Charles is a native of South Carolina. Charles’ father, Dr. Buist, is a dentist, and he raised Charles alone. Therefore, Charles spent a lot of time in a dentist office while he was growing up, and he started working as a dental assistant at an early age. Charles saw many horrific cases where patients would come to Dr. Buist after being injured by another dentist. He witnessed many patients who were harmed by careless or reckless dentists. As a result, Charles became very passionate about dental malpractice and protecting dental patients.
