Weaver Dentistry – 100 years of service
In the late 1800’s Dr. Russell Sherrill began cultivating a practice built on high moral standards and a high level of patient care that our patients enjoy still to this day! Dr. Sherrill first opened his doors in downtown Raleigh on Fayetteville Street in the old Banking & Trust Company Building. In 1912 Dr. Sherrill was elected as the President of the North Carolina Dental Society, one of the highest honors in the field of dentistry. After many successful years of serving Raleigh, Dr. Sherrill passed away from Tuberculosis in 1914.
After Dr. Sherrill became ill, he made the decision to bring in a partner with whom he could entrust his practice and his patients with. That trusted colleague was Henry O. Linerberger Sr. who began practicing 1915. Dr. Lineberger’s practice thrived for a couple years until he made the decision to serve his country in World War I. After completing his service, Dr. Lineberger moved his practice to the Odd Fellows Building on Hargett Street. Dr. Henry Lineberger Sr. accomplished a great deal during his career, most notably was founding the UNC Dental School. Only five years after Dr. Lineberger returned from WWI he founded the dental school in Chapel Hill due to the influx of young veterans wanting a career in dentistry.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Henry Lineberger Jr. practiced dentistry and was a member of the first class to graduate from UNC’s School of Dentistry in 1954. Dr. Lineberger Jr. joined his father’s practice and became well known for his compassionate chairside manner and providing the highest level of care throughout the Raleigh area. Dr. Lineberger is well-known for obtaining life-long patients that still to this day actually miss their annual check-ups with him, a feat hard to come by in the dental field!
During the 1960’s Dr. Lineberger Jr. hired our first dental hygienist and brought in a new partner, Dr. Danny Lotz. After a successful collegiate basketball career at UNC and serving our country as a Naval Dentist, Dr. Lotz agreed to join Dr. Lineberger Jr. to create a family-oriented dental practice. Throughout their dental careers, Dr.’s Lineberger and Lotz, both gained notoriety in their professional and personal lives. Dr. Lineberger combined excellent dental care with a compassionate chairside manner that resonates with our patients and our doctors today.
In 1991 Dr. Lineberger brought in Dr. Weaver, a fellow UNC Graduate, to join his practice. Dr. Greg Weaver gained the trust and love of Dr. Lineberger’s life-long patients and staff, making a seamless transition into Weaver Dentistry. His passion for dentistry and his patients has earned Dr. Weaver a prestigious reputation in the Raleigh area. Dr. Weaver is a vested member of the dental community, holding memberships with the ADA, NC Dental Society, Raleigh-Wake County Dental Society, American Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Along with dentistry, Dr. Weaver enjoys spending time with his wife, Susan, their two children and his church family at Hayes Barton United Methodist Church.
Earlier this year in January, Dr. Weaver decided to add to his practice by hiring a fellow UNC-CH and UNC Dental School graduate, Dr. Alan Sykes. (Dr. Weaver and Dr. Sykes were also Fraternity Brothers!) Dr. Sykes has been practicing in Raleigh since 1997 and is ecstatic to now be joining Weaver Dentistry. Dr. Sykes is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying backpacking trips and camping all over the United States! He and his wife Alison have three children who keep them busy and on their toes! Weaver Dentistry has enjoyed a long and successful history and we would love to make you a part of that history!
