About Us

Who We Are

We are a family and cosmetic dental practice located in Mt. Pleasant, SC just off I-526 on Hwy 17. We pride ourselves in being a small practice where our patients are like family. We strive to give personalized attention to help our patients feel more at ease. Our mission is to help our patients achieve and maintain optimum oral health through comprehensive examinations, preventive care, patient education and the delivery of the highest quality restorative dental treatment.

Comprehensive Exam

The comprehensive exam lays the foundation for excellent dental care. This is why we place so much emphasis on our patients having a thorough comprehensive evaluation at their New Patient visit. This evaluation includes the following:

  • Health history and dental history reviews.
  • Oral cancer screening by visual inspection using the latest technology.
  • Periodontal disease evaluation.
  • Evaluation of teeth and all tooth restorations for decay or other conditions affecting their stability.
  • Evaluation of occlusion (bite) – How the teeth fit together and function with the jaw joints.
  • A thorough explanation of all conditions using digital photos and xrays to help our patients visually understand their oral health and their treatment options.

We like for this process to be comfortable and informative with our patients ultimately understanding their oral conditions. If we have accomplished this, our patients can then make their own decisions about what is right for them.

Preventive Care

We believe in the concept of preventive care as a way to maintain optimal dental health. Our goal is to provide dental “health care” rather than “disease care.” We understand that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are very important factors in preventing dental disease. Also, some restorative treatments can be considered preventive in that they help our patients avoid major dental problems in the future.

Patient Education

We believe that optimum oral health results primarily from our patients having a greater understanding of their oral condition. This ensures that they are able to make more informed decisions about their dental care. We understand that it is often difficult to understand dental terminology. That is why we utilize intra-oral photography, digital x-rays and models to help our patients visually understand their oral health. Our knowledgeable and caring team is always helpful in answering questions concerning dental needs or various esthetic treatments.

Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Hart’s Philosophy is based on achieving and maintaining complete oral health – the harmonious function of teeth, supporting structures, muscles, and joints. If these four areas are balanced, the end result is ideal form and aesthetically pleasing smiles that are both functional and beautiful. This comprehensive approach to dentistry is what many of our patients are looking for. While many of our patients have extremely healthy mouths, some have significant dental problems that require a more comprehensive treatment approach to achieve optimum oral health.

Making Your Visit Comfortable

We want to build a foundation of trust with our patients so that you will have less apprehension about visiting the dentist. Some people naturally feel uneasy about dental visits, so if we can help your experience be a relaxing and positive one, we have accomplished a major goal. Each of our team members is dedicated to making sure that you have excellent personalized care in order to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We offer nitrous oxide sedation and oral anti-anxiety medications during dental treatments. Our most popular comfort gadget is our video goggles which our patients can wear over their eyes and enjoy a movie during treatment.
