Dr. James Michael Williams

Dr. J. Michael Williams was born in Atlanta, Ga. and grew up in Louisville, Ky., but he never lost his southern roots. He received his undergraduate and a graduate degree from the University of Louisville. As a seasoned provider for over 30 years, he enjoys working with patients of all age groups and strives to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible during their visit. Dr. Williams was inspired to enter the field of dentistry by his grandfather, who was a general dentist in Atlanta. He would travel frequently to Atlanta to visit his grandfather’s practice and realized the unique opportunity dentistry offered to positively impact the life of patients. As a general dentist, he is a master of many skills, but thoroughly enjoys doing anterior cosmetic dentistry, veneers and even dental makeovers to help boost patient’s confidence by improving their smile.

Dr. Williams strives to be a life-long learner and stays on the cutting edge of dental treatment by taking several continuing education courses throughout the year. He is committed to ensuring a positive, comfortable experience for the patient while visiting the office and looks forward to fostering relationships with the Bluffton community. Outside of the office, Dr. Williams enjoys trying new restaurants and spending time with his wife of over 35 years, Jeanie, and sons, Aaron and David.
