Dr. R. Carson Kight, D.M.D.
It has been my pleasure to spend the last 26 years as Office Manager for our practice. Our patients and team members have become an extended family for me. I enjoy the interaction of assisting out patients in understanding and obtaining the best results from their insurance coverage. In my “spare Time” I enjoy gardening, listening to music, reading and taking art classes.
I have worked in general dentistry for 14 years. I enjoy the day to day interactions with patients and families of all ages. I have found the process of helping patient with their scheduling and financial needs to be very rewarding. I strive to make all interactions at out front desk as pleasurable and streamlined as possible. I love the dental team I work with and appreciate the effortless flow from the clinical to administrative side. I have been happily married for 16 years and in our spare time we enjoy spending time with our two children at the lake.

I have had the pleasure of working in dentistry for 18 years. After completing the dental assisting program at Midlands Technical College, I worked as a Certified Dental Assistant in the field of orthodontics for several years. I went on to further my education in health sciences and dental hygiene while working as an adjunct faculty member in the dental assisting program. I worked in Columbia before moving to Aiken to start a family. I have been a hygienist for Dr. Kight for more than a decade. I treasure the relationships I have built with my patients throughout the years and enjoy keeping abreast of the latest in continuing education. I am fortunate to work alongside an amazing dentist and dental team. I have been married for over ten years and have two wonderful young boys.

My dental journey began in 1988! I worked as a part-time dental assistant while obtaining a degree in Marketing and Communication. After graduating, I moved to Hilton Head and worked for several years as a Diatach Dental trade show representative. Life events moved me back to the CSRA where I worked for a periodontal office, orthodontic practice and the Augusta Chronicle in advertising. After experiencing several jobs involving marketing and communication, I realized I missed the small office and family feel of a dental practice and felt led to pursue hygiene. In 2001, I graduated from Midlands Technical college with a degree in dental hygiene. My first job was with a cosmetic dental practice where I stayed for 15 years until Dr. Miles retired. I was given an opportunity to work with Dr. Kight and I am thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic team. My life outside the office has been blessed with two energetic, funny, determined and bust little boys, a perfectly behaved dog, and a husband that is a true blessing beyond imagination.

For me, this dental journey began the summer before I began high school and has continued off and on until I became a permanent fixture in 2012. I have had many other careers during my time away, but I am always called back here to be with my family…and not just my mother and sister. When away from the work day I enjoy spending time with my three fur children, Penny, Andrew and Jet, woodworking, gardening, crocheting, and participating in various missions with my beloved church family.
