MUSC dental and oral health center to open in West Ashley

The James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine will begin offering dental and oral health care in West Ashley in August 2022.

Patient appointments: 843-876-9267

The expansion is the first MUSC dental center to open outside downtown Charleston and will provide a wide range of treatments using advanced technologies. Integrating oral health services at the outpatient medical pavilion aligns with MUSC’s vision of expanding care in South Carolina and exemplifies the school’s commitment to providing community-based care opportunities.

Comprehensive dental and oral health care

The new Dental and Oral Health Center at the MUSC West Ashley Medical Pavilion will provide general dentistry and specialty dental services. With four operatories and multiple specialties under one roof, the patient experience will be similar to that of a private practice.

Providers hold doctoral dental degrees and some also hold specialty postdoctoral training. MUSC dental students and residents may observe or assist faculty practitioners in patient care.

Convenience for the West Ashley community

The dental and oral health clinic is located within the MUSC Health West Ashley Medical Pavilion - Epic Center and benefits from ample parking.  

Epic Center, formerly Citadel Mall, is part of revitalization efforts in the West Ashley community. With the addition of dental and oral health services to the site, the MUSC health and wellness district is once again leading the way. MUSC patients can take advantage of co-located services such as primary care, cardiology, surgical subspecialties, physical therapy and more.

For patients and providers

Patients will be able to book appointments by phone at 843-876-9267 and MUSC providers will be able to make referrals by August 2022. This location is in network with BlueCross/BlueShield of South Carolina Dental Network.
