Dr. Ray and her husband were both raised in western North Carolina and married there in 1977. They spent their young adult years in Lexington, Ky where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Kentucky in 1988.
Returning to North Carolina, and residing in Durham, Dr. Ray continued her postdoctoral training as a General Practice Resident at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the UNC School of Medicine. The two year, hospital based residency solidified her knowledge of care for the medically compromised.
In December 1990, Dr. Ray opened her private practice in Durham, North Carolina in the Rockwood Building on University Drive. She recently relocated the practice to 3310 University Drive, one mile from the original office.
Dr. and Mr. Ray reside in Hillsborough where they raised their son Orion, a 2015 graduate of Hampden-Sydney College. Free time finds her enjoying the company of their two yellow labs Jim and Sadie. She also dabbles in gardening and treasures her vacation days with family at Emerald Isle, North Carolina. Her admitted weakness and pleasure is collecting tableware, as well as cookbooks, many of which are displayed, in her office, for your enjoyment.
