Dr. Linda Bridges graduated with her Associates of Arts degree from Oxford College in 1987 and went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts from Emory University in 1989. She was awarded her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Northwestern University School of Dentistry in 1999, and afterwards, moved to Greenville, South Carolina where she would go on to open her state of the art practice, Southeastern Dental.
Dr. Bridges is a strong believer in continuing education for both herself and her team. Under her leadership, the entire staff, including Dr. Bridges, continually strives to improve upon the best products and techniques offered at the practice. She is also committed to cutting edge dental technology and research.
She’s an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The South Carolina Dental Association, and a small number of other local and regional research groups.
Dr. Bridges is also a passionate advocate for dental patients of all backgrounds. She was an early implementer of digital radiography and the use of mercury-free restorations. These have been a standard of Southeastern Dental since it’s inception. Dr. Bridges is passionate about dental products that are bio-compatible and mimic natural tooth structure.
Dr. Bridges is married to Gene Bridges, with whom she shares the joy of two beautiful children. Her ultimate dream is for her children to follow in her footsteps, or at the least, be as happy in their profession as she is. In her free time, Dr. Bridges enjoys working out, traveling, reading, and spending as much time as possible with her family.
Valerie joined the Southeastern Dental team in August 2018. She is a Registered Dental Hygienist, however, her journey in the dental field started as a pediatric dental assistant. After 4 years of working with children, she felt encouraged to further her education in such a rewarding career that promotes dental health awareness. Born and raised in Costa Rica, she moved to the US at age 16, married her best friend in 2017 and together they have 2 fur babies, Benji and Riley. Valerie loves art, spontaneous getaways, and having family over for coffee.
Spanish being her first language, she is driven to help those with language barriers. Valerie believes strongly in the Golden Rule-“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, and that when compassion is shown to others, it creates a chain reaction.
Marie joined the Southeastern Dental team in November 2018 as the Patient Care Coordinator. She decided to dive into the dental field in 2015, after spending over 15 years in the restaurant/retail world! Marie has enjoyed her big career change and really loves being able to assist our patients with any of their scheduling needs. She treats each and every person with such care and compassion- making everyone in her daily life feel like family.
Marie spends her spare time with her husband, 2 kids, and goofy German Shepherd, Jake. They love having family game night and having dinners with friends. She is also a little league cheerleading coach! You can always find Marie with a smile on her face and ready to help in any way possible.
“Doctor Bridges is a fabulous dentist. The office staff are always welcoming and provide a great atmosphere for their patients. I have been using Southeastern Dental as my provider since a came to the Greenville area and have had extensive dental work done. The whole team there always exceed my expectations.”
“Awesome Experience. Tammy, Katie, Linda, and Natalia were all extremely courteous and professional. I was expecting just the initial exam as a new patient and that I would need to reschedule for my cleaning at a later date. You were able to squeeze in the cleaning in the same visit avoiding a return trip. I was also able to get my trays done.Look forward to my next visit.Again thanks for a great experience.”
