Dental Exams & Cleanings

Good dental health starts with dental exams and dental cleanings! So our dentists at The Smile Center use the latest in dental technology to examine your family’s teeth.

For family dental exams and dental cleanings with small-town service and world-class technology, call 843-492-5026 for an appointment in Georgetown, SC or 843-491-5353 for an appointment in Murrells Inlet, SC.

Keeping Your Family’s Teeth Cavity-Free

We clean your teeth to remove the bacteria-filled plaque that leads to tooth decay. We get into all the nooks and crannies you miss with your toothbrush and floss. In addition, we can provide dental sealants and fluoride treatments to help protect your family’s teeth from decay.

Dental Exams: Not Just About Your Teeth

Our Murrells Inlet, SC dentists don’t just look for cavities during dental exams. They perform oral cancer screenings too. Catching oral cancer in its earliest stages is especially important, as it has a low survival rate after five years. Dr. John Miller has taught a course in oral cancer screening to South Carolina nurse practitioners.

We Provide World Class Technology

At The Smile Center, we’ve outfitted our two locations with some of the latest dental technology, including:

  • Digital X-rays, for clear images of your family’s teeth. No more waiting while film develops, and we can enlarge or otherwise tweak images to get a better look at your teeth.
  • The Wand®, which makes administering local anesthesia virtually painless. It also eliminates collateral numbness so your mouth won’t feel so “funny” following your dental procedures.
  • DIAGNOdent, which uses laser fluorescence to help our dentists locate cavities in their earliest stages.

We use this technology to ensure we find any dental problems while they are still minor. We never want minor dental problems to turn into major ones that will require more complex and costly treatment! If any issues need attention, we’ll discuss treatment options such as oral surgery and restorative dentistry with you.
