Johanna — Dental Hygienist
Welcome to Cox Dental Care! As one of our hygienists, a big part of my job is to provide education on oral hygiene and to make sure you understand the importance of how oral health can affect your entire body. I’ll work with you to come up with oral health solutions to meet your specific needs and help in any way that I can to ensure you have a healthy smile for life.
It is so rewarding to help people make the best possible choices regarding their oral health. When I see the improvements they’ve made, it makes me realize how much of a difference I can make in a patient’s life!
I am a wife and a mother of three beautiful children: Valentina, Alexander and a new baby, Abigail. I have a cat that we consider part of our family. When I’m not in the office, I love to spend time with my kids playing outdoors and watching movies.
Jennifer — Dental Assistant
Hi and welcome. I’m looking forward to meeting you! We have a great team, and I’m proud to work with Dr. Cox. We’re united in our desire to make sure you’re smiling and feeling safe and supported during visits. If there’s anything you need, please let us know!
I’ll help you during visits, seat you, make sure you’re comfortable in the chair and explain what will happen during your procedure. I’ll sit by your side to assist Dr. Cox and talk with you about what we’re doing. When we’re finished, I’ll provide home-care instructions and check to make sure you’re happy with what we’ve done.
I’m a newcomer to South Carolina. Born and raised in Florida, I moved here in June 2016 with my fiancé, daughter and our cat. When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my family and probably exploring our new state. We enjoy the outdoors, hiking, festivals, historic battlefields and farmers markets. It’s fun to live in a place with seasons!
