CHARLESTON, S.C., March 11, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery is pleased to welcome Katrina Myers, DMD, to its practice. Dr. Myers will be seeing patients at COAFS's Lowcountry-area offices.
Dr. Myers is originally from North Carolina and attended dental school at East Carolina University, graduating in 2017.

She is a member of the American Academy of Oral Medicine, the American Dental Association (ADA), the North Carolina Dental Association and the South Carolina Dental Association.
While in residency, Dr. Myers' focus was diagnosing and treating conditions related to temporomandibular disorders, neuropathic conditions of the head and neck, oral manifestations of systemic conditions, salivary gland disorders and management of oral complications associated with cancer-related radiation and chemotherapy. Through the course of her training, Dr. Myers developed a particular passion in working with orofacial pain patients.
