If you lived in Beaufort in the 1990s, you will no doubt recognize Dr. Hefner as Katherine Grace who excelled in basketball, tennis and academics at Beaufort Academy. She graduated from the University of North Carolina and was an honor graduate of the School of Dentistry at the Medical University of South Carolina, in 2003.
Not long ago when one of the Medical University School of Dentistry’s most prominent professors lectured to the Beaufort Lowcountry Study Club, guess whose cases he brought to show the audience? Dr. Hefner’s!
Dr. Hefner has also attended the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. She practices almost all phases of dentistry, especially enjoying the cosmetic and pediatric aspects of dentistry. Katherine is married to Ashley Hefner, a local architect, and they have three boys: Vann, Ford and Bray.
