Came here bc of online good reviews for a 2nd opinion about $8,000+ “necessary” work prescribed by another dentist. Peninsula precisely explained work that is needed soon (my copay will be $63!!!) and explained how they will monitor trouble areas. I left with no questions or worries, felt respected, satisfied about the quality of care I will receive. This staff is efficient, friendly, skilled and hi-tech. They take most insurance, office is pleasant & they take covid-19 precautions. So glad to have found my great new dentist!

I had a dental emergency while on vacation in Charleston and I was fortunate to have found the right place. The team at Peninsula were all amazing, personable, professional, accommodating, efficient and affordable. I might have to come here all the way from NJ just to see them for all my future dental needs! Highly pleased with the service I received and I’m extremely thankful.

Had a great experience at Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry for my six month checkup. They take COVID protocols seriously which made me comfortable to be there. Lauren did a great job on my cleaning. She put me at ease and made me feel at home. (I get nervous going to the dentist) Dr Wisner was great and explained everything he observed during his exam. I’ve been going to this practice for a couple of years now and have never had a bad experience. Thanks so much!

Hmm…4 fillings replaced and 1 small spot of tooth decay all done in 1 visit?! Yes! No problem since Dr. Wisner is so skilled. Not to mention I got through my whole treatment plan 1st time ever with the same dentist!!!  The TV pics are very interested and funny, and seem to never repeat. Never did a dental review but the experience over the last 9 months has been tremendous!

Wow! My teeth look great thanks to Dr. Wisner and his wonderful staff! I needed a lot of dental work and had delayed getting it done until I found a dentist I trusted. My smile is very important to me so I am pretty particular. I needed an implant, four replacement crowns, a filling and bond work done on my teeth and after much research, I decided to go with Dr Wisner, It was the right decision. Dr Wisner made sure I was comfortabe, he took the time to do things right, I he was patient with all my questions, and completed all the work with great care and skill!. I also appreciate all Michelle and Nicola did to help me thru this process! Everyone i met working there was friendly, caring and very competent in their jobs. I really enjoyed Marla who shares my love for music! The whole office has really positive energy! I am so very happy I chose Peninsula Dentistry and want to thank Dr Wisner and his staff!

I absolutely love this dental practice. Dr. Wisner is a very professional and friendly dentist. The office staff are always very friendly, and ready to help. I had to cancel an appointment, and they rescheduled me easily and nicely. The waits are minimal whether in the wait room or in the chair. I love the TVs in the ceiling with funky pictures. The hygienists are always nice, and make the experience pleasant. The decor of the office is bright and cheery. It almost feels like being in a beach house. I would highly recommend this practice for anyone looking for quality dentistry in a clean and comfortable environment. The customer service is truly outstanding! I’m glad that a friend recommended Peninsula to me!

I moved to Charleston about 5 years ago and this office was what seemed the best choice for price, location and glowing reviews online. It did not disappoint! I love the staff, location and office! I will continuing coming here for as long as they’re doors are open which I hope is a long time!! The FRIENDLIEST STAFF EVER!!

Peninsula is great !My husband and I always have had excellent experiences with them for almost 18 years now Entire staff friendly and excellent at what they do.. Always great to see Pam …she is our touchstone when we have an appointment ! We know we are always in good hands with Dr.Forehand and Dr. Wisner.

Tina McRee (Source: Google)


So thankful to have found this great new dentist. Came here for 2nd opinion on $8000+ work recommend by another dentist…found out very little is needed and can be completed in 2 visits. Staff is professional, respectful, good-humored, patient-centered. Office is hi-tech, pleasant… they take most insurance, do broad range of services. Highly recommend them!

Having had to have some unpleasant dental work as a child made me not so fond of dentist. Then several years ago I went to Peninsula Cosmetic and Family Dentistry and they are amazing. The staff is kind and courteous. The dental hygienist are so patient with me and understand my nervousness. The dentist are amazing. They treat you like family. I will never go anywhere else.

Carrie did a great job cleaning my teeth. They feel and look so clean and white, thank you! Also, Dr. Wisner helped to alleviate the pain I had when biting down by filing the spot on my tooth where I had created friction. No pain, and it was quick and easy. They always do a great job and are very friendly. I was most impressed with their precautionary procedures set in place to handle Covid-19 safely.

