MUSC dental care to open in growing Summerville, SC

MUSC’s dental and oral health services are coming to the Nexton community. The James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine will open MUSC Dental and Oral Health – Nexton in the second half of 2024.

“Providing oral health services in Summerville aligns with MUSC’s vision of expanding care in South Carolina and exemplifies the college’s commitment to providing our dental students with community-based care opportunities,” said Sarandeep Huja, D.D.S, Ph.D., dean of the College of Dental Medicine.

The new clinic will provide an experience similar to that of a private practice. While dental students complete the majority of their clinical education in the teaching clinics at MUSC’s downtown Charleston campus, students in their final years broaden their knowledge and skills by participating in clinical rotations.

The practice is the second MUSC dental care location off the Charleston peninsula.
