Meet the Doctor at Smile On Dental
General Dentist for Children in North Charleston
Lynnette A. Cushing, DMD
Dr. Lynnette attended the University of New Hampshire and studied for a degree in Pre-Med and Communication/Rhetoric. From there she directly went on to enroll at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, where she graduated in 2014.
Dr. Lynnette completed her clinical rotation at Lynn Community Health Center, where she worked twelve hours per day serving patients with preventive and restorative dentistry. At Tufts University, Dr. Lynnette actively participated in the pediatric undergrad clinic and gained extensive experience before relocating to Charleston and beginning her life as a southerner.
At Smile On Dental, Dr. Lynnette continues with her love of teeth. She provides comprehensive care to all of her patients in a friendly and professional environment. She particularly enjoys the challenge of easing anxiety in her younger patients and believes that everyone deserves a positive (and fun!) dental experience.
Dr. Lynnette attended the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation course in Seattle in the fall of 2015 to receive training in single-dose oral sedation, which she will begin utilizing at the start of 2016. This new program will provide an option for a quick and easy no-memory experience for patients who are particularly nervous for their visit. She is also proficient in the administration and monitoring of nitrous oxide, which the office is fully equipped to provide.
Dr. Lynnette takes every opportunity to enjoy the sunny weather of South Carolina. She loves to take her puppy to the beach and other great events around the Lowcountry. She enjoys watching sports on TV and never misses a New England Patriots game!
Dr. Lynnette is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Massachusetts Dental Society.
