Dr. Kip Covington


  • University of South Carolina
  • Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston


Kip was born and raised in Greenville, and was excited to move back upon the completion of his residency. He graduated from Wade Hampton High School in 2002 and proceeded to attend the
University of South Carolina. While there he was in Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and played football
for two years.

Kip obtained his DMD degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Throughout
dental school the city of Charleston, as well as the water, captivated Kip’s heart and made it very
difficult to leave. He decided, however, to further his skill and knowledge at a general dentistry
residency at the University of Alabama – Birmingham. Upon completion of residency he was excited to
return to Greenville, partially due to his brothers and sisters starting families of their own right here in
the Upstate.

Kip met his wife, KoKo, when she interviewed for the residency program he was completing. After a
year of dating they were married in the Virgin Islands in August 2012.

Kip loves playing any type of sport, spending quality time with his family (including many nieces and
nephews), spending time outdoors, hiking, skydiving, traveling and doing anything that has to do with a
lake or ocean. He also has learned to be a good sport when he loses to his wife at golf.
