About Us


Dr. Candice Vinson

Dr. Vinson’s passion for oral health and happy smiles began at an early age. When she was younger, both her parents received smile makeovers that changed their lives. She still remembers the tears of joy when her mom and dad saw their new, improved smiles for the first time. From that moment, Dr. Vinson knew that she wanted to be a part of the profession that makes true improvements in the physical and emotional aspects of people’s lives.

Dr. Vinson grew up in Georgia. When she moved to South Carolina for college, she knew this is where she’d put down her roots. After she graduated from the College of Charleston, she received her DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) from Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine. From there, she completed her 3 year Prosthodontics residency in Birmingham at the University of Alabama, where she served as chief resident.

Now that she’s back in South Carolina, Dr. Vinson is proud to serve the community of Mount Pleasant and offer compassionate dental care in a friendly environment. If you’re in need of dental restorations and want a specialty trained Prosthodontist, Dr. Vinson would love to meet you and work with you to develop a treatment plan that will result in a proud, healthy smile.
