Collin Chavous, DMD

Dr. Collin Chavous was born and raised in Greenville, SC. His junior year of high school he was awarded a full scholarship to Clemson University where he went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering as well as a Business Administration minor while pursuing pre-med requirements to attend dental school. Dr. Chavous knew he wanted to be a dentist as a child. At a young age, he committed himself to excellence in academics; his teachers in middle school would call him “Dr. Collin” as everyone who knew him knew he was committed to becoming a dentist “one day.”

Upon graduating from Clemson University, that “one day” came when Dr. Chavous received an acceptance letter to Midwestern University, a private graduate school in Downers Grove, IL. where he earned his Doctorate in Dental Medicine.

He was honored to be accepted into an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency through NYU at LECOM School of Dental Medicine in Lakewood Ranch, FL. There, he was able to further his knowledge of dental medicine and specialize in skills such as implant dentistry, orthodontics, oral surgery, and more specialty dentistry opportunities which have directly impacted his career. Dr. Chavous prides himself on the attention he gives each patient and the above-and-beyond expectation he has of himself to deliver exceptional quality care. He wants his patients to know he cares to be their dentist for life. Dr. Chavous sets himself apart by prioritizing patient trust, thoroughly educating his patients on their short and long-term options and offering a conservative approach to dentistry that aims to provide long-term, predictable success. Every single morning, Dr. Chavous wakes up grateful and humbled to get to practice dentistry and help others smile confidently - that dream he set way back when. His goal for every patient is to create a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.

Dr. Chavous and his wife Sarah were high school sweethearts, who married in 2013. Dr. Chavous is known to talk a lot about his pride and joys — his two “full-of-life” boys — Colton and Peyton. Dr. Chavous enjoys spending time outdoors with his family, loves college football, and fun fact – ironically, he has a huge sweet tooth. Every spare minute he has, you can find him playing with his sons.

Dr. Chavous is honored to be a part of the Waterside Dental team in Venice Island, which has a long-standing reputation of exceptional care that is second-to-none.
