Christy Lawhon, DMD 803.865.1421

147 Summit Centre Dr. Columbia, SC 29229



Dr. Lawhon always had a passion for pediatrics so upon her graduation from her pediatric residency she set out to open her own practice. She knew there was a need for an office in the ever growing Northeast Columbia area. With homes and businesses moving further toward the Summit, Sandhills, Blythewood, Pontiac there was a real shortage of Pediatric Dentists, a hole Dr. Lawhon is now filling. Dr. Lawhon built her practice literally from the ground up, with a lot and a floor plan she created a state of the art facility that is actually Fun for children. Her love for children is evident the first time you meet her, with a big smile and a caring attitude she will win you over from the first visit!
