Dr. Alex J. Culp
I am one of the few dual-trained orthodontists and pediatric dentists in the country. I bring a caring and compassionate nature to make a profound and positive impact on the care of you and your child. My motivation for pursuing dual training comes from the inspiration I find in the precious moments I share with patients and their families.
A Rock Hill native, I grew up as the son of a general dentist and a dental hygienist. Given my family’s involvement with dentistry, it was not uncommon for my family to discuss dental topics at a young age. These early conversations lead my identical twin brother and me to pursue careers in dentistry. Following dental school, I practiced general dentistry with my father and brother prior to deciding to pursue specialty training.
While pursuing a two-year residency in Pediatric Dentistry, I completed training in preventive and therapeutic care for infants and children through adolescence. This training had a large emphasis on how I manage patients with medical complexities and special health care needs, as well as those with dental trauma. Through this program, I completed research regarding pulpal therapy for primary dentition and presented it at the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s Annual Conference. During my final year of residency, I served my program as chief resident.
Following the completion of my first residency, I entered a three-year residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics where my studies focused on orthodontic care for both children and adults. Through this program, I conducted research focused on craniofacial growth and obtained a master’s degree. While in my final year of residency, I served as chief resident.
I have successfully completed the board certification process through the American Board of Orthodontics and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, thus receiving designation as both a board-certified orthodontist and a board-certified pediatric dentist. I maintain Diplomate status through both organizations. In addition to private practice, I serve the Medical University of South Carolina’s Department of Orthodontics in the capacity of Clinical Associate Professor. My commitment to collaborative and patient-centered care and my commitment to academic involvement makes me a natural fit for the well-established practice of Burrow Welchel & Culp Orthodontics.
