Dr. Bob Garrison has more than 30 years of experience as an orthodontist, and has helped thousands of patients achieve beautiful and healthy smiles through braces and a wide array of orthodontic treatments. A lifelong South Carolina resident whose father was a general dentist in Columbia, SC, Dr. Garrison grew up and worked in the Columbia and Lexington areas, and owned a successful orthodontic practice in Lexington for decades, where he put braces on more than 10,000 patients, including the daughter of former Governor of South Carolina and current United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. In 2016, Dr. Garrison sold his orthodontic practice in Lexington with the idea of retiring in Bluffton. However, it didn’t take him long to realize that starting a new orthodontic practice made sense in so many ways. With the launch of Bluffton Orthodontics, Dr. Garrison is excited to bring his many years of experience and passion for orthodontics to the Lowcountry – creating a unique practice that not only provides patients and families the highest quality of experienced orthodontic care and outstanding results, but offers a fun environment and stress-free journey to a beautiful smile. A graduate of the University of South Carolina with a BS in Biology, he earned his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and his degree in orthodontics from the Medical College of Georgia.
