What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "While traveling to the island on a Friday with an excruciating toothache, I was surprised to see Ocean Dental open on a Saturday. With little hope of getting an appointment I called and they got me in immediately. First thing is first the office is beautiful and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Suggs and her staff are so welcoming and just made you feel like you have known them all your life. If it was economical for me to travel 6.5 hours to see them I would in a heartbeat. Thank you all again!!!!"

  • "My wife cracked her front tooth on a Saturday evening while we were vacationing in Hilton Head. We called Ocean Dental at 8:30 the following Monday morning & they had my wife come in immediately to repair the tooth. By 11:30am, the tooth had been repaired & we were able to continue with our vacation. I would highly recommend contacting Ocean Dental for any emergency needs, or just routine care. They are fantastic."
