Dr. Tony Mennito graduated from Temple Dental School in 2003 and moved to Charleston the following week as his wife, Sarah, was beginning her Pediatric residency at MUSC. Dr. Mennito practiced 90 minutes away in Bamberg. Their son, Sam, was born in 2007, and in 2009 he began teaching at MUSC College of Dental Medicine.
At the Medical University, he found a love of teaching that has only grown stronger. Over the past 10 years, while teaching and practicing dentistry, he has done the research, patented a dental material, started a biotech company, published 17 clinical papers, and began an international speaking career focusing on dental technology and materials.
He is excited to join a new group of mentors and partners at Expertise Dental, all focused on a common goal–providing the best dentistry for our patients, using modern technology and techniques to make sure that your oral health stays in great shape.
In his own words...
"People always ask me why I chose to become a dentist. It's a difficult question to answer because the truth is when I made the decision I was only 14 and knew virtually nothing about the profession. As it turned out, I was pretty smart as a 14-year-old. Dentistry fits me perfectly and I couldn't imagine ever doing anything else.
I've been teaching and practicing at the Medical University of South Carolina since 2010. Here is where I found my niche in dentistry - esthetics and CAD/CAM dentistry. The ability to change someone's smile or to fix a badly broken down tooth is fantastic in and of itself. But to be able to do it in one visit....wow!
I consider myself extremely lucky to work in a profession that I love and to be able to pass on my passion for dentistry to a whole new generation of practitioners. In the future, I hope to expand the scope of my teaching talents to a national and international audience. Stay tuned..."
