Meet Dr. Julia Vance, DDS
Dr. Julia Vance became fascinated with the field of dentistry after undergoing orthodontic treatment at just 13 years old. Growing up in Upstate New York, she volunteered in local dental offices through high school and undergrad. She developed a love for the field's unique blend of medicine, art, and attention to detail. She attended Rochester Institute of Technology and earned a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences with highest honors. She was fortunate to have been accepted into several dental schools and chose to attend her state school, University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Here, Dr. Vance's passion for dentistry truly flourished. She had the opportunity to participate in several outreach groups, where she provided free dental care in upstate New York, as well as other rural areas of the country through Remote Area Medical. Upon graduating Cum Laude, Dr. Vance was honored to receive the Academy of General Dentistry Award which recognizes a student with exceptional clinical experience and knowledge in all aspects of general dentistry.
Dr. Vance moved to Greenville following her family, having fallen in love with this beautiful and upcoming area. She worked in group practice for 2 years, during which time she had the opportunity to continue her education through courses in Invisalign, endodontics, laser therapy, oral surgery, and restorative dentistry. Dr. Vance met Dr. Hapney through the Dawson Study Club, and jumped at the opportunity to join the practice as her associate. She shares Dr. Hapney's vision for providing beautiful and functional dentistry at the highest standard. She is excited to be a part of the team at Five Forks Dental Care and looks forward to providing compassionate life-long care to her patients. Dr. Vance enjoys all aspects of dentistry, especially endodontics and cosmetic procedures. She is passionate about building relationships with her patients, educating them to make informed decisions about their oral health, and always aspires to provide a comfortable and gentle experience.
She and her husband, Stephen, a native of the area, reside in Simpsonville with their 3 cats, Willow, Meadow, and Oliver. In their free time you can find them at home cooking and gardening, exploring Greenville's newest places or spending time with their church small group. You can also spot them at Clemson games cheering on the Tigers in the fall with their friends and family!
Awesome office. Did what would have taken weeks at another office. Saved money in the process.
Recently had my teeth cleaned and fillings done at five forks dental care! Great experience, excellent staff and will continue to go here in the future!
By far the best experience I have ever had at a dentist office. Everyone is so helpful and courteous. I'm always greeted with a smile and they go above and beyond with helping to resolve any problems or concerns I have. And they don't mind working around my schedule and my financial ability. I have sent all of my friends here and will continue to because Five Forks Dental Care is the best place in Greenville County hands down.
I truly enjoyed my visit and the Hygienist Frannie was spectacular. I have never experienced such Quality of service and to think I even received a complimentary hand was treatment. What can I say; it's a must try dentist. You will not regrets it!!!!!
