Rachel Jewell Swart, DDS

For Dr. Swart, dentistry is a passion and a calling. She started her dental career at an early age working at her neighborhood dental practice as a teenager. It was there that she learned to love interacting with patients, which fueled her desire to become a dental hygienist. After spending 10 years as a hygienist, Dr. Swart took the next natural step, which was to go to dental school. She attended The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. In May of 2013, she graduated receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Dr. Swart is a member of the American Dental Association® and has completed a fellowship in implantology. She is SMART (safe amalgam removal) certified and a participant in the Baby Oral Health Program. In addition, she is also an clear aligners preferred provider. She strives to provide high-quality, compassionate dentistry to her patients in a friendly and relaxed environment. She loves dental cosmetics and places a strong emphasis on holistic dental care and prevention of oral disease.

Dr. Swart was born and raised in northern Virginia. There, she met her husband, Keith, a veteran of the U.S. Army who was stationed at Fort Meyer, Arlington National Cemetery. They moved to North Carolina in 1999 and have called it home since. They have two sons, Kyle and Riley. In her spare time, Dr. Swart enjoys decorating, gardening and boating, as well as her new favorite hobby, playing the violin. Her favorite place to be is at the lake and if it were possible she would practice dentistry on a lake every day at sunset.
