Warm, Welcoming Office

Going to the dentist doesn’t have to mean sitting in a cold, clinical environment surrounded by unwelcoming faces. At Ammons Dental by Design, we pride ourselves on being pleasant and professional. We have also worked hard to create an office that you look forward to visiting. While you’re here, take advantage of our complimentary WiFi and beverages, watch a show on the TV screens in our private treatment rooms, or use our headphones to listen to music while we work. We strive to give you an enjoyable experience every time you come in.

Meet Our Team

Dr. Charles Moore

Joy has been a part of our team since 2015 and is passionate about her job as our office manager. She holds an MBA from the College of Charleston and loves working in historic downtown Charleston. For Joy, there’s nothing like the satisfied look on a patient’s face when they’ve successfully navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance and financing, as well as the unknowns that can be involved in dental treatments. She loves seeing patients leave our office with a bigger, brighter smile! Calming fears, answering questions, and making treatment possible while maintaining a soothing environment is rewarding to Joy.

Her other passion is her family. Joy and her husband, Jason, have five amazing children and a foster daughter. Whether traveling or playing around the house, her family never fails to make her heart smile!
