About Your Dentist

David Swee, DDS

"I strongly believe that effective dental care is vital to maintaining overall health. My approach is to provide each patient with personalized care that helps them achieve their goals for optimal dental health. There is a large body of scientific research that links poor dental health to more severe systemic issues, including heart disease, stroke, arterial blockage, and bacterial pneumonia. My goal is to help my patients avoid those problems through effective preventative care that includes regular visits, professional teeth cleaning, and good dental hygiene habits."

My Mission

"My staff and I are dedicated to providing high-quality dentistry in a caring and comfortable environment using state-of-the-art equipment and the latest techniques and technology. We believe in educating our patients about their dental needs and overall health. We understand that many people feel anxious about visiting the dentist and receiving treatment; we want to eliminate this stress by working together with our patients and taking the time to listen to their questions and concerns. We will discuss each patient's options in order to design an individualized treatment plan that meets his or her unique needs."

Education

"I earned my Bachelor's degree from Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. I am devoted to lifelong learning and I have completed advanced training in a variety of cosmetic dental services. I am a certified Invisalign provider and I look forward to using my expertise in teeth alignment to help you enjoy the smile you've always dreamed about."

Continuing Education & Professional Memberships

"I stay current with the ever-changing field of dentistry and its technological advancements. I regularly attend continuing education courses to enhance my dental skills and knowledge. I routinely complete 100+ hours of advanced training, which far exceeds the minimum requirement of 14 hours annually. In addition, I maintain membership in several professional organizations and associations including the American Dental Association (ADA), South Carolina Dental Association (SCDA), and the Coastal District Dental Society."

Life & Hobbies

"South Carolina is a beautiful, special place to live and practice dentistry and I consider myself fortunate to be a part of this community. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with friends and family at the beach. I also enjoy playing golf, attending sporting events, and traveling."
