Are you looking for the best dentist in Hilton Head? Hilton Head attracts some of the best dentists in the US and in the world, and we like to believe we are in that company. At the very least, we can say that we strive to be the best, and that we strive to offer the best dental care. Sometimes others even recognize what we do and label it “the best.” But we may not be the best dentist for you.
How We Strive to Be the Best
To be considered one of the best dentists in Hilton Head or anywhere, we believe, means that we have to strive to achieve the best education available to dentists. Dr. Brad Durham has spent a lifetime in the pursuit of his dental education, and after receiving his DMD he began studying at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. As he demonstrated his knowledge, he achieved the rank of Fellow and was added as an instructor.
Dr. Rod Strickland also studied at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and achieved the rank of Fellow.
Like Dr. Durham and Dr. Strickland, Dr. Reeves has earned the rank of LVI Fellow as a result of his detailed studies in the fields of cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry. He’s also trained in the use of oral sedation to safely combat dental anxiety. And he has studied the advanced orthodontic treatment Invisalign, which straightens teeth without brackets and wires.
In addition, our dentists have continued to keep up with some of the latest developments in cosmetic dentistry, adding new technologies like dental implants.
But to truly stay at the forefront of dental knowledge requires innovation, and that’s what Dr. Strickland did when he invented the Denture Fountain of Youth®. He was disappointed with the way he and others were being taught to make dentures and he realized there had to be a better way, so he utilized the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to transform the way dentures are designed and fitted. This new technique creates dentures that look great, fit well, function superbly, and rejuvenate your appearance, helping you look years, even decades younger.
What We Mean by the Best Dental Care
In the time we have been serving patients in Hilton Head, we have never offered anything but what we consider to be the best dental care. In our opinion, the best dental care doesn’t just respond when you get sick, it strives to make you healthy. We identify potential problems in the health and appearance of your smile and combat them before they make you sick. The best dental care also acknowledges that your oral health is part of your overall health, and through TMJ treatment we work to harmonize the function of your jaw with the function of the rest of your body’s muscles and bones.
Sometimes People Say We’re the Best
If we never heard “you’re the best” from anyone besides our Hilton Head patients, we would be content, but they’re not the only people who have sometimes called us “the best.”
Dr. Brad Durham pushed the boundaries of knowledge at LVI. As a result of his extensive studies, he was the first person to be honored with the rank of LVI Master.
For his part, Dr. Strickland was selected as the best in the first ever Dental Design Competition sponsored by Dental Economics in 2000. His office was named best in office design and in high-technology integration, and he was declared the overall winner.
And we recently were chosen as one of the best by American Registry, who included us as one of their 50 Companies of Excellence in the South, a list that was published in South Magazine.
Are You Looking for the Best Dentist?
Many people start out searching for the best dentist in Hilton Head, but change their mind because they realize that working with the best dentist means being committed to the best. We will do everything we can to ensure you get your best smile, but you have to be prepared to do your part, in making your regular appointments, following care instructions exactly, and being mindful of the state of your oral health.
If you’re looking for a dentist who will perform regular cleanings and will only respond when problems arise, then you’re not really looking for us. Whether we’re the best dentist in Hilton Head or not, we’re not the best dentist for you.
