The NewStart Denture + Implant Partners Team

Dr. Gray and Dr. Scurria of newstart denture and implant partners

Dr. Mark Scurria, DDS

Dr. Mark Scurria is a prosthodontist specializing in finding solutions for patients in need of complex restoration, denture, or implant care. Originally from Pennsylvania and Ohio, Dr. Scurria has lived in North Carolina since high school and earned his undergraduate and DDS degrees from the University of North Carolina. After dental school, he went on to a VA general practice residency in San Antonio and then earned his prosthodontic specialty certification at the VAMC in Houston and the University of Texas Dental Branch.

Being a proud North Carolinian and Tar Heel fan, after specialty training, Dr. Scurria was pleased to join the faculty at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry and lead the denture curriculum for seven years prior to entering private practice. Dr. Scurria left the university as a tenured associate professor with numerous notable research and scholarly publications to his credit.

When not in the office, Dr. Scurria enjoys spending time with his wife, Amy, their teenage son and daughter, and their oldest daughter, also a UNC alum, who works in advertising in New York City. They are a traveling family that has enjoyed houseboat vacations in Canada, France, Ireland, and the Netherlands.

One thing is for sure: if you want an expert in “denture and implant dentistry,” you’ve found him. Dr. Scurria has been providing digital dentures since 2015 and implant restorations since his first day in VA residency. He is an adjunct associate professor at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry and is the board chair for a new non-profit clinic being built in Durham, Local Start Dental, which is dedicated to providing denture and dental implant care for historically underserved patients and veterans.

“An outstanding patient experience is the most important thing for Dr. Scurria. An appointment with him and his team of experts will change your life—and your smile—forever.”

“NewStart Denture + Implant was by far the best dental experience I’ve ever had. The office is beautiful and super clean. Every staff member was very knowledgeable and friendly as well. My scheduled appointment went seamlessly and finished in a timely manner.”

Dr. Bruce Gray, DDS

Patients often say that to know Dr. Bruce Gray is to love him! Dr. Gray is a North Carolina native who has been practicing denture-focused dentistry for over 30 years. He is a graduate of North Carolina State University, where he received his bachelor’s degree, and he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

When Dr. Gray isn’t in the office transforming smiles, you may find him golfing, kayaking, grilling, or even coaching recreational sports. He’s also a family man and active in his community of Wendell, NC. He and his wife Virginia have spent many years in Wendell raising their two now-grown sons, and Virginia happens to be the mayor!

Dr. Gray is passionate about providing a service to patients who need it the most. Many people consider Dr. Gray to be a “denture expert.” He has spent three decades perfecting the process to deliver beautiful smiles for individuals who are missing many or all of their teeth, and his ultimate goal is to restore their confidence and get them back to normal function.

Dr. Gray is a compassionate dentist, a community leader, and an educator serving up-and-coming dentists as an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the UNC Adams School of Dentistry.

Nothing makes Dr. Gray happier than restoring beautiful smiles—never more meaningful than when he hands his patients a mirror, they see their new smile, and they start shedding tears of joy. He’s truly committed to providing life-changing dental care to every patient he meets.

“A class act. I had a great experience with Dr. Gray and the staff at NewStart Denture + Implant Partners. No vague language, no BS, just a straightforward assurance they would do right by me. With helpful staff, the right attitude, and quality care—I’ll be back!”
