Mary Alice Cummings

Mary Alice Cummings or "MAC", joined Gentle Family Dentistry in October after relocating to Asherville, NC where she was born and raised. MAC graduated from A.C. Reynolds in 2011 and continued her education at the College of Charleston. She studied biology and psychology and graduated from the Honors College there in 2015. MAC loves to smile and wants the patients at Gentle Family Dentistry to feel the same way! She aspires to be a dentist herself one day and enjoys learning from Dr. Bowman-Hensley and the rest of the team. Outside of the office, MAC enjoys spending time with her family and doggy, Chipper, kayaking and going to the beach any chance she can. We are pleased to announce that Mary Alice was accepted to Dental School at Medical Univesity of South Carolina. She began her studies in June 2017 and we wish her much success in her endeavor. We stay in contact often with her to give her encouragement and we hope to see her back here one day as a new dentist!
