While anxiety is common for almost every person who goes to see the dentist, it can be overcome through the right approach, environment and amenities. Dr. Rink at the Charleston Center for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry takes nervousness very seriously, and has dedicated his practice to creating a soothing, serene atmosphere that promotes well being on every level.
Additionally, every staff member is trained in handling dental fears and phobias, and is highly compassionate and attentive towards your needs. From routine cleanings to root canals, you will be treated with kindness, respect and understanding.
The first step of your treatment process is a detailed, one-on-one consultation with Dr. Rink. This is a great time to let the dentist know about any specific fears you might have so that he can accommodate you. Active listening allows Dr. Rink to fully understand your concerns and weak spots, so he can create a successful game plan for accomplishing your dental goals.
Dr. Rink will explain each step of your procedure in depth, as he finds that being in full possession of the process helps clients to feel more secure and involved, rather than in the dark about what’s going to happen. In some cases, Dr. Rink can use cosmetic digital imaging to show you your results ahead of time.
On the day of your appointment, Dr. Rink can offer you a local anesthetic that is heated to your body temperature and Ph balanced to your body, creating an injection that you barely feel. The injection site is thoroughly numbed before treatment. Nitrous Oxide anesthesia can be used as needed to help further reduce anxiety and raise pain thresholds. Dr. Rink also offers sedations dentistry to insulate patients from crippling dental fear. Patient pain levels are carefully monitored throughout the treatment using advanced technology.
At the Charleston Center for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, you will enjoy soft, cuddly blankets, warm towels, soothing essential oils, Bose noise cancelling headphones, as well as 3D eyeglasses that project movies during your procedure. We have a huge catalog of films to choose from, so you will be so distracted you may not even notice when your session is over.
Dr. Rink is passionate about offering his clients the most cutting edge equipment on the market, knowing that this helps to minimize discomfort and speeds up treatment times. We offer same-day CEREC restorations, sedations dentistry, 3Shape Smile Design, the TRIOS Scanner, Primescan Scanner, and cosmetic digital imaging, just to name a few.
Just because your treatment is over, doesn’t mean that Dr. Rink has closed your case. Dr. Rink continues to check in on his patients and schedule follow up visits after your initial visit, knowing that good oral health depends on prevention. He will continue to monitor your oral hygiene so future crises can be prevented. This personalized attention and care is among the top reasons why Charleston patients trust Dr. Rink and rate him as among the best cosmetic dentists in the world.
To Our Family of Patients,
After much thought and concern for the health of our patients and team, I would like to share with you my thoughts on how the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States can best be managed at our practice. The key issue is prevention. Social distancing is the best solution at this time to prevent the spread of the virus.
Therefore, in conjunction with the South Carolina Dental Association recommendations, I have decided to close our normal practice operation with the exception of emergency and urgent care situations, through the end of March, 2020. I will be available for you and your family for emergency and urgent needs. Please call my personal cell phone if you have any questions or if you need an office visit. I am here for you.
After we have weathered this storm, we will be here to see that you continue to have the excellent care that you and your families deserve. We thank you for the trust that you place in our practice. We look forward to a long and healthy relationship in the future.
My cell phone number: 843-224-0517
To Your Good Oral and Systemic Health!
- Dr. John F. Rink, DDS, AAACDVirtual Consultation
