Dr. Chad Paterra completed both undergraduate and dental school at West Virginia University. While in dental school, he was awarded the William Reed Butler Scholarship for excellence in research and was selected to present that research at the American Dental Association’s national meeting in 2012.
Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Paterra completed a one-year residency at the WVU School of Dentistry in the Department of Periodontics. During this time, he learned how to perform advanced dental surgeries, with an emphasis on dental implant placement and restoration. He has been a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Greater Charlotte Seattle Study Club, and the Academy of Osseointegration.
As a child he showed interested in science and healthcare. His favorite activities were always related to art and mechanical work—very hands on—so as a great combination of the two, dentistry was a clear path for him from the start.
He was drawn to the Charlotte area because it has so many lakes and outdoor activities, plus he loves being a short drive away from both the mountains and the beach. He loves working at Reimels because he loves his colleagues and enjoys learning and collaborating with them. Dr. Paterra uses his dental skills for good through the Ada Jenkins Dental Bus, which travels around Charlotte providing free dental work to those who cannot afford to properly maintain their oral health.
