We are welcoming Dr. Minka Hotic as the newest member and owner of Dentistry of Uptown Charlotte!

Her Mission

Like many, Dr. Hotic did not enjoy going to the dentists and for this reason she has made it her mission to change the perception of dentistry. Our goal is to educate and empower you to make the best possible decisions when it comes to your general and dental health. We want to make it a fun and comfortable patient experience. Gone are the days of not loving to visit the dentist. It’s safe to say Dr. Hotic is thrilled to be back in Charlotte using the latest technology and highest-quality materials to provide you with the best dental care.

“I knew that dentistry was my calling after volunteering at a dental clinic in Maputo, Mozambique. Witnessing firsthand the impact dentistry could have on ones life by transforming a smile confirmed my calling.”

The Best Preparation

In December of 2006, Dr. Hotic graduated from Winthrop University in South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After several years conducing research at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA and working with businesses for Apple Inc, she went on to gain her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of North Carolina Adam’s School of Dentistry in Chapel Hill, NC.

While in school, Dr. Hotic was awarded the prestigious Albert Schweitzer Fellowship for her project on providing dental care to underserved children. Dr. Hotic held leadership roles on many committees and on multiple boards however, most of her focus was on providing dental community service for which she was awarded the Marvin J. Block Community Dentistry Achievement Award. Post-grad, Dr. Minka still continues to volunteer at Wake Smiles dental clinic and the NC Mission of Mercy clinics. She often works with UNC Dental students as an Adjunct Faculty during the DYOR Refugee Clinics which she co-founded while in dental school.

“Prior to joining Dentistry of Uptown Charlotte, I worked in a private and corporate dental practice setting. These past experiences allowed me to expand my knowledge and provide me with the ability to offer the best possible care. I focus on creating a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile.
