I graduated from The Medical University of South Carolina, College of Dental Medicine in 1995. I spent 3 years in the United States Army Dental Corps and was stationed at Fort Campbell, KY and Fort Drum, NY from 1995-1998. I completed my 4 year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at The Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA in 2002. I was in private practice in Florence, SC from 2002-2004. I moved back home in 2004 and started my current private practice.

I have been married for 29 years and have 3 grown children and a grandson.

I am not very happy with this dentist at all I'm in severe pain my mother called to talk to one of the nurses to see if they can change the pain medication they have me on because it's not working the nurses name is TT she got very rude and smart with my mother called my mother a liar talk to my mother like she was nothing but a dog she hung up on my mother told my mother that I wasn't there but just for pain meds and that was a lie I was there to get my mouth mouth worked
I am sorry you were unhappy with my care. I saw you on March 16 and you were in dental pain. I prescribed you antibiotics and pain medication that day and you received surgery with IV anesthesia the next day on March 17 and the procedure went well. When you came in for a follow up on March 27 you mentioned you wanted me to perform another surgery. My staff and I try to perform the best surgery possible and treat patients with compassion and respect. I apologize that we made you unhappy.
