Patient Education and Personalized Care
Dr. Dickert and Dr. Lynn believe that patient education is key to helping patients feel comfortable and confident in their dental care. We help educate patients on dental concerns and treatments so that they feel confident when making choices regarding their oral health. Our dentists have built a dental care team comprised of highly trained and compassionate professionals who enjoy helping patients. We welcome all patients to our Charleston, SC dentist office a provide each patient with attentive, personalized care tailored to their oral health concerns and cosmetic goals.
We offer sedation dentistry for patients with severe dental anxiety. We use nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to help patients feel totally at ease while remaining alert during their treatment.
Using sedation dentistry can help patients receive the dental care they need. Avoiding the dentist could lead to complex oral health conditions. Patients who do not visit the dentist regularly are more likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Regularly scheduled dental checkups and cleanings help maintain the health of the teeth and gums while allowing for early diagnosis of any developing oral health concerns such as gum disease or oral cancer.
