Meet the Dentist

Dr. James Tankersley, Dentist

Dr. Tankersley was born in Greenville, S.C. and was raised in Greer. He was exposed to the world of dentistry his whole life as his father is an oral surgeon in Greenville. Spending his time in high school helping out around the office, he decided to go into dentistry during those years. Dr. Tankersley graduated Riverside high school and attended Clemson with a major in Biological sciences and a minor in Psychology where he graduated Magna cum Laude in 2014.
He attended the Medical University of South Carolina dental school and fell in love with general dentistry. Attending mission trips in Ecuador helped hone in his skills as well as being able to help underserved populations and learn how dentistry can be a great tool to serve the population with. After Graduating dental school in 2018, Dr. Tankersley worked for 4 years in Spartanburg mainly with children. He joined ProGrin at the start of 2023 and has been working in most of the offices since then.
As a graduate of Clemson, Dr. Tankersley is an avid Tigers fan as well as a New England Patriots fan as he was indoctrinated to love Boston sports teams as a kid. In his spare time when it is not football season, he enjoys golfing, fishing, and during turkey season, hunting. He has two dogs, one lab/hound mix, and one barbet. He loves to spoil them and always loves to hear about his patients’ dogs.
