Meet Our Dentists
Dr Jeffrey Johnson
Dr. Johnson actually grew up with a dentist for a dad. He knew from an early age that he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps – in fact, in elementary school, he wrote that he wanted to become a dentist too! Today, he couldn’t be happier to have made that long-ago goal a reality.
After completing his undergraduate degree at the College of Charleston, Dr. Johnson pursued his dental doctorate at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine. He has also undergone advanced training in dental implant surgery through the Engel Implant Institute. Dr. Johnson was also invited to and now serves as a Clinical Instructor there to teach other dentists how to place implants. He is an outstanding general and restorative dentist and will be providing our patients with all aspects of general restorative and surgical care. Today, he is currently a member of the American Dental Association, South Carolina Dental Association, and SPEAR Education.
Away from work, Dr. Johnson has a wonderful fiancée named Jennifer and two Miniature Dachshunds named Duggie and Daika. He is also very close with his parents and older brother. In his spare time, you can usually find him on the ocean! He loves fishing, boating, and looking for shark’s teeth on the beach. He also works out at the gym as often as possible.
Dr Virginia Gregory
Dr. Virginia Gregory earned a bachelor’s of science degree in dental hygiene from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill before receiving her doctor of dental medicine degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1985. She also holds a master’s of science degree in speech pathology.
For nearly 32 years, Dr. Gregory has brought contemporary clinical dentistry and optimal patient comfort to families in the Charleston area. Passionate about excellence and education, Dr. Gregory believes that her patients only deserve the very best. She completed extensive coursework at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and is an LVI preferred dentist – one of the few dentists in the state to have achieved this status. In 2002, Dr. Gregory was pleased to open her state-of-the-art dental office in Mount Pleasant, SC, featuring the latest tools and amenities to make her patients smile.
She is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the South Carolina Dental Association. Dr. Gregory also earned a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry after hundreds of hours of continuing education and rigorous testing.
Dr. Gregory is married and has one adult daughter. She and her husband live on the Isle of Palms with their labradoodle named Baxter. In her few free hours, Dr. Gregory likes to relax by painting, shopping and traveling.
Dr Anya Kent
Dr. Anya Kent is an endodontist recently relocated from Westchester, NY where she was voted “Top Dentist” by her peers in the Westchester Magazine for 5 years running from 2012 through 2016. She brings with her 14 years of endodontic experience as well as a Global dental microscope allowing for magnification to locate canals as well as allow for smaller access openings.
Dr. Kent attended New York University College of Dentistry, receiving her DDS degree in 1999. She completed her residency in Endodontics from the Manhattan Veterans Administration Hospital in 2003. She has worked in private practice in Westchester until her move here last summer.
Dr. Kent currently resides in Mount Pleasant with her husband, 2 daughters, her chocolate lab and 2 cats. She is loving all that Mount Pleasant has to offer including tennis, golf, fishing, wonderful beaches and warm friends and neighbors she has met here.
She looks forwards to providing our patients with caring and comfortable endodontic care.

Amy at the front desk, Victoria the dental assistant, and Dr. Johnson saved the day for me! I was having a dental issue and unable to get in anywhere else, I called their office as they have treated me for my TMJ in the past and they said come right on in and we will help. I work at a medical practice in the area that specializes in world class client care so I am very picky about service. I see the exact same level of service and care at this office. What a great group, thanks again for getting me in and being the best all around! Highly recommend.

I had a great cleaning at Smile Carolina. From the moment I walked into the office my experience was positive. The building is clean and spacious and I was greeted by Jennifer who was extremely welcoming! Angel did my cleaning and she was very gentle and did a great job. Dr. Johnson was prompt and kind! It was nice to see an office that is invested in the latest technology and constant learning.

Do not get serious work done anywhere else. Great group top to bottom. Dr Johnson has been a pro.

Dr Johnson and his assistant Victoria successfully repaired two teeth requiring extensive work. His procedure began with a clear explanation of the process and caring questions reminding me to raise my hand if I was the slightest bit uncomfortable! All the necessary work was completed painlessly ( I esp appreciated the pillow, noise cancelling headphones and neck wrap placed thoughtfully by Victoria) .
If you need dental care, big or small, I highly recommend Dr Johnson and victoria at smile Carolina in mount pleasant, SC!
They are the best in the business!
Can I give them 6 stars?
– Cookie S
Dr. Johnson and his dental care team of Amy, Victoria and Shae are outstanding. Dr. Johnson, who is a clinical instructor of dental implant surgery, performed my implant surgery with excellent results so far (it must be done in stages). He also incorporates the latest 3D imaging technology to ensure an excellent outcome. Dr. Johnson and his staff went above and beyond my expectations for the implant procedure, post operative follow up and routine cleanings.
