DR. BRIAN ARMSTRONG

Dentist

I am very passionate about dentistry and providing a quality service to my patients because I genuinely care about people. I am very excited about my staff. They are extremely capable and we work well as a team. They are enthusiastic about the direction of the practice.

In 2014, I moved back to my hometown of Myrtle Beach, SC with a vision of providing the best quality care that dentistry offers today. It has been exciting to be part of the dental field over the last twenty years, to see the countless changes and to change with it. I am excited about the things I have learned through numerous hours of Continuing Education over the last 2 ½ years so that I can provide the best service possible. In November 2015 I completed my year-long study of Dental Implants at Georgia Regents University and I passed my Associate Fellowship exam.

We are busy implementing knowledge gained through continuing education courses and new technology to improve the dental experiences of our patients. We have technology here that makes placing implants very predictable which translates to fewer complications. One of which is a CBCT which allows us to get a 3-Dimensional image of the patients entire mouth. Recently we have started providing same day service for zirconia crowns which is not only more convenient for our patients but also the crown itself is significantly stronger and thus, less likely to break. Grand Strand Dentistry is the only dental office in the Myrtle Beach area to offer zirconia crowns same day. We as an office are attending Continuing Education courses to improve our speed and efficiency with this new technology. Learning and improving is an integral part of our team’s day.

Dr. Armstrong graduated from Socastee High School in 1986. He then earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of South Carolina in 1990. After which he earned his dental degree from MUSC in Charleston in 1994. He then served in Army where much of his time was spent in Ft. Benning, GA. Dr. Armstrong opened his first dental practice in Spartanburg, SC where he had a thriving practice for 17 years.

Dr. Armstrong moved back to the Grand Strand in 2014 where they immediately became involved in the church he grew up in, Surfside PCA. He is blessed to be married to his lovely wife, Leslie, for over 20 years. They have three children – Joseph, Kingston and Erin. Dr. Armstrong loves to serve God by serving people.

ERIKA QUINTEROS

Dental Assistant
I was born in El Salvador in Central America, but I have lived in Conway, South Carolina for over 17 years. I’ve recently discovered a passion for dentistry and I graduated the Palmetto School of Career Development as a dental assistant. I give God all the glory for where I am today. I have a wonderful family and I love to spend as much time with them as possible, especially my 8 year old sister who loves to do everything with me. In my spare time I love to go to the beach and just relax. I’m super excited to be part of the Grand Strand Dentistry family and enjoy helping others maintain a great smile.

Nací en El Salvador pero eh vivido en Conway, Carolina del Sur por más de 17 años. Recientemente descubrí una pasión por la dentadura y me gradué de la escuela de Palmetto School of Career Development como asistente de dentista. Le doy toda la gloria a Dios por ábreme permitido llegar asta aquí. Tengo una familia maravillosa y me encanta pasar tiempo junto a ellos, en especial mi hermanita de 8 años que le gusta hacer todo con migo. En mi tiempo libre me gusta ir a la playa y relajarme. Estoy súper feliz de formar parte de la familia de Grand Strand Dentistry y ayudar a los demás a mantener una sonrisa brillante.
