Company Bio

Our Journey

Welcome to Solomon Dental Management, where our commitment to excellence in dental care is as deep-rooted as our history. Our story began in 1979 when Dr. Fred Solomon opened the doors of Solomon Family Dentistry in the Sangaree location. With a vision to fill the gap in quality patient care within the community, Dr. Solomon set out to create a practice that was as patient-focused as it was dedicated to excellence. His belief in being readily available for patients has been a cornerstone of our practice, exemplified by his work ethic—Dr. Fred Solomon still passionately serves our community six days a week.

Our Philosophy

At Solomon Dental Management, we firmly believe that the foundation of great patient care is built upon the quality of our employees. Recognizing this, we have committed ourselves to not only attract but also retain the finest dental professionals in the industry. Our approach is simple yet profound: provide our employees with the utmost level of care, and they will, in turn, extend the same to our patients.