I have been a Peninsula patient for years and the dental care I have received has always been first rate plus. Recently,however, I had my first COVID era experience. The protocols the Peninsula team has put in place to protect their patients and staff are well thought out and worked like a charm. I felt completely at ease through the entire visit and never really felt any different than prior to the safety measures having been enacted. Their video perfectly lays out the procedures so you know in advance exactly what to expect. I could not have been more pleased with how things went. Peninsula has, once again, hit it out of the park.

What a great experience. I love the way my teeth feel after they’ve been professionally cleaned. The office is gorgeous. It’s like walking into someone’s living room. The staff is friendly, yet professional. Cutting edge technology coupled with a well educated staff. They are a well run and efficient dental practice, that other professions could learn from. This is a follow up review. My second visit to Peninsula Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. It was my bi annual cleaning and check up. Had just as good of an experience as the first visit. Great staff. Great atmosphere. I will continue to use their services.

I love my dentist and everything that goes with him. The office is beautiful and clean. The rooms are wonderful because you get to watch this slideshow of goofy pictures while they work on your teeth. The hygienists are always extremely sweet and do such an amazing job you don’t even realize they are cleaning your teeth. My dentist is funny, sweet, and honest about telling me about my teeth. He will explain in depth what is going on and what he suggests should happen next. I am grateful for finding a dentist I actually look forward to seeing.

Best dental experiences in my life! Went through three other dentist when we moved to Charleston. Then four different people recommended Peninsula to us! Amazing new techniques, pain free procedures, wonderful results, and the best, most skilled, & warmest staff ever!! Dr. Wisner is a wizard! (Gotta give props to the slide show!!)

Superb experience. Extremely professional, sophisticated, and talented group of folks. Very accommodating, high-end, and reasonably priced. It’s hard to know who to choose, especially for something so important as your teeth, but you won’t be disappointed. If you traditionally don’t like the dentist – give these guys a try. You may change your mind. Thank you for your great work!

Dr. Forehand and Dr. Wisner are hands down the best dentists I have ever seen. Everyone in the office (from the front desk to the docs) is attentive, informative and easy to deal with. No robot answering machines, no crazy bills coming two weeks after your appointment that you were never warned about, no rushing through your appointment. There’s always a kind receptionist on the other end, an upfront print out detailing any costs and a dentist that takes their time to meet with you. I have sent a handful of people here who were new to the area and I really meant it— Peninsula is THE best in the area (and that’s after trying more than a few)

I am truly terrified of any type of Dentist from an experience I had as a child. It got so bad to the point where I couldn’t even drive myself as a grown woman to the Dentist because I would start freaking out. However, Mallory made me feel so comfortable she was so patient I know I can be a lot to handle. She gave me the first real hope in a very long time that I could start loving the dentist again! Thank you so much, I cant wait for my next appointment…crazy right. I would recomme them to ANYONE!

A very pleasant surprise! First restoration following a move from Finger lakes, NY 9 months ago. Broken crown, in the next day leaving with a new zirconia crown. No impressions, all computer generated and made in a small CNC type milling unit. Great fit, feels good and looks good! Dr. W was able to evaluate the already root canaled tooth for viability, prepared the tooth with core build-up plus rod. I am no stranger to restoration with 12 plus crowns, one implant and about 10 root canals. Very confident and pleased with his skills and the attending staff! Bravo!

Absolutely amazing office! Brand new building, everything in the office is brand new, the staff is so friendly and accommodating. Called with tooth pain for immediate new patient appointment and was offered immediate opening, no wait time and dentist was in the room within 2 minutes. So glad I have found a new dentist (I’m from New York) and I don’t have anxiety going like I used to! Definitely recommend them!

Sarah B. from Johns Island, Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at this practice since before the beginning. Seriously. All three of the dentists are great. They stay up to date with current advancements and have great  bedside  manner. The office staff, dental hygienists, and dental assistants are kind, courteous, and efficient. With few exceptions, appointments start and stop on time with minimal discomfort or surprises. What else can you reallly ask for at the dentist? No one WANTS to be at the dentist, right? This practice  does a great job of maximizing the comforts (eg soothing interior design colors and entertaining visuals on the ceiling) while minimizing the discomforts. We will be back!!

Absolutely awesome staff!! Dr. Wisner is a wizard!! Worked me in for a cracked filling and cracked tooth and made time to fix both issues. He and his staff were very kind, gentle, efficient, and caring. I have never been to a better dentist office.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this practice! From the very kind woman who answered the phone when I was panicking about a dental emergency to the dental hygienists and dentist herself – everyone was so kind and calming. I’ve had a few traumatic dental experiences as of late and really stress about the dentist and having work done. Everyone put me at ease and was so sweet. I understood exactly what the problem was and what needed to be done and felt like I got the best support through the dental work. I had Dr. McPherson and she was incredible!! Highly, highly recommend! Especially if you have dental anxiety. Huge thank you to everyone who helped me today – words can’t express how grateful I am.

