Dr. John F. Rink is a family dentist in Charleston, SC, with a personalized approach for patients of all ages. Families tend to be more consistent about routine dental care when the whole family goes to the same office.

What is Family Dentistry?

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.

Dr. Rink 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.

Services we offer for family dentistry

At CCCRD, we care about keeping you and your family in excellent dental health. We offer the following family dentistry services:

  • Teeth Cleaning: Your hygienist will remove accumulated bacteria and plaque during teeth cleaning. While regular brushing and flossing eradicate most plaque and bacteria, we all have some buildup that requires a professional's help.
  • Flouride Treatment: Fluoride fortifies teeth against the bacteria that lead to decay and helps reinforce enamel strength. Professional fluoride treatments contain higher quantities than over-the-counter mouthwash and toothpaste, with longer-lasting effects.
  • Dental Sealants: These thin, plastic coatings are applied to the chewing surface of your teeth in the areas most susceptible to plaque and trapped food. Dental sealants smooth out the places where cavity-causing bacteria can attach and provide an additional layer of protection from decay.
  • Gingivitis Treatment: When detected early, professional cleaning and improved at-home care can reverse gingivitis. Deep cleaning may be necessary to reduce the depth of the pockets between the teeth and gum tissue and remove bacteria.
  • Cavity Treatment: When left untreated, cavities can continue to grow and cause more extensive damage to your smile. If you have a cavity, we can treat it with fluoride, fillings, crowns, and root canal therapy.

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

What are the advantages of family dentistry?

As a Charleston, SC, 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.
