My goal and greatest challenge when it comes to my profession is it to create an office, staff, and experience that patients look forward to revisiting. Through excellence in dentistry, we look to create a home for patients and their dental needs. Every day on the job, I ensure I achieve excellence in everything I do so that I can better benefit my patients. It impresses me that my patients care enough about their health that they are motivated to keep up with it themselves and make my job easy!
My staff and I enjoy spending time with patients so much that it makes work a fun place. Through providing excellent dental care, we have found a way to truly enjoy what we do and who we see. In short, our team rocks! We really enjoy every day and we only ask for the chance to prove it.
Education & Affiliations
I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. When I finished school, I trained in an oral surgery internship at the University of Florida. I also believe continuing education is imperative to my profession. Every year, I get about three times as much continuing education as required by the state.
In addition, I am a member of the following groups:
I grew up in Montgomery, AL, and have been living in Charleston, SC, for the past four years. I have an awesome best friend and wife, Joanna, and two young children. We are very family-centered and enjoy the challenge of creating well-rounded, respectful, and capable children.
My wife and I enjoy food, sports, playing with our kids, church, and music. We have our foot on the gas and we don’t slow down! Whether it’s meeting friends for dinner, watching a game, or teaching our kids about football or whatever they are being taught at church school, we are on the move.
I believe it is important to be an active part of the community. I am an eager dental mission volunteer, which is something I am very passionate about.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Carolina Complete Dental team. My goal is for you to feel comfortable in the dental chair and to help provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your dental concerns. I want you to be happy with your smile and confidence in the care you receive here at CCD. I am grateful to work with such an amazing team and hope you always have an amazing experience when you visit us!
Education & Affiliations
I spent most of my childhood in Alexandria, Virginia, and earned my bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Virginia. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I graduated at the top of my class as a Doctor of Dental Surgery. Post dental school, I moved to Charleston, SC, and completed a residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. I am a proud member of the American Dental Association and South Carolina Dental Association and couldn’t be happier to provide dental care as my vocation here at Carolina Complete Dental.
I have been in the Charleston area since 2015 and love it. My husband, James, and I met in Charleston in 2017 and were married two years later. We adopted a one blue-eyed one brown-eyed Australian Shepherd puppy named Griffin and he is the sweetest dog! On the weekends, I enjoy spending time on Sullivan’s Island and also enjoy walking around and trying new restaurants in downtown Charleston. I love traveling, exploring new places, and trying new things. I’m always looking forward to new experiences, but also love the day to day life here in the Lowcountry!

I am a Southern girl, born right here in the Low Country, with a true passion for people. I love putting a smile on their face, making them laugh, or just making their day a little brighter. Working the front desk allows me to take care of all the patients coming and going on a daily basis, which makes my heart smile. Dr. Barganier has a wonderful group of folks working with him and I am proud to be a part of his team! When I'm not at work, you will find me and my husband, Brett, out on our Harley riding or spending time with family and friends. Between the kids, a grand, and fur babies, I stay busy.
Being a dental assistant is more than just a job for me. It is something I love doing. Making my patients comfortable and relaxed is my main goal and nothing makes me happier than seeing a smile on their face. I received wonderful training at a school in Pennsylvania and have been an assistant for three years. I moved to South Carolina two years ago and have loved every minute of it. I go back to visit family in Pennsylvania, spending time at the pool, beach, or lake, enjoying all the beauty of the Low Country with my boyfriend when I’m not working.
I absolutely love being a dental hygienist! Working with great doctors and coworkers makes it even more enjoyable. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three sweet kiddos. I love the pool, shopping, and eating out.
GCDC is a second home to me. I love our team here and the patients that I have the privilege of building a relationship with.
