  • Carolina Periodontics and Endodontics

Age:

30

Name of Practice:

Carolina Periodontics and Endodontics

Specialty:

Endodontist

Education:

DMD, University of Kentucky


Why She Was Nominated

After discovering Rock Hill needed a periodontist and an endodontist, Rachel and her husband opened a practice that saves patients time (and pain) by performing procedures in the same place.

Inspiration

One-stop dentistry, given that she and her husband have two specialties covered. Patients can simply walk across the office for consultations and treatment.

Favorite Part of the Profession

Helping patients in pain. Says her husband: “She takes pride in making even root canals relaxing.”

Practice Philosophy

To provide cutting-edge, evidence-based therapy in a low-anxiety environment.
