About Luck Family Dental


Leah R. Luck, DDS

Dr. Luck knew from an early age that she wanted a career in dentistry. When Dr. Luck was growing up, every dental appointment was a positive experience (she says that it may have been the orange flavored fluoride!) These memorable and enjoyable visits to the dentist always left her intrigued, and her curiosity soon became a passion. After shadowing a dentist to take a deeper look at the job, she was hooked.

Dr. Luck followed her passion to dental school at Howard University. She graduated in 2009, and since then Dr. Luck has enjoyed many things about being a dentist, especially the artful challenge and the comprehensive nature of general dentistry. She loves that no two days and no two patients are the same, and she enjoys making conversation with anyone who walks through the doors.

When she's not in the office, you can find Dr. Luck enjoying time with her family, running, or practicing yoga. As a mother of four, Dr. Luck knows the importance of compassionate care, and we’ll always make sure you leave our office with a smile!


Our Staff

Dr. Darrah and his staff are top-notch. Everyone at Buckwalter Dental Care is helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We hold ourselves to a high standard of thoughtful service, so we’re always quick to follow-up with any patient questions or concerns. We are detail-oriented and want our patients to know they are each unique and important to us.


Amanda has been working in the dental field for over 10 years! She grew up wanting to be a Dental Hygienist, but once she started working in a dental office, she fell in love with assisting. Amanda was born and raised in Ridgeland, SC and still lives there today with her husband and 4 boys. When Amanda is not working she loves spending time with her family.


Jamie is a Dental Hygienist with a full 27 years in dentistry. Her love of helping people improve their oral health is what motivates her to provide her best service each day. With her lengthy dental experience and encouraging patient-care, Jamie is always helping our patients achieve their best smiles yet. Besides Buckwalter Dental Care, Jamie spends most of her time with her husband and daughter, traveling and exploring the outdoors.


Kim’s sunny and extroverted personality is a perfect fit for her position as our Front Desk Receptionist. While she has only recently joined the dental field, she has a great appreciation of our fantastic Bluffton patients and the city’s hospitality. Kim was born in Charlotte, NC, but spent most of her adult life in Wilmington with her two children, who are still working and attending college there. Upon moving to Bluffton, Kim settled in quickly and spends most of her free time at the beach or on the tennis court. She loves to travel and her favorite vacation destination is the Caribbean.
