Meet Dr. Armstrong
I am very passionate about dentistry and providing a quality service to my patients because I genuinely care about people. I am very excited about my staff. They are extremely capable and we work well as a team. They are enthusiastic about the direction of the practice.
In 2014, I moved back to my hometown of Myrtle Beach, SC with a vision of providing the best quality care that dentistry offers today. It has been exciting to be part of the dental field over the last twenty years, to see the countless changes and to change with it. I am excited about the things I have learned through numerous hours of Continuing Education over the last 2 ½ years so that I can provide the best service possible. In November 2015 I completed my year-long study of Dental Implants at Georgia Regents University and I passed my Associate Fellowship exam.
We are busy implementing knowledge gained through continuing education courses and new technology to improve the dental experiences of our patients. We have technology here that makes placing implants very predictable which translates to fewer complications. One of which is a CBCT which allows us to get a 3-Dimensional image of the patients entire mouth. Recently we have started providing same day service for zirconia crowns which is not only more convenient for our patients but also the crown itself is significantly stronger and thus, less likely to break. Grand Strand Dentistry is the only dental office in the Myrtle Beach area to offer zirconia crowns same day. We as an office are attending Continuing Education courses to improve our speed and efficiency with this new technology. Learning and improving is an integral part of our team’s day.
