Initially, Dr. Friberg studied Business Management at Oregon State University. After he graduated, he worked for 3 years as vice president of a construction company. Though he found the work enjoyable, he always felt that a career in healthcare would be more fulfilling. Dr. Friberg decided to go back to school to pursue a career in dentistry and gain the opportunity to make a positive impact on peoples’ lives.
He earned his DDS from SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and moved to Wilmington soon after. Now that he has put down roots with his wife and two children, he’s excited to open his own practice and provide patient-focused dental care here in Porters Neck. If you’re looking for a friendly, honest dentist in Wilmington who has a passion for helping patients succeed, Dr. Friberg would love to meet you! When he’s not in the office, you can find him out fishing, at home brewing beer, or spending nice days at the beach with his family.
Dr. Friberg is the proud recipient of StarNews Media and the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce's '40 Under 40' Award!
Dr. Weis was born and raised in North Carolina. He earned his bachelors at Southern Adventist University and DDS at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry and is now happy to be back practicing in his home state. While in school, he met his wife, Amy, who is proudly serving as a US Navy Dentist at Camp Lejeune.
Dr. Weis chose to pursue dentistry as his way to help others. His goal is to give each patient a comfortable and relaxed dental experience. His treatment planning philosophy is simple: he does for his patients what he would do for his family. He is a firm believer in conservative and preventative dentistry and values open communication and transparency with his patients.
When not practicing dentistry, you can find Dr. Weis golfing, skiing, or adventuring with his wife and their little pups, Carabelli and Gracie.