I am not a fan of going to the Dentist. I have never felt really “heard or understood” about my needs or wishes. I also have had issues with staff at previous dentist offices being confused, unprofessional, and rude…just going through the motions and not considering my needs. This was the best experience I have EVER had! I feel confident and comfortable with the staff, the dentist, and their recommendations. I will never go anywhere else after one visit and I am going to get my husband to start going here as well! Thank you for your client driven assessment! Amy C Summy

I had a great experience. My dental hygienist, Jessica, made me feel very comfortable and helped ease my fear of going to the dentist. She was so sweet and made me feel safe and understood. I appreciate her energy and kindness. I recommend this Dentist office to anyone. The facility is beautiful, the people are professional.

Dr Wisner and his staff are the best in the area and have helped me through complex dental problems I have always received straightforward opinions and presented with all options including financial options and dental plan to move forward in a way quick efficient way- I love the atmosphere clean professional and never felt treated with any judgment. Dr Snyder followed my dental injuries from when I was 12 years old as I was in an accident and I couldn’t be happier than the continued care from Dr Wisner thereafter. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Highly recommended

My daughter is special needs and is completely deaf. She just had her first visit and she loved everyone there. They were so good with her and so caring. After seeing how they treat their patients and the genuine care they showed. I will never go anywhere else. This will now become our family dentists.

Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is by far the best practice in Charleston. I have been going here for almost ten years, and they have always gone above and beyond for me. Everyone is incredibly friendly, and Ellie is THE BEST. They have always been way ahead of all dental trends and technology, but above all, patient comfort and care is where they stand out the most. I always have a fresh blanket if I’m cold and have plenty of entertainment to keep me occupied. I actually look forward to going to the dentist. Dr. Wisner and his team are the standard of excellence.

Thanks go to the receptionist Bethany for fitting me to the schedule while being a great listener. I need to thank her personally when I return in two weeks. A difficult transition after being with the same dentist for 45 years. I found Dr. Wisner to be TOPs, along with his assistant. I am very great full he was able to see me at the last minute after my procrastination

Amanda Castellone (Source: Google)


I was really impressed with their new health and sanitizing efforts! I felt very secure in my appointment today. They used multiple measures to make sure I’m clean and healthy and they made it clear that they were taking efforts to wipe and sanitize every item and surface multiple times per appointment. It was a great dental visit today!

Over many years, I’ve had more exposure to fine dentistry than most. I am delighted to share that Peninsula is better than any others I’ve been exposed to. Outstanding knowledge, efficiency, consideration, patience plus willingness to take my needs and preferences into account—always with kindness and a smile. I am delighted to fully recommend, the dentists and entire staff.

Dr. Wisner is always professional and provides valuable advice regarding the best dental treatment. All the dental professionals and staff at Peninsula Cosmetic and Family Dentistry treat patients with dignity and respect and they provide the best quality care. A few years ago I had a dental emergency and sent an email to the office at 9 pm. Dr. Wisner personally answered the email a few minutes later and said he would see me at 8 am. He even promised to have me out the door in time for work! I have been a loyal patient since 1983 when Dr. Howard Snyder was the sole practitioner. When Dr. Snyder retired Dr. Wisner became my dentist and I wouldn’t consider another dental practice.

As someone who is generally terrified of going to the dentist, Jay and the entire staff at Peninsula Family Dentistry make me feel so comfortable and at ease (with no pain at all…something that is really important for me given my anxiety about going to the dentist!). The office is beautiful, and everyone is so friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Everything was explained clearly to me so I knew exactly what to expect, which further helped alleviate my fears. Most importantly, of course, the work I’ve had done here is honestly the best I’ve ever received. Highly recommended!

Friendly, attentive staff. They explained everything really well and I didn’t have to wait in the lobby for someone to come get me for more than a couple minutes. They were welcoming and professional. I highly recommend them to new people in Charleston. Having recently moved here I was afraid of having to hunt for a great, new dentist, but I made the right choice on my first visit here

Dr. Wisner, Dr. Forehand and staff are amazing and so responsive to dental emergencies providing the very best of care. They have always acted quickly to keep our travel plans intact, and even took time handle my out of town daughter’s issue. Extremely caring group with state of the art first rate care. Highly recommend them!
