Victoria Tatum (DMD, PA)

Dr. Tatum is a native South Carolinian, born in Anderson, SC. She has lived in many places in North and South Carolina and a few in Virginia. Her father, Jack Tatum, worked in the textile industry after graduating from Clemson University. When Dr. Tatum was 12 years old, she had her braces put on and her love for dentistry began. From that age, she new she wanted to be a dentist and never strayed from that goal.

During high school in Rutherfordton, NC, Vicki was nominated for The North Carolina School of Science and Math (NCSSM). She was chosen to go there and be a part of the first graduating class of this new, innovative, public boarding school.

Upon graduating from NCSSM, she received a full academic scholarship to attend Wofford College. She matriculated from Wofford with a BS in Math, graduating Summa Cum Laude and was chosen for Phi Beta Kappa. Two weeks after graduation she entered The Medical University of SC (MUSC). Starting in the summer of 1986, Vicki entered the Class of 1990, College of Dental Medicine, MUSC. She graduated from there second in her class and was chosen for Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU).

After graduation from Dental School, Dr. Tatum decided to attend Emory University for a 1-year general practice residency. She was trying to make a decision about whether to go into practice as a general dentist or an oral surgeon. After the year at Emory, spending much time working in the hospital and with the oral surgery residents, she decided to go into private practice as a general dentist.

Since July 1991, Dr. Tatum has been practicing on Courtenay Drive in Charleston, SC, less than a half mile from MUSC where she attended dental school. She taught part-time at the dental school for 6 years and was elected president of the Alumni Association of the College of Dental Medicine for a 1-year term.

Dr. Tatum has been a member of many professional organizations, some of which are; The American Dental Association (ADA), The SC Dental Association where she served as a delegate, the Charleston Dental Society, The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and The St. Andrews Rotary Club.

She believes in volunteering, and along with her community involvement with Rotary, she volunteers at two free dental clinics, The John’s Island Wellness House and East Cooper Community Outreach Dental Clinic.

She and both of her chair side assistants graduated from Las Vegas Institute posterior esthetic dentistry course. She and her staff attend annual continuing education classes to remain up-to-date, to provide her patients with the latest technology in dentistry.

Starting at age 12, Dr. Tatum has always wanted to do what she is doing today. She constantly redefines her goals to provide beautiful, quality dentistry in a relaxed, educational atmosphere for those who seek it. Her record shows the excellent training she has received. Her attitude shows that she actually loves what she does.

Celeste Granger (DMD)

Dr. Celeste Granger is originally from a small town near Dayton, OH. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ohio State University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. While attending Ohio State, she discovered her passion for dentistry through her involvement with Give Kids a Smile. After graduating, she immediately matriculated into dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina.

During dental school, she met Dr. Vicki Tatum. Dr. Granger began regularly shadowing at Tatum Dentistry and fell in love with the wonderful staff and patients. She realized that this office was her perfect fit; where she could work in a comfortable and inviting environment! She is excited to be a part of and work with the best dental team in Charleston, SC.

Dr. Granger is passionate about volunteering and giving back. Through dental school and now as a dentist, she continues to volunteer at North Charleston Free Clinic. She went on a mission trip to Jamaica during her fourth year of school and is looking forward to continued trips in the future.

She is a member of the American Dental Association, South Carolina Dental Association, American Academy of General Dentistry and American Academy of Women Dentists.

“Dr. G” currently resides downtown Charleston. Outside the office, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, watching college football (Go Buckeyes!), and exercising at MUSC! She loves to be outside and go to the beach, too!

She is now accepting new patients and looks forward to meeting you soon!
