Meet our general dentist - Kershaw, SC

Meet Dr. Joanna Cornelius

Dr. Joanna Cornelius

Dr. Cornelius, a committed and enthusiastic general dentist, was welcomed to the Kershaw practice in 2015. Born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan, Dr. Cornelius moved to Bluffton, South Carolina with her family in 2004. After completing her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Coastal Carolina University, she went on to obtain her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina in 2014.

Dr. Cornelius has since acquired additional education and advanced training involving a wide range of pertinent areas, including Invisalign orthodontics, Wave One endodontics, and aesthetic dentistry. Dr. Cornelius brings a fresh, innovative perspective to the forever changing and evolving world of general dentistry and is devoted to providing her patients with the most advanced and appropriate dental solutions. Her main goals include providing the best possible treatment plans for her patients as well as optimizing her patients’ overall oral health.

Dr. Cornelius has fully embraced southern culture and the south’s strong familial and community values, and she has built strong professional and personal ties with the state of South Carolina. When asked what she likes most about practicing in Kershaw, she responded, “working in a town like Kershaw reminds me that dentistry is more than just fixing teeth. It is about building relationships with people and letting them know that their health and wellbeing is my number one priority. I am grateful that not only the staff, but also the town of Kershaw has allowed me to be a part of something very special which Dr. Howell has built over the last 40 years.”

Outside of work, Dr. Cornelius enjoys spending time with her family, golfing, visiting the Carolina beaches, and playing with her two Pugs, Stewy and Penny.
