Dr. Rush-Baker Caldwell


Dr. Caldwell is a native of Greenville and grew up in the Cleveland Park and Gower Neighborhoods. After graduation from J.L. Mann High School, Dr. Caldwell attended Wofford College where he played football. He graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Biology and then ventured to Charleston with his high school sweetheart- and now wife- Mary DuPre (Dr. Watson’s sister). In Charleston, he completed his Dental Education program, graduating first in his class from the Medical University of South Carolina. He and his wife then moved to Richmond, Virginia where he specialized in Orthodontics at the Medical College of Virginia. After moving back to the Gower area of Greenville, he joined his brother-in-law, Dr. Watson, at Palmetto Family Orthodontics.  Rush-Baker and Mary DuPre cherish spending time with their four children: Watson, Trib, Gaines, and Gully. On many Saturday afternoons you may find Dr. Caldwell cheering for his beloved Georgia Bulldogs. Some of his other favorite hobbies include water sports, snow skiing and a good game of backyard football. He and his wife are excited to be members of Downtown Presbyterian Church.
