CHARLESTON, SC – Paul T. Davis, DMD, has been elected as the medical professions representative to the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Board of Trustees for the 7th Congressional District.
“MUSC has had a profoundly positive impact, not only on my life, but on the lives of so many others in our state and around the country,” Davis said. “I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to give back to the university by serving on its Board of Trustees.”
He attended Wofford College on a golf scholarship and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1994. He earned his doctorate from the MUSC College of Dental Medicine in 1999, where he also completed an advanced education in General Dentistry residency.

Davis is a member of the Florence Dental Society and is the past president of the Pee Dee District Dental Association. He has served on the board of governors for the South Carolina Dental Association and is a member of the South Carolina Delegation to the American Dental Association.
At a local education level, Davis served on the board of trustees for All Saints Episcopal Day School and Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School, and is on the dental advisory board for Florence-Darlington Technical College. He volunteers his services at local medical clinics as well as participating in medical missions abroad. He is a member at First Presbyterian Church in Florence where he has served as an elder. A resident of Darlington, Davis and his wife, Tabatha, have two children, Haley and Thomas.
