Meet the Dr.
Dr. Hapney realized early on how important a smile is for confidence and how it impacts the way others see you after having braces as a teen. Upon graduating high school, she left Ohio where she grew up, and moved to Greenville, PA to attend Thiel College. She earned a B.A. in Chemistry and completed the pre-dental program in only three years while working as a dental assistant. She was blessed to be selected as an international Rotary Ambassador and was able to study Dental Technology and learn to do dental lab work while spending a year abroad in Cardiff, Wales. She attended the University of Louisville School of Dentistry where she earned her DMD degree. She was fortunate to receive many awards for her research in cleft palate development in which she won 3rd place in the nation. She moved to Simpsonville, SC in 2005 and she founded Five Forks Dental Care, Inc.
Dr. Hapney continues to devote her career to helping individuals achieve the smile of their dreams and maintain excellent oral health. She provides unparalleled patient care in the areas of cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry but patients know her for her ability to listen and translate their desires and concerns into smiles that are as functional as they are attractive. Her professional goal is to offer her patients dentistry of the highest expertise and integrity through personal dedication, continuous education and use of the very best materials and advanced techniques.
Dr. Hapney has had extensive post dental school training in caring for patients with TMD, severe wear, and cosmetic dentistry. She is one of two dentists in the upstate that has passed the written test for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. As a dentist and lab technician, she is able to customize dentures and cosmetic smiles in the office. Patients are able to play an active role in selecting their smile while Dr. Hapney designs and creates what would otherwise be done in an off-site laboratory. She is a preferred provider for Invisalign and has been providing orthodontic treatment for over a decade. She has hundreds of hours of training in braces, implants, and advanced surgical techniques.
Dr. Hapney volunteers at Greenville Free Medical Clinic, which provides free care to local people in need, and is a participating dentist in the Give Back A Smile program with the AACD Foundation through which she helps to provide cosmetic dentistry to survivors of domestic abuse. She has also hosted charity events for veterans and provides free care through the Donated Dental Services program, for local disabled veterans. She and her daughter, Eleni Sue, attend New Spring Church in Greenville, SC. In Dr. Hapney's spare time, she enjoys traveling, photography, swimming, learning about other cultures, playing with her Yorkie and spending time with her family and friends.
