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 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!

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.

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!
As the newest member to 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.

Education & Affiliations
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.
I love working with Dr. Barganier and the rest of our team to meet the oral health needs of our patients! I enjoy building trusting relationships with each patient and providing the best care possible. When I'm not working, I love to spend time with my husband, Michael, our daughter Anna Claire, and our son Hudson. I enjoy shopping and boating.
I am from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and am a graduate of Francis Marion University with a B.S. in Science. I love working with three dentists and a dental team that I respect, trust, and have fun with every day. One of the things I enjoy most about working at GCDC is getting to know all of our wonderful patients and helping them overcome dental fears. I enjoy traveling, reading, beach yoga, and spending time with my husband and two children.
I love developing relationships with my patients while taking care of their dental hygiene. When I am not cleaning teeth, I am spending time with my husband, Aaron, and our two kids, Emma Grace and Levi. I also enjoy photographing families and friends over the past few years.
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 loves 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.
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.
I have lived in S.C. since the age of 5 and I am proud to call the Low-country my home. I received my training at Trident Technical College and have been working in the same practice for the past 14 years. I enjoy all aspects of my job as a dental assistant, but the most rewarding thing is sharing my knowledge and compassion with my patients. It gives me great joy to restore confidence and healthy smiles to everyone that comes to see us at Goose Creek Dental Care. I have a loving husband of 23 years and have raised 2 beautiful daughters. I enjoy country living, my animals, and simple family life.

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.

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.

When I'm not at the office, you can find me hanging out with my husband, Dave, and our four children.
Seeing patients walk out with a smile is what excites me most about my job! I like to help ease the transition from anxious to at ease for the patients that are nervous about coming to the dentist. I've been in dentistry for close to 10 years and I can't imagine doing anything else. I've been married for 25 years, have three sons, and one granddaughter. I love spending time with my family and going to Edisto Beach.
I began my career with GCDC in 2014. There is nothing quite like the feeling of helping our patients with their financial needs to attain their beautiful smile or have more confidence in their smile. The best part of my job is that I get to meet so many different people and they become my friend as we go through their journey together. We have the best team of people here at GCDC. We are always eager and willing to help no matter what your dental needs may be. In my spare time, you will find me with my son Logan Reeves and my sweet dog Riley. I love the Carolina Gamecocks and the Dallas Cowboys!
