Dental care should be a vital part of maintaining good oral health, but many people avoid it due to fear of the dentist. At Dr. John F. Rink’s Charleston cosmetic dentistry practice, we believe that a good way to avoid dental anxiety is by creating a positive relationship with the dentist from the beginning. That is why we take special care when working with children. At our Charleston practice, we want quality pediatric dentistry to be provided in an environment that feels safe and secure for children.
