The Origin of Chapman Dental
About our Dentist
Dr. Alex Chapman is a native of Spartanburg SC. He attended Spartanburg Methodist College, then moved to Charleston SC to attend the College of Charleston. He then attended the Medical University of South Carolina for dental school. He is a road course driving instructor, in short, he teaches people how to drive on race tracks. He is a BMW and Corvette owner and maintains his track / street cars himself. Sometimes in between patients, he may be found playing on his drumset…which may or may not be at the office. Dr. Chapman believes strongly in doing the best dentistry that can be done for his patients. He uses the latest in technology, and will offer every option to fix your teeth, not only the ones that are convenient for him. He does not rush through procedures, is very gentle and patient.
Meet our Friendly Staff,

When she’s not at Chapman Dental, she loves spending time with her husband and herd of pets including a dog, a bearded dragon named Puff from her time as a highschool biology teacher, and a cat named Layla (probably 4-5 other cats) whose name was inspired by a song by her favorite musician, Eric Clapton.

At Chapman Dental, we cater to patients without dental insurance. If you do not have dental insurance, please come see us, as you will find nowhere in Greenville that will work harder for you and your needs.
For patients who already have dental insurance, Chapman Dental does as a courtesy file your insurance claims for you. Remember, the dentist is your advocate, and no dental office will stand up for you to your insurance company as fiercely as Chapman Dental will. Do not let your insurance company make choices for your dental care. Make those choices yourself, and let our office help empower you to do it.
If you are going to an in network office and you lose your job, or for some reason your insurance lapses, you are out of luck. At our office, your dental care is not hinged around your insurance, so we are able to take care of you regardless.
Bottom line, please give us a chance to be your dental office. Few people who become our patients ever seek another office. It never hurts to come meet us and see what you think!
