Meet Our Team


Dr. Horecky

Dr. Eric C. Horecky  believes excellence in dentistry begins with a careful co-diagnosis and treatment plan to establish the goals he and his patients will achieve together. Communication and long-term relationships are important to Dr. Horecky.

Let us know what is on your mind and ask questions. We will help you realize an investment in yourself pays dividends for a lifetime.  We are caring, skilled professionals, dedicated to simplifying what is often a very complicated and confusing area of health care.

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. We focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.

In Dr. Horecky's free time, he loves to spend quality time with his two wonderful boys, Myers and Fulton.  He also enjoys taking advantage of our great Charleston weather out on the water.  Dr. H always pulls for his alma mater Ole Miss.

IMG_6269.jpgDr. Natalie Zuffi has maintained an interest in dental health care and wellness throughout her life.  Her favorite aspects of general dentistry are being able to take a comprehensive approach in treatment planning and building relationships with her patients of all ages.  She also has a particular passion for the artistic component of dentistry and patient education.

Dr. Zuffi received her professional education and training from leading institutions across the southeast.  She graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biology from the Univeristy of Virginia.  She then went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Medical College of Virginia where she graduated in the top of her class.  Dr Zuffi also completed training in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the Medical University of South Carolina serving as co-chief resident.

Dr. Zuffi is a native of Virginia but is very grateful to live in beautiful and charming Charleston.  In her spare time she can be found enjoying the outdoors (particulary at Sullivan's Island) or trying new restaurants downtown.  Besides dentistry, Dr. Zuffi has a passion for world travel.
