John is a graduate of Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina.
“We are eager to return to our hometown and excited to be a part of the community again. We look forward to seeing all the familiar faces, as well as some new ones,” says John.
Dr. Early joins Dr. Bill Laney and the experienced staff at Darlington Family Dentistry. Dr. Laney, a Cheraw native, has more than 40 years of dental experience in all facets of dentistry. He was among the first graduating class at the Medical University of South Carolina and has mainly in practiced in Hartsville and Cheraw.
