Meet the Clinical Team

Our clinical auxiliary team consists of experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants. They assist in the administration of IV sedation and surgery, provide post-operative care to our recovering patients, and maintain the strictest health, safety, and infection control standards in our clinical environment. Many of them also carry hospital privileges with Palmetto Health in order to assist Drs. Dootson, Clary, Tucker and Strider when we have patients who require treatment in a hospital operating room. Each of these highly-trained clinical employees receives hours of quality Continuing Education each year, both in our office and at off-site conferences, and they are CPR certified. They are vital members of our surgical team, and we are proud of the skilled, compassionate care they provide to our patients before, during, and after surgery.
