The Pee Dee Dental
Group is not your ordinary dentist's office. Toothless patients
come from all over the country to see Dr. Charles Conner. When
they walk out of his office, they have teeth. Dr. Conner's practice
attracts a nationwide clientele with patients from as far away
as Florida, New Jersey, and California because of his groundbreaking
work in implantology, in addition to a wide range of other dental services.
Through dental implantology, patients can replace one tooth, or
up to every tooth in the mouth, allowing for greater comfort and
convenience than dentures and other kinds of removable teeth.
"We were the first
in the area to offer implantology," says Dr. Conner. He has been
performing these procedures for 20 years and is one of the most
qualified implantologists in the country. He has studied at the
University of Southern California at San Francisco and worked
with world-renowned implantologists, including Leonard Linkow,
the "father of implantology," who was the first to do dental implants.
When Dr. Conner first became interested in implantology, it was
a newly emerging field. He had to travel all over the country,
from California to Alabama, to learn the newest techniques. Conner
says that when he first set up his practice, he asked other dentists
to join him. But even though the nearest location that offered
dental implants was 100 miles away, the other dentists backed
away from the idea. "They said people are not going to do it in
Florence," says Conner.
After 20 years in business and more than 4,000 implants, Dr. Conner
has proven them wrong. Now he travels all over the country lecturing
on implantology, and his practice attracts patients from all over
the country to the Florence area.
The Pee Dee Dental Group offers unique services to the Pee Dee.
The office is located at 461 West Cheves in Florence. For further
