Dr. Ward, a Columbia native, attended the University of Richmond for her undergraduate degree
where she completed a BS in Biology. She also competed on her collegiate Division I swim team for
the four years she attended the University of Richmond. Immediately finishing college, she started
dental school at MUSC. There she met her husband, and they married after she finished dental school.
Dr. Ward practiced as a general dentist for a few years at Children’s Dentistry of Charleston. There she
worked in tandem as an Associate with Dr. George Deussing. After working in the practice for a few
years, she realized she wanted to pursue her real passion of exclusively working with children by
obtaining the specialist degree as a pediatric dentist. She then completed a two year residency
program at Miami Children’s Hospital. She received specialized training in pediatric dentistry, sedation
dentistry and working with children and adults special health care needs. After completion of her
residency, she returned to Charleston and joined back with Children’s Dentistry.
In her free time, Dr. Ward enjoys doing anything outdoors, but especially activities on the water, such
as boating, fishing, and diving. She also loves spending time with her two children, Isabella and
Jackson, and her husband, Jason.
