A Mount Pleasant native, Dr. Joyner attended Palmetto Christian Academy and Wando High School and later graduated from Clemson University with a degree in economics. He received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina, where he attended dental school on a Navy scholarship.

Dr. Joyner then completed a general dentistry residency in the Navy and spent four years as a Navy dentist serving marines at Camp Lejeune, N.C. and at the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek, SC, where he treated sailors in the nuclear power program.

“I feel a deep connection to the city of Charleston and am very excited to serve this community in the coming years,” said Joyner, of his new practice. “I specifically chose the Clements Ferry community for my practice so I could serve the families of Charleston, both young and old, with all their oral healthcare needs.”

Dr. Joyner and his wife of seven years, Ruthie, have three children – Fitz, 4, Byers, 2, and an infant son, Patrick.


The Daniel Island Company has presented its plans for a small island enclave that is connected by bridge to the “mainland” of Daniel Island. Formerly known as Rhoden Island, Captain’s Island is a 90-acre island located off the north end of Daniel Island and edged by Ralston Creek and the Wando River. It is envisioned as a waterfront settlement inspired by coastal Lowcountry villages such as Rockville and Mount Pleasant’s Old Village, with streets and homes thoughtfully placed around the island’s most valuable natural assets - its trees and coastline. The first homesites will be offered for sale later this month.

“Captain’s Island represents a rare opportunity for residents to enjoy a very special coastal lifestyle. Intimate in scale and remote in feel, it’s conveniently connected to Daniel Island and Charleston, so it really offers the best of all worlds,” said Matt Sloan, president of the Daniel Island Company. “Residents here will enjoy their own exclusive amenities including a ‘River Porch’ gathering place on the Wando River, that has been designed by local architect Reggie Gibson.”

Although separate from Daniel Island’s mainland, the residents at Captain’s Island are also nearby the amenities of the Daniel Island Club, including 36 holes of golf by Tom Fazio and Rees Jones, resort-style swim, tennis and fitness offerings, a clubhouse for dining and entertainment and several indoor and outdoor dining venues. Purchasers of homesites on Captain’s Island will become social members of the Club and will have the option to expand their membership to include all of the Club’s recreational offerings.

“The homesites on Captain’s Island are among the last we have to offer on Daniel Island,” says Sloan. “They also represent our very best property. It’s unusual for a developer to save the best property for last and Captain’s Island represents a culmination of more than 25 years of our team’s development efforts.”

Daniel Island Real Estate will begin accepting contracts for the first offering of 31 homesites on the southeastern edge of Captain’s Island on Oct. 30. These homesites will begin in the $300,000s and range to more than $1million for dockable waterfront sites. For additional information, visit


U-Haul Company of South Carolina, Inc. recently announced that All-Star Storage has signed on as a U-Haul® neighborhood dealer to serve the Charleston community. The company is now serving clients at its new location at 2076 Wambaw Creek Road on the Cainhoy Peninsula. They offer U-Haul trucks, trailers, towing equipment, moving supplies, boxes and in-store pick-up for boxes.

Normal business hours are 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday (after-hours drop-off is available). According to a press release, All-Star Storage owner Andy Shobert is proud to team with the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage to better meet the demands of Berkeley County. U-Haul and All-Star Storage are striving to benefit the environment through sustainability initiatives. Truck sharing is a core U-Haul sustainability business practice that allows individuals to access a fleet of trucks that is larger than what they could access on an individual basis.

“Every U-Haul truck placed in a community helps keep 19 personally owned large-capacity vehicles, pickups, SUVs and vans off the road,” stated the press release. “Fewer vehicles means less traffic congestion, less pollution, less fuel burned and cleaner air.”

Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler has been appointed to serve as a member of the Environment, Energy and Land Use Policy Steering Committee for the National Association of Counties (NACo).

“Committee membership at the national level is a serious commitment and responsibility, but it is also a rewarding experience,” NACo President Roy Charles Brook said in a letter to Supervisor Peagler, offering him the position. “A great deal of NACo’s strength is in our committees and your active participation reflects and reinforces that strength.”

Congress and federal agencies often look to NACo for feedback on legislative policy decisions.

“I look forward to exchanging ideas with leaders across the country, learning ways to be proactive to strengthen Berkeley County and building relationships to help find solutions to issues in our county, state and country,” said Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler. “This invaluable opportunity will challenge me to strengthen my leadership skills by sharing thoughts and initiatives with other innovative leaders.”
