Anderson dentist Dr. Patrick Carter , D.M.D. and his family

Dr. Patrick Carter, D.M.D.

Dr. Carter was born and raised in the small town of Elliott, SC where his parents owned and operated their own music label Ripete Records. Coming from a long bloodline of Clemson Alumni, it was no surprise that he attended Clemson University himself. He graduated from Clemson with a degree in Pre-Professional Health Studies in May 2007 and went on to attend the Medical University of South Carolina for dental school. He graduated from MUSC in May 2011 and immediately began associateships in Anderson and Abbeville.  
Dr. Carter spent many months looking for the perfect location for his own dental office. His goal was to find a location with a neighborhood feel, while being convenient to those commuting to daily jobs and other activities. He already knew he enjoyed the people and community in Anderson, and the location he chose off of Hwy 81 stood out to him as the perfect home for his new office. Hopewell Family Dentistry was founded in February 2013.
While attending Clemson University, Dr. Carter met his wife Carly. She was raised in Greenville, SC and also attended MUSC. Carly is currently a Speech Therapist at Anmed Hospital. Dr. Carter and Carly have two children, Banks(2013) and Georgia(2016), that they love with all their hearts. They live nearby in Anderson and are members of Central Presbyterian Church.
In his time away from dentistry, Dr. Carter enjoys following Clemson football, fishing on Lake Hartwell, listening to music, and spending time at his family’s vacation home on the Black River.
