Currently, he is serving as the Vice-President of the South Carolina Pediatric Dental Association and is the next President-Elect. His education began at East Tennessee State University, where he graduated with the highest honors in biological sciences. There, he developed a passion to help others and was recognized for his outstanding treatment for patients with special health care needs at the West Virginia University School of Dentistry.

Dr. Shane and his wife, Melissa, are excited to have called Bluffton and Hilton Head their home for the last 7 years and have enjoyed involving themselves in such a wonderful and growing community.

Recently, they have created a non-profit organization called Sea Kids Smile Worldwide and are excited to help children both locally and globally who are in need of oral health care.
