Why Did I Create WildeWood Aesthetic Dentistry?

It's my passion to hand you the confidence to smile everywhere you go - even at the dental office.

I started practicing dentistry in Columbia since 2001 and opened WildeWood in 2002.

I wanted to create a place where people smile freely just from their experience at the dental office.

Every service, interaction – you name it – is filled with warm, personalized attention because we really care.

While I’m a dentist in Columbia, SC, my #1 priority is being a good husband and father. Watch my video and see why that matters.

‘‘Dr. Griffin and his team are simply the best in the business! I was unhappy with work done by a previous dentist. My crowns were not symmetrical, poorly positioned, and off in color. Dr. Griffin went above and beyond to make sure my expectations were met, and I’m in love with my new smile!’’
