About Coastal Smile Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Meet Dr. Bob

Dr. Bob grew up in Fort Mill, SC, where his passion for dentistry began. When he was a child, he went to a new pediatric dentist in town who took a special interest in the then 8-year-old Dr. Bob. The periodontist showed him the "behind the scenes" of the dental world. Once the seed was planted, Dr. Bob’s love for dentistry grew. This love landed him at the Medical University of South Carolina where he graduated in 1988.  Dr. Bob truly believes that a healthy mouth leads to a healthy body and loves providing our patients excellent dentistry with his own special flair!
