First Visit

Your initial appointment usually will consist of a professional cleaning, oral examination and cancer screening, review of your dental needs and concerns, and a discussion on your treatment options.

Please assist us by providing the following information before or at the time of your consultation:

  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms or ID cards. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
  • You can download, print, and bring our patient forms with you or arrive a few minutes before your appointment to fill them out.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) that may be of concern prior to your first visit. Please call our office if you have any questions: James Island Family, Cosmetic, & Implant Dentistry Charleston Office Phone Number 843-795-1111.

Dental X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office or provide us with their contact information so that we may request it. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional or updated x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.

We require both panoramic x-rays for proper diagnosis of the health of the teeth and the tissue that supports the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of decay between the teeth and for finding proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Staff was friendly and competent. The office was clean and well organized. The treatment plan was clear, but did not feel aggressive which has turned me off to offices in the past.

I’m an “old” friend/acquaintence of Robert’s from years ago before he became a successful dentist. Life has a way of bringing us back together for reasons unknown.

Patient Testimonial by Taylor B

I am so blown away by the caring professionalism shown to me by your staff and doctor. Today was my first trip to the dentist in about two years. I was nervous about going since I had previously had a scary and frustrating experience. From the moment I called to make my appointment I knew I made the right choice. Both Carrie and Dr. Christopher were phenomenal! They explained everything and really took their time with me which made me feel like I was the only patient in the office! I am so impressed and now actually excited to come back for routine visits!

Patient Testimonial by Leisa P

Very impressed with everything about this dental office. Extremely friendly staff. Dr Beall and his dental assistant explained every process and what additional work I need done. And they are more than willing to accommodate the need for sedation for procedures. I'm happy I found them!

Patient Testimonial by Nick K

I had just arrived in Folly Beach at 11pm on a Saturday night when I broke my implant. I called the office at 8 am on Monday and was scheduled for an appointment at 3 pm that same day. The problem was resolved in that visit. I wish my own dentist was as responsive!
