Our Focus Is On You

Empowering You
The mouth serves as the entrance to the body. Every food we eat, every word we say, and every smile we flash ends up in our mouths. It is an honor for us to be a part of your journey to a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile!

Breaking Down the Overwhelming
Do you find some dental visits intimidating? Being aware that we will take time to explain to you what any problems mean and what we can do to help prevent you from becoming overwhelmed is the best protection against being overwhelmed.

Meeting People Where They Are
We all have questions, concerns, fears, worries, goals, ideas, and desires about our oral health and future. We want to hear your story and develop a treatment plan that works for you and your budget.

We also perform emergency dentist services that include bonding, root canals, crowns, and bridges. As a local dentist, we create lifelong relationships with our patients and their families and work to ensure that they receive treatments in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Dr. Dunlap and our team invite you to schedule an appointment by calling 864-626-6322 and experience why our patients think Whole Life Dental is the best dentist in Greenwood.

Ben Dunlap, DMD

Dr. Dunlap opened Whole Life Dental with two missions: to provide access to care for anyone in need and to meet his patients where they are in their journey to health and happiness. Dr. Dunlap agreed to provide some basic emergency and maintenance care for the patients in need. But what small amount of work he could provide, although helpful, was a mere fraction of the actual need in the community. As an effort to address this lack of care, Whole Life Initiative was born.

Hi, my name is Norma. I love spending time with my family. A few of my hobbies are shopping, traveling, and hiking. My favorite vacation spot is Destin, Florida.


Procedures Coordinator

Hi, I’m Terri and I am a single mother that has lived in Greenwood most of my life. I have a handsome son and beautiful daughter-in-law who have given me two beautiful grandson’s–RJ and Loic. My grandchildren hold my heart in their tiny hands and their tiny smiling faces light up my day!

I enjoy traveling just about anywhere at any given time, with Greece being on my bucket list! I enjoy spending hours in antique shops, going to festivals, and horseback riding. I have a chihuahua named Harley that I love dearly—he brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart after working through long stressful days!


HR Director & Media Specialist

Greetings! I am Angela Vinson and I have the driest sarcasm and best “dad jokes” around. I have a creative eye and enjoy producing and designing all types of media–ranging from print media to live production. In April 2022, I married my husband–who I met on Facebook Dating during the 2020 pandemic. My hobbies include spending time with my husband and fur baby (Trevor) watching old television shows and going fishing.


Hygientist Assistant

Hello, my name is Alexus, AKA “Dirty”. I am a mixed breed–one of a kind. I enjoy getting my eyelashes done. Some of my hobbies include eating and sleeping. I enjoy going to the beach and spending time with my niece. Once you meet me, you’ll never forget me–I leave a little sparkle everywhere I go!


Patient Flow Coordinator

My real name is Kim, but people call me KG, Smiles Giles, or Spike—I answer to anything. I’m your go-to girl and always on the go. Between 2 jobs, family and loads of friends, I try to find some spare time to ride Harleys and enjoy the lake life. My quiet time is cutting my grass and doing yard work. I love to dance. I volunteer at the Voters Election Poll during the election times. Everybody needs to get out and vote and let your voice be heard! The string to my heart is my one and only grandson. My goal in life is to always help and encourage others—to always meet them where they are at in life. I live life to the fullest. I’m as crazy as they come, so come and see me at WLD. P.S. I am a hoarder.



I was born and raised in Greenwood County but returned to Greenwood only 7 years ago. I am a former Military Reservist of 371st Chemical Company. I am a vivacious mother of 3 children and 11 wonderful grandchildren. I attend Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church, and when I am not enjoying my family, I like to cook and bake. I try my hand at sewing, wood crafting, and gardening.
