Dentists Give Back to the Community

Dr. Joe Griffin and the other doctors at Advanced Dental Center strongly believe in giving back to the community. Our team serves Florence in many ways, and we hope you’ll join us.

Dr. Griffin on community involvement Read Transcript

Dr. Joe Griffin is a recipient of the Palmetto Patriot award, which is given by South Carolina’s lieutenant governor in recognition of commitment to community service. Dr. Griffin is also a trustee and board member at Florence-Darlington Technical College as well as a society member and Paul Harris Fellow of the Rotary Club of Florence. He serves as a consultant for NCGS, Inc., a medical research and drug approval corporation based out of South Carolina.

Dr. John Hess and other members of the Advanced Dental Center team are regular volunteers at Mercy Medicine Free Clinic, which provides free dental care to the indigent and working poor. They’ve also provided care through the Dental Lifeline Network of South Carolina and the South Carolina Dental Association’s Dental Access Days. Our entire team has helped assemble hurricane hygiene kits for victims of recent hurricanes.

Our team wants to help you begin your new career as a dental assistant. We have started a dental assistant apprentice program that offers on-the-job training! These positions are open to the public, and we have scholarships available. This is our way of recruiting, training, and hiring from within our community, and we hope it will help us grow into the future. Contact our office to fill out an application.

Other organizations we support through volunteer efforts and/or monetary contributions, both locally and beyond, include:

Our team of dentists also includes three military veterans who have proudly served our country, while several of our staff have served or are currently serving in the Reserves.
