Dr. Rita McGrogan


Dr. Rita McGrogan


Dr. Rita McGrogan spent 3 years at the University of Pittsburgh for her undergraduate studies where she excelled and gained early admittance to dental school.  She then attended the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine where she graduated in the top 10 of her class and received several awards for her research in the mechanisms of tooth eruption. 

Having developed a passion for orthodontics, Dr. McGrogan went on to complete a 3-year orthodontic residency at the University of Maryland while also earning her Master of Science in Oral Biology. She then returned to Pittsburgh, PA where she went on to own her highly successful orthodontic private practice for over 15 years. 

Dr. McGrogan and her husband, Jeff, always knew their futures weren’t tied to Pittsburgh forever and after an extensive search fell in love with the Raleigh area. They and their 5 children (plus 2 dogs and 1 cat) have recently relocated to North Carolina and are thrilled to be here and to join the Lane Team as a visiting NCOSO Orthodontist.

Away from the office, Dr. McGrogan enjoys running, biking, gardening and is trying to become a golfer.  However, her greatest pleasure comes from spending time with her family and cheering them on in their (many) activities! 

Dr. McGrogan is a visiting NC Oral Surgery + Orthodontics (NCOSO) Orthodontist. If you would like to schedule an appointment or learn more about Dr. McGrogan please visit the NCOSO website for more information.
