Meet Dr. Len Fiume
Dr. Leonard “Len” Fiume is originally from Charlotte. He attended college at the University of North Carolina and earned both his Doctorate of Dental Medicine and graduate certificate in orthodontics from the College of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

In his spare time, Dr. Fiume enjoys spending time with his family, surfing, paddle boarding, playing guitar, running and traveling. He and his wife Kelly moved to New Bern in 2014 and recently welcomed the newest addition to their family: their son Wesley!
