I am both glad and grateful that I have been able to help so many patients over the years. There have been many who were both frightened and in pain, and I have been able to ease both. Of course, I am helped in all of this by our wonderful staff members. Without them, it would be difficult to accomplish the level of care we are known for at Central Carolina Endodontics.
I really enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level. I have heard so many wonderful stories from them. Whether they are veterans, homemakers, farmers, or teachers, it has been a pleasure to meet and work with each one. – Dr. Melanie Brown
Education and Continuing Education
Dr. Melanie Brown took the long route to endodontics. She went to dental assisting school and from there, straight to dental hygiene school, all at the Medical University of SC. She worked as a dental hygienist for five years before returning to dental school at the Medical University of SC, College of Dental Medicine for her Doctorate of Dental Medicine, which she completed in 1993. Dr. Brown then went to the University of Pittsburgh Dental School for her residency in endodontics, finishing in 1995.
A member of the American Association of Endodontists, Dr. Brown completes most of her continuing education requirements at their annual sessions. She also attends local dental society meetings through the Edisto Dental Society. This allows her to keep current on changes and developments in the field, especially new technologies, materials, and treatments.
