Using the latest dental technology and treatment options, we ensure the highest quality care, while our playful office atmosphere makes families comfortable and puts children at ease. Serving the dental needs of the children of Chapin, South Carolina and the surrounding cities of Columbia, Lexington and Newberry, SC.

LMPD is the absolute best with all of my kids, they make our experience quick yet thorough and fun! My 4 year old looks forward to going every six months and my twin toddlers are learning all about the importance of good dental hygiene as they recently had their first appointment. We are never disappointed with the great staff here.

Tori and Lake Murray Pediatric Dentistry are great! Tori makes my little boy so comfortable and is so thorough with his cleaning and exam. Dr. Warnock was so helpful and answered all my questions. We got in and out so fast! Tori and LMPD are the best!

Absolutely amazing dentist! So nice and polite. Great with kids. Best dentist around. Dr. Warnock takes amazing care of all four of our children and is a magician at tooth restoration! He repairs broken teeth and makes the tooth look better than before! I’m so impressed and grateful for all he does. All dental hygienists are so sweet and take great care of our babies teeth. Can’t recommend enough!

Super awesome!! Very convenient to Chapin, wonderful staff and nurses! We love it! My son was scared he had a cavity (which he did) but the nurses and Dr Warknock were so sweet and caring and reassured him and he was totally fine going in and getting his teeth cleaned and very comfortable about going back to get the cavity filled. He said they were very cool. I’m very happy we have found a new dentist!!
