The award recognizes the practice for its outstanding health standards and practices.

The practice is one of only two medical or dental offices in the state to earn the certification. SHARP is a program that recognizes small and mid-size employers who have developed and maintained effective safety and health programs, setting the benchmark for level of care.

North Carolina Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry attended the ceremony recognizing the practice March 18, 2011, at its downtown Raleigh location.

“It is an honor to be awarded this designation from the state Department of Labor,” said Dr. Williamson.

“My staff and I are proud to achieve and maintain the rigorous standards dictated by the SHARP program. Our efforts provide the highest levels of health and well-being for our patients and for the staff that is dedicated to treating their dental and oral health needs. In addition to knowing that we are dedicated to meeting and exceeding state health and safety expectations, we want our patients to know that we are committed to providing a broad-based scope of dental procedures to ensure the highest level of care. Upon being named as one of the top dental care providers in the country, we felt it was a natural progression to achieve this SHARP distinction in our state and continue to set the standard for excellent dental care.”
