Dr. Samir Naik

Born in Bombay, India and after spending his formative years in Columbia, SC, Dr. Samir Naik completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois and his dental training at Northwestern University. After practicing for 15 years in the Washington, DC area, he and his family (Bela and Roan) landed in the Triangle in the summer of 2013 for the next chapter of life. He has come to appreciate not just the lifelong merits of sound dental health but also the overall psychological and social value of comprehensive, modern dentistry.

When not practicing dentistry or being an involved parent, Dr. Naik enjoys the local food and drink scene with friends, is a sports & fitness and current events junkie, and follows his favorite sports teams as closely as possible.


Dr. Annie Chen

Dr. Annie Chen grew up in Chapel Hill. She attended Duke University where she studied Biological Anthropology and Anatomy. After graduation, she achieved her dream of becoming a dentist, earning her DDS at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. She was actively involved in multiple organizations, including serving as the President of the Student Research Group of the American Association of Dental Research. After dental school, she pursued advanced training at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center, where she had the privilege to serve our nation’s veterans. There, she advanced her knowledge and skills in comprehensive dental treatment, including implant dentistry. At the VA, she established her dental philosophy, emphasizing the importance of preventive care to all her patients. As she joins our practice, she aims to not only treat, but also educate her patients, in order to help them achieve optimal oral health! Annie and her husband currently call Durham home. In their spare time, they enjoy playing frisbee, swing dancing, and learning new languages.

Southpoint Family Dentistry has partnered with Partners for Youth Opportunity of Durham to be a job-based/professional mentor and provide paid internships for Durham high school students.
