Joanna S. Dover, DMD

Joanna S. Dover, DMD, feels truly grateful to practice at her new and updated facility at 3731 Forest Drive. Her mission and passion is to provide conscientious, comprehensive care with options that aren’t easily found elsewhere. With the most up-to-date technology and patient-focused comforts, her team also has the ability to cater to the entire family with both Forest Drive Dental Care and Columbia Children’s Dentistry under one roof.

With her undergraduate degree in human nutrition, Dr. Dover believes in total-body health, offering the most biocompatible products and staying current on research behind holistic and alternative treatments and materials. Her practice offers intraoral scanning that gets you away from messy and uncomfortable impressions, the SMART amalgam removal protocol, laser lip and tongue revisions, zirconia implants, fluoride-free gluten-free dye-free products, anti-caries probiotics, platelet rich fibrin, Eco-line clear aligners, ceramic-based filling materials, and sleep apnea appliances for both children and adults.

The new facility provides an elevated experience and unsurpassed comforts like Etta, their goldendoodle, who will provide emotional support, as well as ceiling-mounted televisions with streaming services and personal headphones so you may catch up on your favorite shows, massaging dental chairs, “LAUGHING gas” (nitrous oxide) in each room, essential oil diffusers, dedicated entertainment area for children, and much more.

Dr. Dover is a member of numerous organizations, including the International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. Her patients are often referred from other health care providers and travel from all over the Southeast. She has spent the past two years creating and patenting edible nanohydroxyapatite toothpaste that is currently available both at her office and at select locations around the Midlands.

She shares her practices with Sarah Anne Knowlton, DMD; Ashley Elizabeth Price, DMD; and Jonathan Kaczmarski, DMD. Together, their team strives to exceed expectations in helping each patient realize his or her individual dental and whole health goals.
