Dr. John F. Rink is a comprehensive family dentist at Charleston Center for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry. Dr. John F. Rink provides family dentistry with a personalized approach for patients of all ages. Families tend to be more consistent about their routine dental care when the whole family goes to the same office.

What is Family Dentistry in Charleston?

Patients who start taking care of their teeth as children will be in better oral health and have fewer dental problems in the future. For this reason, Dr. Rink focuses on preventative dentistry and instilling good habits when patients are young. Dr. Rink recommends a minimum of two dental checkups per year for all of his patients. These appointments provide professional teeth cleaning to eliminate plaque buildup and help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride treatments and sealants can be particularly beneficial for children, but adolescents and adults may benefit as well.

Smiling Family Dental Charleston

Bring the whole family to Dr. Rink for one of the best family dentists in Charleston, he can track and monitor dental issues that tend to run in families, such as gum disease. Periodically, he will take x-rays of his patients to detect cavities and other tooth and jaw problems. If he detects a cavity, Dr. Rink can place a dental filling before the decay gets worse and the patient needs a more involved dental restoration.  Dr. Rink also educates all of his patients in proper brushing and flossing techniques, and gives recommendations regarding rinses and toothpastes to keep plaque from building up between visits.

What are the advantages of seeing Dr. Rink for family dentistry?

Our Charleston family dentist, Dr. Rink, welcomes all patients from the very young to the elderly. Imagine the convenience of scheduling back-to-back dental appointments for your entire family rather than having to run around town at different times.

Young children who first come into our office for their parents’ appointments become comfortable with the environment at an early age. When it is their turn for an appointment, children don’t show as much anxiety since they are already used to our office and staff.

Being in a familiar environment is beneficial for adults as well as children. When the whole family goes to the same dentist, a familiarity with the dentist, staff, and office reduces stress overall. Having to deal with only one dental office regarding insurance and billing is an additional perk of having everyone in the family go to the same dentist.

Ok can we talk about how amazing Dr. Rink is? He gave me a perfect smile and I could not be happier! He genuinely cares about his patients, and when I had a tooth "emergency" on Sunday I called his office just meaning to leave a message to see him Monday. He called me back in 5 minutes to get me in on Sunday so I didn't have to miss work! He's a great talented dentist and an awesome person in general

To Our Wonderful Family of Patients:

Last night, my wife Connie and I enjoyed the most delicious take-out dinner from FIG restaurant. As always, the food was excellent; however, it was most satisfying to see the local restaurant, along with others, begin its comeback. Our resilient city feels like it is coming back to life—parks are opening and folks and families are enjoying the wonderful spring Charleston air. The Rink dental team is, too, readying itself for the next chapter of practicing dentistry as the community begins reopening its doors.

We are concentrating on continuing to advance our rock-solid foundation of state-of-the-art infection control. We were blessed to keep our dedicated and passionate team employed during the crisis, and have devoted the entire month of April to research, systematically developing, purchasing and installing the best additional infection control protocols and equipment available. We are ready. This month we will begin the process of a “soft opening” of our practice. What this means for our patients is a resumption of the same excellent restorative, esthetic, and preventive care in the safest and most secure environment available anywhere.

Additional safety steps will include asking our patients to wait for their appointments in their cars rather than in the reception area. We will ask that you take a moment to fill out a short questionnaire upon your arrival regarding your health and recent travels. We will take everyone’s temperature (including the team) with a forehead scanner as you enter the practice. We will clean and disinfect all touchpoints in the office in between each patient. We have procured the highest quality KN95 masks and face shields for the staff and have carefully researched and purchased the most advanced aerosol containment and purification systems available for the safety of all our patients. These are a few examples of how we have added additional layers of protection for your and our staff’s benefit.

Finally, I wholly understand that each one of you is an individual with specific desires, needs, and comfort levels. I want you to know that we are here to actively listen to you and to create the best environment for your emotional health. Some will be ready sooner than others to receive care again at our office. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and please know that our relationship with you and your family is our highest priority.

We look forward to reuniting with everyone but until that time it is our wish that you enjoy good health, good spirits, and peace.

To your optimal dental health,

- John F. Rink, DDS, AAACD and team
