr. Jennifer Bailey-Woods, completed a Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. In 2015, he was voted one of the area’s best orthodontists by members of the local community.
When away from the office, Dr. Woods and his wife are committed to their faith and family. Their two-year-old daughter Grace keeps them busy with activities and potty-training. They are anxiously awaiting the birth of their second child later this year. He and his family selected North Carolina as the perfect place to raise their growing family and serve the local community for years to come.
