About Us

Meet Dr. Hamrick

Dr. C. Preston Hamrick D.M.D.

Dr. Hamrick grew up in the Upstate of South Carolina and is a fourth generation dentist in his family. His great grandfather and grandfather served the Charleston community for over fifty years, beginning in 1930. His father, who is a practicing periodontist in Greenville for over 30 years, was very influential in his decision to become a dentist. Observing how much he enjoyed his work through the years had a strong impact on his career decision.

Dr. Hamrick really enjoys the personal aspect of dental practice. Practicing dentistry at a pace that allows him to provide excellent care, while at the same time getting to know his patients on a more personal level, is a significant part of his practice philosophy. He strives for his patients to have a comfortable and positive dental experience, including adequate time for them to discuss any of their questions or concerns regarding their dental needs. He is passionate about helping patients achieve an esthetically pleasing smile while at the same time maintaining excellent dental health.

Dr. Hamrick graduated Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina with a degree in philosophy. Since graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina, Dr. Hamrick has continued to advance his dental knowledge by taking courses at some of the most prestigious dental institutes across the country. These include programs at Spear Education in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington, where he is currently working on completing their graduate level curriculum. While the state of South Carolina requires only 14 hours per year of continuing education, Dr. Hamrick currently averages 90 plus hours of continuing education per year.

“I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was. I love the location, its very convenient to where I work so making it very easy to visit during my lunch hour. Just a great experience, would definitely recommend”

Scott M

“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”

Michele Z.

“Couldn’t be happier! The staff are so friendly and personable; appointments are quick yet thorough. The best service I’ve ever received at a dentist office.”
