Clay Sanders D.D.S.

I genuinely enjoy what I do as a dentist. I feel so honored to know that over the years many patients and families have come to trust our team to provide them with their oral health care. Our entire team treasures the long-term and new relationships we have formed over the years, and we look forward to finding new ways of providing the highest quality care in unique ways that meet our patients’ needs! My team and I work hard to treat our patients with the care and respect they deserve, while delivering treatments and educating our patients in ways that are effective and relatable. We believe that dentistry should be fun, and we are committed to making sure that our patients stay smiling from the first moment they enter our practice!


Education is the foundation for success, and I feel that the training and experience I received while in school have helped me become successful in my profession throughout the years.

  • Undergraduate degree – Duke University
  • Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Dental School

Continuing Education

Dentistry is constantly changing, and in order to keep up with the advances being made, I feel that it is important for me to continue my education. By participating in continuing education courses throughout the year I am able to provide my patients with the latest treatments and techniques designed for better efficiency and comfort. In addition to completing numerous continuing education credits, I also maintain several professional memberships and study clubs, including the:

  • American Dental Association
  • Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry
  • Seattle Study Club

Outside of the Practice

I am originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, and relocated to Hendersonville 15 years ago. My wife and I have four wonderful children, three horses, two dogs, two goats, and one llama! When I'm not at the practice, I enjoy trail running through the Pisgah Forest, road biking and mountain biking, and playing the classical and acoustic guitars. In my younger years I enjoyed rock climbing, scuba diving, skydiving, and spelunking, and I have many interesting stories I can share with you at your appointments! I am also very involved with Grace Community Church, and for over 15 years I have often volunteered my time teaching, going on missions, and being involved in various leadership opportunities.
