All of my associates are Howard University College of Dentistry graduates, and I am proud of that. I have been a member of the National Dental Association since 1965. My family and I developed strong friendships by being affiliated with this group of dental professionals. My objective is to provide the very best dentistry to the citizens of Lancaster, South Carolina and surrounding areas. I have over 43 years of dental experiences providing a full range of dental care to patients of all ages from economically and culturally diverse populations.

Dr. Gray believes that dentistry goes beyond merely treating teeth and is deeply rooted in the long lost art of "true general dentistry". Dr. Gray has constantly endeavored to stay abreast of the latest developments in dental sciences by accumulating continuing education credits.

Dr. Gray takes pride in the quality of care he provides and is dedicated to helping patients learn which treatment is best suited for their needs.
