Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Mason N. from Summerville, SC (Source: Yelp)


I now go here as a result of following Bobbie, the dental hygienist.  Bobbie has been cleaning my teeth for years and she is the absolute best! She is very professional, skilled at what she does, and is personable.  She talks to me like a friend or family member.  She explains to me what she is doing every time and constantly asks me throughout the cleaning if I am doing ok.  She also reminds me of areas I need to work on and I don’t take offense to that, that’s her job! I know, as most people do, that a good cleaning can be uncomfortable based on the condition in my mouth and how well I do at home.  Bobbie’s cleanings are extremely thorough and I leave knowing that my teeth are spotless and I’m not at risk for gum disease.  Some reviews left here are unfortunate.  If your dental cleaning was painful, then do better at home taking care of your teeth! Bobbie did you a favor! If you truly care about your smile and the health of your teeth, I highly recommend Bobbie and the entire team at Wentworth Street Dental Assoc!

I’ve been going to Dr. Ammons since he started his practice in Summerville, SC. I can truly say Dr. Ammons is a very good dentist. He did my Veneers and later when I wanted implants, he did those also. I always get high compliments wherever I go. He is caring and always have time to find out what my problem is. He is patient and sincere when he ask about me and my family. When he is working on my teeth he usually tell me what to expect …. and he is always right. The staff is equally professional and always a great mood. All I can say is try “Ammons Dental by Design” I guarantee you will be impressed.

I just had some implants put in by Dr. Ammons and he did a fantastic job!  I flew in from Florida to have this done because I can’t find a decent dentist there and I have lived there for 10 years. Dr. Ammons and his staff are awesome. Very attentive and very personal. Sometimes they have emergencies that they need to take care of which sometimes makes your wait a bit longer but no big deal, not all clients realize this so they become frustrated with the wait. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for a great dentist.

I’m looking at doing extensive work and implants so I’ve met with a few specialists. The first specialists had a financial person come at me with the attitude that she was wasting her time. When I went to Ammons they had paperwork to justify the cost, and we talked about options. Bottom line is that they were friendly, happy, professional, and treated me like a person and not like a cash cow.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Ammons as I just moved here and have had the same dentist for years. I felt very comfortable with all the staff and never felt rushed. He told me everything that I needed done and set up a proposal for treatment with no pressure at all. I will be going next week for my first crown and will review again after!

This was my first visit and will be returning. Jesus was warm and friendly. Mallory was very thorough, and the Dentist was excited to show me “the latest technology”, which made me feel I’d made the right choice in picking a practice that invests in their patients’ experience. Every person I made contact with in this office was kind/friendly and that goes a long way these days too!

Joyce H. from Redmond, WA (Source: Yelp)


My husband has Alzheimer’s.  Dental care for him is a challenge and the service from the dentist and his entire staff was excellent in all regards.  Their team provided a great service with a winning attitude.  I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the overall result.  They provided a service that I couldn’t find anywhere else after looking for 4 years.

Marty S. from Mount Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


Just had my first cleaning. I’ve had my new teeth for 6 months now. What a difference these people make in my life every day! Mallory was wonderful and all of the staff is great. My “All On 4” is right up there with Ladin as the best life improvements in which I’ve ever invested. These new chompers are wonderful!! Dr. Ammons is an artist and near magician. If you have any choice in the matter of where you take yourself for dental care, I cannot recommend anyone more highly. I’d give 10 stars if I could.

My son is in college in Charleston. He had an accident that damaged his front    teeth. He needed emergency care, and an implant. Ammons got him in, took care of him and were caring and professional. Then, months later, he called me on a Friday night to say “something didn’t feel right”. I contacted Ammons  and they saw him – over the weekend – the caught the infection early. They went above and beyond to make sure he was okay. I can’t recommend this practice more highly. I am sure they are excellent at basic care as well. But it is rare to have a practice that does this much – over a holiday weekend – to take care of a patient. They are exceptional.

This office is definitely the most friendly and yet efficient places I have ever been and is a reflection of the owner/dentist, Dr. Ammons. John the hygienist is very thorough and gentle at the same time. Every time I have been there the place is very busy yet at the same time I was made to feel that I was their only priority.  I have referred many people to this office and everyone of them has thanked me afterwards. Like a lot of people I do not look forward to dental visits because several in the past were not very pleasant. They consistently asked me during cleanings and dental work whether I am comfortable and my stress level while there is very minimal.

Pre and post visit has been thus far a GREAT experience. Hubby went in to get his 360 CT-scan and is getting work done tomorrow after getting a second opinion elsewhere. After we watched The Root Cause documentary, we both agreed the 360 technology was a great way to tap deeper into our health. From sweet Lola at the front desk, to Donna who is one of the nicest intake people I’ve ever met (sure made me feel special!), to Dr. Ammons who gave it to me straight up and never for a moment did I feel rushed or sitting there like “another $ up for collection”. Looking forward to cultivating a great relationship! PS: My 1st visit was free with a free 360 CT-scan (tests already sent to me the day after per my request) and after almost TWO HOURS of mostly hanging out with Donna and hubby in the intake room, an unprecedented WOW experience. WOW and THANK YOU DOCTOR AMMONS!!!

They fit me in over the holidays for an emergency root canal. Even made time for a quick appt to adjust temp crown for comfort before next procedure. I had been to two other dentists and Ammons was recommended by second dentist (he just couldn’t fit me in his schedule) as he was the dentist he used! I loved Dr. Ammons. He said I didn’t need the extensive work that the first dentist had suggested.(Other dentist said I needed root canals and crowns on several teeth, over 10k worth of work with insurance!) I had rest of work done last week. I had the last wisdom tooth removed and I don’t know what magic he worked but I have had little to no pain. I go back for some adjustments with the crowns and lower bite soon and am looking forward to it! My teeth look so good! The staff was awesome! Crystal went above and beyond in helping figure out the billing with the insurance company to make sure I was able to use all my benefits to lessen my out of pocket as I was going from one year to next in benefits. And, they were far less expensive than the other quotes (I compared work/cost per tooth). The best part is they are one of the few that I’ve found that do sedation which is necessary for me. The staff was very professional while being very friendly and kind which helped ease my anxiety. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ammons and his staff!!!
