“My work is special to me because of how many lives I can positively impact. As a dentist, I stay on the forefront of my patients’ oral health, which undoubtedly affects their overall health. I aide in the screening and prevention of many life-threatening health problems, including infections or oral cancer, by providing state of the art diagnostics. In addition, I am able to alleviate dental pain. All the while producing a gorgeous smile.”
Dr. Culler was born and raised in Camden, SC – just northeast of Columbia. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of South Carolina. Upon completion of college, his path led him to our beautiful city of Charleston, where he attended The James B. Edwards MUSC College of Dental Medicine and earned his license in 2017.
While a student at MUSC, Dr. Culler worked as a research assistant and apprentice in the implant prosthodontics clinic and developed a passion for the cutting-edge skills of CAD/CAM and 3-D printed restorations.
Dr. Culler has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education courses and advanced training in the fields of surgical implant dentistry and digital smile design. Through his research and professional learning, he is able to perform these procedures with extreme precision and attention to detail, offering unparallel services to his patients.
He created a vision for a practice where he could provide comprehensive patient centered care with the latest techniques, while using Leading Edge technology to give each patient the highest quality care. Over the past few years, he has brought this vision to fruition.
Away from the office, Dr. Culler enjoys family time with his lovely wife, Ashley, their daughter, Evelyn, and their two dogs, Charlie and Choco. In September, they will be welcoming their first son to the family. You can find them regularly attending the Mount Pleasant Farmer's Market, strolling the Old Village, frequenting Alhambra Hall and Pitt Street bridge. He loves golfing, tending to his impressive house plant collection, hunting for shark teeth at the beach and staying active with his family. Family is everything for Dr. Culler.

While we were planning out our office vibe, we chose to embody a bit of our personalities. From the soothing wall colors and warm flooring, the plants distributed throughout, and the artwork from local artists displayed on the walls.
Our goal is to help you feel at ease so you can put your trust in us to maintain your optimum oral health.
"My first two visits to Shem Creek Dental have been nothing less than excellent. The professional and friendly staff make you feel comfortable knowing that most people have a fear of the dentist. There is no pressure to complete any treatment that is diagnosed, instead, the doctor and his team choose to educate you with tools that allow you to see their findings. If you have insurance questions the team has the answers. I would highly recommend Dr Culler and his staff for all your dental care."
"I love this place. I have never had a better dental experience than those I had at Shem Creek Dental. I was somewhat apprehensive initially given some experiences I've had in Mt. Pleasant as a girl of color. But these people are some of the kindest, warmest and most authentic that I've come across in this field. Dottie the hygienist is the best. I don't think it gets any better than her. My dentist, Dr. Culler, is a great guy and a wonderful dentist and his dental assistant is as well. Thank you all so much. Please continue the exceptional service."
"Today was my first time visiting after being referred by a good friend. It was such a positive experience. All the ladies and gents came around to the front desk at the beginning and end of the visit to introduce themselves. I was having crown work, so a two hour visit. Dr. Culler and his assistant immediately put me at ease. His hands are very gentle and not once did I feel any slight discomfort while he was working on the tooth. He explained each part of the procedure giving me breaks by removing the rubber mouth opener when he could see I needed a rest. I’m actually looking forward to my follow up visit in two weeks to get the permanent crown. p.s. They even allow you to choose the radio station...70,s Road Trip!!"
"This place is absolutely awesome. Dr. Culler and his staff are incredible! A lot of people have serious reservations about going to the dentist, but fear no more. Every part of the process was smooth. The X-rays were easy, cleaning was very thorough and the hygienist was extremely informative, and Dr. Culler was highly knowledgeable and personable. I almost want to go back already!"
"I love Shem Creek Dental! Dr. Culler and his team were so welcoming and kind. I never felt like they were rushing to get the next patient in. The hygienist took her time and explained what she was seeing with my X-rays and photos. It’s often difficult to feel comfortable in a dentist’s office, but Dr Culler and his team have mastered it!"
"Shem Creek has done an excellent job with my oral care. I have a more difficult case involving implants and gum resorption. Through my treatment they have been excellent and transparent in meeting my dental goals! I have been really impressed so far."
"Had a great visit today for a cleaning and check up. I felt like Dr Cullers was honest about my needs and was not pressuring me to get something done that wasn’t necessary. Dr and hygienist were both very helpful with answering questions and I felt comfortable talking about my dental issues with them. Thank you!"
"Love this practice! Great for children and adults. Prompt, kind, and excellent service."
"Dr. Culler is awesome! He helped with some sensitivity I was having from a prior filling. Although an easy fix of sanding down where the filling was too high on my bite, he was meticulous about it and made sure it was just perfect before he let me leave. I walked out feeling no sensitivity."
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
