About Your Dentist
A Durham native, Dr. Chris Claypoole grew up around dentistry. His father, William “Bill” H. Claypoole, DMD (pictured below with Dr. Claypoole), a now retired orthodontist, taught him lifelong lessons that Dr. Claypoole carries over into his own practice. He has a vision to provide patients with a uniquely positive dental experience. He says, "I always give my patients my very best effort and truly want to help each person that sits in the dental chair. I want to bridge the gap for people who know they need to go to the dentist but are reluctant to make that first appointment. When patients come to All People Dentistry, our team makes them feel comfortable and accepted, no matter their financial situation or the condition of their teeth."
Educated at UNC, Dr. Claypoole has been practicing since 1999 and strives to stay at the forefront of modern dental care practices. Throughout his career, he has had opportunities to work across North Carolina serving the dental needs of various populations and diverse communities. His broad range of experience has given him insight into patient needs and expectations, and he understands how to give confidence to the patient and alleviate any concerns.
In addition to his father, Dr. Claypoole was also influenced by others in his young life. Morris Griffin, DDS (pictured below with his wife, Dr. Claypoole’s mother, Kathy Griffin), a now retired dentist from Durham, NC, was Dr. Claypoole’s childhood dentist and family friend. He is a very respectable man and was a well-accomplished dentist during his 40+ years of service to the community.
