Meet Dr. Katherine Grigg, DDS

Learn Who We Are

  • Katherine Grigg

    Dr. Katherine Grigg is a native North Carolinian. Her parents, grandparents, and great grandparents are all from the Piedmont of NC. She grew up in Charlotte but found the pace of a smaller town more to her liking.

    After graduating from UNC School of Dentistry in Chapel Hill in 2004, Dr. Grigg spent a year working at the Haywood County Health Department caring mainly for underserved children. She then moved to Wilmington and worked in private practice for two years before her love of the mountains and Western North Carolina drew her back to this part of the state. 

    She and her husband Jared live in Morganton on their farm along with their horses, donkeys, dogs, and cats. When not at work, Dr. Grigg loves spending time with her animals, gardening, hiking with her dogs, exploring the restaurants of WNC, traveling, and expanding her skills as an amateur photographer.
