MICHAEL J. SKOVIRA, DDS
“It is a privilege sharing my passion for Dentistry with my patients. I’ve found that when it comes to wellness, prevention is key. When problems of the teeth and jaws occur, it’s important to intervene early. Oftentimes dental problems can lead to difficulties chewing and smiling. The better care I am able to provide allows my patients to enjoy eating and smiling without worry!”
Education and Experience
Dentistry is unique in that it blends science, engineering, and art with the personal relationships of healthcare. With a background in engineering and a special interest in healthcare, Dr. Skovira decided to pursue a career in Dentistry after realizing how much of a direct impact good Dentistry can have on people’s lives. He studied Biology and Chemistry at The State University of New York College at Geneseo, where he graduated with honors. He attended Dental School close to home at the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine.
His commitment to education above and beyond the requirements necessary has translated to better patient care. Dr. Skovira has trained across the country to provide dental services to those requiring complex restorative and surgical intervention. Outside the office, he is an Adjunct Faculty and clinical instructor for the College of Dental Medicine at MUSC training dental students in oral surgery at various clinics around the area. He has been seeing patients and practicing since 2011.
Family and Community
Dr. Skovira is married to Emily, a Speech-Language Pathologist. They have three beautiful young children; Luke, Grady & Madelyn. Dr. Skovira and his wife relocated to the Lowcountry from Western New York after his training. They enjoy spending time as a family of 5, traveling when possible, boating, and getting together with family and friends.
A history of military service…
Dentists of our practice have a long history of service with the Navy. Dr. Roger Stalb originally founded the practice in 1977 after he retired from serving with the Navy as a dentist. In 1995, Dr. George Kredich took over the practice after retiring from the Navy as well. At that time, the practice was located down Trolley Road from our current office, where we relocated in 2002.
Dr. Scott Kibler joined the practice in 2006 after continuing the legacy of naval service as a dental officer. He then purchased the practice in 2007 and changed the name to Old Trolley Dental Associates. Dr. Kredich continued working part-time with the practice until 2015, when he retired. During that same year, Dr. Michael Skovira joined the practice full-time.
