Jeffrey C. Bauer, D.M.D.

I'm so happy to be practicing dentistry in the lowcountry! It's such a wonderful place to live and raise a family. My family and I relocated to Bluffton in 2010 after I had practiced dentistry in the Pittsburgh area for 11 years. I graduated from Denison University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1993 and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1998. Upon graduation, I completed a general residency at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio. My staff and I maintain dental excellence by completing several hours of continuing education to keep our practice on the cutting edge of dentistry. I am passionate about dentistry. Whether I'm doing a general exam or helping someone look their best using Invisalign, or Zoom whitening, I strive to be the best dentist I can be.

When I'm not in the office I enjoy spending time with my wife Gretchen and our three children Maddy, JC and Charlotte. We attend Low Country Community Church in Bluffton and our kids go to Hilton Head Christian Academy.  We play tennis and golf together and enjoy going to the beach. I love the outdoors and I try to utilize everything this wonderful area has to offer.  I must not forget to mention my dogs Sidney and Crosby. Yes, I am a Pittsburgh Penguins fan!

I look forward to meeting you, and I will do my very best as your dentist.
