You have just moved to the area. What’s the best way to choose a Mount Pleasant dentist? The American Dental Association advises looking for several key features, and you can find them all at the offices of Robert C. Sikes DDS.
Look for skill and modern treatment methods
Your family deserves precise dental care. From oral exams, x-rays and cleanings to restorative care such as porcelain crowns and dental implant restorations to cosmetic improvements such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, your new Mount Pleasant dentist must evaluate the health of your teeth and gums and also quickly address emergency issues such as tooth extractions.
Diagnostic tools should include low radiation digital x-rays.
Look for membership in professional associations such as the American Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association. Your new dentist must keep current with advanced training such as with the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.
Your new Mount Pleasant dentist should stress availability
Be sure to check your new Mount Pleasant dentist for treatment hours that accommodate family schedules. Ask about fees, payment methods and accepted dental insurance plans. When a dental emergency such as a severe toothache, lost crown, or avulsed tooth arises, who is available to respond to your need?
Additionally, tour the dental office. Are the treatment rooms comfortable? Are the office staff and dental assistants responsive to questions, and do they practice regular patient teaching?
Your new dentist delivers a wide range of services
Just as each patient, whether child, teen, adult or senior adult, has many oral and systemic needs, the dentist you select must fully address those issues with an individualized approach.
Preventive services should include:
- exams, digital x-rays, and thorough hygienic cleanings
- periodontal treatment
- oral cancer screenings
- bite checks
- mouthguards for bruxism, sports and snoring
Restorative services should include:
- Root canal therapy
- natural-looking full and partial dentures
- porcelain crowns (Dr. Sikes’ ceramic work is done locally.)

- Metal-free, tooth-colored fillings
Cosmetic services should include:
