Tori Ames

I am originally from Chapin, S.C. I recently moved with my four fur-babies to the Orangeburg area. I have two spoiled dogs and two horses at home who like to take up most of my free time. When I'm not spending time with my animals, I love to go on the lake or to the beach; really anywhere with sun and water! I couldn't think of a better place to work. Not only do I get to help people feel confident and happy with their smiles, I get to make new relationships everyday and meet so many wonderful people.

Sara Barrgarye

I married my high school sweetheart Caleb Barregarye in October 2022. We have two dogs, a Chiweenie named Tucker and a flat-coated retriever named Gigi. I enjoy spending time at the beach, on the lake, or visiting new places in this beautiful state we now call home. My favorite part about my job is getting to see the confidence grow in our patients throughout treatment. I know how much having braces made an impact on me so being a part of something that makes a large impact for each person is really exciting. Fun fact about me is that Christmas is my favorite holiday!

Fun fact about me is that I love watching "Grey’s Anatomy."

Kimberly Smith

My hometown is Cope, S.C. I've been married to Ray Smith for 30 years. I have two children, Shay'lyn and Thomas Kittrell, ages 18 and 17. I have one sister (Debora), one brother (Ricky), and an awesome Moma (Betty). I have eight dogs, two cats, and one bird. I enjoy reading, Audible, and going to the beach. I love my job because we get to make a difference in people's lives by creating the perfect smile. Fun fact about me: When my kids were little, we were at Edisto Memorial Gardens feeding the ducks and geese. I did not realize a goose was behind me. He was getting impatient because he was not being fed. He bit me! I turned around and fed him too. My second fun fact is I married the same man twice.

I love my job! I have for the entire time I been with the practice (24+ years).  My patients are like family, and I love helping them along their journey to get the smile they’ve always wanted.

I was born and raised in Orangeburg. I have been an orthodontic assistant for nearly three years and absolutely love getting to know my patients. I love helping people achieve their most confident smile. My favorite part of my job is seeing a patient's face light up when we remove their braces and they see their new smile! In my free time; I enjoy spending time with my 2-year-old son Lucas in the woods, on the water, or the golf course.
