When Clare Van Sant, RDH BS, moved to Spartanburg in 1996, she felt she had discovered SC's best kept secret, a lovely city with heart. She grew up in North Augusta, earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene at the Medical College of Georgia, and has lived and worked as a dental hygienist in Gainesville, GA, Frankfurt, Germany, and Charleston, SC. Her professional experience includes children's dentistry, periodontics and public health. Most notably, Clare began and operated SC's first mobile dental hygiene practice, providing onsite preventive care to homebound residents of the Upstate’s long term care facilities. She has taught numerous continuing education courses to fellow healthcare providers on topics such as Dry Mouth and Mobile Dental Health Services. Clare particularly loves working with patients who are anxious about dental visits.
