Dr. Oppenheimer was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He enjoys visiting his remaining family there every summer. He met his wife Samantha while they were undergratuates at UNC-CH and they were married in 1990. Samantha is from the east coast of North Carolina and the couple knew they wanted a coastal environment in which to live and raise a family. After Dr. Oppenheimer finished his periodontal education, they were thrilled to find Hilton Head Island and relocate here. Hilton Head Island has proven to be a great place to live, work, and play. Their sons, Adam and Mark, grew up here attending local schools until leaving for college. The empty nest is filled by a much loved golden retriever named Lilly Bear. Dr. Oppenheimer loves living in the Lowcountry where he enjoys all water activities especially fishing and boating. He also plays tennis in the local USTA league.

Dr. Ramsey was born and raised in Stamford, Connecticut. While she will always consider herself an “east-coaster”, she and her fiancé decided to make a lifestyle change and relocate from the city of Boston and move to the beautiful island of Hilton Head. Dr. Ramsey’s journey to becoming a periodontist stemmed from a childhood accident, and from those experiences she knew she wanted to be a part of the dental medical community. Dr. Ramsey and her fiancé, Dylan, are looking forward to their wedding in the fall and eventually starting a family and creating new family traditions in the Lowcountry. When she isn’t working, Dr. Ramsey loves riding horses, playing guitar and her newest hobby is learning how to surf.
