Dr. Joanna Silver Dover inherited her passion for dentistry from her mother, Susan, a dental hygienist. Joanna knew from an early age that she was called to care for patients and their teeth, enrolling right out of high school in an early-acceptance dental program at the University of Florida's College of Dentistry, where she graduated among the top eight in her class. While completing her residency at Palmetto Health Richland, the good doctor met her future husband, Michael, and decided to set down metaphorical roots in Columbia while caring for the very real and tangible roots and crowns of her patients' teeth. Today, she and her team of experienced dental professionals protect and beautify teeth with a vast arsenal of treatments, from routine exams and digital x-rays, to TMJ treatments, implants, and Boost whitening. Dr. Dover expands her repertoire of services by regularly attending seminars and courses, as well as mastering simple in-office cosmetic procedures such as Botox and Juvéderm.
