Meet Us

Dr. Jason Barganier

JasonBarganierMy goal and greatest challenge when it comes to my profession is 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:

Personal Life

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 or 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.

Dr. Emma Bale

I have recently had the opportunity to join the Goose Creek community and provide dental care in the Goose Creek Dental Care office. I have already been welcomed by several patients and the awesome staff, but I look forward to meeting many more of you in the near future!

Here’s some quick information about me so you can get an inside glance. I grew up in a small town in Southern Kentucky. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree at Western Kentucky University, I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville in 2012. I recently moved to Charleston to complete a residency in the Advanced Education of General Dentistry at the Medical University of South Carolina. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the South Carolina Dental Association.

When I’m not working, I love to spend most of my free time hanging out with my husband, Grant and my dog, Carly, as well as other family and friends. I love to be outside riding on the boat or even taking walks on trails and the beach. Trying new restaurants and traveling are also two of my favorite things to do and just recently, a friend got me hooked on a television show called Criminal Minds!

I am extremely excited and anxious to be working with the Goose Creek Dental Care office and look forward to the many opportunities to be a part of your community inside as well as outside of the dental setting. I can’t wait to meet you!

Dr. Trey Clark

As the newest member of The Goose Creek Dental Care team, I am very excited to know that I am working with the friendliest staff and the most skilled and knowledgeable doctors I know. I have enjoyed meeting everyone who has come to see us, and I look forward to being able to take care of the dental needs of this community.

I was born in Southeastern North Carolina and moved to Charleston in 1991 to attend the College of Charleston. In 1995, I graduated CofC with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. I spent nine years in the workforce as an employee of the Medical University of South Carolina obtaining critical skills in Oncology, Adult and Pediatric trauma, and Cardiac rehab. I left MUSC for one of those nine years to work as a medical sales representative servicing Cardiac catheterization labs in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

As I watched the changes taking place in the medical field, I decided to pursue dentistry. Graduating from the College of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2008, I immediately entered the workforce. I obtain and maintain my Continuing Education learning from our profession leaders and professional organizations. I am a member of the South Carolina Dental Association and the Coastal District Dental Society.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and two boys. We stay busy with church, school, and music activities. I am an ASCAP affiliated songwriter, and I have the pleasure of writing and recording music at some of Charleston’s best studios. I also enjoy an active lifestyle with weight training, surfing, and martial arts. I am a Carolina boy… born and raised!!

Dental hygiene is more than just a job for me—it’s about establishing lifelong relationships with my patients. I have a genuine interest in each patient’s life and family. Each hygiene appointment is an event I look forward to! When not at work, I enjoy filling my time with all kinds of creative hobbies, craft projects, and yard work. I love turning the fruits from my trees into jam! “Bored” is not a part of my vocabulary.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I strive to continue Goose Creek Dental Care’s tradition of providing excellent dental care and empowering patients with the information they need to keep it going at home. I focus on helping patients understand how their diet affects their oral health, and how oral health plays an important role in keeping the whole body healthy.

In my free time, I can be found boating with my husband, Lee, our daughters, Lauren, Payton, and Ashton, our son-in-law, JW, our grandson, Wyatt, and of course, our family dog, Piper.

Registered Dental Assistant

I work directly with Dr. Barganier during all different types of procedures. In addition to assisting with fillings, implants, crowns, bridges, and Invisalign®, I make it my mission to give my patients something to smile about. Patients who are apprehensive about dental work often find that I am able to melt their worries away, a talent I love to put to use. Outside of the office, you will likely find me camping, relaxing at the beach, baking, and spending quality time with my husband, Bobby, and our two sons, Robbie and Andrew.

Administrative Assistant

I help coordinate patient visits through communication, scheduling, and filing insurance claims. People tell me my passion for meeting patients’ needs with the best care is evident in every one of my calls, texts, emails, and in-person conversations — I’m so honored. In fact, I prefer to think of my patients as family. When I’m not in the office, you might find me spending time with my family, Adam and Allyssa, reenacting Civil War battles, cheering for the Gamecocks, cooking, or reading. I am also active in the Relay for Life and a member of Eastern Star.
