Dr. Swords' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Swords "I was fortunate growing up to have had a great dentist who made sure I never had a problem with anxiety during treatment. When I started my own practice, I knew I wanted to give my patients the same relaxing environment. Many people have had bad dental experiences, so my staff and I strive to make it as easy as possible for everyone who visits our office.Swords Family Dental Care Offers On Time Appointments. Education After graduating from high school, I joined the U.S. Air Force where I had the opportunity to learn about dentistry as a dental assistant. During my time in the Air Force, I took two years of night classes that allowed me to complete my undergraduate education after two more years at the University of Georgia. I then achieved my Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree at theMedical College of Georgia. Continuing Education I am a regular participant with the Rivertown/Seattle Study Club that meets monthly to discuss the latest advances in dental care. I also keep my staff and myself up-to-date on new technology and fully certified in Invisalign®. Professional Associations American Dental Association Georgia Dental Association My Team My staff is wonderful at making what could be a very stressful experience so much better than what patients think possible. From the time patients make their first calls until the time they walk out the door, everyone here strives for excellence every step of the way. We make this possible by continuing to improve our clinical excellence through advanced education courses, as well as strengthening our teamwork through staff retreats. Outside the Office I grew up in Blakely, Georgia, and now make my home in Midland, just north of Columbus. My wife, Lacy, and I have two kids, Halee and Brock. We are a tennis-playing family and I personally also enjoy spending time on the golf course, "huntin', fishin' and lovin' everyday". We love to travel as a family and we are very active at Cascade Hills Church."
