Columbia’s newest and fastest growing family dental practice, Ivy Creek Family Dentistry, is now accepting patients at its new location, 9007 Two Notch Rd, Ste 2B.
The practice is led by partners, Chermaine Lyde, DMD and Me’Chell James, DMD both members of the American Dental Association.
Dr. Chermaine Lyde is from Lee County. Her father served in the U.S. military, so she grew up traveling to many different places. Dr. Lyde received her undergraduate degree from South Carolina State University in 2002 and her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina in 2007. She then went on to complete a General Practice Residency at Palmetto Health Richland Dental Center in 2008. Dr. Lyde is a member of the South Carolina Dental Association, and the Greater Columbia Dental Association.
Dr. Me’Chell L. James is a native South Carolinian originally from Wadmalaw Island. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from South Carolina State University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She then went to the Medical University of South Carolina, where she obtained her Doctorate of Dental Medicine.
Even though they are not native to the Midlands, the dentists said that they both wanted to live and work in Columbia.
“We chose Columbia as the location for our office because it was our dream to practice in a city that was vibrant and diverse culturally and economically,” they said. “We both are familiar with the area and immediately fell in love with our location after months of searching for the perfect spot.”
Dental services offered by Ivy Creek Family Dentistry includes cleanings, bleaching, extractions, fillings, crowns, and bridges. Same day and next day emergency appointments are available for both adults and children.
“It brings us the most joy knowing that we can change someone’s life with the work that we do,” stated Dr. Lyde.
“It’s amazing what having confidence in your smile can do for your self-esteem and quality of life,” said Dr. James. “We are also blessed to be able to help folks who are in pain and to play a part in their total body health as well, most people don’t realize the connection oral health can have to overall health.”
“We have always loved and appreciated that dentistry is a mixture of art and science,” Dr. Lyde added. “Having great mentors who were dentists who were active in their communities made a really big impact on us as students in high school, college, dental school and still to this day! Building long lasting relationships with our patients and their families while taking care of their dental needs has been one of the highlights of our profession.”
Ivy Creek Family Dentistry is currently offering a new patient special with $100 off any service including whitening with code ICFD100. To schedule an appointment, call (803) 302-4445.
