KimKim J.

Office Manager

I joined Buist Dental in 1998, where I oversee the day-to-day operations of our practice, as well as billing and insurance. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them to achieve their dental goals. My favorite thing is seeing the smiles on their faces!

I am married to the love of my life, Drew. We have a 20-year-old kitty named Sammy and a 12-year-old Anatolian Shepherd mix named Gracie Emma. Drew and I own a local bike shop, Andy Jordan’s Bicycle Warehouse. We love our cycling community and enjoy the wonders in nature that God has blessed us with. In our free time, we enjoy traveling to the North Carolina Mountains and Sarasota, Florida.



Dental Hygienist

I began my career as a dental assistant in 1993. I went back to school at Midlands Technical College to study dental hygiene, and graduated in 2000. I focus on providing individualized patient care during hygiene appointments. I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level and consider many of them to be like family.

I have two grown sons, Cameron and Kyle, as well as a bird named Ozzy. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, college football (Go Tigers and Dawgs!), reading, and spending time with family and friends. I am also a member of Grace United Methodist Church.



Dental Hygienist

I joined Buist Dental in 2010 after finishing my dental hygiene education at Midlands Technical College. I strive to provide excellent patient care, whether I am cleaning teeth or providing personalized home care instructions. My favorite part of my job is seeing a patient’s boost in confidence after teeth whitening or other cosmetic procedures, especially seeing the results with before and after pictures!

I am happiest when I’m on the water! I enjoy lake life with my family, friends, and three dogs. One of my favorite hobbies is striper fishing.

Lead Dental Assistant

I’ve worked in the clinic area of Buist Dental since 2001, to assist the doctors with a variety of procedures while supporting patients. I especially enjoy teaching people about their oral health and helping them achieve a wonderful smile. Our doctors and the rest of our staff are rock stars! We all love our patients and treat everyone like family.

I have been married to Norm for nearly a decade and have two sons, Landen and Lukas. When I am not working, I love to shop, spend time with family, and go on vacation.



Lead Dental Assistant

At Buist Dental, we care for all ages, so my day is diverse and always interesting! I seat patients and make sure they’re comfortable, prepare them, and assist our doctors during treatment. I love all aspects of working with my doctors and teammates. We have been working together for many years, so they’re like my second family!

I have three cats at home: Nexie, Van, and Tang. I enjoying going to lunch with friends and shopping.
