Welcome to Beaufort Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, where they are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility for the highest quality dental care available. You will feel right at home in their office as they welcome all patients as if they were family. The team of dentists, hygienists and other professionals at Beaufort Family Dentistry is committed to providing you and your family with the highest quality of care. They offer same-day appointments for busy families, a dedicated children’s area, as well as services and treatments for cosmetic dentistry, periodontics and implants.


     The Beaufort office offers same-time appointments for the entire family so there’s no driving back and forth to get everyone to the dentist. They also have a fun waiting room just for kids! They have the ability to perform all phases of dental care at their Beaufort office, keeping your scheduling as simple as possible. All dental procedures are offered, including a wide range of cosmetic dental options to improve your smile and boost your confidence. Services offered included:

Anxiety-Free Dentistry, Children’s Dentistry, Dental Hygiene, Periodontal Health, Digital x-rays, Braces/Traditional Braces, Braces without brackets, Root Canal (Endodontics), Dental Implants, Bridges and Dentures, Extractions, Soft Tissue Graft, Crown Lengthening, Gum Disease Treatment, Veneers, Crowns, HPV and Oral Cancer Screening, Whitening/Bleaching, Inlays/Onlays (Porcelain Restorations), Mercury-Free Dentistry, Bonding/White Filling, Custom-made Mouth Guards, Bone Grafting Insurance & Discount Programs.

     At Beaufort Family Dentistry, they are “in network” with most major dental insurance plans. Have a question? No problem, you may call them at 843-524-6363 and talk to one of the Beaufort office’s insurance specialists. Many patients put off treatments and procedures because they cannot afford to pay. The office offers Care Credit that will allow you to pay over time — often without incurring interest charges instead of a lump sum prior to treatment.

     In addition Beaufort Family Dentistry now offers the all new Alliance Dental Plan, an innovative discount program that was designed primarily for patients who do not have dental insurance. The discount program is available for only $89.00 per year for a single adult, with discounted prices for families. The program includes some free x rays and exams, including 25% off most services. Please visit the website or call the office for further information. You can address your dental needs right away as there is no waiting period once you join the program and you don’t have to worry about maxing out of your insurance benefits.  It is a win win!
