Dr. James Tankersley
Dr. James Tankersley is originally from Greenville, South Carolina and he obtained his dental license from the Medicaid University of South Carolina. When Dr. Tankersley was younger, he was inspired to be a pediatric dentist because of his own dentist. He wanted to make the same impact for kiddos.
Dr. Tankersley has been practice dentistry for 2 years and is excited to be a part of Sparkle City Dental. His mission is to provide the best care to his patients. When he is not working, Dr. Tankersley enjoys golfing, fishing and hiking.
Dr. Namaisha Mandala
My mission in healthcare is to provide my patients with the best dental care possible and enrich the lives of my team members by helping them to be their very best. I also find it both personally and professionally satisfying to help educate my patients on the benefits of properly maintained oral health. Coming from a middle-class background, I understand how dental care often takes a backseat to the many responsibilities of everyday life. I am dedicated to correcting the lack of public information about the connection between oral health and overall health.
In my work, I have learned how important empathy is for a dentist. Empathizing with my patients helps me embark on a journey based on trust and building interpersonal relationships. Empathy aids in understanding my patients’ ideologies, inhibitions, and interests so I can provide them with truly exceptional treatment. Seeing the gleam of satisfaction in my patients’ eyes continually drives me to improve my skills and expertise in the field of dentistry.
