Dr. Sabine Schtakleff
I am thankful to be in a profession where I get to see the direct and immediate impact of my work, and am able to improve the lives of so many. A healthy mouth and a beautiful, confident smile are my goals for each patient at Prime Family Dental.
I love the relationships that develop with each of my patients. I enjoy hearing about a person’s life, hobbies, accomplishments, and families. Because this is a family-centered practice, I care for patients of all ages. It’s fun to get to know a child at their first visit, making sure their experience is a positive one. It’s just as fulfilling to be caring for an older patient, restoring function and giving them the ability to smile comfortably and confidently.
I’ve been involved in dentistry for over ten years, first in Dental Assisting, then in obtaining my Doctor of Dental surgery degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My work doesn’t feel like “work” to me: I spend my days helping remarkable people improve their oral and overall health, along with their smiles. What could be better?
Dr. Adrienne Verga
I knew early in life, through experience with family members in the dental field, that dentistry would be my profession of choice. Not only does it so closely align with my meticulous and caring nature, but it also utilizes the perfect combination of art and science to treat patients’ individual dental needs.
I studied at Hofstra University in New York and graduated with honors in 2000, receiving a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology with minor concentrations in Chemistry and Fine Arts. I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery license and graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry in 2004.
During my time in Chapel Hill, I fell in love with the area and decided to make North Carolina my permanent home. My parents and three brothers now reside in North Carolina as well. I enjoy painting, cooking, hiking, working out, traveling and spending quality time with my family.
I have over 15 years of experience as a general dentist, certified in Invisalign, and an active member of the American Dental Association and North Carolina Dental Society. I am thrilled to join Prime Family Dental and am available to address any dental concerns you may have!
Patient Care Coordinator
I love helping patients complete a goal they’ve set for themselves. It’s a joy to see someone thrilled with their finished treatment: those happy smiles make my day! I enjoy assisting a patient with the financial part of treatment and ensuring they get the most from their insurance. I also make scheduling easy, answer our phones, and help patients understand treatments and care options. When I’m needed, I assist Dr. Schtakleff with sterilization and dental procedures. I’m here to help, with whatever is needed. Please don’t be afraid to ask!
I was born here in North Carolina and grew up in Raleigh. I’m married and have two kids as well as one lovely granddaughter. When I’m not working, I love spending time with friends and family, especially when we’re all enjoying the outdoors.
