The dental office is located at 430 West 20th Street and is operated by Dr. William A. Setzer. The office offers a range of services, including preventative dentistry, restorative dentistry, and emergency dentistry.

A Lincolnton native, Setzer became interested in dentistry at a young age. After graduating from Lincolnton High School in 2002, he earned bachelor’s degrees in biology and psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

An interest in psychology launched his career with a research team at Carolinas Healthcare System investigating traumatic brain injuries. He also worked in pharmacies at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte and CaroMont Medical Center in Gastonia. Setzer eventually returned to his passion for dentistry, obtaining his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine. He spent his fourth year of dental school in rotations providing care at clinics throughout North Carolina. Setzer opened Setzer Dental in the summer of 2018.

“We have the best staff here of any dental office I’ve ever been in,” Setzer said. “They take great care of our patients, and our patients are second to none.”

Setzer said he chose Newton for his new practice because he and his wife, Kelly, are from this part of the state and wanted a good place to raise their family. The couple currently lives in Denver with their two children, Kate and William.

“We wanted a community similar to our hometowns for our children to grow up in, and Newton fits that perfectly,” Setzer said. “This community allows us to offer personalized dentistry where we can build strong relationships with our patients over the years.”

Mayor Anne P. Stedman welcomed Setzer Dental to the city during the ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 20.

“We’re happy you’re here, and we’re here to support you,” she said. “I wish you all the best as you grow your new practice.”
