About Us


Steven Doering, DMD

Growing up, Dr. Doering always enjoyed fixing things and working with his hands. After studying biology in college and shadowing different healthcare practitioners, Dr. Doering realized that dentistry would combine his passion for fixing things and his love for science. One of Dr. Doering’s favorite parts of dentistry is that no mouth is the same, and each case offers variation.

Dr. Doering earned his DMD from Midwestern University, and he’s passionate about education and helping his patients prevent dental health issues. You’re in good hands with Dr. Doering, and his personable, calming demeanor will ensure that you’ll leave our office with a smile. If you’re looking for a friendly dentist in Kill Devil Hills, give us a call today!


Mark Bueker, DDS

Dr. Bueker is an Ohio native who grew up in Barberton and attended the Ohio State University for his undergraduate and graduate degrees. He and his wife enjoy sailing the Outer Banks and spending time with their daughter, Devin.

"Dr. Doering is the most caring dentist I have ever met. The staff are all amazing to work with. The 2 women at the front desk are a joy to associate with - very friendly! I definitely without a doubt highly recommend them, hands down."

Norman H.

“After two very successful procedures with Drs. Budde and Doering, I am extremely satisfied with the professional and respectful service I received. It's all about fixing my teeth. Thanks.”

John s.

“Had a good experience. They listened to my concerns and gave me the treatment that I needed to keep my mouth healthy. I will be back again for regular cleanings and maybe avoid some of the repairs I just had to have in the future.”
