map that's mostly dark purple over North Carolina shows dental shortage areas. The shortages are particularly acute for specialty dentists, such as endodontists and oral surgeons.

Data from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration shows where there are dental shortage areas in North Carolina. Darker colors indicate fewer dentists, while lighter colors indicate enough dentists. According to the federal agency, 98 of North Carolina’s 100 counties were designated Dental Health Professional Shortage Areas. Credit: HRSA
