There, he developed advanced techniques and gained experience in treating medically complex patients in a hospital setting.

Dr. Woll moved to Raleigh in 2016 and started working as an associate at Wells Family Dentistry. After 3 years of developing a trusting relationship with patients, and having similar philosophies, he became a partner with Dr. Wells. He is proud to be a partner in a community based dental practice that allows patients to be themselves and not hate coming to the dentist!

Through extensive continuing education, Dr Woll has also earned Fellowship status in The International Congress of Oral Implantologists (FICOI), as well as a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD).

The awarding of Fellowship status is an honor which the ICOI gives to professionals who have gained extensive knowledge and experience in the world of implant dentistry, as it relates to implant placement, bone grafting, and prosthetics. The AGD awards Fellowship status to members who have demonstrated their knowledge of a vast array of subjects related to general dentistry.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Woll loves to spend time with his family, including his wife, Dr. Lauren Woll, and his daughter, Isabella. The Drs. Woll met while attending dental school in Baltimore, and were finally married in 2018. In October 2019, they welcomed Isabella to their family, and could not be happier! He enjoys traveling around the world, playing basketball and golf, hiking, cooking up gourmet meals, and eating at all the local spots around Raleigh. He is very health conscious, although doesn’t forget to enjoy life with some delicious food and company on a weekly basis. You just might run into him around town!
