Dentistry has been a major part of Dr. Bishop’s life, as she started out as a helper in her father’s practice at the young age of three pouring molds and assisting in the operatories by ten. She opened her current practice in Chapel Hill in 2000. Her affiliations include the American Dental Association, Dental Foundation of NC, NC Dental Society, Association of Women Dentists, American Academy of Facial Esthetics and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Bishop enjoys traveling to the mountains with her husband, Lewis, and their children, Madilyn and Matthew. Her time is spent in the pool as an avid swimmer and on the road as a long distance runner. Simba and Sammi, her beloved Shih Tzus will always be her first “children”.  Both Madilyn and Matthew now have Shih Tzus of their own, Shirley and Malcolm.
