Meet Dr. Bryan Wingate
Bryan's love for the State of South Carolina started right here in Forest Acres where he was born and raised. He attended both Ben Lippen Christian School and A.C. Flora. For his undergraduate degree Bryan left the Midlands to attend Clemson University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. From the Upstate he went south to the Lowcountry. In Charleston, Bryan received his dental training from the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. After earning his doctorate of dental medicine, the call of home brought him right back here to Forest Acres where he lives, works, and plays.
Bryan enjoys continually learning more about the art and practice of dentistry. He sees dentistry as both a fun hobby and a profession. Now that he has two daughters that captivate his love and time, Bryan enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors and bow hunting with them. He also spends much time serving as a member and elder at Columbia Presbyterian Church.
Meet Dr. Jeanette Wingate
Jeanette was born in Florida but is a Carolina girl at heart. She always dreamed of going to Clemson University just like her parents. At Clemson she met Bryan, and the two have been inseparable since. She graduated Clemson, Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. At the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine Jeanette also excelled, graduating with her doctorate of dental medicine and receiving both academic and clinical honors.
Jeanette loves the Midlands and has wasted no time converting the Wingate's Forest Acres house into a home. She loves spending most of her time at home with their two daughters, Eliza Ann and Lillie. During this season of life, Jeanette is working part-time as a dentist and is extremely grateful for the ﬂexibility to be both a mom and dentist. She also enjoys walking in the neighborhood, entertaining in their home, and being involved at their church, Columbia Presbyterian Church. On Saturdays in the Fall her affections are drawn to the Upstate where her friends and family gather to see the Tigers play.
