Dr. Wehman is a caring dentist who uses modern technology along with traditional dental procedures to give his patients the high level of dental care they deserve. Dr. Wehman and his staff work together to make the patient feel comfortable during their dental procedures with no lectures or putdowns.
We know it can be a difficult and sometimes scary decision to commit to correcting problems with your oral health. We want you to feel comfortable and know that using new technology, we can shorten your time in the office allowing you to attend to the many demands you have in your life.
Dr. Jake Wehman grew up in Irmo, South Carolina and graduated from Irmo High School. He then migrated to Charleston, South Carolina and graduated from The Citadel in 1998. He remained in Charleston and earned his dental degree from The Medical University of South Carolina in 2002.
Dr. Wehman is a proud member of multiple dental groups including: The American Dental Association, The Academy of General Dentistry, The South Carolina Dental Association, and The Greater Columbia Dental Society.
Dr. Wehman does a great deal of advanced education. He has received basic and advanced training at the Sirona Dental Academy in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry in Scottsdale, Arizona. This training involved using the CEREC 3D method, a technology for creating natural and durable ceramic teeth restorations. Dr. Wehman attended basic and advanced training with Invisalign Technologies to create beautiful smiles without using the traditional metal braces.
Dr. Wehman also believes in giving back to his community. He volunteers at the Richland County Children's Dental Clinic in Columbia. He also works with the Smiles for a Lifetime school-based dental clinic in Dillon, South Carolina. These clinics are located in an area where less fortunate children were rarely receiving any comprehensive dental care before these clinics were founded.
Our search for a new family dentist began a little over a year ago upon returning to this area after retiring from the Air Force. Our grown children were also recent arrivals to Columbia so we included their needs into our research and decision-making process. The criteria required were a professional capable of handling several medical needs in addition to our dental care. Being on a fixed income now, it was also very important to find a dentist in our insurance network; someone who would not only file all of our claims, but was also willing to work with us financially. We met with Dr. Wehman and his staff twice and, after thoughtful consideration, chose them above all others - a decision that has made my family very happy!
“The dental office is quaint and nestled among the trees conveniently located across the street from Dorn VA Medical enter. Dr. Wehman has a calm chair-side manner and the rest of his care-giving team know how to put people at ease. In fact, the whole environment is very relaxing. While Dr. Wehman attends to your dental needs, patients can observe squirrels scampering through the trees and birds splashing in a birdbath outside. If this isn't calming enough, the large fish tank between dental rooms will do the trick!
“To say we are pleased with out dental care is an understatement. Dr. Wehman and his caring staff of professionals under the circumstances make the thought and often outright fear of going to the dentist an enjoyable experience. We highly recommend Dr. Wehman and his team to everyone!”
