Dr. Boyne completed her two year residency at the University Hospital and Medical College of Georgia, where she received the Outstanding Hospital Service award for pediatric dentistry. She has been in private practice since 1996, and takes continuing education courses each year, while keeping up with the latest advances in technology.

Martha graduated from Northwestern High School in 1976 and York Technical College in 1977. She is married to Jake Stevenson who is retired from Comporium Communications. Martha started her career in dentistry in 1983 and joined Dr. Boyne's team in February, 2000. She is the "team leader", the "Second Mom", and formerly "The Cavity Clown". She enjoys time at the beach, shopping, home decorating, and spoiling those precious grand babies.
Jacki graduated from Northwestern High School in 1994, attended nursing school for a short time but decided dental hygiene was going to be her career choice. She graduated from York Technical College in 2000 and immediately joined our team. She is the senior hygienist in our office. Since she enjoys shopping so much, it's her job to make sure we have all the dental supplies we need. She is the ordering "queen" and a true asset to the team. She is married to Tri Smith who is employed at BlueDot Medical and they have one son, Jackson. She enjoys DIY home projects, Shopping, and hanging out with her little one...Jackson.
Mary Beth graduated from Rock Hill High School in 1994 and from the Dental Hygiene program at York Technical College in 2001. She became part of our team in the summer of 2001. She is a single mom to her three children Mary Katherine, Hunter and Matthew. All of them are involved in various sports so she has no free time for hobbies right now. Spending time with her family is her hobby and she wouldn't change it for the world. She is our "entertainment" on a daily basis and is a pleasure to have on our team.
Jodi graduated from Northwestern High School in 1999. She attended the Art Institute in Charlotte, NC as well as York Technical College. Jodi is married to Jamie Howell who is employed by EPS. She has two daughters Macey Tate and Piper and they tend to occupy most of her time. When she's not "being a mom" she enjoys exercise, DIY projects, and family time. You'll always remember Jodi because she's the one who collects your money...ha-ha. She is the most "laid back" person in the world and her even temperament is truly an asset in her job.
Jennifer graduated from Fort Mill High School in 1993. She attended York Technical College and graduated in 2003 from the dental hygiene program and joined our team in 2004. Jennifer is married to Chad Towell who is employed by Allied Group in Fort Mill, SC. She has three boys, Cayden, Camden and Copeland. Since there is no free time when you have three little boys, Jennifer can be found after work at the baseball field, in the yard, or inside trying to find a little "quiet girl time" in her house full of males. Jennifer would love to have been a country music singer, but since singing is NOT one of her talents, she is just going to keep cleaning teeth in our office and hope that one day Jason Aldean will call her for a dental appointment.
