Finding The Right Family Dentist Is Important

  • October 23, 2016

Who is your family dentist? Maybe a better question is this: Who should be your family dentist?

If you live in or near Columbia, SC, our dentist office would love the opportunity to meet and care for you and your family.

At Total Dental Care of South Carolina, you can find services for patients of all ages. Our team of dental professionals can help your children prevent tooth decay, repair your spouse’s smile with our restorative dentistry, or improve your smile with our cosmetic services.

Schedule a visit to our office to find out what family dentistry can be.


The Foundations Of Family Dentistry

One of Dr. Forbes’s goals is to provide comprehensive dental care for all families in and around Columbia, SC.

For more than two decades, he has been treating patients. In that time, he has seen almost any problem you can imagine and helped a multitude of patients with everything from dental fillings to full-mouth reconstruction.

Your family’s oral health starts with basic preventive care, however. When you visit our office, you can count on a thorough and professional dental cleaning and examination.

Our dental hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar buildup and then polish your teeth to make them look as good as possible before you leave.

During your visits, we will monitor any changes in your teeth with X-rays, intraoral photos, and visual inspections. We also use the VELscope, which allows us to check for oral cancer before it would be visible to the naked eye.

Our staff is happy to provide dental education for your family, too. If you have questions about brushing, flossing, or other oral health concerns, we’ll be happy to answer them for you.


A Family Dentist Should Provide The Best Service Possible

Dr. Forbes has been serving Columbia for 24 years. He is well aware of the ways technology has changed the world including family dentistry.

Dr. Forbes has kept up to date with these changes through continuing education. He also has implemented the things he has learned to maintain a state-of-the-art dentist office.

The VELscope we use for oral cancer screenings is just one example of this.

For teens and adults interested in orthodontic care, we offer ClearCorrect aligners as a more comfortable and convenient alternative to braces.

Our patients also have the option of Six Month Smiles. This is considered cosmetic orthodontics. Many adults find this a cost-effective and efficient way to improve the appearance of their smiles.

Patients who may need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a whole row of teeth can benefit from traditional and mini dental implants to hold their teeth replacement securely and comfortably in place.

And in our previous post, we discussed the benefits of another of our state-of-the-art services — CEREC same-day crowns.


Comfort Is Important In Family Dentistry

Every member of our staff wants to make your experience as pleasant as it can be whenever you visit us.

This starts when you walk through the door. You’ll find that we have one of the friendliest, most caring, and compassionate staffs in the Palmetto State. If there is something we can do to make your visit a little easier, please let us know.

We also know that coming to the dentist is easier for some people than for others. If your child is anxious about coming to see us, our team members can draw on their wealth of experience helping patients to put your son or daughter at ease.


Come To A True Family Dentist Office

As a parent, you may feel overwhelmed by how busy you are already. We can’t simplify every part of your life, but we can make your dental care easier.

Instead of running to multiple offices for yourself, your spouse, your kids, and your parents, why not go to a dentist office that can serve your entire family?

At Total Dental Care of South Carolina, you will find a team of dental professionals, working together to support your efforts to keep your family’s mouths as healthy as possible.
