Ravenel Periodontics Team
MEET YOUR CARE TEAM
Dr. Lisa Ravenel
Dr. Lisa Ravenel is a Greenville-area native who’s keen interest in physiology and pathology became evident to her in her early 20’s. After completion of her degree in Biology from the University of South Carolina – Columbia, Dr. Ravenel continued to earn her doctorate in Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina and afterwards was accepted into her specialty program in periodontics at MUSC in Charleston while also completing her Master’s in Health Sciences. Dr. Ravenel is a member of various organizations, including the American Dental Association, the South Carolina Dental Association, the American Academy of Periodontology, and the Southern Academy of Periodontology. What she loves most about the specialty is the science-based nature of every treatment or surgery. Each surgery is different and the challenge is to determine what components are needed for success with each procedure.
Dr. Ravenel met her loving husband of more than 20 years in dental school. She is the proud mother of three boys, and she spends most free time with her family, visiting nearby Lake Keowee, and planning last minute mini-vacations. The Ravenels enjoy church, movies, sporting activities outdoors, and being with family and friends. Dr. Ravenel adores animals – all of them! If she could only choose one thing to see later in life, it is to see her children grown living happy and intentional lives, never taking the small things for granted and remembering happiness comes from being true to God’s plan for you.
Dr. Ravenel’s parents are her source of inspiration in life. She holds close to her advice given such as “failure is not trying”, ” if you do something, you may as well do it right”, and just seeing the abundant joy and laughter they brought to those around. Core values instilled from early on have filled my heart with desire to help others, try to give more than you take, and to count your blessings by paying it forward.
Didi earned her CDA from Midlands Tech in Columbia, SC and has 30 years of dental experience. Her warm and confident demeanor helps to create a comfortable environment for patients. Didi is an excellent cook, a very talented seamstress, and enjoys spending time with her two daughters and three grandchildren.
When asked who most inspires her, Didi shares that she has learned much from her daughters — how to be more patient, kind, loving, and to live each day joyfully. Everyday Didi"s around the office, she brings a warm smile for everyone and words of kindness.
Cassi is our patients’ main contact for scheduling. She’s extremely personable and upbeat, a favorite with patients. Cassi is detail-oriented and computer savvy, bringing much to the table. She is from Piedmont, SC and graduated from Wren High School in 2010. When away from work, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and going to church. She also loves to read. Cassi has a creative side which she nurtures with crochet, cooking, and adult coloring.
If Cassi had to choose one thing she wishes to do more than anything, it would be to go skydiving with her grandfather. He is a Vietnam vet, and this is something they’ve talked about many times before. She has been most inspired in life by her “Grandpa and Nanny” — both humble, compassionate towards others, and a love of the Lord beyond words. Cassi is a loyal friend and has the desire to always learn something new to improve our efficiency.
Britton is an Erskine grad who earned her degree in sports medicine and biology. For years now, she’s played tennis, on her college team and teaching tennis to children and adults alike. Britton is also a mother of two precious girls and loves spending time with her family. Britton enjoys adventuring with pets Molly and Wally. She also loves her church, Citylights. A long-time dream is to spend Christmas in the Big Apple, NYC. Her greatest inspiration comes from Jesus and the love and grace he has for us all. She wants to be a reflection of that love to everyone she meets. Britton does not compromise her integrity and is the eternal optimist!
Candice lives in Anderson, SC with her husband and three lovely children. As a expanded duty assistant, Candice has had much experience in many facets of dentistry. She enjoys getting to know our patients, helping to answer questions pertaining to upcoming treatment, and has a way with putting patients at ease. When she is not working, she enjoys time with family and friends. Her interests include travel, shopping, and some may say she is a bit of a "foodie".
At the top of her “bucket-list” is participating in some type of dental mission work in a country of need. Candice has a heart of gold and the work ethic of an elite athlete!
Dani is our newest member of the team! She graduated from Greenville Technical College in 2007 where she worked in pharmacy for 10 years prior to making a switch to dentistry, which she absolutely loves. Dani is the proud mother of twin boys and one daughter. She and her husband live in Simpsonville and enjoy being involved with the kids sports, traveling to different beaches, and enjoys trying out new restaurants frequently.
One trait that sets Dani apart is her drive to learn all she can and be at the top of her game to better serve our patients. For Dani, her heroes would be her parents. The values, life skills, encouragement and advice given in life are beyond measure. A dream vacation for Dani would be either to tropical islands or even to tour ALL of Europe! Dani is charming and certainly a great addition to our team.
