Dr. Amber Connar, DMD

She has spent time volunteering at multiple local dental clinics. She is an experienced dental practitioner who has worked with patients of all ages. With her bright personality and proven dental aptitude, she is a natural fit for the Cooper Cosmetic & Family Dentistry practice.

Dr. Connar is married to her college sweetheart, Casey. Together they enjoy boating, travelling, trying new restaurants, and taking their black lab Briar to the beach.

Dr. Jessica Peele, DDS

Having been interested in health careers in high school, Dr. Jessica "Jess" Peele's love for dentistry blossomed with an international volunteer trip to the Dominican Republic where she was able to gain her first experience in the field. After completing her Biology undergraduate degree from UNC Chapel Hill, she was lucky enough to travel to Europe, for what ended up being 5 months of exploring and working in new and exciting cultures. The main force that drove her back to the states was Dental School.

Heading back to her home town of Chapel Hill for dental school, Dr. Peele was able to expand the reach of her education by organizing a dental service trip to Nepal. She was also involved in local community service throughout her career at UNC.

Dr. Peele completed an extra year of training through a General Practice Residency at MAHEC Clinic in Asheville, North Carolina. At this clinic, she was able to treat a variety of patients with many complex dental needs, ranging from difficult Oral Surgery, Denture and Partial, Endodontic, and Crown and Bridge cases. She loves being part of the team at Cooper Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Peele can be found enjoying the outdoors, exploring Charleston's waterways in her canoe, and experimenting with new and interesting recipes.

How Can We Help Your Smile?



From the moment I walked in the door and was greeted by name with a smile for my first appointment at Cooper Dentistry I knew it was going to be a great visit. It was the most comfortable, enjoyable experience I've ever had at a dentist!

Dr. Cooper and her staff are wonderful! They always make me feel so comfortable, and that's a tall task at the dreaded dentist! The office is very up to date and modern looking. I especially love the fact that she has her rooms separated for extra privacy. I highly recommend Cooper Cosmetic & Family Dentistry for all of your dental needs!

Dr. Cooper and her staff are beyond amazing! They are very personable and polite as soon as you walk through the door. The environment feels more warm and welcoming and less like a doctors office. I was having trouble finding a dentist who would actually listen to my concerns, as I am uncomfortable having work done. Not only did they listen to me, they understood!

The staff at Cooper Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is amazing. I have a lot of dental anxiety and they have helped me with my fears. I now enjoy going to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned to see everyone in the office. I highly recommend this place. All three dentists that work there are amazing.

We love Cooper Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. They are truly a family practice. Their staff has always been warm and welcoming to our whole family. I am always impressed with their knowledge of insurance and the proper ways to file and get the best use of our benefits. They are a community practice through and through.


They are an office full of knowledgeable and caring staff. My daughter started coming here when she was 2.5 years old and I can't say enough positive things. I love them for myself, but you know you've found a winning practice when you have a child ASKING to go to the dentist!


Great experience. Everyone on the staff is very friendly. All of their hygienists are very competent. You can't go wrong with any of them or any of the three dentists. I use to dread going to a dentist, but going to Cooper Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is always a positive experience.


Total 5 star experience from the front door to the chair and beyond. Nice office, fantastic front desk staff, great hygienists, and skilled dentistry are all I've ever had here. Cooper Dentistry will keep your teeth happy and healthy. I look forward to my visits and can't love this dentist enough!


Excellent and highly recommend! Can't say enough great things about Cooper Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. Dr. Cooper and her staff are wonderful. They have excellent customer service and superior care! I had a mini crisis and they were able to get me in the same day, fix me up and on my way in no time.
