Thomas S. Davant, VI, DMD, MS

Thomas S. Davant, VI, DMD, MS, has been practicing Orthodontics in Columbia and Camden for 32 years. Raised in Northeast Columbia, Dr. Davant attended Richland District 2 schools, graduating from Spring Valley in 1981, before attending USC, MUSC, then receiving his master’s degree from Northwestern University, graduating in 1990. He returned to his roots upon graduation, starting in downtown Columbia, before opening his present location in Northeast Columbia.
Since his early days of practicing, Dr. Davant has seen many changes in the Orthodontic field. “The basics are still relatively the same, but there have been many changes that have made the overall experience better for the patient.” The digital world is here, and Orthodontics has really embraced it, from digital X-rays to digital scanners. “We have the latest technology in digital scanners, which make taking those gooey impressions that everyone hates obsolete.
“Another big advance in the field is the use of clear tray aligners where teeth are being moved without the usual fixed metal or ceramic brackets and wires. Invisalign, to me, is the best treatment choice, and I’ve done a ton of it.”
Services provided at Family Orthodontics include fixed orthodontics for all ages, early interceptive treatment, Invisalign for teenagers and adults, habit appliances, sleep apnea/snore appliances, and TMI treatment.
