Meet Carlisle Vason, D.M.D.
Dr. Carlisle Vason has been around Vason Family Dentistry his entire life! After graduating high school at Westminster, he attended The University of Georgia, where he earned degrees in Finance and International Affairs, graduating Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and Phi Kappa Phi. He was also inducted into Blue Key Honor Society. He continued his studies at the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta, where he earned the Junior Esthetic Dentistry Award and the Senior Comprehensive Care Case Award. He was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon national dental honor society, a distinction reserved for the top 12% of each graduating class. He also received his advanced dental training and education from Pankey Institute.
After dental school graduation, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Residency at the Charlie Norwood VA Hospital in Augusta, where he received additional training in comprehensive care, implant placement, IV conscious sedation, as well as various oral and periodontal surgeries. He is excited to carry on the Vason Family Dentistry legacy of trust and quality as he incorporates these procedures into the dental office.
Dr. Vason is an avid reader and learner. On any given evening he can be found reading either a fun novel or a journal article about the latest advances in dentistry. One of the things he likes most about dentistry is the speed of innovation and change in the field, which affords him opportunities to develop and grow as a clinician. He particularly enjoys cosmetic dentistry and dental implant surgeries.
Dr. Vason met his wife, Kelsey, at UGA, and they enjoy exercising, camping, and cooking together. In January 2021 they welcomed their first child, Shepherd into their family. Dr. Vason is thoroughly enjoying his new fatherhood role. He particularly enjoys Saturday morning family runs with Kelsey, “Shep” in the stroller, and their dog, Georgia, in tow.
He has been especially impacted by dental mission trips with Medical Campus Outreach to Haiti and Romania. He and Kelsey served together on several trips. Kelsey, a Nurse Practitioner, would triage patients prior to Dr. Vason treating them in the dental chair. This experience culminated in the opportunity for Dr. Vason to co-lead the trip as a senior dental student, and to return as an attending provider during his residency.
Dr. Vason is a member of the American Dental Association, The Georgia Dental Association, The Academy of General Dentistry, and The International Congress of Oral Implantology.
